Flies in the face of reality; abjectly filthy anti-Palestinian propaganda and tool of U.S. imperialism
9 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode strains credulity in every conceivable way. This episode is a testament to the vapid, insipid, Orwellian, despicable, filthy, predictable, and very American tradition of jingoistic rabid idiocy broadcast over the television networks. If television executives were aiming to see how fast and how loudly they could raise the gorge in white nationalists' throats, how Pavlovianesquely they could succeed in getting the typical 'Murican TV viewer to clench his fist, furrow his brow, and stand to recite the pledge of allegiance, I'm betting they were well content after the airing of this episode of this typically jingoist series.

First off, Google Operation Rainbow, I dare you. Now. The reader can easily inform herself that throughout 2004 and into 2005, the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) were engaged in the demolition of 300 homes in Gaza, in nightly raids upon the imprisoned population there, etc. etc. For the effing zillionth time, the tired old despicable lazy trope of "but but but but.......they KILLED ONE OF OUR SOLDIERS!" or "How DARE they kill AN American!!!!!" when it has in fact been we Americans who fund the slaughter and massacre of Palestinians by Israel to the tune of billions a year. As *IF* the righteous resistance of an illegally occupied, oppressed population is somehow "terrorism," or a crime. The rockets going from Gaza to Israel are the self defense of an oppressed people who have had their houses, homes, and land stolen from them, whose population is regularly massacred with aerial combat missions of the IDF, and all throughout this filthy episode, the despicably white nationalist rabidly jingoism bastards of a white house staff repeatedly every other sentences simply echo the murderous policy of the U.S. and Israel toward Palestine. This show is a primer in rabid, foamy mouthed white nationalism and zionism; it could have been written by Dershowitz. The content of this episode is unseemly, slanderous, underhanded, purposefully deceitful and one-sides. I can't watch any more at all; I'm too sickened. Srsly eff this show for real, what a loser. Disgusting. Tool of U.S. colonial enterprise and apologetics for U.S. foreign policy. I'm reminded of the insincerity of liberals; how liberals are in fact right of center in actuality. It just depends weather they themselves are being inconvenienced, or if oppressed people are. If it's the latter, liberals couldn't care less, just like their (R) brethren. This episode is the epitome of and a quintessential example of zionist apologetics for the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. Frankly, not interested in following any other programs this cast has been in b/c I can't see being a part of this in good conscience. Just the most foul, transparent example of Newspeak in TV screenplays. Shame.
