Hey, I’m just as susceptible to propaganda as the next guy and I started out so angry at Assad-Rotten dictator! He’s killing his own people! Something must be done-here’s something-we must do it!
Then I happened to watch an obscure video by a Syrian “freedom fighter” who explained that actually, that smoke behind him was some tires he had set on fire to make a more dramatic background. Then I noticed that tires always must be set on fire in these videos. What’s a revolution without burning tires? THEN I noticed something even more disturbing.
I worked as a graphic artist for several years. I know the cost of printing signs and banners and have some idea how long it takes to make say, 20,000 of them. Yet, here were these supposedly wretchedly poor and oppressed masses marching with some very pricey stuff. Where did they get the money?
And finally, why the heck are signs printed in ENGLISH? The “revolutions” were in Serbia, Syria, Iran, Georgia (Russia)…and their signs are in English? Professionally printed? Obviously someone with money had paid for them and the message was intended for Americans. Very, very fishy. It’s called propaganda and the revolutions are for the most part fake, bought and paid for by American front groups to bring about regime change-fighting for democracy for the oppressed who happen to be standing on substantial amounts of energy resources.
It is not that people in these countries have no legitimate concerns-I’m sure they do. Don’t we all?
So Fake Revolutions:
1. Use burning tires (sometimes the whole darn car)
2. Many professionally printed signs/symbols
3. In English
If you’d like to read a horrifyingly amoral Handbook on Coup D’etat, here’s a classic from 1969. 108765924-Luttwak-1969-Coup-d-Etat-libre–
It is a How-To
A How-To use native people for regime change that disturbingly never asks:
Where did you get THE RIGHT to?
