Narrative Warfare: A Movie Pitch
A quick thread gains traction because people need to understand the story.
Last week I wrote this piece describing the two realities we’re facing — an alternate reality created by psychological warfare, and the rest of us dealing with the consequences. I described how these totally separate worlds can be thought of as tectonic plates colliding and causing “seismic” events at the boundary.
My approach is to go to the boundary “with a jackhammer and dynamite” because the longer we wait the worse the “earthquake” will be when the tension releases.
Last night I set off some dynamite at the border — by accident, in a way, but I had a feeling this would break through. I was thinking to myself, this story is like a bad movie script except for the part that it’s true, so I wrote a thread off the top of my head and it is going kind of bonkers. Please retweet it.
In the thread, I mention no American names, it’s just the story of what happened from the perspective of the bad guy. There are no links or “receipts” until the end.
Our adversaries understand narrative warfare, especially Mike Flynn and his allies. It’s the reason they have escaped accountability for so long.
Again, our job, should we choose to accept it, is to battle false narratives with real ones. Shine a light on the liars. Shine a light on their lies. Tell the real story and do not be afraid. Here’s the “movie script.”
A decade ago, Putin compromised an American general, obtained military secrets from his top secret servers, and got a free pass to invade Crimea.
After several years of preparation and experiments, they launched a project to brainwash America and overthrow the US government.
In 2016, they succeeded beyond their wildest expectations. Not only did their psyops steal the election for their performative candidate for president, but the general was installed in the White House as well.
But he got greedy. The general’s narcissism caught up with him.
The general was caught by the FBI trying to steer the American government in favor of the Russians *before* the inauguration. So he only lasted for 2.5 Scaramuccis in his dream job.
He had every secret the US has in his treasonous hands. And he blew it.
This made him mad.
Both Putin and the general were highly motivated to get him out of his jam with @TheJusticeDept because otherwise he would have to talk.
Luckily for the general, he comes from a big family, so he enlisted them along with some of the people who helped him steal the 2016 election.
The general’s siblings started a defense fund for him, and his allies created a psyop called “Q” to fill it. They ran it on the worst parts of the internet where the general and his allies had originally done their experiments, e.g. GamerGate — Reddit, 4chan and 8chan.
After three decades in the military radicalizing foreign populations and destabilizing other democracies, the general used his new psyop to create a massive death cult in the US — in addition to using it to generate money.
With the money he raised, he hired a compromised lawyer.
The performative puppet in the White House was motivated to keep the general from having to cooperate as well so he instructed his Attorney General to help.
The general had his new lawyer retract his confession and cooperation.
Then he got the help from the AG that he needed.
The general was let out of his confession to @TheJusticeDept by the AG and his gag order — just in time for him to attack the 2020 election.
He took ownership of his “Q” psyop by taking the QAnon oath in his backyard on the 4th of July. And he called in his “digital soldiers.”
When the general and the Russians failed to flip the results of the 2020 election through psyops and brainwashing, the general moved to trying to prevent the peaceful transition of power.
The puppet president gave the general a “pardon of innocence” for crimes unspecified.
Despite a clear victory by the Democrat, the general, the Russians and the puppet were not finished. The general retired his “Q” psyop and had his death cult focus on the Big Lie instead.
And the entire civilian leadership at the Pentagon was replaced with the general’s allies.
In spite of a complex plot to overthrow the election by corrupting the levers of government, the general’s Plan A didn’t work, so he met with the puppet, his compromised lawyer and two billionaires ready to finance sedition.
They decided on a violent insurrection of the Capitol.
On the same day the general got his “pardon of innocence” his brother, who had three stars, got his fourth.
This allowed him to be promoted to Chief of Staff of @USArmy which in turn allowed him to help his brother ensure the Capitol would be undefended for his insurrection.
For three hours the two generals, one retired and one active, cooperated in a plan to breach the Capitol, murder the Vice President & the Speaker of the House, and reinstall the Kremlin puppet back in office.
This would allow the general to become Vice President himself.
In spite of warnings about their plans well ahead of time, the two generals’ plan came within seconds of succeeding. The Vice President and the Speaker barely escaped with their lives.
Tragically, some law enforcement officers and insurrectionists didn’t survive it.
Despite massive documentation and real-time reporting, the facts of 1/6 were buried. The people responsible managed to escape accountability, including the two generals.
Worse, the active duty brother was promoted to Commanding General of US Army Pacific — @USARPAC.
Every day the two generals angle us toward their goal of creating military conflict with China and civil war in the United States.
Every day the psyops worsen, we near the brink, and our press and government stay silent about what’s really happening.
Shitty movie script, right?
All I can say is the sequel is going to be nuts.
