Controlling the News April 1, 2004
It seems that we have reached the watershed. This relates to the relationship between us (our organization in specific) and the Administration (that is the White House). Serious questions about the stolen election (obvious fraud) but a general agreement to try to live with the situation. 9-11 and a strong, unqualified support of the President. He made a strong case for being a serious leader and we all followed him. No contrast between Bush and Guililani at all although it was a farce if you think about it.
Then the Iraq business. Some questions: Is this really necessary? Is Daddy behind this? No, we did not question our Protector and so we went to war but voices were warning us. We did not listen and gave him all the coverage he wanted. Another brief and successful Gulf War. All Power to the Wartime President! Then the doubts. Stories about “substance abuse” and worse stories about who knew what and when about 9-11. Emergence of the fact that there were no WMDs and finally, that Bush lied about everything all the time and was really a very stupid person. At least a thousand dead (but not admitted) and over ten thousand badly wounded (but never talked about.)
Questions about his fanatical religious beliefs; questions about the Israel-supporting neo cons. Questions about the real control exercised by Cheney (who makes a good appearance but is as crazy as a loon) and on and on. A war we cannot ever win; mounting casualties; increasing resistance at home; ugly revelations of moronic and ideological incompetence at the highest level. The gross and very dangerous incompetency of the President now becoming more and more revealed. The frenzy on the part of Rove and other nuts to stay in office. Obvious attempts to establish a theocracy (“faith based ideals”) in America and to establish a religious police state backed by a rabble of raving nuts from the Religious Right. Bush has so fucked up the economy that even if some intelligent person with complete control tried to straighten it out this very moment, it would take years.
Stories that Bush is loading us up with so much internal debt that all the welfare programs like Social Security, SSI and others will have to be scrapped for lack of money. The Bush Administration wants, no, demands, that we support them. We cannot. He will fall and we must not fall with him. He wants to replace the Constitution with the Ten Commandments! In the end, we will be rid of him and all of his people but the damage they have done will take years to repair. Bush wants to put Christ in the White House and he will only turn the public against his Pentecostal friends who now control the Republican Party. The economy is totally fucked and the only thing the media can do is to report on it. The average American is so goddam stupid that many of them believe even the crudest of official lies so we wonder if anyone out there is actually reading, and watching, any kind of objective news. It’s not God Bless America these days but God Save America!
