A Lesson in Soft Power: The Kaepernick Affair

kaepernick

After having a conversation with a fellow NFL player who just happens to be an ex-Green Beret, Colin Kaepernick has decided that rather than sitting down for the national anthem, that he would instead take a knee (or genuflect as religious folks might call it). This was a terrible mistake and is a result of what might turn out to be a devastating propaganda / co-optation counterattack. This posture can be construed as an act of religious devotion, submission to an authority figure, and even a militaristic combat pose.

A soldier genuflects to a battle cross memorial of a fallen comrade; a ritual display of the American warrior cult – very creepy. This position is also a standard combat pose which makes the soldier a smaller target while enabling a more stable and accurate shot as well as mobility.

More on the China-Russia joint naval exercises, and the USA as a world troublemaker

China and Russia must be much more aggressive and go on the offensive in a cautious, calculated hybrid effort to facilitate the crumbling and eventual collapse of the U.S. Empire.

More reports on the People’s Daily and Xinhua News on the China-Russia joint naval exercises in the South China Sea.

And a series of articles in the People’s Daily analyse the USA as a ‘source of turmoil in the world’. It is keen both to make a mess and to brainwash the elites in some non-Western countries. To a large degree, this is ‘a reflection of a twisted mentality of an empire moving downhill’.
