PSYWAR Provocation in Alexandria?

james-t-hodgkinson

This poor guy was probably set up and murdered by the Feds.

I’m sure everything the authorities and their MSM mouthpieces said about what happened in Alexandria, Virginia last week is completely accurate. Don’t you think so? I mean, what source could be more trustworthy? It’s not like this hasn’t happened so many times before. We don’t get to ask Mr. James T. Hodgkinson what happened so we have to rely on the police, the media and government officials. They would never lie to us, right?

Seriously though, this incident, even if – and I say IF! – it happened exactly as described by the authorities, has tremendous propaganda value for the US ruling class (and not just the Republicans). The left, or at least what passes for a “far left” on the US political spectrum, has been demonized and the American masses are being urged further rightward in their political orientation. Cui bono?

I have a narrative to tell – one that is at least as plausible as the one told by the authorities:

Mr. Hodgkinson was a political activist like many others; passionate, but alienated and tormented for his beliefs. He was put under surveillance by the feds and he was eventually deemed to be a suitable patsy for a covert psywar provocation. It was discovered that he frequented the YMCA every morning, and that it just happened to be next to the ball field where the two political factions of the one-party capitalist imperialist state play their annual charity ballgame. A perfect plan was hatched. One or two snipers were set up on rooftops or other vantage points in the vicinity. The job was to wound a few of the Republican congressmen and any cops who intervened for good measure. Also, of course, the snipers were tasked with shooting Mr. Hodgkinson dead as he entered or exited the YMCA building at his usual 7am appearance there so he couldn’t testify against the established narrative after having been set up for the crime. Next, mobilize all media assets to propagate the chosen narrative of a “mentally deranged lone gunman.”

Don’t believe this could happen? Think again. Things like this have happened many times before.

ICC Has it Out for Gaddafi’s Relatives as it Continues to Exclusively Target Africans

United States Hypocrisy

Is it really so difficult for the International Criminal Court to find any atrocities or crimes against humanity committed by state or non-state actors who don’t hail from the African continent? Furthermore, when are those who clamored for the mutilation of Muammar Gaddafi, claiming he was “attacking his own people”, going to admit that he he’d been correct all along? NATO and the US were never supporting “freedom fighters” or “the aspirations of the Libyan people” as they claim. They were supporting people like the LIFG, a group of militants who had among its membership an anti-Gaddafi dissident living in the UK named Ramadan Abedi, father of Salman Abedi who detonated a bomb at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester last month (and may have been a member of the LIFG himself). What did Europe and the United States accomplish by doing this? They turned what was once the…

Terror in Britain: What did the Prime Minister Know?

Great article by John Pilger, but I do resent him referring to Gaddafi as a “dictator” in the pejorative sense, as if every country didn’t have one or more dictators. A “pure democracy” as it is commonly understood is a myth. – PC

OffGuardian

by John Pilger

The unsayable in Britain’s general election campaign is this. The causes of the Manchester atrocity, in which 22 mostly young people were murdered by a jihadist, are being suppressed to protect the secrets of British foreign policy.

Critical questions – such as why the security service MI5 maintained terrorist “assets” in Manchester and why the government did not warn the public of the threat in their midst – remain unanswered, deflected by the promise of an internal “review”.

The alleged suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, was part of an extremist group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, that thrived in Manchester and was cultivated and used by MI5 for more than 20 years.

The LIFG is proscribed by Britain as a terrorist organisation which seeks a “hardline Islamic state” in Libya and “is part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by al-Qaida”.

The “smoking gun” is…
