  17. If it wasn’t actually happening, this would be a hilarious satire.

    The very idea of criminalizing disinformation & countering invasive foreign propaganda is utterly priceless; when the US State Dept, with their strings of budget-bloated puzzle palace franchises and free-enterprise war-mongering foundations, profiting obscenely from persuasive ecocidal toxicity, are obsessed with the celebrity manufacture and export of reactionary mass-media deceit!

    This is some kind of absurd last ditch temper tantrum on behalf of the failed neoliberal ‘Chicago consensus.’
