big brother   Reddit Hiring NATO Shills to Control Narrative

Big Tech’s ties to the Deep State are everywhere, and we should be concerned

Kit Knightly

I wrote a short piece a few days ago about Reddit banning users for posting the leaked NHS documents. (Spreading anti-Russian propaganda in the process).

Previously, we have also covered Reddit making politically motivated decisions – such as quarantining boards dedicated to Donald Trump and 9/11.

It turns out there’s a very simple explanation for that, Reddit’s “director of policy” was previously in the pay of the US Deep State.

In 2017 Reddit hired Jessica Ashooh as their “Director of Policy”. Her LinkedIn page shows her previous employment was “Deputy Director, Middle East Strategy Task Force” at the Atlantic Council.

The report on which Reddit based their decision to ban users as part of a “Russian campaign” was written by Ben Nimmo, who also works for the Atlantic Council (and the Integrity Initiative).

Essentially, Reddit has a high-up employee who was previously in the pay of the US Department of State (and possibly still is). 

It’s a prime example of how the US (and UK) infrastructure create an authoritarian, highly-controlled state, whilst maintaining a veneer of “freedom”. There are other examples too.

A high profile, and obvious, one is Nick Clegg being hired by Facebook

Facebook also hired Ukrainian journalist (and fascist sympathiser) Kateryna Kruk as “public policy manager”, she also has ties to the Atlantic Council. (A short while later Facebook started blocking links to OffGuardian).

In 2017 Facebook hired Indian journalist Shivnath Thukral as “director for public policy for India and South Asia. HIS previous employer was the Carnegia Endowment for International Peace (CEIP), another US NGO, funded by the State Department.

In 2011 Google hired Suzanne Michel as director of policy planning, she previously worked as Deputy Director of the Federal Trade Commission.

Then, in 2018, Google hired Karan Bhatia as their Global Head of Policy, Mr Bhatia had previously worked for the administration of George W. Bush.

It all follows the same pattern of apparent independence concealing an inter-connecting web of control, all dedicated to furthering the same agenda and all being funded by the same central source.

The Atlantic Council is not officially affiliated with the US government, neither is CEIP, they are notionally independent. Likewise, Reddit, Google, Facebook et al. are supposedly independent companies, not in any way controlled by the state.

…and yet you follow the money and it always leads to the same place.

We’re sure there are other examples, if you find any feel free to comment them below and we’ll add them to the list.

making a fake cuban sandwich...

On 28 November 2019, the European Parliament adopted a resolution titled "Cuba, the case of José Daniel Ferrer" (P9_TA-PROV (2019) 0073), condemning the Cuban "regime" for its violations of human rights in general and, in particular, for his treatment of the opposition leader of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU).

José Daniel Ferrer is a well-known dissident backed by the United States. He has already been arrested and sentenced on several occasions on charges of spying for being in the pay of the US government. He was arrested again in October 2019 for public disorder and physical violence against other citizens. He sent a letter to the US claiming to have been tortured in prison.

On the eve of the European Parliament’s vote, a Cuban television news broadcast accused international media of conducting a slander campaign against the government. In turn, the US and Spanish media snapped back accusing Cuba of propaganda.

However, MEPs should have been more skeptical about José Daniel Ferrer’s torture allegations and the credibility of his statements: at 7mn42s of the video footage showing his interrogation, he can be seen deliberately injuring himself. Ferrer repeatedly slams his head hard on a table; the prison guard withdraws from the camera’s field of vision; Ferrer then blames the guard for just having hit him.
