Washington Perfects The Art of Illusion: Keep America Focused on Boston Bombing While They Strip Us of Rights and Prepare for War
by Daisy Luther
The bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon was a shocking act of terror. All over the world, people watched in horror as the bombs went off, as people staggered and fell, and in the aftermath, saw the gory bloodstained sidewalks and graphic photos of people missing limbs.
We don’t expect acts like this to occur in America. Although this is a regular occurrence in places like Iraq, where 55 people died, the victims of bombings that very same day, it seems to people in the insulated Western World that it is far more appalling when it occurs on American soil.
And with that shock value comes a tool kit for the powers that be.
A horrific act that has society reeling can serve multiple purposes. It can distract the people from manipulations that would generally cause backlash. It can make people plead for protection, which always means the taking away of another right. And finally, it can serve as a tool to propagandize a message and demonize the villain of the day.
This is not a debate about whether the bombing was a false flag or a legitimate act of terrorism. It’s not a comparison of the losses here versus those in a desert on the other side of the world. It isn’t about the ethnicity of the bomber, who might be getting set up as an unwitting patsy, or who is actually responsible for the bombing itself.
This is a notification: the people who pull the strings will use this horrific instant of violence to manipulate and control the American people.
Please save us, Police State!
