Lee Camp, of Redacted Tonight, gets it.

He explains why it was totally acceptable for a 16 year old girl to slap an Israeli soldier.  

Watch, learn AND react!

Now go email your Congress person and your MSM provider of choice and ask them WHY they haven't reacted to this story even half as much as they did the story of Malala!

Oh... and I don't give a flying fuck if any Israeli Occupation Forces faces were harmed in the making of this post.  No a single one!

Free Ahed Tamimi! Now there's a future leader, or just a kick-ass human who knows right from wrong.

Fox News probably still tries to distinguish itself as being not MSM at the same time they make claims that they are the most watched on u.s. TV medium.  But Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Info wars and similar fascist ideologue sites are different from non-Faux News media to a high degree because Fox talents do react to events, they do not just report events, they are reactionary and they have to be in order to ensure continuity in their narrative of fear and hate mongering.

I'd be satisfied if u.s. MSM just reported on #freeahed.  I'd be thrilled if MSM reacted in a helpful way toward Ahed's situation under zionazi occupation.  Given the degree of current financial interests of zionaUSeA persuasion afflicting (actually it's its lifeblood) not just the Faux networks but with few exceptions adulterating all of u.s. print and tv media, i can sympathize with reporters/newsmedia talent who refrain* from publically reacting to zionauseoUS events in Palestine.  I still very much expect them to report such events truthfully and fully.

Mandatory service by Israeli in zionist IOF, Israeli Offense Force or as you name it Israeli Occupation Forces, essentially means that there are no Israeli civilians, no Zionist civilians in Israel, only Zionist soldiers... unless they die by anti-zionazi violence when they are not their wearing combat fatigues, in which case in zionausea-speak they are called "an innocent civilian".  The u.s. govt and msm go along with that lie in the sense that the u.s. aligns with the zionazi perspective that Palestine doesn't exist, never did, and the case has always been that the jewish state was maliciously inhabitated by guilty civilians until the u.s. allowed its rightful owners, militant Zionists, to reclaim as much as they chose however they wanted.

*Luckily we have RT because its media talent -like Lee Camp, Abby Martin and others- is relatively free to weave reaction and commentary into their reporting; but, in contrast to Faux News, RT like Al Jazeera more often weaves onto a tapestry of facts and truth, not myths and lies.

RT under fire because it ‘gives a voice to critics of US systemwhile MSM parrot govt line

Published time: 10 Jan, 2018 14:57  https://on.rt.com/8wle

Political commentator John Bosnitch said RT has given a voice to “the critics of the US system,” and those critics come from the US itself, including people opposing the US establishment, its foreign interventions and “the deep state” since at least the 1950s.

The US is not used to hearing more than one official narrative, the analyst argued, adding “the White House, the Congress and the arms of the government, and the deep state, the police and intelligence services, define the [media] narrative.”

According to Bosnitch, top political brass and business captains hold private meetings with the media outlet owners or editors, “telling them, ‘here’s the line’.”

If journalists working for the US media – who Bosnitch called “a cheering team for the US military industrial complex” – want to stay on air, they have to “parrot the line.” After that point, it does not matter what the journalists themselves make of the news they are covering, or what they have researched on their own, he said.

Adam Garrie, Managing Editor at Duran.com, offered a more emotive comment on CBS, saying the“disgraced mainstream media” were trying “to put the burden of proof on RT to defend itself, where RT has done everything to the books.”

He said RT was doing what any other media outlet should do, namely covering news and providing differing opinions – a basic right embraced by America’s First Amendment which is “hiding under the layer of dust” in the same way the UN Charter “has been buried under the river of blood shed by the US and their allies.”

If Simonyan told her life story at a Golden Globe awards ceremony, “people would’ve applauded it,”Garrie said. “But because it is Russia and because it is RT, she is vilified.

While repeatedly bashing RT and other Russian media outlets over their alleged involvement in an “information war,” the US studiously avoids mentioning its own engagement in information warfare, said author and journalist Max Blumenthal, who is the Senior Editor of AlterNet’s Grayzone Project.

Representative Jackie Speier from California has called for RT to be banned, Blumenthal pointed out, adding: "What we’ve seen is an attack on press freedom in the US. And ‘60 Minutes’ was part and parcel of that attack by siding with really what should be a discredited intelligence report … and roundup producing high-school level content analysis of RT from two years ago, focusing on shows that aren’t even on the network anymore.”

Stahl repeatedly asked Simonyan about Russia and RT allegedly “supporting” Donald Trump during his election campaign and about other instances of suspected interference in US internal affairs though her references to the “US intelligence reports” were reduced to the controversial report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) dating back to January 2017. Riddled with factual inaccuracies and not providing any hard evidence, the ODNI report featured a quite hollow seven-page annex devoted to RT.

Commenting on the ‘Russian meddling’ allegations, Martin McCauley, a British historian and Russia researcher at the University College of London (UCL), said the Americans “do love conspiracy theories,” particularly in cases when “something is going wrong in America.”

So, the media are feeding on them, he told RT, because “that attracts viewers, and if you attract viewers, you get more revenue from advertising.”  -- www.rt.com/usa/415490-rt-us-alternative-views/

worth repeating, emphatically:

Americans “do love conspiracy theories,” particularly in cases

when “something is going wrong in America,”

to which i'd add, again emphatically: 

especially they love alleged conspiracies against them by "foreign powers"

who they can demonize to justify the horrendous waste of human and physical resources to be 

righteoUS warriors for western, mainly u.s., corporatism.

While much of what you declare here is true as far as the overall line of BS given to the AmeriKKKan public ... don't try and tell people who know how the Internet works and where it came from that Russian hacking and Active Measures do not account for a HUGE amount of online behaviors or that they didn't "swing" the recent election to the Confederate Yankee who understood none of it himself, or his offspring who thought fooling around on social media made them web experts. The biggest culprit is actually the thief Zuckerberg for giving the Reds the platform they needed, followed closely by the expert hackers who handed Assange his revenge, though not an exit from his tower. The Math is entirely clear, Reagan did not drop the Iron Curtain, Lech Welesa did with help from actual Rocket Scientists who had all been using UNIX shell accounts globally for years. They understand the underpinnings of what makes ning and pretty much everything else work WAY better than the so called US Digerati, and we are currently losing the cyber-war against them. Credulous fools across the country still try and avoid fluoride thanks to Khrushchev. The rest is too lengthy to go on with here, but, the racist jerk nincompoop sucker born every minute militia members of Northern Michigan and elsewhere who swang a three million vote victory into an college loss are so easily manipulated by the cheapest Facebook ads possible that it literally might have been less than RT paid Flynn to fool those imbeciles into a vote they will pay for dearly and for a very long time.

So Surfer, is it that "Russian hacking and Active Measures" took advantage of United States' "racist jerk nincompoop suckers to whom America is giving birth every minute" by helping those suckers find a presidential candidate they could love with as much gusto as they hated the alternative?  Compared to the funding that the Mercers, Adelsons and Kochs individually put into the propaganda war to elect Trump, what percent of each billionaires 'contribution' would you think equals what “the enemy of our great democracy" Russia spent to get Trump elected? Could the per cent be so small as to make incomparable the amount converted from rubles to subvert our circus of quadrennial elections?  Just how viable could the alleged democracy of the u.s. be if it takes so little money to throw it away from the better person?  Don’t you think James Comey deserves some credit for getting Trump elected? I’d say so, Republican officialdom played Comey like a violin and it didn’t cost a thing because Republican officials and their staffs were on the government payroll anyway.  And the DNC, doesn’t it deserve some credit for helping elect Trumpers?  Sanders had a better chance of beating Trump but the DNC was sabotaging Sanders to advance the Clintons.  And then Hillary herself, doesn’t she get some credit for exhibiting her crookedness re Wall Street and Goldman Sachs, her Iraq, Syria and Libya regime change wars, her zionaUSeous cuddling with Saudi and other Sunni ISIS funding regimes? 

And then you say this: “The biggest culprit is actually the thief Zuckerberg for giving the Reds the platform they needed “ … “the Reds”? Really?  In that bit you reveal a lot more about yourself than your advanced age and profound ideological bias, even unrequited hatred.

Why doesn’t Ahed get a reaction anything like the one for Malala?

  1. Malala got shot
  2. Malala was non-violent
  3. Malala was much younger
Comment by Maui Surfer on January 11, 2018 at 10:15am

Moki- yes, Comey also swang the election and it turns out is some sort of traitor in the strangest way. And, yes, The DNC engaged in a round of favoritism behavior to their precious Hillary that kept Berney, who likely would have won, from winning.

That said, they still won by 3 million votes. The actual electoral victory was achieved through algorithmic analysis of the redneck scum of Northern Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania where they were played exactly like the Stradivarius fools they are for PENNIES on the dollar thanks to Zuckerberg's volume over quality ad platform and the Reds posting bots and Active Measure agents. That's exactly what happened, but of course, as I say myself right above you, the rest is too lengthy to go over here in this forum.

Comment by koshersalaami on January 11, 2018 at 11:07am

Of course the DNC engaged in a round of favoritism. The DNC was apparently broke going into the campaign and Hillary’s campaign bailed them out. If we’d known that up front we’d have known what to expect. I assume any Democratic competitor would have been at a disadvantage but an opponent without real party affiliation had no friends in the organization in the way he needed. The problem now is that he still doesn’t. So now the question becomes what to do about a centrist DNC with a voter base that really isn’t. My own suggestion is essentially a rogue shadow DNC.
