Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
Scrolling through Faceberg, I noticed a conservative shared this story along with an enthusiastic comment about Trump finally cracking down on degenerate liberal Hollywood celebrities taking drugs.
According to the White House OIP, President Trump directed the DEA and FBI to create a joint strike team to infiltrate the infamous drug-addled parties that notoriously follow the Oscars and to “make an example” of their hosts. The operation went off without a hitch, with the homes or privately-funded club parties of seven prominent liberals ending in shutdowns and arrests.
According to Madeleine Shwiskler, Deputy White House Propagandist:
“President Trump has attended some of these parties personally in the past and has often spoken of their heinous anti-government undertones and blatant drug use. These are exactly the kinds of events that the administration will be shutting down. Getting them on drug charges is much easier thatn prosecuting them for their crimes against the state.”
Not even a pro-Trump story describing one of his supposed press staffers as a “propagandist” was enough to tip off this seemingly intelligent conservative that this story was canonical “Fake News,” a political fantasy tailored specifically for people like him. Not even the unlikely name “Madeleine Shwiskler” clued him in.
As Agent Molder might say, “I Want To Believe.”
Of course it’s not just conservative Republican partisans, liberal Democrats “want to believe” as well, and some enterprising internet entrepreneurs have decided to give the public what they want: Complete Bullshit That Reinforces My Political Beliefs.
The websites Liberal Society and Conservative 101 appear to be total opposites. The former publishes headlines such as “WOW, Sanders Just Brutally EVISCERATED Trump On Live TV. Trump Is Fuming.” Its conservative counterpart has stories like “Nancy Pelosi Just Had Mental Breakdown On Stage And Made Craziest Statement Of Her Career.”
So it was a surprise last Wednesday when they published stories that were almost exactly the same, save for a few notable word changes.
After CNN reported White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was “sidelined from television appearances,” both sites whipped up a post — and outrage — for their respective audiences. The resulting stories read like bizarro-world versions of each other — two articles with nearly identical words and tweets optimized for opposing filter bubbles. The similarity of the articles also provided a key clue BuzzFeed News followed to reveal a more striking truth: These for-the-cause sites that appeal to hardcore partisans are in fact owned by the same Florida company.
In an attempt to prop up the credibility of the dying legacy media, Forbes reports the story and attempts to distance “serious journalism” from click-bait.
It’s not new for a media organisation to own various outlets with different slants or political ideologies aimed at different demographics, but they also tend to have a completely different staff and operate independently of each other. The similarities between these two stories would suggest that the same person — or at least the same team — wrote them both.
Our instinct to click on headlines which accurately represent our outrage at the piece of news they’re reporting is natural. Subconsciously we may feel like we’re visiting a site created by a friend or a political ally; that the writers are on our side and the organisation is one worth supporting. In fact, these kinds of websites are most likely in it for the money and the content they’re producing is unethical at best.
AryanSkynet may wish to take this new market into consideration. An anti-white site published as an adjunct to the pro-white site might not only help to publicize each other, but even generate revenue.
But staking out the two “sides” becomes even more effective when you put your real message squarely in the center – the moderate reasonable alternative to the extremists on either end of the spectrum.
That’s how you do it.
