"The @WFP spokesperson told @Devex “...Some people find it inspirational & it motivates them to become committed supporters to the organisation.”

Bullshit. Donors do not find it inspirational. Their guilt, pity & shame are used like cash machines. devex.com/news/world-foo… /1
Must we say it about #povertyporn yet again?

Yes we must:

Charitable portrayals of “helping” often conjure up victimhood and passivity in order to validate the assistance being given. #devcomms #comms4dev #comms4good #fundraising /2
There is a growing awareness that these portrayals uphold - rather than counteract - historical, deeply colonial, and continually politicized notions of “the other.”

And it is not ok. /3

However, it shifts the focus back to the old narrative that Kenyans are somehow responsible for the current insecurity, and that if we "got out of Somalia", the "Banditry" would stop. It also very subtly blames the 'Somali Muslim'.

For over 56 years, those in the North Eastern Territories have been held hostage by the same idiotic thinking pushed by KEGovernment & Media (apologies @DennisOkari) that is OWNED by our political leaders..

Dear #Canada,

The media has completely abandoned you

I’m genuinely sorry if you thought they were doing journalism rather than activism

Now we all know better

They wanted @MaximeBernier demolished right out of the gate

Once upon a time there was a " $Crypto OG" named @cryptostardust. A skilled position trader of renown, he possessed an even rarer knack for cutting to the core of the social and economic #narratives behind crypto-- or what passed for them, back in 2013-14.
As fallout from a dust-up against shamed pseudoeconomist Nouriel Roubini late last year, @cryptostardust's Twitter account was banned, assumingly from Mr Roubini's disingenuously buttrekt reporting of him. Our community was chagrined.

@FreedomOutpost @NRA @Heritage @sandboxx @AmmoLand @Oathkeepers @parscale @tedcruz @LindseyGrahamSC @GOP This is where all of this mindless dribble from the left leads.
Because every idea platform they promote, eventually causes them to "eat their own" whereby they destroy themselves.

👇🧠⚡Thread on new #InformationWarfare #narratives: Many are wondering about the latest development: #Helsinkisummit, #Putin’s visit, #Trump’s open support of #Russia, etc. Is he insane? No. Russian psychological war manuals are hard to find. The sum up of the latest strategy:
A new strategy: Brainwashing Trump’s base and the rest of the society into whitewashing and normalizing Putin’s Russia. The new narrative is “Yes, Trump works with Putin. It is perfectly normal. Russia is a friend. Putin is good. Thank you, Russia, for helping Trump.”
This is how it is achieved—in the broad daylight. (The silence of the press does not help.)
