Article is from Truthdig, which I’ve had some problems with over their 9/11 denialism. The 9/11 attacks led to this whole fiasco, but here you go…

Thought Police for the 21st Century

In late April and early May the World Socialist Web Site, which identifies itself as a Trotskyite group that focuses on the crimes of capitalism, the plight of the working class and imperialism, began to see a steep decline in readership. The decline persisted into June. Search traffic to the World Socialist Web Site has been reduced by 75 percent overall. And the site is not alone. AlterNet’s search traffic is down 71 percent, Consortium News is down 72 percent, Global Research and Truthdig have seen declines. And the situation appears to be growing worse.

The reductions coincided with the introduction of algorithms imposed by Google to fight “fake news.” Google said the algorithms are designed to elevate “more authoritative content” and marginalize “blatantly misleading, low quality, offensive or downright false information.” It soon became apparent, however, that in the name of combating “fake news,” Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are censoring left-wing, progressive and anti-war sites. The 150 most popular search terms that brought readers to the World Socialist Web Site, including “socialism,” “Russian Revolution” and “inequality,” today elicit little or no traffic.

Remember: The foundation-funded “left” also censors content, such as legitimate facts about the 9/11 attacks and the Treason at the heart of it. It’s kind of difficult to be sympathetic to Truthdig’s readership problems when they have been censoring 9/11 activists such as myself since the beginning. Further, they are too cowardly to debate their ignorant positions. That’s why this blog exists, btw.

A Series by Joe Giambrone

Some may be following my ongoing challenge to Professor Noam Chomsky and his clearly misleading spin regarding the September 11th controversy. Or perhaps not, since none of the outlets which publish his every utterance, like clockwork, will dare publish criticism of the deified thought leader. No rebuttals may appear. My previous pieces established how Chomsky transforms matters of vital public interest, crimes, facts, glaring cover-ups of Congressional reports, into matters of his own personal opinion, which he dismisses and disregards to set an example for others.

My challenge is as much with the deception from Left so-called “alternative” media as it is with Chomsky personally. The demonstrable bias and deliberate misleading of readers (see below) motivates my pieces, such as this one. Many readers, whom I come across, are clearly misled, deluded, and yet proudly ignorant for some odd reason. More on that later, too.

How can an editor look himself in the mirror after being shown to be a serial liar? And a liar not on some trivial gibberish—this isn’t Kardashians—but on the “new American Century,” mass murder, and wars into the foreseeable future?

Media censorship has aided and abetted the perpetrators of the September 11th attacks after the fact. The solution to that editorial guilt is simple self-deception. Censor out the problem (evidence, logic), and so there is no problem; voilà.

Noam Chomsky helps to manufacture conformity. The Professor’s great expertise in media itself is problematic, as so-called “alternative” media looked to him personally for marching orders. It thus empowered Professor Chomsky to define the limits of permissible discourse post-September 11th of 2001.

Chomsky participates in the same Manufactured Consent he once seemed to oppose. The Left foundation-funded press is a different beast than corporate news media, which he and Edward S. Herman wrote about, but its uniformity and its unwillingness to correct itself when shown to be demonstrably wrong is dangerous and a massive institutional failure. The disinformation put out regularly by the Left “alternative” media brings real-world catastrophic implications. War propaganda, in its myriad forms, entails consequences.

Early in the 2000s, Noam Chomsky told the world to ignore the September 11th cover-up.

Result: The entire American Left turned off its critical faculties and let Deep State domestic terrorists get away with their “new Pearl Harbor” and their “Project for a New American Century.” Public opposition to them died out. We became a bi-partisan, unrestrained empire that wages unlimited war around the world with impunity. This is sold to the public every day in the name of “defense.” Never forget 9/11, and the bombing can commence on the next target.

The military injustice system continues its unbroken record of politically motivated show trials with officially-decreed results guaranteed.

 

“FORT MEADE, Md. — The military trial of Bradley Manning is a judicial lynching. The government has effectively muzzled the defense team. The Army private first class is not permitted to argue that he had a moral and legal obligation under international law to make public the war crimes he uncovered. The documents that detail the crimes, torture and killing Manning revealed, because they are classified, have been barred from discussion in court, effectively removing the fundamental issue of war crimes from the trial.

Manning is forbidden by the court to challenge the government’s unverified assertion that he harmed national security…” (more)

 

Sounds a lot like the case of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose Society:

So which side of history is Obama’s government on?
