|America’s Government leads a “coalition” of gangsters...|
This is not the America of the U.S. Constitution and of its Founders; it is not consistent with their ideals, neither in domestic policy, nor in foreign policy. This is the government that has a higher percentage of its population locked up in prison than any other nation on the planet. Some “Land of the Free!” Such hypocrisy! This Government is rot. And it is bipartisan rot — both of its political Parties. Both of them are controlled by America’s aristocracy. This is a one-dollar-one-vote Government, and it overwhelmingly locks up its poorest and least educated, not the actual big-time crooks, who own and run America’s international corporations and pollute and poison the entire world, while getting away scot-free as honored billionaires. America’s aristocracy must be brought down, but the public are duped by it into accepting it as a ‘democracy’ — despite its deep-seated contempt against the poor, and its racism, and America’s increasingly scandalous imperialism (an extension abroad of its supremacist attitude, which is routine for any aristocracy), trying now even to threaten the International Criminal Court into accepting the idea that America and its allies are immune from prosecution, or even from investigation, regarding possible international war crimes. This Government is the absolute pits, an imperialistic-fascist regime on steroids.
I’m referring to the evidence that North Vietnam — after the peace treaty had been signed on Jan. 27, 1973 in Paris — held back hundreds of American prisoners, keeping them as bargaining chips to ensure getting Washington’s promised $3.25 billion in war reparations. The funds were never delivered, and the prisoners were never released. Both sides insisted to their people and the world that all POWs had been returned, challenging the voluminous body of facts to the contrary. But behind the scenes, where the press did not go then or now, President Nixon accused Hanoi of not returning a multitude of prisoners.
So: even that reporter shamed himself by lying in order to protect the honor of the U.S. Government by his pretending that this incident was embarrassing to both Governments instead of primarily (or even only) to his own Government (to which the POW — prisoners of war — matter wasn’t merely embarrassing, but it was outright traitorous against its own people). Schanberg lied by calling this a ‘ransom’-demand. He was playing along with the Nixonian myth, even though he was a partisan Democrat who could instead have cited it as being yet another reason to condemn that Republican President.
^5000The mainstream imperialist media lie CONSTANTLY. Literally 24/7. And it's getting worse. All of them do it: radio, tv, the newspapers, the movies. The internet. No exceptions. The corporate Big Lie is pervasive and totalitarian. CBS does it. NBC does it. ABC does it. CNN does it. FOX does it. NPR does it. And of course the NYTimes and WaPo do it. Thousands of "diverse" voices telling you the same lies. Enough to convince anyone.
