In case you have not realized it yet, there are those on social media who have made a career out of being an activist for one cause or another. It is also possible that they are paid to manipulate you too.
Then some trolls will take whatever side they need to, just to stir the pot. We have seen this in a recent protest where hired protestors went to stir up the rest, whipping them into a frenzy, turning them into a violent mob.
No matter what happens in the world, some “person” will say something audacious to get a reaction. They do this for various reasons. Some people are so narcissistic they do this just to get more followers. Some do it for much more deviant reasons. Either way, you are being manipulated by these people. They do it to push an agenda.
Case in point: Every time someone kills someone with a gun people scream for more gun laws. If the laws on the books are not working what would more of them accomplish? Criminals don’t obey laws so more will not affect them. Law abiding people obey laws!
Anyone with a brain knows that we need fewer criminals, not fewer guns. Yet the people with an agenda will scream at the NRA or Trump supporters so they can further drive a wedge into the fabric of the USA.
If you respond in any way, you become manipulated and could become part of the problem.
Try this. Find some of the most ridiculous tweets out there that just spew hatred. Then look at their bio if they even have one, and then look at their tweets. You will find that they have lots of followers and their tweets appeal to one group or another. Further investigation will show that they are spewing out ignorant bigoted hate. If they are white, they will be saying things that stir up white folks against any other race. If they are black, the same thing, grouping all whites into the alt-right evil category.
You will also see trolls who get on sites and interject racial “alt-right or alt left” things that no sane person would say. That tarnishes the entire assembly as many who read it will cluster the whole race into that one crowd. They do it on purpose to stir up the vitriolic rhetoric, and to push racial division. They also do it as a form of anarchy.
The racial split in the US is at an all-time high, and there are those that want it to be that way. There are groups of elites who need the “herd” divided at all cost. It makes no difference who gets hurt or who gets killed. When a city gets burned down, it is excellent for them. World news will cover it, and they get to push an agenda based on hate of one race for another, which is not true. The story was fabricated for the sake of anarchy by the gods.
If they can motivate action by appealing to your emotions, they are ok with the consequences because the ends justify the means. If a few people get killed, it is ok because that stirs the emotions even further. The death of few cops even better, because now, more people will hear about it and, more will become emotionally invested, thus pissed!
A logical debate will usually conclude with logical sane decisions. Emotional chaos usually ends in war. Diplomacy vs the sword.
They need the masses or “herd” divided because if we all truly united, we would see the enemy for who they truly are. No, the gods have the masses killing one another, but the Elites or gods (little g) or to use a metaphor, The Great and powerful OZ is pleased. This is anarchy, which is what they are pushing. Trying to destroy the US from the inside out. This is not only limited to the US but also to the rest of the “civilized world.”
If the governments of individual countries become feckless, then the stage is set for another more powerful government. It starts with destroying the fabric of a country, and that starts with its history or heritage. Any of that sound familiar?
They use emotions in the form of greed and hate to destroy a country from the inside out.
When you respond to hate, you are doing their bidding. Ignoring vile rhetoric is your best bet. It is a lie and untrue. The masses do not think the way that the gods would like you to believe they do.
Today in Turkey many lost their lives in a terrorist attack on a mosque. Much like the church shooting in Texas, this is reprehensible. People will twist this story to play on the emotions of the herd. If you are not agonizing in a very public way, you are an Islamophobe. If you are distraught in an open way, you are an ISIS sympathizer. Which is all bullshit! “People” were killed needlessly and viciously, which pushes an agenda of the evil in this world. This event will be used for propaganda by evil people.
One young lady with thousands of followers, turned the argument, making it a black vs. white thing here in the US. She is motivating blacks in this country who are outraged by the atrocity in turkey to refocus their hate against whites in this country. Her tweets are vile, evil, hateful, rhetoric that appeals to many who follow her and retweet her.
It is illegal to incite violence, so one has to wonder why this hate speech is tolerated? Why doesn’t twitter block her account?
I doubt that this young lady exists at all. I would not at all be surprised to find that this is an account created by some Russian or another operative in another country maybe even North Korea, to continue to sow the seeds of hate and discontent. The sentences strung together incorrectly, make me believe this as well.
Another trending subject is President Obama’s daughter smoking pot in college. The conversation turned political by design, attacking the GOP for hating on his kid while simultaneously calling her behavior normal. Translated, they are assigning the hate to older white Americans which of course is again bullshit.
What did the GOP have to do with it? Nothing but it did not stop the vile tweets. The facts don’t matter!
