MSNBC Hit Piece Smears Tea Party As Neo-Nazis

(PaulWatson) – An MSNBC hit piece set to air next week attempts to smear Tea Party activists and average Americans concerned about how the financial crisis is being exploited as neo-nazi Hitler supporters who want to go on killing sprees, highlighting once again the corporate media’s desperation to eviscerate the popularity of anti-establishment political candidates in the run up to the November elections.

“The Rise of the New Right” is an MSNBC special presented by Chris Matthews that will air on June 16 at 7 p.m. ET.

Glenn Beck Supporters, Not 9/11 Truthers, Are Advocating Violence

(PaulWatson) – While Fox News host Glenn Beck propagandizes almost on a daily basis about how 9/11 truthers represent a dangerous extremist fringe who are planning on killing the President, it turns out that the only violence being espoused is coming from Beck’s own viewers. Continue reading

Corporate Corruption Killing America

Anyone smart and strong enough to fight delusional thinking and who pays attention to current events should clearly see that corporate corruption of the US political system is so pervasive and powerful that there will be no genuine reform of both the health care and financial sectors.

Video: Glenn Beck – Disinformation Weasel Boy

For those of you that are veterans in the “Information Wars” you will recall that in 2007 Glenn Beck equated Ron Paul supporters with terrorists and people “like Timothy McVeigh” : Continue reading
