CopBlock.org is Propaganda: Do NOT Read This

“CopBlock is just propaganda”toomuchtothink

I hear this over and over from CopSuckers and LEOs (active and retired) alike who are unwilling to open their minds to the idea that something might actually be wrong with how the service of policing is provided today. My response to these claims has been the same, and simply put, that, “Yes, CopBlock is propaganda,” but before I explain why, let’s discuss the definition of propaganda:

prop·a·gan·da
ˌpräpəˈɡandə/
  1. 1derogatory information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.
    “he was charged with distributing enemy propaganda”

The definition of this word is interesting to me to say the least. Derogatory means, “showing a critical or disrespectful attitude,” so it follows that derogatory information is information presented with a critical or disrespectful attitude. Obviously, I’m guilty of this with respect to my work here at CopBlock.org. However, the synonyms for propaganda as set forth in the dictionary are “information, promotion, advertising, spin, and disinformation.” How, or why, does propaganda have a negative connotation to it? Is propaganda bad?

It seems to me that propaganda is simply information, with the distinction being that if you don’t like the information you’re being provided, or you don’t believe it, then you’re more likely to call it propaganda. This is why I call government information “government propaganda” and I’m sure it’s why CopSuckers/LEOs call the content here propaganda. To be honest, I’m fine with it, because it is. All information is simply propaganda. We’ve established this: the problem is when people try to claim their content as neutral or the “no spin” zone, when the reality is that no one is neutral and the “no spin zone” is really spinning like a motherfucker.

This is the key difference between the information provided from the mainstream and the information provided through the decentralized concept of CopBlock. I can only speak for myself, but I think what I’m about to say relates to other contributors (as well as most alternative media sites) here. I don’t claim to be neutral or without bias; in fact, I’m extremely biased. My experiences, my research, and the years of covering police-related topics has brought me to the conclusion that, “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.” I believe most police officers do more harm than good, and I’ve continually backed this idea up through my work as an activist. I think most of the contributors here would agree with this, and aren’t hiding the fact that they believe the police are creating more harm than good.

Of course, I can only speak for myself, but yes, I create propaganda. Yet, I’m not misleading anyone. You came to CopBlock.org, not LovethePoliceState.com, and though I’m glad you decided to visit this site, I hope it’s not your only stop. Propaganda is information, and the information I provide as a contributor to this site is that of cops killing unarmed people, abusing rights, being CopBlocked, all along with my personal views on issues with police today. Should I be the only source you visit? Hell no, visit PoliceOne.com, CopBlock-Exposed.org and any other outlet diametrically opposed to my beliefs.  See for yourself if the information, propaganda, or spin they provide of officers who violate people’s rights is acceptable in your mind; read their side of the Brown, Garner, or Scott killings. Then, decide for yourself who is providing you information and who is spreading propaganda.

What I will give you, via my work here at CopBlock.org, is my biased, spinning, yet factually supported belief that government-provided services are absolutely harmful to everyone. If you want to call it propaganda, that’s cool – just make sure you label that textbook your children bring home from their government prison with the same title. Knowledge is power and we’re not going to give you either; you have to find them yourself.

    So a multiple felon is telling people the system is broken. Your multiple outbursts and arrests destroy any credibility you think you have with the public. That also goes for all the other copblockers. Copblock is a propaganda machine. It is also a capitalist machine. All the adds to peddle your toys, trinkets, and trash only go to prove that. You claim you have a job but what do you write for a job when you file income taxes? When you make statements that all these people are behind you, it’s just the same copblockers every time. Sorry but you and others who post articles on this site spin tales and post fictional articles to keep the drama going.

  • Common Sense

    Lets be very clear Adam, you will post anything, without fact checking, to promote your agenda. I’ve proven this before.

    So do fool yourself into believing you are an investigative journalist with journalistic ethics. You are an activist, and activism is based on emotion, not fact. Its your site now it seems (perhaps Pete has decided to move on) and you can post or not post what you wish. But don’t pretend to be something you are not.

  • I disagree with the premise of the definition, that it is always “derogatory information, especially of a biased or misleading nature,”. That particular definition serves a certain group, but it is not accurate.

    The information can be the exact opposite, as in “truth” meant to help:

    information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.

  • Pw4x3r

    Trying to think of a way to say this so that you get it………. Wrong. Sounds like you’re a little crying child right now. That FB page is fucking hilarious too. It’s like an advertised place for all the idiots to collect at.

  • If the promotion of every idea, regardless of truth, is called propaganda, the word becomes meaningless. The modern definitions of the word has diluted the meaning to mean the spreading of any idea to help or hurt a cause regardless of truth. The origin of the word was for spreading faith based information, not truthful information. Truth is not propaganda, I will not call it such. When we spread the truth but allow others to call it propaganda or call it propaganda ourselves, the only thing that does is help the people who are trying to suppress the truth. People begin disregarding the truth because they think it might be false or exaggerated.

