On Aaron Bushnell, Methinks The Israel Apologist Doth Protest Too Much

I never thought I'd ever see anything worse than babies being ripped apart by military explosives until I started seeing babies being starved. Babies killed with bombs is horrifying, but starving babies causes PANIC. It triggers a deep, primal THIS NEEDS TO STOP instinct.

Aaron Bushnell wasn't addressing the Israeli government with his soul-jarring message. He wasn't even addressing his own government. He was addressing you. Each of us. His goal was to get us all to open our eyes to the horror of what's happening, and spur us to action to end it.

If you've noticed Israel apologist trolls swarming all over the Aaron Bushnell story, it's because they know how damaging a US airman self-immolating while screaming "Free Palestine" is to US and Israeli information interests, and they're scrambling to manipulate the narrative.

Israel apologists are all over the internet swarming the comments of anyone discussing Aaron Bushnell going "No one cares! He died for nothing! He didn't accomplish anything!" Bitch if he didn't accomplish anything you wouldn't be here in my notifications frantically telling me he didn't accomplish anything.

Who do these losers think they're kidding? The very fact that they need to do this proves them wrong. They're like a guy who spends hours sending a woman dozens of texts about how he totally doesn't care that she rejected his advances. Methinks the Israel apologist doth protest too much.

Many high-profile Israel supporters have been circulating a fake screenshot of a Reddit account run by Bushnell saying "Palestine will be free when all the jews are dead." The fact that they're doing this illustrates two things: that Israel supporters are unscrupulous liars, and that they are freaking the fuck out about how much damage Bushnell has done to their cause.
