I recently spoke with an old friend/acquaintance. This same person was telling me two years ago about refrigerator trucks and bodies piling up from COVID, refused to leave her house and was sterilizing her grocery deliveries with clorox wipes. I remember trying to get her to see that she was a victim of propaganda, to no effect. She insisted she was behaving rationally and I was the foolish one.
So I visit her again, and of course this time she's going on and on about Russia/Ukraine. COVID is just a distant memory now. She had the Ukraine flag displayed in her window, despite probably never being aware of this country just a few short weeks ago.
She was basically repeating every single western media propaganda talking point you can think of, even if they contradicted each other. Like how the Russian military is getting whipped and how they're completely incompetent, but then the next sentence saying we should be sending American troops over there to fight Russia because Ukraine needs help. She claimed Russia was "communist" and that someone should assassinate Putin. Keep in mind this is like a 65 year old liberal, leftist woman, with a college degree.
I noticed she had a kind of nervous tick, like some neurological twitch or something that wasn't there the last time I saw her. Of course she got ALL the shots, and told me about how sick they made her, yet she persisted.
It really is frightening the level of control the elite propagandists have over the minds of some people. She is a boomer college educated woman who divorced and never had any kids, so the demographic fits. Those types a lot of the time fancy themselves as smarter than everyone else, so you can't really tell them anything, especially a "millennial" like myself.
Crazy how some people will literally fall for every single trap that has been set for them, and never take a step back and try to figure out why they keep getting misled...
