EXCLUSIVE BROADCAST: Greg Felton: “Parkland shooting exposes the terrible power and appeal of sacred violence”


Canadian journalist Greg Felton, author of The Host and the Parasite, writes:

“A media narrative of a mass shooting generates quasi-religious loyalty for three main reasons. First, it gives people what they want: a patsy and moral reassurance. Once the patsy is identified and either killed or captured, the narrative then acts as a form of catharsis by providing closure, commiseration and reassurance. People accept it because they want to.

“Second, a media narrative is championed by political interests that ‘decouple’ the narrative from its putative cause so that it takes on a life of its own. The narrative then becomes its own justification. The shooting, once a horrific crime, becomes a de facto positive event, an act of sacred violence that justifies the existence of the political crusade.

“Third, loyalty is magnified when converts, attracted by the political crusade, self-identify with its black-and-white morality and help stifle dissent. Typical is the resort to tired, risible epithets like ‘conspiracy theory,’ ‘Putin apologist,’ ‘Russian bot,’ and the caricaturing of critics as right-wing kooks and disinformants.”

Is Greg Felton right? In this interview we agree on some things and argue heatedly about others. Listen and make up your own mind!

    **Actually, they were about slave-patrols; so the elite could muster them up, when needed… Property owners were very afraid of the people; it is clearly documented in the Economic Int. of the U. S. ….
    Kevin, you would have been a successful politician…
