This 1967 Memo Is Still Used to Discredit Theorists Today – 24 Apr 2017 |

The exact same techniques used to deter people from discussing conspiracies in the 1960's are still being employed today.

The phrase “ theorist” gets thrown around these days like pies get thrown around in an episode of “The Three Stooges”. It has become so overused in fact that it's beyond a trope and almost doesn't mean anything anymore (and has been superseded by the “” psyop as a means of discrediting truly independent media that criticizes the establishment or asks too many questions about controversial events).

Once upon a time, being a theorist wasn't automatically akin to being a crazy tin foil hatter, but that all changed swiftly after President John F. Kennedy's assassination, when polls showed nearly half the country was not buying the 's findings or its report solidifying the government's official version of events; a Gallup poll reported in January 1967 that a whopping 46% of the country — nearly half — did not believe Oswald acted alone. (Bear in mind this was a full decade before the House Select Committee on Assassinations investigated 's murder and concluded that, “Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy,” and that “President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a .”)

At the same time, Mark Lane had just released his book “Rush to Judgment: A Critique of the Warren Commission's Inquiry into the Murders of President John F. Kennedy, Officer J. D. Tippit and Lee Harvey Oswald” and a three-judge panel had just ruled that District Attorney Jim Garrison had enough evidence to take Clay Shaw to trial on charges of conspiring to assassinate .

The Central Intelligence Agency released the following memo in April 1967 categorized as “PSYCH” which essentially weaponized the use of the label “ theorist” and laid out a number of dirty tactics using “elite friendly contacts” including politicians and media figures to discredit and shut down any claims and ultimately demonize anyone who attempted to challenge the government's official version of events.

This is how it worked then and it's clearly still how it works today.

If you read this document, you'll see elements of it still in play today every time a major event takes place that the system does not want anyone asking questions about.
