It’s hard to explain how I felt when my coworker asked if I wanted to watch this video which tells what our “glorious President doesn’t want us to know.” I knew it was going to be some form of propaganda since I’ve seen tons of emails that he receives on a daily basis with information that is obviously biased and from an extremely conservative source.
I felt like telling him at that point that for someone in their mid 40’s in Corporate America he was dumb as shit; but I like him otherwise. He’s just politically ignorant and believes everything that gets forwarded to him from his sources. I chose not to watch the video with him but he forwarded it to me then put his headphones on and watched it on his own. After watching it; he took off the headphones; did a little all knowing “hmph” then walked outside for a smoke with the gait of a juror that had heard all they needed to hear in a case to convict the defendant.
I took exactly 2.5 days to view the info because I wanted to take it all in with an open mind. After viewing it several things are clear.
The people behind the video are clearly bullshit artists. They start with a disclaimer that they are merely investigating and not drawing any conclusions etc. The entire video lacks context and ends with them sensationalizing the events of 9/11 as if to prove a point. At no point is the viewer given pretext; only statements meant to obviously incite and lead the ignorant down a yellow brick road of propaganda. I personally found it sickening.
Below I am posting the entire unedited text of the email followed by the video attached to it. I’m seriously going to grab a drink now. I kid you not.
Subject: FW: Fw: FOX News has blocked the showing of this clip
|Remember when we were told to watch Fox News on a Sunday night that was going to air something about Obama and we watched but never saw anything! Well, read below and click on the video to see why it got pulled before it could air.
Forward to as many and as quickly as you can!
P.S. Try as I might I can’t find anything on Google where the Obama administration blocked Sean Hannity from showing anything.
Thank God It’s Five, TGIFive.
