A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

There's Something Up With That Van From The Charlottesville Car Attack

 

This would have to have been taken right after impact.

Does it look like there is anyone in the driver's seat?

Where's the driver?

Looks like an empty seat. Oh, there's some people but no evidence anyone was in the driver's seat. Odd.

Why were any of these cars here in an area that appears to be closed off to traffic?

This is after the camera pans away and then pans back. Please watch the video below. I honestly don't know what to make of this. What am I missing? Am I just not seeing the person who should be in the driver's seat for some reason? Do you see the person? Is it me? Was the minivan being pushed by the car behind it? I wouldn't be surprised if I am mistaken, but I really think there something weird here. Maybe with further thought and research it will make sense. I am just going by the footage and haven't read enough of the narrative, so perhaps there is an explanation that makes sense, or perhaps there is an explanation that doesn't really make much sense. That's all for now. I'm tired and going to bed after posting something about a photographer who was a witness to the event as a post script to this article. Perhaps a future article will get into this further, or perhaps not. I think it wiser to probably avoid these kind of stories in the first place, but this one caught my interest. I can't seem to easily find any interviews with the drivers of the other cars, I haven't done an exhaustive search so this is something that for me is an open question. I find it very odd that we can't see the driver in the minivan, we also can't seem to see the driver in the white car either, but that driver's side window appears to be rolled down and that driver could be in shadow.. And of course the tinted windows of the deadly Dodge Charger makes it impossible to see who is driving that car.

This could be a carefully crafted crisis-rolepalying, crowd controlled stunt with Hollywood stunt people and break away rigged bumpers. The empty streets are just too convenient, but hey sometimes Lady Fortune does smile on us.


Why does it look like nobody is driving the purple minivan?

Why wasn't the Dodge Charger's airbag activated as a result of what appears to be a high speed impact?


A Photographer Post Script:

"The photographer Pat Jarrett, who witnessed the incident, said: “A gray Dodge Charger plowed into a sedan and then into a minivan. Bodies flew. People were terrified and screaming. Those closest to it said it was definitely a violent attack. The driver, who people later described as a skinny white guy with a straggly beard, reversed out of there and drove off, the front end of his car all smashed up.” "

The Photographer's Account Is Worthless Propaganda Garbage

Please take special note how the photographer's account is hearsay. We have no source for the description of the assailant. We have the photographer claiming "people" saw the driver. The Dodge Charger's windows were tinted making this claim seem to be, at the very least, somewhat, questionable. "Those closest to it saw..." is not a reliable witness. Why wouldn't reporters seek actual sources for the story? What real reporter relies on obvious second hand and third hand sources? Even if the journalist quoted actual people, people can lie. Even thirty three different sources all claiming the  same thing, can be scripted fictions. In this case we don't even have that luxury. The above account is clearly useless hearsay. I'm assuming we are supposed to think that the witnesses the photographer is referring to were on the hood of the car and could see in through the windshield, or perhaps the insane driver rolled his windows down for some odd reason, to get a breath of fresh air, as he made his reverse get away.


The racist dude's Dodge Charger has tinted windows. It doesn't seem like any witness would have been able to identify this guy.

Does this guy look like he has a straggly beard to you? I'd say a 5 o'clock shadow is a better description.

Post Script: Magical Synchronicity

So Many Coincidence Occur With Stories Like These, What Are The Odds?  This witness cheated death 3 times in 3 months. Wow!

Must be nice to be a young person with time to spend three months traveling the world. Does she work or is that her job, what do you think?


"ESCAPE FROM EVIL"

"Barcelona attack – Aussie woman, 26, has cheated death THREE times in three months after who getting caught in Barcelona, London Bridge and Notre Dame terror attacks Julia Monaco was in a shopping centre with pals when terrorists ploughed a van into a crowd on Las Ramblas"

"Julia said they didn’t see the van, but witnessed people screaming and running for their lives in the immediate aftermath. She said: "People were literally pushing to get into the store off the street … we were genuinely terrified. "It was genuinely like they were running for their lives, it was genuine fear you could see, more than just panic." "

What is the more rational explanation? Magic coincidence or contrived witness?

Magical synchronicity cannot explain this. In fact magical synchronicity  as explanation for events like these is an absurd assumption that deserves no attention. It is a fantastic ad hoc shot in the dark that is an obviously piss poor attempt at damage control. It might have more than just some effect as too many of us seem to be inclined to superstitious style imaginings. Yes coincidences happen, but in the context of this being part of a series of clearly hyped News media stories that do not deserve global attention, the most likely explanation is a form of simple word of mouth deception.
