Remarcus, I’m having a hard time understanding your position.

So are you saying you are ‘cool’ with Shooting War’s use and perpetuation of racist hate filled distortions and lies that led to the invasion of Iraq and the murder of hundreds of thousands….?

Well…maybe I should ask yiou this…

Do you support an invasion Iran and it’s classification as a member of the “Axis of Evil”?

If not then how could you possibly support Lappe’s Shooting War which perpetuates all of the racist hate and lies pointing towards Iran.

Your evidence here Mr. Doogen is obviously an elaborate forgery, used to deceive the GNN readership (what’s left of it anyway), and to implement your own tired and played out agenda.

Your Psy-Op methods lack any real substance or factual information. Yes, you hate the site, its owners and its readers. We get it.

It’s a goddamn comic book, and I’m a figment of your fucked up imagination. I am obviously alive and well, but don’t live in Saudi Arabia.

I’m not sure being blogged about counts as being “famous” but Anthony is working on it – teh revolution will be mediatized and made profitable. Which is not particularly evil or anything, just more banal exploitation for profit and personal glory (which can seem a bit hypocritical when you’re decrying it in others to get attention focused on oneself with the aim of attaining profit and power). Now, we all have some degree of social power so that’s not necessarily “evil” or innately destructive or selfish either, it’s what we do with our power that determines whether we walk our talk. (Not surprisingly a lot of people’s talk changes as their path does – shit like having a kid will change both the talk and walk of most, as will making a lot more money and changing classes and tax brackets, etc).

Teh (re)volution will be available for sale in…....The GNN Store!

“Your Psy-Op methods lack any real substance or factual information. Yes, you hate the site, its owners and its readers. We get it.”

No, you don’t. It’s not about ‘me’. The blog is about Shooting War and how it uses current myths like “Iran has nukes!!!....AHHHHHHH!”....

It’s a war profiteering comic book. That is what I hate.

I hate that racist lies and hateful distortions can be rolled up into a comic book and sold to scared youths who might benefit with ‘less’ hateful, racist propaganda like Shooting War.

Don’t we get enough of this shit on the ‘TV”? Isn’t there enough hatefull distortions and lies in the main stream media?

Why perpetuate the lies and hate? Why? To make a living?

I’m sorry that you believe I have a personal vendetta towards this site and the authors of Shooting War. It’s not the case.

Truth is that…I’m just calling it like I see it.

If I see human feces on the wall I have to point it out. That doesn’t mean I hate Anthony, it just means that he likes to throw shit around.

Fifi, I am offering the Sky News link above as proof of fame, or an attempt at fame, and the bookstore talk as an opportunity for people to watch Anthony talk about Shooting War.

My take is that Anthony is using GNN to further his career. He has clearly moved on from this web site. A rotting Forbes on a steaming pile of shit is pretty symbolic of how I feel about this site at times.

I mean, why doesn’t Anthony encourage us to do more as bloggers?
Why doesn’t he encourage us to go to things like the End the Fed Rallies across the U.S. and film and report on it?

Fair enough Floyd, thanks for the explanation. I don’t actually have a problem with careerism per se – people make their choices – it’s always been the attempts to pretend they’re doing something for others and not themselves that I’ve found problematic. That and the either ignorant or willful inability/refusal to see how the systems we build govern and lead behavior both online and off. It was pretty telling that the GNN owners most into news didn’t get very involved here, only Stephen and Anthony who seem to want to be rock/pop stars more than anything else (I suspect it’s why they were so dazzled by Stolen).

I get your point Doogen Howser MD … the comic is perpetuating all these false memes and Anthony either knows better and doesn’t give a fuck or is seriously insane/retarded.

The sales of GNN goodies must have proven to him that we are not buying customers … so he went out and made a book for the credit card spending sheep … and so the memes have been appropriately selected for them.

Here is the problem…

Since 9/11/2001 there is a party going on in the media…alternative and not..if there really is a difference.

These people,pundits,generals,politicians and media whores are making huge profits by selling books and perpetuating distortions like those that lead to the invasion of Iraq. These career pundits (not journalist) perpetuate the same lies about ‘the Islam’ as does Shooting War.

If you don’t believe me, read the ‘comic book’ and consider the target market.

