I’ve had plenty of good faith engagement with my assertion that the outrage and amplification of Kiddie Amin merely plays into his hands and serves as a very effective marketing campaign for his interests.
I think it’s valuable to discuss what the reaction should look like. 🧵
Let’s deal with the most common objection;
“You can’t ignore this kind of behaviour cf. National Socialist Germany”
Yeah I agree. It’s not about ignoring but rather about moderating response and controlling narrative.

Human attention span together with the nature of time means that the contemporary relevance of any event has a finite limitation.
There are many recent examples of this.
2 years later video evidence shows the Jan 6 riots at the Capitol were not what we were told they were. 🧵
It doesn’t matter though because enough people were fooled on the day, and in the weeks which followed. The goal of making people believe that this was a seminal event has been achieved and regardless of any evidence to the contrary now, a significant portion of the US and the

There is a very weird view amongst some pandemic skeptics (the group of people right about almost everything covid related) that believing a virus escaped a lab following gain of function testing makes you a fool. There are so many inconsistencies in this thinking. 🧵
Firstly if you don’t believe the overwhelming evidence of a lab leak which those in power across politics, science, and the media have tried to hide for 3 years then you assumptively believe those same people including Fauci who said this was a natural event.

Francis Harris, @fharris2011, chose to pick a fight this evening because I noted that those in power seem to want anything but peace as an outcome to the war in Ukraine.
Why would a former deputy editor at The @Telegraph behave like this?
So I went digging. 🧵
Mr Harris is now the “Managing Editor” at CEPA.
What is CEPA you ask?
Well it’s the Centre for European Policy Analysis of course.
Sounds innocuous enough, right?
Yeah I thought so too, and then I went to have a look at their funders.

Soros went looking for a fight with India and they called him out for exactly what he is. Superb work by Indian authorities.
This is what Soros said after his surrogates and “non profits” have been agitating against the successful conservative Indian Government openly for months, and more clandestinely for years.

If the media had spent time rallying around any party which wasn’t the ANC and defending the leaders of that party like they have the ANC then we wouldn’t be in this mess.
Instead they defended the ANC at every turn and bolstered non issues about the opposition into scandals.
A political party simply can not rise to power or retain power without the support of the fourth estate - the media.
This is why most governments like ours ban anyone who speaks against their interests.
Fortunately for the ANC nobody in SA mainstream media has ever done so.

Some of the best parts of Cape Town have become homeless encampments. It’s disgusting.
During covid the DA Government there claimed that they couldn’t do anything about it because the SoD regs prevented evicting people.
Now it’s claimed that it can’t be done because…
…every time they try and remove these squatters some bleeding hearts in Fresnaye and surrounds interdict them from doing so.
And as such the DA throws their hands in the air and says ‘oh well, there’s nothing we can do’.
Except there is.

Since I’m one of the only journalists not acting as a stenographer for the State let me explain what happens next on covid; 🧵
Today we’ve been told that our overlords aren’t introducing new measures to combat “the Kraken” (you honestly couldn’t make this up).
Instead they’ll be trying to increase vaccination and booster rates even though true vaccination rates are 30% or less, and booster rates are 6% for the initial one and less than 1% for subsequent shots.
That means that almost nobody including Government officials have had them.

All information operations only need to keep 50% plus 1 believing in whatever they’re spewing. All left wing power structures from the Biden administration to the New York Times know this. As long as a majority believe your lies you can literally sell anything to them. 🧵
In this context truth is essentially irrelevant because it does not override belief, and it could only do so if it came from enough of the ‘trusted’ sources who peddled the lie in the first place. This is why the Left dominates media and why they’ve infiltrated social media.

The sudden obsession with pitbulls in the media is an excellent demonstration of narrative. Actual issue about the breed aside for a moment, 2022 is not the year they went feral. These dogs have been mauling and killing people for decades but suddenly there’s tons of coverage. 🧵
Instead the media follows trends. Sometimes these come from their funders, sometimes these come from their editors, and occasionally these come from the public. This then turns into a self fulfilling confirmation bias loop in which more reporting leads to more interest.

This country is so dumb.
The President, a billionaire via legalized corruption, is going to resign because he had a few million dollars in foreign currency lying around on his private game farm.
Nobody called for his resignation over a hundred far worse things. 🤡🌍
The country has an electricity crisis which has lasted more than a decade.
Cyril Ramaphosa presided over this.
Nobody called for his resignation.

