Author Alex Newman says the point of media deception is no longer to mislead people into believing lies but rather to demoralize them into total submission.
Newman, who wrote Deep State: The Invisible Government Behind the Scenes, explained what he meant during an interview with Greg Hunter.
"Nobody believes the press anymore," said Newman. "The point is not to make people believe these absurdities anymore. The point now is to demoralize people and to really silence us."
He pointed to the example of the FBI and DOJ being sicked on parents, who are now being demonized as domestic terrorists merely for speaking out against Critical Race Theory brainwashing and mask mandates in schools.
"AG Garland said all these parents are intimidating and harassing school boards. What could be more intimidating than sicking one of the world's most powerful law enforcement agency on parents expressing their concern? I can't think of more things that would be more intimidating than that. So, the irony is off the charts, but the goal here is to silence people into submission."
The author noted how the establishment relies on keeping people constantly black pilled and isolated so they never even attempt to resist tyranny, no matter what the odds.
