Posted on 07/05/2020 5:35:06 AM PDT by Kaslin
After weeks of violence, Democrats have some public relations needs to redirect attention away from the awfulness of leftism.
Insert the latest report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), which concludes that the greatest domestic threat comes not from leftists or Muslims, but from right-wing terrorists!
The CSIS study's findings are not new. The New America Foundation (NAF) and the Center of Investigative Reporting (CIR) have published similar studies with the same conclusions.
Each study is fake, but the most recent CSIS study is the most pathetic of them all partly because the CSIS doesn't provide a list of incidents to fact-check. Just trust them.
There's an art to creating this type of propaganda, which provides the Democrat narrative a halo of credibility. A tremendous volume of subtle manipulation is concocted within studies on right-wing terrorism, and each demonstrates variations of the same basic formula.
1. Use "incidents" as a key metric
Written in the methodology of the CSIS study is this: "We coded threats of violence as attacks rather than plots, even if the threat turned out to be a hoax."
This statement is an incredible admission. The CSIS includes threats of violence as terrorist attacks even if the threat was a hoax.

“The left” includes Wray and other inside the beltway types.
This proves it beyond any shadow of a doubt:
Thank you for posting this!
‘Fake studies’ is a euphemism for lying.
Way to ramp it up! Of course, all the "threats" came from supposed right-wingers (never leftists seminar posters posing as right-wingers).
"You're an idiot who deserves to get punched in the face!". Oh, did a Righty say that? ATTACK!
I gotta go hurl...
Very well done. It gives examples and shows how these numbers are generated as propaganda, while claiming to be factual.
The Left lies. Plain and simple. They conform “evidence” to match their narratives and opportunistically use whatever is at hand.
Ive been observing this.
Glad you posted the article. I thought I was the only one that had reached this conclusion.
CSIS be damned!
It’s part and parcel of the Big Lie Technique. Tell a big enough lie long enough and people accept it as fact.
Definitions need to be clarified on the political spectrum
Totalitarian on the left (total control) with Anarchist on the right (No Control)
The US Constitution is smack dad in the middle.
Notice that they do not suggest merely opposition to abortion policies but opposition to certain policies such as abortion. Basically, right-wing terrorists are defined as anyone who opposes the left, plus incels.
I am behind the times since the LEFT has been moving the language goal posts. Like the 'cis' prefix attached to almost everything 'gendered', INCELS is one that I had to look up. This word 'created' in the last generation, started as a forced abbreviation of 'involuntary' and 'celibate', invcel, to define (Wikipedia);
member[s] of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one. Discussions in incel forums are often characterized by resentment, misogyny, misanthropy, self-pity and self-loathing, racism, a sense of entitlement to sex, and the endorsement of violence against sexually active people. ... Many sources report that incels are predominantly white, although a group of researchers have argued that there is no definitive proof to support this claim.
The reason I identify this as coming from Wiki is the near nauseating pile of descriptors and that almost all of the citations come from the usual LEFT sources like Vox, NYT, CNN, The Guardian etc.
Isn’t that what I was emphasizing, or did I not make that clear?
You only quoted the very first part of the sentence in your post, so it looks like you missed part of it or didn’t see it. But the rest of your post did bring up the hoaxes
I guess I didn’t make myself clear...
