Big Left – via its wholly owned subsidiaries, Big Government and Big Media – have gotten much exercised about “misinformation” lately. As distinct from “disinformation” – someone actively telling you something that is untrue – “misinformation” is someone telling you anything they disagree with.

Rightly or wrongly.

This campaign has taken many forms – a Scarlet Letter-style whisper campaign on public media, active censorship by private-sector tech companies acting in concert with Big Left.

But what’s next?

Don’t think Big Left isn’t getting ideas:

  1. Fauci, March 8, 2020:
    “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences — people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
    Was this a lie, was it the truth, was it misinfomation, or was it disinformation?

  2. Yea, this has been going on in the U.S. for years. It began with cell phones, but now, everything in your home that’s connected to the internet, is being captured. The mask mandate was instituted to allow the Democrat funded Brownshirts aka AntiFa and Black lLives Matter to cause chaos. Further, along with the 6 foot rule, the theft of the election was the true objective.

  3. As Antifa and friends have shown in various cities, destroying police equipment w/ or w/o policeme-, er, policepeople inside is now a thing. Those antennas would make for some delightful targets, but the less adept could just aim for that control box.

  4. I like to go to the gym at night, because there are never many people there at night. Last night, as I was leaving the parking lot the gym shares with an ABC store, I saw a little masklet standing in front of his global warming generator, with it’s hood up, waving a pair of jumper cables at me.

    I slowed down and opened the window…

    Me: “You need help?”
    Masklet: (muffled) “I need a jump”
    Me: “What? I can’t hear you”
    Masklet: (muffled but louder) “I need a jump!”
    Me: “I’m sorry boss, I can’t understand what you’re saying”
    Masklet: (muffled, loud and slow, shaking cables) “I..need..a..jump!!”
    Me: “Oh, OK….thought you might have needed a jump…. Have a good one” (drive off)

  5. MPR is on the case:
    But Fallis said disinformation is different. It’s something explicitly used to mislead.

    “There’s a couple of important ways in which this differs from, say, telling a lie. The information needs to be misleading, but it doesn’t have to be false,” he said. “So, there’s all sorts of ways in which people can mislead other people, even though they’re they’re very careful to make sure they’re only saying the truth, saying things that are true.”

    So the truth can be used to “mislead” people. This is a fact.
    But I wonder. If “false” is the opposite of “true,” what is the opposite of “mislead”?
    For example, a review of crime data compiled by LE shows that blacks are about 3 times as likely as white people to commit felonies. This is the truth.
    Is this number “misleading”? In what way? How is it misleading? How can you prove that is misleading?

  6. How can you prove that is misleading?

  7. The MPR article on disinformation is really weird. The quote from Don Fallis is that disinformation is “explicitly used to mislead.”
    Explicitly? Really? So someone tells you that they are misleading you?

    And from further down:
    We’ve already seen instances of disinformation about Minnesota candidates.

    A video circulated on social media that falsely claimed Minnesota U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar was in the streets protesting a visit from President Trump.

    Uhhh . . . so people were being mislead into believing Omar doesn’t like Trump? WTF?

  8. Looking at the photo, I see tactics have not changed much, just the technology. Reminds me of the giant speaker on top the shitbox Dodge in Blues Brothers.
