Turning The Cabbages Into Sauerkraut - First Step: Remove the Core

This thread is where we'll break down speeches, articles, and statements used to spin events and information into political justification and motivation. You can predict how certain events will be played out by the media. You can propose an event or tragedy, or piece of information, and write an article or speech in the way you think an organization might write in order to spin it for profit. You can use existing propaganda and break down the motive and persuasive mechanics used.

Not to mention, some of us might have ideas or perspectives on the style of politicization that others didn't think of. But I think we can have an affect on people we talk to if we have a collective analysis to present to people who bring up some of these quotes, articles, and speeches.

In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha
