War Porn Keeps Americans Committed To A Bogus Fantasy Of What Our Wars Are

War Porn Keeps Americans Committed To A Bogus Fantasy Of What Our Wars Are

Crusader_tee_printed_versionMandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript “This is the amazing thing.  Our government that cannot be trusted to hire agents to tax us — most of you people do not trust the IRS.  You do not trust the government that hires the IRS.  You don’t trust the Department of Homeland Insecurity.  You don’t trust the people that are hired to don the blue gloves to feel you up before you go through or after you go through the porno scanner.  You don’t trust the EPA when it comes to having an agent come out to your house and telling you that you’re living on a wetland.  You don’t trust, you resent, you don’t like, you question the authority of everything this government does except killing people and blowing things up in countries most of us can’t identify on a map. ”  Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Mike:  Back to the writing of Peter Van Buren:

Fortunately, we have just the ticket, one that has been punched again and again for close to a century: Hollywood war movies (to which the Pentagon is always eager to lend a helping hand). American Sniper, which started out with the celebratory tagline [Mike: This is true. Remember, when American Sniper first came out, it was taglined with the movie posters and the television commercials . . .] “the most lethal sniper in U.S. history” and now has the tagline “the most successful war movie of all time,” is just the latest in a long line of films that have kept Americans on their war game. Think of them as war porn, meant to leave us perpetually hyped up. Now, grab some popcorn and settle back to enjoy the show.

Wandering around YouTube recently, I stumbled across some good old government-issue propaganda.  It was a video clearly meant to stir American emotions and prepare us for a long struggle against a determined, brutal, and barbaric enemy whose way of life is a challenge to the most basic American values. Here’s some of what I learned: our enemy is engaged in a crusade against the West; wants to establish a world government and make all of us bow down before it; fights fanatically, beheads prisoners, and is willing to sacrifice the lives of its followers in inhuman suicide attacks.

Revolt_Heather_t_hirts_displayIn propaganda terms, think of this as controlling the narrative. One version of events dominates all others and creates a reality others can only scramble to refute. The exceptions do, however, reveal much about what we don’t normally see of the true nature of American war. They are uncomfortable for any of us to watch, as well as for military recruiters, parents sending a child off to war, and politicians trolling for public support for the next crusade . . .

Of course, there are elements of “nothing new” here. The Romans undoubtedly had their version of war porn that involved mocking the Gauls as sub-humans. Yet in twenty-first-century America, where wars are undeclared and Washington dependent on volunteers for its new foreign legion, the need to keep the public engaged and filled with fear over our enemies is perhaps more acute than ever.

So here’s a question: if the core propaganda messages the U.S. government promoted during World War II are nearly identical to those pushed out today about the Islamic State, and if Hollywood’s war films, themselves a particularly high-class form of propaganda, have promoted the same false images of Americans in conflict from 1941 to the present day, what does that tell us? Is it that our varied enemies across nearly three-quarters of a century of conflict are always unbelievably alike, or is it that when America needs a villain, it always goes to the same script?
