Cultural Warfare and Free Speech – ClandesTime 047

From Spy Culture:

Joining me for this discussion is Guillermo Jimenez along with regular guest Pearse Redmond. We talked about three recent examples of the crossover of popular culture and politics – the film The Interview, the attack on Charlie Hedbo magazine in Paris, and American Sniper. We talked about how the popular dialogue around these events has diluted and degraded the notion of freedom of speech, and outline a more careful and refined version of the same idea.

    Thank you for this discussion.

    Did you know that the Danish cartoons operation was a false flag operation. The drawings that incited anger in the Muslim world were not published by the danish magazine, they were published by the Danish Muslim community. The person responsible for publishing the most ugly drawings is Ahmad Akkari, he admitted that in an interview with BBC and later in an interview with Alarabiya channel.

    This whole story happened in Arabic, therefore, you don’t have much alternative (non MSM) documents about it in English.

    Charlie Hebdo attacking israel? as much i appreciate the service you are providing, Porkins at least might consider the possibility that speech is more valuable when the speaker has some familiarity with the topic addressed

    I really want to know more about this CIA HQ Establishing shot in Citizenfour. I watched a screener torrent, and saw no such sequence. Did I misunderstand, or has this shot been removed?

      The establishing shot of the CIA HQ was in reference to The Interview not Citizenfour.

        Oh, my bad. That’s what I get for listening to your content in the background. Of course they wouldn’t be so careless as to leave their calling card in Citizenfour… or would they?

        I look forward to your CIA and Hollywood series with Tom Secker. Apologies for my error, and keep up the good work!

        No worries at all Bob. To be honest i hve not yet seen Citizenfour. I did like The Oath, early Poitras film, when I first saw it. It is also about a very interesting Al Qaeda character that marked the offical start of Laura Poitras’ “battle” with the US government.

        Tom and I are so excited about the new series. We should start recording soon, and the episodes will hopefully start coming out in April. Both of us will be on The Bridge with Kira this Saturday and we will be discussing the new show a bit.
