As “our free press” ramps up its loyal service as Big Pharma’s Ministry of Truth, it’s doing an ever cruder version of the Propaganda Two-Step, which you perform by pumping out Big Lies non-stop, while also blacking out and/or defaming anyone who dares to contradict or question them.

 

We have an excellent example of the latter tactic in this wad of excrement from Buzzfeed, hurled at six “spin doctors” (i.e., dissident physicians), two “5G conspiracy theorists,” and two of “the misquoted” (two doctors whom Buzzfeed’s minions couldn’t find a way to tar outright).

 

What makes it such a good example is the blatancy of its key features. Note, first, that it does not even address, much less refute, any of the information offered, and/or arguments presented, by the heretics. Instead of actually rebutting what they’ve said or written, this hit-piece (along with countless others) smears the heretics themselves, with mere insulting epithets and vicious mockery.

 

Such propaganda must rely primarily on slander and derision, because what those dissidents have said, about COVID-19 and/or 5G, is either true or highly plausible—which means that the Official Narratives in question are untenable. This is why such hit-pieces are so nakedly authoritarian, “debunking” its targets just by telling us “what the authorities have said.”

 

Thus this piece baldly tells its readers what to think (or, rather, what to feel, since there’s no thought involved), and how to serve as individual vectors of the propaganda; and so it isn’t just a catalogue of smears, concocted to discourage anyone from looking into what those targeted have had to say. It also functions as a sort of script, providing Buzzfeed’s followers with ammo to be used on “social media,” and/or in fights with any infidels among their friends or family.

 

Although the number, unanimity and virulence of such attacks is something new (and grounds for seeing it as a sign of desperation), the basic strategy is over half-a-century old, as it was the CIA that first weaponized the epithet “conspiracy theorist” back in 1967, in its memo #1035-960, sent out to CIA station chiefs worldwide to enlist their help in smearing critics of the Warren Report, not just by calling them “conspiracy theorists,” but also by deploying one or more of several (what we would call) talking points against them.

 

What we’re seeing today is a streamlining of that process. Whereas, back then, the CIA encouraged its media assets to defame those questioning the Official Narrative (of JFK’s assassination), so that readers would then doubt the honesty or sanity of those dissenters. Today, the culture having largely moved online, the propaganda aims directly at its audience, inviting them to spread its toxin all throughout the tissues of the nation, by parroting the memes of the Official Narrative (of COVID-19, 5G, vaccination and whatever else the powers behind the propaganda want the rest of us swallow).

 

Here, for your convenience and enlightenment, is a list of dissidents re: COVID-19, its origins, and/or the policies and practices now being used to “cure” it. This is just a start on such a list of medical professionals. Nor do I necessarily agree with everything those listed here have either said or written—but they have every right to speak their piece, and those of us who care to know what’s really going should give them a fair hearing, and think about it for ourselves.
