Another re-print from something I originally posted this time last year over at pieceofmindfulpieceofmindful, in the run-up to the National Selection that brought us Troll-in-Chief, Donald Trump. My post focused a lesser troll who also appears to enjoy making a complete fool of himself for money and outed two examples of news fabrication, both local and national. (I would have said “fake news” but our governors have stolen and twisted the meaning of “fake news,” so I’m going with fabricated news from now on.) If you’ve already read this, you might be still be interested in the addendum at the end:

A man yells at the media as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaks during a campaign event in Phoenix

So there I was, scanning The Huffington Post to get a sense of the latest propaganda, and all of a sudden I was just minding my own business, when BAM! The picture above came out of nowhere up and hit me in the cranium right between the eyes. And I was like  “Wuuughghghghgh!” Sometimes reality hits you hard.

The picture was accompanied with this headline: “Trump Pounces On Emails As Supporter Chants ‘Jew S. A.” You can follow that link to the videos there or watch this:

Now, the reason the picture knocked me back in my chair was not due to this man’s shocking behavior that is supposed to show left-leaning HuffPo readers that Trump supporters are anti-Semites who use neo-Nazi hand signals. The cause of the inter-ocular trauma was that I instantly recognized the guy.

He was interviewed five years ago about a car crash in Arizona. The video was “songified” by the Gregory Brothers in their viral sensation, “Reality Hits You Hard, Bro:”

Still not 100% sure it’s the same guy? I wasn’t either, until I watched the original interview and saw that he has the exact same tattoo on the inside of his right forearm.

Of course, this indicates that the interview about the car crash is also fake. In fact, it looks kind of like a green screen behind him. And in any case the scene behind him doesn’t match his description of the electricity pole, dangerous wires, etc. Also notice how the guy standing behind him turns away from the camera to laugh, as if he’s hiding his laughter. Why would he feel the need to do that? And since this viral video is fake, it suggests that most if not all other viral videos become “viral” only when they are promoted, if not manufactured, by Intelligence.

If you think this is about Democrats hiring actors to sabotage Trump, ask yourself this: do you really think the “Jew-S-A” guy was really in a car accident in 2011 and then just coincidentally happened to be hired for this? No, he wasn’t. He was hired to fake the story about the accident, too. Do you think he was hired back then by George Soros or the Democrats to fake a car accident? Do you think that faked accident forwarded some partisan agenda? Think again. It wasn’t the Democrats or Hillary or Soros who hired him then, and it’s not them who hired him now. He’s a bit player in the MATRIX, and the game they’re playing against us transcends partisan politics.

[Edit: I want to make sure it’s perfectly clear: his car crash interview is another example of faked local news. Compare his story here to the pictures and video interview on NPR. The NPR story is wildly different. To take one glaring example, in that interview, he is very clear to say that he did NOT touch his door as he was getting out due to the fear of getting an electric shock. But in the viral video interview, he says he touched it on the way out and got shocked. It’s not just some detail he left out of one story and then remembered in another. It’s a small detail that he goes out of his way to describe totally differently in each story. Actually the NPR video reminds me of the footage of Gene Rosen practicing his lines for Sandy Hook.

Also, the pictures of his van show a minor fender-bender–not the sort of damage you’d expect after such a violent crash that sends each vehicle careening in different directions. So again, do you think it was Hilary or the DNC or Soros who paid him to fake this local news story 5 years ago?]

I have no doubt that people are planted at these rallies and the controversies are manufactured and fake. But the controversies surrounding Clinton are also manufactured. I would bet dollars to donuts that the 33,000 earth-shattering e-mails everyone is in a titter about are all faked as well (just like the letters between Albert Dreyfus and his wife read as fake). In short, this hoax is not about Democrats sabotaging Republicans or vice versa. And this post is meant to show that these manufactured controversies are part and parcel of our fabricated reality. Their real purpose is to tear us apart and keep us pointing fingers at each other, not to sabotage Trump or Clinton.

And if you want to tell me that this guy in this news interview just happens to be the same guy who went in front of the press box at the rally and started shouting “Jew-S-A,” well then I’d say your “coincidence theory” sounds less plausible than my “conspiracy theory.”

Watch the car crash interview again and notice his use of weirdly stilted/scripted language like when he talks about getting his “vehicle” fixed. What average Joe refers to their car or truck as a “vehicle”? One is reminded of the infamous “Harley Guy” interview on 9/11. Here’s a quick link on that. (Notice the black guy behind him appears to be his handler and at around 1:48 he leans in and says something, at which point they cut the interview.):

His interview also sounds stilted and scripted: “And then I witnessed both towers collapse, one first and then the second, mostly due to structural failure because the fire was just too intense.” People don’t say “I witnessed.” They say “I saw.” He sounds like he was coached by lawyers to give testimony in a court case or something. [Update: another example from a more recent event was the Vegas video allegedly showing someone going around checking the bodies. Towards the end of the video someone else asks who he is, and he responds: “I’m an innocent bystander.” Who talks like that?]

I have to admit that this post was a bit embarrassing to write, because it forced me to admit that I read the Huffington Post. In my defense, I will say that I no longer read it for news. Sometimes when I’m bored, like today, I go there to keep up on the latest propaganda they’re feeding to the Huffington Post’s left-of-center audience. Of course I always knew it had a left-of-center slant, but I used to not mind because it fell in line with my ideological viewpoint.

I did always think it strange that Arianna Huffington, who had historically been so right-wing and married to the god-awful billionaire Michael Huffington, made such a huge (and relatively quick) ideological about-face. Now I know better: her starting the left-wing Huffington Post was just another in a long line of projects she has been enlisted in. You can consult her Wikipedia entry for more information on her spook-y career. You’ll notice they don’t mention anything about her ideological reversal, as if it’s par for the course. And it is, because she is just one of many modern-day propagandists who changed their ideological views on a dime to suit the needs of whatever latest project Intelligence dreamed up.

Oh, and for those of you who think I should be embarrassed by my apparently encyclopedic knowledge of the Gregory Brother’s (admittedly genius) repertoire: I was reminded of the song by an unrelated discussion in another forum about over-the-top interviews of fake witnesses to fake events. I’m not sure I would have recognized the guy so easily if I hadn’t recently watched and posted the song there. Sometimes reality really does hit you hard, especially when it’s fake.

The fact that so many of these fake videos we’re being fed these day for all these hoaxed events come from cell phone cameras and videos spread through twitter and facebook help add to the sense that “this is real, uncensored grass-roots news footage.” Nothing could be further from the truth.

*** ADDENDUM 10/30/17: Miles Mathis recently posted a paper about Netflix promoting the stories of fake serial killers. He mentions there the Netflix show, “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” The backstory of that show is that Kimmy was kept for 15 years in an underground bunker by a wacky Christian cult leader who lied to her and two other girls about them surviving the end of the world but not being able to leave the underground bunker. So the show is, as usually, promoting the black-washing of Christians and Christianity. And, although a fictional story, it serves to reinforce the supposed reality of various cases of men kidnapping girls and women and hiding them away in basements and such. Think Silence of the Lambs.

A perfect example of this can be found in one of the stories mocked by The Gregory Brothers. It’s the story of a black guy in Cleveland who allegedly discovered two girls that his neighbor had held captive in his house. Their song is called “Dead Giveaway.” The Gregory Brothers also wrote the opening song for Kimmy Schmidt in the same satirical style as their songs about other, presumably real events. I think we now know what to think about the reality of those events. From now on, whenever the Gregory Brothers write a song about some event, I’ll take it as a dead giveaway that it was fake.
