Perhaps many are confused about the reason so many western teens are being radicalized and turned into terrorists. At the same time many Americans who experienced the Cold War with Communist Russia first hand can’t seem to comprehend why many are flocking to Russia Today (RT) for news. Most Americans are shocked to learn that ISIS (known as ISIL and DASH by anti-American scum) actually put out a very nice looking magazine that resembles what you would see on the racks near the grocery store check-out.
In their magazine ISIS doesn’t put forth the crazy lunatic image you would imagine. It is more geared toward the wisdom of the millennial generation and attempts to use their knowledge of Western corruption in the media and political spheres, while also tapping into the strong emotions (and lack of critical thought) of the younger readers. ISIS continues to introduce its own version of history and current events that tend to be believable to many vulnerable people. The question is can you blame them for falling into this trap when all they get from mainstream western media and politics is two sides of constant lies?
Similarly, RT continues to produce follow-ups on the constant lies from mainstream western media outlets. Many RT fans in America aren’t old enough to remember when we had a constant fear of Russia attacking us. In those days it was unthinkable to listen to what the Russians had to say but now they found a way into the West. They cover controversial figures like Snowden and Assange; figures slapped with the label of criminal and forgotten in the western media. Now these forgotten individuals are back because their hacks revealed more corruption in the DNC (proving the Democratic party rigged elections). It is important to keep in mind that these men are most likely Russian agents; whether from the beginning or by conversion. This time rather than sneaking around assassinating people all RT has to do is cover the glossed over scandals that the American media doesn’t want covered. Again, it creates lack of confidence in one’s own country. Again, can you blame millennials for going down this rabbit hole?
The common denominator that both RT and ISIS Magazine (“Dabik” in their language) have in common are the allure they provide to a generation abandoned by their politicians and exploited by the media. Young people see through this and are desperately seeking the truth. The only problem is they are coming up empty handed in the mainstream media. In the mean time they are ripe for the manipulation of terrorists and foreign governments. My advice for anyone reading this is to take a hard look at real facts and check multiple sources before believing anything. When you find one lie you may realize that outlet is just full of it and you need to put on your cowboy boots when they start talking.
