Western mass media are saturating the airwaves with the narrative that Wednesday’s drone bombing of the Kremlin was a “false flag”, by which they mean that Russia did it to themselves to advance some nefarious agenda.
False flags are a thing and they do happen [Zelensky and the CIA have done quite a few], but to act like that’s the most likely explanation for the Kremlin bombing when Russia is currently at war with a neighbor who has the means, motive and opportunity is something only a propagandist would do. Especially when oligarchs from that neighboring nation are openly incentivizing people to attack Russia with drones for cash rewards, when Zelensky’s coinciding absence from the country prevented immediate retaliation, and when Atlantic propagandists are writing enthusiastically about the sophisticated drone facilities they visited in Ukraine.
In 2017 I was temporarily suspended by Facebook for posting an article about known false flags, because until 2022 mainstream narrative managers considered false flags to be a crazy crackpot concept. That changed the moment the idea became useful to western propagandists.
When this changed in early 2022 it initially took journalists by surprise, because until then they’d only ever heard “false flag” used to dismiss people like Alex Jones:
I say we arm Russia against Russia. If it’s bombing its own government buildings, its own pipelines, its own captured power plants, then it’s the best proxy force against Russia we’ve got. Send the Russians tanks and F-16s immediately.
