The Saul Alinsky playbook “Rules for Radicals”, the roadmap to target political opposition, has been the primary strategic tool in the arsenal of Obama-era operatives for the past several decades. One of the key strategies outlined is “freezing your opposition” and contains three elements: Isolate, Ridicule, Marginalize.
In the modern era these same strategies were applied over social media through the control mechanisms of Big Tech platforms. Today, that crew made their biggest move to date. Facebook Announcement:
It is important to remember, while the target in this instance is Donald J Trump, the United States President, this ‘weaponized-for-politics‘ approach has been taken several times before by these same technology and communication operatives.
[SIDE NOTE: Factually, the first deployment of Facebook and Twitter for these political intents was in Egypt and the mid-east during the “Arab Spring”]
The goal of social media deployment in this way is fundamentally unchanged from the old school use of the Alinsky playbook before the era of social media. Targeting political opposition using the three prongs of “Isolation-Marginalization-Ridicule” is the same use of the same strategy using modern technology.
No doubt there was a general strategy amid the political-left to drive a wedge in the MAGA coalition and stimulate a “violent extremist” narrative about the assembly yesterday in Washington DC. Their unified approach was somewhat predictable as the Trump coalition is a serious threat to both wings of the political UniParty (Big Club) alliance.
President Trump and the 80+ million American Trump supporters, nationalists and populists, are a risk to those who use politics as a control mechanism; the same risk carried by the Yellow-vested populists in France and Europe.
The elite class of one-world globalists view these political nationalists (ie. America-First) as a threat to the larger objectives of control. Thus we see these same Alinsky strategies deployed everywhere around the globe with various nuances specific to the region.
After the events in Washington DC yesterday we received several contacts noting the first shot at a well coordinated and pre-planned operation was likely the deplatforming of CTH because of our known skillset of connecting historic dots to the current events. Indeed CTH has been warning about the looming deployment of these familiar strategies against Donald Trump both before and after the election.
The goal is to destroy populism; attack the MAGA movement, the actual threat to the system, by making anything related to Donald Trump controversial. This is the exact same approach used against other figures -who also represented a threat- with significant success; see: Sarah Palin.
Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies.
We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government. (Facebook)
Corporate Media and Big Tech, the foot-soldiers for the larger globalist movement, need to paint President Trump supporters as extremists, domestic terrorists, racists, etc in order to justify their approach to shut down voices in opposition to their masters, The Big Club.
This approach shuts down communication lines from the leadership and gives justification for the weak supporting elements within the network (ie republican politicians) to not fight against the real enemy. The goal is always to make the target controversial.
[Other references (narrative assemblies) to create controversial isolation include Charlottesville (racism), and even the original narrative of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic in the spring of 2020 (heartless, uncaring etc).]
The key is to understand what we are seeing today is a strategy. This is a part of a specific strategy that is repeated whenever any voice rises to prominence that is defined as a threat to the system of larger control, The Big Club.
You defeat these strategies by inoculating yourself against their effort, and understanding the reality they are trying to create is a false illusion. It is not real. Additionally, it becomes even more important to remember you are not alone; your thoughts, beliefs and perspectives on liberty and freedom are held by the majority.
There are, quite simply, more of us than them; however, they control the communication networks and platform. We anticipated this. We have been forced to deal with this and plan for this. That is why CTH 2.0 is so heavily focused on keeping our assembly together using an anti-fragile framework. Every battle is connected to the same war.
Facebook, Twitter and other technology groups will enlist a larger growing chorus of corporate and financial entities to assist the objective.
This is only the beginning.
