AJ+ Is Al Jazeera

AJ+ Is Al Jazeera


They are turning social media against us. Using it to influence our elections. Spreading propaganda. Disguising it as news. Pretty scary stuff. I’m not talking about Russia. That’s amateur hour. The media organization I’m talking about
operates right here, in the USA. Out in the open. Legally. It has a large staff of on-air personalities,
reporters, cameramen and editors. It operates out of state-of-the art studios
in Washington DC, London, Rio, and half a dozen other major cities. It produces videos, news reports, and documentaries. It has tens of millions of social media followers. Their content is viewed and shared by countless
young people across the western world. In short, they’re targeting us. CNN, right? Wrong. Fox News? Wrong again. The answer is… AJ+. If you’ve spent time on social media, you’ve
seen their stuff, I promise you. This is isn’t the work of a scrappy start-up
in Silicon Valley. AJ+ is bankrolled by the government of Qatar. Never heard of Qatar? Most people haven’t. It’s a tiny Persian Gulf state with lots
of oil money; billions of dollars they’re not afraid to spend on causes they believe
in—causes like the terror group Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip. Without billions from Qatar and its ally,
Iran, Hamas would blow away in the next desert sandstorm. But Hamas is only part of Qatar’s terror
portfolio. The Qatar government bankrolls the Muslim
Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda in Yemen and Syria, radical extremists in Libya, and Hezbollah
in Lebanon—in other words, a rogues gallery of murderous Islamist terror groups. Qatar’s propaganda arm is the Arab news
service Al Jazeera—which it owns lock, stock and America-hating, Israel-hating, barrels. Al Jazeera made a splashy attempt to break
into the US media market in 2013. They bought a cable franchise for $400 million
dollars from former Vice President Al Gore. They signed up some major American TV journalists
and opened up shop in New York and Washington. But the effort failed. Americans just couldn’t cozy up to the idea
that a news network that they had rightly associated with Osama bin Laden could be trusted. But Al Jazeera didn’t disappear. They just re-branded into the much nicer sounding
“AJPlus” and they concentrated their efforts on the internet and a market that didn’t
have a bin Laden fixation—or much connection to 9/11 at all: young people. And they’ve been amazingly successful. Their productions are well-produced, slick
and left. In fact, they are so left that they make videos
railing against leftist white women for being insufficiently sympathetic to leftist women
of color, especially women of color who are gay or transgendered. It’s hard to ignore the irony that a media
operation fully funded by a country that oppresses women and gays makes this kind of content
for an American audience. But the irony goes deeper. The young and hip presenters at AJ+ depict
America as racist through and through —past and present. Black Lives Matter has no greater media ally
than AJ+. Nor do avowed socialists like Congresswoman
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AJ+ jumped on her bandwagon early on, making
a video in the summer of 2018 about then-candidate Ocasio-Cortez entitled “Socialist Rising.” Why, you might ask, would the government of
a Middle Eastern country care about influencing young Americans? The answer is this: anything that weakens
the US is a victory for them and their radical form of Islam. If they can convince young Americans that
the US is a bad place, young Americans are less likely to defend it, and less likely
to support its efforts to fight Islamic terror. And if America is bad, then anyone it supports
must also be bad. America supports Israel. Qatar, like its allies in the Iranian theocracy,
wants Israel destroyed. So AJ+ turns out video after video, news report
after news report, portraying the democratic, free, liberal Israel as a repressive apartheid
state despite the fact that Muslims living in Israel have more rights—such as freedom
of expression and the equality of women and gays—than Muslims living In Qatar. In AJ+’s world, Israel attacks their peaceful
neighbors in Gaza for no good reason. No need to mention the rocket attacks randomly
directed at Israeli civilians. Weaken America. Weaken Israel. To Qatar, a few billion dollars for a few
decades is a cheap price to pay if it can achieve those goals. But you don’t have to play into their game. The next time you see an AJ+ video or so-called
“news report,” consider the source. Or better still, swipe left. I’m Raheem Kassam for Prager University.

  1. There is no denial that our history has a racist stain on it, and that there are still pockets of racist individuals in our nation today. Thankfully they are a very tiny minority in today's society, and for anyone to apply blanket accusations on our nation's history, have failed to note the actions of historical figures who did FAR more good in building what we have come to inherit today. I find it sad that they have failed to take note of the phrase in the preamble of the constitution which reads "In order to create a more perfect union…". Our founding fathers knew that what they were doing was flawed, and that such issues that plagued our nation couldn't be resolved in their time, so they left it up to us to succeed where they have failed! Why is that so hard for people to comprehend but easy to cast condemnation and vitriol at?

  2. I'm glad PragerU actually cited their sources for this video. So, as the fact checker I am, I decided to go take a look. The sources about Isreal funding AJ+ were correct. Same with the funding terrorists claims. But when they started calling AJ+ anti American and said that they were making lies about America being extremely racist I got skeptical. So I looked at their scources. So first, I will discuss the Isreal border wall video they cited. And, in my opinion, PraugerU was wrong. The border wall was to keep out workers and migrants and to cut Palestine off. And while Palestine also has it's own issues, it's unfair to portray Isreal as Liberal and freedom loving and perfect. Now, on the police brutality and racism video. I think that PraugerU exxaderated this videos meaning. While I disagreed with what was said in some parts of the video it did tap into the fact that even today, the U.S is still not totally on board with being accepting of people of color. The fact that PraugerU thinks that the U.S is unified and almost all of it population get along is completely false. Than the final video. This video talked about how white feminists were ignoring the needs of women of color. This video and PraugerUs opinion on it were very confusing, but in my opinion, the slightly exaggerated the videos meaning. Wow, I have been looking up sources and writing this for almost an hour and a half. In conclusion while they got some facts right they horribly exxaderated the content of the 3 AJ+ videos to be anti American and made to act as propaganda. Feel free to debate this subject with me as I am open to all opinions. Also, tell me if I got anything wrong. It would be awesome if PraugerU responded to this comment so I knew that they were getting my feedback to make their videos more truthful and honest.

  3. I watch the news for local news in my State I could care less about A+J. I believe you gotta be dumber than a bowl of 🐶💩 to believe anyone's source of news these days. When anyone bring up #blacklivesmatter, talk about Israel & Islam conflicts, & communism I tend to look at them sideways. If America ever get attacked again and it's Russians or Chinese 10 years later after the attack The US will find a way to divert there attention back to certain groups of people in the US.

  4. That news organization sounds very bad, and probably is. But this channel is hardly any better. I would prefer not to watch fear mongering ridiculousness. Don't you people realize how completely partisan Prager U is? Can't you see they are obviously trying to rile you up? Come on, have some self respect. (AJ plus is bad however, I'm not saying it's good in anyway)

  5. Yes but isn't Qatar one of our "best friends" along with Saudi Arabia? I mean the US has a permanent base there and President Trump has been pretty cozy with the Emir there, we sell them tons of military equipment so we indirectly support Hamas.

  6. The best part is you can go watch these videos and reports and see how blatantly unfounded their claims are. Aj+ is not just a threat to the right but to the foundation of enlightenment thinking(the enlightenment era thinking not the religious kind). It's also kinda weird to know about the terrorist stuff and hear them say things like "getting rid of the military" like it would be such a great idea.

  9. 1) People don't dislike Israel because of propaganda. When they "mow the lawn" and kill 80% civilians in missile strikes, that generally doesn't sit well with people. It's not to say Israel should be destroyed, but its billions of dollars of US aid should come with a caveat to try to limit their killings to Hamas.
    2) So, by this logic, will PragerU make a stand against the US's tentative alliance with Saudi Arabia? They fund Wahhabi mosques all over the world – the same radical form of Islam that the 9/11 terrorists followed, and is one of the most violent, extremist theocratic Sunni belief systems in the world. Not to mention we know the Kingdom funds ISIS, indicative from the US trucks and weapons ISIS is in possession of that we just so happened to sell to Saudi Arabia not a few months earlier. Additionally their government jailed the women responsible for protesting to get women the right to drive cars, they still behead people in the public square (something not even Qatar or Iran does) for witchcraft and sorcery, and they jail people for the possession of alcohol. For such an oppressive regime like Qatar to draw the ire of PragerU, will Saudi Arabia's barbaric government get the same? I highly doubt it

  10. But here's what Prager won't tell you. Why on earth would Qatar disseminate this nonsense, which really hurts progressives more than anyone else (to the point where, the further left on the spectrum you go, the more it becomes like Lord of the Flies)? Are we really to believe that Qatar is doing this to support leftist ideology (when the practical consequence of this craziness is to keep lefties at each others throats, and when the leadership in Qatar, as Prager does point out, is devoted to misogyny and theocracy)? Doesn't that seem self-defeating? Nope, it's really pretty easy to figure out. What is the source of Qatar's wealth? Who benefits if progressives (the main opponents of the fossil fuel industry) are mired in chaos, disunity, and disorganization? You don't need a Phd to figure it out.

    The real nightmare for Qatar (and other major oil producers, like Russia) would be a progressive environmentalist in the White House, who actually cares about women's rights, religious freedom, and so on. Conversely, Trump is their dream come true. While Trump shrouds his policies in anti-Islamic rhetoric, middle eastern oil magnates (the people who actually fund terrorism) are partying like it's 1999. And we see the same tendencies with other foreign news outlets, like RT.

  12. I was pretty surprised how few people understood that AJ+ was funded by them. Even if they are foreign propaganda we have freedom of the press/speech here in America, everyone including far leftest can say whatever they want, its up to other organizations such as Prager to be the counter balance.

  13. Oh And anything that weakens the US will in the end weaken those that trade a lot with the US or those that are allied to her in a military sense. And well this is something those in the EU might disagree with or parts of them might. But in the end europe need the US to stay strong. A strong stable US means a strong stable trade partner. Would they be the best one ever. Perhaps not but they would be damned better then china.

  19. I dont know if you know, but there are many muslims that support this point of view, I think you are forgetting the only real white muslims in the world who share this view in this video are from the multi cultural Bosnia, so, deep inside it hurts when i agree on most of these politics by the right but than they go against Islam as a whole. Muslims aren't all the same. Many middle eastern cultures are ran by yes their deep rooted culture, not religion and its not the same for the white European Muslims.

  20. Qatar breaks agreements with US. Qatar bought an Italian airline (now called Air Italia) to circumvent their agreement not to fly to the USA – the government subsidized airline agreed…so they bought a small Italian airline company, re-branded it, subsidize it and they fly the routes they agreed to not fly. The biggest problem with humans is corruption. If money is involved it turns people into zombies chasing the dollar bill. The entire planet is corrupt.

They helped lie us into Iraq, didn't they?? They were slant drilling into Iraq and saddam attacked them, right? That's what I'm remembering, now that I've thought about it a few days. Then they agreed to sell China oil for yen, instead of US currency, right? I'll learn their bias as I watch their content. They're not, radically pro Israel and don't deny climate change, that's nice.. lol

I think they were expecting me to embarrass myself (like Tim Scott), or make aggressive statements (like Tommy Robinson). They obviously didn't expect me to make sense. That's not journalism

  32. Yet more garbage from Prager. No citations on what extent or how Qatar funds AJ+. Assuming that they do receive funding from Qatar, you can't argue AJ+ is responsible or guilty of things Qatar does. If Someone as horrible as Jeff Epstein's donated to something farely inncoent like st. Jude's cancer research, does that make st. Jude's guilty by association? While AJ+ makes political pieces and has it biases, they don't demonize America. They do talk about issues in America but don't paint America to be this evil racist country. Criticism is not vilification. No citations or sources provided by Prager either. You can check AJ+ out and see for yourself. They are not what Prager paints them to be.

  33. Funny how we pay Qatar to host a military base. No, this is more of a video that is just attacking AJ+ because they are run by Arabs and we disagree with them. Hell, didn't Prager U have someone admit that it's okay to criticise Isreal's expansionism into the gaze strip? Wonder why there is violence in the Gaza strip when isreal pushes for more settlements?

  34. Thanks for the info; I hadn’t heard of AJ+, but just checked out some of their videos and wow were you right! Fortunately, based on the comments I read, most people are on to this, so they’ll probably collapse like their other attempts have… hopefully anyhow!

  36. I am from Chile , and AJ+ made a video depicting my country and the people living there as racist xenophopic assholes .
    The video made claims saying that many immigrants living in Chile have been murdered and are subject day to day violent discrimination.
    I know for a fact , what the video claim is absolutely false and exxagerated .
    I watch the news everyday in Chile and there has never been a reported murder of a immigrant in the hands of a Chilean national .
    The news mostly talks about femicides ( women getting killed by their formeror current boyfriends ) .
    Or prostests supporting causes which almost always erupt into riots .
    Anyway in the comments section of this AJ+ video someone posted a youtube video of a fight in the metro involving a group of black dominicans vs chilean locals.
    The fight broke out because some racist chilean old man decided to insult the black dominicans .
    The dominicans attacked the old man and kicked him in the face while he was on his knees . Passerbys stepped in to try to stop the fight but the dominicans wouldnt and they would continue to attack anyone who would step in and stop the fight .
    Anyway youd think this video would prove AJ+s point on how Chileans are racist right? Nope ,they decided to delete the comment on where that video was posted and continued to delete any comments where the video is posted . Why? Ill take the guess that seeing a video of a bunch of grown immigrant men beating up on a senior citizen and then indiscriminately attack anyone who tries to stop the fight . Doesnt help the narrative they are pushing .
    The truth is …there is discrimination but theres also acceptance .
    In Chile the locals love the colombians who have mass migrated to Chile in the past 5 years . But they hate the fact that now theres sicarios in Chile . In which there never were ever in Chile .
    Get it ?

  46. Shia is not Islam because Shia denounces the Alhussunah especially Alhussunah Wal Jamaah and denounces the Prophet Mohammed pbuh. Shia is protected by non Muslim countries like Iran and Qatar. Hezbollah means "the political party of Allah SWT" and that in itself is an affront-insult directed at Allah SWT because my Muslim friends emphasize that Allah SWT directly doesn't endorse worldly politics but Islamic parties are a tolerated execption-compromise. In short, there is no terror by Islam. It is terror committed by the Shia and its affiliates. Another thing: the Hadramaut mainly embrace Shia and Shia in itself is not Islam. The Hadramaut are not Arabs.
