The Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic

CJ Hopkins

I suppose it was always just a matter of time until the global capitalist ruling classes and their mouthpieces in the corporate media combined their two main official narratives into a Ronco-type 2-in-1 kind of deal. That’s right, folks, your days of switching between the War on Terror official narrative and the Putin-Nazi official narrative are over, because now, for just $19.99, the Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic® takes care of all your official narrative needs with just the press of one button!

Here’s how it works. First, you take your classic mentally-disturbed individual, someone like, say, John Hinkley, Jr., Mark David Chapman, or Travis Bickle, or a total wack job like Cesar Sayoc, and you paint whichever clearly psychotic crimes he’s committed as acts of “terrorism.” Don’t worry about the definition of “terrorism” or how it has become a virtually meaningless label the capitalist ruling classes and corporate media can slap onto anyone. Just keep saying “terrorist,” “terrorism,” and any other lexical derivatives of “terror,” over and over, like some kind of mantra … you know, like the Hare Krishnas do.

Next, you take whatever obsession your disturbed individual is maniacally obsessed with, and you paint that obsession as an “ideology,” or some kind of organized political movement, as if your wack job was actually a rational person and not just a totally paranoid geek who decided to attempt to assassinate Reagan because he couldn’t get a date with Jodie Foster, or to murder John Lennon because God had instructed him to do so in a J. D. Salinger novel.

Now, this works much better if your disturbed individual is actually obsessed with something political, like, say, if he’s a Donald Trump fanatic who has plastered the windows of the van he’s living in with all sorts of blatantly psychotic artwork deifying Donald Trump and demonizing Donald Trump’s political opponents, but you’ll have to work with what your lunatic gives you. In any event, whatever his pathology, you will need to de-pathologize your psycho, so you can misrepresent him as a “domestic terrorist,” and then associate whatever “ideology” you’ve just painted onto him with “terrorism.”

If that sounds a little complicated, don’t worry, folks, it’s really not! The ruling classes and the corporate media just provided us with a demonstration of the Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic in action, which proves how easy-to-use it is. In the span of just a single week, they whipped up so much mass paranoia that, by the weekend, millions of hysterical liberals were calling for a Deep State coup, and the arrest and internment of all registered Republicans, because a right-wing loon had sent a bunch of non-exploding bomblike devices to prominent members of the neoliberal “Resistance,” or rather, to their respective mail-screening services.

These Putin-Nazi Terrorist “bomb-like devices” were “intercepted” throughout last week. Their targets were a roll call of Resistance heroes, Soros, Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, the offices of CNN, Eric Holder, Maxine Waters, Joe Biden, and, yes, even Robert De Niro! Putin-Nazi panic paralyzed the nation! The neoliberal corporate media (who, remember, are serious, respected professionals, not conspiracist nuts like Alex Jones) began pouring out pieces informing the world that Donald Trump was behind these attacks, or had encouraged, “emboldened,” or “inspired” whoever was with his violent, neo-Hitlerian rhetoric.

The Washington Post went full Shakespearean with Dana Milbank’s What Hath Trump Wrought? The New York Times explained how Trump was employing a strategy called “stochastic terrorism,” i.e., inspiring random acts of violence that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable! “Trump’s words have consequences,” The Guardian lectured. “Words matter,” CNN concurred. John Brennan, who courageously continued to appear on television, despite the ongoing terrorist threat, affirmed that Trump’s “un-American” rhetoric had “emboldened individuals to take matters into their own hands.” Even “alternative” Resistance outlets like Truthout joined the chorus of voices reporting that “Trump’s Rhetoric Emboldens Violence!”

By Thursday morning, #MAGAbomber, #MAGATerrorist, and other such hashtags were circulating widely on Twitter. Which meant it was only a matter of time until the Resistance linked these stochastically-terrorist MAGA bomber attacks to Russia. On Thursday evening, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd did exactly that, speculating that “this could be a Russian operation!” (Washington Post propagandist Craig Timberg, author of the infamous McCarthyite smear piece on “peddlers of Russian propaganda” that got the whole “fake news” hysteria going back in December 2016, would soon follow up with this ridiculous attempt to connect the “MAGA Terrorist” to Russia … but I’m getting a little ahead of myself.)

