It’s not even worth commenting about this but for the sake of completence, I addressed the garbage article by “The Daily Beast”
Oh dear oh dear, where do I start? “When in glass houses, you shouldn’t throw stones” comes to mind. The real thuggish behaviour is displayed by the media itself, who has been one-sided from the first day of these staged protests.
This article makes it out as if the other side (the “revolutionists”, as they call themselves) are not spamming and acting like real thugs. They’re the ones that spam polls along with their zionist fans (the majority of the likes on the “revolution” page are not from Syrians).
You haven’t asked anyone for an interview, unlike what you claim in this article. I know this for a fact because none of us have even heard of you until you wrote this hit-piece. You aren’t even TRYING to be objective, you just want to tarnish the name of anyone who disagrees with this carefully executed plot against Syria. You have a prejudice and you’ve seen it through to the end and even neutral observers can see this from what I read in the comments.
I can give you evidence that the “revolution” people are completely spamming twitter. They managed to make #Help4Syria trend, until we started pointing out that the population in Syria who uses twitter would never be able to make anything trend, when they backed off.
Never mind the social media program by the pentagon (SMISC) which does EXACTLY the behaviour that you somehow condemn in this article:
They act like its something new, but most of the “tweets” in coloured-revolutions supported by the US are not posted in target countries. Remember the revolution in Kyrgyzstan? In 2005 it was given a “colour” (Tulip)
It’s fine for the antis to have a page on facebook, which we’ve shutdown multiple time for racist/sectarian/disgusting contentst, but if the pros leave what is on their mind now they’re thugs and facebook has to delete their page. When they use automatic voting systems to ballot stuff/vote multiple times, it’s democracy. When we voice our opinions and vote once, it’s thuggery?
You failed to mention that facebook has deleted our page more than 80 times now. 80 times. And every time they’ve deleted it, tens of thousands of genuine Syrians have signed up.
Let’s cut to the chase: you never made a good attempt to contact any of us, or understand our point of view. You’ve embedded your own prejiduces into this article of yours. I would have spoken to you, if you had asked, but I see that my breath would be wasted. You will somehow contort every single sentence I utter. This is the case with western journalism, furthering the cause of Anglo-American neocolonialism either purposely or unwittingly.
I did mess up on my point about Kyrgyzstan. You will note the “Tulip” revolution was given wide media coverage and praise. The counter-revolution against it, which was not pulled off by the CIA, had absolutely ZERO presence in social media. It had hardly any coverage in the mass media either. This means the media will only cover things in their favour and in a favourable way.
