We Have to Talk About “Psyops”
It’s not a conspiracy theory — we are under attack
I started this chart over a year ago and have been adjusting it on and off ever since. Today I added “Twitter” to the chart. Each of these psychological operations was either intentionally created or intentionally sabotaged by anti-American forces — largely Russian intelligence and their American assets, using military psychological warfare strategy and tactics. We have got to start using the right language.
Psychological operations have been part of warfare throughout human history. There are massive divisions of the U.S. military devoted to, as they abbreviate it, PSYOP.
I’ve written extensively about the people executing these psyops, especially Putin’s General Michael T. Flynn who spent a career “overthrowing countries” using Army PSYOP.
Now the country he’s overthrowing is the United States on behalf of Vladimir Putin. After Flynn stole the 2016 election for Donald Trump using psyops and got caught, he started “Q” to finance and speak for himself, and to create a white nationalist identity cult that he could wield to overthrow the government.
In short, QAnon is a Russian psyop conducted by American traitors led by Mike Flynn.
But in comparison, the takeover of Twitter by psychopathic accelerationist Elon Musk is a far larger victory for fascism in the psychological war that I named my Substack for.

To be clear, Musk himself is the victim of psyops. He is on the ASD spectrum which makes him especially vulnerable to undue influence. No seriously, Elon Musk has been “psyop-ed.” That’s why everyone who knows him says “he’s not the same guy.”
As someone who is neurodiverse, this does not absolve him from being a psychological terrorist, but it may be helpful to understanding his personal psychology.
Regardless, Twitter is now a blatant psychological operation, a psyop, to indoctrinate hundreds of millions of people into a genocidal ideology. It was always designed to shape the narrative while radicalizing its users, but in the singular hands of a messianic psychopath it is — and I mean every word of this, — a danger to humanity.
Within a month, Elon Musk has transformed the platform into an atmosphere like 4chan which is designed to strip away your empathy and “other” everyone else. Musk has reinstated misogynists, transphobes and anti-vaxxers, not to mention Donald Trump — and Musk has 118 million followers to gradually transform into a white nationalist army.
Twitter is now the largest psyop in the history of the world.
It’s nearly impossible to calculate the damage already being done to American minds. A man who was supposed to be a model of entrepreneurial spirit, who was bringing us electric cars and space travel, is now behaving like a common brainwashed 4chan neo-nazi.
Misogyny, transphobia, racism, antisemitism are all being weaponized to the largest captive audience on Earth. It is now exclusively for “owning libs” which is a euphemism for “dismantling democracy.”
Biden and the military need to call this what it is, a psychological attack on American citizens. This is psyops. This is hot war.
We cannot win a war when only one side is fighting it.
