Yes, There Are Paid Government Trolls On Social Media, Blogs, & Websites Like SD

blog trollDo you want solid proof that paid government shills are targeting websites, blogs, forums and social media accounts?  For years, many have suspected that government trolls have been systematically causing havoc all over the Internet, but proving it has been difficult.  But now thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden and revealed by Glenn Greenwald, we finally have hard evidence that western governments are employing people full-time to manage the discussion on alternatives websites.  As you will see below, a UK intelligence outfit known as the Government Communications Headquarters, through a previously secret unit known as the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, has been systematically attempting “to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse”.  This should be deeply disturbing to anyone that values free speech on the Internet.

From End of the American Dream:

It isn’t just that the British government is trying to influence what people are thinking.  The reality is that this is far bigger than a mere propaganda campaign.  As Greenwald recently noted on his new website, the “integrity of the Internet itself” is at stake…

By publishing these stories one by one, our NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same DDoS attacks they accuse “hacktivists” of using, the use of “honey traps” (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

So what techniques are the British using to control and manipulate discourse on the Internet?  According to Greenwald, the documents that Snowden has uncovered show that they are willing to sink to despicable lows in order to get the results that they desire…

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques tomanipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums.

The following is a list of Internet infiltration techniques that were listed on one particular slide that Snowden leaked…

-Infiltration Operation

-Ruse Operation

-Set Piece Operation

-False Flag Operation

-False Rescue Operation

-Disruption Operation

-Sting Operation

There is also evidence that the Canadian government has been involved in this sort of thing as well.  The following comes from Natural News

You’ve probably run into them before — those seemingly random antagonizers who always end up diverting the conversation in an online chat room or article comment section away from the issue at hand, and towards a much different agenda. Hot-button issues like illegal immigration, the two-party political system, the “war on terror” and even alternative medicine are among the most common targets of such attackers, known as internet “trolls” or “shills,” who in many cases are nothing more than paid lackeys hired by the federal government and other international organizations to sway and ultimately control public opinion.

Several years ago, Canada’s CTV News aired a short segment about how its own government had been exposed for hiring secret agents to monitor social media and track online conversations, as well as the activities of certain dissenting individuals. This report, which in obvious whitewashing language referred to such activities as the government simply “weighing in and correcting” allegedly false information posted online, basically admitted that the Canadian government had assumed the role of secret online police.

You can see a video news report about this activity up in Canada right here.

Are you disturbed yet?

You should be.

So what kind of people are the governments of the western world targeting online?

Well, when it comes to the U.S. government, all you have to do is to look at their official documents to see who they consider the “problems” to be.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered ‘Potential Terrorists’ In Official Government Documents“.

Sadly, the reality of the matter is that the days of the free and open Internet are numbered.  The governments of the world are increasing their control over the Internet with each passing day, and eventually a time will likely come when we will not be able to communicate openly like this any longer.

Things have gotten so bad in the U.S. already that even Google is spooked

A recent court decision that endorsed a broad view of the Federal Communications Commission’s authority over the Internet has Google and other Web companies nervous.

In closed-door meetings with regulators and Capitol Hill staff, Google’s lawyers have said they’re worried how the FCC may use its newfound powers, according to multiple people familiar with the meetings.

The extent of the FCC’s authority over Google and other Web services remains unclear, and the current FCC has given no indication that it is interested in pushing aggressive new regulations. But the possibility that the commission could begin telling Google how to organize its search results or handle its users’ data is enough to spook the company’s army of Washington lobbyists.

And this is just the beginning.

If you think that the control freaks that are running things now are bad, just wait until you see the next generation of control freaks.

For example, there is one prominent student writer at Harvard that apparently believes that free speech at her university should be abolished and that any professor that does not advocate for her politically-correct version of “justice” should be fired

A student writer at Harvard University is raising eyebrows after publishing her belief that free speech on campus should be abolished and professors with opposing views be fired.

Sandra Korn, a senior who writes a column for the Harvard Crimson newspaper, thinks radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy, and the First Amendment only hinders colleges from brainwashing students with her viewpoint.

“Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice,” states the subtitle of her Feb. 18 column, in which she insists Harvard stop guaranteeing students and professors the right to hold controversial views and conduct research putting liberalism in a negative light.

“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” Korn asks.

This is what control freaks always want.

They always want to shut down those that are presenting opposing views.

They don’t believe in free speech and a “marketplace of ideas”.  Rather, they believe in shoving what they believe down the rest of our throats.

And now we have solid proof that the governments of the western world are paying people to manipulate discourse on social media, blogs, forums and websites.

So will there be great outrage over this, or will the apathetic public just roll over and ignore this like they have so many other times the past few years?

  1. Trolls? That’s just tin foil hat wearing crazy talk! I trust that our leaders would never even consider such a underhanded trick! How dare anyone suggest that Snowden…..the traitor, would be right on such a claim? I think the government is always conducting honest and upright endeavors on behalf of the American People!

  2. I’m just really offended I was not drafted yet. I need a new job and I’d be brilliant at this.

    Where do I apply? I am fluent in 2 languages and proficient in 2 others. Wide interests, and able to write from a fictive person’s perspective. Proven devil’s advocate poster, to open the views of those in a tunnel.

  3. I don’t understand the cover photo of this article. That guy looks like he might be a nice guy with a little early computer set up. Why use him? Why do this at his expense? He looks like a little computer pioneer. This is pretty low. Also, you guys are publishing a lot of writers with unfounded claims. Just stuff with no evidence or you aren’t citing the articles/papers/documents. It’s really disappointing. There’s no fundament to most of the stuff you are publishing right now. I love the silver manipulation articles, but I need to see links to proof and evidence. It’s kind of unprofessional, or just a hobby blog if you do it this way.

  4. Diss terrible knews. Da
     
     
     

  5. ROFL
    and guess what:
    CHINA and RUSSIA have thousands of internet propaganda agents!!!
    A lot of the Altmedia stuff online is actually Russian-Chinese-Islamic propaganda.
    Look up Lt. General Ion Pacepa’s books!!! EYE OPENING!!!
    This former head of Soviet Romania’s intelligence who defected to America explains how HE was responsible for feeding gullible Westerners anti-West propaganda.

  6. Maybe the gummint would pay me to shut up.
     Hey Potus Shinola De Pinocchio; think that’ll work out?  

  7. “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that precious jewel.” –Patrick Henry

    If what’s posted is essentially anti-Liberty … it can fairly be presumed as sock-puppet propaganda. Even some ‘goofy’ speculation on events, if rather posed in defense of Liberty, can conversely be given some quarter to bandy around.

  8. Look,
    propaganda is thick everywhere, but don’t kid yourselves, America and the West are still the good guys versus China and Russia.
    Here is the truth: China is evil! I spoke with some Vietnamese ex-pats today, and they’re upset with China because China (you won’t read this in pro-China PM blogs btw!!!) has been flooding Vietnam with tainted poisoned food and poisonous plants which spread like crazy, with the intent on destroying the Vietnamese economy, and then China comes riding in as the hero rescuing them from economic problems. These Vietnamese people I know were peons of Communist propaganda years ago, and are now thankfully free from all that. :) :)
    Or ask Filipinos about the aggressive Chinese belligerence in the South China Sea!!!! Filipinos are VERY thankful for American help.
    So many of you focus on the Yakuza and CIA and JPM, and good job on exposing evil practices, but please wake up and realize that the West is the good guy and the Russians and Chinese and their reeducation camps are EVIL!!!
    I KNOW, I KNOW, Russia and China are seen as pro-gold, and that makes all these PM bloggers fresh meat for the Chinese/Russian/Islamic propaganda agents, but these countries are repressive and brutal compared to the West (you think only Western bankers eliminate whistleblowers??? rofl…. How many Chinese and Muslim and Russian whistleblowers have you heard about???? Mhm!).

  9. Proverbs: Give me a break:Westerners  are still the “Good Guys”?????
    You appear to have a somewhat skewed interpretation of the term “Good Guys”I assume you are talking about the establishment as these so called  “guys”
    If the truth be known both side ares just a bad as the other and both will and have done whatever it takes to further their respective agenda.You are very naive if you think otherwise.
    Who do you thinks instigated the Ukraine crisis…Students?
    How about western psychopaths who are bent of maintaining the status quo regardless of any potential collateral damage.

