Just when you thought your government couldn’t hate you more, it turns out that the Department of Homeland Security has been meticulously crafting memorandums outlining ways to silence its critics with an umbrella term they’re calling MDM: Misinformation, Disinformation, and Malinformation.
The entire Newspeak bulletin can be read here, and opens this way:
“The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.”
You got that? That’s you and me they’re talking about. We are now “domestic threat actors.” Apparently noticing something that becomes common knowledge a month or two later is grounds for being labeled not only a conspiracy theorist but a domestic terrorist as well. It’s not just this thought, though; every single sentence, not just the opening salvo, reads like a Pravda’s Greatest Hits number, utilizing such phrases as “exacerbate societal friction” and “sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.”
Of course, this memo is not saying anything new. All it’s doing is saying the quiet part out loud. For two years, there has been an active campaign on the part of Big Brother, Big Tech, Big Pharma, and Big Business to control a tight narrative on Covid, from its origins to its treatments. Remember when it was considered misinformation to wonder if the virus were artificial and leaked from a lab? Remember when level-headed people once wondered if boosters would be required to be considered fully vaccinated?
