    UN Declares War on ‘Dangerous’ Conspiracy Theories: ‘The World Is NOT

    Secretly Manipulated By Global Elite’
    August 7, 2022 James Fetzerblog
    VIA : NEWSPUNCH.COM

    [Editor’s note: Bullshit is bullshit, even when it comes from a source such as the UN. For antidotes to nonsense, check out my publications (available on-line): “Thinking about ‘Conspiracy Theories’: 9/11 and JFK” and “What’s Wrong with Conspiracy Theories?”. Then watch “How to Spot a False Flag (Part 1)” and “How to Spot a. False Flag (Part 2)” and evaluate the evidence. This is an embarrassing development that all-but-discredits the UN as having a voice in international affairs. It has hereby discredited itself.]

    The United Nations has declared war on conspiracy theories, describing the rise of conspiracy thinking as “worrying and dangerous”, and providing the public with a toolkit to “prebunk” and “debunk” anybody who dares to suggest that world governments are anything but completely honest, upstanding and transparent.

    The UN also warns that George Soros, the Rothschilds and the State of Israel must not be linked to any “alleged conspiracies.”

    UNESCO has teamed up with Twitter, the European Commission and the World Jewish Congress to launch the campaign dubbed #ThinkBeforeSharing: Stop the spread of conspiracy theories.

    The UN wants you to know that events are NOT “secretly manipulated behind the scenes by powerful forces with negative intent” and if you encounter anybody who thinks the global elite are conspiring to consolidate power and dictate global events, you must take action.

    According to UNESCO, “if you are certain you have encountered a conspiracy theory” on the internet then you must “react” immediately post a relevant link to a “fact-checking website” in the comments.

    (Never mind the fact that “fact checkers” are mostly untrained and unqualified hacks performing “fact checks” from the comfort of their bedroom in between posting far-left political content on personal blogs and getting high.)



    UNESCO also provides advice for anyone who encounters a real live conspiracy theorist in the flesh. According to the UN agency, you must not under any circumstances be lured into an argument with the conspiracy theorist. “Any argument may be taken as proof that you are part of the conspiracy and reinforce that belief” and the conspiracy theorist will probably “argue hard to defend their beliefs.“

    Instead you must show “empathy“, avoid “ridiculing them“, and if you are a journalist you must “report” them to social media and “contact your local/national press council or press ombudsman.”



    Remarkably, hidden in the fine print, UNESCO admits that conspiracy theories do exist. Under the heading “What is a real conspiracy?” the United Nations bureaucrats explain that “real conspiracies large and small DO exist.”

    According to the UN, it’s only a REAL conspiracy theory if it’s “unearthed by the media.”

    “They are more often centered on single self-contained events, or an individual like an assassination or a coup d’etat. They are unearthed by whistleblowers and the media, using verifiable facts and evidence.“



    There is just one problem with the UN’s definition of a “real” conspiracy theory. The media has been fully bought and paid for by the elite. And it’s the elite who are conspiring against the masses.

    Ask yourself, when was the last time the media unearthed a conspiracy?

    Also ask yourself, when was the last time the media covered up a conspiracy?

    "The world is not secretly manipulated by Global Elite". Oh yeah? Where did the UN come from then?

    A new campaign helps you learn how to identify, debunk, react to and report on conspiracy theories to prevent their spread. Check out the infographics and social media pack below and help spread the word that facts matter and no one is to blame. Thinking critically and being informed about conspiracy theories is key to challenging them.

    This UNESCO campaign is implemented jointly with the European Commission, Twitter and the World Jewish Congress.
    I don't think this UNESCO campaign is new.
    The World Economic Forum used the exact same graphics back in 2020

    “Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses. It is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
    H.L. Mencken

    "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
    H. L. Mencken

    unesco.org: UNESCO social media study exposes virulent Holocaust denial and distortion
    July 13, 2022

    unesdoc.unesco.org: Holocaust denial and distortion on social media
    Denial and distortion of the Holocaust attacks truth and knowledge. It feeds on and spreads antisemitism and jeopardises the understanding of one of the most tragic and violent episodes in the history of humanity: the genocide of 6 million Jews by Nazi Germany, its allies and collaborators. This publication by the United Nations and UNESCO studies the extent and nature of Holocaust denial and distortion on Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, TikTok and Twitter ...

    The genocide of six million Jews by Nazi Germany, its allies and collaborators. In countries across Europe, people became complicit in the persecution and murder of their neighbours. Holocaust denial and distortion can prevent society from reckoning with this past. It impedes our comprehension of the causes and warning signs of genocide, and that might strengthen efforts for genocide prevention. It is insulting to the victims and survivors of the Holocaust, and risks the rehabilitation of violent, antisemitic ideologies. At its most extreme, it celebrates and glorifies this history, inciting violence against Jews and calling for another genocide.

