Trump Administration comes out with ‘alternative facts’ propaganda

Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.

Kellyanne Conway tells America that the administration isn’t lying about the size of the crowd at Trump’s inauguration; they’re just sharing “alternative facts.”

The day before, White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed that Trump had the largest inauguration audience in history. That was a lie.

What they’re trying to do is establish power: they are lying to flaunt power. They are saying to us: “We know that you know that this is a lie, and we don’t care, because there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.”

Sarah Kendzior speaking on MSNBC

Campaigns against the press and the dressing up of lies with language like “alternative facts” are common techniques of fascism.

Fascist politics exchanges reality for the pronouncements of a single individual, or perhaps a political party. Regular and repeated obvious lying is part of the process by which fascist politics destroys the information space. A fascist leader can replace truth with power, ultimately lying without consequence.

Images and videos may be missing from posts. This is a temporary problem that should resolve itself in the next couple days. If it doesn’t, we will go through and re-add media to posts beginning next week.
