[Editor’s Note: At no time in my tenure here on Planet Earth as a publisher, editor and journalist has the issue of Propaganda become more important than today. With the sudden onslaught in 2020 of the specious Covid -19 attack upon Humanity the wheels of this gigantic, psycho-technic juggernaut have increased to such an intensity that the average human being is now faced with such a staggering quantity of psychic/mental and visual data that their capacity to discern what is truth and what is falsehood (i.e. propaganda) is at a critical stage of being overwhelmed.
The expression “Information overload” has been with us since the 1960s but its application in the past tended to apply to specific instances but never has this relatively recent phenomenon assumed such a paramount, wide-spread degree of influence upon the general public as what we’re now witnessing with the plethora of information surrounding the Covid debate.
The year 1962 (here in Canada no less!) brought to the world Marshall McLuhan’s paradigm-breaking book “The Gutenberg Galaxy” followed by his next best-seller “Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man” in 1964 to be then topped off in 1967 with his and Quentin Fiore’s visual presentation “The Medium is the Massage: An Inventory of Effects.” All these books, plus other productions that sprang forth in response to them, changed the world in ways that most people still have yet to fathom. For the younger generations that followed any analysis of these thought-provoking texts has likely never occurred yet the effects of the new media which formed the basis of the texts can now be seen in the outward growth and expression of resistance and protest currently manifesting around the globe.
Part 1 of this series will analyze how the old media paradigm, aka the establishment media or the mainstream media (msm) or the corporate media, is presenting the Covid narrative to the world in what can only described as a fierce, fervent, unrelenting attempt to persuade the general public to acquiesce to the demands of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in as quick a manner as humanly possible.
Using mind-control techniques that were invented back in the first half of the 20th century – a period of our world history pock marked by two major world wars – the msm, in its pursuit of actualizing the One World Government agenda, continues to employ all of its ancient arsenal of weaponized language that proved effective in days gone by. The majority of the accompanying graphic images used to illustrate my thesis in Parts 2 & 3 will be, for some, both shocking and provocative. I make no apology for their use.
The Western world, throughout the 20th century and into the 21st (graphically reinforced by 911), has been continuously ruled by deception and false flag events, all of which, thanks to not being addressed and rectified earlier, have finally devolved into the global crisis that mankind is now facing. To understand it all (rather than to be overwhelmed to the point of being numbed and disabled by it and ultimately deceived into resigning oneself into a state of suspended apathy) is to see both sides of the narrative and to then judge via reason, logic, common sense and one’s intuitive heart-felt sense, what is Truth and what isn’t.
Part 1 will therefore focus on the mechanics of how immediate generations after WW2 were subjected to the same continuous assault upon their minds as what the adult populations were subjected to throughout the 1930s and 1940s when it came to the causes of the war and ultimately who was responsible for precipitating it.
Part 2 will focus on the role that the Canadian media performed during WW2. To illustrate the wartime propaganda I will be utilizing a number of graphic images taken from the Toronto Star Weekly’s Front Pages plus a commentary by the editor of the book STAR WEEKLY AT WAR Mr. Ian Verner Macdonald.
Part 3 will be, as Paul Harvey, former American radio broadcaster for ABC News Radio used to comment “the rest of the story”; the part the world in general has still not been fully appraised of even though many writers have produced the evidence to show what the Western media purposely has left out in order to meet their own sinister agenda.]
The Politics of Language:
Propaganda, Truth & Justice
A Quesnel Cariboo Sentinel Special 3-Part Series
The Quesnel Cariboo Sentinel
May 18th, 2021
One could hear the screams of Street Pastor Artur Pawlowski as the Calgary police manhandled him to the his knees on the pavement, forcing his arms to fold behind his back as they clamped their handcuffs around his wrists: “Nazis!”, “Gestapo!” he cried out as the traffic sped by along the freeway.
It was all too reminiscent of past days; days that stretch back through recorded history to the time when Jesus Christ and his Apostles were given similar and worse treatment by the powers of the Priesthood and Pagan Rome.
And for what did these injustices take place? Were these individuals thieves and murderers? Were they corrupt politicians who had sold out their country to alien forces? Were they traitors who, under cover of night, for silver or gold, raised the heavy oak timbers that held fast the security gates of their countrymen’s sanctuary allowing access to their enemies? No. They were simply God’s children working for their Heavenly Father in the Spirit of Love and Peace, labouring to awaken the slumbering masses and bringing tidings of great joy to their hungry hearts, minds and souls.
