Military components sure are getting ballsy lately. In the most recent example of “let’s do some illegal shiz because who’s going to tell us not to,” Canada was caught with their hand in the cookie jar actively trying to pilfer what little freedoms are left in that bitterly cold tundra to the north.
The CJOC used the pl-pl-*cough* (excuse me) PANdemic to try out some swanky new propaganda techniques on Her Majesty’s Bastard Children, or whatever Canadians officially call themselves.
The National Post wrote that the propaganda plan was developed and put in place in April 2020 even though the Canadian Forces had already acknowledged that “information operations and targeting policies and doctrines are aimed at adversaries and have a limited application in a domestic concept.”
I know literally nothing about Canada or its laws, but I’m fairly certain this operation is illegal in every way. Remember when Snowden told us our government was breaking every law and illegally spying on us? Between that and all of our current events, Australia actively taking a dump on the word “freedom” itself and propelling her Majesty’s Prison Colony (or whatever they officially call the island of misfit toys), and this recent revelation of Canada doing their best to dredge up some Soviet nostalgia, things are feeling very dystopian lately.
