No amount of disavowal or distracting disinformation will overcome what will come this week, but we’ll see, since POTUS* is trying to blame the targets of the attacks for causing them, people criticizing Trump while using their speech rights, people worshiping while Jewish, and people shopping while black
14 bombs sent to people opposing Trump
11 people gunned down in #Pittsburgh
2 black people executed while shopping
On Twitter, considerable troll-bot time is being spent manufacturing disinformation about disinformation, something that could be referred to as meta-disinformation. Cognitive dissonance should be on the rise.
We’ll see a lot of it this coming week, as there are palpable benchmarks: the worst antisemitic attack in US history is the lead and Trump cannot detach its meaning from his actions. Look for a Jarvanka media offensive soon, and perhaps we’ll actually have video of actual Honduran members of ISIS.
(CNN)Consider the past week in America.
