re: Hedges & 9/11
All of this fascism and idiocy was preordained by the afternoon of September 11th. What has been revealed since was that at minimum the White House allowed the attacks to happen in order to bring fascism to the USA. Chris Hedges, Noam Chomsky and the left so-called alternative media have been responsible for burying this issue and allowing fascism to roll in unimpeded. Whether it’s cowardice or compromise, it cannot stand. And they cannot stand in the face of the facts.
I cannot stress enough how 9/11 directly led to Trump. They have gotten away with not only allowing our “defenses” to fail spectacularly (Rebuilding America’s Defenses), but to keep the Al Qaeda menace alive in Libya, Syria and beyond. They have brought Al Qaeda back from the dead with ISIS, handing Trump his next war pretext.
Chris Hedges hides from this reality, making him useless, impotent, irrelevant, choose your own term. He and the “left” have failed to oppose the Reichstag Fire, the Treason at the heart of this new World Order.
Of what use are his words if America overwhelmingly still thinks it has an independent enemy out there waiting to strike? The real terrorism is aided and abetted by US intelligence with its partners in crime, most importantly: Saudi Arabia. Nothing is ever done about this, not even after Trump’s hollow pledges.
