Police shove an elderly, 75 year old man, causing a serious head and brain injury. They walk right past his unconscious body. Then they lie about it. And afterwards the city proclaims this “doesn’t reflect the true character of the Buffalo PD” when, in fact, it is exactly their true character. This is known as the “Begging the question fallacy”.
The CDC emits a continuous stream of inconsistent, often contradictory and generally incoherent messages – after failing to do its job back in January-March – and then blames the public for not understanding their message. The CDC Director is an idiot.
69% of the public thinks we will see a “second wave” of coronavirus.
What percent of the public has expertise to determine the likelihood of a second wave? Almost none. Consequently, this poll is measuring the effectiveness of prior public education or propaganda messaging on the topic. People have been told what to think by the media – and social media – and they regurgitate this in polls. This poll is basically meaningless.
Back in 2016, fake social media posts from fake social media accounts were used to incite fear and hysteria, with attempts to start riots. I documented this in detail back in 2016.
Today we again have fake social media posts being used to incite violence, looting, arson and anarchy – none of which leads to productive solutions to bona fide injustices and societal problems. Social media is playing a central role in this non-productive destruction of our society – and is not providing a platform for problem resolution.
The economist they cite predicted riots AFTER the November 2020 election, due to allegations of a rigged election or foreign interference. This prediction has nothing to do with the riots occurring in May of 2020. But it makes for an inflammatory headline, good for click-bait ad revenue.
As with past events, you cannot trust what you see on social media, when people wishing to make points or instigate further violence begin spreading photos that are from other events occurring months or years earlier. Always, always, always be skeptical of what you see on social media. Always think through whether each point is verified or verifiable – question what you are looking out, even if you want to believe it to be true.
Reporter standing in front of burning buildings says in live broadcast “I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not generally speaking unruly.”. Setting fire to buildings is not unruly. Got it.
Minnesota State Patrol issues an official lie after arresting a black CNN reporter during a live television broadcast. Why is Minnesota such a cesspit of state sponsored murder, racism and propaganda?
An Internet meme propaganda poster appears to contain false percentage data.
A fake study cherry picks the start date of the pandemic to make a false claim that billionaires became far richer due to the pandemic. The actual purpose of the “study” is propaganda messaging using the methods of cherry picking, appeal to authority, and emotion. The errors made are large enough to be treated as lies, as well.
