NON, JE NE SUIS PAS CHARLIE. Charlie Hebdo publie des connerie racistes

Might a satirist consider exercising SOME discretion in one's pursuit of Freedom of Speech? AS IF that is Charlie Hebdo's lofty ideal. Heralded as court jesters, I would submit they are weapons of cultural imperialism, the point men propagandists in a very real, genocidal war. Playing along with the corporate spin that the Paris gunmen simply had no sense of humor, I can hardly imagine that American Taliban, many of our armed soldiers among them, would stomach similar desecrations of their Lord Jesus. One has merely to Google "Charlie Hebdo" to see the paper's unrelentingly racist attacks on Islam. I do not condone executing their cartoonists, but I'm not about to stand in solidarity with their foolishness and bigotry, or their condescending secular ridicule in promotion of Western fascism.

ARGO is a near deftly crafted thriller, jingoist agitprop, full-on Islamophobic mockumentary

This movie is rated AYFKM-- Film critics are unanimous in their praise of ARGO, Ben Affleck's retelling of an Iran Hostage Crisis era escape caper. Either these reviews also reflect media agencies uniformly shrugging off Argo's obvious anti-Iranian jingoism or these authors are inured to crude Islamophobic propaganda. Whatever the film's highly praised period piece accuracies, the Angry Arab and bearded terrorist stereotype are pure post-9/11 refinements. The ill-fitting eyeglass frames, face-obstructing Prell hair, and presumed fitness-less sloop-shouldered physiques pretend to lampoon everyone of that era, but the character assassination is precision targeted at Iranians, all of them. "Mockumentary" is meant to describe a mock documentary. Argo is not a documentary, although it asserts to be historical, but most assuredly it mocks. Borat couldn't have made this film more offensive. If the Muslim world wasn't in an uproar about a fictional Hollywood video disparaging to Islam, Argo would do it. What a mockery to pretend that real Zionist movie moguls aren't laughing about a story that depicts Jewish movie industryists pranking Iran with a fake production they called Ar-Go Fuck Yourself. Let's dispel right away the pretense of historical accuracy. The painstaking period details, and mimicked video footage is meant to lend a scent of authenticity to a CIA personnel expatriation that did happen, but much of the villain-at-their-heels tension was fabricated. Poetic license might excuse drama, were it not for the added perk of vilifying, parodying and humiliating a people. I counted no insult spared. Angry Arabs (the Persians aren't Arab -- do they filmmakers know or care?) never attenuating their cacophonous accusatory gibberish. Death squads circulating house to house, Muslim-garbed women hypocritically enjoying Western fast food, every dark face a humorless compassionless fanatic, their soldiers hirsute menacing mongrels who do everything by force. I'm off to research Argo's fabrications which so flavor the Iran-bashing. For the time being I can surmise two. The film assert that the White House pulled the operation at the last minute, prompting ballsy improvisation when our hero agent went rogue. Later he was awarded the CIA' highest honor. How likely was it that they gave a medal to an agent who really defied every link of his chain of command? Unless he didn't. And second, the movie plot has Iran's Revolutionary Guards so hot on their heels that the guards shoot their way through airport doors and mount pickup trucks to brandish guns as they chase a departing jumbo jet along the runway, providing Argo that Black Hawk Down, post-apocalypse Iraq, Libyan rebel stereotype sent up so well in Team America. The tarmac scene is witnessed only by the movie audience and the CIA extraction specialist as he looks out the airplane window. None of his charges sees it because they are of course real people who could do interviews and swiftly confirm the exaggeration.

9/11 of course. What did you expect?

Thanks to Friend Tony for pointing out that people who don't believe the Official Story of 9/11 is actually valid, are so stupid that we don't merit being read, listened to or answered. This makes somewhere around a hundred times he's made this comment, after listening to or reading them. I guess it should be pointed out AGAIN some of the many reasons why the Official Story needs some serious questioning. One is the cult like nature of the Resistance Movement Against Questioning The Official High Priests Of 9/11. Such as the Congressionally appointed commission which was stacked top to bottom with people who reaped enormous profit from touting the official story. War Contractors top the list. Political Hacks whose only chance to survive is by groveling to the War Contractors and taking the bribes offered by said Daddy Warbucks types. Hacks like Bush, and Palin, and Daddy Warbucks types who are ALSO Political Hacks. Cheney, North, Rupert Murdoch and his cast and crew of Paid Professional Liars, which now includes Sarah Palin. Then there are people who have only one purpose, one drive to continue life... Hatred. People like Pamela Geller. There's some crossover with the War Contractors and Political Hacks on that score as well, Michelle Malkin leaps to mind. The biggest thing about any and all of these people who either demand that we not question Their Sacred 9/11 Gospel of Hate, lest they brand us as Non-Americans. Which, you know, when enough of the Anti-American Terrorists like the re-branded Ku Klux Klowns of the Tea Party catch somebody whom they've declared to be "Not a REAL American" out alone and helpless, extra heavy on the helpless, they can get really vicious. Killing Vicious. Alternated with mocking anybody who questions them or points out their dangerous behavior problems, like Murder, Arson, Aggravated Assault... those type of things, must be "stupid" or "Crazy" or some other version of "not able to think rationally nor intelligently". And all this from people who either consistently Lie about just anything they open their cake-holes to spew, deliberately and with full knowledge that they're lying, or the Disciples of their 9/11 Official Story Cult, apparently some of them unable to tell that the most blatant lies are in fact lies,... but most of them too Morally Chickenshit, lacking the courage to face those Lies and call them Lies. The proponents of the 9/11 Official Gospel also told us that there were Training Camps in Afghanistan, camps which, after almost 9 years of continuous occupation by United States and allied armies, have never actually been found. The million pounds of Nerve Gas supposedly in Iraq. Supposedly moved around an urban population center, Baghdad, by underpaid, underfed, undereducated, undertrained and badly demoralized Teenage Conscripts who had no training in handling Nerve gas, often only a half-hour ahead of U.N. Weapons Inspectors... without one single accident. The United States, which has more stockpiled Nuclear, Biological and Chemical weapons than the rest of the world combined, stores "our" Nerve Gas in climate
