#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

"The 25 points of the NSDAP Program were composed by Adolf Hitler and Anton Drexler. They were publically presented on 24 February 1920 "to a crowd of almost 2K and every single point was accepted amid jubilant approval." (Mein Kampf, Volume II, Chapter I)
"Hitler explained their purpose in the fifth chapter of the second volume of Mein Kampf: hitler.org/writings/progr…

1) Ready for a new #FalseFlag event? Here goes.

In about a week, approx. 1,500 (and growing) #CentralAmericans, most from #Honduras are ignoring #immigration checkpoints, military bases, and #police in an organized march toward the #USA #border.

#QAnon @POTUS #BorderWall
2) Despite their being in #Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them. Organized by "a group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras" (People Without Borders). Yeah right. #Fake and #staged.
