So here we are 2016, but with the way things are going, you'd think it was the 1950's again. Oh and before some smart ass comments, yes I'm fully
aware the red in red scare represents communism not Russia. Don't be so damn literal, moving on.
Why do I say that? Well Russia this, Russia that. They've started becoming the new/old boogeyman again. Just without the communism.
Now I'm not saying Russia doesn't have an intelligence agency, but it seems to me pretty damn convenient that the more people stop playing ball with
what the establishment feeds us, the more Russia is suddenly responsible for our perceptions. It can't possibly be anything wrong at home. We just
don't understand, it's that damn Russian Propaganda. Russia aren't saints, but neither is our government.
So we're left with a choice, do we trust the government has been our friend the story they want us to swallow, and big bad Russia is feeding us lies
and everything is hunky dory? Or do we believe what many of us have seen with our own eyes and felt with our own hearts, that something is seriously
wrong with our government and the corruption we see is true?
Much of this new red scare, same as the old, is a boogeyman to scare us into submission and convince us to hide behind our governments pant leg while
they scare away the big bad Russians. They can't use terrorism this time, so we're dusting off an old favorite, back to the Russians. Control
through fear, create an atmosphere of plausible deniability for our government. We need to counter that damn Russian propaganda, the media isn't
biased or controlled, it's just not Russian controlled, get your media somewhere else it's the Russians. Oh you think we're doing something you
don't like, naw, you've just fallen for Russian propaganda again, everything's fine. Corruption, breaking the law, once again Russian propaganda
squeaky clean here. Someone other than us uncovered something we didn't want you to know, once again, it's the Russians, really them dastardly devils
are around every corner. Wait we're doing things that step on your rights, we apologize but it's for the greater good, you see, it's them damn
So we're going back to the days of McCarthyism just cutting out the commie red devil part and going pure Russia this time. Russia may be responsible
for many of the things it's accused of, but always remember, so are we. Let's not ignore that we have our own propaganda machine. Is Russian
propaganda out there? Sure, but our MSM well that's largely US propaganda and legally so. So when MSM says something or our government body says
something, always question, is this the truth, or what they want us to believe? Is this actually Russia, or a scare tactic? Look deeper at who
benefits most by what's being said.
Remember the only words the government wants us to hear are their own.
