Internet Rife With Disinformation
• “Cyber shills” working to misdirect, embarrass legitimate conspiracy researchers
BEHIND THE SCENES
By Michael Collins
.Evidence suggests patriots and truth-seekers are being subjected to insidious means of mind control — and crowd control — through a covert campaign now being orchestrated across the Internet.
Consider this: Right after 9-11, AFP correspondent Victor Thorn demonstrated that the U.S. government version of what happened to United Flight 93 on 9-11 was an absolute lie, and that the plane was deliberately shot down by the government.
Yet, today, there is an ongoing push to flood the Internet and independent media with a never-before-seen genre of thought that holds, essentially, that nothing reported in the establishment press is “for real” — that every traumatic event is, to one degree or another, a big hoax.
Here’s the problem: Had this mindset held sway after 9-11, it would have been alleged there never even was a United Flight 93, that it neither crashed nor was shot down and that those who died on the plane never existed and that their survivors (and some of the witnesses interviewed by Thorn) were paid actors — referred to as “crisis actors” in this new genre — deployed to misdirect honest investigators.
The Internet would have been rife with accusations that Thorn’s revelations were actually part of the cover-up and, as a consequence, many good folks might have doubted AFP’s credibility.
Fortunately, most people see through such nonsense. However, this new “meme” (that nothing is real) is catching hold among many who don’t realize that ongoing efforts to impose this worldview — almost a cult-like ideology — on truth seekers is a very real conspiracy designed to undermine diligent reporting of the type seen in AFP.
Unfortunately,many are falling into this carefully crafted trap. A bevy of disinformation specialists known as “cyber shills” — along with amateur keyboard detectives caught up in the frenzy — are bombarding patriots with all manner of outlandish “analysis” of photographs and videos, purporting to “prove” some point that is invariably a total distraction from the real facts that should be unveiled.
This does harm to the serious efforts of those who are trying to expose the very real conspiracies and cover-ups surrounding 9-11, the Oklahoma City bombing, the JFK assassination, the Boston bombing and so many matters hidden behind the media monopoly’s iron curtain of censorship.
Note: AFP is here to tell readers that there’s more to the story of shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and at the Washington Navy Yard and to the Boston Marathon bombing than many of the Internet sensationalists are telling you.
In truth, many still do not understand the big secret about Sandy Hook: In the face of the predictable media push for gun control following that tragedy, there was an obvious conspiracy by Internet provocateurs to misdirect patriots into thinking they were fighting gun control by repeating stories that “no children died” when, in fact, such claims made Second Amendment advocates look ridiculous.
Serious-minded Second Amendment advocates were arguing, of course, that guns in the hands of teachers and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary could have saved the lives of those who were massacred.
On April 28 — at website newswithviews.com — respected patriot Devvy Kidd put it in perspective:
Over the past nearly two decades, every time some horrific “event” happens, wannabe “journalists” come out of the woodwork with their conspiracy theories based on absolutely nothing; bloggers who specialize in no facts, just rank speculation. [These are] irresponsible people out to make a name for themselves or to get people to their websites. They have zero credibility and hurt the rest of us by being lumped together [with us]. I have debunked conspiracy theories in the past based on documentation. I get attacked as if I’m the bad guy for pursuing the truth. There are conspiracies and cover-ups, but we want the truth, not speculation.
For years, AFP has been smeared for publishing what critics call “conspiracy theories,” which are, in fact, truthful reporting of high-level misdeeds. Those trying to discredit revelations about the real conspiracies do all they can to make AFP and others who expose those conspiracies and the truth about mind control appear to be “nut jobs.”
That’s why, in 2008, University of Chicago law professor Cass Sunstein — a Barack Obama crony — issued a formal crisis management paper on “conspiracy theories,” outlining a proposed program of what he called “cognitive infiltration” to discredit such theories, particularly those implicating Israel in 9-11.
And while such “Judas goat” operations have been going on for years, involving, for example, the FBI’s infamous ADL-assisted COINTELPRO — targeting the Ku Klux Klan, the National States Rights Party, the Minutemen and other dissidents — we know of one current Internet-focused scheme exposed by Thorn in AFP. Reporting that the Israeli government pays young Israelis $2,000 a month to troll the Internet and spread disinformation, Thorn noted that this connivance is well coordinated:
Participants are provided with specific scripts to use on enemies, complete with details involving sensationalized accusations against enemies, divide-and-conquer strategies where one individual is pitted against another, plus a variety of distraction techniques and the marginalization of opinions that differ from the official Jewish party line. Other tactics include denying inconvenient facts, refusing dialogue by sending conversations off into absurd directions, or dishonestly manipulating sources to entrap a foe.
Programmed to capture the imagination of sincere truth seekers, these manipulations — aimed at a receptive “captive audience” — are intrigues designed, as Thorn noted, to not only redirect debate by countering conspiracy theories but also by inserting ridiculous disinformation into the debate.
This further discredits any and all conspiracy theories — which happens to be the ultimate purpose of this multi-faceted effort.
Implementing Sunstein’s treacherous mind-control agenda, crisis management experts recognized that Internet-active truth seekers constitute a “crowd” as defined by Gustave LeBon’s sinister study — The Crowd — a legendary work described as having “exerted a powerful influence upon the thought of men aiming to understand the workings of collective behavior and of social psychology.”
Remembering what LeBon said — “To know the art of impressing the imagination of crowds is to know at the same time the art of governing them” — Sunstein set in motion an Orwellian framework for both mind control and crowd control all too visible on the Internet today.
AFP pledges to ignore their disinformation and focus on the big picture and continue to confront the real issues with facts, not speculation.
