“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke
When 21 laborers in America die because the Obama administration has cut funding to OSHA to the point where they only have one guy to check on 50,000 job sites (yes, it’s an exaggeration, slightly), neoliberal talking heads like Bill O’Reilly get hard-ons and they call it “freedom”. Or when 21 laborers anywhere die because they can’t afford things like medicine even though they are working 50 hours a week (not an exaggeration), neoliberals like Bill start salivating at the thought of all that glorious “growth”
That’s because, as we all know by now, “Freedom” to the members of the neoliberal Washington Consensus (neocons, New Dems, (big “L”) Libertarians) means “freedom from New Deal social and economic justice reforms… and “Growth” simply means “the growth of the billionaire class’ profit margins”
So imagine my shock and awe when I heard Bill O’Reilly calling for a new “Holy War”, a new Crusades if you will, over the poorly produced video of the deaths of 21 Coptic Christian laborers in Libya at the hands of the fictitious “ISIS™”
“The Holy War is here and, unfortunately, it seems the president of the United States will be the last one to acknowledge it…I’m gonna also make a call …for every cleric in the country next Sunday, Saturday, Friday in the mosques, with the imams, to address this with their congregation and to say enough, that we people of good faith have to tell our leader to get in gear. I’d like to see every cleric in this country do that. …Let’s make that happen. And I want every pastor, every priest, every rabbi and every imam to email me personally and tell me you’re gonna do that and I’ll read as many on the air as I can.” Bill O’Reilly
Simultaneously, fake progressive sites like the Huffington Post are producing equally sophomoric propaganda pieces in support of Obama’s endless war of aggression in lock-step with those of the O’Reilly faction. Thus the true nature of the Washington Consensus becomes easier to see.
Let’s break this down just a tiny bit if we could on a few of the most basic elements of this event starting with:
