Left and Right agreement on Syria?

The only thing keeping westerners from seeing through the lies that they’ve been told about Syria is the unquestioned assumption that their own government could not possibly be that evil. They have no trouble believing that a foreigner from a Muslim-majority country could be gratuitously using chemical weapons on children at the most strategically disastrous time possible and bombing his own civilians for no discernible reason other than perhaps sheer sexual sadism, but the possibility that their government is making those things up in order to manufacture consent for regime change is ruled out before any critical analysis of the situation even begins.


The Facebook page of James Alex Fields Jr., the man who drove a car into anti-racist protestors, killing one and injuring dozens of others:


  1. What did Woody Guthrie write on his guitar? “This Machine Collaborates with Fascists to Stop the Deep State”? I’ll stick with Woody, Caitlin Johnstone can go to hell.

  2. ‘In the 1950s Alois Brunner is believed to have fled to Syria. He reportedly later served as an adviser to President Hafez al-Assad and is thought to have instructed his government on torture tactics.’

    All the Fascists, from Nick Griffin in Britain, to David Duke in the U.S. are big Assad regime fans. They see what they look for in a murderous Fascist regime. That the Assad regime has been given succour in its murderous Fascist policy by some on the ‘Left’ is utterly disgusting.
