John Kirby has no tears and no red lines for Gaza
As the death toll continues to rise, Kirby assures the country that Israel can kill as many Palestinians as it likes
Last week, we saw National Security Council Communications Director John Kirby showcase his (awful) thespian skills with bogus tears for dead Israelis. Today, with Israel’s bombings of hospitals and refugee camps bringing the Palestinian death toll over 10,000, Kirby has a different message: the US draws no red lines for Israel. They’ve got free rein to kill as many people as they see fit.
And speaking of security-state puppets, CNN’s Jake Tapper, doing his part in the genocidal propaganda machine, has a question for you: What else is Israel supposed to do?
“They hear the calls for a ceasefire,” he drones at his viewers. “And they see no parades for the return of the hostages.” So they have no other choice but to bomb the buildings that the hostages are in.
With all this infuriating, oppressive talk drenching the entire corporate media landscape, who better to tell these propagandists where to shove it than Useful Idiots-favorite Norman Finkelstein.
In a debate hosted by Rick Sanchez on RT (Morty’s show comes on right after), Norm takes on Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, who uses the same argument Hitler did that if no one wants these refugees, they must really be animals. And when Norm calls out the fascist Malzberg’s “stupid smirk,” we’re fist-pumping right behind him.
There’s a lot of propaganda this week. Watch with Katie and Aaron so you can hopefully laugh at it instead of cry. It’s our Thursday bonus episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
