The #Notredamefire shocked the world and is a devastating loss for France. Sadly no tragedy can go unscathed from #disinfo anymore. Let's take a look at some of the bigger ones. France24.com has already compiled a pretty good list here: observers.france24.com/en/20190416-de…
While not outright #disinfo, #followthewhiteRabbit Richard Spencer, a leader in the White Nationalist movement was quick to capitalize on the #Notredamefire with this tweet.
And of course #Qanon conspiracies were all over the map. Everything from muslims to immigration to a #falseflag conspiracy to distract us from the impending arrests of Hillary Clinton, a host of "impending" imaginary #pedogate arrests and of course #fisagate
There are immigrant sleeper cells according to #Qanon and apparently Wikileaks has documentary proof that the #Notredamefire was prophesied as an operation by the Syrian government.
One of the more extensive fakes was the picture of the "laughing muslims" with the burning #notredamefire in the background. This account which is one of the #theMighty200 accounts recently featured in a Politico article pushed this fake. #disinfo #infosec
Turns out this image was completely faked / photoshopped. But it managed to be dispersed through major news outlets like Russian controlled Sputnik News. #disinfo
@AlwaysMetanoia posted this along with a link to the Politifact site which extensively debunked the "laughing muslims" photo #disinfo #notredamefire politifact.com/facebook-fact-…
A Youtube video titled "Muslims in Paris chant allahu akbar as Norte Dame cathedral burns in the background". Of course this was also fake with dubbed in audio. White rights advocate @NickGriffinBU posted this calling the video a FAKE. #disinfo #fakenews #notredamefire
Not to be out done apparently fake Russian Muslims were also chanting Allahu Akbar during the #Notredamefire . #disinfo and stoking hate is "pretty annoying"
I think this one is my favorite. And it was from another of #themighty200 #disinfo accounts. This VIDEO clip made the rounds where it was stated that someone in "Muslim garb" was slinking around in the #Notredame bell tower. #notredamefire
Turns out the person in the Video isn’t dressed in "Muslim garb" – the person is actually a firefighter. The clip was plucked from CNBC’s 3hr livestream of the #notredamefire & can be seen around the 42-minute mark & clearly shows other firefighters in the area #disinfo #fakenews
And of course why not try 2 link Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar @IlhanMN to the tragedy by combining #notredamefire #somePeopleDidSomething with an RT.com story ... for now the fire has been ruled an accident ... likely from the restoration work that was ongoing
But thankfully Rebel MEDIA is on the case and will be sending a couple of its crack investigative reporters to France to get to the bottom of the #Notredamefire and I am sure will uncover all kinds of new #qanon conspiracies #disinfo
I'll end with this note of caution that major news outlets are still being duped and/or just not being as careful as they should. Fox News inadvertently posted a tweet from an account using the White Nationalist "Pepe the Frog" meme. #notredamefire