In the case of Pastor Artur Pawlowski we see once again Christianity itself epitomized in one individual, symbolizing the ever-recurring dilemma that faces those willing to speak Truth to power. But there is a missing factor in the majority of Christians today; one that was ever present when the Lord walked upon the desert sands in days of yore. That is the substance of this essay.
As the article title states, we are concerned about not only Truth and Justice but also the “politics of language” which, of necessity, requires immediate address and concerns not only the courageous, righteous Pastor Artur Pawlowski but anyone, be they Christian or otherwise, who is honestly concerned about the principles of Truth and Justice in a world now fraught with an inestimable preponderance of outright lies and massive deception; all of which emanate from the hidden force now controlling the major news sources around the world.
It must, of course, also be categorically emphasized from the start that this force manipulating the established media is one that didn’t just suddenly appear back in January of 2020 along with the advent of Covid-19. The facts, given proper exposure, will show that it has been with us now in its present form for at least the last 100 years and throughout that period has played a paramount role in manipulating and affecting every significant event that has occurred on the earthly stage. As preposterous as that might sound at first mention I must leave it as such and continue on with my stated thesis.
Recorded history, as we’ve come to know it throughout the 20th Century and now in the nascent beginnings of the 21 Century, is for the most part a fabricated, manufactured, illusionary reality. Yet, even though I assert such a viewpoint my arguments in favour of such a position don’t deny actual events that manifested in real life only the manner in which they have been interpreted for the masses and projected to them through highly contentious lenses; ones which the average person had absolutely no control over.
When I use the term ‘politics of language’ I’m speaking of how the controlled media furnishes its audience with weaponized language – be it single words, idiomatic expressions or phrases – which it then repeats again and again across all of its platforms, be they the print media (newspapers, magazines, books), the televised new media, tv generally, the Hollywood movie industry and the Internet. Whenever a single word or phrase is coined by those behind the media curtain it becomes promoted subliminally and overtly to the general public with such repetitive impact and power of persuasion that within a generation or two the masses of listeners and readers will by then have assimilated it into their minds and will begin regurgitating whatever mental morsels they’ve figuratively swallowed without ever realizing that it might have originally been a calculated, fabricated lie dispensed for purely propaganda purposes.
That, in essence, is what this writer sees occurring today when we witness good (or bad) people, be they Christian or otherwise, shouting out words loaded to the hilt with false meaning and connotation; words which, when heard by others, tend to automatically become associated with particular individuals or ethnic groups or nation states regardless of whether or not the meaning is correct.
This phenomenon of manipulating words, that began in earnest around the 20th century, might best be categorized (on an intellectual level at least) under a heading such as “Psycho-Linguistics” but on a deeper, more occult level, it borders on or actually finds its origins within that psychic sphere generally labeled the “black arts” under the sub-title “Sorcery.”
The godfather of these highly infused words or phrases is, undoubtedly the term “anti-semite” which came to prominence around the first two generations of the 20th century when the actions or deeds of a particular group (for various reasons), began to appear in newspapers and periodicals in Great Britain, the European Continent and North America. The group in question, being exceedingly small but at the same time also powerful beyond most people’s comprehension due to their financial position, began to counter the bad press they were starting to receive by colluding and using their “power of the purse” to start purchasing the very publishing houses and newspapers that were, in their estimation, committing the very foul deed which the group alleged was being perpetrated upon themselves. It was likely the first overt act on the part of any group or organization to change the thinking patterns of the general public. Some might even go so far as to suggest that it was the actual beginning of what we now tend to call the “Big Brother” news media as it was coined back in the late 1940s by British journalist and author George Orwell.
I’ll give readers one poignant example of the influential effect that this method of empowering words and expressions has had on the publishing industry, journalism in general, and global politics.
The following quote [edited for legal reasons. Ed.] comes from one of the 20th century’s great journalists and researchers the late Douglas Reed in a book that was completed in 1956 but didn’t see the light of day until after his death in 1978:
“A private organization which can produce such results [i.e, weaponize a term. Ed.] is obviously powerful; there is nothing comparable in the world. Mr. Vincent Sheehan wrote in 1949, “There is scarcely a voice in the United States that dares raise itself for the rights, any rights, of the Arabs; any slight criticism of the [censored. Ed.] high command is immediately labelled as anti-semitic”. . . [Again, recent events in the Middle East prove the validity & the poignancy of Sheehan’s words.A.T.]
“How is the oracle worked? By what means has America (and the entire West) been brought to the state that no public man aspires to office, or editor feels secure at his desk, until he has brought out his prayer-mat and prostrated himself to [censored. Ed.]? How have presidents and prime ministers been led to compete for the approval of this faction like bridesmaids for the bride’s bouquet? Why do leading men suffer themselves to be paraded at hundred-dollar-a-plate banquets for [censored. Ed.], or to be herded on to[censored. Ed.] platforms to receive “plaques” for services rendered?
“The power of money and the prospect of votes have demonstrably been potent lures, but in my judgment by far the strongest weapon is this power to control published information; to lay stress on what a faction wants and to exclude from it all that the faction dislikes, and so to be able to give any selected person a “good” or a “bad” press. [emphasis added. Ed.] This is in fact control of “the mob”. In today’s language it is “the technique of propaganda and the approach to the masses”, as [censored. Ed.] said, but it is an ancient, Asiatic art and was described, on a famous occasion, by Saint Matthew and Saint Mark: “The chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude . . . The chief priests moved the people . . .”
Let that suffice for the moment in terms of spotlighting the issue at hand. I’ll now cut to the chase and identify the currently abused terms and explain why they were concocted in the first place and what the real intent of their misuse was meant to create in the minds of those still being indoctrinated with these false terminologies.
The second weaponized word or term that’s been manipulated by the Big Brother controlled media since its early prominence in the 1930’s, is the offensive pejorative epithet “Nazi”; a word that was intentionally attached not only to the National Socialist German Worker’s Party of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich but, by extension and through extrapolation, to the German people generally as an ethnic group.
This is one of the primary politicized terms which Pastor Artur Pawlowski tends to employ whenever he wishes to describe those who are trying to shut down his church services and control his life’s work. The misuse or misapplication of this derogatory sobriquet to describe the Calgary police is therefore only apparent to those who know the real history of the 20th century and who have, through self-effort, been able to debrief themselves of the conditioning they were subjected to throughout their lifetime. Of course it must also be understood that Pastor Pawlowski is not the only person who has fallen prey to the sorcerer’s spell. Most people have, myself included.
My own life experience is a good example of what I’m talking about. I, like the bulk of Canadians born and raised in Canada, was ingrained with the negative connotations connected with the term “Nazi” from the time I first began reading comic books around the mid-1950s. War comics were the rage during WW2 and running through the 1940’s and 50’s and into the 60’s mainly. They were also one of the predominant methods by which the hidden force behind the publishing industry was able to permeate and impress up the young minds of future generations the subliminal message that Adolf Hitler was the most evil person on the planet and that the “Nazis” were the acme of blood-thirsty, violent, sadistic savagery, to be hated and avoided at all costs. While this might at first sound like I’m stretching it a bit one only need note that even today many of Canada’s mainstream newspapers ( the National Post being the best example), rarely issue an edition that doesn’t somewhere include the term “Nazi” or “neo-Nazi” or some other similar disparaging term such as “holocaust denier” or “hate monger” or “white supremacist” or “racist”: terms that that the mind automatically associates with Germany in one way or another.
This mindset continued well into my adult life, extending into the period when I began publishing my own newspaper back in June of 1998 at the age of 51. Two years later, it was still firmly entrenched in my subconscious mind and occasionally found expression within the pages of my monthly tabloid The Radical as illustrated below in the Front Page of the September, 1999 edition where I headlined an article “NATO NAZIS”.
Fortunately, for me, at one point an elderly German-Canadian reader who later became a subscriber to the paper, a person who had lived through the period of the 1930s and 1940s in National Socialist Germany was able to persuade me, through reason, common sense and example, that my views were not in keeping with the reality of the time period and was thus able to set me straight upon a path that eventually corrected all the erroneous lies that I had assimilated throughout my lifetime. The truth set me free and opened my eyes so that I was able to then see the propaganda being presented to the public by the msm for what it really was.
