Reprogramming Campaign: NBC Says, Meet “Cosmopolitan” Mrs. Assad

By Debbie Schlussel
First, it was Speaker Nancy Plastic Surgery Pelosi and Republican Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell,” meeting with terrorist-state leader Bashar Assad. Then it was Condi Clueless, who equated the U.S.’ moral position with that of Syria:
I didn’t lecture him, and he didn’t lecture me.
She told that to Newsweek about her talk with Syria’s foreign minister, the first high-level U.S.-Syrian meeting in over two years. Why the heck didn’t she lecture him.
And then, there was last night’s “Meet the new Al-Cosmo Woman, Mrs. Assad” propaganda on NBC (video and written report). It was called a “Conversation with Syria’s First Lady.” Conversation? More like Mash Note to the woman.

Asma Assad: Mrs. Bashar Assad is Syria’s New Propaganda Spokesmodel

Brian Williams intro’d Ann Curry’s gush, er . . . “report” on Asma Assad, the English-accented, former Wall Street worker in her Donna Karan-esque neutrals best. “The suprisingly modern First Lady of Syria . . . bridges the gap from East to West,” Williams drooled.
You see, even if your husband is a terrorist tyrant–in Assad’s case, the SOB (Son of the Butcher of Hama), the shielder and enabler of Nazi war criminals (Alois Brunner), Munich Olympic Murderers (Jamil Al-Gashey), and the welcomer and sponsor of every Islamic Terrorist group in the Alphabet–if your wife is pretty, looks like a Vogue fashion plate, and has an English accent, that give you the kosher (and halal) seal of approval.
It’s an old trick. Been there, seen Rania. Yes, Assad learned the wife trick well from his buddy and fellow Mid-East minority dictator, King Abdullah–who uses his wife, Queen Rania of the Jordanian Kingdom of Fifth Avenue–to soften his extremist country, with Oprah appearances. They’ve married the anti-Hillarys. Their wives look good and coo endlessly about peace, love, and understanding. It answers the Elvis Costello classic lyrics, “What’s so funny about peace, love, and understanding?” What’s funny is when the attractive wives of butchering dictators endlessly chant about it.
Only a coward hides behind his wife. And the Mid-East is quickly acquiring its share of such cowards.
In her report on Mrs. Assad, Ann Curry tells us that the charming first lady of a terrorist state is “changing how the outside world sees Syria.” Funny how Ann Curry transforms Ann Curry’s agenda into a fact. Ann Curry wants us to see this terror cesspool as a nice place, and she’s falling all over herself (and Mrs. Assad) to do so.
There was not a single question from Curry about Asma’s husband’s shielding of terrorists, what Asma thinks about the innocent Israelis and Iraqis and Lebanese her husband has murdered by proxy, whether she will denounce Hezbollah’s murder of 300 U.S. Marines and Embassy civilians. Nope, instead, in Lifetime-esque PR, Curry asked her what her husband, Mr. Assad, is like. “He’s a husband, father, friend,” responds Asama Assad. That’s a nice-sounding father’s day American Greetings card.
But it reminds me of Rosie O’Donnell’s exhaustive utterances of our insignificant commonalities with terrorists. “Terrorist are parents. They love their children, too.” Well, not sure about the second part. But yes, no-one ever said they don’t have sex. Does that mean they’re more human. Animals have sex. It’s just like saying terrorists are human. They go to the bathroom, too. So? BFD. I’m sure all of the 9/11 hijackers occasionally in their lives had the need to relieve themselves. Does that mean they’re nice guys? Hardly.
So Asma’s husband, Bashar Assad–glad host to terrorism–is a husband. So he is rich and has the ability to attract a woman to marry him. Guess what? Bin Laden has 12 wives. Does that make him 12 times more human? (His father had 22 wives.) He is a father. Again, so he has sex and the need to pass on his name, his agenda, like Hafez El-Assad before him. Big deal. Friend? Well, maybe his wife thinks so.
But he isn’t ours and never will be. It’s time Ann Curry, Brian Williams, and Condi Clueless (and her boss) got a clue. Wake up and smell the 9/11. Wake up and smell the Hezbollah. Etc. Etc. Etc. Ad absurdum.
No matter how much they try to brainwash us, there is no “softer side” to Assad’s Syria, regardless of with whom he’s sleeping or to whom he’s married (which aren’t necessarily one and the same).

