The 1st Annual Joe Goebbels Triumph of Propaganda Award Goes to BILL O’REILLY / Faux News
A man whose lies depend upon the deeply ingrained ignorance and bias of his viewers, their aversion to fact-checking and critical thinking, Bill O’Reilly has finally Triumphed (TM) in broadcasting the single biggest whopper of the year.
“Every single murderer over 40 years that I have covered in these circumstances has been either atheistic, agnostic, no religious basis at all.”
Bill O’Reilly has erased religious lunacy from history. According to him, religion has no role in any murders in America, for the entire modern age. How false is this utterly ridiculous claim?
That list has been up online for over two years. Bill must have clicked right by it.
Those are just the most high-profile examples, for whatever reasons, shock value, timing, excessiveness. Religiously motivated violence has a long tradition spanning back millennia. Everyone knows this. Except perhaps the man whom the grossly ignorant turn to for news: Bill O’Reilly.
Here are some more cases of “Christian” murderers and terrorists, and other relevant data, which O’Reilly claims do not exist:
“[Anders] Breivik saw himself as a Christian warrior in the midst of what he called an “existential conflict” with Islam – a modern knight confronting foreign hordes … [his] manuscript lays out plans for the formation of a Christian army, known as the Knights Templar, to wage “guerrilla warfare against the Multiculturalist Alliance through a constant campaign of shock attacks.”
“Reuters and other news sources reported in June that the woman, aged 37, was beaten to death at the end of May in the coastal Zhaoyuan city in Shandong province for refusing to give her telephone number to members of the Church of the Almighty God.”
“Indeed, the LRA is known to orchestrate kidnappings, railroading young boys into fighting while forcing young girls into sexual slavery. Those who refused to fight were hacked to pieces. …The goal of the LRA is pretty straight forward: they want a Bible-based state that uses the Ten Commandments as guide posts. “
“Government witnesses, as well as Mr. Merrell, testified that the defendants belonged to an anti-Government cell of a paramilitary group with strongly held religious beliefs against banks and abortion. …A fourth man, Brian Ratigan, 38, also of Sandpoint, was arrested on March 13 in Spokane and charged with participating in the July 12 Planned Parenthood bombing and U.S. Bank robbery.”
“In opening statements Monday, a Texas prosecutor described how a mother smashed the head of her infant son with a rock and then led her two older boys outside and did the same to them…”
“A 15-year-old boy died after losing too much blood when his legs were severed in what police believe was an intentional attack outside the Somali Center of Kansas City Thursday evening. … Family and people heavily involved with the Somali Center say a man had been threatening people in the Muslim community for months now on Facebook. Several others say that same man pointed a gun at them, threatening to kill them because of their Muslim religion.”
“Two independent acts of religiously-motivated violence have Israel on edge this morning. Overnight, arsonists attacked two Palestinian homes in Duma, a village in the West Bank. An infant was killed in the attack and the remaining members of the family were critically injured… In Jerusalem yesterday, an ultra-Orthodox man rushed a gay pride parade while wielding a knife, stabbing six people.”
Over 7.000 “hate crimes” in 2013 with 17.4% being religiously motivated. This comes to approximately 1200 per year in the US.
For Bill O’Reilly’s long and distinguished train of deceptions, gibberish, bullying and religious bigotry, he is a well-deserved recipient of this, the 2015 Joe Goebbels Award for the Triumph of Propaganda. Brought to you by Political Film Blog.

The big story: vaccine propaganda has convinced “parents” to change their beliefs.
The actual issue of vaccine safety, and what exactly is in them, is completely irrelevant. Time Magazine, UPI and a bunch of corporate mouthpieces (many which don’t allow comments) have made the story about polling the general public, rather than that product/brand they are purporting to sell: “Science.”
Yes “Science” is Brand One. So says Time Rag.
Science, which has never sought to be a popularity contest, is winning this one all the same.
“Science” is now opinion polling. Because that’s where true scientific validity comes from, right? The only alternative, according to the corporate thugs, is to be an evil “Anti-Vaxxer.” One is even provided, in a staged mock-up of a police lineup, a criminal! Don’t be like the evil “anti-vaxxer.” Join the “science” brigade and take your shots unquestioningly. Jab your infant with whatever we tell you to inject, or mandate by force of law. You have no choice, and you have no say in the matter–unless you agree with us in a poll that is.
Real scientists aren’t so cut and dry about what the pharmaceutical industry and its ignorant lapdogs in government and media are shoveling. Unlike Time and UPI, I post actual studies, actual evidence and note the details that matter.
