COVID Communist Chinese, CNN and Francis Propaganda Techniques

This article below by the Federal News Network will show the COVID Communist Chinese propaganda techniques and the rest of the post will examine the CNN and Francis propaganda techniques:

June Teufel Dreyer, a China expert at the University of Miami, said the party may have lost credibility with what she called “engaged public opinion,” but that it’s difficult to know what portion of China’s 1.4 billion people that represents.

Zhou Songyi, another 22-year-old student, said she doesn’t find any useful information on the epidemic from the official People’s Daily newspaper or state broadcaster CCTV, citing stories that, even if true, have a PR agenda rather than seeking to inform the public. 

Social media has given her digital-savvy generation almost instant feedback on some state-media reports, though critical comments are often removed by the country’s internet censorship.

“The battle for truth-telling on the internet is another sign that people do not simply trust in the government,” said Elizabeth Economy, director of Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. She added, though, that the propaganda works on those who believe in the party and want to be comforted and persuaded.

The core of the approach is to stifle any criticism while providing positive role models and showing the party as China’s only real hope...

“... The medics are portrayed as heroes not because of their dedication as health professionals, but because they are party members,” said Anthony Saich, a China expert at Harvard University. He believes the crisis has damaged confidence in Xi’s leadership to a degree but won’t have a lasting impact.

The health workers form the basis of the people’s war, a term adopted early on by Xi. A recent CCTV evening news broadcast showed him visiting military health units. Everyone maintained a safe distance from each other, following the government-ordered protocol, their mouths and noses covered by protective masks.

“Wars invite people to cast aside their squabbles and dissent and to come together,” said David Bandurski of the China Media Project at the University of Hong Kong. “Wars make heroes — and heroes are the stuff propaganda thrives upon.” 

Nationalist campaigns have worked before, channeling anger away from the party in the SARS outbreak, territorial disputes with Japan, last year’s Hong Kong protests and the ongoing trade war with the U.S. 

This time, the official coverage of the virus may help blunt any lasting political damage to Xi and the party’s authority, even as the social and economic costs of the outbreak exact a rising toll.  [https://federalnewsnetwork.com/government-news/2020/03/china-turns-to-propaganda-to-right-image-in-virus-war/]

Wikipedia explains what the Hitler inspired propaganda technique is:

"A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone 'could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously'."

"... The phrase [big lie] was also used in a report prepared during the war by the United States Office of Strategic Services in describing Hitler's psychological profile:[5]

"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." [https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_lie]
CNN and Native American propagandist Nathan Phillips in "his Saturday interview with CNN" gives an example of the Hitler inspired big lie propaganda technique against the Covington boys:
"It looked like these young men were going to attack [the Black Israelites]. They were going to hurt them. They were going to hurt them because they didn’t like the color of their skin. They didn’t like their religious views. They were just here in front of the Lincoln — Lincoln is not my hero, but at the same time, there was this understanding that he brought the (Emancipation Proclamation) or freed the slaves, and here are American youth who are ready to, look like, lynch these guys. To be honest, they looked like they were going to lynch them. They were in this mob mentality."[https://www.thenewneo.com/]
Phillips was echoing Hitler's "people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it" as the New Neo Blog shows:

"The lie wasn’t a one-off, either. This incredibly misleading article in Rolling Stone (written that same Saturday) is typical of reactions to the incident as well as to another statement by Phillips that he gave (in an interview with the Detroit Free Press) on Saturday [emphasis mine]"
“'There was that moment when I realized I’ve put myself between beast and prey,' Phillips told the Detroit Free-Press. 'These young men were beastly and these old black individuals [the Black Israelites] was their prey, and I stood in between them and so they needed their pounds of flesh and they were looking at me for that.''[https://www.thenewneo.com/]

Meanwhile, Francis was echoing Hitler's propaganda technique of "never admit a fault or wrong" in an attempt to make it appear that he hasn't covered up clerical sex abuse when it was reported:

"Pope Francis told an American pilgrim taking part in World Youth Day that clerical sex abuse is a 'horrible crime' and that 'even if it is just one person, the Church should not tolerate it.'"
[https://thetablet.org/pope-to-california-pilgrim-clerical-sex-abuse-is-a-horrible-crime/]

As everyone who has followed the clerical career of Francis before and after he assumed power know, he has displayed different examples of the Hitler inspired propaganda technique of double-talk.

One example, is his "disposing of inconvenient facts by denying their existence" as historian Henry Sire reported in an article for the Traditionalist magazine shows:

After Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio's predator "priest Ruben Pardo... died of AIDS... the Catholic Church [paid] the family compensation for the harm they suffered... Perhaps more significant is a remark by Cardinal Bergoglio to Rabbi Abraham Skorka, published in 2010, a year after [Bergoglio's predator priest] Father [Julio] Grassi's conviction, that cases of abuse "had never arisen in his diocese."
(Traditionalists, "Francis: More Questions," Winter 2019)

As in the case of CNN and Phillips, double-talk, also, involves not just denying the existence of inconvenient facts, but of using the Hitler big lie technique of saying the exact opposite of what really happened.

This is the other type double-talk that Francis uses as Chris Ferrara shows:

"As [journalist Philip] Lawler had rightly concluded nine days before this new evidence surfaced: 

'The Zanchetta case demonstrates that Pope Francis continues to protect his friends and allies, regardless of his professed commitment to accountability. This one case illustrates how, since Francis was elected, the Vatican has actually moved backward [his emphasis] on two crucial fronts: the fight against sexual abuse and the quest for financial transparency. In this pontificate, the cause of reform is dead, unless the reform begins with the Pontiff himself.'" 

