A Voat member by the name of “Redditsdead” is trying to stir up things.
Yesterday, he/she attempted to kick start a new subverse called “mediafalseflags,” and though his effort appears to have been in vain (after one day of reckoning), he immediately followed up his new subverse concept with another post in the larger, more popular (by Voat standards) “conspiracy” subverse.
Here he was met by a more “vast” readership and more constructive feedback.
The Voat verdict seemed to be “good idea, but no; use the Conspiracy subverse for false flag conjecture of all types.”
But no need to despair. The Voat moderators, in a fit of fantastic grace, are now redirecting Redditisdead’s original “mediafalseflag” post back to his new subverse!
This is great news. Voat’s administrators are essentially disqualifying popular opinion and letting the new subverse fail or prosper on its own merits. Voat has billed itself as the bastion of “free expression” in the wake of Reddit’s SJW destruction of recent months, and this is a good step in the right direction toward justifying this boast.
The concept of a media false flag is very intriguing.
In fact, the concept of false flags is quite intriguing.
The act of disguising yourself as the enemy in order to provoke a response you can strategically manipulate to further your own aims is the height of utter deviousness. It embodies the very groundwork upon which every man and woman in this society sinks to in order to get a leg up on the competition. The false flag principle embodies duplicitous human nature and points out the depths we will go to claim victory and ascendance.
This great piece outlines the history of the false flag operation back to its origins.
The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy’s flag, instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, was hung, it was called a “false flag” attack.
Indeed, this concept is so well-accepted that rules of engagement for naval, air and land warfare all prohibit false flag attacks.
More provocative is the Wikipedia observation which states, in reference to false flag operations (and I’m placing a word in bold that will segue to my next point):
“False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities.”
Corporations, the great burgeoning entities of our neo-fascist state. The collusion and meshing of corporation and government in the 21st Century, especially in the wake of the digitization of life, is rapidly approaching a crescendo of vile cooperation.
Our large news organizations have become the mouthpieces of the fascist American state, the corporacracy. CNN, MSNBC, Fox…these are PR extensions of Washington D.C.’s voice and dicta. In one form or another, everything they report is cleared through a long chain of approvals and corporate/governmental nods. Nothing gets through that editorial sieve unless its vetted by the intractable process that’s been erected by all the key players who are entrusted with perpetuating and caring for the welfare of the information chain that is dutifully designed to feed ignorant MSM consumers. Because of the role that the MSM plays as the “face” of our deeper, malevolent governmental agendas and intrusions, they are the ones we must pay attention to the most.
This is why I feel the concept of mediafalseflags subverse is very important and why I believe it must be fueled by the watchful eyes of a keen populace who trusts nothing the government (ie, CNN) announces as truth or journalism.
Only by scrutinizing the mouthpieces of the elites can we anticipate their crooked maneuvers.
In the spirit of mediafalseflags, I thought it would be great idea to put my OCD categorization tools to work. It’s easy to say “A” is a cover (flag) for “B” and postulate endlessly as such, but it’s only guesswork lacking grounded credulity without the hard categorical chores.
Only in patterns and predictability can a “method” be applied to media false flags…and if it involves patterns, I’m your man.
It struck me that this project is useless without evidence, and evidence must be factual and replicable. To this goal, I will begin compiling a database of news stories that are further deconstructed by increasing levels of specificity that will allow me to design an amalgam of disparate data retrieved during the collection of said news items.
A conglomeration of stories/events ranked by order according to collective levels of dire measurement across humanity. A “tree” structure, if you will, ie, Hillary’s email story would represent a larger branch due to its scope and effect on current and future events, whereas the Mueller rape story, while awful, is insignificant in that it’s done and lacks ongoing relevancy. We know ISIS are not saints, but we also know sadly that Kayla Mueller is dead; there is nothing to be gleaned from it other than sentimentality and unarguable consternation.
For now, my data will comprise:
*date story first reported
*news organizations reporting
*subsequent reports and clarifications
I will begin to design and structure a format that presents the data in a way that allows us to discern patterns, causal extensions and correlations.
It will be madness, but that fits me.
