The Paper of Record for McHenry County–the Northwest Herald–ran a story about anonymous letters delivered to homes of people with Democratic Party candidate signs in their front yards.
This is the paper that did not run timely stories last spring from anonymous allies of Jack Franks about the barrage of mailed post cards lying about County Clerk Joe Tirio and four Republican County Board candidates.
Did the NWH find the Democratic Party Chair to comment?
They found the guy who won’t even march with other Democrats in parades–McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks.
The article says they tried to reach Diane Evertsen, the GOP Chairman, but could not.
Two active Republicans left the following comments under the story:
Anyone that believes these were real letters and not just a ploy to gather sympathy for ‘Socialists’ is brain dead. The Republican County Chairman can’t be found, but Jack Franks ( see: https://www.lyingjackfranks.
Hope someone checks on how many hits the website gets by way of this referral.
Richard blasted them as well:
Seems more like an orchestrated effort from the Democrats than a legitimate story. No one with a clue would send letters as stupid as this to people with the opponent’s signs on their lawns. They would know, intuitively that the opposition would seek to make fodder of this. The story only makes any sense at all if it starts as a smear from the Left. If, somehow, it came from someone on the ‘right,’ they’re not someone who shares the attitudes, campaign strategies or intellect of the overwhelming majority of conservatives and Republicans.
So, was the story the result of a False Flag operation?
Read part of the definition of False Flag offered by Wikipedia:
A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.
But, maybe Black Propaganda better describes what this might be:
“The major characteristic of black propaganda is that the people are not aware that someone is influencing them, and do not feel that they are being pushed in a certain direction.
Black propaganda relies on the willingness of the receiver to accept the credibility of the source. If the creators or senders of the black propaganda message do not adequately understand their intended audience, the message may be misunderstood, seem suspicious, or fail altogether.”
