CNN, formerly under the control of the Army’s Fourth Psychological Operations Group, has jumped on the shooting in Las Vegas to kick start the rightwing extremist meme. The narrative has languished since the Department of Homeland Security backed off characterizing Americans who disagree with the establishment as domestic terrorists.
“The attack in Vegas is far from the only incident of violence by the American far right,” writes Peter Bergen, billed as CNN’s national security analyst. “According to data collected by the New America Foundation, right-wing extremists have killed 37 people in 16 violent incidents, in the United States since the 9/11 attacks. That number is more than the 21 people killed by militants motivated by al-Qaeda’s ideology in the United States in the post-9/11 era.”
Before unpacking this biased statement, we should note that the New American Foundation is a globalist think tank lorded over by Eric Schmidt of Google and funded by George Soros and the State Department.
In addition, the CIA’s Ford Foundation, Citigroup, Carnegie, USAID, Time-Warner and a potpourri of globalist foundations support the organization. Its board of directors features the neocon Francis Fukuyama and the anti-Constitution globalist Fareed Zakaria.
First and foremost, CNN, in no uncertain terms, insists “rightwing extremism” is a threat more lethal than al-Qaeda, the foreign terror group created by the CIA and Pakistani intelligence and currently thriving thanks to Saudi Arabia and Qatar.SPLC: Liberty movement “rhetoric” leads to murder of police officers.
Bergen does not provide a source for this claim, although, further along in his op-ed points to the usual suspect, the Southern Poverty Law Center. Following the SPLC narrative, he cites the shooting at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and one at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin as examples of “rightwing” violence.
Bergen parades a melange of psychos – Frazier Glenn Cross, Wade Michael Page, Scott Roeder and three demented gunmen from the so-called Minutemen American Defense – as primary examples of the sort of ideologically-driven violence that portends a more serious threat to America than Osama bin Laden and his trained (by the U.S. military) alleged hijackers.
According to Bergen and his globalist handlers at the New American Foundation, the corporate media mistakenly concentrates on jihadist violence while downplaying violence committed by individuals who are portrayed as rightwing extremists.
“Despite the history of deadly violence by individuals motivated by political ideologies other than that of al Qaeda, it is jihadist violence that continues to dominate the news and the attention of policy makers. Some of this is quite understandable,” he writes and then references 9/11, the event conclusively blamed by the state on al-Qaeda, the terror group named after a database, despite a yawning lack of conclusive evidence.
A “disparity” of establishment news coverage based on the ideological agenda of the SPLC and its partner, the Department of Homeland Security, has undermined the federal stool pigeon program, “see something, say something,” according to Bergen and Las Vegas Sheriff Kevin McMahill.
“Moreover, killings like the ones of the two police officers in Las Vegas on Sunday demonstrate the need to move beyond the view that the only threat of terrorism or extremist violence comes from radicalized Muslims,” writes Bergen.
In fact, non-ideological violence – murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, etc. – poses a more serious threat to society than “rightwing extremism,” but delving into its root cause does not serve the ideological agenda of the New American Foundation, George Soros, the Ford Foundation, Citibank, et al.
Jerad Miller and his poor, unfortunate brainwashed young wife, despite their murderous rampage, are hardly reason enough to call for a recommencement of a Justice Department task force on domestic terrorism, a task force “focused on anti-government plots and racial violence.” The conflation of “anti-government” and “racial,” of course, is not coincidental – it is the cardinal tenet of the Obama administration and serves to discredit and demonize all who criticize the establishment.
Eric Holder’s refurbished investigation into “rightwing extremism,” as exemplified by the politics of Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin (according to a Missouri Information Analysis Center report compiled with the assistance of the DHS), will focus on the liberty movement and strive to connect it to white supremacy.Bergen: Rightwingers kill people.
The momentary victory realized at the Bundy ranch in Nevada – heavily armed BLM agents backing down, wary of another Waco PR disaster – will not be allowed to stand unchallenged. The establishment will soon redouble its effort to neutralize any effective political opposition. An integral part of this effort is a concerted propaganda campaign designed to demonize and criminalize opponents. That’s where Peter Bergen and the New America Foundation propaganda machine come into play.