    The United Nations and UNESCO condemn the rise of Holocaust denial and distortion online as a dangerous form of hatred, and commissioned this report in partnership with the World Jewish Congress to raise awareness of the forms and functions of Holocaust denial and distortion on social media, and determine a series of policy and educational responses.

    This report is a data-driven investigation into the extent and nature of Holocaust denial and distortion on online platforms. It is based on a manual review of almost 4,000 pieces of content collected in June and July 2021 that related to Jews, the Holocaust, antisemitism and Holocaust denial and distortion from five major online platforms and messenger apps. It looks at content posted on Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, TikTok and Twitter: some of the world’s largest online platforms and collectively home to billions of users. It addresses content in four different languages: English, French, Spanish and German, with the aim of providing a wide-ranging review that addresses multiple countries and contexts. This report aims to answer four questions:
    1. How much Holocaust-related content on social media either denies the Holocaust or distorts key elements of history?
    2. What are the key narratives in contemporary Holocaust denial and distortion?
    3. How are Holocaust denial and distortion communicated, and how are they situated within wider discourses and frames?
    4. What can online platform companies, policy-makers, educators and organizations promoting Holocaust remembrance, education and research do to tackle the problem?

    Based on the findings of this report, it provides a series of recommended actions that online platforms, policy-makers, civil society, researchers and educators can implement to prevent and counter Holocaust denial and distortion online.
    unesco.org: Addressing conspiracy theories through education: UNESCO guidance for teachers
    July 6, 2022
    Conspiracy theories thrive in troubled times with serious real-world impacts. In the horrific mass murder recently targeting African-Americans in the U.S. city of Buffalo, the alleged suspect invoked the false “Great Replacement” conspiracy theory, which purports there is a plot to replace people of European ancestry, driving an international white supremacist narrative founded on racism, antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred.

    Education can play a central role in building the resilience, knowledge and analytical skills needed to “pre-bunk” and debunk conspiracy theory narratives, including through media and information literacy. To strengthen educational responses through advocacy, research and training, UNESCO and the European Jewish Congress organized the International Symposium on Addressing Conspiracy Theories through Education on 27 June 2022 in Brussels to convene academia, governments, civil society and the private sector for joint action.

    “Whenever there is another murder, killing spree or terrorist attack, whenever there is a new manifesto chock full of conspiracy theories and hatred … Whether you think of Utoya, Norway, or Christchurch, New Zealand, of Halle or Hanau in Germany, of Pittsburgh or El Paso in the U.S., or Buffalo, New York, just a few weeks ago, each and every time it was conspiracy theorists who became the perpetrators of unfathomable violence,”

    Just ask questions. Don't make statements. You can't lie when you are questioning. ASKING breaks down to AS ....KING.

    Assume everything is NOTICE. Notice is the first element of due process. The second element of due process is called opportunity to inquire. Inquiry is ASKING.

    When your opportunity to inquire is gone then so is your due process and off to court you go where you will be guilty. What are you guilty of? Perhaps not agreeing with your opponent?
    Perhaps coming to a premature judgment?

    thegatewaypundit.com: UN Representative Declares “We Own the Science” at World Economic Forum – Admits Working with Big Tech to Suppress Other Viewpoints (VIDEO)
    October 3, 2022
    Melissa Fleming, UN’s Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications, was one of the speakers at the World Economic Forum event.

    Melissa Fleming boasted that the elites want people to follow the science because they “own the science” during her talk on ‘Tackling Disinformation at the Sustainable Development Impact Meetings 2022,’ held in New York last September 19-23, 2022...

    “We partnered with Google. For example, if you Google climate change, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of UN resources,” Fleming said during a one-on-one talk with Adrian Monck, the Managing Director, Head of Public And Social Engagement at the World Economic Forum.

    “We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled climate change, we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top, so we’re becoming much more proactive.”

    “We own the science and we think that the world should know it, and the platform themselves also do. But again, it’s a huge challenge that I think all sectors of society need to be very active,” she said.

    Fleming holds a bachelor's degree in German studies from Oberlin College, Ohio and a masters' degree in broadcast journalism from Boston University, Massachusetts...

    From July 2009 to 2019, Fleming worked as Head of Global Communications for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees...

    On September 1, 2019 she was appointed an Under Secretary-General of the United Nations, taking over from predecessor Alison Smale as head of the UN Department of Global Communications

    newsweek.com: Fact Check: Did New Zealand's Jacinda Ardern Call To Censor Free Speech?
    9/29/22
    The arguments being made about Ardern's speech, in the rough, appear to be that any type of online censorship or regulation, from any authority, is damaging to the principle of freedom of speech, no matter how it manifests. Instead what she was referring to is the weaponization of free speech societies and platforms by misinformation agents.
    This is the face of authoritarianism - even though it looks different than you were taught to expect. And it's the mindset of tyrants everywhere:
