"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

dear know-nothing nativists

Fox News is shit. When Sean Hannity spends his slot trying to convince you to fear the Muslim Brotherhood as some sort of incipient Islamic force poised to control all of the land of the Nile, it's because a change in Egypt - almost any change not managed by the US - is bad for the Permanent Aircraft Carrier At The End of the Mediterranean,* which is in itself bad for American Hegemony.

And that's what FOX and Sean Hannity serve. American Hegemony. Because it's good for business.

Grow up already, you fucking fucks.

"Fox News is shit".

I knew that before I even watched it.

Had to get it off my chest. That fucking shit hole is hard pimping the "MB Islamism Death of Israel" line. And its captive audience is buying it.

Vile as it is, it's hard to be surprised. I can smell an 'emergency briefing' at the weekend from Mr. Murdoch to his minions.

The whole 'party line' seems to have been rapidly agreed on - from Obama's doubletalk to Fox derangement. Last week western governments and media were left holding their dicks over these events.

Truth, Wayne. And they have coalesced around their collective response with rapidity: Islamism.

Predictable, as you say.

Whenever I hear "Islamism," now, I think "which Israeli or US/UK hegemonist is scared, and about what?"

Granted, the Muslim brotherhood has gotten conspiratorial in Turkey:
