We are reading Fox’s Book of Martyrs, the actual edition from AD 1830.
On page 422, the conduct of Caesar Galerius, a “fanatical pagan”, bears eerie resemblance to modern events called False Flag Operations: ”…and Galerius privately ordered the imperial palace to be set on fire, that the Christians might be charged as the incendiaries, and a plausible pretence given for carrying on the persecution with the greatest severities”.
I then had the idea to research the tale of Nero fiddling while Rome burned, and found that way back in AD 64, centuries before Galerius, most of Rome burned for 6 days and 7 nights. Although it cannot be proven that Nero caused the fire, he found a convenient scapegoat in the Christians and appeased the public sentiment against them by having them fed to the lions in bloody spectacles in the remaining amphitheater.
Those pesky Christians, always starting fires to annoy the pagans.
So the strategy goes back a very long time. But what is a false flag event? Quoted from the always reliable, accurate and objective internet is the following:
“The contemporary term “false flag” describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.
The Warning Signs of a False Flag Operation:
~There is an immediate comprehensive narrative, including a convenient culprit. Law enforcement, government agencies, and the mainstream media immediately proffer a narrative that completely explains the event and encourages citizens to tie their intellectual understanding of the tragedy to the emotions they experience. In his lecture at Contact in the Desert, Richard Dolan noted that a distinguishing characteristic of a false flag operation is that the official narrative IS NOT questioned by the media. There are often legislative, ideological and sociopolitical power plays waiting in the wings, which the government can immediately implement. The most striking example of this is the Patriot Act, which was written well before 9/11 but seemed to correlate entirely with the events that had transpired.
~The official narrative has obvious domestic and geopolitical advantages for the governing body. The Bush administration used 9/11 to usher in the War on Terror, which has served as a lynchpin for countless civil liberty infringements by the national security state, including ubiquitous domestic surveillance and indefinite detention.”
Some recent such events in our lifetimes might include the Reichstag fire, blamed by the Nazis on the Communists; Pearl Harbor, blamed by the U.S. on the Japanese; the Gulf of Tonkin event, blamed by the U.S. on the Vietnamese; the 9/11 event, blamed by the U.S. on the Muslims; the Sandy Hook event, the Roseburg event, the San Bernardino event, all blamed by the U.S. on “shooters”; the Boston Marathon bombing, blamed by the U.S. on Muslim brothers; and certainly many more such “event” which are used to start wars or attain some political objective.
Don’t be a “conspiracy theorist” and be vilified by the media. Become a truth seeker and look at all such life-changing events with the objective of looking beyond the “narrative”. It is all around us, folks.
