Early 2013 Chris Hedges refers to New Yorker contributor George Packer as one of many intellectual “war boosters” and “liberal hawks” who “did what they always have done: engage in self preservation” in the lead-up to the Iraq War.
Hedges’ wrote this days after Packer’s negative review of Hedges’ new book at the time, “The Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt,” in the Sunday Book Review in The New York Times.
Rewriting history by powerful elitists as America marked the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War with some claiming they had opposed the war when they had not. + “Bush’s useful idiots” + Hillary Clinton argued that acted in good faith on the BAD Information but would do it differently now which is just another LIE + The “liberal hawks” = Could also included Hillary Clinton again + Chuck Schumer + Al Franken + John Kerry + Academics/Writers/Journalists = Bill Keller + Michael Ignatieff + Nicholas Kristof + David Remnick + Fareed Zakaria + Michael Walzer + Paul Berman + Thomas Friedman + George Packer + Anne-Marie Slaughter + Kanan Makiya + the late Christopher Hitchens = Engage in acts of self-preservation saying opposing the war would have been a career killer = WEAK APPOLOGISTS AND CHEERLEADERS FOR WAR + Attempted to discredit anyone who questioned the call to invade Iraq.
In NYT Kristof attacked filmmaker Michael Moore as a conspiracy theorist and wrote that anti-war voices were only polarizing what he termed “the political cesspool.”
Hitchens said that those who opposed the attack on Iraq “do not think that Saddam Hussein is a bad guy at all.” And Hitchens called anti-war protester a “blithering ex-flower child or ranting neo-Stalinist.”
FAKE LEFT OF ROTHSCHILD ZIONIST CORPORATE MEDIA = A decade later fail to mention the most pernicious and fundamental role they played in the buildup to the war—shutting down public debate and attacking those of us who spoke out against the war along with the attacks of WAR-MONGERING right-wing “patriots”.
They attacked all TRUE ANTI-WAR JOURNALISTS and “In my case it did not matter that I was an Arabic speaker….(and) spent seven years in the Middle East, including months in Iraq, as a foreign correspondent. It did not matter that I knew the instrument of war.”
THE FAKED ROTHSCHILD LEFT did not care “how well grounded in fact and experience” our anti-War arguments were. The FAKED LIBERAL LEFT ELITISTS attacked us and turned us into objects of scorn to cravenly demonstrate their own “patriotism” for national security with a rabid, irrational hatred of all war critics. Many of us received death threats and lost our jobs, for me one at The New York Times. These ROTHSCHILDS FAKED LIBERAL WARMONGERS, 10 years later, remain both clueless about their moral bankruptcy and cloyingly sanctimonious. They have the blood of hundreds of thousands (or MILLIONS) of innocents on their hands.
THE ROTHSCHILDS EMPOWERED FAKE LIBERAL ELITISTS have always been willing to sacrifice integrity and truth for power, personal advancement, foundation grants, awards, tenured professorships, columns, book contracts, television appearances, generous lecture fees and social status. They know what they need to say to MEET ROTHSCHILDS’ DEMANDS FOR EXTRAVAGANTLY PROFITABLE FAKED WARS = IT IS AN EASY ideology to KNOW, PAROT, AND LIE ABOUT AS IT IS THE SAME STORY THST HAS EXISTED SINCE THE ROTHSCHILDS SUPPORTED IN THE 1700s the NAPOLEANIC Wars. THEY PERFECTLY WELL KNOW THE “what lies must be told—the biggest being that they take moral stances on issues that aren’t safe and anodyne. They have been at this game a long time. And they will, should their careers require it, happily sell us out again.”
Leslie Gelb, in magazine Foreign Affairs, spelled it out after the invasion of Iraq. = “My initial support for the war was symptomatic of unfortunate tendencies within the foreign policy community, namely the disposition and incentives to support wars to retain political and professional credibility. We ‘experts’ have a lot to fix about ourselves, even as we ‘perfect’ the media. We must redouble our commitment to independent thought, and embrace, rather than cast aside, opinions and facts that blow the common—often wrong—wisdom apart. Our democracy requires nothing less.” = SUCH DISGUSTING BACKSLIDING TO COVER FAILURES!
ROTHSCHILDS ZIONIST CORPORATE MEDIA PRODUCES MORAL COWARDS OUT OF THE FAKE LIBERAL MEDIA TO SUPPORT ROTHSCHILDS’ WARS.
THESE ROTHSCHILDS PAWNS REFERRED TO AS POWER ELITISTS ARE ” especially evident when it comes to the plight of the Palestinians. The liberal class, in fact, is used to marginalize and discredit those, such as Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein, who have the honesty, integrity and courage to denounce Israeli war crimes. And the liberal class is compensated for its dirty role in squelching debate.”