I couldn’t believe this was being broadcast. Does NBC have any clue about how they are being used as pawns by terrorists? Or is that they just hate America so much they will do anything to bring us down.
I am beginning to think that America is doomed. The liberals have dumbed down graduates to the point that they buy into anything remotely hostile to the US as a good thing. The media is controlled by the liberals. [Hey Rush, remember when you said in the early 90s that you were not going to get involved in buying stations or networks to move them back to center; because you were a commentator only? I do, thanks for getting rich off America's demise.] The Republican party is more the party of “let’s not offend anyone so we can get along” while buying votes (just like the Democrats) with pandering programs that weaken America.
Frustrated beyond belief.

Looks like Syria’s First Lady has it all over Bill’s former first lady. Actually, all over any of Bill’s girls.
Keep the news flowing Debbie. Too bad the US is deaf, dumb and blind.
The liberals haven’t dumbed down the US. Greed and the breakdown of the family has.

Who watches NBC? Or Newsweek? Or Time, US News, ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN, FOX, NPR, USA Today, Wash Post, NY Times, Reuters, AP, etc, etc, etc? Why would you do a thing like that? For news?

steve ventry on May 10, 2007 at 4:58 pm

She’s very attractive.

Aitch on May 10, 2007 at 5:45 pm

Hapless, you sound like a liberal.
Why don’t you explain how people get “dumb” by being greedy?
As for the breakdown of the family, well guess who helped that along?
Neither of these make people dumb. You don’t have to be a pauper or have a good family to see a terrorist for what they are. So please stop excusing the liberals for their actions, and Conservatives who could do something, for their inaction.

Mark L. Jackson on May 10, 2007 at 6:03 pm

Since you like to have fun with people’s names, or pseudo names, lets call you, denMark. denMark you are worse than a liberal. You are lost, or rather “doomed” as you are beginning to think the likely fate of America to be.
Let me help you a bit in your doom. When you are greedy, you go after whatever pleases you. In the process you stop thinking. When you stop thinking You get “dumbed down.”
The family unit kept this country together since the 1600′s. Since the 1950′s it has disintegrated. It being both the country and the family unit. Go ahead, blame that on the liberals. I blame it on people who have stopped thinking.
I refrain from condemming the liberals or praising the conservatives. Neither approach solves anything. The hope for this country is the common man, actually the uncommon man.

Why isn’t she covered? Shouldn’t they be taking her out and stoning her right about now? Don’t tell me that Syria is more advanced than Iran! I don’t believe it.

AmericanJewess on May 11, 2007 at 3:06 am

Mark is right. America is doomed. Our nation is broken beyond repair, and the only way to get it back is to make a new one. And liberal professors teaching agenda instead of facts is a huge part of the problem.
I’d like to see conservatives moving to conservative-leaning states and see where the nation stands after that. It would lead to either a take-over if the numbers are high enough, or a secession if they’re not. Either way, something has to be done. The free-thinking people are not controlling things anymnore.

If the ineptness of NBC would have been comparable to interviewing Hitler’s wife if such took precedent during WWII. Now that they done some coverage on Mrs. Assad, I suppose they will be flying over to Iran to do an exclusive report on Mrs. Achmadinejad next. That is if she is just as cosmopolitan as Asma in regard to looks and charisma.

Jew Chick on May 11, 2007 at 10:12 am

Well Debbie,
Thanks again for being here to point out what I didn’t even know had happened on this phony news show–and YES what a freaking outrage it is for the reasons you cite!
You have given us now some names like Abu Porno, HOprah, Sean Vannity, Det Newsistan, etc. We will need to thus peg Ann Curry and NBC with a name that befits their treasonous sponsorship of such thugs as Assad. (I always loved how the late WXYT radio host Marc Scott used to call Ted Kennedy “the senator whose name is synonymous with Chappequidick” so we would never forget–I can’t refer to him any other way). These enablers co-propagandists do the same with men like Castro and Chavez and Ackmanutjob–what a misuse of free speech. To humanize the likes of such murderers is treason to this nation.
Keep the lights on these traitors, Debbie. We know that Syria will be involved in another hizbollah attack soon and then “mall”-ified Americans will perhaps pay attention. From all we’ve been told, Syria is the likely place that received Saddam’s WMD’s and you know that this will come to light someday as well–hopefully before they are unleashed in some attack on Israel.

You doom and gloom guys are wimps. Stop your tears and do something. You have a vote. That is powerful. John Wayne never solved anything with moping. He preferred to slap them upside the head. You can do that with words. Just remember how mighty is the pen. Stop worrying about liberals. They are pussies. The only reason they get away with anything is the other side just moans. Act, action, now!!!! And please, help the pres find the strawberries; he things they are hidden under the surge. Captain Queeq wants his shortcake.

