Fear, Inc. 2.0

The Islamophobia Network’s Efforts to Manufacture Hate in America

At its core, the United States is a nation built on a few fundamental values. The values of freedom of religion and basic civil liberties are enshrined in the Bill of Rights and have been upheld time and time again by the U.S. Congress and courts. A basic respect for the rights of minority groups throughout the country—whether these minorities are ethnic, religious, political, geographic, or social—are inherent in the founding principles of the United States. All Americans—progressives and conservatives alike—share these core values that have formed the backbone of an inclusive, multidimensional society for nearly 250 years.

But the journey toward a more perfect union has not always been smooth. During World War II, for instance, Japanese Americans were unjustly interned because they were seen as “others.” In 1960, many opposed the election of President John F. Kennedy because they erroneously believed that his Catholic faith meant that his first loyalty would be to the Pope rather than the Constitution—and that if the two ever came in conflict, he would take orders from the Pope.

More recently, American Muslims in the United States have been targeted, profiled, or seen as suspect because of their faith.

In 2011, the Center for American Progress published “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America” in order to identify and expose the organizations, scholars, pundits, and activists comprising a tightly linked network that spread misinformation and hateful propaganda about American Muslims and Islam. The report found that seven charitable foundations spent $42.6 million between 2001 and 2009 to support the spread of anti-Muslim rhetoric. The efforts of a small cadre of funders and misinformation experts were amplified by an echo chamber of the religious right, conservative media, grassroots organizations, and politicians who sought to introduce a fringe perspective on American Muslims into the public discourse.

In the three years since “Fear, Inc.” shined a light on the Islamophobia network and exposed the network’s key members, a number of them have been marginalized by the mainstream media and politicians. For example, the American Conservative Union publically reprimanded misinformation expert Frank Gaffney and made it clear that he is no longer welcome at their annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Conservative politicians from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) to former presidential candidate Mitt Romney have pushed back against the “sinister accusations” of the Islamophobia network. And the anti-Muslim caucus in Congress took a huge hit by losing some of its loudest members, such as Reps. Allen West (R-FL) and Michele Bachmann (R-MN).

The list of characters belonging to the Islamophobia network are interviewed on radio and TV news programs in part to expedite their Christian religious war. After all, as "W" Bush said, We are fighting a Crusade.

The islamophobia network has $57 million to spend on the Fear campaign.

Beck, dildos, and Christmas in Crazyland

I didn't even read it. Merely the headline said it all: "Glenn Beck: Schools allow kids to play with 'box of dildos,' but not to celebrate Christmas."

We keep rummaging around the bottom of the right's crazy bin, hoping to find and thereby trash the last of its stunningly potent political goofweed. But the right keeps refilling the bin with ever more wickedly mind-blowing shit.

I don't know who the right's supplier is, but Colorado needs to give him a call.

The rise of Fascism in Europe is very concerning for those of us on the Left, but the linking of your Neo-cons and Neo-Nazis here in Europe is very worrying the recent involvement of the Neo-cons in the state Department and right wing NGOs in the affairs of eastern Europe is having an affect.

From the Dish

The Pernicious Poison Of Palin

APR 27 2014 @ 9:37PM

She represents an absurdist nadir in the history of presidential campaigns. But in case you ever doubted just how callous and toxic she can be, I give you the following:

“Well, if I were in charge …. They would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

A Christian who can equate the sacrament of baptism with a barbaric form of torture is not a Christian, whatever self-righteous blather she emits. And a former vice-presidential candidate who talks of “baptizing” Muslim terror suspects through waterboarding is handing al Qaeda a propaganda coup on a platter. She disgusts me. And what disgusts me even more is the rank cowardice of so many sane Republicans who for far too long have failed to take her on.

Tough guys are always found on Sunday shows:

BROOKS: Basically since Yalta we’ve had an assumption that borders are basically going to be borders and once that comes into question if in Ukraine or in Crimea or anywhere else, then all over the world all bets are off. And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East. Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad or somebody like Putin? I think a lot of the rap is unfair but certainly in the Middle East there is an assumption that he’s not tough enough.

I’m basically coming to the conclusion that all Republican men are either closeted homosexuals or very, very bothered about the inadequacies of their own penis.

Tell 'em about the talents againWell here is a big change! Tea Party Unity head man Rick Scarborough is talking about something other than buttsex! This is unusual, because he really likes to talk about buttsex. But instead, he — or rather, his guest on a Tea Party Unity webcast, former California state Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian, talked about Jesus and how the Prince of Peace is opposed to reducing income inequality, because it says so right in the Bible. Kaloogian explained this a bit further:

I think it’s clear that God has a position on many of the things we deem political today, from life to theft to the doctrine of covetousness, which by the way seems to be the promotion of the left. You know, they talk about “income inequality,” well what is that but covetousness? So how could somebody support that cause if they’re biblical believing Christians?

It’s so true! The poors might start coveting $10 an hour, and then where would we be? It’s just like that time when Jesus told the multitude, “Damn you, stop coveting my loaves and fishes! Get out! MINE!” Heaven knows that there’s nothing covetous about simply wanting to pile up more and more wealth for yourself — we just dare you to find Jesus saying a single word about that.

A journalist blinded by bluster

"This will not be known as the Era of Republican Obstruction," declares National Journal's Ron Fournier. The reason? It's Fournier's best yet, for my money. Because President Obama has been right on so many issues.     

You read that right. Whether in fights over the federal budget, nominations, gun control, immigration reform, health care or Syria, and now Ukraine, Obama has been right, his opponents wrong. The result--brace for incoherent impact--is that we now have "A President Blinded by Righteousness."

It's the funniest, most twisted, goddamnedest argument I've encountered in some time--and on the heels of a CPAC convention, that's saying a lot. But Fournier, while irrational, is bold. Being right, Obama "displays tunnel-vision conviction," fumes the indignant Fournier, and thus the president "finds it hard to see why anybody would oppose him, which makes it almost impossible to earn new allies."

And there you have it. Notwithstanding six unbroken years of indisputable Republican hostility to every Obamian proposal and offer of compromise, gridlock, in Fournier's eyes, is no longer a matter of both sides being difficult. "[I]t's on Obama," he says.

Why? Because Obama has been right and his opponents have been wrong. Like I said, it's one helluva argument.

Fair and balanced" -

Americans should learn and read about the Fairness Doctrine. 

(Other links and more importantly books are available).  The 1996 telecommunications act along with the appointment of Michael Powell   resulted in the lack of diverse news available today.

The U.S.P.S. used to deliver news as a service to encourage free press.

I think the appointment of Michael Powell along with the other changes in campaign finance and 'bribery' influenced some of this.

As a follow up now 9 years after General Colin Powells son left the Federal Communications Commission office is our media and press in worse shape, or is there less diversity?

Fair and balanced

Joshua Black, Christian evangelist, taxi driver and Republican candidate for Florida House District 68, said of President Obama: "I'm past impeachment. It's time to arrest and hang him high."

To which Black's Republican neighbor and candidate for House District 67 reacted: "You aren't seriously calling for the killing of Obama are you? I know you are crazy but good heavens. U R an embarrassment."

But it's the Tampa Bay Times' gentlest of understatements that makes this story so charming: "Black's opponent in the House race, Democratic state Rep. Dwight Dudley"--is there a Mrs. Dudley Do-Dwight?--"said Black has the right to disagree with Obama's decisions. But he shouldn't call for Obama's hanging."
