An article posted today on Global Research features a couple screen grabs from the PropOrNot Twitter feed. Both celebrate the takedown of hundreds of social media accounts this week.
Notice the emojis. Cute touch, would’t you say?
I don’t believe for a second the anonymous group or individual behind PropOrNot actually believes Russia had anything to do with the social accounts in question. But it’s possible they may have fooled themselves into believing this. If they’re idiots.
I’m convinced PropOrNot is in some way linked to intelligence or its corporate appendages.
But here’s what’s interesting. The accounts disappeared were included in a Washington Post article in 2016. The Post collaborated with the mysterious (front operation) PropOrNot to blacklist popular and well-trafficked websites.
Before the election the elite had brainstormed ways to get rid of an alternative media that has dogged it at every turn, primarily after 9/11. The growth of anti-establishment websites expanded exponentially with the rise of social media and affordable full-featured web hosting.
The Clinton-DNC loss was immediately blamed on the Russia and its supposed nefarious connections to Putin and the Oligarchs. This soon evolved into a detailed and full-blown conspiracy theory despite its implausibility. The establishment media then turned it into a Big Lie. It was repeated over and over until it became an unarguable fact.
The manufactured hysteria was used to get Congress to investigate—with the intrepid Diane Feinstein leading the charge—and this added another layer of authentication. In true Mussolini fashion the corporate sector piled on. The Atlantic Council launched its Hamilton Dashboard and corporate news organizations began employing “fact-checkers” (almost exclusively with a liberal bias) to tell Americans what is fake and part of a large Russian scheme to destroy democracy.
History is replete with examples of the state covertly undermining and destroying organizations and individuals perceived as threats to its monopoly of power and violence. The accounts closed down by corporate social media on the heels of the takedown of Alex Jones were tagged for destruction a couple years ago. This is a highly coordinated effort that shares a parallel with the destruction of Occupy Wall Street and many other movements before it.
The phase following the sanitization of corporate social media will include efforts to pressure ISPs and providers into closing down accounts and denying service those included on a no-fly list for the internet. All of this will continue to build on the discredited and absurd Russian influence ruse until the mission is accomplished.
I realize millions of Americans understand the whole remarkably lame Russian influence campfire story is transparently bogus. But that doesn’t matter. Influential members of Congress believe it—or were told to believe it—and this will result in legislation and possibly even a confrontation with Russia.
