OWS.Cointelpro? Endgame De-stabilization? You decide.Submitted by FedupExpression on Tue, 11/08/2011 - 01:17
Excellent 30 minute examination of the history and personalities of these operations.
We are being played by these people again. It amazes me that after all of these years being aware of this activity and these people pushing buttons around the world, after all of our experience being on the receiving end of these operations as Ron Paul supporters, and given that we have been targeted by this crap with vigor over the last few years to the point that we are generically included in MIAC reports as potential domestic terrorists, we are once again being targeted for internal destabilization and mission re-direction by spammers from the OWS op.
That we must, on a daily bases revel in the incessant Cointelpro spam of one of this operation's apparatchiks here on the Daily Paul without reprieve from the Mods is a sad state of affairs.
To use our liberty ideology against us, specifically our "big tent" inclusive attitude, our inherent knee-jerk defense of individual opinion and freedom of speech, is probably the cruelest thing about the operation they are running on us. They must stand around the water cooler and chuckle about it all.
Of course, I don't make the rules around here, and while censorship is hardly something I search for in life, fairness and honesty are things that are very important to me and having given these people their soapbox ad nauseam, I am hoping for a time when we can get back to the business at hand...without the distractions...or the nails that are being tossed under our tires.
I, and many other veterans here, have requested, time and again the proof of what this Armyfree spammer keeps telling us...that OWS is not a leftist/socialist movement but instead, a diverse group of people who want what we want and that the whole "socialist" thing is "Neo-Con Propaganda. NEVER does he provide proof for his position...instead he ignores the calls for proof as he repeats the same lies and inanities before reverting to calling long-time DP members and well known Paul activists...Neo-Cons and cowards.
Acting on his prodding, I have done my own investigation into this and I am wholly convinced that the espoused "goals" of OWS are as far away from ours as one can get...and still have any semblance of commonality...our shared understanding of SOME causal effects. Instead of finding "proof" that Armyfree was too lazy to provide, I found "proof" that what we are being told is Neo-Con Propaganda is, in truth...truth...so say my eyes and quite discerning brain.
What truly disturbs me...and what should disturb anyone trying to get Ron Paul through to the Republican nomination is the prolific littering of the thread list here to make it look like the Dailypaul could double as the DailyOWS to the casual...or specifically directed inquisitive Republican visitor.
I don't know about everyone else here, but I am concentrating on the Republican Primary. In so doing, it has been my habit to direct inquisitive, yet still traumatized Republicans to this site as a place to learn about Ron Paul, his ideology and platform and why we support Ron.
Sometimes trying to turn these people is a balancing act, one performed at the tips of two crossed fingers. While waking others (especially older people) can be difficult enough, it becomes doubly difficult to do this when the thread list has OWS spammer puke dripping all over it. Of course if one reads the threads, they'd see true Ron Paul supporters battling with the lying incredibly obtuse spammer(s)...but many won't read the threads...they'll just read into them and simply click their way out of here.
During the interim years, between this election and last, we have discussed a myriad of topics, sometimes to the chagrin of some of the members...911 Truth comes to mind. And I never had a problem with this...not because I am a non-believer in the government story...but because the timing of these discussions was somewhat outside of the election cycle and I didn't really see them as anathema to our stated goals or really doing anything to harm Ron or his chances...especially as we were then a fringe minority with little hope of success and the teeming masses were not yet in blame/fix mode. So, such inane, or maybe titillating, discussion was presented to a more "limited" already committed audience here at the Daily Paul.
Now it's 2011 and things are Vastly different. We are no longer "Bat-shit-crazy" folk without a prayer. We are now a force to be reckoned with and more and more are letting down their guards each and every day. When they do deign to give Ron Paul a look see, they often end up here...and maybe nervously so as they are delving into some thing akin to the black arts by smacking their long held belief system with a sledgehammer marked with the eye of a Newt...something we are all won't to do and something that we all had to do at some point to be regulars here now.
What happens to the Registered Republican lady who comes here and finds "those socialist protesters" capitalizing the thread list and posting all over the place with their inane suppositions and postulations that are completely false if not intellectually dishonest in how they portray Dr. Paul as supportive of all of this.
It's hard enough getting people to think without giving timid drowsy Republicans an excuse to "go no further". It is my hope that this will end, and the efficacious tool that the DailyPaul has always been will return to its former self. Tolerance used to have its limits around here...which wasn't so bad after all...
