RESCUE REDUX: Are the White Helmets Recycling Their ‘Barrel Bomb’ Victims?

by Shawn Helton, 21st Century Wire

Since bursting onto the global media scene, the US-UK backed ‘NGO’ known as the White Helmets have produced an unprecedented amount of western-oriented war propaganda. From the New York Times to the BBC, to Time Magazine, everywhere you look, you will see establishment western media outlets promoting the White Helmets. Upon closer examination, however, it seems that the group may be reusing its alleged victims as character subjects in its numerous staged rescue photo opportunities.

Since their inception in late 2013, the White Helmets have been financed to the tune of over $100 million from the UK and US alone, along with millions more from various other NATO, EU and GCC member states – all nations who are deeply invested in arming and backing rebel-terrorists vying for regime change in Syria. The White Helmets have even pirated the moniker ‘Syria Civil Defence’ from the REAL Syrian Civil Defence.

  1. I concede that the terrorist “white helmets”™ are a clever propaganda ploy. People emotionally switch off when they see the horror of war, but they respond to items that tug on their heartstrings.

    Of course, this trick only works on people who want to have their heart strings tugged in the first place.

    Suppose, for example, there was an equivalent to the “white helmets” in Mosul under the US bombardment, or in the Gaza Death Camp under an Israeli bombardment.

    In that case, most people would cry, “FAKE,” whether the videos were faked or not.

    Or, going the other way, suppose the Israelis made fake videos of Jewish children being dug out of rubble after they were (allegedly) attacked by (non-existent) “Hamas rockets.”

    In that case, any questioning of the fake videos would be “anti-Semitic.”

    Thus, the trick only works on people who want to be tricked, i.e. people who want to be told they are righteous and superior.

    Put more crudely, lies about the “white helmets”™ only work on assholes.
