What Is Wikileaks’ Agenda In Our Political Theater?
How are they supporting the dystopian, hateful blueprint that has led to our current administration and policies?
I am the truth and transparency type and initially found Wikileaks very interesting. For one thing, I am a cold war era veteran who supports whistleblowing and was very glad that Chelsea Manning’s sentence was commuted. But over time I have developed a more holistic sense of Wikileaks’ role in the current state of our government. I think there are forces in our world who are trying to go meta — organizing themselves according to business interests, maligning and destroying government structures, developing an intolerant and dishonest media/propaganda machine, marginalizing and attacking vulnerable populations, and sucking the world dry of any profit they can find.
They also use lots of classic propaganda techniques, like blaming one’s enemies for things they are guilty of (globalism, pedophilia, ties to criminal activity, ‘fake news’. ‘alternative facts’, etc.). Trump’s presidency has been great for everyone’s businesses and the companies they hold stock in, international and otherwise. I think that is what this is all about. Just #FollowTheMoney and #FollowTheHate — it’s the anarcho-capitalist, often libertarian, authoritarian agenda that wants to eliminate government oversight, regulations, and power over uber-capitalist forces that seek to exploit and/or destroy our planet and most of humanity, as well.
It’s the timing of the links relative to what was going on in the U.S. government that had me scratching my head. It seemed very clear to me that the leaks were supporting Trump and his campaign. I wonder if some of the leaks are fabricated and planted among leaks that might be true. I also wonder about Edward Snowden’s role, especially since he sought and was granted asylum by Russia. Certainly these links have had an element of editing and spin, and there seem to be certain people and interests targeted in systematic ways. You can see all of these linkages in this timeline.
There is a narrative being spun by the alt right, in short, and Wikileaks seems to be supporting it, as well. Discredit certain political opponents (Democrats, Clinton, etc.), promote the interests of allies (like Russia), spin the narrative to undermine U.S. government intelligence agencies who are investigating the Trump-Russia matter, among other things. A HUGE part of the agenda is convincing followers that they are the only ones who know and are willing to speak the truth.
Timeline: Everything We Know About Russia and President Trump
Democracy & Government Investigative reporters have begun to flesh out the Trump/Russia timeline. To keep everything in…
This has their supporters criticizing and attempting to discredit all other media outlets in support of known hate media outlets like Infowars, Breitbart, Prison Planet, Fox News, and countless radio shows. These media outlets are also known to be racist and misogynistic, and it’s clear to be that they had Obama and Clinton in their sights the whole time. In short, this is the white supremacist, alt right agenda.
If you dig into their archives, their rhetorical stance of hatred (towards certain groups and government in general) and ridicule becomes very clear.
Within hours, right wing media outlets like Infowars were already floating the possibility that the CIA had staged the Russian hacks just to undermine President Trump. Alt-right troll Milo Yiannopoulis wrote a handy guide for readers on his website, emphasizing the CIA’s ability to imitate the Russians as bullet point №1. On Twitter, conservative radio host Bill Mitchell took a more folksy approach:

Consider the source of the Wikileaks again: Julian Assange, someone who has repeatedly been accused of being a Russian agent based on the fact that his leaks (always accurate) consistently support Russian objectives. He never leaks Russian secrets, just ours and those of our allies, generally to serve Russian aims. A prime example was in the Olympic doping scandals. After the Russians saw their athletes humiliated and their medals stripped, a big batch of Wikileaks were released from assorted nations, including the U.S., to demonstrate that ‘everybody does it’ and Russia was no different. There were similar machinations around FIFA and its soccer sponsorships.

The dumps also seemed to be an attempt to distract from news coverage (Trump’s lewd comments about women) that challenged the Trump campaign. In the meantime, misogynistic and sexist hatred continues to proliferate.

I’d encourage you to do your own research to see what you think! Wikileaks has been a powerful force in affecting public opinion these last few years. I think it is natural to question what their true motives are, like whether this is all part of the Roger Stone blueprint and a coordinated effort between Roger Stone, Breitbart, InfoWars, Wikileaks, and other media and propaganda allies. Please note that Steve Bannon, who was one of Trump’s first advisory picks, is a known propagandist/hate media type who previously led Breitbart. Stephen Miller was also one of the early advisory picks — he also has significant ties to white supremacist groups.
But what is clear to me is that they are convincing their followers that a world without government is both possible and desirable. I find this very distasteful given known corporate proclivities to exploit people and planet for maximum profit. This is why they want to eliminate regulations and oversight in government — it leaves no one (they think) to hold them accountable.
