The Seduction of Satire.

Hilary Butler - Sunday, January 22, 2017

  

The Onion, which calls itself “America’s finest news source”, filled space with another vitriol variant on Mike Pence today. “What Hilary? You don’t like satire? It’s just words Hilary. Humour makes the world go around didn’t you know?”

What I know is that death and life are in the power of words, and those who love words, will eat the fruit of them,  and by their fruits you will know them

Satire isn’t humour. Satire is writing lying words as if they are coming from another person’s mouth. Satire is written from a veneer of hatred, and its purpose is to shame and humiliate. It’s also a subtle variant of public fear mongering. Hidden beneath the cloak of people’s laughter, satire is designed to plant into people’s minds perceptions about people which are a stereotype, assumed, or even fabricated.

Oh, we’ve all heard those words,Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never hurt you.Never was a bigger lie written than that one. Words are seeds, which are planted and grow.

Words have started wars which have killed millions of innocent front-line soldiers on both sides, because someone took offense to words. Historians who know the effects of words, will know which words were spoken, that so riled Hitler, that he decided to take matters into his own hands, giving us the holocaust and World War II.

But did the people who spoke those words which resulted in shame and humiliation for a country after World War I, ever dream that those words would become the fuel which would set fire to Europe as the Second World War, and also result in ethnic cleansing?

But back to Trump.

Is satire funny to those who are at the butt end of it? Those who are crying in their beards about Donald Trump being president should perhaps consider the impact that satire can have, particularly when it’s done publicly, deliberately, and cynically.

America is now eating the FRUIT of the words spoken by President Obama who chose to use satire to relentlessly humiliate and shame Donald Trump in front of the nation.



America can also thank the previous and ONGOING serial lying out of the mouths of the main stream media, for the election of Trump, by people who saw the previous satire and the lies for what they were.

Listening must be followed by analysis, then a choice.  Believe it, or not. Then comes the action.

I see the outcome of voices, choices and consequences whenever parents come to me with a vaccine-damaged child. The story is always the same, every time.  Parents listened to lies, believed the lies, and never bothered to read the vaccine data sheets in the doctors’ hands, which usually detail exactly the problems their children now have. They made a choice based on trusting a doctor, believing the lies, which resulted in the damage to their child.

The system of course, calls the vaccine damage “coincidence”, then labels the parents “anti-vaccine” idiots, and throws them off the cliff.

The parents then become angry at the system for lying in the first place, lying again, and then leaving the parents to pick up the mess that resulted from them believing the system’s lies in the first place.

After the lies, damned lies and statistics used by the pro-vaccine zealots, SATIRE mixed with as much dripping sarcasm as possible, (which amounts to character and intelligence assassination) is considered by the pro-vaccine to be the best way to sow all the propaganda you can imagine into the minds of parents who are thinking about vaccines. “Oh, but anti-anti-vaccine satire is only humour, Hilary!”

Dream on.

This last year has been a revelation to me. We can’t complain we live in boring times. It’s like the curtains have been pulled back to reveal the many faces of deception and mind manipulation everywhere.

Hopefully, those with eyes to see, will take note, and understand, because the satire and lies on all fronts, are the ways of the world, and part of a universal, well-orchestrated escalating campaign.

Those who know the truth, also know that evil communications – or as some would say – bad company - corrupts good manners.  The words you listen to and believe, have a defined outcome.  The words you speak can result in consequences....  ...  Continue Reading


Just Trust Us....

Hilary Butler - Thursday, July 18, 2013

Part One: Words from Memory Lane.  

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric? 

Part Three: The name of the game. 

Part Four: The get out of jail card. 

Part Five: Blaming Muggins.

Part Six: Reforming Nocebo.

The solution for the medical system? It’s pretty simple really. If you aren't allowed to "deceive" people, to research what happens when they are deceived, only one possible action remains.  Only ever tell patients the GOOD THINGS a drug or vaccine can do. Say, "Just trust us.  WE know what we are doing...."