Does it matter to you if you newborn is dosed with aluminum and mercury? These metals have long term risk, and are clearly toxic. Why are they in the vaccines in the first place? Why aren’t they being removed and banned?
The vaccine industry in the USA is completely protected from damages. You cannot sue them, since the 1980s, and the US government serves as a buffer, or perhaps as a protection racket, to keep pharmaceutical giants unaccountable to their victims. The US media’s whitewashing of the vaccine issue reports none of this, and instead relies on statements from people like comedian Jim Carrey (Time again). This is propaganda, not investigation. The journalistic malfeasance of these rags is glaring.
Here is some of the actual recent news regarding problems with vaccines:
Tens of thousands of teen girls suffer serious illnesses after HPV cervical cancer jab. We didn’t hear about that one in the US. Also in the UK it was reported that the Swine Flu vaccine, “Pandemrix, can cause narcolepsy and cataplexy in about one in 16,000 people, and many more are expected to come forward with the symptoms.”
Here in the US we see the federal government omitting “Recent Vaccine Injury Data From Website,” in an apparent cover-up of inconvenient facts. What’s being covered-up?
“Since January of 2014, the number of flu vaccine cases conceded by the government is more than double the previous eight years combined.”
But we’ve just touched the tip of the iceberg. Aluminum, a widely used component of numerous vaccines, carries potential neurological risks. The Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry recently published that, “Efforts should be made to reduce Al exposure from vaccines.” You wouldn’t learn this from Time, although it is clearly not difficult to locate the study. There’s that pesky buzzword “science” again. Time is not a science journal, never was, never will be. So why do so many Americans get their science from a non-science rag with an agenda to push?
Nowhere in Time will you read about the class action lawsuit against Merck for lying and falsifying the results of its mumps vaccine.
Merck has known for a decade that its mumps vaccine is “far less effective” than it tells the government, and it falsified test results and sold millions of doses of “questionable efficacy,” flooding and monopolizing the market, a primary caregiver claims in a federal antitrust class action.
We’ve not even touched upon the controversy over mercury, and the standards that allow massive relative doses of this toxic metal to be injected into the tiniest of humans. Some headway was made to eliminate Thimerosal, a preservative. But it remains in numerous vaccines today. The FDA, which describes Thimerosal as “50% mercury by weight,” goes on to note some worst case scenarios from exposures to the preservative:
“These studies reported local necrosis, acute hemolysis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, acute renal tubular necrosis, and central nervous system injury including obtundation, coma, and death.”
This is what the corporate state would mandate you inject into your newborn baby. If you want a second opinion then you are demonized in the mainstream press.
The Way the Wind Blows
The recent change in general public perception, the result of much perception management and well funded propaganda comes as the power of government is being twisted to force the public to accept mandatory shots. It’s a direct assault on the fundamental right to say “no,” on medical consent. These are the practices of a fascist regime, not of a free society. The Sacramento Bee exposed the massive influx of bribes to politicians prior to California’s vote on mandatory vaccination.
Industry gave more than $2 million to current lawmakers in 2013-14
Pharmaceutical industry advertising keeps rags like Time afloat. Large ads for pills, legalized drug pushing essentially, are a major factor to keep them in business. These structural ties cannot be ignored when discussing obvious slant and bias in their so-called reporting. The editors of journals like Time are not impartial, and they are not scientists. They are employed to present a certain slant on issues, and their lack of basic scientific curiosity is both striking and anti-scientific. Science is an investigation of the evidence, not a hamfisted exercise in demonization and ridicule.
The message we are to receive today is: Trust Big Pharma. They pay our bills. They’re good people. They are the embodiment of “science.” Anyone who disagrees is an “anti-vaxxer” and to be stoned.
Clearly it’s a propaganda offensive, not a scientific one.

This is dramatically illustrated when we compare the treatment of “worthy” and “unworthy” victims, categories that Noam Chomsky and I stressed in Manufacturing Consent. (Chapter 2 is entitled “Worthy and Unworthy Victims”). Worthy victims are victims of enemy and target states, whereas unworthy victims are killed by us or one of our allies or clients. We gave details on the huge media attention to the murder of a Polish priest in Communist Poland in 1984, a single worthy victim who, as we showed, got more U.S. media attention than 100 religious victims of U.S. client states in Latin America (1965-1985), taken together. The latter were treated as unworthy by virtue of the client status of the killers, although eight of the 100 were actually U.S. citizens.
