The political right is an anti-democratic movement. They collude, network, share donors, strategies, dirty tricks, ways to cheat, propaganda/disinformation networks, lies. Stephen Harper’s #IDU co-chair, indicted in Georgia in Trump/#GOP attempts to overthrow democracy. #cdnpoli
These are hilarious. Using AI, @Rupublicans on #instagram, put some familiar #Republicans in #drag.
1. Miss Misinformation, aka Bombshell Bannon. “Serving washed-up media mogul realness”. #Rupublicans 2. Cruzella DeVille, “serving homophobic realness” #Rupublicans

The attempts to bring down this federal government have been relentless. Day by day, one op after another. The continuous feeding of bad faith reporting & propaganda in #cdnmedia. All with the aim of installing the #CPC. A manifestly unfit party & leader who courts RW extremists
The efforts to topple this gov’t, of course, includes FI. Threat activity (esp online) from 🇷🇺🇨🇳, in addition to the 🇺🇸 RW operations of billionaire-backed networks like the Koch Network & others. But also Saudi & Iranian operations, have all played a part. #cdnpoli#CdnNatSec
So of course #NationalPost publishes an article by a white Conservative who absolutely mischaracterizes what people are saying. NO ONE is saying not to investigate lest it inflame anti-Asian hate. We are saying this op exploits anti-Asian hate. #CdnMediaFailed#cdnpoli
I’m re-upping some recent 🧵 in light of more reckless reporting from Sam Cooper @globalnews. Cooper’s recent piece does not cite A SINGLE actionable piece of evidence. Nor is there ANY mention of the degree of confidence of the intelligence or whether it had even been assessed.
2 leakers disseminate selected intelligence of unknown confidence to Fife & Cooper, 2 reporters the leakers knew would do exactly what was predicable. The groupthink inability to employ critical reasoning from within #CdnMediaFailed, ensued. #cdnpoli
20 years ago, Colin Powell addressed the UN Security Council to make a case for war. Serving as the frontman for Bush’s admin, to convince the world of the dangers of Iraq & WMDs.
Powell believed what he was saying, based on what? Intelligence provided to him #Cdnpoli#CdnNatSec
That faulty intelligence had been assessed, & yet, it was a lie that had catastrophic effects on the world. Cost over $1.2 T 💵. A million lives lost.
Today in 🇨🇦 we have a far less catastrophic, yet still important, peddling of intelligence - of unknown confidence. #CdnNatSec

So yesterday I was fed a story in my news app that enraged me. #Cdnmedia is in a crisis. The rank inability to employ logical reasoning, the pushing of a narrative for political ends, is not reporting. It is propaganda & it misinforms the public, not the opposite. #cdnpoli
It was more shockingly poor reporting on Chinese interference, implying a connection where no factual evidence is provided. Merely a faulty attempt to draw conclusions without substantiating anything. Just garbage reporting. #CdnmediFailed#cdnpoli

Everything Polievre does is bad faith. He is the most unfit opposition leader in Canadian history, Even more than the other astoundingly unfit choices like Scheer. He represents the dangerous & malicious degradation of the political right & its threat to democracy. #cdnpoli@CTVNews’ promotion of #NevrePoilievre was on full display last night immediately following the Oscars, where PP was featured off the top implying Trudeau is responsible for airport delays 🤦♀️. The framing of political hit job stories in #cdnmedia isn’t news & it’s concerning.

I’m getting sick of this propaganda amplified on the left. Imagining a dictator committing genocide & war crimes will happily cooperate if just allowed to keep some of the invaded territory, is nonsense. Peak Neville Chamberlain, only worse. We’ve seen how this plays out #Ukraine
It is also utter nonsense that Putin launched his genocidal war because “NATO”. This is a version of the excuses made for rapists. Coming up with all manner of ways to muddy who is to blame. Russia is responsible for its murderous acts, not counties looking to protect themselves.

A reality we all need to wake up to. We’re living in an information war that’s only going to accelerate. 🇨🇳,🇷🇺 & the political right, along with other malign actors, are waging this war. 🇨🇦 has a naive, gullible &/or complicit #cdnmedia that far too often, falls for #InfoOps.
Link to the NYT article nytimes.com/2023/02/07/tec….
1. Pulling together my recent🧵s on this latest #Cdnmedia China saga that has much broader implications re #CdnNatSec, political operatives, breaking the law to leak to journalists with political motives.
Fife implied China had the ability to choose 🇨🇦’s government right down to whether majority or minority. Utterly reckless nonsense. Of course, Fife offered not one single shred of factual evidence. #Cdnpoli#CdnMediaFailed
Something else in this CSIS/Fife story, doesn’t pass the smell test & once again, demonstrates #CdnMediaFailed. Who keeps being interviewed by @globalnews & others? None other than Richard Fadden. The former Harper appointee of @csiscanada, later Harper NatSec advisor. #cdnpoli
Richard Fadden was also Harper’s Deputy Minister of National Defence from 2013 to 2015. He was also Harper’s Associate Secretary to the Cabinet.
Fadden was also Harper’s Deputy Minister of Citizenship & Immigration Canada from 2006 to 2009. #cdnpoli#CdnNatSec

I very much agree with this important point from Stephanie Carvin. Something is off here. Also, what’s behind resurfacing a nearly 3.5 year old allegation? This doesn’t pass the smell test for me. #cdnpoli#CdnNatSec#cdnmedia@csiscanada
Dong defeated current #CPC comms director, Sarah Fisher, in the 2019 election in question. You may know Fischer from her vocal support of the #FluTruxKlan destabilization operation that cost 🇨🇦 billions & provided a-bombs of disinformation to the political right, including 🇷🇺&🇨🇳.

There’s a saying in Germany: (paraphrasing) If you see a Nazi sitting at a table with 10 people, you’re looking at a table of 11 Nazis.
Elon Musk is seriously the stupidest man alive. Just a sociopathic conman who amplifies the most heinous garbage & adds to it by lying. NO, Alexander was NOT “put in jail”. He’s a little fascist who disrupted everyone else’s learning with his entitlement & bigotry. #cdnpoli
If you missed the story, entitled little fascist, Josh Alexander, created multiple disturbances in his school using trans kids as his punching bag & publicity stunt opportunity. Disinfo media & accounts then repeated the propaganda to further scapegoat trans. #cdnpoli#CdnDisinfo
Annnd here we have the typical #NevrePoilievre & his comms team, trying to have it both ways. Neo-Nazi (& pro-Putin disinformationist) Christine Anderson, supports & meets with the same people in 🇨🇦 that Polievre boosted. #FreeDumbConvoy#cdnpoli
In a July video, Christine Anderson made reference to #NevrePoilievre being called “a terrorist” (he wasn’t called that, but Anderson is incapable of avoiding lying) for bringing the convoy occupationists, coffee.
#CPC members have supported & fuelled far right extremists.

Why is far right German member of European Parliament & Russian asset, Christine Anderson, posting pictures of herself with Tamara Lich & #JCCF’s Keith Wilson yesterday?
Interesting to note, Lich helped start #WEXIT. The global far right is Putin’s ace in the hole. #cdnpoli
Here’s Christine Anderson with her good friend, #MarineLePen.