The name of the game.

Hilary Butler - Sunday, July 14, 2013

Part One: Words from Memory Lane. 

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric?
 

The Scientist’s article “Worried Sick” confirms that nocebo and placebo are a primary drivers in medical practice, by their statement: “In places like primary care, people are swimming in placebo and nocebo effects.”

Placebo is defined as: “a usually pharmacologically inert preparation prescribed more for the mental relief of the patient than for its actual effect on a disorder”

A placebo could also be defined as “There there Dearie, you’ll be fine. This is simple to fix….” Continue Reading


Flu vaccine causes the flu.

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, June 25, 2013


But not the "actual flu" mind you. The one that everyone thinks is the flu when it's not the flu. Now, let's be precise. The Herald yesterday had this bizarre piece  (pdf) which treads new ground.

For once, we are told a bit of truth. Very selective truth. Continue Reading


Never bite the hand that feeds you...

Hilary Butler - Friday, May 31, 2013

On Monday, Jamie Morton, who calls himself a science reporter, penned an article called, “Your winter flu will count this year”.  Jamie Morton’s twitter account, described himself as a, “Scribbler at NZ Herald. Enjoys irrelevant music and coffeehousing. Dislikes Nazis and any concept of a NZ celebrity culture. Views are his own.” Quite what qualifies him as being “scientific” is inscrutable, but at least he doesn’t describe himself, as an “investigative science journalist”, for if he had, I would have choked.  Continue Reading


Part Two: What the Herald on Sunday should have shown readers

World's first Orwell "Truth Department" award goes to....

Hilary Butler - Saturday, May 21, 2011

.... the editor of the Waikato Times.  Seriously, there isn't one, but if there was one, I'd award it to him for unethically butchered a letter of mine, to make it read the opposite of what I meant.  Perhaps this is the new trend to dissuade thinkers from voicing opinions!  I mean, if you KNOW something you write will be completely butchered and made unrecognizably, you'll definitely hesitate to write another one in the future, wouldn't you?  So here's what happened.  In the Waikato Times, on 11 May, was this letter: Continue Reading


Secret documents show benzos cause brain damage.

Hilary Butler - Monday, November 08, 2010

Today was yet another embarrassing day for the "love a quick fix" medical system.  The Sunday Independant in the UK revealed that secret documents marked "closed until 2014", showed that in 1982, the Medical Research Council was warned that benzodiazepines, which were marketted as "completely harmless", could cause brain shrinkage, and brain damage.  The Department of Health, very conveniently, has "no record" of that meeting.  A Professor Malcolm Lader, asked to set up a unit to research benzos, but was refused permission or funding to do so.  He didn't push the issue, because  even back then, he knew what happens to people who come up against "competing interests", and he assumed that prescription of benzos would "peter out".   Continue Reading


Starship Doctors slammed

Hilary Butler - Sunday, October 31, 2010

In the Sunday Star Times today, Judge David McNaughton delivered a swift message to Starship doctors about predictive and substandard medical care, and the presumption of guilt without good cause.  The Judge found Famaile Lino not guilty of abusing his six month old child after Starship jumped to conclusions, and robustly defended their own preconceived mindsets.  The Lino's lawyer said, " "It's a very important case. It shows how suddenly a person can be at home with their feet up looking after their children, and a nightmare commences."  Here's the rub though.  Court cases like this USUALLY only happen to people like the Linos or the Kahuis.  Starship doesn't usually go after people who know what's going on; the limitations of the medical profession; and how to defend themselves.    Starship are of course, scuttling into a "risk management" position, by defending the indefensible: Continue Reading


Twenty-five years plus is quite a long time....

Hilary Butler - Saturday, October 02, 2010

(By Peter Butler) Especially when it's been spent dealing with issues and systems governed by engrained mindsets, and heavily influenced by huge vested interests more interested in profits, than making available all of the facts ...without restriction; or providing customized care to unique individuals, rather than trying to fit everyone into their "one-size-fits-all" moulds.