By Friday, after anti-Terrorism specialists (or the kids that work in the mail screening room) “intercepted” more “bomb-like devices” addressed to Senator Cory Booker and ex-National Intelligence Director James Clapper, the neoliberal punditocracy were soiling themselves on national television. This was it! The long-awaited Putin-Nazi Apocalypse had finally begun! And just as Paul Krugman had prophesied it would … or, OK, not exactly like that, but still, Trump was, once again, about to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, and appoint himself dictator! Clearly, Putin had ordered Trump to launch the destruction of Western democracy by deploying the dreaded Totally Incompetent Domestic Terrorist Mail Bomber Strategy … and just in time for the midterm elections!

And then, just like that, they caught him … Cesar “the Jackal” Sayoc, Jr., the terrorist mastermind that had nearly perpetrated another 9-11-type event, and who was sleeping in his van behind an auto parts store! As is standard procedure for terrorist sleeper agents, Sayoc, until he was “activated,” had been maintaining a totally low-profile cover as juiced-up, body-building, racist male stripper with an extensive criminal record and an obsession with Trump. Like the “Skripal assassins” and other Putin-Nazi operatives, he had made a point of getting himself photographed and noticed by witnesses in various public places, and otherwise drawing attention to himself, which is one of the first things they teach you at the Kremlin. Sayoc hasn’t yet divulged the names and ranks of his handlers in the GRU, but, presumably, Eliot Higgins and Bellingcat are hard at work googling that right this minute.

In the meantime, the liberal corporate media have been working the Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic on a more or less 24/7 basis. It is crucial at a time like this, when mass hysteria is reaching peak levels, that the public not be allowed to believe that this “MAGA Terrorist” is merely one more pathetic, attention-seeking geek who decided to vent his impotent rage on those he perceived as his mortal enemies. Same goes for the Pittsburgh synagogue attacker, who struck as I was writing this piece. Never mind that this homicidal idiot did not like Trump, who he condemned as a “Jew-lover.” In order to maintain the official narrative, the ruling classes need us to believe that he was not just another anti-Semite with a gun collection and a account, but, rather, an official “domestic terrorist,” who was probably “radicalized” by Donald Trump’s rhetoric!

Look, I’m no fan of Donald Trump, or racism, or anti-Semitism, or any other type of bigotry (despite what my smear-happy former editors at CounterPunch would like you to believe). What I am is a student of the production of ideology. I lived through the deployment of the official “War on Terror” narrative after 9-11, and then watched in frustration as millions of Americans mindlessly supported a war of aggression, the abrogation of many of their civil liberties, torture, and various other atrocities, based on nothing but propaganda and media-generated mass hysteria.

We are experiencing a similarly historic ideological readjustment at the moment, which I’ve been trying to capture (satirically and more seriously) since it began in the summer of 2016. The official “War on Terror” narrative (and people’s understanding of what “terrorism” is) is being gradually redefined and expanded to encompass any and all forms of “extremism” (i.e., whatever the ruling classes decide is “extremism”). Mass murder, battery, racist graffiti, opposing the spread of global capitalism, saying nasty things about Soros, tattooing your forehead with a giant Swastika, using the words “globalism,” “sovereignty,” and so on … the distinctions are rapidly disappearing. 

The media-generated mass hysteria over Islamic terrorism during the War on Terror is being replaced with media-generated mass hysteria over Nazis and Russians (unless you’re a die-hard Trump supporter, in which case, you’ve got your immigration hysteria, but my focus is on ruling class ideology, which, despite the existence of Donald Trump, remains neoliberal, supranational, and, yes, God help me, globalist in nature).

Any and all forms of opposition to global capitalist ideology, regardless of whether they come from the Left or the Right, are being stigmatized as “extremism,” and thus inextricably linked to “terrorism.” I described this, back in January, as a global capitalist “War on Dissent,” and I think events over the last ten months have largely confirmed my diagnosis.

