4th PSYOP Group Recruiting Video

Awesome.

If this gets traction, all the Wokes are going to mess their panties..

Probably not.. The context, scope, and segway from ole WWII PSYOPS into future Space operations is brilliant, but I fear also lost on the masses.

These damm PS-5, NINTENDO, & XBOX kids are getting Prime Time.

'Unsettling' Army Recruitment Video Ignites Debate over Its Mysterious Intent
16 May 2022, The Charlotte Observer, By Mark Price

It’s a stretch to link the U.S. Army to witchery, but that’s happening in response to an eerie recruitment video shared on YouTube by Fort Bragg’s 4th Psychological Operations Group-Airborne.

Titled “Ghosts in the Machine,” the video feels like a movie trailer and comes with no explanation other than: “All the world’s a stage. Join us.”

The video, posted May 2, starts innocently, with benign clips of cartoons and images of empty city streets and subways. But the vibe grows increasingly disturbing, with footage of a shadowy man, anxious stares at dark skies, violent riot scenes and soldiers being deployed.

PS: There is a WWII reference, see if you can spot it..

One of the comments feels like it might be relevant...

What I found interesting from the Military.com article, “Here’s the odd thing — clandestine Army units like this DON’T make recruiting material, because that material brings unwanted attention,” The Pipeline reported. “Have you ever seen an official Delta Force recruiting video? Exactly.” Uh, well yeah, I have actually seen an official Delta Force recruiting video. It was posted on there official UNCLAS recruiting website. You needed a CAC to access it but that was it. Delta Force is so secret that they send out recruiting emails to career soldiers and routinely send recruiters to every major post in the Army and put on presentations and answer questions.

Personally I think the video is very slick and well produced. I had a young PSYOPS NCO tell me one time, "I love PYSOPS. I actually get to use my marketing degree, jump out of airplanes, and do other cool stuff." The operative part of that statement is "use my marketing degree".

As a side note - Koko the clown was known to stutter and uses the short form contraction of the phrase, "come on"

Koko the Clown: "The poor...H...H...Herring shot?" (The Herring Murder Case)

Koko the Clown: "I...g...g...gotta get Bimbo the detective." (The Herring Murder Case)

Koko the Clown: "C'mon help!" (The Herring Murder Case)
