Morgan Freeman -The Voice Of NeoMcCarthyism For Neoliberals

Yes even Morgan Freeman and Rob Reiner and other supposedly Hollywood Liberals are now pushing for the New Improved updated version of The House Committee on Unamerican Activities of Joseph McCarthy. They want to investigate any American who was critical of the DNC or Hillary Clinton or who believe the Democrats and Hillary Clinton rigged the 2015-2016 primary to insure that Hillary won.
They believe that the smearing of Bernie Sanders and his supporters by Hillary Clinton's team and by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others such as Peter Daou , David Brooks, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi . Donna Brazile, Joy Reid, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Maher , Rachel Maddow , Chris Hayes , Chris Matthews, Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer , Gloria Steinem, Madame AlBright et al was justified and just part of their campaign strategy. But the dirty tricks and smearing of Bernie and his supporters was unfair  and unethical to say the least and the DNC still refues to apologize for Rigging the Primary.
They at least could have had the decency to tell Bernie and his supporters not to bother with a campaign since the elite within the DNC had already picked Hillary to be the Presidential Candidate.
But as usual its seems Americans either don't believe in an open democracy or just don't care and prefer Dirty Politics ala President Nixon to having a fair and open process.
So now they want to blame Russia and those Americans they believe colluded with the Russians to defeat SAINT HILLARY . So these NeoMcCarthyite Neoliberals are going full tilt NeoFascist and  are demanding investigations  and jailing all those who criticized Hillary or the DNC and Democratic Party. If the numbers of these dissidents is large enough is Rob Reiner and Morgan Freeman comfortable with the creation of Prison camps or re-education camps or just Concentration camps .
Joseph McCarthy , Roy Cohn, Nixon ,  Spiro Agnew , Reagan , William F. Buckley Jr., Ayn Rand , Henry Kissinger , the John Birchers would all be delighted.



September 30, 2017 "Information Clearing House" -  Morgan Freeman is used to playing God, and in lesser roles, president of the United States. These days, however, Freeman has sold his image and aura to the worst warmongers on the planet. Morgan Freeman has signed on as a front man and propagandist for an all-out military confrontation with Russia, the only country that has the power to turn the United States into a burned out cinder. In a video that Freeman’s right-wing friends are circulating on social media, the actor declares that a new world war has already begun.
Russia is waging war on the U.S. ,” says the text of a video, produced by the so-called Committee to Investigate Russia. Morgan Freeman then intones, “We have been attacked. We are at war.” He spins an infantile 1950s-type demonization of Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, for supposedly using “cyber warfare to attack democracies around the world.” At this point, we discover that the man who plays God on film is, in real life, just an old time, shuffling Uncle Tom, the kind of shameless bootlicker that we hoped had gone extinct. Morgan Freeman says of the United States, “for 241 years our democracy has been a shining example to the world.” Freeman’s slave ancestors must be cursing his name from the grave.

A sudden, early grave awaits us all, if Morgan Freeman’s script-writers have their way. The least dangerous member of the board of the Committee to Investigate Russia is Rob Reiner, the actor and director who used to play the “meathead” on TV’s “All in the Family.” His political family is Zionism. Reiner wants to “eliminate” Hamas , the Palestinian political organization, and charges that Donald Trump’s rich Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner , has “turned his back on his religion.” But Reiner is just the media connection, like Morgan Freeman, himself

The ideology of the Committee to Investigate Russia comes straight from the CIA, the Council on Foreign Relations, which has vetted every U.S. war since World War Two, and the Pentagon. Former CIA director James Clapper, who lied to the entire world when he told Congress that the government was not spying on the telephones and personal computers of everyone on the planet, sits on the board. He got away with perjury, and now he’s writing Morgan Freeman’s lying script. Max Boot is a rightwing historian with the Council on Foreign Relations who wants to “beef up” the U.S. military. Evelyn Farkas is also on the Council, and is a former deputy assistant secretary of defense. Norman Ornstein is a scholar at the Republican-dominated American Enterprise Institute. And Charles Sykes is a rightwing commentator.

This is the political company that Morgan Freeman keeps: Zionists, militarists, spies, and rightwing hate-mongers – the real dangers to world peace. When Freeman says that the U.S. is already “at war,” he is effectively demanding an attack on Russia. Under Nuremberg rules, Morgan and others like him are guilty of crimes against peace – which are capital crimes. Freeman is trying to whip up a war frenzy that can only end in nuclear annihilation. That makes Freeman a danger to the human race. A war whore -- not God-like at all.

Hillary Clinton's Blame Game Versus Glenn Beck's Hatred Of Obama

Updated: September 26, 2017





UPDATED: 4:27 PM & 5:43 PM Jan. 28, 2010




This is an old post from days of yore when Beck was crazy because Obama a Black man became president.





Now we have some high strung Democrats who are upset that Trump is POTUS and they want to blame Russia, Putin, Black and Hispanic citizens and white working class, and Bernie Sanders , and racism as a backlash to 8 years of Obama and sexism that Hillary lost because she's a woman , or that the DNC didn't do enough and the Media they claim was against Hillary - little of this holds water.