I’d love to go on, but this essay is already way too long for people’s phones, and the midterm elections are fast approaching, so this is no time for critical thinking … and plus, news is just coming in from Guardian columnist Christina Patterson that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are also responsible for the Pittsburgh attack, and for “emboldening” all these “extremists” and “terrorists,” and for “normalizing” anti-Semitism and fascism, and mass murder, and who knows what other atrocities, and I don’t want to miss a chance to catch the Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic in action!

    I see that Putin’s Deep Coulibiac terrorist handlers have ganged up with Xi’s Deep Shrimp terrorist handlers and Solberg’s Deep Lutefisk terrorist handlers to scupper the CCAMLR’s proposed agreement to turn the Weddell Sea region into an off-limits for huntin’, shootin’ , fishin’, drillin’, minin’ and etcer’ wildlife sanctuary over the contrary intentions of other nineteen Deep Member States’ terrorist handlers to back it. Bit of an inconvient undoubtedly false fact round here, what?

  2. alkdjalkdj says

    Behold yet another miserable Trump leftist. It is so bizarre how this billionaire globalist capitalist has run circles around Trump leftists. Do I support corporate Democrats, the corporate MSM, wars of Empire, and the rest of the miserable mess? No. Did I vote for Hillary Clinton? No.

    One thing for certain, is I can entertain the very real possibility if not probability that the strongest faction of any Deep State supports Trump, supports Trump’s finger cutting alliance with Saudi Arabia (no I didn’t just discount every other war crime by comparison), and supports how the fascist Trump is absolutely engaged in stoking hate among white nationalists (intentionally sans-cap), and every other violent right wing group.

    The whole “should we call this terrorism” canard is wholly beside the point to the very unique danger of Trump and his Deep State allies.

    Ooops……..I made an error. This author takes Trump very seriously, and regards any and all Trump business dealings with Russian oligarchs in the same vein that he regards the Clintons’ many dark corporate ties.

    My bad.

      What are “White Nationalists”?
      Isn’t this just Identity Politics for White People?
      Identity Politics works just fine for Blacks, Jews, Moslems, Hispanics, Women (or is it Wimmin? WMXN??), Gays, Trannies, Demiguys, Demigirls, 57 Varieties of Perverts and Degenerates, so why not Whitey as well?

  3. Gezzah Potts says

    In my humblest, most modest opinion CJ….. You rock! Love your work, tho had a wee chuckle when I read about the ‘Neoliberal resistance’! Isn’t that a bit of an oxymoron? You post anything on a mainstream ‘propaganda’ service, and the trolls shoot you down as a Kremlin bot or a Russian troll. I won’t touch a drop of Kool Aid. Would much rather read articles like yours, and read all the various comments from others who Get how the World really operates.

    • Mulga Mumblebrain says

      To peddle the Western narrative concerning Russia under Putin, one must be moronic, pig ignorant and/or a lying hypocrite.

  4. And – “poof” – just like a well executed magic trick – the Khashoggi murder carnival all but disappears and is replaced in the Western MSM news cycle by something a bit more useful to the deep state apparatus – and low and behold just before the mid-term elections in the U.S. How utterly serendipitous.

