The left believes the truth is whatever you say fervently enough. This is of course, not reality, but I can guess how it got this way in their minds.
Blame this on the strange conjunction of my reading Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time (yes, it’s my link. I make some pennies from it.)I think I read it before, when I was not doing well, but the echoes are very faint) and this episode of well, what used to be trifecta.
I will first admit that I’ve always been HIGHLY suspicious of the rehabilitation of Richard III, partly because the people involved in it are cult-like, partly because the left always rehabilitates monsters.
I like the Tudor period not because it was great, but because it was interesting. The Tudor’s are somewhere between the Clintons and the Obamas given unlimited power.
So, can we trust anything that came out of a tightly controlled info environment? No. I’ve seen what the mass media did to Trump and how hard they’re trying to make Biden sound wonderful. Give it a few centuries….
So, maybe Richard III really was a decent man who was taken down and destroyed by a clan of very evil people.
(He is fortunately well beyond our judgement. And if he was good, someone else knows.)
The other was the fact that in the video even Scott Ott refuses to believe that the FBI is responsible for the deep fake. Even though we’ve seen plenty of evidence of their being dirty over the years.
Now, of course it’s possible it’s someone else. I believe I pointed out before that most of the white supremacist comments vanished overnight from my blog once I blocked SPECIFICALLY Russian IPs from commenting. And a lot of the crazy white supremacist anti-semitic stuff on blogs does seem to have a distinctly non-American flavor. Is there any reason to believe they wouldn’t stage something in person? Something that looked like the fake rally?
No, of course there isn’t.
One of the things that Americans are traditionally very vulnerable to is information wars. If it makes you feel better, the rest of the world is also coping with the information suddenly playing the joker and going wild.
We’re somehow coping better, and I have no explanation for this, except blogs to the level we use them, are extremely American for some reason.
What is all this about?
The truth is the truth. The method expounded by Tey to figure out the truth will work for us, too. You can figure out the puzzle if you look. But you have to look.
And you have to be aware there are people all over the world who think it would be a great idea if the next iteration of the US is a form of national socialism. Because that’s sort of where they live, anyway, including China. It is not a functional government, but it’s more functional than INTERNATIONAL socialism, and they’re clutching onto it for dear life.
Because individualism and not having power over others are unthinkable.
Do let’s make them think it. With spikes. (Or pikes, if it comes to that.)
Yeah, deep fakes exist, but we have the power to find the truth. And the truth exists as well.
Remember that. And be not afraid.
