Demnächst druckt die #Welt sicherlich auch einfach mal eine Rede von #Kyrill I. ab.

Religiöser Extremismus Hand in Hand mit politischem Aktivismus. /TN
#Springer-Chef Matthias #Döpfner erklärt sich für den unsäglichen #WELT-Gastbeitrag zur #Maus - dessen Idee sei "das Spektrum des Sagbaren bis an die Grenzen auszuloten und auf diese Weise Debatten anzustoßen".
Uff, was für eine Bankrotterklärung. /MS

On 9/11/16 I was assigned to cover the 9/11 memorial service for #breitbart news. During the ceremony @hillaryclinton passed out and was removed quickly. For over two hours reporters from various outlets refused to report anything had happened because they “couldn’t…

US Libertarian billionaires pay #Spiked to divide UK society.

The irresponsible cranks at Spiked pretend they're for "greater freedom & democracy", but NOT ONCE have they mentioned the anti-freedom & anti-democracy 'Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill'.

#PoliceCrackdownBill
Like #Breitbart, EVERY DAY they puke out divisive 'culture war' stories about 'dangerous cultural Marxists', 'the death of free speech', or how 'anti-racists are the REAL racists'.

It's pathetic & relentless. & it is paid simply to #divide voters, & thus help their rich funders.
A 2018 investigation revealed #Spiked received at least $300,000 between 2015 & 2018 from the Koch brothers — the right-wing libertarian US oil billionaires who have been at the heart of climate change denial in the USA.

#Spiked ARE 'the thought police'.

No-one has been "banned", & it's nothing to do with our "education system".

The irony of dangerous extremist Nigel Farage - our very own shit-stirring 21st century Oswald Mosely - describing a decision taken BY STUDENTS to drop Winston Churchill as a house name as "dangerous". Image
LIAR Nigel Farage has used racism, xenophobia, sexism & Islamophobia to stir up division, has toxic connections to extreme & far-right figures across the world, & Thatcherite beliefs that he has tried to hide from communities in former industrial towns.

hopenothate.org.uk/2019/11/15/who…
Farage on LBC Radio, 2014: “I was asked if a group of Romanian men moved in next to you, would you be concerned? And if you lived in London, I think you would be”. Asked whether he would object to living next door to German children, he replied “You know what the difference is”.

Reading #Breitbart (& Spiked, InfoWars etc)

Media texts are a form of discourse that are not simply reflective of reality, but a primary vehicle for the articulation & reproduction of dominant structures of power.

Once you see this, you can't unsee it.

tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…
Breitbart's (& in the UK, Spiked's) "discourse of binary opposition focused on ‘us versus them’ dyads that use precisely the language of the culture wars of the 1980s & 1990s, is sufficient to demonstrate the persistence of culture wars discourse in contemporary media discourse."
Through their coverage of news & politics, they create "a self-referential ‘communication world’ in which certain ‘truths’ about the binary nature of issues are parsed as an agonistic struggle between the ‘us’ of (common sense) conservatism & the ‘they’ of (woke) ‘Liberalism’."

Days after @realDonaldTrump won the 2016 election, activists associated with the white nationalist website VDARE solicited resumes from right-wing writers, including former #Breitbart editor Katie McHugh, who leaked those emails to us.

Hatewatch reporters @MichaelEHayden and @hannahgais have reported previously on the ties between the #TrumpAdministration and the far-right, including hate groups like VDARE. splcenter.org/fighting-hate/…
Last fall, using 900+ emails leaked by Katie McHugh, @MichaelEHayden broke the news that White House senior adviser #StephenMiller had ties to VDARE and sought to shape media narratives about the 2016 presidential campaign and immigration. Read more: splcenter.org/stephen-miller…

"Die New Yorker Staatsanwaltschaft wirft ihm [Steve #Bannon] und drei weiteren Beschuldigten vor, Geld abgezweigt zu haben aus einer Online-Spendenaktion für den Bau einer Mauer an der Grenze zu Mexiko."

Wer für den Bau einer Mauer spendet, ist schon selten dämlich.
Und was macht Oliver #Flesch daraus?

"Was da wohl wirklich dahintersteckt"

"[...] wir befürchten, hier soll einer unser besten Kämpfer aus dem Verkehr gezogen werden." Image
Bannon leitete von 2012 - 2016 #Breitbart (eine rechte Nachrichtenseite in den USA), die öfters mit zweifelhaften Schlagzeilen auf sich aufmerksam machte.

Wie z.B. diese über Lukas #Podolski:

DESinformação sobre o Covid 19

O site #Breitbart é um desses veículos de desinformação, cujo objetivo é político-cultural. Teve papel ativo na eleição de #Trump e se notabiliza por disseminar #teoriasconspiratórias. Cresceu muito, mas perdeu espaço com o movimento de+
desmonetização (“defund”), #SleepingGiants (tem a versão brasileira, o #SleepingGiantsBrasil). Recentemente, voltou à tona, a teoria de que o #Covid19 teria sido criado em laboratórios, com macacos. Até aí, normal, "normalmente bizarro", para os nossos tempos, mas quando uma+
do porte da #Fox dá voz a um desses conspiracionistas, uma mensagem no #Facebook tem 14.000.000 de visualizações e o presidente Trump compartilha uma delas, é porque estamos perdendo uma guerra pela informação.
Peço que compartilhem todas as mensagens desmistificadoras de boatos+

Why many educated people believe a propaganda student with a few US doctors recruited by #Breitbart and #Trump is beyond me. There are scientific studies out there on #Hydroxychloroquine , like this one. It is useless against people sick with #COVID19 - recoverytrial.net/news/statement… Image
"A total of 1542 patients were randomised to hydroxychloroquine and compared with 3132 patients randomised to usual care alone. There was no significant difference in the primary endpoint of 28-day mortality"
So US doctors use anti-malarials and anti-bacterials against the #virus. Wonderful. The #Cubans use anti-virals, immunotherapy and anti-inflammatories. Image

Today the @washingtonpost released an extremely scary video that illustrates how #FoxNews downplayed the early days of the #Covid19 crisis.

Right now it’s clearer than ever that #FoxNewsLies are powerful, toxic and dangerous.

And it’s time to put a stop to it.

➡️THREAD—

How did we get here? First, Fox News is a pro-Trump propaganda machine. They’ve spent years telling viewers that the “deep state” is out to get Trump, and they eagerly painted #covid19 as just the latest attack.

2
But #FoxNews and others like them were wrong. The #coronavirus is a deadly and highly contagious global pandemic, and their downplaying of the virus as an attempt to support Trump will quite literally cost many lives.

@Mimirocah1 My theory is it is Rebekah #Mercer. The 'senior official' is reportedly #Bannon. #Mercer brought Bannon into the Trump campaign/admin. Her #CambridgeAnalytica also reached out to #Wikileaks. She is at the center of all this, and if she does not get caught our problems continue:
@Mimirocah1 Note: #Bannon was bankrolled by the #Mercers. He ran #Breitbart for them/sat on CA board. #Mercer also brought #Kellyanne into the campaign. #Bolton was her 1st choice for secretary of state. #Mercers supported Cruz, then switched horses. Trump: just their useful fool.

<Time for a Bannon thread> thanks to @arapaho415 for sending this great 2015 profile on Steve and Breitbart. I had not read this before and recommend it. 1/7 @traciemac_Bmore
Back in 2015 ... @traciemac_Bmore there’s Steve in his single shirt days. 2/7
Steve wasn’t hiding his self appointed role as propagandist-in-chief for the Trump conspiracy. Right, badger? 3/7. @traciemac_Bmore