  5. mark says

    Am I the only one who finds the pipe bombs hoax/ Pittsburgh shootings entirely predictable and unsurprising coming just before the mid term elections???
    First, we have the standard issue FBI lone weirdo patsy straight out of central casting, a homeless unemployed inadequate living in a van. He sends “pipe bombs” without any explosives or detonating mechanism to all the main “Resistance heroes”, Soros, Brennan, Clinton, De Niro.
    This serves several purposes. It demonises Trump and his base and excuses the very real violence and intimidation of the Radical Left/ Deep State/ Soros funded Antifa/ BLM that is openly condoned and incited by the MSM. As this individual apparently posted something on Gab, it provides a pretext for closing down the site and alternative media in general, preserving the MSM monopoly, with the Soros/ NATO funded Atlantic Council helpfully deciding what we are allowed to see. It also provides a welcome diversion/ distraction from the Khashoggi murder which was becoming something of an embarrassment to western elites, removing it from the news cycle.
    Just as questions were beginning to be asked about this latest hoax, this was in turn cast down the Memory Hole by the Pittsburgh shooting. Whether this was planned by the elites or entirely fortuitous from their point of view is open to question. Certainly there are lone homicidal nut jobs of all stripes (like Baruch Goldstein who gunned down scores of Palestinian worshippers at a mosque, killing 30, becoming a Zionist settler hero whose grave became a shrine and place of pilgrimage.) The Deep State would happily sacrifice some elderly Jews without much compunction if it served their purposes. This is further grist to the mill, with the MSM blaming Trump, and bemoaning the new epidemic of “Anti Semitism.” The alternative media must be strictly censored and controlled by MSM gatekeepers, or closed down entirely. Any criticism of Soros and his activities, Globalism, Wall Street, or the Deep State, has to be closed down as “Anti Semitism.”
    These incidents were predicted and expected for some time in the run up to the Mid Terms. There will probably be at least one further hoax before election day.

    • Stonky says

      It is quite remarkable how a week ago nobody in the MSM could talk about anything except Kashmal Jashoggi, and now that story has literally disappeared off the face of the earth.

  6. harry stotle says

    Oh, the irony, the sheer unadulterated irony of it all.

    Christina Pattersons, on national TV no less, claims Robert Bowers was in some way influenced by the words and deeds of Jeremy Corbyn after the Labour leader was found guilty by the corporate media of being an anti-semite racist (a meme championed by the Guardian primarily).

    Now anybody with more than 2 functioning neurons worked out long ago that the media pursuit of Corbyn was in fact little more than a right wing smear campaign (involving some extremely unpleasent characters like Margaret Hodge) to;
    [a] weaken any threat to Britain’s neoliberal establishment of which Hodge, Blair, Chuka, et al are members, and;
    [b] to make it harder to criticise apartheid in Israel.

    In other words the kind of anti-semitism Patterson alludes to doesn’t actually exist except as an invention designed to both thwart and further certain political aims – this is not to say that anti-semitism doesn’t exist, but that it presents virtually no existential threat to Jews if limited to the injudicious use of language by a few Labour MPs or activists.

    So what is Patterson saying – Bowers senseless shooting of 17 Jewish worshipers (11 who died) was all because of a cynical media campaign to spread lies about Jeremy Corbyn, because if you can find me a single anti-semitic utterance made by him I have yet to hear it.

    • frank says

      “The Deep State would happily sacrifice some elderly Jews without much compunction if it served their purposes.”

      True, but I suspect nobody died & the bios of the “11” victims are forged or stolen. Either way, they did 9/11 remember.

      On the topic of patsies:

      FBI ‘entrapment’ tactics (rt)

      Inside the FBI’s ‘Terror factory’ (rt)

      “Stein is facing 15 years to life on charges of weapons of mass destruction and conspiracy against civil rights. He was convicted in April alongside two other Kansas militiamen for plotting with an FBI informant and undercover agent to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City, where Muslim refugees from Somalia lived.”

      These are just some examples of what’s out in the public.

      • frank says

        ^^^ was a reply to ‘mark’ (“Am I the only one who finds…”)

    • Mulga Mumblebrain says

      Patterson, as well as being a typically hysterical Identity Politics feminazi, has a nice line in racist contempt for the North Koreans, not proper ‘Judeo-Christian’ Westerners, dontcha know. Despite all the phony persiflage about loving multicultualism, it must be on Western terms, so Korea’s history of four million murdered and the country turned to rubble by US Evil, and their right to defend themselves from a repetition, is dismissed. Israel’s right to murder the Palestinians at will and attack all its neighbours incessantly, is, of course, sacrosanct. And the filthy vilification of Corbyn, and linking him to the Philadelphia atrocity, is simply unspeakably Evil and despicable, but it emanates from a Fraudian feminazi Harpy, so what can you expect.

