Was just reading the news on CBC. Yeah I torture myself, but hey I am paying or it so I may as well monitor where my money is going. They have a badly written little blurb up about how the RCMP spied on the Ottawa Occupy movement, complete with its usual spin and link to drug addicts. I decided to comment, again I clearly am masochistic, and of course my opinion is not worth putting up according to the moderators at ICUC, the private moderation company which we are also paying for to censor the opinions of CBC posters! But I digress...
Here is my post:
This is SOP for governments the world over and it is nothing new.
The above documentary highlights the career of Mark Kennedy, who went undercover to infliltrate the eco movements in the UK and Europe.
What is probably the scariest thing about this is when the moles themselves co-opt the movement and further radicalise the membership in order to create a 'divide and conquer' scenario. We have seen this play out over and over again, especially with movements which bridge politcal and socio-economic divides. Can't have people agreeing can we? They might actually see who is REALLY responsible for the misery in their lives, better to divert attention.
Smoke and Mirrors.
It clearly does not violate any posting guidelines and is on topic, but hey the CBC is big on censorship of ideas lately, and it only is getting worse. Heck it's worse now than even six months ago. Don't bother calling the Ombudsman either, the guy is clearly a gatekeeper and disinfo stooge.
I highly recommend the above film, Confessions of an Undercover Cop
Keep this in mind the next time you see any demonstration or protest.
