Perfuming the Lie, Maligning the Truth

by David Sims

HERE ARE SOME of the deceptive tricks used by Leftists to obscure the truth and advance their anti-White narrative.

1. Embedding the lie: “Salt is salty! Lemons are sour! Racism is evil! Many people like apple pie!” Wikipedia does this. It has 1,000 entirely truthful articles for each deceptive one.

2. Perfuming the lie: “In the past, racists have been violent. Racists have been known to organize political campaigns to have one of their number elected to public office. Racism is evil! Racism teaches that the races are different in ways that preclude their living together peacefully for any considerable length of time.” Wikipedia does this, too, though none of the true statements will be understood in context as they might be in isolation. For example, “racists” aren’t the only people who have been violent, and, for that matter, racists haven’t been as violent as the average Black street gang is. Not even close.

Why shouldn’t racists organize political campaigns to have one of their number elected to public office? Being a racist doesn’t mean you can’t engage legitimately and peacefully in the democratic process. But that’s what the leftists want to imply. Most definitely imply, to say it without quite saying it. Because if they say it, you’ll realize that the moral dirtiness is on their hands, and not on the hands of their opponents.

As for the last of the true statements, “Racism teaches that the races are different in ways that preclude their living peacefully together for any considerable length of time,” this is a conclusion that arose from a review of history, which the racists are reporting as well as they can.

None of the true statements really says anything especially bad about racists. However, the words “racist” and “racism” have been pushed so far into disrepute by media propaganda, both in the news and in fictional dramas on television and in the movies, that ordinary contextual association serves as an echo chamber, magnifying the false message of the lie that “racism is evil.”

3. Putting a stink on the truth — or telling the truth through a mouthful of garbage. Or any number of equivalent descriptions. An example might be one in which the media hire a trained actor to be “interviewed” by a reporter. The actor is to pretend to be a racist and an “anti-Semite.” At some point, his script calls for him to say: “We all know that the Jews control the media” — and say it in such an arrogant way that the audience of television viewers get the impression that they are being contemptuously lied to.

The statement that the actor made, however, is perfectly truthful. But the way he said it invites, and was intended to invite, suspicion and skepticism — and disbelief — so that the public comes to believe a lie that was never even explicitly told them.

Good article. I wonder how many people are sufficiently aware of these techniques to avoid being influenced by them. E.g., the notorious Bill O’reilly routinely used #1, and Andrew Anglin’s raison d’être is #3. These are people who would deny being leftists, but undeniably carry water for the Enemy.

They also use a technique that I call “ringing the bell”, where they embed a comment or often just a single word referencing the so-called holocaust in the middle of a discussion, news story or even film dialogue that has absolutely nothing to do with WW2 in even the most remote sense. The idea is to catch the mind off-guard while focusing on an entirely different subject. When the word “Hitler” or something like it pops up, years of programming flash through the listeners’ minds (dictator, Jews, genocide, gas chambers, evil), getting reinforced in a millisecond, then it’s quickly back to the subject at hand and…back to sleep for the audience, never knowing their thought process, beliefs and associated behaviors are being subconsciously and involuntarily strengthened just like a dog… Read more »
