Skip to comments.Are we watching a real life Wag The Dog?

I feel like I am watching a version of the movie Wag the Dog.
In the movie it looks like an election in a few weeks is going to be lost.
A massive media campaign about a fake war in Albania is used to sway the public. The public is easily deceived by an orchestrated false narrative and the election is won.
This is almost exactly what is happening today.
The current false narrative is about fake devises that look like crude pipe bombs and are sent to leading Democrats and actor Robert DeNiro. The person identified as the "bomber" is an ex male stripper. He is bankrupt and has been living in his van. He has a history of criminal activities and an extensive arrest record.
Almost on cue the Democrats turn on a dime and stop encouraging violence. They parrot talking points claiming that Trump and his supporters are violent and that Democrats and the media are virtuous victims.
"For now hold the bag of chips, it's a placeholder for later, when we get you a calico cat..."
No one buys it, but most folks just are not weighing in on the tar baby.
We are winning.
Maxine has not yet changed, but yes, the whole episode seems to be rehearsed and organized. I don’t think such theater will work the same as it would have even ten years ago.
People are more cynical now regarding the Democrat Party.
We have seen them advocate or encourage violence toward conservatives. Less people are being fooled.
You just can't accept that someone wearing a MAGA hat and has some stickers can't be a crazy criminal idiot so you have to concoct conspiracy theories.
"An athlete..! No, a MUSCLEMAN..! NO..! A muscleman STRIPPER Trump fan..! No, better..!! Wait, I got it..! A muscleman, stripper, INDIAN Trump fan..!!
False flags all the time.
And no, I don’t get why the Trump admin after two years hasn’t exposed any of them.
(The argument is need to clear the criminals at the top of the DoJ, FBI, CIA, etc., but that should have been done to start.)
That means the story did not fly for probably 50% of the American electorate, and the Media have re-Kavanaughed themselves with their incredibly biased reporting.
No one believes them now, even the leftist Rats that vote Democrat.
I doubt that this will affect the election much.
"You're SCARED..! You cringe because you hear machine-gun fire..! Don't worry about it, we'll dub it in...Fred can you give me some heavy scotacco, maybe like a Ma-Deuce..? Yeah, good. And some intermittant explosions, not too many...? Good! Now, 'Scared Girl Crosses Street Under Sniper Fire'....ACTION..!"
And evil barbarian, with a wrench in his pocket!
We can thank Hollywood for occasionally making movies that come close to the truth about how the media and Hollywood and national politics actually work. Wag the Dog, is one of those movies. And yes, this latest fake pipe bomb story has every sign of being a completely choreographed false flag operation.
People use to depend on the news for unbiased and impartial reporting.
When they strayed from the center and became nothing but the propaganda arm of the Demograts. They still believe that people are listening to them. Anyone with a resonable thought process can see right through their smoke and mirrors and aren’t buying it anymore. Maybe that’s why they want everyone to get an education in their system of indoctrination.
At some point the coincidences seem beyond belief.
Partisan Media Shills LIE, because they are A) regurgitating DNC talking points, and B) they are LIARS.
American voters are not that stupid. Of course you have the Marxists who create the propaganda and their lemmings play their roles. If anything, it backfires on them in time, as the truths are exposed.
Of course media takes their cue from the DemonRats and ignores bad press for liberals and can't talk enough about some loon living in a van who sends out non-operational bombs.
It's what the MSM does. They are fake news, not real reporters and they are un-American to their very soul.
There was no internet in the movie. The MSM didn’t control the vernacular.
It’s why we actually see things like this now:
Back in the day nobody would have seen this, and Dan Rather would still be respected.
"...a VAN. Like, uh....from The A-Team. It's, uh..."
his eyes go to his nearby assistant.
"Midnight black..! No, wait..! WHITE..! Pure white, like snow..! Super generic, like a honky would have..! And, the van is somehow SPCECIAL. It's got....uh..."
[starts snapping his fingers, his eyes go up to attentive nearby assistant]
"....a bumper sticker..?"
"A bumper sticker..! Yes..! No..! No, wait, it has 20 bumper stickers..! NO..! It has a whole collage of whacko PHOTOS SLOGANS..! A collage of them in back. NO...! EVERY WINDOW is blotted out with whacko slogans..!!"
