MSNBC-ISIS fear

Leveraging their even higher profile this week with cable news stations, ISIS has negotiated a syndication deal with all of the major news networks to distribute their propaganda videos.

“This is a win-win for us,” explained MSNBC President Phil Griffin. “First, we get to run an endless loop of every threatening video ISIS makes, to inform the public of course. Then we get to ‘encourage’ the public to be so terrified even of videos that are only empty threats, that they watch more MSNBC and become more informed…or more terrified, six of one, you know? And that is exactly what the terrorists are afraid of,” Griffin said with a confused look.

CNN President Jeff Zucker was similarly enthusiastic about immediately and repeatedly running videos created by ISIS that are solely intended to inflict terror on the American people. “I mean, this is news…isn’t it?! Tell me it’s not, I dare you! The people have a right to know what they should be inordinately terrified of! In fact, we’re going to start using our state of the art computer animation tech to create holographic enactments of every threat ISIS makes to really illustrate to the public just how scared they should constantly be.”

Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes has explained that in addition to faithfully airing and repeating ISIS threat videos frequently, he is in talks with them on a daily show. “We were going to call it, ‘REBELS’ for ‘Radical Extremists Believing in Eliminating Liberal Society’ but we were worried that people might mistake them for Republicans. So we decided instead on calling it ‘Tea Party Patriots – ISIS Edition’.

Asked to comment, ISIS officials released a statement calling for the death of all infidels and thanking the cable news stations for helping to create a valuable synergy that will be great for all of their bottom lines for many years to come.

    The Arabs already have an American cable news fear network. It’s called Fox News.

      jjgravitas -- Might be more accurate to say “The Terrorists already have an Americans cable news fear network” because what are Republicans anymore other than fear mongering terrorists?

    This is like Deja vu isn’t it. If I squint my eyes and don’t listen too carefully to the content, I swear it looks and sounds like the run up to the Iraq war, bought to you by these very same people. When will these corporations learn that what they are doing is called “inciting to riot” under any other circumstances. Fear causes anger and leads to misguided retaliation by those that have succumbed to the propaganda.

    I’m sure ISIS is aware of the fact that these corporate stooges are only trying to play both sides of the coin. Stir up the hornets nest and then sell weapons to subdue the hornets, once subdued, remove the dead ones from the nest and claim any valuables they might find there.

    There’s one thing the Corporate Oligarchs haven’t thought of though, and that is pheromones. The attack pheromone is released in case of threat to the nest. Not all hornets occupy the nest at the same time, and in the case of ISIS we can see they are spread over Iraq and Syria, and have factions probably in many other nations. Once the pheromone is emitted, more will come to take the place of those that have been destroyed, and some of them just might take out the corporate oligarchs.

    Too bad the corporations have decided to use their TV networks to incite to riot, too bad those that operate those networks, like those at MSNBC and Fox and others can’t see beyond their paychecks. Too bad they don’t appear to have the slightest idea as to what they are doing to the people of this planet. Too bad they don’t realize they are fanning flames and are what I consider tantamount to accomplices when it comes to the faction we are now calling D.A.E.S.H.

    You’re absolutely correct AdLib, the MSM is in bed with ISIS and appears to be loving every minute of it. “$$$$$$$$$$, more $$$$$$$ and ratings, that’s our goal, even if we bring the world down around us,” appears to be the motto of the MSM. SHAME and Sadness is all I can feel for those participating in this.

    Btw: Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a cable news network with Keith Olberman, Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow and Joy Ann Reid, owned and operated by those 4 people? What a difference a cable news channel like that would make. :)

    Well said, Adlib. I wonder if isis had to pay for those ads, because that’s what they are.

    • AdLib says:

      Thanks escibacat!

      Nope, that’s free advertising for ISIS that MSNBC, CNN and Fox News provide. Probably worth a million at least in free advertising of fear and terror against America.