Perpetuating these dis-proven and dangerous distortions is fucking stupid at this time in history. Perpetuating it by putting it in comics is, IMO, beyond the pale.

For me…it’s more an issue of timing.

If Tony could just wait until Americans are made aware that there really isn’t a massing ISLAMIC JUNTA preparing Armies to first kill the Jews and then move onto USA!!!

When Americans are made aware that there really IS a JUNTA trying to convince them that this evil scary threat exists….and Iran should be destroyed..

...well then I’ll give my green light on Anthony’s comic book.

He’s made a questionable judgment and decided to sell his shit at the worst time in history, IMO.

On second thought, from a sales perspective…the highly irrational state of fear that people have relating to the topic his comic covers is probably not too bad for sales.

This shit is dangerous because Americans are literally being bombarded with similar themes and messages that are based on these un-proven lies and distortions like “Iran Has Nukes” or perpetuating this irrational fear that there is an Islamist Junta gaining power and amassing forces…

It’s bullshit. And I have to wonder why people like Remarcus can get more upset about me spending time making a statement of protest about something I feel so strongly about…and can’t bring him/her self to even address the dangerous topic at hand.

I don’t feel strongly about GNN or Tony, or his comic book. I feel strongly and am strong apposed to perpetuating these distortions and lies because it’s dangerous.

I would go as far as to suggest that Tony’s Shooting War was given the green light because of the false hoods and distortions it uses.

Instead, why doesn’t tony right a real book with real facts? One about a ‘real’ junta trying to convince Americans that they should be worried about yet another bullshit threat in Iran.

The ‘real’ junta that, like Shooting War, paints American’s as fear-filled, shivering fat idiots.

James – Comic books are a tried and true propaganda tool.

And this is hardly the first one about Iran…

http://www.mohammadmossadegh.com/news/t-man-comic-book-propaganda/

“Published from 1951 to 1956, T-Man was among the more enduring anticommunist titles and probably the only comic book ever to feature the adventures of a U.S. Treasury agent. A T-Man story published in late 1951 opens in Teheran at a meeting between British diplomats and an Iranian official, in which the participants are about to conclude a treaty granting Great Britain and the United States exclusive oil rights to Iranian oil production. The Iranian leader tells the Englishman that he is happy to give away these rights because the British and Americans have demonstrated that they respect Iranian laws and customs. Suddenly he is interrupted by someone who appears to be U.S. Treasury agent Pete Trask, who burst into the room, throws a squealing pig at the Iranian official, and says, “Here rag-head! Take this little fellow home and barbecue him for breakfast!” The agent then flees, having effectively sabotaged the treaty. Outraged by this deliberate (and extraordinarily absurd) insult to Islamic customs, the Iranian leader cancels the treaty. Later it is revealed that this ruse was the work of a Soviet agent disguised as Trask, who is trying to poison relations between Iran and the West. Inevitably, the real Pete Trask sets matters straight and ensures that the treary is signed. In this tale, obviously inspired by the recent overthrow of the anti-Western Mossadegh government in Iran, Communism is once again contained and the United States and Great Britain win exclusive rights to Iranian oil. What Iran stands to gain from this is unclear, and, apparently unimportant.”

Real life is ALWAYS weirder than you imagine.

Thanks for commenting on the issue I bring UP. I see this as a fake paper tiger for Tony and Silverback to toss around when they need the streed cred.

I mean..come…on….he’s like the…East Coast Bunker GNN Chief Editor In Charge….

I’ve done research on comic books being used to deliver ‘the message’ to the people. I’ve come across some Vietnam comic books that are along the same lines as the one you described. These were directed at the Vietnamese to help vilify the evil, dirty dinks who also happened to be as Red as Cristian blood. Commies and brown! Almost as scary as today’s Middle Eastern colored terrorists!

“Real life is ALWAYS weirder than you imagine.”

Isn’t it. Speaking of StarBucks…I wonder if Lappe’ was writing about a Starbucks he lives by in NYC?