      • Gezzah Potts says

        Agree again with you Mulga. Yes, the ‘campaign’ against Corbyn is just disgusting. But that’s the new tactic: smears and censorship to shut people up.

    • mark says

      Anti Semitism used to mean hating or disliking Jews.
      Now it means anyone who is themselves hated by rabid Zionists, or who has “hurt their feelings.”

  7. DunGroanin says

    Good article!

    Couple of questions for us all :

    Why hasn’t the Pittsburgh shootings been called a terrorist attack?

    How is the gunman still alive?

    How do the fearful, demented, armed ‘white’ peoples get to be so cock sure in their beliefs?

    Well, it’s their media enablers weasel wordsmiths, as identified by such excellent real investigative journalism as this

    Nasty nasty nasty venomous wormtongues.

    • marge says

      The so called “fearful, demented, armed ‘white’ peoples” did not exist until the media created them.

      These events are orchestrated to make people like us fight amongst ourselves.

      Case in point:

      The left, the right, liberals, conservatives, everything and everybody has been co-opted and turned into extremes to drown out legitimate voices.

  8. Stonky says

    Just for clarity. Has there yet been any clear and unambiguous statement from any informed source that these “pipe bombs” actually contained any explosive, and if so what that explosive was and where Sayoc got hold of it?

  9. Makropulos says

    Actually it’s a lot simpler than CJH makes out. The fact is that the media can link anything at all with anything else by simply putting them together in the same sentence and repeating the sentence. And if they change their mind, they just repeat a different sentence. It’s like that famous scene in Orwell’s 84 where a group of folk are chanting hatred at somebody and the news-speakers change the identity of the hated one in mid-sentence and nobody notices.

    • harry stotle says

      I think you are on to something – repetition, endless repetition of certains ideas is the key to embedding certain narratives.
      Of course, allied to repetition is an insinuating tone that leaves the reader in no doubt that the target in various MSM articles must be guilty of something.

      The Guardian’s war lover, Nick Cohen is an exemplar.

      Whatever Nick writes about these days, and no matter how tangenital the topic the piece invariably ends with dire warnings about Jeremy Corbyn, including gratuitous accusations of antisemitism.

      It might not be so bad if it the repetition/insinuation technique was limited to derranged outliers like Cohen but they are all it.

      Chritina Patterson in the wake of the Synagogue murders can’t have known anything about Robert Bowers (beyond the usual social media titbits) yet there she was on national TV proffering complex theories about Bower’s motives and how they were in some way related to a funeral Jeremy Corbyn attended in Tunis in 2014, or a meeting he had with Sami Chakrabarti in 2016.

      This is what happens when they get carried away with their own self importance – they fail to grasp that once you start pontificating from a position of ideology rather than fact there is a fair chance you might end up sounding like a prize twat.

      • frank says

        A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.
        If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.
        The rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious.
        The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.
        It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.
        The English follow the principle that when one lies, it should be a big lie, and one should stick to it.
        If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.

      A large majority of people have watched so much TV that they have literally been made stupid. They’ll believe most things a man or woman in a suit on the BBC/CNN/MSNBC tells them.

      • harry stotle says

        The MSM wouldn’t be doing it’s job if it were otherwise – imagine if they had the guts to tell the public the unvarnished truth about how their lives are in effect little more than a means for wealth owners to accumulate a greater share of the pie.

        The so-called ‘war on terror’ or ‘war on drugs’ are little more than a business strategy for rapacious necons, while useful idiots like Christina Patterson do their bit to distract viewers from the structural cause of these calamities with bullshit about Jeremy Corbyn.

        • Mulga Mumblebrain says

          I really cannot see why Corbyn does not sue this demented Harpy for the vile accusation that he is somehow responsible for the Pittsburgh atrocity. It is a hate-crazed lie so vicious, so false, so wicked, that it even surpasses the Fraudian hate and lie machine’s usual fare. All driven, in the end, by a psychopathic hatred of anyone who dares treat the Palestinians as human beings and victims of Zionazi Evil.

