Here is the smug face of a Canadian ‘professor’ who wrote this article about how news has to be censored heavily and online media controlled to stop Russians from communicating with anyone and censor the push against globalism and the Bilderberg gang. Yes, there is a tremendous political and propaganda surge to enslave us all. The latest scheme is to have all news talk online pass through a filter run by the government that will decide what is real news and what is fake news. Back to the USSR, you don’t know how lucky you are.
The Beatles, back in the late 1960’s, made fun of all this with their song, ‘Back in the USSR.’ Singing like the Beach Boys, it was a hilarious song back then. Well, here we are, more than half a century later and this song is now quite ironic considering there are nearly no commies in Russia and Russia is now a capitalist society…and our Real Rulers who decapitalized England and the US, destroying our industrial base, are now claiming the capitalists in Russia are evil and they, the ones who removed our manufacturing to communist China, are the patriotic heroes.
These destroyers managed to wreck their home bases and drive them into bankruptcy. Scared of being exposed, they now want to censor everything online so only supporters of the Bilderberg gang policies can post anything here. This plot to destroy the entire internet to protect their rule is running alongside driving us all into WWIII which will physically destroy much life on earth.
“Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories – some fictional – that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.”
“Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as ‘bots,’ to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.”
“As for the bots, they carried links not only to news stories but also to Democratic emails posted on WikiLeaks, especially those hacked from Podesta and made public in October, said Philip Howard, a professor at the Oxford University Internet Institute who has researched the bot attacks.”
Good lord. These clowns are so stupid. Hillary had 90% of the US media working for her. She even had the gall to do two things because she is very lazy: not campaign at all after the convention and…have the media call for no elections because Trump was doomed to lose, he supposedly had only a 1.7% chance of winning according to the ‘polls’ run by the Bilderberg gang.
This gaslighting of the election was a total, roaring failure. Since Trump had near zero support in the mainstream media, people wanting ‘change’ went online to find out what was really going on. Soon, events showed clearly that the mainstream media was lying about nearly everything and people revolted and voted against the Bilderberg choice for President.
This revolt has utterly infuriated our rulers. They have now unleashed a small army of far left wing radicals whose main job is to terrorize any citizens doing anything patriotic or supporting the elected President. This push is backfiring because the pro-Trump people are now able to fight back without being put in prison.
Nearly no leftist rioters in states run by Democrats, are punished or arrested even when they attack Berkeley students and try to burn down the school! These violent gangs have been allowed to run riot and terrorize citizens.
The amazing thing here is, who in their right mind would think that this is a great way to gain power? Every leftist attack by masked young people who hide their faces, is turning people against the leftists! The other prong on the Bilderberg fork is to bring in millions and millions of illegal aliens and promise them all sorts of goodies if they attack and destroy citizens who then lose their jobs and become poorer.
This article is in a major university-run ‘magazine’ that operates out of Oxford, England. It is an amazing piece calling for censorship of citizen to citizen chat. Not public chat, PRIVATE chat a la East Germany under the communists.
A form of mass propaganda more insidious than anything used in the 20th century is being used to manipulate global politics, according to the latest research. The culprit is social media and the lax regulation that allows voters to be bombarded with politically slanted misinformation — fake news.
The stupid ‘fake news’ story continues. All the operatives bellowing about ‘fake news’ never talk about the real fake news at all. They all presume that their ‘news’ is real when it is certainly not real. It is pure propaganda and the levels it has reached, its detachment from reality, is now nearly total.
‘Ruling elites have often used propaganda to sustain their power, but this latest wave is different,’ says Professor Philip Howard, Director of Research at the Oxford Internet Institute and a Fellow of Balliol College. ‘Targeted messaging over social media is deeply personalised compared to the messaging that “all communists are evil” that used to be distributed by mass films. It’s much more difficult to source who’s generating the content. Users think the messaging may be coming from their family and friends; it’s about particular issues the programmer knows you care about. And it appears to be pretty effective.’
This lunatic is claiming that ‘bots’ are being inserted into citizens’ postings and are fake and UNWANTED by the owner of the Facebook pages, etc. This is an outright lie. I never heard anyone complain about ‘bots’ taking over their posts. I did hear a lot about censorship which erased or locked down postings!
‘Bots’ or ‘cyborgs’ — automated social media accounts which churn out propaganda — were first developed by marketing companies selling products through spam, but are now also used by political groups.
This ‘professor’ who seems to be a charlatan, is claiming that people posting political stuff at their own web sites are victims of ‘spam’. Ahem: NO. He gives zero proof of this, of course.