Where is she going to school? What state is it? Is pot legal there? Is she breaking the law?
When you are the president of the US, you and your family are now examples to the world. That is the argument that they should have been having, not that she is “normal.” Define normal…
If you, in fact, use illegal drugs, you have blood on your hands. Many unlawful activities must happen to get that drug to your supplier. People die in masse regularly because of the drug trade. If there were no demand, this would not be an issue. In this instance, Malia may very well be part of the problem.
(I found pictures but they were too disturbing to post.)
While the fruit does not fall far from the tree, as President Obama himself smoked pot, nobody should be surprised, or care frankly. None of us are perfect, and she has probably lived a life that she would not have chosen, much like being the child of a preacher. Just possibly she should choose her friends more carefully as she apparently has one that thinks tweeting out a picture of her smoking pot, will gain her some followers thus making her more famous. Narcissistic much?
Drugs kill brain cells. As long as you know that, and are of legal age; enjoy your altered reality. Before you do that however just possibly you should visit a “memory care” facility, for folks with dementia. When you see what your future holds if you keep on that path, just possibly you might re-think being “normal.”
An Author who I enjoyed (Terry Pratchett) died of assisted suicide because he had early onset Alzheimer’s and did not want to go that way. Did he do drugs? Who knows… Do drugs screw with your brain indeed your physical health; yes!
Our idols are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. We are not perfect. When I was young, I admired many old film stars. Now, not so much. While iconic figures often grace the flat panel in my living room, I see them as flawed humans who possess the ability to read a script, regurgitate that text from writers like myself, and emote. Nothing more.
They, on the other hand, see themselves quite differently. To most of them they are gods and we the little people are insects. We must pay homage to the gods of the silver screen or DC, pick you diety.
When you strip away the veneer of celebrity status, race, and economic status, quickly you will realize that they are no better than you. In fact, the many that I know are somewhat narcissistic and can be slightly vapid when it comes to actual personality. That comes with being full of yourself.
So many are in the herd are sycophants of these gods and would put up with much just to be around them. Some “stars” tweet things as they are activist and realize that their celebrity status garners them the admiration of the masses, the little people or insects. Trust me; you are either a god or an insect to them. Not all but most only care about your vote if they are a politician, or your patronage if you are moviegoer or a fan of their music or brand. Of course, they also need your adulation and worship to feed their ever-growing ego.
The antagonist or anarchist uses social media as a weapon against this country and others taking anything that someone of note might say or do, and twisting it into something to manipulate the masses dividing them or even getting them to hate their president.
Propaganda or lies made up to appear as facts are not a new phenomenon either. All through history those with means have started rumors through loose talk, to control of the media, to now managing the conversation on social media.
Indeed there is a complete science regarding controlling the media and the conversation. PR firms make big dollars controlling the masses.
One of the news anchors on MSNBC was taped telling her cohort that they tell the American People what to think. Can you imagine the ego that this person has to even think that much less say it out loud! Sadly it is true in many cases, the media is biased and does tell people what to think.
Social media sites should be geographically isolated making it harder for people in other countries to effect change in another countries conversations. That might make it easier to figure out who the bad actors are. The recent revelation regarding Russian intervention on Facebook should have been an eye-opener for the staunchest of liberals.
Any tweet should be branded with which country it came from.
North Korea knows this all too well, that is why nothing of the “civilized world” gets into that country. The people are controlled as tightly as possible through strict means. Since we have access to 24X7 cable TV, the internet, radio not only standard stuff but shortwave and satellite we must be controlled with our emotions on the most popular media which is sadly Twitter, and Facebook! More people watch the comedians at night mistaking it for news, and the comedians know this and again push some agenda in the form of entertainment. It is propaganda, half-truths, and outright lies.
The NFL who would love not to be in the spotlight for their player’s activist views is also being played into pushing an agenda based on lies. Again pushing an agenda dividing the herd into groups by racial lines. They are an unintended consequence of racial strife perpetrated by bastardizing the facts.
If you are pissed, you are being played. The Wizard is still pulling strings, making the puppets dance and most of the herd are clueless.
What can you do to fight back?
- Realize when you are being played.
- If your emotions are tweaked, you are being played.
- Republish this article.
- Tell folks what I just told you.
Education is power, and this is part of that education. Once you know their game, you can defeat the wizard. You can pull the curtain back and see him or her as the megalomaniac curmudgeon that they indeed are. Together we can #stopthehate. The gods will not like this as they need us to hate.
Guard your emotions, my friends.
Much Love TW
