Skullhunter, Psychological Mechanic

This is amazing. This latest crop has to be the most mind-numbingly stupid bunch of freepers I've ever encountered. This is stupid on a level human science can't even quantify. I'm still trying to figure out how the hell they can manage to operate a computer without electrocuting themselves, burning their houses down, or knocking out power in their entire neighborhood. I mean, I know there's no IQ minimum to be a freeper, but shouldn't there at least be enough brain activity to support more than just autonomic nervous system functions?

Skullhunter: it's not stupidity 29.Aug.2002 03:57


It's willful ignorance. Anyone with the slightest grasp of reality knows better, but these people insist on repeating this garbage until they, and whatever weak minds around them, accept it as truth. It's a very simple and not all that effective form of propaganda. These are the tactics they're resorting to. The fact that they are stooping so low means many things, all positive for those who seek progressive change and an end to involuntary suffering.

Regrets I won't be in the Atlanta area early October.

The Men from JINSA and CSP (from The Nation) 29.Aug.2002 03:58

Adam F. Smith

A absolute must read on the subject of AIPAC and far-right connections in the US and Israel is The Nation 9/2/02 issue article "The Men From JINSA and CSP" by Jason Vest...

"Almost thirty years ago, a prominent group of neoconservative hawks found an effective vehicle for advocating their views via the Committee on the Present Danger, a group that fervently believed the United States was a hair away from being militarily surpassed by the Soviet Union, and whose raison d'Ítre was strident advocacy of bigger military budgets, near-fanatical opposition to any form of arms control and zealous championing of a Likudnik Israel. Considered a marginal group in its nascent days during the Carter Administration, with the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 CPD went from the margins to the center of power.

Just as the right-wing defense intellectuals made CPD a cornerstone of a shadow defense establishment during the Carter Administration, so, too, did the right during the Clinton years, in part through two organizations: the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) and the Center for Security Policy (CSP). And just as was the case two decades ago, dozens of their members have ascended to powerful government posts, where their advocacy in support of the same agenda continues, abetted by the out-of-government adjuncts from which they came. Industrious and persistent, they've managed to weave a number of issues--support for national missile defense, opposition to arms control treaties, championing of wasteful weapons systems, arms aid to Turkey and American unilateralism in general--into a hard line, with support for the Israeli right at its core.

On no issue is the JINSA/CSP hard line more evident than in its relentless campaign for war--not just with Iraq, but "total war," as Michael Ledeen, one of the most influential JINSAns in Washington, put it last year. For this crew, "regime change" by any means necessary in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority is an urgent imperative. Anyone who dissents--be it Colin Powell's State Department, the CIA or career military officers--is committing heresy against articles of faith that effectively hold there is no difference between US and Israeli national security interests, and that the only way to assure continued safety and prosperity for both countries is through hegemony in the Middle East--a hegemony achieved with the traditional cold war recipe of feints, force, clientism and covert action....(4 pages more)"
