In the wake of a tsunami of “lone nut” shootings that have flooded the United States in recent months, mainstream news sources are at last publishing extensive articles that dare to mention the formerly taboo word known as “gangstalking.” As could be expected, the “journalists” responsible for these articles distort the facts for the purpose of portraying innocent victims of organized government harassment as paranoid schizophrenics. The first of these propagandistic hit pieces was Mike McPhate’s 6-10-16 New York Times article entitled “United States of Paranoia: They See Gangs of Stalkers.” This hack job, which could easily have been churned out by a third rate word processor with no help from a human being, contains such wonderfully inane reportage as:
“Dr. Lorraine Sheridan, who is co-author of perhaps the only study of gang-stalking, said the community poses a danger that sets it apart from other groups promoting troubling ideas, such as anorexia or suicide. On those topics, the internet abounds with medical information and treatment options. An internet search for ‘gang-stalking,’ however, turns up page after page of results that regard it as fact. ‘What’s scary for me is that there are no counter sites that try and convince targeted individuals that they are delusional,’ Dr. Sheridan said.”
Ah, yes, the New York Times has revealed the astonishing truth: The most serious problem that has emerged as a result of the unconstitutional gangstalking program is that not enough victims of organized government harassment are being assured by competent mental health professionals that they’re hopelessly delusional. If only psychiatrists dictated the content of the internet, a new day would soon dawn in America….
If you have any interest at all in learning what the phenomenon of gangstalking is really all about, I suggest listening to my latest interview on Brandon Holmes’ excellent podcast called The Straight Line (which broadcasts out of a shipping container in Brooklyn). This turned out to be one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had during any interview so far. Posted yesterday, this interview covers the possible connections among the gang stalking phenomenon and recent mass shootings in San Bernardino, Orlando, and Dallas. (Note: The interview predates the Baton Rouge shootings by one week). To listen to the entirety of The Straight Line interview, click HERE.