"Note well:  Even a commentator who had never previously been inclined to level strong criticism of any Pope now declares that the reform of the Church under Bergoglio [Francis] is impossible unless it begins “with the Pontiff himself.” Lawler’s piece demonstrates that there is scarcely a responsible Catholic commentator left who has not had quite enough of Bergoglio’s double-talk and crooked maneuvers." 

"The Bergoglian double-talk now reportedly includes some carefully timed statements in an upcoming book-interview wherein he suddenly recognizes that homosexuality is a problem in the Church after all and that homosexuals should not be admitted to seminary. This, Life Site rightly observes, fits Bergoglio’s 'established… pattern of saying one controversial thing which deflects attention from another controversial matter.'  The same would be true concerning reports of statements Bergoglio made behind closed doors to the Italian bishops last May to the effect that that 'it is better' that homosexuals not be admitted to seminary if there is “the slightest doubt” about their fitness."

"There will never, of course, be any official and binding declaration from Bergoglio to the universal Church strictly banning those afflicted by the homosexual disorder from admission to seminaries or barring their path to ordination should they succeed in being admitted.  On this issue, as with so many others, Bergoglio will say one thing while he intends to do quite the opposite—in this case, nothing. Nothing, that is, except to protect friends and allies who engage in or cover up homosexual activity."

"Worse than the Borgias?"

"Among those friends and allies is Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, the Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, who is no less than the coordinator of Bergoglio’s “Council of Cardinals.”  Maradiaga is not only mired in allegations of financial corruption but is also orchestrating a determined coverup of  a 'widespread and entrenched pattern of homosexual practice in Tegucigalpa’s major seminary,” under the supervision of Maradiaga’s friend, former auxiliary Bishop Juan Jose Pineda Fasquelle, who was forced to resign  last July after evidence surfaced of his own homosexual activity with seminarians. '"
 
"'Forty-eight seminarians in Tegucigalpa joined in a letter protesting the homosexual infestation of their seminary, citing “irrefutable evidence” that “a homosexual network pervades the institution and is being protected by its rector.”  The evidence includes “graphic photographic evidence of homosexual pornography, exchanged on WhatsApp between seminarians who did not sign the letter, as well as other obscene messages.' Maradiaga, who continues to protect a cadre of homosexuals in the seminary after sending some of them away, has denounced the protesting seminarians as “gossipers.”  He remains fully a member of Bergoglio’s inner circle."

"Another protected Bergoglian ally is Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, former head of Bergoglio’s Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legislative Texts, who endorses Bergoglio’s catastrophic authorization of Holy Communion for the divorced and “remarried.”  As the whole Catholic world knows and as Life Site News reported, in 2017 Coccopalmerio’s secretary, Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, “was arrested by Vatican police after they caught him hosting a cocaine-fueled homosexual orgy” in an apartment Bergoglio had secured for him, located in the same Vatican building as the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith." 

"It was later revealed that Coccopalmerio, who has since retired to Milan, was not only present during the orgy but was ‘was presiding’ over it when the Vatican Gendarmes broke in, and that they instructed him to absent himself before they started making arrests,” including the arrest of Capozzi. As LifeSite further reports: 'At the time of the arrest, Capozzi was allegedly so high on cocaine that he was hospitalized for detoxification for a short period in the Pius XI clinic in Rome. He is currently in an undisclosed convent in Italy undergoing a spiritual retreat…'”


"Not surprisingly, Coccopalmerio had earlier argued for the Church’s recognition of 'positive elements' in 'homosexual unions,' an abomination in keeping with the infamous 'midterm report' of the 2014 sham Synod on the Family, written by Bergoglio ally Bruno Forte, another 'gay'-friendly propagandist Bergoglio handpicked as the Synod’s general secretary. The report declares that 'homosexual unions' can exhibit 'mutual aid' to the point of sacrifice [which] constitutes a precious support in the life of the partners.”  Bergoglio reviewed and approved the report before it was released to the press without the Synod Fathers having had a chance to review what was supposed to be their own document."

 "Also not surprisingly, it was Coccopalmerio who 'generally spoke against the laicization of a priest as a punishment' for homosexual predation, which he viewed as 'a kind of ‘death penalty’ for a priest.'  Accordingly, while serving as a member of the CDF’s review board for priest sex abuse cases, to which he was appointed by Bergoglio,  he 'regularly proposed mild punishments…'”


"LifeSite’s commentary on the Maradiaga scandal is appropriately entitled: “The new Borgia pope? Francis and the Maradiaga catastrophe.” Life Site quotes Riposte Catholique on the significance of the Coccopalmerio-Capozzi scandal: 'One thinks one is dreaming: in the most deplorable of ways, the Rome of today seems to have fallen lower than the Rome of the Borgias.'”

"Another Sham Summit"  
"Once again, it’s all about protecting minors. Nothing whatever to do with homosexual priests and bishops and their acts of sodomy with legal adults—not even vulnerable adults in their very late teens or early twenties exploited by clerical authority figures.  Minors, minors, minors, that’s the ticket!  Repeat after me: minors. Clerical sodomy between “consenting adults” is of no concern to Bergoglio and his collaborators, including the homosexuals among them. The event might as well be entitled: 'The Protection of Homosexual Priests in the Church.'" [https://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/articles/item/4311-anatomy-of-a-coverup-francis-vatican-exposed]"
  

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pray an Our Father now that God gives President Trump the grace to do His will in this present COVID hysteria crisis and to be reelected.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement.