Trump is a bit of a disaster but mostly because he is uncouth he says in public what other presidents only say in private to their closest advisers.
Obama was just as much of a war monger who ignored all the civilian deaths he caused because he never really cared anymore than Trump or George Bush or Hillary Clinton , or John Kerry , or Joe Biden or Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney or Karl Rove or Nixon and Henry Kissinger- it is all about power and money .




Hillary Clinton currently is on Blame everbody else Book Tour of her book "What Happened" or possibly "Did I Do That"
Yes Hillary there is NO SANTA CLAUSE and you were not promised that this was YOUR TURN.
If Hillary fought harder and had taken on more progressive policies and picked a better VP such as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. With Sanders as VP she would have been guaranted a few million votes that is from Bernie's 15 Million dedicated enthusiastic supporters. Instead Hillary and the DNC trashed Bernie Supporters in every way possible telling them to bugger off , take a hike and if they don't like the Democratic Party then just get the hell out of the party.
Hopefully voters will still remember this if the Democrats put up more corporate Centrist war Hawks in 2018 or 2020. The party should use this as a teaching and learning moment instead of just doubling down on Neoliberal moderate conservative policies.


- Hillary ran a terrible campaign, the leaked documents were factual but not flattering and showed how corrupt and manipulative the DNC was and is .
Hillary and her friends John Podesta, David Brock, Robbie Mook , Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Peter Daou , et al decided to move further to the right at a time when American voters were in a Populist mood and wanted someone who was outside the establishment.


There were also emails and Documents leaked which showed that the DNC, Hillary and the Media colluded to undermine Bernie Sanders campaign - which in fact added up to cheating Bernie and lying to his supporters and making up crap about him .


Other emails from the Clinton Foundation etc. showed that Hillary used a system of Pay for Play as Secretary of State.V



Hillary was unable to sell herself as someone outside the elites , the establishment or Wall Street while she remained a hawk in foreign affairs while spouting discredited Neoliberal economic and social policies .
Hillary was in favor of more wars. Hillary was against raising the minimum wage to 15 dollars, Hillary was against Universal Health Care.
Hillary was against any consideration of free college education across the board.
Hillary was also in favor of a get tough immigrant stance .
Hillary was still the sweetheart of the Fossil Fuel industry from coal to oil to Mountain Top Removal to Fracking and more pipelines while wanting to easer up on environmental and safety regulations.



And you thought Glenn Beck couldn't get any crazier but he has now gone over the edge into rather dangerous territory as he appears to want like minded conservatives to rise up and take to the streets with their automatic rifles and stat killing all liberals, progressives, and leftists. Glenn Beck hates all of these people who discuss American history in such a way that it undermines the American Mythos ie the City on The Hill , the savior of the world, God's Chosen Nation, Manifest Destiny , the greatest Democracy , a land of equality and equal opportunity .





In Glenn's mind America up until recently was a capitalist paradise where the rich were respected in the way he believes they should be which now includes himself. But his wealth is in great part based upon his selling his Hate Speech & conspiratorial thinking . It never occurs to him that America has ever done anything wrong except when the hated"Liberals" were ruling America. But both parties are in fact responsible for various disastrous domestic and foreign policies. XXX







For instance : It was after all the Democrats under FDR who helped make America into a better nation yet it was the Democrats who were responsible for the disastrous Vietnam war while the Republicans doubled on Vietnam under Nixon and Henry Kissinger.
Meanwhile later on it was the Democrats under Bill Clinton who gutted the welfare programs and public housing while pushing for laws which has led to Mass Incarceration and the militarization of police forces and given them unlimited powers to stop and search people with no real grounds for doing so the grounds seem to be if the person is Black or Brown since Hillary referred to young Black men as Superpredators who needed to be brought to heel as if Black citizens were animals.







Is Glenn Beck inciting violence. By comparing President Obama to Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin , Mao , Pol Pott he is saying that Obama and the leftist are out to destroy traditional America and rounding up and killing all who disagree with their policies. So according to Glenn Beck the left is intending to set up concentration camps and death camps to kill him and all his followers. Is Glenn Beck just doing this for the ratings or is he agitating hoping for some violence or chaos. It is one thing to disagree with the policies of President Obama and progressives and another to claim he is as evil as Hitler or Stalin. So what is his audience supposed to react to his claims-assassinate the president & others connected with the Obama administration or just march and demonstrate in the streets. Is he just playing on the fears and paranoia of those who don't trust Obama because he appears too liberal or because he's black. In their little minds the only way for a black man to be president would be a result of a massive conspiracy.XXX








The Young Turks Critique of Glenn Beck documentary Live Free or Die

XX  Once again we get a revisionists history by a right-wing nutter . To the revisionists historical facts are merely a matter of opinion. Therefore Glenn Beck and others can reimagine the past anyway they care to. Part of the issue is that Hitler and others were mass murdering maniacs whether or not they were perceived as on the left or right. Glenn beck is stuck on the fact that the Nazi party was supposedly a socialist party. Hitler turned the party as such into whatever were his personal goals, ambitions and his own paranoid conspiratorial style. Tim McVeigh ,

