"Firehose of Falsehood" Propaganda Model

I just found this link posted by a friend of a friend in the UK.

I see similarities to this article and the progressive politics & MSM in North America.

The Russian "Firehose of Falsehood" Propaganda Model

Why It Might Work and Options to Counter It

by Christopher Paul, Miriam Matthews

We characterize the contemporary Russian model for propaganda as “the firehose of falsehood” because of two of its distinctive features: high numbers of channels and messages and a shameless willingness to disseminate partial truths or outright fictions. In the words of one observer, “[N]ew Russian propaganda entertains, confuses and overwhelms the audience.”2

Contemporary Russian propaganda has at least two other distinctive features. It is also rapid, continuous, and repetitive, and it lacks commitment to consistency.

Distinctive Features of the Contemporary Model for Russian Propaganda
  • High-volume and multichannel
  • Rapid, continuous, and repetitive
  • Lacks commitment to objective reality
  • Lacks commitment to consistency.

Ron Klain’s Domestic Motive for Ukraine Crisis Surfaces – White House to Blame Economic Collapse, Gas Prices and Inflation on Manufactured Russia-Ukraine Conflict

The manufactured Russia-Ukraine crisis now becomes the cover story for why the U.S. economy is collapsing. The pain being felt by middle class, blue-collar workers is now shifted to be an outcome of geopolitical events that are Vladimir Putin’s fault. It’s always someone else’s fault.

A most un-ambiguous example..
Thank You..

The manufactured crisis in Ukraine then takes on a geopolitical angle and a domestic angle.

The prior rate of inflation is now being blamed on Russia-Ukraine.

It is not coincidental that ABC (think George Stephanopolous) takes the lead in helping to push this narrative as a cover story for the problems in the economy that are specifically driven by U.S. energy policy (chasing Green New Deal objectives), environmental policy, regulatory policy and massive spending.

The politics are to blame for the inflation, so it is the deployment of politics used to create the cover.

And then there is our fearless leader running amuck declaring "Emergency, Emergency! The Russians are coming! Everybody to get from street."

Then at the last minute, a meeting with Putin, who then moves his forces from their attack positions. All just prior to the State of the Union, Der fearless leader appears strong and decisive. He can now rehabilitate his tarnished image from the Astan surrender.

It's all propaganda and staged theater!

This is all so patently transparent. You don’t need to be an 18F from 10th Group who’s focus is Eastern Europe to see it. The only real issue here is the A-Me-rican people who have the memory of a fruit fly and are more worried about MLB Spring Training or Tom Brady retiring from sports ball.

Hell, even my 65 y/o mother in central Illinois can figure it out……

If this slide to hell isn’t stopped soon, the heat will start to burn the good people along with the evil puppet masters…..

I just cannot fathom the ego it takes to green light a stunt like this. On the other hand they did the same thing for Commander Zero so it is no surprise.

All your bases are become us.

I think Putin has taken the measure of our feckless POTUS, and found him lacking.

And Russia has learned much from us.

Ah,, did Putin fool Bramdon?

The ruse to invade,, fades to recognizing what he really wanted,,

Putin recognizes breakaway territories in eastern Ukraine, Without a fight..

“Ukraine has never had traditions of its own statehood,” Putin said, calling the eastern part of the country “ancient Russian lands.”


Putin gets the WIN with little bloodshed

Not sure if this belongs in this forum but here goes.... (Team Sgt. be kind please

Watching Fox News last night, the host described a video they had that showed dead bodies on the ground. They would not show this on national tv of course because it was "Too Graphic!"

I can think of no other reason to wake up a populace better than showing them the realities of war. During WWII the government censored battle footage from the newsreel's until Tarawa (?) or another ferocious battle in the Pacific which showed dead Marines floating in the tide on the beach. This turned the American people on their heads and stopped the pussified pacifists from screaming we shouldn't be in the war.
So here's my question; is my train of thought reality in believing that the government prevents the major channels from broadcasting these images or do they do this because they're scared of the government and the pussies in the administration?

Gives one pause, given that Claire Wolfe said that over 20 years ago. Where are we at again sir?

Soro's is a uber wealthy master manipulator who owns and/or has leverage over many people.

As a person with more money than sense I have had dealing with told me..... everyone has a price. From game tickets, a trip to Augusta to play a round with well known British Open winner, putting in the good word with a Judge for your POS son, to getting an appointment with that cancer specialist that wasn't taking new patients it all came with strings attached.

You can have a brand new BMW sitting in your driveway tomorrow and all it takes is to sell your soul to me.
