The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “Free Thought Project“…
“When someone calls you a conspiracy theorist, what they are really saying is they are too lazy to do their own research & we should just trust the government and media to tell us the truth.” – Immortal Technique
Rayn: Bring it on!
Sam B.: No, but anyone who says this in any seriousness is claiming that failing to support their unsubstantiated claim makes you a sheep, and that the only real research is watching conspiracy YouTube videos and lurking on Infowars.
Rayn: That’s a nice straw man you’ve got there. Yet, I never made any such claim, nor have I made any unsubstantiated conspiracy theory claims, for that matter. I also don’t watch “conspiracy YouTube videos,” nor do I lurk in InfoWars. Sorry I don’t fit into your neat little box of dismissal. Meanwhile, anyone’s failure to support their claim that I’m a “conspiracy theorist” makes them a lemming.
Genaire: Several credible news outlets have YouTube videos, that have done credible journalism to expose the fraud which was the Iraq war, the fraud in which was the Libyan invasion and the list goes on and on.
Rayn: I remember when a bunch of lemmings attacked me as a “conspiracy theorist” over my views about the police…
RT has asked the US State Department for specific information concerning allegations that Russia is targeting hospitals in Syria. The response was a reiteration of those allegations and a refusal to treat RT in the same way as other media outlets.
During Wednesday’s State Department briefing, spokesman John Kirby accused Russia and the Syrian regime of the bombing of “five hospitals and at least one mobile clinic in Syria.” RT’s reporter Gayane Chichakyan asked Kirby to specify the details of the alleged incidents, including their location.
My Commentary: Well, then… It looks like the mainstream media monopoly is officially losing it’s death-grip over the mind of the public!
Meanwhile, Obama meets with German chancellor, Angela Merkel, in Berlin for a joint press conference, and stands by silently, while she states:
“Digitisation is a disruptive technological force that brings about deep-seated change and transformation in society. Look at the history of the printing press, when this was invented what kind of consequences it had. Or industrialisation, what consequences that had.”
“Very often, it led to enormous transformational processes within individual societies and it took a while until societies learned to find the right kinds of policies to contain this, to manage and steer this. We live in a period of profound transformation.”