Syria is the prime example of the inconsistent application of the ‘Bush Doctrine,’ Terrorists and their supporters will be brought to justice.
We should have gone into Syria FIRST after dealing with Afghanistan. Among the justifications used to go into Iraq were the violation of UN sanctions. Not that I am a big fan of the UN. Recall they had approved sanctions against Syria for having their army in Lebanon. And, that sanction is some twenty plus years old. (Yes, Syria has since removed their army, but they still exert an unholy influence over Lebanon. Can you say Hariri?)
Syria is the host of Hezbollah and Hamas. Each has offices in Damascus. They are in the phone book and have street addresses, for crying out loud. Do you really want to go after terrorsts and their supporters, or don’t you? Well, there they are.
Going into Syria FIRST, after dealing with Afghanistan, would have had two immediate results, Lebanon would be given a greater opportunity for success, and Israel, our only true ally in the region, would have the primary supporters of the ‘Palestinians’ cut off at the knees. Israel would better be able to deal with the ‘Palestinian’ issue with Syria gone.
A secondary benefit would be that we would be on Iraq’s border. Maybe Saddam would have gotten some sense in the way that Libya did. Lest we forget that Saddam was our tool that we used against Iran. A tool we no longer have. A tool that we can certainly use now, to some degree. He’s done some stupid things before and he strayed – we slapped him on the wrist and that was that. You don’t throw away your tools, you fix them.
(This is hindsight, but Turkey not allowing us to go into Iraq from their territory would have been a non issue. If necessary we would have gone into Iraq from Syria.)
Pres Bush speaks of all these Al Qaeda types coming into Iraq (A big Scoobby Doo, Huhh? Thought the terrorist were already in Iraq?) to do us harm. Well, where are they coming from besides Saudi Arabia? Me thinks it might be Syria.
Were the consistent application of the ‘Bush Doctrine’ (terrorist and their supporters would be brought to justice) applied we would have helped Israel deal with their terrorist problem. We would have not stood by while Syrian supported elements in Lebanon attacked our ally, Israel. Two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped and are still being held in Syrian co-opted Lebanon, and we do nothing. Having done Syria first, this might not have happened.
And, don’t get me started on Arafat. Was he, or was he not, a terrorist at the time the Bush Doctrine was initiated? Why was a terrorist allowed to die a peaceful death in his sleep?
Before O peration I raqi L iberation a little consistent application of going after terrorists when ever, where ever and how ever would have been nice.
Yep, I am cynical of Pres Bush.

zyzzyg on May 11, 2007 at 10:49 am

The Bush Doctrine, it turns out, is actually to bring terrorists and their supporters to justice…. unless their supporters are pretending to be our allies. If we were going to do what Bush said we were going to do, we’d have invaded Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and Iran in addition to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Everything on tv is an intentional, careful lie. They pretend that everybody is the same so they can make worker bees out of us. For instance, have you noticed all the “racially-ambiguous” people in media, from television to billboards to McDonald’s paper bags? You think that’s an accident? How many people do YOU know who don’t fit into a particular race? The marketers can’t admit that white, Western culture is superior, because that will disrupt the “plantation” they’re building.

I am ashamed about the extent to which our government is complicit in some of the worst abuses in the Middle East by supporting these dictatorial, abusive regimes with massive amounts of aid, most of which goes to the armed forces and the intelligence services (rather than to the impoverished masses, who could genuinely benefit from some assistance) to hold the people down. And I am equally ashamed that the typical American citizen is so blissfully unaware of how we are being used by these regimes to keep them in power. Queen Rania’s appearances on “Oprah” are particularly offensive to my sensibilities, for she spins the situation in Jordan so ridiculously that it is unrecognizable to anyone who has actually been, worked, and/or lived there. People believe Oprah, so it’s a true fraud on the viewing public.
I think our media owes us better. If they are going to do puff pieces on these dictators and their wives, I wish they would just state that up front, rather than continue to depict their pieces as news or somehow educational. They are propaganda pieces, pure and simple. How naive of these supposed journalists to fall for such age-old manipulations.
My only consolation is that I have lived long enough to see some of the most hateful dictatorships fall, usually in some sort of tectonic shift. There will probably be blood on the streets if/when this happens, but I think it will all be for the longer-term good of the average citizen of the region. They would never have voted in the leaders they have. Indeed, there is very little support or love for them.
