To spot the corporate fascist regime plants in a forum, chatroom or other online exchange, look for the ones who make the most frequent use of labels like "anti-government" or "antigovernment". They will often combine one or the other with "protester" or "extremist" when branding "troublemakers" they're not quite ready to openly accuse as "terrorists". On Reddit r/Politics, a good example of such a plant would be the high-volume commenter known as "skeletor100":

I find that the uses of cognitive distortions are the biggest indicators of cointelpro infiltration. When their pretend "cause" "perspective" or whatever, is shown to be too shortsighted or narrow to apply, and truly functional perspective woven into law and duty is applied, they start trying to reject it by using distortions.

I found a good thread on the other "distraction" technique here.

COGNITIVE DISTORTIONS

  1. All or nothing thinking: Things are placed in black or white categories.

  2. Over generalization: Single event is viewed as continuous.

  3. Mental filter: Details in life (positive or negative) are amplified in importance while opposite is rejected.

  4. Minimizing: Perceiving one or opposite experiences (positive or negative) as absolute and maintaining singularity of belief to one or the other.

  5. Mind reading: One absolutely concludes that others are reacting positively or negatively without investigating reality.

  6. Fortune Telling: Based on previous 5 distortions, anticipation of negative or positive outcome of situations is established fact.

  7. Catastrophizing: Exaggerated importance of self's failures and others successes.

  8. Emotional reasoning: One feels as though emotional state IS reality of situation.

  9. "Should" statements: Self imposed rules about behavior creating guilt at self inability to adhere and anger at others in their inability to conform to self's rules.

  10. Labeling: Instead of understanding errors over generalization is applied.

  11. Personalization: Thinking that the actions or statements of others are a reaction to you.

  12. Entitlement: Believing that you deserve things you have not earned.

Good job.

Yes, about 70% of the exchange is based in cognitive distortions of one kind or another. What is strange is that some of those people are sincere, but conditioned to think that they are clearly describing something because the group they are a part of are used to and accepting the distortions as being functional.

Another way of looking at how we got to where we are.

It's easier than that (or some might say harder). Just look for the ones who explain how horrible and unjust a system is and then advocate the exact same system in different words.

Depends on how the system is defined, whether it's defined as democracy, or capitalism in it's various guises, which is almost always a cloaked refference to the status-quo, or oligarchy.

Care to point out exactly how someone is calling for the exact same system?

Have you been reading conse(R)vative posts?

Pretty much every political firebrand around these days does it. Power struggle in congress.

Thanks for being perfectly unclear and not answering either question, that was directed at another user.

Telling for a guy with a name like yours, in newbie caps.

Or is that guy, you too?

[-] -3 points by BlackSun (275) from Agua León, BC 2 years ago

[-] 3 points by shooz (26680) 2 years ago

The sentence wasn't that complex.

Why do call the corporations favorite people to do business with communist filth?

The World is becoming far to strange for these people to grasp anymore.

Globalism has eaten away at their thought process, or what once passed for one................:)

Laughing. So hard to follow the company line when they don't understand what it is.

Blind marching it is not for the faint of heart.
