American "Mainstream Media" changing war-on-terror terminology


Leftist media employ devious, sinister tactic to deceive Americans, alter perception
WND [WorldNetDaily] - By Joe Kovacs - September 5, 2011
American news media are deliberately reshaping war-on-terror terminology for propaganda purposes to prevent radical Muslims from being perceived in a negative light in the wake of the 9/11 attacks a decade ago. ...

"A big part of the problem facing America today is the obfuscation and disinformation fed to the American people as a daily diet of slow poison," says Geller, publisher of the popular AtlasShrugs.com.

"Today the left is manipulating language to make Americans ignorant or complacent about the Islamic threat."
She says one simple example can be seen with how the word "extremist" is now utilized in news stories.
"It is commonly used of both Islamic jihad terrorists, and those who fight against them and against Islamization in general," Geller explains.
"So for the mainstream lapdog media, the Fort Hood jihad assassin Major Hasan is an 'extremist,' and so am I. The word is used to claim that Islam has nothing to do with jihad terrorism - it's all just 'extremism,' and every religion has its 'extremists.' ...

Geller says in case you've ever wondered why you never got the straight story on Islam directly after Sept. 11, 2001, and still haven't, as well as "why the media seems in the tank for jihad, here's a clue."
"A couple of weeks after 9/11, the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) issued a directive about how to cover Islam. For sheer propaganda, their 'Diversity Guidelines' are hard to beat. In fact, the enemy who attacked our country in an attempt to bring it down may just as well have been writing the narrative."

The guidelines, adopted less than a month after the terrorist attacks, urge journalists to "take steps against racial profiling in their coverage of the war on terrorism and to reaffirm their commitment to use language that is informative and not inflammatory."
Some of the recommended steps include seeking out people from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds when photographing Americans mourning those lost in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania, and seeking truth through a variety of voices and perspectives that help audiences understand the complexities of the tragic events.

The translation, says Geller, is "despite the horror, murder, and bloodshed of jihad, don't tell the people. That is what is important: the scrubbing of the truth. In effect, they are aiding in the self-enforcement of the Shariah (blasphemy laws)."
Another recommended step to deflect attention away from the Islamic character of jihad, reporters have been instructed to "portray Muslims, Arabs, and Middle Eastern, and South Asian Americans in the richness of their diverse experiences."

"Portray the beheaders, the homicide bombers, and the infiltrators in the 'richness of their diverse experience'?" asks Geller. "You mean the stonings, amputations, Shariah law, clitorectomies, Jew-hatred, Hindu-hatred, the brutal conquests of India and Persia, and the caliphate? Yes, infidels, that is the poisonous fruit of the revered institution of multiculturalism."
In her book, Geller gives an in-depth examination of how those who work at American news agencies are being turned against the very people for whom they report.
"The SPJ is telling journalists to throw Americans under the bus and kiss the adherents to the Islamic ideology that murdered our people and want to take over this country."
