Erin Burnett: Out Front Fascist
Erin Burnett: Out Front Fascist

Ten years ago, most Americans believed Saddam Hussein had WMDs.  Today, most Americans believe Iran has nuclear weapons.  And once again, Big Lie propagandists like Erin Burnett are (mis)leading us into war.

ONE PERCENTER ERIN BURNETT: OUTFRONT CORPORATE FASCIST AND IRAN WAR DRUMBEATER

Various versions have been circulating for weeks, but if there's anyone left in America who hasn't seen the video of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Persian posse strolling around in those white lab coats that our perpetual war profiteers want us to believe are clear indications of their diabolical nuclear capabilities, they can view it here:

Note that CNN uploaded this video to YouTube on February 15th with the white-on-red "LIVE" text overlay intact.  It wasn't "live" then, it wasn't "live" any of the other countless times they've aired it since then, and it wasn't "live" on March 2nd when la femme fasciste Erin Burnett had it looping in background as she beat her incessant Iran War drum on the Friday evening edition of "OutFront".   

In his recent posting entitled "Insinuation as War Propaganda," Anthony Gregory noted that in 2003 the massive media propaganda buildup leading to Bush Iraq War II had 70% of Americans believing Saddam Hussein - that "evil dictator" we once armed but ultimately executed without ever finding the arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) our talking heads guaranteed were about to rain down upon us - was personally behind 9/11.  He then observed that today, barely nine years later, 71% of those same gullible boob tube couch potatoes now believe that Iran has nuclear weapons:

And they believe that despite the fact that in a January 2012 interview on "Face the Nation" former CIA Director and now Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta clearly stated that Iran has no nuclear weapons and no intentions of developing any:

And why do they believe that?  Because the global corporate fascist elite that controls our government - and since Citizens United our elections - also controls the military industrial complex and mainstream media.  Through the propagation and perpetuation of war, they generate profits by using the one to feed the other.  But to make war they must first "manufacture consent," because the money-making war machines of the 1 percent cannot operate without the willing cooperation and support of the other 99.  And of the many modern-day Goebbels "Big Lie" propagandists paid to sell their false flag ops and other fictions to the frequently fooled, few are more "out front" about it than CNN's Erin Burnett.  As Glenn Greenwald observed:

"I just could not let go unnoted this commentary on The Iranian Threat by CNN's Erin Burnett ("frightening," she observed).  I barely know what to say about it - the critiques of media fear-mongering I wrote the last two days apply in spades to this - but it really just mocks itself.  It's the sort of thing you would produce if you set out to create a mean-spirited parody of mindless, war-hungry, fear-mongering media stars, but you wouldn't dare go this far because you’d want the parody to have a feel of realism to it, and this would be way too extreme to be believable.  She really hauled it all out:  WMDs! Terrorist sleeper cells in the U.S. controlled by Tehran! Iran's long-range nuclear missiles reaching our homeland!!!! She almost made the anti-Muslim war-mongering fanatic she brought on to interview, Rep. Peter King, appear sober and reasonable by comparison."

Obviously Erin Burnett is not an objective journalist, just as some say much of what CNN reports is not objective news.  Erin Burnett is an alum of Citigroup, one of America's four largest banks, and a major beneficiary of the taxpayer-funded TARP "Too Big To Fail" Bailout.  Erin Burnett is also an alum of Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street giant whose corrupt practices are considered a key causative factor in the global financial meltdown of 2008, and who willingly and easily paid $500 million to settle SEC charges of defrauding investors with their subprime mortgage scams.  And Erin Burnett is a current member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), considered by many to be America's more powerful foreign policy think-tank, and denounced by some as a proponent of "one world government" and instrument of the "new world order."

Erin Burnett is a One Percenter.  Should we be surprised that delivering their message is her mission?

REGARDING REDDIT

Reddit r/Politics exists to perpetuate America's Demopublican two-puppet political system:  What you see posted on Reddit r/Politics is NOT what was SUBMITTED but what was APPROVED by their censorship system.  And what Reddit calls "Karma" is actually a measure of - and psyop pressure for - groupthink conformity:
