So Naomi Wolf, whom you may know as either a feminist and social theorist or as the lady who was blamed for advising Al Gore to wear earth-tones for a cool $15k per month, had a bit of a Facebook meltdown over the weekend, which seems to be all the rage these days.
Except Wolf’s wasn’t your garden variety ‘sick of all of this shit, and I’m not gonna take it anymore’ kind of meltdown. It was more of ‘not using your inside voice in your head and instead speaking out loud crazy talk’ kind of meltdown; the kind that makes people excuse themselves at a restaurant hoping the bathroom has an easy to open window with a short drop into the back-alley.
It seems that Wolf, who has a history of seeing a smidgen of conspiracy here and there (Occupy was drone-killed by a massive government conspiracy instead of entropy and progressive hipster ennui) went full throttle Bride of Alex Jones False Flag Truther on her Facebook page over the weekend, leading some to suspect an aneurysm or possibly a Peggy Noonan St.Patrick’s Day Code Red bender.
We’ll dismiss for the moment Wolf’s belief that the recent Scottish referendum is the new Florida 2000 Presidential election hanging chad brouhaha, and focus further south and to the east.
On Friday Wolf suggested that the recent ISIS beheadings were false-flag-faked to drum up war, just like Dick Cheney used to do it in the old days.
After receiving responses to her post ranging from “WTF?” to “Seriously, WTF?” Wolf wrote that media had failed Journalism 101, and maybe they SHOULD EDUCATE THEMSELVES, BECAUSE SOMETHING SOMETHING SOMETHING:
It used to be called journalism till about two years ago (when the NDAA allowed propaganda to be aimed at Americans in the news). It may well be that every one of these videos is confirmed and accurate. But that has not happened yet. There are journalistic red flags in this story from the fact that SITE, which is run by an anti-Muslim activist with half a million dollars in US funding in 2004, is the sole source for some of them, to the fact that when we here reported out a ‘journalist taken hostage’ story about two weeks ago — remember the purported Montreal-based female foreign correspondent ‘taken hostage” in Syria? — the story completey fell apart and then vanished from the news stream. The Montreal paper Le Devoir confirmed that a journalist by that name did not work there and the image in the story we confirmed was actually of a Swedish sports reporter — not a Montreal-base foreign correspondent at all.
Except that, you know, James Foley and Steven Sotloff are not fakey journalists from America’s hat, but real people with families and everything else here, none of whom must have been pleased with Wolf waving their fake bloody shirts like a 9/11 truther.
To her credit, Wolf did not suggest that the beheading videos were shot at a sound-stage in Arizona using ‘moon sand’ left over from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Having made a deposit on a third story walk-up in Crazytown, Wolf moved in on Saturday:
Essentially, Wolf is saying that the U.S. Government — which has already dispatched hundreds of CDC workers to Africa — is using Ebola as an excuse to establish a military presence in Africa, using American soldiers as plague mules who will bring back Ebola like an unwanted souvenir, and who will then infect Homeland Americans with the disease who can then be rounded up and put into FEMA Ebola camps.
Because controlling a deadly virus is something the military does everyday before you’ve even gotten up and eaten your biscuit taco.
This seems like a bit of a stretch for an administration that had trouble launching a healthcare website with a multi-year head start. I can’t imagine giving America Ebola for …some reason, is a “narrative” that anyone dreamed up who doesn’t live in a Fortress of Super Evil located somewhere out in the Pacific Ocean.
Although that Biden guy seems charming and disarming, so you never know.
Of course it could be that Wolf is being used by the U. S. government to drum up fears of Ebola America to distract us from more pressing matters like Benghazi!, missing IRS emails, chemtrails, and WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AT BLDG 7?
Wheels within wheels, man. Always, wheels within wheels. They never stop churning…
