Russophobe Joe Scarborough’s Big Lies

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Scarborough is a pathetic figure, a laughing stock, a dummkopf know-nothing.

Washington’s revolving door spun the former GOP congressman into a deplorable media scoundrel talking head – reinventing history and gratuitous Russia bashing two of his specialties.

In a shamefully published neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post op-ed, he reinvented Japan’s December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, turning truth on its head about what happened – the way he and other media scoundrels consistently substitute disinformation, Big Lies and fake news for cold hard facts.

There was nothing surprising about imperial Japan’s attack. Washington had broken the nation’s codes, knew what was coming.

By waging economic war on Japan, Franklin Roosevelt forced its ruling authorities to attack Pearl Harbor, giving him the war he wanted.

US intelligence tracked the Japanese fleet across the Pacific. Pearl Harbor’s Admiral HE Kimmel wasn’t warned. 

Waging war demanded mass casualties to transform a pacifist Congress and public into raging Japan haters. WW II followed.

There was nothing good about the misnamed “good war,” the scourge of Nazism relocated from Berlin to Washington, not defeated, supported by Scarborough and other media scoundrels.

Earlier he disgracefully tweeted: “So let’s be clear about this year’s leading headline: ‘AMERICAN PRESIDENT PAWN FOR PUTIN; PROMOTES SOVIET STRATEGY ON NATO.’ ”

NATO was never involved in conflict during the Cold War years, first used aggressively during the Clinton co-presidency’s rape of Yugoslavia, beginning in the mid-90s, killing a nation, culminating in 78 days of terror-bombing Serbia with unprecedented ferocity – naked aggression by any standard.

Scarborough: “…Trump and his Republican Party are showing a disturbing ambivalence toward Russia’s attacks on US democracy.”

Fact: Virtually the entire Congress and Trump regime hardliners oppose his efforts to improve relations with Putin. Scarborough called his outreach “disturbing behavior.”

Like most all others in the nation’s capital and scoundrel media editorial offices, he supports the discredited Big Lie about Russian US election meddling – and all other false accusations against the Kremlin.

Scarborough compared the nonexistent “threat level from Russia to what we faced leading up to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks” – the mother of all US-staged false flags no one in Washington or major medialand is courageous enough to explain.

America faces no threat from Russia or any other countries. The US global war on terror is a colossal hoax. Washington supports the scourge it pretends to oppose.

Only a Russophobe or ignoramus would claim “Russia has been coordinating attacks against the United States for years.” Scarborough is both.

He sounded buffoon-like, saying “our democracy is under attack by the Russians” – a bald-faced lie. 

No democracy exists to attack. America is a warrior state, waging war on humanity at home and abroad – supported by Scarborough and likeminded media scoundrel extremists.
