The Seduction of Satire.

Hilary Butler - Sunday, January 22, 2017

  

The Onion, which calls itself “America’s finest news source”, filled space with another vitriol variant on Mike Pence today. “What Hilary? You don’t like satire? It’s just words Hilary. Humour makes the world go around didn’t you know?”

What I know is that death and life are in the power of words, and those who love words, will eat the fruit of them,  and by their fruits you will know them

Satire isn’t humour. Satire is writing lying words as if they are coming from another person’s mouth. Satire is written from a veneer of hatred, and its purpose is to shame and humiliate. It’s also a subtle variant of public fear mongering. Hidden beneath the cloak of people’s laughter, satire is designed to plant into people’s minds perceptions about people which are a stereotype, assumed, or even fabricated.

Oh, we’ve all heard those words,Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never hurt you.Never was a bigger lie written than that one. Words are seeds, which are planted and grow.

Words have started wars which have killed millions of innocent front-line soldiers on both sides, because someone took offense to words. Historians who know the effects of words, will know which words were spoken, that so riled Hitler, that he decided to take matters into his own hands, giving us the holocaust and World War II.

But did the people who spoke those words which resulted in shame and humiliation for a country after World War I, ever dream that those words would become the fuel which would set fire to Europe as the Second World War, and also result in ethnic cleansing?

But back to Trump.

Is satire funny to those who are at the butt end of it? Those who are crying in their beards about Donald Trump being president should perhaps consider the impact that satire can have, particularly when it’s done publicly, deliberately, and cynically.

America is now eating the FRUIT of the words spoken by President Obama who chose to use satire to relentlessly humiliate and shame Donald Trump in front of the nation.



America can also thank the previous and ONGOING serial lying out of the mouths of the main stream media, for the election of Trump, by people who saw the previous satire and the lies for what they were.

Listening must be followed by analysis, then a choice.  Believe it, or not. Then comes the action.

I see the outcome of voices, choices and consequences whenever parents come to me with a vaccine-damaged child. The story is always the same, every time.  Parents listened to lies, believed the lies, and never bothered to read the vaccine data sheets in the doctors’ hands, which usually detail exactly the problems their children now have. They made a choice based on trusting a doctor, believing the lies, which resulted in the damage to their child.

The system of course, calls the vaccine damage “coincidence”, then labels the parents “anti-vaccine” idiots, and throws them off the cliff.

The parents then become angry at the system for lying in the first place, lying again, and then leaving the parents to pick up the mess that resulted from them believing the system’s lies in the first place.

After the lies, damned lies and statistics used by the pro-vaccine zealots, SATIRE mixed with as much dripping sarcasm as possible, (which amounts to character and intelligence assassination) is considered by the pro-vaccine to be the best way to sow all the propaganda you can imagine into the minds of parents who are thinking about vaccines. “Oh, but anti-anti-vaccine satire is only humour, Hilary!”

Dream on.

This last year has been a revelation to me. We can’t complain we live in boring times. It’s like the curtains have been pulled back to reveal the many faces of deception and mind manipulation everywhere.

Hopefully, those with eyes to see, will take note, and understand, because the satire and lies on all fronts, are the ways of the world, and part of a universal, well-orchestrated escalating campaign.

Those who know the truth, also know that evil communications – or as some would say – bad company - corrupts good manners.  The words you listen to and believe, have a defined outcome.  The words you speak can result in consequences....  ...
