The Hollywood Industrial Complex produces deceptive cultural products that glorify war and lure the American public into supporting their government’s imperialist agenda. Films funded by the DOD not only anesthetize violence, but create a narrative that justifies it through plot lines, characters, and scenes that alienate American “enemies” and offer single-sided reasoning for military presence abroad
On October 21st, a juvenile man was arrested for the premeditated attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in New Hampshire. According to the Associated Press, “an intruder used a hatchet to destroy computers, plumbing fixtures, phones and medical equipment” (AP, 2015). This attack is by no means isolated. This has been the fifth attack on Planned Parenthood clinics since July.
The fact is that of the 508 counterterrorism convictions after 9/11, 243 of the defendants, nearly 50 percent were targeted via an informant, a government-paid spy who infiltrates Muslim communities to snatch people that could get “radicalized.” Of those 243 defendants, 158 were caught via an FBI sting, an operation where the defendant is entrapped by a terrorist plot that the FBI designs, and of those 158, 49 were lured by the informant who also led the presumed plot. Meaning that a great number of the terrorist plots that the FBI gloriously stopped in the US were actually manufactured by the FBI itself.
