Roberto Sirvent and Danny Haiphong have explored the albatross of myths, legends, lies and damn lies around America’s neck in their book American Exceptionalism and American Innocence: A People’s History of Fake News—From the Revolutionary War to the “War on Terror.” They look into America’s closet of historical secrets and expose them. They knock down the stuff that is just made up. The authors explain why the US habitually denies its own bad behavior, and projects it onto others.

Over the centuries the US has developed an illusion of grandeur. It imagines itself as indispensable and exceptional, unlike any nation that has ever existed. Exceptionalism means not having to say you are sorry or pay for your mistakes. Being exceptional means you are the law. You are the policeman, the judge, the jury and the executioner.

To enforce its exceptionalism the US has built a mighty military. The price for its grandiose military has been the neglect of the American people. The US is addicted to militarism and violence. From its founding the US was a violent country. It used violence to acquire and occupy the land, and to gain independence from Great Britain. The US maintained that God was on its side, and it was innocence of any wrongdoing. The US just made it up that it was Manifest Destiny that it should become an empire. Americans saw themselves as being on a civilizing mission for God.

The Myth of Manifest Destiny

Movies glorifying and romanticizing the westward expansion of the US were an early theme of motion pictures. One of the first silent movies was a Western produced in 1903: “The Great Train Robbery”. Right from the beginning motion pictures created false narratives and myths.

Manifest Destiny was an expression of white supremacy. A 1915 silent move spectacle was The Birth of a Nation, which falsely recasts the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era. It portrays the South as a victim, depicts blacks as depraved, and the Ku Klux Klan as a heroic white protector of America’s virginity. After featuring the movie in the White House, President Woodrow Wilson said:

“It is like writing history with lightning. And my only regret is that it is all so terribly true.”

Hollywood perpetuates America’s spirit of exceptionalism, often in cahoots with the power elites of the ruling class. Up until the late 1960’s Western movies were a regular theme, which was later adapted to television too. Movies, radio and television were revolutionary forms of entertainment, information, advertising, and propaganda in the 20th century.

A hack exposed UK government propagandists who are literally “on the payroll.”

 

While those same documents claim he has retired from the State Department, Leventhal’s own Linkedin page lists him as a current “Senior Disinformation Advisor” to the State Department.

 

I’ve posted on this previously. The corporate lie factory MSM continues to ignore this foreign meddling in our democracy. We are under assault by British covert intelligence propagandists. The winds are blowing in the wrong direction.

Facebook is now censoring what the Nazis did, what they admitted to, and what current-day Nazis are also doing. 

My account has been repeatedly frozen for basic modern History 101 stuff. The brain-dead morons who control content there are essentially helping the rise of fascism, whether through ignorance or through intent.

My money is on them being some of the most stupid individuals you’re likely to meet, badly programmed human robots.

So, now the rise of fascism is off-limits there. You will be directly attacked, your account frozen, and then kicked off permanently for basically telling people what they should have learned in high school.

The American president has over 6,000 lies chronicled, many of them repetitive and belligerent attacks on groups. That is the Big Lie principle, something that is verboten at Zuckerberg’s little empire of shitheads.

A massive list of ex-friends popped up simultaneously, from Facebook Purity. It looks like FB purged more than a hundred people from my account simultaneously as it suspended it. The odds of so many all deciding to unfriend me at the same moment makes it implausible. This happened the first time too, but I didn’t bother mentioning it.

That website attacks dissidents, in this case, dissidents fighting against Naziism and for the truth. That is a major fucking problem.

“Omidyar has continued to fund USAID”

Evil keeps growing. I’ve had a run-in with the scumbag behind “Bellingcat,” who called PFB a Russian propaganda website! I think I threatened to sue the reptile, and he went right away.

Omidyar’s Intercept Teams Up with War-Propaganda Firm Bellingcat

 

Bellingcat regularly works with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), which – according to the late journalist Robert Parry – “engages in ‘investigative journalism’ that usually goes after governments that have fallen into disfavor with the United States and then are singled out for accusations of corruption.” OCCRP is notably funded by USAID and the controversial George Soros-funded Open Society Foundations.

…Bellingcat’s founder Elliott Higgins is employed by the Atlantic Council, which is partially funded by the U.S. State Department, NATO and U.S. weapons manufacturers.

U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Syrian Government Workers After Sarin Attack

ALLEGED “sarin attack” that is disputed by half the world. No evidence required, merely the claims of the Trump junta and Al Qaeda in Idlib.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Monday imposed sanctions on 271 employees of the Syrian government agency it said was responsible for producing chemical weapons and ballistic missiles, an effort to impose a sweeping punishment after a sarin attack on civilians this month.

…It seeks to punish those behind this month’s chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun and previous ones carried out by Mr. Assad’s government, and to deter others contemplating similar actions.

This is FAKE NEWS, as it violates journalistic ethics. No mention of the other side of the story makes it to print.

If there’s “sarin” at that crater, then all of those guys are dead within minutes.

On March 20 the NY Times called Trump a serial liar:

All the President’s Lies

As soon as he gets on board the CIA’s criminal assault on Syria he’s a hero that can speak no wrong.

Could this be why nobody believes the corporate media anymore and most despise it?

“With some of the country’s most influential trade groups and global corporations as clients, we run many of the major op-ed campaigns in the U.S. We place roughly 3,000 op-eds per year.”
