terrorism is a republican’s best friend August 16, 2006Posted by Brad Richert in politics.
I would have posted this yesterday when I found it, but googlevideo and youtube continue to pull it from their sites whenever someone posts a new one. If my video above is not playing they have censored it again, but no fear, prisonplanet.com has the video here.
MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann gives his top 10 list of examples of how “terror” alerts follow political hardships for the reigning administration. He points out that just because “event A” happens does not mean that “event B” happens, but nor does it exclude the possibility of the connection. What Oibermann does not point out that Paul Watson does is that the evidence for each major terrorist threat dissipates and that the government and their agencies do not concern themselves with being apologetic about repeatedly raising false alarms. This sort of reporting may be old news to opponents of the Bush administration, but it is always a pleasure to see more mainstream media taking a more critical analysis of the events that we are normally spoonfed. Personally, the more news I watch, the less I believe. When asked about this latest “terrorist” threat that has nearly erased any of my freedoms for air travel, I simply shrug my shoulders and say, “well, I guess I will be driving from now on”. Thanks FAA and Transport Canada for everything.
Every increase in “our security” is a reduction of our freedom. When will you feel secure?
