Public Hate Fests and Propaganda Proliferate Through Social Media! in the USA

Tweet This

I don't ususally comment on national issues but this national issue is just as strong in Maine as it is nationally- it is the new speech regulation climate and the occurence of social media directed hate fests against specific people which intentionally spread dis-information- in part relying on the fact that many people will only read a headline and do not click on the article supporting the headline- that makes spreading dis-information incredibly easy !

Take for example this story currently proliferated on FaceBook with a head line telling us that Jeb Bush "attacked" Fox News

Notice that the story in this link is based 100% on hear say but published on a website called "Truth Revolt", Sadly "Truth Revolt"  is a project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center - a once respected name. It seems to be a pattern that organizations using the name of respected luminaries do not live up to their namesakes. There is not an ounce of what can constitute truth in the story. No video of Bush speaking- no direct quotes- a link to a CNN news source also without direct quotes or video ! Just 100% spin based in an unidentified words spoken by Jeb Bush. The people putting this out probably know that most will not click on the link to find out that is what it is- they will just absorb the disinformation as fact !

The article states that  Bush "expressed annoyance". Your guess is as good as any one's on what words he said to qualify the description because the article isn't telling you ! The article says Jeb Bush said he listens to Fox News- that was enough to spin Jeb Bush as "attacking Fox News" and for that headline to be distributed via social media as part of hate fest against Jeb Bush being conducted by the far right- supposedly the only conservative faction that operates out of principal. Exactly what kind of principal is that- one that perpetuates a characterization of a man based on nothing but unsourced hear say?

And what did Bush "express annoyance" about? Today's political climate " I have much stronger words than "annoyance" to describe today's political climate- one of targeted hate against certain individuals based on nothing but hear say and intended to instruct their followers not to listen to anything that their targeted victims say ! This is straight out of nazi Germany or a science fiction novel ! Public hate fests based on hear say and propaganda! And speech regulation to boot- Don't you dare criticize our tactics or we will conduct a hear say attack on you !

Bush said this before he announced his candidacy- so he knows the climate- he knows he is a target of that hate fests, and he still runs to serve his country! Bravo for his bravery !

After notes.

This is one of the latest campaigns being run by Donald Trump Supporters:
Bush and Rubio have shown that They are Bought and Sold Merchandice.....Has Walker also Demanded Trump Be Withdrawn???
Gee, more hate for The Donald from the Left AND the Right. If donors are asking Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker to boycott the debates if Trump is

Notice the statement is made that Bush and Rubio are bought and sold merchandise even though the unverified claims upon which these charges are based do not even make the claim that Bush and Rubio responded in any way to alleged demands from donors.  The "news story" being used to verify this claim isn't even a news story. At best you can call it rumor with a strong appearance of  pure fabrication.

This is what you see when you click the link: (annotated) 

Gee, more hate for The Donald from the Left AND the Right.( the claim- which is not substantiated is that Republican donors are making allegated demand- so how does the Trump base tie in the left on this one?- no need to say !) 

If donors are asking Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker to boycott the debates if Trump is allowed in, then I would be very, very leery of those candidates. (That's a big IF coming from an unidentified source, constituting a completely unverified story- but what difference does it make if its verified or not?) 

Jeb Bush is the RINO du jour of the ruling class. (Rino has become a meaningless political term used primarily by the far right to mean anyone that disagrees with their politically correct doctrine !- Ruling Class? when used by the far right, -code for "establishment" or "main stream" who are not following the far right's politically correct dictates. The far right positions itself as being more principled than the majority which encompassing the electorate and the 'establishment"). 

Marco Rubio is a tool of the establishment and changes his position to favor whichever way the political winds blow. ( The far right routinely invents this sort of statements which they arbitrarily apply to anyone whose strings they cannot pull- once again never a need to substantiate any of it- just repeat it !)

Scott Walker sounds good and has a proven record for bashing unions, but he has a guy on his team that hates true conservatives. (This one is a gem- Walker has on guy on his team - unidentified- that hates "true conservatives"- a term I have been using of late to identify that far right which has deemed itself the only principled people in the political landscape and the totalitarian adjudicators of who is a conservative and who is not- transforming the term "conservative" into as meaningless a label as "Rino: . This statement shows that the "true conservatives" are now brewing up a hate fest against Walker- on the flimsiest of evidence that Walker has one unidentified man who is battling their own mind games- Watch this one coming !)

Then you have Donald Trump, who has played both sides of the fence, but is currently addressing what the people want dealt with and isn’t afraid to do so. That is winning the hearts and minds of mainstream America. If he is boycotted, (setting this story line up in advance !) you will guarantee a third party and the Republicans will be finished. Careful what you wish for.( Priceless- Donald Trump -a 1%er -  is winning the minds and hearts of "mainstream America'- this is the closing that starts out saying the right AND the left are indicted in the far right's unverified claims about Republican donors? Has it not yet occurred to them that the left side of "main stream America targets the  1%? -Just as the far right is targeting the entire Republican establishment- meaning any Republican with experience in government" . The left  packages anyone who is a 1% as corrupt !"  The far right packages any Republican with an experience in government as corrupt ! 

Note also the common practice in which the far right while targeting the establishment- which generally encompasses a majority world view- takes the position that it represents "main stream Americans". The far right often frames its views as the voice of a collective "we" rather than as the voice of individual opinions.

A diary of responses:
  • Gerald Kimmel Most liberals are annoyed by Fox News because they bring out the truth.

    • Mackenzie Andersen However you have hit on the subliminal message of this propaganda. It is supposed to associate Jeb Bush with Obama in the way that Obama attacks Fox News. It's at odds with another message being deliverd by this mind control collective- that we should reject Bush because he comes from a line of those who have served their country as president- If we are to reject Bush via associating him with his family name- the Bush's never went after the press- in fact George W Bush was criticized for not doing so - some thought he should have fought back but that is not the way the Bush's see it, a family who I would say have a gentle man's code. They conduct themselves in and post office with respect for the office itself.

      So the propaganda can't have it both ways- reject Jeb Bush because he is a Bush- and invent a story that Jeb Bush attacked Fox News so that he can be likened to Obama- if you are going to associate him with being a Bush then this invented story looks all the more ludicrous. The Bush family has a tradition of public conduct which does not include going after the press.

Why are social impact investors trying so hard to defeat smaller shelters for the homeless?

  "Social Impact” developers in Portland, Maine seek to squelch a referendum for smaller shelters called for by qualified practitioners with concrete experience in the field.

Currently, mutually benefitting factions are coming together once again in hopes of building a mega-shelter for the homeless in a Portland, Maine industrial development district.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory .

Tweet This: Government As a Secret Society The response to my informal suggestion that public accessibility to government could be improved by making information available in a searchable data base ( see previous post) subjectively confirmed that the  functioning power elite of Maine's economic development programs and policies are both intentional in instituting a political ideology that supersedes the will of the people, as expressed in the Maine State Constitution, and deceptive towards the general public. 1.Information made available on an agency website but not in a searchable database format may not provide the research and investigative tool needed by the public.
