Media Battlezone: “Damn the Torpedos; Defend the Narrative!”

Ladies and Gentlemen!; boys and girls (and all confused people caught between such simplistic gender constructions handed down by the Theocratic Patriarchy™), it’s been a very rough week for the Make Believe Media (MBM).

It was a week ago this very day that a quartet of Associated Administration’s Press (AP) employees sent this story out on the wire:

For once, 9/11 attacks play small role in election

WASHINGTON (AP) – For the first time in a decade, the Sept. 11 attacks and the wars that resulted are not the focus of the presidential campaign.

President Barack Obama, who leads Republican Mitt Romney in polling on national security issues, may try to change that this fall as he seeks to sway undecided voters and traditional GOP constituencies in a tight race.

So The Gods of the Copybook Headings reared back and gave them a whack.

As September 11, 2012 (“Jihad2: Islamo Boogaloo!”) unfolded, the Obama administration’s last, best hope at salvaging the Lightbringer‘s re-election campaign–his record on foreign policy–was burning like a German Sudanese embassy. An obscure YouTube clip, purportedly the trailer for a movie unheard of before last Tuesday, was fingered as the cause for the ensuing violence in Cairo, Benghazi, and other Islamic hotspots in North Africa and the Middle East.

I might not be up on the nuances involved in Muslim protest protocols, but I find it hard to believe that on the properly prepared protester’s checklist, al-Qaeda flags (Cairo and elsewhere), or RPGs, AK-47s, and fucking mortars (Benghazi) are required items. Supposedly these protests are fueled by what the Islamic Street considers a grievous insult to Islam by the creation of that obscure, amateurish video clip, and demand the people behind it be “brought to justice” for their perceived blasphemy, by what they consider to be, in a significant degree, a complicit American government.

Problem is, the timeline proves this to be a big. fat. fucking. lie.
