Project Veritas Caught Soliciting Crimes to Disrupt Trump’s Inauguration

Project Veritas is a right-wing disinformation outlet that runs fake stings on left-wing groups.

Disinformation media from Project Veritas is well debunked by snopes.com.

This time the tables were turned and Project Veritas got caught in its own net.

I feel this story is verified.

But to be honest, what cinched its authenticity for me was the activist drinking coffee out of a measuring cup.

Inciting violence and demonizing opposition to Trump is essential to Putin’s ongoing Propaganda campaign in the United States.

It takes control the media narrative.

from The Atlantic

The point of Putin’s propaganda is not to persuade anyone, but to keep the viewer hooked and distracted—to disrupt Western narratives rather than provide a counternarrative. It is the perfect genre for conspiracy theories, which are all over Russian TV. When the Kremlin and its affiliated media outlets spat out outlandish stories about the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine in July—reports that characterized the crash as everything from an assault by Ukrainian fighter jets following U.S. instructions, to an attempted NATO attack on Putin’s private jet—they were trying not so much to convince viewers of any one version of events, but rather to leave them confused, paranoid, and passive—living in a Kremlin-controlled virtual reality that can no longer be mediated or debated by any appeal to ‘truth.’

“WASHINGTON ― A political group released a new video Monday of a counter-sting that has uncovered evidence of right-wing activists trying to sow chaos at Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremony, an effort to portray critics of Trump who march against him as violent fringe figures. The counter-sting, carried out by The Undercurrent and Americans Take Action, a project of a previous target of provocateur James O’Keefe, managed to surreptitiously record elements of O’Keefe’s network offering huge sums of money to progressive activists if they would disrupt the ceremony and “put a stop to the inauguration” and the related proceedings to such a degree that donors to the clandestine effort would “turn on a TV and maybe not even see Trump.” To have riots blot out coverage of Trump, the donor offered “unlimited resources,” including to shut down bridges into D.C. The Undercurrent, led by executive producer Lauren Windsor, is sponsored by American Family Voices, which was among a constellation of groups infiltrated by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas during the presidential campaign, an effort to link Democrats with voter fraud.”

The Trump Trackdown!

Clip from a 1958 episode of Trackdown called The End of the World.

 

A snake oil salesman named Trump sells the end of the world to a town filled  with gullible people.

Local Judge: “When we were kids, we were all afraid of the dark. Then we grew up, and we weren’t afraid anymore… it’s funny how a Big Lie can make us all kids again.”

Things You Should Realise About Donald Trump #1 He’s a Very Unsubtle Thinker

from 2 2 4 Politics

Donald Trump is a man who incites strong, contradictory opinions. One thing we should be able to agree on – he is not subtle.

This is evident in his Twitter feuds. After her measured criticism of him, he announced that Meryl Streep is “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood”. Streep is an actress who pretty much everyone seems to rate – Kramer vs Kramer, Sophie’s Choice and so on. Even 2015 Trump admired her, choosing her second after Julia Roberts when asked to name the actresses he admired. The smart line of attack would be to admit she’s a good actress, but undermine her political expertise, maybe paint her as a ‘Hollywood liberal’. This is what pretty much every Trump supporter who we’ve seen react to Streep has done – none of his supporters are as unsubtle as the man himself. In Trump’s mind, it appears, a…