James – I have no idea where Anthony lives (apart from NYC) and I have no particular interest in that kind of stuff (or pointing any of the many wackos that visit or live on GNN in his direction). The reason why I never started blogging or writing articles is that at the beginning of GNN V2 it became very clear that Anthony and Stephen were just riding the “citizen journalism” wave that was already cresting and trying to create their own little media empire (not a media collective, so essentially they were asking the many to work for the glory of the few – meaning themselves and anyone who will follow them with unquestioning loyalty…made do their work for them, etc). When called on it, they avoided the issue, as they have regarding the image they’re creating here and the implications. They were also clearly very naive or willfully ignorant regarding the interwebs and how a website’s structure drives use and how people interact with each other (hello, Stolen).

I tend to see Stephen and Anthony as willfully ignorant and self-serving – if they were more honest and open I’d see them as people trying to balance out the complexities of making a living and being ethical. So far, they’ve been sorely lacking in that kind of basic integrity.

This is just anecdotal obviously but I know quite a lot of kids from wealthy families involved in “protest” art and peeps in “revolutionary” rock bands who are in it for the ego fluffing and money. I also know or have met quite a few people from outrageous wealth who are doing good work with their inheritances or with their family’s help, and others who are going it alone. None of us choose our families, we all have a choice about what we do as adults and whether we acknowledge our luck and privileges or whether we pretend we’re “victims” and appropriate the suffering of others to try to pretend that our existential angst is the same as the suffering of someone watching their child starve to death or be blown into bits.

Anthony and Stephen may even possibly mean well, I’m sure they’re entirely convinced they’re “good” people. Or they could be a a propaganda front run by people who also are convinced they’re doing the right thing. Most people believe they’re “good” people if they operate in a black/white good/evil religious mentality. The rest of us do our best to act with integrity and in accord with our ethics in a complex world where we never have all the information. It’s usually not very good for one’s career, unfortunately.

Fifi,
On one hand I’m sure Anthony is a great guy. Just doing the G thang and all that.

On the other hand…he used to work for the same department that would be responsible for producing these types of comics and propaganda….which would be used to hide ‘the message’ and deliver it to the sub-conscious by tickling fears and irrational superstitions.

In fact, if you were to read pre-911 State Department and USIA literature that discusses the future of it’s existence…they talk about using ‘new media’ to target audiences in much of the same ways that GNN does..or seemed to attempt to do.

Either way I’ve decided to share my concerns because I don’t care one way or another if Anthony is willfully ignorant because it benefits him or if he really believes this or that.

All I have to do is talk to my buddy who thinks Iran is foaming at the mouth with a finger on the red button…that doesn’t exist. Then I know this sort of comic book is wrong.

Imagine this….an argument with a Marine…I[m trying to express some of my points that you see on this blog…and he snaps and screams:

THEY WILL SLIT YOUR FUCKING LITTLE GIRLS THROAT!!!! WHAT DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND!!!!”

That was seriously disturbing and, I think, a result of propaganda like ShootingWar, 24, Rambo, and all the other “EVIL ISLAM” bullshit that is tossed around without question.

About starbucks….in NYC there is normally one nearby no matter where you are.

James – And this war is already coming home in the heads of the soldiers who lived through it and it isn’t going to stay there. Dehumanizing young men and teaching them that civilians are the enemy and to shoot to kill is going to have huge repercussions for all Americans (and already the deaths at home are mounting). You have to hate “them” to be able to justify your own actions and believe that you’re any different than “them” while killing children.

True dat about Starbucks, though apparently fancy expensive desert coffees (as opposed to a regular cheap latté) are one thing that people have been cutting out and Starbucks is hurting. Yay!

QUESTIONS WHICH JAMES DOOGAN, COWARD EXTRAORDINAIRE, HAS REFUSED TO ANSWER:

“What about all the direct action that isn’t a set up?
Does the thought of people acting of their own accord, instead of in accordance with what they are told to do by the people with guns, frighten you, simpleton?”

“How have I presented a “completely irrational description of reality”? Be specific. I feel I have been very realistic in my protrayal of current events and the necessary responses to them. The Holocene Extinction Event is happening. Domestication is real, we live it every day; so do animals in factory farms and fenced-in pastures all over the world.”

“What kinds of direct action do you support and take part in? Why do you support some types, but not ELF or ALF actions? Why do you completely lack both an understanding of – and respect for – diversity of tactics?”

“Where have I indicated despair and hopelessness?”

Take your time, I know there are a few large words to digest.
