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.

Think about THIS: 

Not even Ben Norton, at “Alternet” Grayzone Project–who is reporting these facts–will use the word Treason in his articles. Not him. Not Blumenthal. Not one paid journalist I can name. We live in a mind-controlled bubble of enforced cognitive dissonance. We are supposedly “at war” with Al Qaeda since the week of the September 11th attacks. Nobody disputes this. There was an Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) against Al Qaeda, passed in the Congress, joyfully signed by Bush. So–shipping them weapons is Treason. It’s not subtle. It’s not theoretical. It’s the official narrative!!! But, not one of the paid flunkies in the media will say the obvious: giving Syria’s Al Qaeda “rebels” American weapons is high Treason…

 

US greenlights missiles for al-Qaeda-linked, Turkish-backed Salafi-jihadists occupying Syria’s Idlib

This “moderate” FSA coalition is led by commanders from the Salafi-jihadist militias Ahrar al-Sham and Jaysh al-Ahrar. It also includes former al-Qaeda ally Nour al-Din al-Zenki (which is notorious for beheading pro-government fighters, and which was directly armed by the CIA.)

…In March 2017, The Grayzone published video and photographic evidence that showed rebranded al-Qaeda using US-made anti-tank missiles to attack Syrian government-held territory.

IDLIB:

Idlib was first captured by Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra and other Takfiri allies in March 2015. Al-Nusra immediately proceeded to massacre the Druze minority and besiege nearby Shia-majority villages.

Despicable den of snakes getting much-needed attention. This is the same rag that employs terrorist-lover Michael Weiss, who probably should be investigated for propaganda aid to Al Qaeda.

Perhaps it’s right in the title: 666…

Environmental activists and animal rights activists are categorized as “domestic terrorists” by the FBI. So they are sent to these special black holes where they can’t communicate with the outside world.
