Fictional nation

"US State Department accusation of China ‘genocide’ relied on data abuse and baseless claims by far-right ideologue" (Porter/Blumenthal).  Good to make this clear, but we all know it will have no effect at all, and the PR flood will continue unabated.

Tweet (sameera khan):

"“Saddam has WMDs.”

“Qaddafi’s giving his soldiers Viagra to encourage mass rape.”

“Assad’s committing a Sunni genocide w/ chemical weapons.”

“Xi is locking up Uyghurs.”

Same energy."

Tweet (Solidarity w/Ayiti):

"Let’s just say that ALL the wild accusations about Xinjiang were 100% true (they’re not)...how would sanctions/imperial aggression HELP the situation there or Uyghurs? Cuz that’s what Ilhan Omar has promoted. Sanctions will hurt Uyghur workers first and foremost." 

"Lipstick on a Pig, British-Style: Or Why the UK’s Anti-Russian Propaganda Campaign Is Bound to Fail" (Robinson).  "Leaked papers allege massive UK govt effort to co-opt Russian-language anti-Kremlin media & influencers to ‘weaken Russian state’" (Klarenberg).  PR isn't directed to the targeted country.  It is directed to the bureaucrats and politicians of the country for whom the PR is produced.  These days, it is produced in Britain for the benefit of Assholia.

Tweet (Kawsachun News) (also - note how the right-wing scum want to get their country in hock to the IMF!):
"BREAKING: Bolivia has cancelled and returned the full sum of the US $346.7 Million IMF loan taken out by the coup regime, in rejection of IMF impositions on internal economic policy.

As of February 2021, the loan had already racked up $24.3 Million in interest and commissions."
Tweet (Dan Cohen):
"Weird how the media outlets that breathlessly promote the phony Uyghur genocide narrative say absolutely nothing about the US-funded genocide of Colombian peasants revealed today. Almost like they have an ulterior motive that has nothing to do with human rights."
Tweet (David Paterson):
"Precisely my concern as well.

First, we let it copy itself trillions of times in countries that didn’t take it seriously, breeding it into a more infectious form. Next we partially vaccinate, killing off the weak ones & leaving the field open for the still more infectious copies"
Explaining MIGA, embassy move, Golan theft recognition, Jerusalem as Khapital, etc.:  "Ghislaine Maxwell admitted Jeffrey Epstein DID have tapes of Trump and the Clintons after she was tricked by 60 Minutes producer in 2016 - 'but refused to help locate them because she wanted Hillary to win'" (Bates).

Tweet (Colin Kalmbacher) (I guess it is appropriate that The Steal led directly to the effective reelection of Trump, himself just a version of Barry):
"BREAKING: President Biden just issued new ICE guidance wholly abandoning his pledge to halt deportations. ACLU says this is "a disappointing step backward from the Biden administration’s earlier commitments to fully break from the harmful deportation policies" of Trump and Obama."
Tweet (mariska hargitaylor swift) (this is a more complex satire than you might think, and is another reference to Assholian bullshit PR):
"President Xi., My name is Bella Allen. I am 7 years old. I live in Abilene. My government is starving my family, and is not giving us heat even though it is freezing. Please send Chengdu J-20 Multirole Stealth Fighter Aircraft."
Tweet (Matt O'Brien):
"*Ted Cruz at the front door of Cancun*

TED: ok daughters here you are at Cancun

DAUGHTERS: thank you for showing us the way

TED: it's ok.

*knocks on Cancun's door*

TED: k they're here now

*Ted Cruz rides his assistant back to his airplane *"
Tweet (Kate Hyde) (explanation):
"Cruz has issued an apology statement for his trip to Cancun:"
"Facebook Takes Down All Posts Spreading Misinformation About Fictional Nation Of ‘Australia’" (The Onion).
