I even hesitate to hyperlink this trash, but I thought you should get a good look at how our efforts can be diluted.
As if a rainy dark day wasn't enough to depress me...I had to read that, and more importantly the comment section of the piece in which readers were supposed to nominate runners-up for the honour.
It seems that even out here...they have a leg-up. It makes me sad. Very sad. I see through this article and the aforementioned nominations, that many people still aren't getting it at all. All is lost. Well, perhaps not all...but looking back at all the followers of the "alternative" media, I see just that. Followers. Followers of spurious leaders.
Don't get me wrong...I am not bitter that my site isn't mentioned out of the scores of those proposed. Not in the least. I wouldn't want to be in the company of the zio-shills and numbskulls mentioned. Which would take a whole other post to list. It saddens me however that those that were so honoured by this mention, reminds me of an Oscar night(that's very fitting) or an MTV music awards show. All flash, glitter and sensation...and no substance. We know THAT signature...all too well.
Les Visible was mentioned only in passing in one comment...no "amens". Gilad Atzmon was conspicuous only BY his absence. Lasha Darkmoon...no votes. Adrian Salbuchi...only a passing comment. Kevin McDonald...nil. No Jacque Fresco. Noor Al Haqiqa...zip. Anthony Lawson...not present... among all the hucksters.
I think this whole exercise speaks to the warped perception of the author and respondents. To them...it's TV. It's a popularity contest..."and the winners are!" No wisdom...no insight...plenty of garbage and tin-foil hatters. Plenty of "join-my-site-for-more-info" carnival barkers. Oh dear. It appears by the results of this article and poll that much among the "movement" has been hijacked again. I really had no idea that so many people are so easily fooled...even out here.
If anything could make one just fucking give up...it would be this.
But that is what they want, I guess. The yiddish. There were quite a few there too...defending Mikey Rivero and Henry Mackow and Noam Chomsky and israhell...and declaring that we that think joos and israhell are at the bottom of all the world's problems, should "get real".
I guess my question to the author of the piece...and most if not all of the commenters, would be "alternative to WHAT?" By definition, alternative must be counter to something. The gainsay. The sites and authors listed, however, are alternative to nothing I read in the paper everyday...and probably not very alternative to tv news or talk radio...same shills selling something...same commercial breaks...same damned jews and their willing sycophants.
I know I shouldn't take this one item too seriously. Sites like activistpost are more than likely hasbara plants or something...I have never visited it. I have heard of it...but I hear of a lot of holocaust movies that I haven't, nor will ever watch. This doesn't mean that "they" have captured the movement in its entirety. It doesn't mean that "alternative" has a new watered-down meaning now. Not a bit of it. But still...how defeating to find so many bugs under a rock...it breaks the heart. Or maybe it's just me...
