Clinton says al Jazeera is "real news"
Christians and Jews in America should be shocked and appalled at Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's comments that the terrorist-supporting, hate spewing propaganda arm for Islam provides better news than the free press in America. This love affair with Islam as portrayed by this White House is beyond pale. And the wave of anti-Judeo Christian sentiment as expressed by government policies and the courts is only the shaft of the spear now that the White House and the Administration have become its tip. The nation is being taken over with Islamic apologists. While Christianity and Judaism are trouble makers and hate mongers, Islam is chic despite its treatment of women, children and its global terrorism.
Clinton told a Congressional Hearing March 2, "You've got a global set of networks that Al Jazeera has been the leader in that are literally changing people's minds and attitudes...In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it's real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you're getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners." That Clinton believes al Jazeera is "real news" and that the American approach to news "is not particularly informative" is a real jab at the First Amendment.
Clinton also noted that China and Russia are able to push their message overseas since they have started English-language networks. Clinton was decrying the ability of these nations to control their message and place their propaganda effectively. In a very subtle way, she was saying that the United States' freedom of the press was no match for the propaganda machines of Islam, China and Russia. And in the way that it was presented, Clinton was saying that the controlled media does a better job than the free press in getting their message across. The second message she was promoting is that the terrorist news network, al Jazeera, is better than America's news networks.
The American media has its problems largely because it has been inundated by leftists who do not know right from wrong and are unable to give a clear picture of the true news. But they are a far cry better than a Sharia law, pro-terrorist Islamic propaganda channel. Clinton's remarks express two themes: that Islamic media is better than American news media and that the First Amendment places the press at a disadvantage to propaganda networks. If ever the government acts on these theories, Islamic persecution of Jews and Christians will be commonplace in this country. Jeremiah 51:14 says, "I will fill thee with men as with locusts and the shall lift up a shout against thee." Are they coming?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