Professor Howard’s analysis of how ‘bots’ helped win a vote for Brexit and the election of US President Donald Trump made news in 2016. Brexit and Trump supporters seemingly had bots tweeting in much higher volume than campaigners for Remain or Hilary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton and the Remain people were unpopular. Even voters for both were indifferent until the results came in. Then they went ballistic. Oh no! How dare everyone vote differently! Now they are on the warpath, determined to force everyone to obey their desires. Attacking everyone else as ‘bots’ and ‘fake news’ and ‘cheaters’ is their only tool to stop citizens from doing what they voted to do.
Professor Howard (above) and his team have found it difficult to link such ‘bot’ accounts directly to politicians, but they have drawn lines to campaign managers as well as ‘ordinary’ citizens who call themselves ‘patriotic programmers’ — political spammers who pre-write propaganda and release it through thousands of automated tweets, day and night, or every six seconds for an hour. Fake news doesn’t get far without being ‘pushed around’ by these bots, Professor Howard observes. For example, if spammers want to persuade you that Hilary Clinton is corrupt and should go to jail, they write accusations with links to fake news stories — claims that have not been fact-checked — and get bots to spread the message.
I wasn’t spammed even once during the election. I did spend it writing heavily about ‘fake news’ aka, the mainstream media which lied about nearly everything during the election.
This form of political marketing is increasingly sophisticated. A few years ago, if you wanted to make yourself look very popular on social media, you would buy followers: £200–300 would buy you between a thousand and two thousand followers from a company in Singapore. If you had a bit more money you could pay for bots, automated accounts, to say things for you — you’d type the content yourself and over time the bots would release your messages. But these days, Howard says, you can rent hundreds or even thousands of ‘shadow profiles’.
Good lord, this guy writes as if he is a high school kid trying to explain the internet. The ‘bots’ this juvenile child is writing about are the stupid obvious spam we all hate. People recognize spam really fast. It is easy. Obviously, this idiot can’t so he assumes the rest of us can’t tell spam apart from real stuff.
Why are political conservatives winning the propaganda war? The Oxford Internet Institute team’s research has found that the conservative bots campaigned ‘more negatively’, for example by using messages about immigrants taking jobs. ‘Negative campaigning goes much further with computational propaganda,’ says Howard — in other words, on social media negative messages grab people more effectively than positive ones. Meanwhile, he believes, ‘Conservative groups tend to be more aggressive and creative in applying new technologies to target voters, and more willing to violate privacy norms to get messaging across.’ They are, in other words, more likely to play dirty with spam emails and calls, direct mail campaigns, push polling (where the question pushes the voter towards a given response) and, now, social media messaging.
The above entire paragraph is astonishing and disgusting. It piles lies upon lies. So, talking about immigrants stealing jobs is ‘propaganda’???? What the hell? And when did anyone ‘violate privacy norms’ except for the CIA, NSA, etc. These violations are huge and now being used to harass Trump and get rid of him and get rid of us.
They spied on us! This terrible man who is teaching students obvious lies at his university, claims that we did ‘push polling’ which is the exact opposite of what happened. The US mainstream media and the older polling operations all claimed in unison that Trump had zero chance of winning. They lied and lied all the way up until actual voting happened.
Only a tiny handful of pollsters got things right which proved to us all, our contention that the polls were biased was proved to be correct. That is, pollsters mainly polled DNC cities with high concentrations of pro-Hillary voters. The entire non-city countryside voted against Hillary.
The solution must lie in preventing the spread of misinformation during elections, Professor Howard thinks. Outrageous lies could one day be punishable in court. The German government is proposing a €500,000 fine for Facebook for every time is fails to take down junk news. ‘That would make Facebook move fairly quickly to stop it,’ says Howard.
Howard is evil. I say, we should deport him to his home base. Where is that? How about Germany that attacks any citizens discussing online, what is going on in Germany!
But in the first instance, Professor Howard says, we need governments to organise juries of randomly sampled citizens representing the diversity of society to meet with experts, thoroughly evaluate both sides of an argument and then produce a public document outlining the facts. ‘Voters can still ignore or disagree with the document, but this would be one of the few ways of improving referendum outcomes.’
HAHAHA…letting us choose who to listen to is going to be verboten! We are to listen to ‘random citizens of various types’ and of course, to get this, they have to choose people who have various identifying marks as to who they support, right? And don’t choose citizens living outside of the DNC run cities! Nope. Not them, they are the Deplorables.
