Rob "Meathead" Reiner (fake liberal) defends James "The Liar" Clapper

Another sign the end is near. What a jackass this Reiner is. He's become Archie, only he's too dumb to notice.

For those who have forgotten who James "The Liar" Clapface is:

Why isn't he in jail? If you lied to Congress, that's where you would be.

1. Powerful! Thanks for posting, Aquila.

And there, my friends and foes, you have but one example of how "neoliberal" and "liberal" are not synonyms.

Lying to Congress on national television is now serving the country? (BTW, NSA head, Alexander, did the same before Clapper, also with impunity.)

Years as a bureaucrat (or depending up your POV, part of the Deep State) do not, IMO, qualify as service to the country, a term that ought be reserved for the military. It's called having a government job. (Clapper was a member of the military for years, just not all the years with which Meathead is crediting him with "service to the country.") I don't know what danger Clapper was in or what sacrifices he made while having a well-compensated, powerful, prestigious government job.

Members of government lying to Congress and the American people with impunity has nothing to do with democracy (something that Americans--and most nations--have never had, but so love to dither about meaninglessly). Neither does a law that actually authorizes the US government to bs Americans. (Thanks, Obama.) Meanwhile, we do our damndest to make life hell for whistleblowers.

So much for what Americans want.

2. Thank you!

You might like this article, I linked it at the bottom of the post - here are a few excerpts

Modern “Liberals” Are 1950s Authoritarians

In the hit 1970s sitcom All in the Family, Rob Reiner played Michael Stivic, whose progressive countercultural 1960s sensibilities made him a perfect foil for his bigoted, conservative father-in-law Archie Bunker’s struggles to adapt to a rapidly changing world.

Now a celebrated advocate of the Democratic party, Reiner’s great artistic achievement in 2017 was collaborating with neoconservatives and intelligence community insiders to produce a jarring propaganda video featuring Morgan Freeman warning that “we are at war” with Russia. So far his masterpiece of 2018 is a tweet declaring that if you “libel” Russophobic eugenicist James Clapper and CIA torture facilitator-turned-MSNBC pundit John Brennan you are libeling America....

...Look at the worldview of the average person who identifies as a liberal and you’ll find adoration of psychopathic authoritarian intelligence agencies like the CIA and the FBI, a significantly warmed opinion of George W Bush and the neocons he ushered into power, a total apathy toward the US war machine and Orwellian surveillance network, a seething hatred of all things Russia and a hysterical McCarthyite beef with anyone who fails to fall in line with approved establishment narratives. They have become the very flag-waving, authority-cheerleading, art-killing oppressive zealots that the counterculture of the 1960s burst free from like a drowning man finally getting his head above water and clawing his way onto the shore....

...Endless war in Muslim-majority countries necessitates war propaganda, which will necessarily paint Muslim people as the enemy, which necessarily increases fear of Muslims. More importantly, a causal relationship has been clearly shown between so-called Islamic terrorism and western military interventionism, and a growing body of research indicates that the predominant motivating force driving people to join violent jihadist factions is seeing friends and family killed and arrested by armed forces outside their control....MORE: https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/02/07/modern-liberals-are-1950s-authoritarians/

Sad that most people on this site (and in America it seems) are so tied up in the Red Team vs. Blue Team that they aren't able to see that the US is morally, fiscally and spiritually BANKRUPT. They suffer from the "American Exceptionalism" disease, much like Rome just before the fall. What does the US Lead in anymore? Warfare, surveillance and bickering/outright hatred. While China has become a renewable energy powerhouse.

4. I don't read Johnstone on my own. However, when someone posts a link,

I almost always agree with her.

5. fake liberal bump

If everyone concentrates on fake liberal / fake conservative BS no one will notice the fact that the US is being bled dry by the MIC

$200 Million dollars spent in the next 24 HOURS on chasing a bunch of rebels around sand dunes 8,000 miles away. Nice Work America!