So is he saying that the Ku Klux Klan never committed acts of violence or that if they did they must be liberals-but they are right wing racists. So all those people in the South who went to the thousands of lynchings were liberals who were pro-gay, pro-civil rights, and were anti-war or who had a hidden agenda in what they appeared to be doing. Henry Ford whom I have discussed before was a rabid anti-semite and supported Hitler & Mussolini . XXX

  For almost 2,000 years the Christian Church and the early Christians promulgated anti-Semitism-therefore according to Beck the Christians and especially the Catholic Church must have been on the left.Surely according to his way of thinking no Christian was ever anti-semitic. The idea that the Catholic Church and later the Lutherans and protestants were also fanatically anti-Semitic and were racists who believed the White European Race was superior to all other so called races and religions and cultures. Samuel Huntingtons Clash of Civilizations is at its core a racist screed in favor of Christian European White Culture as superior to all others. XXXNo White European Christian could ever commit the crimes committed by the Japanese and the Chinese or Africans and other non Europeans. So were The Crusades, the Inquisition, the Witch hunts, slavery all part of a leftist plot. I guess these so called leftists in Beck's imagination are confused with like the non-existent Illuminati plotting for centuries to kill off millions of conservatives or libertarians. Glenn Beck in part 3 of his documentary talk about the Ukrainian famine which was engineered by Stalin as if it were some dark hidden secret. It became well known in the West .XXX  Yes there were die hard pro-Communists who refuse to believe it had been engineered . It is among the reasons many people eventually left the Communist party in the US Canada and elsewhere. Beck forgets that it was difficult to get any reliable news out of the Soviet Union. There was at times so much propaganda on both sides that it was difficult to discern what was really going on. Later we get to see the same madness unleashed in Red China during the so called cultural revolution and in Cambodia under Pol Pott.XXX

 

Part 3| Glenn Beck Documentary: "The Revolutionary Holocaust: Live Free...Or Die" - 01/22/10

XX

  Beck's conspiracy theory is an old one which can best be illustrated by the notorious infamous forgery created by the Russian Secret police in 1905 to incite anti-semitism . This forgery known as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion has been used by anti-semites ever since as proof they claim of a world wide Jewish conspiracy. So if one wants to create a Conspiracy Theory the Protocols can be used as a basic blueprint-all you do is instead of referring to Jews you change the name of the group to the one you wish to attack ie Illuminati, the Knights of Malta, The Masons , the Catholics, liberals, socialist, Community organizers, civil rights movement , labor unions, Native black Africans etc. XXX  To Glenn Beck and his ilk Martin Luther King Jr. was an evil Communists who got America's black people and the poor all riled up over in his view nothing that important. He seems to believe everything was OK in America til Communist agitators interfered with the Segregation in the South. I have been hearing this nonsense from the US Conservatives , John Bircher Society, and the KKK and William F. Buckley , Jesse Helms, Barry Goldwater,Governor George Wallace & even the Mainstream US Media since the early 1960s up to the present. XXX

 Also note that if Beck is going to talk about Genocides prior to Hitler he should also examine the Armenian Holocaust, the Native American Holocaust, the Irish Potato Famine, the hundred if not thousands of pogroms and massacres of the Jews in Europe by Holier than thou Christians then add in the Crusades, the Inquisition, the expulsion of Jews and Muslims and other non-Christians from Christian countries and add in hundreds of years of Slavery and wars and massacres between various Christian factions. Hitler did not invent anti-Semitism or the notion of Genocide. For instance during the Irish Holocaust the English & their fellow travelers in Ireland conspired to rid the land of people to be replaced by Sheep and more potatoes. Over six million died or went into exile in the 19th century. Americans took in several million during those years which led to an anti-Irish backlash.XXX

 So you have signs that read no Jews , No Niggers, No Dogs and No Irish but Beck doesn't want to talk about how European Capitalist and Christians were involved in this sort of massacre. In Dublin on the piers there are statues commemorating the Irish Famine. People lay starving on the docks while ships were loaded with produce and then sailed away. The US tried to run the Blockade established by the English by sending ships loaded with food for the Irish. The English made the American ships unload in England and then the aid was put on English ships creating long unnecessary delays in the delivering of aid to the Irish people. Glenn Beck also does not want to talk about how the British, the French, the Spanish & Portuguese mass murdered an estimated 40 million or more Native Americans from the Arctic circle down to the tip of South America. They engineered this Genocide so there would be more room for Europeans coming to the Americas. and now for a little levity as it were Is this another Watergate Were these guys working for the Republicans when they wire tapped the phones -dirty tricks ala Nixon Were they being being paid or was the job done with a wink and a nod to true believers. Cenk doesn't mention that these characters were or may have been in cohoots with the Republicans or other right wing conservative organizations or interests. XXX