You can be angry all you like about someone pointing out simple causation folks, but it won’t change reality.
When a decision is made which collapses a fragile economy there will be consequences. In South Africa that decision was lockdown and one of those consequences is crime.
You can’t always be reactive otherwise you’re always suffering the consequences of your decisions or those of others.
Opposing lockdown was a no brainer because it was obvious that the downstream effects would be horrific - unemployment, crime, disease, death etc.

Your account posted child porn. Nobody just hacks your account. That’s not how any of this works. If you don’t have two factor authentication enabled then a hacker needed to either guess or phish your password. If this happened they immediately change your password once in. 🧵
This means that you would no longer have been in control of your account in which case you would have needed to contact Twitter in an attempt for them to lock the account and verify you as the rightful owner. This takes days if possible at all. By your own admission you logged

Social distancing was completely made up based on droplet spread studies mainly of TB. These show that for droplet spread diseases (of which covid is not one) the droplets usually travel around 50cm. UK authorities doubled that up to 1 metre just to be ‘safe’. US authorities 🧵
US authorities don’t work with the metric system so 1 metre quickly became 3 feet, but that’s only 91cm so to be ‘safe’ they doubled it to 6 feet (183cm). UK and European authorities didn’t want to be out of step with the Americans so they changed their guidelines to 1.5 - 2m.

In contact with several people globally who have been attacked, censored, suspended, and even dismissed for calling covid policies out for the bullshit that they are.
In many cases these people have been reported to various governing bodies by Branch Covidians intent on 🧵
ruining their careers or rendering them jobless. This is of course unsurprising because anyone who supported the human rights abuses which were lockdowns isn’t beyond all kinds of evil.
However what is humorous has been the findings of these organisations against truth tellers.

The virus which causes covid came from a lab performing gain of function research.
This has been known by senior scientists since February 2020 but for political and financial reasons has been fraudulently called a debunked conspiracy theory.
GoF research continues unabated. 🧵
That is to say that whatever your view on covid, the subsequent policies, and all of the proposed treatments, we still have not dealt with the root cause of this pandemic.
The system errors which allowed a deadly virus to escape a laboratory and infect the planet still exist.

So you want another State of Disaster to be declared over energy supply?
Ok, let’s play this out.
The communist National Command Council, which has still not been dissolved, is fully in charge again.
They quickly rediscover and misinterpret supply and demand again. 🧵
NDZ or some other communist figures out that we can’t produce enough electricity to meet demand.
So like all communists before them they ration supply.
This will probably be sold as follows; lack of power leads to increases in crime so please stay home and stay safe.

Democrats seem obsessed with claiming that ectopic pregnancies are somehow like normal pregnancies and therefore that their removal is tantamount to abortion.
Of course it’s not surprising seeing Democrats refusing to ‘follow the science’ but that’s not at all how this works.
It’s weird though that they choose to pick such an arbitrary pathology which has nothing to do with normal pregnancy and which isn’t dealt with in any way resembling an abortion, instead of just defending the late term abortion they advocate for and celebrate in States like NY.

Things we did which you might want to forget but I won’t let you forget for as long as I live: 🧵
- denied dying people access to their relatives and vice versa, condemning them to a lonely death
- canceled elective surgeries including those to diagnose cancer & prevent disease
- prevented children from attending school thus denying them the opportunity to learn and grow
- separated families for months or even years at a time under the banner of “safety”
- created the single biggest mental health crisis in history with a litany of associated suicides

The CCMA has heard a case regarding a mandatory covid vaccination policy, and has ruled against the company, and in favour of the dismissed employee who refused to be vaccinated. This particular CCMA ruling is very well written. 🧵
The company in question, Baroque Medical, enforced a mandatory vaccine policy across its company. Four employees refused vaccination and all of their requests for exemption were rejected. Their services were all apparently terminated as a result.

I can assure you that I actually despise Cyril for real crimes, like the human rights abuses he inflicted on the entire country over the past 2 years, but it’s hard to see what exactly the big freak out is over the robbery which took place at his farm. 🧵
Firstly he was robbed. Someone literally broke into one of his homes and stole his property. He is the victim here.
‘Ok, but they stole something he shouldn’t have had’ you say. So you’re upset that a billionaire has a few million dollars lying around which he hasn’t declared?
