Pope Francis condemned fake news as satanic, stating journalists and social media users should ignore and unmask manipulative “snake tactics” that foster division to serve political and economic interests, Reuters reported.
“Fake news is a sign of intolerant and hypersensitive attitudes and leads only to the spread of arrogance and hatred. That is the end result of untruth,” Francis said.
The Pope writes in the document, called “The truth will set you free — Fake news and journalism for peace,” that spreading fake news can “serve to advance specific goals, influence political decisions, and serve economic interests,” according to the news publication.
He also criticized the “manipulative use of social networks.”
“This false but believable news is ‘captious’, inasmuch as it grasps people’s attention by appealing to stereotypes and common social prejudices, and exploiting instantaneous emotions like anxiety, contempt, anger and frustration,” he said.
He added there is an importance of being able to recognize the “sly and dangerous form of seduction that worms its way into the heart with false and alluring arguments.”
“We need to unmask what could be called the ‘snake-tactics’ used by those (purveyors of fake news) who disguise themselves in order to strike at any time and place,” Francis said.
The Pope previously in 2016 sensationally claimed “that media that focus on scandals and spreading ‘fake news’ to smear politicians risk becoming like the people they have a morbid fascination with excrement.”
Hold on, hold on really you compare reporters holding politicians accountable for their political ties to shady groups, secret societies and potential scandals to eating poop and getting off on it? What?
Yeah we sure did eat a lot of bull sh*t in the past like the Iraq WMDs when the U.S. and U.K. governments colluded to sell the American people fake news that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction to self-investigate Iraq based off forged plagiarized academic papers. It’s also now known thanks to the press that Bush and Blair planned the Iraq invasion a year prior revealed by the emails of Hillary Clinton.
Then there is the Gulf Of Tonkin incident that started the invasion of Vietnam on false pretext when the government at the time lied and said a second Gulf of Tonkin attack had happened. And, finally, the admitted bombing of the Lusitania which started WW1. And while we are talking about false flags to start wars, let’s add in the proposed false flag that JFK stopped, Operation Northwoods; so this seems like an ugly pattern of the sin of treason.
Mr. Pope Francis what do you have to say about this well-sourced but disturbing information? Even ex-governor and Navy Seal Jesse Ventura has came out and spoken out about the Gulf Of Tonkin incident and how all wars are started with a false flag.