    • Guess what:
      The web is infiltrated with thousands of Russian and Chinese and Islamic propaganda agents. It is naive to think only the NSA and CIA and MI6 are online lol.
      The Russian version of Facebook, “Classmates”, was created by a former FSB guy lol.
      In Russia, any cell phone that comes on the market must first be approved by the government before release into the market in order to allow them to listen to any conversation on any phone at any time.
      Point is, of course there is corruption in Japan and American and the West, but the West absolutely is the good guy in comparison to Red China and its belligerent bullying of Japan and the Philippines and Taiwan and Vietnam etc.
      The Russians and Chinese have mastered propaganda, and I recommend Lt. General Ion Pacepa’s latest book to understand how they deceive us (he was the head of Romania’s propaganda services…!!! He created the propaganda which is now accepted hook line and sinker by Western Intelligence “experts”.
      And a lot of what I see on PM blogs is so clearly facts (such as Fed corruption etc.) spun by our enemies to turn Westerners into pro-Russia/China anti-West peons.
      As for Ukraine, yes, the CIA was involved there as well as MI6, as well as other friendly Western agencies: :) :) this is a good thing. Because believe it or not (trying to not be facetious), the SVR is very heavily active in Ukraine, and so normal Ukrainians cannot overthrow Russian influence without Western help. Naive Ron Paul would like to leave Ukrainians to themselves to fend off the mighty SVR, but thank goodness the CIA is there to challenge the Russians. :)

    • @inlikeflynn,
      LOL, consider the source.  How can China be evil?  China is a geographical area with arbitrary boundry lines drawn on a map.  It is an inanimate thing.  Inanimate objects can not be evil.  Only sentient beings can be evil.  Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and not say that Proverbs is a complete idiot.  Maybe he meant that Chinese people are evil.  Then we could say that he is not a complete idiot, he’s just a racist that has a problem with be in violation of God’s admonitions about judging and loving thy neighbor.

  10. Hey doc, where’d you get the picture of proverbs? That aids troll is the worst poster on this site.

    • Lol
      that’s cute. Got to say I like those glasses.
      As for your mean insults: oh you…….     1. 2. 3. “noogy”.
      Let’s see if I can find an area of agreement with you:
      Ah yes! Team Canada took the gold in women’s and men’s hockey! :) !!!!!!

  11. Ah,
    and let’s compare Putin to Ukraine’s new President:
    Putin: KGB scumbag who ran bloody operations out of East Berlin’s Stasi offices, who is an atheist pretending to warm up to the crooked Russian Orthodox organization
     
    New Ukrainian President: Baptist Preacher/Elder.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oleksandr_Turchynov
    :) Long Live Ukraine, down with blood-thristy KGB thug Putin.

  12. http://www.cbc.ca/player/News/World/ID/2439942126/
    This Expert on Ukrainian Affairs explains the situation beautifully:
    Russia: Has GDP of Italy
    Russia: Output of Barbados.
    Russia with all its resources is a failure.
    Putin knows how to run bloody KGB in Stasi outposts… not how to democratically run a nation. Putin = Big loser bully.

  13. So now you know what I look like. Sheesh!!  Shoulda caught my good side!!  In fact everyone looks like that here in Idaho!!  Even the girls!!  (must be the water) but at least the spooks can’t tell us apart.

  14. The Ukrainian government was taken back by a pro western fascist coup. Considering one of the main players in the new UKE political scene is a neo nazi:
    here he is giving the heil hitler
    http://i.imgur.com/s0sR7dL.jpg
    here he is with John “walnuts” McCain
    http://i.imgur.com/TD6Nory.jpg
     
    The truth, proverbs, is that the former leader sent unarmed police to get slaughtered by western paid thugs, now we have a coup. Putin is protecting the ethnic russians there. Just like when RObert Ford and the US started sh*t in syria by importing death squads to kill unarmed police… get a life, and get a new job.
     
    Here is a new picture of proverbs.
