BLATANT: MOCKING FAIL OF FAR-RIGHT 1% MEDIA [Daily Wail Corrections]

dailywail_BLATANT

The tabloids, their corporate advertisers and chums in government started it…

The last 7 years of the far-right 1%’s constant, vicious, brutal ‘austerity’ (or class war), punishing the most vulnerable members of society is beyond ‘bullying’. As new Sheffield MP, Jared O’Mara says, it’s eugenics. Shadow chancellor, John McDonnell has rightly called for Iain Duncan Smith to face criminal charges over WCA ‘fit to work’ deaths.

The Tories’ Victorian throwback, Jacob Rees-Mogg has barely been slapped on the wrist for associating with nazis. Racist Tory MP, Anne Marie Morris has been suspended from the party, when she should have been expelled and arrested for using hate speech.

It is laughably hypocritical for the 1% to use their gutter press to point the finger at the ‘hard-left’ when their far-right propaganda is so demonstrably damaging to the national psyche in terms of it’s racism, classism and fearmongering.

NHS NEWS – SHOCKING VIDEO of Jeremy Hunt’s Visit to the U.S. [Post Satire]

NHS NEWS EXCLUSIVE!

Shocking video has emerged of pernicious ‘health’ secretary, Jeremy Hunt’s recent visit to the U.S. The video clearly shows the Tory sympathiser detonating explosive devices and destroying, ‘redeveloping’ a hospital in Gotham City.

It is suspected that Hunt may be colluding with the ‘Bane’ of our existence…

Damage Report: 9th-15th January, 2017

trumpgreatagaingifHaving failed at giving up smoking, I’m determined to stick to this one of my New Year’s Resolutions – documenting and sharing some of the most interesting things from Ann Narkeh Media‘s prolefeed each week.

This series has been retitled; ‘Damage Reports’, because unfortunately that’s how it’s shaping up this year…I’m struggling with it all to be honest, virtually everyone I know is.

If you’re able, please consider making a contribution to Ann Narkeh Media’s doings via paypal, thankyou.

You can read last week’s report here if you’re interested.

Keep it lit.

Strike for Victory!

Monday 9th was #tubestrike day, when fake corporate news encouraged workers to get angry about their own exploitation being delayed by tube workers fighting for everybody’s safety. Solidarity with all striking workers!

Maximum Wage

  • Q. Who’s afraid of the ?
  • A. The very very very very rich. The very very very very rich are scared shitless by the .

Tuesday 10th, billionaire media owners scrambled to spin the news that Jeremy Corbyn wants to address absurd levels of inequality in the UK. Meaningful discussion was shut down by telling right wingers that a maximum wage was ‘utterly mad’ (because it would ‘kill aspiration’), and by telling left wingers that Corbyn had capitulated on ‘immigration’  racism. Needless to say, the Maximum Wage proposal is proving to be wildly popular with the 99%.

Fracking

#Fracking idiots #Cuadrilla are still assaulting Nanashire. The knitting nanas and protectors all around the world are still resisting. Real Media are publishing Tina Louise Rotheray’s daily diaries from the frontlines in Lancashire. Utopian Bohemians mashed up this excellent (albeit tragic) slo-mo Funeral escort.

Your taxes at work:

  • Q. How many police does it take to slow march a lorry?
  • A. About 36. (And 4 vans…)

Over 50, 000 people have signed Friends of the Earth’s petition to Save Sherwood Forest from Fracking.

Drill or Drop‘s Ruth HayHurst is publishing weekly reports on protests against dirty fuel in the UK. frack-off.org.uk have published this map detailing all the current threats and the growing resistance around the country.

Westmonster

Caroline Lucas led cross party objections to UK Gov. Plc’s asset stripping of the Green Investment Bank on Wednesday 11th. Predictably, the Tory minister responding had only mealy mouthed cut and paste responses.

The ‘Homeless Reduction Bill‘ which “aims to put a new duty on councils to house people living rough within 56 days”, is still working it’s way through parliament. This follows the “No Second Night Out” initiative lie, which was rolled out in 2010…Meanwhile, a Shoreditch City worker complained  yesterday (Saturday), that he and his neighbours are being “terrorised” in their block of (warm) flats by (cold) homeless people living outside it. (My heart bleeds…)

NHS Crisis

As of Thursday, over 20 UK hospitals are on ‘Black Alert’At least 23 hospital trusts in England declared they were unable to manage demand last week…twitter said in no uncertain terms that the ‘Health Secretary’, Jeremy #HuntMustGO. The hashtag was trending at number one in the UK as protesters braved extreme weather to gather outside the Department of Health, calling for Hunt’s resignation.

 

Big Brother Corporation

The BBC have announced their ‘Reality Check’ series will become a permanent fixture, debunking (whatever they’re told to say is) on social media. ‘The Ministry of #PostTruth‘…

The Beeb also ran this extremely arrogant, (yet insightful) article about #PostTruth including quotes I can’t be bothered to cut n paste from some toff who I can’t be bothered to research properly. Apparently, he thinks better than we precarious proles waffling away on social media….and that’s what Post Truth is all about…at least he’s brave enough to share what will I assume be largely unpopular and out of touch sentiments about an already deeply unpopular phenomenon. ‘Post Truth’ is OLD. Older than Orwell, older than Bernays and Machiavelli…

Paul Mason Turns Out to be Just Another Capitalist.

I used to think he was cool, but there’s nothing #PostCapitalist about @PaulMasonNews now.

He wants freedom of movement,…but only for the rich.

paulmasonnotcool

I’m glad I didn’t get around to acquiring a copy of his book now.

HOPE!

A group of activists are using a derelict building owned by an Oxford college as a shelter for the city’s homeless population. Fourteen people have been sleeping at the shelter since New Year’s Eve.

Brilliant news from Finland’s #BasicIncome experiment, where they’re recommending it be expanded. MEPs have warned EU countries must “seriously” consider introducing a  Basic Income to prepare for technological unemployment.

LULZ

I discovered another fantastic comedian managing to find ways to laugh at the horrific state of it all. Here’s , Chris Coltrane‘s  excellent standup show, ‘Left-Wing Propaganda Machine’: 

In addition to being a hilarious standup, Chris also does a brilliant YouTube show called The News For Idiots. Why not watch an episode? You might like it!

As we’re fast approaching #J20, I must also share with you this tragi-comedic sketch from @SKZCartoons:

Ghostban Investigations, Concluded.

Hello. Hope you had a good Christmas.

If you’re reading this post, you’re probably in my dwindling little filter bubble. I would be interested to know who you are and how you got here…please leave me a comment or DM me. Nobody talks to me anymore. I’ve been effectively shunned online without having been told why.

I first noticed that Ann Narkeh Media‘s social media ‘reach’ had dropped off a cliff a few months ago, shortly after being booted from the Occupy News Network. Ostensibly I was removed for being too Post-Satirical…though with the current state of play, I now wonder if it was an opening salvo in the ongoing #FakeNews #PostTruth assault on humanity’s capacity for critical thought…

According to Techopedia, Ghostbanning “is a process through which a user is invisibly banned from a social network, website or online community. a ghost banned user can access the social network, review updates from his or her connections, etc., but none of that user’s activity, such as content or link sharing, is visible to connections or even general subscribers. This enables the website administrator to segregate spammers from the lot and to put ‘suspicious’ users under scrutiny until their activities are on par with the terms and conditions of the site in question”.

Ann Narkeh Media‘s flagship publication, The Occupied Sun has 4,773 likes on fedbook. On December 22nd, I reposted the previous ghostban report and asked people to RSVP in some way if they could see the post. One week later, only 27 people have ‘liked’ it, 4 people commented. Out of an apparent 4,773. Recently, the front pages I’ve been creating have been seen by even smaller numbers. Another weird glitch is that the page’s stats have indicated a consistent +12 – +30 odd new ‘likes’ every day for months now, yet the total has remained at the same number. It’s the same picture with virtually all my other channels.

It’s all become quite disheartening.

I abandoned fedbook for twitter, to test reports that it might be less Orwellian. Unfortunately, my interactions there only peaked for a day. Craig Murray apparently suffered a 90% drop in traffic after his site was ghostbanned on twitter.

I had never heard of ghost banning until I was ghost banned by twitter. That of course is the idea – they censor you without realising you are censored. People no longer get notifications when I post, and the tweet only turns up in the twitter line of followers who happen to be logged in at the time my tweet goes out. Those logging in later will no longer see tweets I issued while they were away. Most of my tweets no longer show up on twitter searches, and further restrictions are applied when people retweet my tweets.

Since ghost banning, traffic to this website from twitter has fallen 90%.

Ghost banning is a particularly pernicious form of censorship for delicate artivists like myself, as it can make you question the quality of your output, wonder if your stuff’s become shit, worry that you pissed people off…thankfully my ego is sufficiently detached that I’m able to analyse the situation fairly objectively and share my conclusions with you.

This isn’t the first time I’ve been digitally censored. I first experienced it on myspace years ago, then youtube…I’ve been trying to encourage the difficult, uncomfortable conversations that we are increasingly being forced to have for quite a long time now, under various guises and on different platforms.

It’s not about me and my efforts, or you and yours either. It’s not just ‘alternative news’ that’s under attack. It’s critical thought and objective reality itself. It’s journalists, activists and artists of all varieties. Musicians. Poets. Whistleblowers. Writers. Bloggers. Livestreamers. ‘Truthers’… and if you don’t care about all this stuff that we call ‘objective reality’, if you don’t participate in the conversation at all, it cares the most about you. The spectators. The consumers.

Fake News is just the latest phase of a full spectrum culture war which has been going on forever. It’s currently at an ultra paranoid neo-McCarthyist juncture, which is quite scary. The establishment do not want us to talk about the things we want to talk about. They don’t want us to think about what we want to think about. They want us to retreat into myopic polarised factions. Brexit or Bremain. Globalist or Nationalist. ‘Left’ or ‘Right’. Capitalism or Communism. Those who refuse to pick a side and fight are shunned, censored and worse, depending on how successful they are at promoting unity over division, or love over fear.

According to wikipedia, ghost banning is just the latest rebranding of a form of censorship which is probably as old as the internet. Stealth banning (also called shadow banning and hell banning) goes back to at least 2006, Comment ghosting (or selective invisibility) is another practice deployed to render individual comments invisible to everyone except the poster, in order to eliminate disruption it might otherwise cause.[1] Stealth banning is sometimes also called “Coventry” or “ghost-posting“. apparently…the history of the internet’s dark arts go way back (arguably before the internet…). It’s nothing new. As Orwell said in 1945, “The sinister fact about literary censorship in England is that it is largely voluntary”… the desired outcome is to frustrate the user to the point that they give up, as I’ve done more than once.

Stealth banning can be detected by using an anonymous proxy service to see if a post is visible to a separate user; if not, stealth banning is likely to have occurred.

As far as I can tell, I’m either in a very small filter bubble, or I’ve been ghost banned, or both. Perhaps this whole little bubble of mine has been filtered? Maybe it’s one small bubble kept within a series of other bubbles, (labelled ‘dissenting’…kept well away from the bubbles labelled ‘conforming’….perhaps…). As I said, if you’re one of the few people still reading my scribblings, I would be interested to hear from you.

I’ve been giving this problem a great deal of thought over the holidays. Having confirmed what I can of the situation, broadly my conclusion is that it is more urgent than ever that we reclaim the interwebz. We must somehow circumvent these algorithms to allow everybody the opportunity to be meaningfully involved in the conversation again.

I’m going to write up Ann Narkeh Media‘s list of new year’s resolutions, which will be the strategies I’ve formulated so far towards overcoming this challenge and others.

If you’re in my small, but perfectly formed filter bubble reading this and want to collaborate on ways and means to burst our way out, please do get in touch.

Keep it lit.

CELEBRITY GOSSIP IS ‘FAKE NEWS’ [Daily Wail]

Daily Wail 

CELEBRITY GOSSIP IS ‘FAKE NEWS’

  • Corporate Media is Making People Stupid, Angry and/or Fearful
  • The Results of ‘Talent’ Shows are NOT News
  • Thinking for Yourself is Now Revolutionary

NATURE’S ANSWER TO STRESS: Boycott Corrupt Media

The 1%’s corrupt, corporate controlled media banging on about ‘Fake News’ is the height of hypocrisy.

They pushed us past peak bullshit into the post truth era.

Satirising their dying industry isn’t even funny anymore.

Boycott shit media.

Think for yourself.

Seize The Memes of Production!

In the current Orwellian, TrumpistaniPost-BREXIT, Post-Truth, Post-Satire, Post-Apocalyptic socio-political cultural landscape, it is vital right now that we netizens of all backgrounds and persuasions engage in rational, truthful discussion with each other – as difficult as this can often be.

Humanity has been gifted the most awesome communications tool ever created, but thus far we have been using it mostly to share pictures of cats and other funny but pointless memes…

meme

/miːm/

noun

noun: meme; plural noun: memes
  1. 1.
    an element of a culture or system of behaviour passed from one individual to another by imitation or other non-genetic means.
  2. 2.
    an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users, often with slight variations.

Memes (especially funny ones) are powerful.

The internet offered us all the ability to express ourselves with unprecedented nuance, which we were woefully underprepared for. This new technology has revealed an overwhelming plethora of beliefs, ideas and perspectives, challenging everything we thought we knew about the human condition.

Hence cat pics, trolls, meme wars and now, ‘Fake News’…the latest phase of the establishment resisting our rising consciousness.

The difficult conversations which need to happen right now are being made yet more difficult by the phenomenon of ‘ideological echo chambers’. Harmonious group of people developing tunnel vision by virtue of social media marketing algorithms. filterbubbles

Overall awareness suffers when people have a narrow information base. The longer we spend in our safe little bubbles reinforcing our beliefs about the nature of reality, the harder the conversations which we urgently need to have outside those bubbles become; the more entrenched and dogmatic we become in our beliefs and the more we resist engaging in anything but vitriolic expressions of fear and hatred towards those who would dare disagree with us.

As Adam Curtis puts it, people have come to thinking that the point of it all is to simply agree or disagree with things.  So, we either hide in our ‘safe spaces’, or argue with people who disagree with us, within prescribed parameters of a controlled debate.

Constantly.

Meanwhile, multiple apocalyptic, extinction level crises are still converging.
