PROJECT CENSORED: Student shot and produced, United States of Distraction: Fighting The Fake News Invasion chronicles critical media literacy and faculty experts, students, and media makers whom provide contextual analysis for understanding the current rise of the so-called “fake news” phenomenon. In addition to deconstructing fake news, the film reminds us that this is not a new development, but rather, a form of propaganda. The interviews provided in the film offer solutions for mitigating the pernicious influence of false content on America’s democratic institutions. Edited narrated by Abby Martin.

That’s the propaganda we get a lot, and from many useful idiots on the web. They poison the discussion, when the reality is far less glossy…

Paramedics called to secondary school as pupils fall ill and collapse after being given their vaccinations

Should I feel insulted? They neglected to hound me as well. I guess I’m not reaching enough of an audience. Damn.

First name on their smear list is Dr. Francis Boyle, the human rights lawyer who has pushed for International Law to be upheld his entire career. I actually created a website for him back around the start fo the Iraq War (Crime).  I have also opposed the genocidal ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israeli aggression. I post on it regularly. It is disgusting.

Web Site Creates Blacklist of Pro-Palestinian Activists

A new website is publicizing the identities of pro-Palestinian student activists to prevent them from getting jobs after they graduate from college. But the website is keeping its own backers’ identity a secret.

“It is your duty to ensure that today’s radicals are not tomorrow’s employees,” a female narrator intones in a slick video posted to the website’s YouTube account.

A foreign power is waging economic war on targeted US students, right here in America.

Fuck “Canary Mission.”

Legal threats are the mechanism used now to control students and teachers in the nation’s schools. The government has made talking about these mandatory tests a crime, as well as a host of other offenses…

Lifting the Veil of Silence on Standardized Testing

There is a veil of secrecy over these tests and the way they are administered. And it’s no accident. The testing companies don’t want all of this to become public knowledge. They don’t want the quality or inferiority of the actual exams to be known.

And our state and federal governments are protecting them. From whom? Our teachers, parents, and students.

COLORADO HIGH SCHOOLERS ARE FIGHTING A ‘PATRIOTIC’ WHITEWASHING OF US HISTORY

“They’ll be ignorant to the facts, but they’ll also be ignorant to civic consciousness,” Robinson told me. “There are a good deal of studies that show this kind of ‘patriotism education’ is associated with xenophobia, jingoism, and authoritarian personalities. And when those youth actually confront the reality of their country’s history, there’s a shocking moment of disillusionment and radicalization.”

Israeli Facebook warriors…

Hasbara,” literally “explaining,” is the term used in Israel for government propaganda aimed at overseas audiences.

A video accompanying the Ynet report shows rows of students beavering away at computers in a hall with a sign on its door saying “Advocacy Room” in English. In Hebrew, it says “Hasbara war room.”

Last year a “covert” Israeli government initiative came to light which planned to pay students for spreading propaganda online.

“The whole point of such efforts is to look like they are unofficial, just every day people chatting online,” Israel expert Dena Shunra told The Electronic Intifada.

“But in fact, these are campaigns of organized lying, orchestrated with government-approved talking points and crowdsourced volunteers and stipend recipients,” Shunra added.

“War Room” to Sell Gaza Massacre on Facebook

Unlike those shills, no one pays me to say anything about these immoral land grabs and massacres. It’s only my conscience and ability to rationally analyze the evidence that drives this blog.

‘Empathetically Correct’ Is the New Politically Correct

A generation drowned in douche.  Their sensibilities insulated and protected from strange ideas that might challenge them.  Who will save the children from these discomforting words?

Yes, universities across our rapidly collapsing empire rush to rein in discomfort, as a few whiny little turds have complained vociferously enough to get their way. Everyone can enjoy the new “trigger warning” America, where texts that cause discomfort can be targeted and singled out.  These will be pressured out of schools in a more subtle process than bonfires in the quad.

Personally, that would make it easier for me to find the better books, but I doubt those that need to learn more about the world are going to see it that way.  We already have a nation of splintered fundamentalist groupings, extremist churches, religious insanity.  My own town is full up with so-called Christian nutjobs who wouldn’t recognize Jesus if he knocked on their front doors.

They burned Beatles records too.

Alaska phishing pupils take over classroom computers

A group of pupils at a middle school in Alaska took control of their school computers after phishing for administrator privileges.

They asked teachers at Schoenbar Middle School, for 12 to 13-year-olds, to enter admin names and passwords to accept a false software update, according to reports. The pupils used those details to access and control classmates’ PCs. Classmates then complained that their computers were not responding normally.

At least 18 pupils were involved in the phishing, which gave them control over 300 computers allocated for student use at the school in the Alaskan town of Ketchikan.
