The other side of Un-truth Aug. 20th, 2014 @ 03:25 pm
We've all heard of Putin's propaganda machine, the mighty RT, Pravda and the rest. It's all true, Russia is trying very hard to swing hearts and minds into its direction, and for a reason. "The first casualty of war is truth", as Aeschylus famously said.

Meanwhile, there's the other side of Un-truth, our very own Western brand of disinformation. Our media have been preaching to the choir pretty hard, and brainwashing us into supporting the particular agenda of our particular leaders. Here are some examples, as GlobalResearch summarizes.

Examples of blatant, delicious un-truths at our side of reality...

Recep Tayyip Erdogan wins Turkish presidential election

On election night, Erdogan pointed out in his speech that he'll be president of all Turks. That is, of those 48% who didn't vote for him, too. That's a timely promise, since he was often being accused of only favoring his base with his policies, and turning his back on the rest. Well, now the first commitment he did was to "a new societal accord". And, well, constitutional changes of course. Because he wants to change the political structure of the country, and establish a US-style presidential system, where the most important prerogatives will belong to... him, of course. Any surprises?

I bet he wants to see himself Sultan...

New repressive action: 5 more NGOs declared to be “foreign agents”; one required to pay tax

Well, seems like the process of suppressing "foreign elements" is going in full force in Russia these days. NGOs like Memorial and Agora, as well as some environmentalists from the Kaliningrad exclave, were declared traitors to the Motherland. A couple of months ago, another 5 NGOs from Saratov to Kostroma to Moscow were also included in the "black list", including the Golos association (name means "voice"), whose function is to supervise elections.

There's been a systematic suppression of NGOs in Russia...
