With fraudulent politicians and mainstream media not about to ‘let this crisis go to waste‘, they’re betting America’s short-term memory will permit them to freely shape a false reality. The question is, how many will succumb to the brainwashing disguised as ‘news’?
(Washington Examiner) On November 5, 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at a troop readiness center in Ft. Hood, Texas, killing 13 people. Within hours of the killings, the world knew that Hasan reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before he began shooting, visited websites associated with Islamist violence, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces his enemy, opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam, and told a neighbor shortly before the shootings that he was going “to do good work for God.” There was ample evidence, in other words, that the Ft. Hood attack was an act of Islamist violence.
Nevertheless, public officials, journalists, and commentators were quick to caution that the public should not “jump to conclusions” about Hasan’s motive. CNN, in particular, became a forum for repeated warnings that the subject should be discussed with particular care.
“The important thing is for everyone not to jump to conclusions,” said retired Gen. Wesley Clark on CNN the night of the shootings.
“We cannot jump to conclusions,” said CNN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell that same evening. “We have to make sure that we do not jump to any conclusions whatsoever.”
“I’m on Pentagon chat room,” said former CIA operative Robert Baer on CNN, also the night of the shooting. “Right now, there’s messages going back and forth, saying do not jump to the conclusion this had anything to do with Islam.”
The next day, President Obama underscored the rapidly-forming conventional wisdom when he told the country, “I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.” In the days that followed, CNN jouralists and guests repeatedly echoed the president’s remarks.
Mind you, Barack Hussein Obama is the same president that said, ‘If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun‘ when discussing Republicans.
And since those that thrive in cesspools of corruption are orchestrating their minions to point crosshairs at gun owners and Sarah Palin because her campaign staff used targets on a map of the United States, ultimately causing liberal lunatic Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Gabrieele Giffords and kill others, let’s sight-in on just a few mainstream media headlines referencing crosshairs and whatnot:
