While the Left was spinning conspiracy theories about conservatives and Russian trolls on social media, its own social feeds were filled with Iranian and Qatari propaganda showing a Pallywood production of “starving children” in Yemen caused by the Saudi campaign against Iran’s Houthi Jihadis.
The Iranian-Qatari propaganda has been so successful that even a number of Republicans voted for a Qatari Senate resolution targeting the Saudis and backing Qatar, and by extension, Iran.
But the media has been the greatest vector for propaganda on behalf of the Iranian terror campaign in Yemen.
Take the latest Washington Post report on the “famine” in Yemen. Much like the “famine” in Gaza, this is a cynical bid by an Islamic terror group to manufacture a human rights crisis to stop a more powerful adversary from defeating it.
