As Bush walks out the door, I'm reminded that no other TV show has attempted to persuade Americans into the Bush Administration account on world events as the show 24. The show 24 is undeniably the single largest propaganda tool in the history of American television. A tool that keeps spreading blessings to the Bush Neocon agenda and in the very words of its creator Joel Surnow regarding the show, it "makes people look at what we're dealing with" and "America wants the war on terror fought by Jack Bauer, he's a Patriot" Yes, these are the words spoken by the creator of 24, more on him later.
So for those Americans that want to believe we are the 'good guys' I give to you 24. No other show will JUSTIFY American aggression and violence more than 24 in what it describes as the "whatever it takes" attitude towards the created enemy known as terrorism. The creators of the show leave no rock unturned. If you want to see justified murders, tortures, insubordination, dirty secrets, corruption, lies, subversions of the constitution, money embezzling, weapons sales, bribery, illegal detentions and more murders you tuned to the right show! Relax and sit down for this show and the creators will show you what's "REALLY" going on around the world. They will show you that under the 'right' circumstances you CAN do as you please, and in the end YOU will be vindicated for acting on behalf of the greater good. Does this mindset and mentality sound familiar? It's as if the show was personally directed by Bush and Cheney to push THEIR message to the world. Does this not give you an eerie feeling? How can this be?
In last nights episode Jack Bauer murdered a lot of people as usual but since they were the bad guys, the 'rebels' even though they were the actual natives defending their OWN land they were portrayed as the scary bad guys. Prior to this scene the director shows you how horrible these rebels are, that they are willing to kill a perceived traitor. Killing a traitor? Where did they get that idea? and what crazy people would do such a thing? But you can count on the scary music to guide your feelings through this entire show. Let the creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran TELL YOU who the bad guys are and DEFINE for our minds what it is that constitutes a 'patriotic' person.
It bothers me quite a bit to find out that the shows primary creator Joel Surnow is a Jewish man who is best of friends with Rush Limbaugh, that's right Rush himself, that's right Jewish! It scares me that he is close friends and supporter of 'Rick Santorium' a self professed Neocon and strong proponent of the Iraq invasion, who he has financially and publicly supported. I have a big problem that he is a self professed 'right wing nut job', it bothers me that the show 24 debuted on November 6th 2001, right after 9-11 to prey into the fears of Americans. In the words of Surnow "the show obviously plays off the anxieties that have beset the country since September 11th and it sends a political message" Well it's good to hear you admit that Mr. Surnow! It also bothers me that Mr. Surnow has worked for years with Fox News Network, that's right people, Fox News! It also bothers me that the show 24 itself, is aired by none other than Fox TV Network owned by none other than Rupert Murdoch!
Mr Surnow, with the help of the Right Wing Neocons and Fox TV took it upon themselves to push a political message to the unassuming minds of Americans as a favor to the Bush administration to frame the wars, 9-11, torture and killings and define for all of us once and for all what the new meaning of Patriotism is. But, did anyone take note of this? Someone named Jane Mayer did in her February 19th 2007 article for the New Yorker http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2007/02/19/070219fa_fact_mayer. This makes me wonder whether Ms Mayer managed to keep her job after exposing the 24 creator.
So this is the world we live in. In a world where there is a constant battle for ideologies which in this case is a powerful 8 year movement to bring us closer and closer to the End of America as we once knew it, and the end of our freedoms in the name of security. Good job Bush and Cheney you really moved the needle forward and pushed us far into your agenda, but don't forget to thank Fox TV network and creators of 24 Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran. Thank them a lot, because you and I both know that Americans are hypnotized by Television and what they constantly see. Let's consider that 24 airs on Murdoch's network and is distributed to Africa, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East… not to mention U.K.(until recently) and China (DVD). That's a lot of people hypnotized into watching the Bush-Cheney version of reality don't you think? Knowing that Murdoch is involved; does it surprise anyone that the American-Israeli agenda is being sold throughout the world?
So what will be of us when a group's agenda (American-Jewish-Israeli) that represents 2% of the population in the U.S. is given top priority because it is merged with the Neocon Imperialistic-Capitalistic-Military-Industrial-Complex and media machine that the world faces today? I don't have an answer but I do know that if 2009 is not remembered as the time period in which Americans launched a SURGE of constitutional rights knowledge we can say goodbye now to America and everything we used to be. Years from now this article will be deleted and a mere spec of dust in the sand if we don't act now.
So as we say goodbye to Bush let's remember the parts he leaves behind. The seeds that he hopes will continue to grow and perpetuate his administrations lies. May god help us all (if he/she/it exists). So as you leave, Mr. Bush, I ask you to please take your TV show with you for all of our sakes. And at the same time I ask everyone to warn their kids about watching this show of delusions that glorifies almost everything the Nazi's did in the name of U.S. patriotism and security. And I ask you to share this article with everyone you know.
