by Bill Noxid
(Summary and excerpts)
In an impressively large and detailed analysis of social media communications, their echoes in the mainstream media (MSM) and the subsequent official/governmental position on what he concludes was a manufactured “event,” Bill Noxid sets out to show just how the false perception was created and propagated worldwide.
The incredibly speedy sequence of events was not a spontaneous outburst of global concern for “Iranian students” and their hopes vis-à-vis the presidential elections in Iran, shows Noxid, but was a fake media tsunami engineered by a group of technologically sophisticated professionals aided by MSM.
He further states that the Iranian election “event” is the prototype operation of what later surged as “Arab Spring” and the Occupy Movement, joined by many unsuspecting and well-intentioned water carriers.
Noxid makes his demonstration with a detailed and reasoned analysis of many twitters whose objective, synchronized and centralized message, and “branding” all show them to be a campaign of creating a false perception, appealing to the people’s human rights sympathies and supporting the goal of multinational intervention in Iran, regime change and elimination of Ahmadinejad.
The platform of this operation was twitter, Facebook and youtube and the rapid dissemination of this disinformation was achieved through the MSM network, which reported it without any support, confirmation or vetting.
The author shows how he identified twitterers who changed identity (presumably to appear more numerous), demonstrates the “premature” messaging (i.e., twitters under the name IRANRIGGEDELECT on the very day of the election before votes were tallied), and he also shows the central coordination evident in the wording of the false messages stressing urgency (“people are dying”, Mousavi won but he was robbed of his victory by rigged elections), and in the symbols used (all using the same color icons, soon changing their time zones to Tehran time to appear to be writing from there), the “V” symbol (later to be also used by the “Arab Spring” and Occupy), etc.
Noxid does not spell out who these operatives might have been and fromwhere they were twittering from but he alludes to it only indirectly by first establishing that they could not be Americans because no American would say, as one did, on the very same day when Obama was elected President: “stfu about Obama” because you have to “help the people of Iran overcome dictatorship.” It was not that important for Americans to switch attention from their own to a distant land’s election. Second, he asks Cui Bono? Third, he shows how a clever attempt was made to mask the involvement of the real perpetrators by throwing suspicion on US Agencies (see the dissemination of the declassified US Covert Operations Training Manual).
Again, cui bono?
The timing problem—twittering about elections being rigged before the results were even tallied—is somewhat reminiscent of the BBC report talking about the fall of Building #7 about 20 minutes before it fell “of its accord.”
Many of the twitter/Facebook accounts, Nozid says, were created only days before or after the June 12 election. The alternative explanation would be that all those “Iranian students” had gone without before, but suddenly sensing the need, all became wired, opened accounts and started working in an enormous and incredibly well coordinated effort.
These messages establish a false reality upon which they build talking points as if they are a cohesive, well-led group, and all that from the very day of the election, before election results were known. Furthermore, their messages inundated the MSM as if they were vetted reports from known and trustworthy journalists on the scene.
The same MO can be seen in all of Arab Spring fabrications, as were seen in the “dictator violence” slogans used prior to invasions and are seen now in the campaign against the Syrian government.
No spontaneous grassroots event is characterized by the global display of unity of message, uniformity of style in the message and technical ability, to say nothing about being prescient, and all that from day one.
“Beneath the psyop deceptions of ‘free speech and peaceful protest.’ “ says Nozid, “lies sinister covert destabilization and disinformation tactics.”[emphasis added]
Again, more directly, Noxid asks: “Who benefits from all these disasters, from “pitting brown against brown,” from Islamophobia, and “who benefits from the US and NATO being seen as the source of Arab Spring invasions, while the actual handlers manufacture a new conflict every day?” [emphasis added]
“I no longer believe, “ concludes Noxid, “any of these so-called terror groups that are presented for us to fear are any more ‘real’ than the Basiji/Hezbollah/Hamas invention that was claimed to be beating Iranian students before the election was even over….. all terrorism on this planet is Puppet Theater, and the puppeteers have gotten quite adept at it.”
His plea is, “Fear is not an acceptable excuse anymore. Anybody think this global terrorism is going to just ‘go away’? What’s your plan? Wait it out?”
“The only choice you have is whether you’re in this fight, or victim of it. This isn’t the movies, this is: Life on Earth…. You’re a puppet on a string whether you understand it or not. The only question is if you’re going to wake from the Matrix, and have the courage to stand up for yourself.”
