Being blamed for disseminating “conspiracy theories” and therefore being a”conspiracy theorist”, is an extraordinarily and smart tactic used by the true conspirators against the truth seekers.
It works most of the time with often more than 90% of the people. “Conspiracy theory” goes hand-in-hand with “fake news”. It also goes along with censorship by those who control the mass- and social media – Google, Youtube, Facebook… those who want to eradicate the truth from the internet under the pretext to protect people from “fake news”.
Linking somebody to a conspiracy theory, is weaponizing language. It consists in silencing the alleged “conspiracy theorist” (CT). He or she becomes speechless.
There is no immediate argument against it, even though the accuser has used no proof at all, just the unfounded term “fake news” and “conspiracy theory”. It automatically stamps the accused as ‘crazy’, or worse, as a liar – as out of his/her mind, not knowing what he/her is talking about, an unstable person, following rumors and disseminating untruths based on rumors – therefore, a very dangerous person.
In some cases, it has happened, people become so “dangerous” for the established system, that they are at least temporarily confined to a psychiatric hospital. Also, a measure of dissuasion for others to speak the truth.
The subliminal message is “rumors” or conspiracy theories are lies – and lies fly high and multiply with the broader public. These folks are to be given only the (official) “truth” – and truth comes from mainstream media (MSM), obtained from the elected – and more often than not – unelected authorities.
Unelected authorities range from the European Commission, an unelected panel that calls mostly the shots on what’s to happen in the EU – to the WEF, or World Economic Forum, a mere NGO that boasts power over world economic and political policies, way above the UN, not to mention the Washington based establishment “think tanks”.
The MSM knows best, because they get the fake and manipulated “real news” directly from the horse’s mouth – namely the official as well as self-proclaimed authorities.
