The War on “Disinformation” Is A War on Dissent

When I look back at what occurred during the so called pandemic. What was done to us all by the powers that shouldn’t be. I continue to be aghast at the fact that the heinous mass abuse goes on acknowledged and no one has been held to account for this experimentation. This is not simply a referral to the untested jab. Though that is part of the mass human experimentation. There are the lockdowns. The discrimination. The attacking of those of us who held different thoughts and ideas and simply wanted to make their own health choice. Society at this time is deeply scarred due to this mass abuse. And the perpetrators are walking around free to abuse again-

I don’t love the servitude. And I don’t love Big Brother. Do you?


We need to retire the word ‘disinformation’, the apparent dread of governments, BBC specialist reporters and NGOs everywhere. Or at the very least we need to remember what it actually means. The definition of disinformation is ‘false information which is intended to mislead’. Until recently, it was largely used to describe propaganda pumped out by hostile foreign states. But in the great disinformation panic of our time, sparked by the populist revolts of 2016 and sent into hyperdrive by the paranoia of the pandemic, the word has come to mean something very different among our elites.(And the brainwashed masses) It has come to mean inconvenient facts, or a differing opinion. Tackling disinformation is now just a euphemism for demonising and silencing dissent.

Just take a look at the latest revelations about the British state’s monitoring of lockdown sceptics during the pandemic. A new blockbuster investigation by the Telegraph and civil-liberties group Big Brother Watch details the shady activities of the Counter-Disinformation Unit (CDU), which is still operating and was set up by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), and the now-closed Rapid Response Unit (RRU), which was run out of the Cabinet Office. They compiled reports about prominent lockdown sceptics including Carl Heneghan, director of the University of Oxford’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, and Molly Kingsley, co-founder of UsForThem, which valiantly campaigned against Covid school closures. The government also employed an artificial-intelligence firm to ‘scour social-media sites’ for wrongthink.

So what did Heneghan, Kingsley et al say that so alarmed these disinfo units? For Heneghan, it was criticising the ‘rule of six’ – one of those nonsensical, back-of-a-fag-packet Covid rules which we’ve all done our best to forget. He also had the gall, as a professor of evidence-based medicine, to write an article questioning the evidence base used to justify the second national lockdown. Among Kingsley’s heresies was to tweet that it was ‘unforgivable to close schools’. This is a sincerely held ethical and moral position – one that I dare say will be vindicated in time. It is not ‘disinformation’. And yet still it was flagged

If all that wasn’t alarming enough, there is good reason to suspect that ministers went a step further and urged social-media firms to censor critics. The government has denied doing so in the case of those named in this latest investigation (both Heneghan and Kingsley have had their brushes with Big Tech censorship). But the now-defunct RRU reportedly revealed in a response to a Freedom of Information request that it had made requests for posts to be taken down. DCMS also has ‘trusted flagger’ status with the tech firms, meaning its complaints are fast-tracked.

All this is proof, if any more were needed, that the war on disinformation is really a war on dissent. Across the Western world, governments, tech oligarchs and the corporate media are taking it upon themselves to rule on what is and isn’t true, and are using this lofty, unearned status to try to ram their opponents into the ground. Information-warfare tactics, usually reserved for hostile foreign states, have been quietly turned on domestic populations. This isn’t about rescuing the truth from social-media derangement – it’s about a deranged, blundering establishment trying to take back control.

Excellent Penny!
When you re-define the meaning of words you destroy the logical syntax of language. You change the perception of all the animals in your corral. To quote Ludwig Wittgenstein, “A picture held us captive. And we could not get outside it, for it lay in our language and language seemed to repeat it to us inexorably.” The limit of our language is clearly the limit of our world as it restricts our ability to construct and interpret. A war on dissent sums it up!