      But as long as it ads to their corporations’ bottom line…

  4. James Michael Brodie says:

    Well done, AdLib. No one seems to want to talk about this, and how we are ginning up hatred of the evil, dark “other.” And I will be the jerk and say this: Where was all of this outcry when ISIS was killing people in Africa and the Middle East?

    I keep thinking this madness will stop, but…

      Nov. 13:At least 129 people are killed in Paris with over 350 wounded, most at a concert hall, but some at trendy restaurants and several near a national stadium. The Islamic State calls the attack retaliation for France’s role in airstrikes against the group in both Iraq and Syria.

      Nov. 12:Twin powerful suicide bombings tear through a crowded Shiite neighbourhood of Beirut, killing 43 people and wounding more than 200 others.

      Oct. 31:A bomb downs a Russian airliner 23 minutes after it takes off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh bound for the Russian city of St. Petersburg. The plane crashes in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, home to a potent Islamic State affiliate, killing all 224 people on board, most of them Russian tourists.

      Aug. 6:A suicide bomber attacks a mosque inside a police compound in western Saudi Arabia, killing 15 people in the deadliest attack on the kingdom’s security forces in years. Eleven of the dead belonged to an elite counterterrorism unit whose tasks include protecting the hajj pilgrimage.

      June 26:Gunman kills 38 tourists, mostly Britons, in the coastal resort of Sousse, Tunisia, while a bomb rips through one of Kuwait’s oldest Shiite mosques during Friday prayers, killing 27 people. It was the first major militant attack in Kuwait in more than two decades.

      May 29: A suicide bomber disguised as a woman blows himself up in the parking lot of the only Shiite mosque in the Saudi port city of Dammam, killing four people.

      May 22:A suicide bomber strikes a Shiite mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia as worshippers commemorate the birth of a revered saint, killing 21 people and wounding dozens more. The attack happened in the eastern Qatif region, the heartland of Saudi Arabia’s Shiite Muslim minority. It was the deadliest militant assault in the kingdom in more than a decade.

      March 18: Extremist gunmen open fire on foreign tourists at Tunisia’s National Bardo Museum, killing 22 people in the country’s worst attack on civilians in 13 years.

      AND NOW A WARNING?

    • AdLib says:

      Thanks James!

      I am getting very uncomfortable about how fear is being gobbled up and regurgitated by our media, politicians and many Americans. It’s the same sickly fear-stink but not as intense as happened after 9/11.

      Did you see all the Dems voting in The House for the virtual blocking of admitting Syrian refugees into the US? Really? We have to watch Dems join the stampede again to xenophobia and Islamophobia?

      It’s really pissing me off.

      BTW, it’s not being out of line at all to point out that when ISIS has taken lives of non-white, non-Christians, America and its media and politicians show little interest.

      As you and others know, there is the image of America as an enlightened, unprejudiced beacon of justice but the reality for the country is that for the most part, white Christian lives matter most.

      • James Michael Brodie says:

        I hear you, my friend. And all over the Web, including my “favorites” Yahoo and HP, the nonsense is increasing, with people talking about closing mosques, internment camps, mass killing of Muslims, even dropping nuclear bombs.

        The odd part is that these folks feel free to blame Obama for their hatred rather than taking responsibility for their actions and thoughts. To them, he is the excuse for them to hate because he has taken away “their” country.

        We are heading into a rough stretch, my friend…

        • AdLib says:

          James, these are indeed all the same Tea Partiers who have been driven by their racism to attack Obama since he was inaugurated as President. They’re emboldened now by this surge in open bigotry against Syrian refugees to spout greater bigotry.

          And of course, everything bad that happens in the world is Obama’s fault (and nothing was ever Bush’s fault).

          We are heading into a lot more ugliness, especially with the bigoted Repubs running for President getting a lot of attention, but I think there are enough people who learned from the fearful stampede after 9/11, not to let the fear and hate mongers prevail.

          And fortunately, one of those people is in the White House.
