The Alternative Media is not alternative. It’s a trap for those who are considering breaking free from their cages and venturing forth beyond the Mainstream Perimeter. You’re led to believe that Alternative Media is the answer to the Propaganda that is the Mainstream Media, but that’s a lie. Alternative Media is yet more propaganda and it’s just as pernicious, if not more so, in its destructive effect because it affects & stymies those who have enough wherewithal to know they’re psychically incarcerated by the Social Engineers.
Any Alternative Media venue that receives considerable traffic is compromised IF it allows commentary. Russian Trolls in combination with Far Right & Far Left Radical American Chumps, descend on every Media Venue with substantial traffic, be it Alternative or Mainstream, and control the narrative in the commentary. This is WITHOUT FAIL.
The latest I’ve run across is Consortium News. At first glance, I was impressed with what Consortium News had to offer. For those who don’t know about Consortium News or have never heard of it, the following from Moon of Alabama blog explains what it is. I have great respect for Robert Parry’s Investigative Journalism. He was stellar in exposing the Iran-Contra War Crimes and the CIA’s involvement in Cocaine Trafficking to fund that diabolical operation along with Gary Webb. Both of these True Journalists PUT IT ON THE LINE and paid a dear price for their conviction & commitment to Truth & Justice.
More on that in a second but for now, here’s the screen capture from Moon of Alabama blog about the recent passing of Robert Parry. I had never heard of Consortium News prior to Moon of Alabama blog bringing it to my attention, and I’m glad the dickhead who runs that blog did so because it validates everything I’ve been saying at this blog forever now.
Moon of Alabama blog, by the way, is no different. The ASSWIPE who allegedly authors that blog allows commentary but he’s highly selective in who he lets comment and as a result, the Cesspool that is the commentary to that blog is permeated with a passel of Russian Trolls & Chumps. The author calls himself “b”. He is a PRICK for whom I have ZERO RESPECT.
After reading the aforementioned blog post at Moon of Alabama blog, I decided to Test the Waters at Consortium News. I did my Due Diligence. At first glance, I was impressed but as each day passed, I began to notice the all-too-familiar pattern emerge. A pattern that reveals a concerted effort to Control the Narrative and that Narrative is, America Bad – Russia Good.
The commentary at Consortium News is inundated with Russian Trolls and Far Right & Far Left Radical American Chumps. There are some exceptions, but they are few & far between and the articles selected and the authors at that venue, wittingly or unwittingly, provide the Bait for the Trolls in the commentary.
One way you know a venue has a Troll Infestation is THEY all address one another as though they’re great friends. They will not address you, an Independent, because you are not a member of the Team and they will attack any one who is not a member of Team who calls out their deception & their intent. They are not interested in learning & researching. That is not their purpose. Their purpose is to Obfuscate & Baffle, to keep the Stray Sheep from breaking the last line of defense and/or to capture or recapture your wandering/wondering Hearts & Minds.
Here’s the article and the commentary to it at Consortium News that cemented it for me. As I indicated, I had noticed the pattern emerging after careful scrutiny and interaction at that venue, but this article and its commentary Sealed the Deal. The Emperor at Consortium News is Naked. You want to prove me wrong, Nat (Robert Parry’s son who is now the editor at that venue)? Close down commentary and preclude your father’s legacy from being entirely decimated by these SCUMBAGS.
The commentary at Consortium News, or Clusterfuck Nation or Moon of Alabama blog is not Free Speech. It’s the exact opposite. It’s a bane to Free Speech because the aforementioned Russian Trolls & Chumps are not genuine and are not interested in positive, mutually respectful research & sharing. They are Obfuscating Propagandists and they haunt the commentary at any venue on The Net that receives considerable traffic. Do not give them a Platform. Do not give them an Audience.
They are VERMIN. They are SCUM. They deserve to be crucified and their bloated bellies cut open so birds of prey can slowly feast on their putrefied innards as they die an agonizing death on The Cross — for their sins, not our’s. Those who are Christian, these are the SCUMBAGS who crucified your Christ. Return the favor you Spineless Jellyfish or else they will continue to crucify your Christ From here to Eternity. These are the Types Castro executed in the public square for The World to see when The Cuban People proudly beat their asses fair & square. This is the ONLY fate they deserve. Mercy is a waste on this TRIPE.
This article was The Straw that Broke the Camel’s Back for me and it explains why Moon of Alabama blog is so enamored with Consortium News. Both carry the same message, and that message is, America Bad – Russia Good. Donald Trump Good – Hillary Clinton Bad. American Deep State Bad – Russian Deep State (which is THEE Russian State) Good. GOP Good – Dems Bad. Like every other Alternative Media venue, this dichotomy is omnipresent. It’s a Litmus Test for whether a venue is Propaganda or not. If it doesn’t pass this Litmus Test, it’s Propaganda of one form or another.
Here is my reply to that article.
I deposited the following comment at that link because it’s ridiculously ironic. These FREAKS are Walking Contradictions. They don’t care and those impressioned by them obviously don’t have the capacity to see the contradictions and absurdity.
Did you get that? Putin and his Henchmen detained this woman, the author of the article, and then booted her ass out of Russia and claimed she is an American Deep State operative. Too funny!! The Russian Trolls & Chumps justification for this is equally hilarious. How STOOOOPID can anyone be to take these CLOWNS seriously? Some of them have to be Russians because Russians are this GOOFY. But then again, so too are Trump Supporters. A Match Made In Heaven. But they’re also clever, the Russians, especially Russian Intelligence. Ask Jack Barsky, the former KGB Agent.
All the Russian Trolls & Chumps came out of the Woodwork for this one. They revealed themselves for WHO & WHAT they are. Deceivers & Idiots. What a great combination to Make America Great Again.
Here’s the Idiot part of that combination. The Freaks behind Trump cheering him on at his latest “rally” in Ohio. Why would nature allow this to be born? Where are the miscarriages when you need them?
One of the responses to my providing the link to Jack Barsky’s comments about American Presidents’ naiveté in dealing with Russians was that Barsky couldn’t be trusted because he is a former KGB Agent, presumably because KGB Agents, or any Intelligence Agents, are all about deception and incapable of The Truth. Fine, DUMBASS, let’s roll with that. I’ll accept your logic and apply it equitably. By virtue of your logic, Vladimir Putin is a former Intelligence Agent/KGB Agent and is therefore a Duplicitous Liar. So too is Ray McGovern who is a frequent contributor to Consortium News. Instead, we get the following comments about Putin at that venue.
With my reconnaissance complete, I left one final comment.
There are 185 comments to that article and counting and only one was genuine. Thanks, John, it’s nice to know we’re not alone amidst this MADNESS even if we are very few in number.
The following exchange tickled me because this LIAR is most definitely a Trump Supporter. They can’t even be truthful about it. If you look at this goofball’s posting history, he IS a Trump Supporter, whether he’s being deceptive or not. What a great All-American Blue Collar name, right? Too funny!! My Steelworker Uncle is rolling in his grave. Who would have thought? American Steelworkers For Putin!!
And finally, after I left that final comment, the activity at my blog picked up. St. Lucia paid me a visit. What’s notable about St. Lucia? Russian Oligarchs and The Russian Mafia, that’s what and St. Lucia is coupled with emails being shared by Russians per their version of Gmail.
Hey Good Looking, What’s You Got Cookin’?
