You don’t hear too many of those stories any more, because most were exposed as either outrageous exaggerations or outright lies promulgated by Russian fake news websites. But for a while, they were all the rage here in the Zone.
Its deja fucking vu all over again.

By provoking their followers into causing trouble, extremists are able to divide German society, to provoke anti-Muslim sentiment and persecution of peaceful Muslims, to get extreme right-wing, neo-fascist and nativist elements in German society in an uproar. This reaction can only cause more friction and conflict, which allows the terrorists to say “See, those people hate you, you have to rise up against them in order to protect yourselves, join us.” The terrorists want conflict between the host and immigrant communities because it plays right into their hands. It also forces moderate Muslims to pick sides, and go with the extremists.
You see a similar dynamic at work here in our “Black Lives Matter” movement. Cops kill or otherwise persecute blacks, blacks (especially in high-crime communities), come to see cops as oppressors and occupiers, provocateurs on both sides cause trouble and try to provoke conflict (black rioters/looters, extremists and white supremacists), the cops feel like they are under attack, abandoned and betrayed by their own civil leadership and under threat by criminals and “the press”, so they tend to overreact, (or worse, do nothing out of fear). The process feeds on itself, a self-fulfilling prophecy. Innocent blacks are persecuted just because they’re blacks, good cops are ambushed and attacked just because they’re cops.
This is not the first time in history this has happened.
And it won’t be the last. We’re all still Goebbel’s victims, long after his death.
