Q: How propaganda works...

I've been having yet another argument with someone who thinks anything Islam is bad,and he's been trying to get me to read Robert Spencer's stuff (if you're lucky enough to not know who this is... lucky you! RS is a fraud - plain and simple!)

 

One of the posts that was linked that I was supposed to read was this:

 

https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/08/barcelona-backlash-fears-in-the-end-m...

 

I noted one of the comments from 'Bob' - "Once again, no words of regret from the alleged ‘moderate’ muslims – just whimpers of fear…some wicked infidel might want to return the compliment!"

 

So, where's the propaganda?

 

The fact that the author of that piece deliberately cut out of the article he (half C&Ped) the actual bit where said moderate Muslims did express regret. In fact, anything that made Muslims actually, you know - human - was cut!

 

RS was nice enough to provide a link to the original article.. but obviously, most people who visit there aren't going to bother clicking and reading....

 

Adding to this... one whole article based off just 1 line made by one person. (and, actually, if you do the body count, yes - it is  actually the Muslims who will be hurt the most.... they have been the majority of terrorist attack victims for DECADES!)

 

 

(PS - the guy I've been arguing with has now de-friended me.... I don't think he liked that I would do a fact check, and not just blindly accept his - and his heroes - version of the world).

 

 

When you're faced with 'information' that you don't agree with - do you fact check?

 

When you're faced with 'information' that you DO agree with - do you fact check?

Mao would be a good person to answer this question. He is not around so I will let the results of his propaganda masterpiece speaks for himself.

 

About 2 million tortured to death. 125 million tortured resulting in permanent disability, some crippled (an escaped newspaper editor, a daluren's father I knew of lost one of his legs when thrown off the balcony, CCP gave him a bike as compensation afterwards, you read right, a bike), all kinds of deformations fingers (an old lady, still alive, who escaped showed them to me, a result of tying her two thumbs together and then hanging her up using those two thumbs for days).

 

This is the power of propaganda in the hands of an evil man with an evil and deceptive political ideology (communism) in his coconut.

 

http://factsanddetails.com/china/cat2/sub6/item1813.html

...... nearly two million Chinese were killed and another 125 million were either persecuted or “struggled against” (“subjected to “struggle sessions”) as a result of the state-sponsored killings and atrocities committed during the Cultural Revolution. 

 

 

The widespread phenomenon of mass killings in the Cultural Revolution consisted of five types: 1) mass terror or mass dictatorship encouraged by the government---victims were humiliated and then killed by mobs or forced to commit suicide on streets or other public places; 2) direct killing of unarmed civilians by armed forces; 3) pogroms against traditional “class enemies” by government-led perpetrators such as local security officers, militias and mass; 4) killings as part of political witch-hunts (a huge number of suspects of alleged conspiratorial groups were tortured to death during investigations); and 5) summary execution of captives, that is, disarmed prisoners from factional armed conflicts. 

 

The most frequent forms of massacres were the first four types, which were all state-sponsored killings. 

 

The degree of brutality in the mass killings of the Cultural Revolution was very high. Usually, the victims perished only after first being humiliated, struggled and then imprisoned for a long period of time."

Why do so many muslims attack and kill so many people? Is it something to do with them being muslim, or is that just a happenstance?  I'm asking is it something to do with that 'religion', or are they just crazy kids who have a shitty life and take it out on others, like criminals hiding behind the ideology?

Here's why the lefties can't be trusted on this topic. When people point at statistical facts (percentages of Muslims who believe in barbaric ideas such as genital mutilation, death for leaving the religion or adultery)  the left says you're accusing all Muslim people . And then they claim it's only a small fraction (ignoring facts). I've not heard anyone say ALL Muslims , point to a post or article that says All?

I even fact check lunch photos on my wechat moments Puzzled)

I heard a pundit on fox today say that the left are now doing 'selective news'.

Even that statement above is false, but true. The pundit said it on Friday, but i heard it today. Ambiguous.

A Chinese mate told told me today that the Sun newspaper in the UK has stopped publishing photos of topless teenagers. I am fucking outraged. How dare they. The PC crowd in another country are denying my right to oggle semi naked teens.

ha ha... get my point.

Today, left and right report on an arabic porn actress who says ISIS want to kill her.

Amazingly both left and right agree that she should be allowed to be filmed sucking any cock she wants to, while being paid to be filmed doing it.

Nasty Muslims, denying her human rights to be a porn actress.

In left wing press she is the victim because she cant sell her skills and her femininity to the highest bidder. Her photo is in black and white. Sad face.

In right wing press, she is in glorious technicolour with her tits spilling over a low cut hooters tee shirt.

She will make loads of money. Good on her.

Now consider someone such as Mike Pence.

He has to be against the bad Muslims. ISIS want to kill her. He has to support her cause...she wants to be a free capatalist Muslim who does porn.

Used as a propaganda tool by both sides. Who is the most sincere?

I bet VP Pence has alreadry researcherd her case. On his phone, in his bathroom :-0

Just been browsing the daily fail, flipping left to right on today's stories.

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4843290/Will-Kim-Jong-launch-six...

 

The mail runs these stories all the time. And all the photos look the same. Is it a farm?  Is it a mine? Maybe a nuke site?

 

Look at the copyright on the image, bottom left. 38 North. A think tank. Then have a look on their own website to see who their donors are. 

 

Then imagine you you are the leader of the DPRK, or imagine you are any senior person. You want to test a nuke, you know every square inch of your country is being monitored, and you built a test site in the open?

 

Anyone who has watched the great escape knows how to dig a hole or tunnel unseen.

 

Now read the comments on the article. Seems to be a common theme.

 

Now look at the actual report from 38 North.

 

http://www.38north.org/2017/08/punggye083017/

 

The source of the report is media reports. The source of the media reports is the 38 North article.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
