The so-called "Arab Spring" is a political fraud.

In reality, the Arab Spring is a destabilization campaign fomented by the global American Empire to get rid of US puppets who had outgrown their usefulness and to implement America's sinister "Creative Destruction" agenda throughout the region.

The fact that the Anglo-American imperial "Left" predictably has regurgitated US propaganda about the "glorious Arab Spring" reveals what they really are.

The American Left is but the left hand of the American world empire.

As such, they are no better than the American Right or American moderates.

American Leftists and "peace activists" posture as critics of the American Empire--even as they peddle its lies and propaganda.

Indeed, many of these so-called American Left organizations are funded by the very same US political establishment they claim to oppose.

They are the LEFT GATEKEEPERS.

And they include a who's who list of major American "left" or progressive mouthpieces including COUNTERPUNCH, MOTHER JONES, the PROGRESSIVE, DEMOCRACY NOW, ALTERNET, and even THE NATION INSTITUTE (which incidentally is the overseer of this website).

Media Outlets Such as “Democracy Now!” are Establishment Controlled News Sources

P.S. The political darling of American “leftists,” the Occupy Wall Street movement, is also a fraud.

In this case, the so-called Occupy Movement is closely connected to the various NGOS and proxy organizations of the very same American establishment they purport to oppose.

That comment is like the fundamentalist who interprets any sign of evolution as "God's hand." For instance, dinosaur bones are only "God's way of testing us."

What you're saying is that any popular uprising can be interpreted as caused by an "evil conspiracy" of "imperialists."

Somehow, the evil conspirators are perfect and all-knowing, they always succeed, and they are responsible for everything you don't like, including the runny eggs you got at the cafe yesterday.

In other words, they are omniscient, omnipresent, all-knowing, and always successful. And yet somehow, YOU, a puny ordinary mortal who is capable of making mistakes and misreading the data, knows all about them.

But of course, since I doubt your knowledge, I must be either a "left gatekeeper" or an evil conspirator. There is no such thing in your thought system as a sincere disbeliever in your theories. Everyone is either with you or part of the evil.

Never mind that that is the clinical definition of cult thinking.

I think the logical conclusion of the extreme conspiracy people is that the evil conspirators are so evil that the genuinely good people need to slaughter them in their sleep. Anything short of that is only being a "left gatekeeper."

Of course, this means that Schell is worse than wrong. Cleansing violence is the only way to get rid of all that evil. Either that, or a rescue by friendly space aliens.
