I love these posts that clarify that I’m not left or right as far as politics, even though they tend to upset a lot of my readership.
In this post, I will offer a simple but popular example of the right (right libertarianism) willing to deviate from truth and fact to forward their agenda and/or prove a point. This is incredibly frustrating when there are so many real examples to exploit. As the title states,
“Fake News Comes From Both Sides.”
One of the biggest threats to society right now, in my opinion, is the lack of reliable and truthful reporting available. There just isn’t any, at least not to any significant degree.
This, along with social media, is widening the gaps between left and right to the point of extremism where no compromise or understanding is extended.
For example, a right-wing moron might become convinced that vaccines are a secret method of population control. That person will fall on that sword of lies as long as it makes them look correct – EVEN after it has been proven a lie.
As soon as the 5G is FULLY activated, millions of vaccinated will die off. Oh, wait, that didn’t happen. No worries, we have thousands of other memes to spread more fake news, and when those don’t pan out, we’ll have more.
I call it the “Alex Jones Syndrome.” Keep screaming the end of the world is coming, and when it doesn’t, keep it going with another conspiracy. New suckers are born every second, so there’s no need to let the truth get in the way of facts.
It’s a shame because the right, at the moment, makes the most sense. They have an opportunity to demonstrate a worldwide agenda to strip citizens of every country of their freedom and livelihoods. Yet, the right chooses to push fake news and conspiracy theories that destroy any credibility.
Okay, enough with my ranting. Let’s get onto the Fake News example. By the way, I’m using the term “news” very lightly. As a blogger, I understand that news comes in many forms, and mainstream news is the most agenda-driven and unreliable fake news out there.
Art of Liberty Foundation Spreading Fake-News
I’ve been subscribed to the Art of Liberty Foundation email list for some time, and I’ve been really enjoying their ‘Five MEME Friday’ emails, but one thing has kept me from buying the book that these emails promote, “Government” – The Biggest Scam in History.
That is their willingness to toss every single piece of supporting information, whether true or not, into the mix. That, in my opinion, makes the entire piece unreliable. No one should have to research and fact-check every sentence to see what is true and what is blatant distortion.
The Art Of Liberty’s latest email, “The Covid 19 Suspects and Their Ties to Eugenics and Population Reduction,” is what set me off to write this opinion piece. How much of their email is true? I have no idea because they lost their credibility when they displayed the following MEME in the article/email:
This Bill Gates quote has been taken out of context to spread misinformation – fake news.
was taken from a 2010 Ted talk and refers to reducing carbon emissions – NOT the population. It has been taken out of context and placed into memes, articles, and agenda-driven rants.
This very quote has been debunked and proven incorrect many, many times over the years, which is why it drew my attention.
You can skip ahead to about 4 minutes and 20 seconds to find that exact statement used in the quotes designed to make it wrongfully look as if Gates were talking about reducing the population by 10 to 15 percent.
Bill Gates is neck-deep in the World Health Organization (WHO) and other oligarchs that scheme to increase control and influence by robbing society of every ounce of freedom left. I wouldn’t trust Bill Gates as far as I could throw him (And he’s big), but to cast outright lies and disinformation only robs us of the truth and should be shunned.
Shame on The Art of Liberty Foundation, they are poised to do so much good, but they seem unable to stand above the corruption they seek to expose.
I really wish there were an organization worthy of our loyalty and support, but it’s not looking good at the moment.
