They’re late this time, the cries of “this is BS” but it seems many have waited, thought and then posted.
I’ve two pieces to add to it. First is this one doing the rounds [also mentioned by John in Cheshire] and different versions alter some of the words to make it seem as if it is from that pundit. Here is one version:
The other piece is from Wired:
It leans on the side of gun control but goes into how the semi can be automated.
OK, my angle on this is not to go in-depth on the anomalies of this incident itself, but rather note that the same modus operandi has occurred in all the major incidents from November 22nd, 1963 onwards. Whether it was JFK, RFK, Reagan, 911, Sandy Hook, whatever – even Obama’s birth certificate – it plays out the same way.
Sooner or later, someone sees the anomalies. Sometimes no one does immediately so information is leaked to make sure it’s noticed. In the case of the birth certificate, the conspiracists reached an impasse so what did Obama’s minders do? They released another which to experts, was clearly tampered with and as night follows day, Snopes tried to say it was not so, followed by the Colonel Harrumphs.
The Colonel Harrumphs are of two kinds:
1. Those in on the scam and who come the plausible, let’s all be sane here narrative, very much in line with the way we all write, pundit, reader and commenter, such that it’s very difficult to nail that this is a troll.
2. Those who really are Colonel Harrumphs who have not done the copious reading they needed to or at least have read the same sources every time. Sometimes they’re actually right because of native wit, common sense, which cuts through all the BS on the conspiracist side.
The bottom line is that the whole MSM and online community is played like violins. And those playing the violins are creasing themselves with laughter, as if they’d done something clever. My support for this is CREEP during Nixon and Watergate, where people like Donald Segretti thought it all an enormous hoot what went wrong with the Dems.
What’s the strategic purpose? Plain as day – to unsettle and demoralize the community, it’s a military ploy, sometimes called psy-ops but it’s also the corruption of all forms of media, primarily by lies but also by disinformation seeming to be kosher and through kosher sources.
It’s the necessity of telling lies over every single incident or to create incidents over which to tell lies, which Deplorable forces then have to waste time and column inches unravelling. A steady stream every few weeks to keep everyone occupied.
Naturally, to mention Woodrow Wilson’s warning again, these people behind it, be it the CIA, its antecedents or whoever, are savages, with minds which see the sacrifice of 60 humans as not an issue in order to keep making a point. The point here is to disarm people so that they cannot defend themselves, to render them incapable of getting their act together to resist and even if they could – to demonstrate the impossibility of doing it, to snuff out hope.
These are by no means wild allegations – you only need look at Fast and Furious with Holder and Obama to see the reckless unconcern for the lives of humans, you only need look at Vietnam and Abu Ghraib.
