There’s no question we live in an era of fake news, propaganda and so-called “alternative facts.” But the reality is, is that some organisations have spent the last few years turning this into a fine art before these terms were even fashionable.
Take CAGE for example. To put it mildly, they were rather upset that the highly reputable and long standing anti-extremism group, Hope Not Hate (HnH) (who have done excellent work exposing the networks and influence of Al-Muhajiroon,) highlighted the activism and statements of CAGE; a report that I had written based on evidence I had researched and collected.As a result they issued a blog claiming that HnH “failed to understand hate” and that the organisation “had become a platform for Home Office propaganda.”
To those of us who live in the real world, and who are familiar with the work of HnH, one could only laugh at such a ridiculous claim. Not, however for the conspiracy theory driven folk at CAGE.Read the full post at sedaa.org
