ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, is famous for having declared: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” The liberal Democratic machine must surely have known that, because for the past two-and-a-half years they’ve been testing it. Sadly, however, Goebbels failed to say what happens when ‘the big lie’ is disproven, as in the case of the Democrats’ mantra, ‘Trump colluded with the Russians,’ which was recently repudiated by the Mueller report. (Maybe that never happened in Nazi Germany, for they had “absolute” control of the justice system and even better control of the media.)

It would now appear, however, that when a big lie is proven untrue, as with the Mueller report, it splinters, going off in all directions as smaller, medium-sized and even pseudo-big lies, which are then fed to the general public.

Whether or not these types of lies can be made to become the “truth” remains to be seen. But I suspect we’ll be forced to find out over the next few years. For as historians know well, Marxists, socialists, progressives, communists and globalists never give up. After all, the end does justify the means, doesn’t it?