          • Robbobbobin says

            “I really cannot see why Corbyn does not sue…”

            There’s a humanly-possible limit to the number of actionable defamations somebody with a fan-base like Corbyn’s could even enumerate, let alone pursue.

  10. I agree with much of what you say, but there’s surely a demonstrable link, if not a simple causal chain, between words and deeds? I am thinking of the spike in hate-crimes in the UK after the Brexit referendum. Some people, like Arron Banks, for example, tried to dismiss this as a blip.

  11. milosevic says

    Does anybody really believe that this Useful Idiot is anything more than a patsy?

    Were the authors of the Official Narrative just sitting around, hoping against hope that some random, previously-unknown Domestic Terrorist would spontaneously leap into action at the critical moment, so as to illustrate the next chapter of the Putin-Nazi Terrorist Apocalypse?

    The people with the greatest confidence in miraculously fortuitous coincidences, are almost certainly those who are in a position to orchestrate them.

    The house always wins in the long run, and usually even in the short run. It’s almost like somebody planned it that way.

    the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor.

      A post at Investment Watch reveals the non-bomber Cesar Sayoc boasted of his connection to a particularly loathsome CIA agent, Enrique Prado.

      “O’Keefe claims another scalp…”
      “A national field director for the left-leaning Americans United for Change was fired on Monday after the release of an undercover video that showed him saying he hired mentally ill people to protest at Donald Trump events.
      Scott Foval, the now former national field director for Americans United for Change, describes in one video how he convinces people to do “conflict engagement” at rallies for the GOP presidential nominee.
      “We have mentally ill people who we pay to do shit, make no mistake,” he says.
      Fovall also said he wanted his hires to be attacked at Trump events.
      “If you’re there and you’re protesting and you do these actions, you will be attacked at Trump rallies. That’s what we want,” Foval says on the undercover video released by conservative activist James O’Keefe. “The whole point of it is that we know that Trump’s people will freak the f— out, his security team will freak out, and his supporters will lose their shit.”
      There is more to the story and O’Keefe’s video at the link.

      These ‘crime stories’ are illustrative if you just think a little. Most (if not all) of them are solved by someone ratting somebody out.
      They are not solved by “police work” even over many years.
      Somehow, in these frauds, there is an action and an almost ”immediate” capture….
      Why can’t they do that for real life murders and rapes? Could it be because those are “real” and they haven’t put a patsy in place to take the fall?

          More than 2 links probably. It says so in the bit above the comment box.

  13. CJ I’ve noticed the Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic® also has a reverse action cleaning program.

    Where a bona fide Nazi sympathiser or, depending on your thinking, actual Nazi can be cleaned up for the Neo-liberal Sainthood Accolade® hall of fame. John McCain, being the most recent example of this wonderful white wash rinse and spin program.

    Despite pictures and videos appearing on the modern media of the internet, where even sharing photo and video ops with Nazis and known terrorists are miraculously wiped from the consciousness of the WMSM and conveniently dumped in the War on Terror Memory Hole facility.

    Of course this option does not come cheap as it is only available to the outrageously wealthy and their acolytes who are of a like mind – irrespective of ideology. The most recent being MbS who seems to have, temporarily or not, run into trouble with his franchise arrangement.

    • Stonky says

      An early beneficiary of this valuable option deserves mention. Step forward Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia.

      The devotion to the Ku Klux Klan that led him to found a chapter of the movement in Sophia, WV, and recruit 150 members… His charmingly and pithily expressed opinion: “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds…”

      None of that proved any serious obstacle to Byrd’s meteoric rise to the highest heights of the Democratic Party. Bill Clinton was more than happy to offer him a fulsome eulogy when he died. That scourge of the KKK, his wife, was more than happy to describe him as “my great friend and mentor…”

      It’s a tawdry insult to describe the Putin-Nazi-Terrorist-O-Matic® as a “piece of kit”. It is a sorcerer’s weapon of quite literally magical properties.
