Friendly warning: This post is another warning about our scorched earth spin information war. In light of the Mueller report, not saving America from the spin war, I just felt like repeating my warning.
The endless semantical musical chairs word game has frustrated me about American presidential politics since the advent of sophisticated spin operations began in the 90s. This same word game still frustrates me today. Perhaps my frustration stems from a childhood spent struggling not to stutter, struggling to spit out words, but most of all, devoting hours upon hours, reading the dictionary. I practiced trying to learn how to pronounce words and I practiced trying to remember what words mean. Of course, many words have multiple meanings, but with the spin word games, most of the effort is to redefine the truth, using slippery language to manipulate people into believing bold-faced lies.
Spin is mostly bold-faced lies, deliberately used to dupe the American people.
That’s the truth.
Sure, we all know politicians aren’t noted for their candor and truthfulness, but spin operations are mass media driven efforts to drive and control public opinion in America. Mass media serves as the battlefield for the cultural war in America. It’s doubtful that most politicians and the media, who serve as the foot soldiers battling forth in the spin war, even really realize they are fighting in an information war to control public opinion in America. The entire spin war runs counter to American free speech principles and assures corruption of all who engage in it. When you begin to go along with using “spin” to win, you’ve bought into deliberately manipulating Americans, deliberately spreading carefully crafted political messaging and deliberately working to confuse the meaning of words (mass media propaganda brainwashing operations). You’ve bought into deliberately spreading lies.
If you embrace spin information warfare, you are embracing a march toward authoritarianism.
Winning the spin war is to control public opinion in America via sophisticated control of mass media messaging (winning the spin cycles).
The Left has owned the spin cycles in America since the 90s.
The Right relied on Fox News, talk radio, online forums and formats, but the Left controlled all of the mainstream media avenues in America.
I feel like a broken record repeating this, but American liberty depends on Americans, especially our leaders, understanding the dangers posed to American liberty by this endless spin information war. America is not only politically divided, but due to the effects of non-stop, scorched earth spin information warfare blazing across American media 24/7, it’s becoming more and more difficult to keep track of the spin, keep track of the corrections, keep track of which parts of reports were true, which parts were debunked and frankly, the amounts of spin starts destroying our ability to figure out the truth.
If you watch MSNBC and CNN, you live in one hermetically sealed spin bubble. If you watch FOX, you live in a different hermetically sealed spin bubble. Much of what is reported, as objective news, inside either spin bubble is obviously biased, but the real insidiousness of spin comes with the pundits in these bubbles, who tirelessly spew out carefully crafted spin messaging, to herd and corral their viewers into remaining loyal, rabid partisans.
Before Trump, the Left was winning the larger cultural war, and had owned the spin war for decades, afterall, they have dibs of being referred to as “the mainstream media”, while Fox news was dismissed as “Faux news” and talk radio was cast as the home of “dangerous, right-wing militia types, who should be regulated by the government”.
Trump broke through the Left’s control of the spin in America and he did it by learning how to emulate the Clinton spin messaging tactics. He doesn’t have as sophisticated of a spin messaging strategy as Bill Clinton and his spin gurus, but Trump operates as a spin guerilla. He mastered rapid spin attacks that disrupt the Left’s carefully crafted spin attacks and his guerilla spin attacks often win the spin cycle (OODA loops).
Trump followers are just like Clinton followers and Obama followers. They buy into the spin of the leader. They repeat the leader’s spin. They become emotionally invested in the leader’s spin messaging. Trump just like the Clintons and Obama relies on spin messaging to keep his following. They are all dedicated to deliberately lying to the American people to advance, first themselves, and second their political agenda.
None of them has any respect and reverence for speaking the truth.
None of them will save America from the reckoning that will come at the end of our scorched earth spin war.
All three camps – Trump, the Clintons and Obama were engaged in corrupt activities to win the spin in 2016
That’s the truth.
All three camps, with their media spin operators, are still engaged in corrupt spin messaging operations to cover-up their corrupt activities to win the spin in 2016.
That’s the truth, too.
With American partisans entrenched in spin operations, it’s paramount for America’s leaders to recognize that SPIN info war is more of a threat to America than any one political leader or political party. Spin information war leaves America wide open to hostile foreign information warfare attacks. We have no means to protect ourselves from insidious foreign mass media efforts to fuel divides in America, when our American media is engaged running domestic partisan spin war operations.
At the end of a scorched earth spin information war, America will be a totally balkanized country, easily defeated by hostile foreign organized sophisticated information warfare operations, and we could fall sway to abandoning large chunks of our liberty, out of mass panics incited by spin operations (both domestic or hostile foreign ops).
Stopping this scorched earth spin information war, that is tearing the soul of America apart, remains vital to American liberty and to America’s future as a constitutional republic.
Quite a gloomy prediction, here, but never fear, everyone in America can fight against spin info war – just stop buying into the politicians and media spin messaging efforts, start thinking for yourself and look for the truth. Sure, for some partisans, who have become mind-numbed spin robots repeating their side’s spin for many years, the spin detox might take a bit longer… almost like leaving a cult, but for most Americans, it shouldn’t be that hard to break free of the spin.
Start thinking for yourself, instead of relying on other people to think for you.
Be a rebel against spin…
Have a good day, lol.
