How To Fight The Establishment Propaganda Machine And Win

https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/h...n-449f94e1d40b

The elites who manipulate your government are more vulnerable now than ever before and they know it ó the solution just isnít in politics, itís in media. What Americans lack in voting power, they make up for in the fact that their ability to network and share information has reached completely unprecedented heights, which means that the old propaganda systems which have been used to lull Americans into accepting the establishment narrative are wielding less and less influence. The internet has the potential to initiate a total shift in public perspective.





<<<<snippets>>>>

In order to wrest power from the oligarchs and give it to the American people, mainstream America is going to have to start waking up to the fact that their government is lying to them with the help of the corporate media, and that they do not live in the kind of country that their teachers taught them they live in. This is not an insurmountable goal. Gallup reports that trust in the mass media is already at an all-time low for mainstream America, and thatís only going to get worse as we keep attacking it.

So we know theyíre using media psy-ops on the American public, and we know psy-ops need to be done constantly, during both peacetime and wartime, on the election season and off, in order to be effective. America is a corporatist system of government, its mass media is owned by a mere five corporations, and the CIA has been deeply embedded within the mass media for decades. The US government and its plutocrat owners did not make it legal to use psy-ops on American citizens for shits and giggles, they did it because they use psy-ops on American citizens. This is really happening. This is not paranoia. These are facts.


Itís normal that all these politicians seem to do pretty much the same things once elected despite campaigning on very different platforms. Itís normal for elected officials to lie. Itís normal for your government to have the ability to spy on you. This is all normal.

We need to snap mainstream America out of this lullaby of normalcy. We need to be the caring friend who tells them that itís not normal for their boyfriend to be violent and controlling. We need to keep coming up with new and innovative ways to let everyone know that none of this is normal and it needs to stop. That is always our ultimate goal, because without the spell of normalcy, the whole thing falls apart.

Mainstream America is still not yet aware that democracy is not happening in America, so the more facts we can amass to show them the better, and the more noise we make about it the more of them weíll wake up.

Keep attacking the New York Times for its special role in selling America the lies that led to the Iraq invasion and the Washington Post for constantly reporting on the intelligence community without ever disclosing the fact that its owner has received hundreds of millions of dollars from the CIA.
Always be attacking; put them on the defense. Keep advancing causes that make them uncomfortable and ideas they have to defend against. Force them into situations where they need to do things like come up with ridiculous explanations for why Assad would gas his own people at the worst possible time when he stood nothing to gain from it and everything to lose. Make them look stupid. The more stupid they look, the more openings theyíll create for further attacks.

The anti-establishment lefties donít have the numbers to do this on their own, nor do the anarchists, nor do any of the factions on the anti-establishment right, and you may be certain that as soon as we get the propaganda beast up against the ropes it will immediately start doubling down on its tried-and-true tactic of divide and conquer. It will do everything it can to try and wedge us apart and turn us against each other, so weíll stop fighting the real enemy.

This is how the CIA manipulates the MSM to fit their agenda. They want to get the left riled up to give the anti-Trump movement more steam so they put out the fake news story. The left really hates Pence.

Wow, the NYT's has gone off the tracks. Anyone that still believes this MSM BS has to be completely delusional.

Has The NYT Gone Collectively Mad?