  • nick

    arent you cute

  • Bob

    JC you are a tool

  • keepitreal

    You have some chutzpa to talk about credibility, slaps. You know, with your I’m a PO, I live in San Diego, I’m filing reports, etc. You’re a lying little bitch. But you’re also mildly amusing, kind of like a retarded chimpanzee would be, I’d imagine. I have to imagine, because you’re the closest thing to a retarded chimpanzee I’ve ever run across.

  • keepitreal

    I believe that FB page is run by our very own ChicagoRules douche. One of the posts matched one of his here word for word.

  • keepitreal

    Or Chicago Style, or whatever his fucked up screen name is.

  • JC

    You said, “It’s like an advertised place for all the idiots to collect at”. Sounds just like copblock.

  • t

    Hmmm.
    Hear that all the time do you?
    Huh.
    I never seen anyone write anything like that.

    Well….maybe it me. I generally just stick with the truth.

  • ymygody

    Tic Toc.

  • Brian Pan

    Looks like the cops are unsuccessfully trying to fight back here.

  • Josie Eckwright

    Personal attacks are what people do when they have nothing of substance to say. I think cops are the ones keeping the drama going! Quit pointing the finger in attempt to divert attention. we have 6 percent of the worlds pop and have 25 percent of the world prison pop. something doesn’t add up. Pointing out someone is a felon doesn’t have the same OMG…. effect on people when they handing out felonies like candy. Used to work but now we just have war time vehicles driving down the streets to intimidate people. we’re like shit felon I can live with that at least they aren’t going to murder me or take my freedom just cuz they want to. The videos speak for themselves which is why they are working hard to make it illegal to record and why cops take phones and smash them or erase content, or just plain have a shit fit when people record….so yeah videos are videos not propaganda but nice try.

  • Klokinator

    Let’s sum up the OP’s post.

    “You’ve never been to prison! You have no right to talk, little boy! Nothing you say is credible!!!”

    “You’re a multiple felon?! Goddamn criminal piece of shit! Nothing you say is credible!!!”

    Oh look, I can make any argument invalid too.

    “You’re not a cop, you can’t discuss the danger we live in.”
    “You’re a cop, everything is tainted by the blue line bias!”

    It’s easy to discredit somebody due to some personal trait. That’s called Ad Hominem. It’s HARD to debate their factual points. This is why I have more respect for the ‘multiple felon’ who lived through a broken system than a whiny commenter who uses ad hominem attacks to try and discredit him. Period.

  • RAD

    It’s agenda-driven activist journalism. They don’t necessarily play by the old school journalist code of being a neutral fact gatherer but hardly anyone does after Michael Moore blew that paradigm apart with Bowling for Columbine and it’s been a new era for journalism ever since. The talking heads on Fox News are about as neutral as Cop Block. So what; it’s the new normal – it is what it is.

  • RAD

    The plot thickens.

  • RAD

    Awesome comment, props for bringing the argumentation ethics.

  • RAD

    Some nice points made.

  • WD!

    That’s not very nice, chimpanzees are intelligent and amazing creatures, how dare you throw them in a group with a scumbag like jc!

    Sorry but you are grasping at straws. It’s very simple. Don’t intentionally break the law, you won’t have to worry about the police.

    You have a choice as to what path you take in life. You can’t escape the consequences of that choice.

    This site is made up and run by felons and people with a mile long criminal record. This site is propaganda. Plain and simple.

  • JC

    This is what your propaganda is doing. This person is the typical copblocker.

    Really? Try explaining that to these people:

  • Some Dude

    “Don’t intentionally break the law, you won’t have to worry about the police.”
    So I take it you hate people who intentionally break the law?

    Then you must really hate our country’s forefathers. They refused to pay their fair share in taxes, broke into merchant ships in harbor just to intentionally destroy their goods that the poor merchants were selling just so they could make a living. They publicly executed LEO’s of the British Empire who were “just doing their job”. They were traitors to their nation and refused to follow the law of the land set forth by parliament.
    Today we call those people lazy thugs and terrorists. So why is it you guys always have such twisted double standards when it comes to this sort of thing?

  • kelly

    I wonder if u’ll keep that mindset when your cop friends try busting your neighbor for a few grams of pot and end up braking into ur home or backyard and shoot your dog or throw a gas can in your childs crib pr spmeone u love or urself are mistaken for a criminal and stripped of your righrs Immidiatly and hurt or worse. As rediculious as that sounds innocent people are struggling thru bullshit like that every day while the cops accountable dont even get a slap on the wrists. It may not concern you now because im guessing you are a white male that “doesnt brake the law”, but when your rights are violated u’ll b crying and there will be no one to fight for you because it doesn’t concern them. The majority of people, just like you are sheep tp the police state

  • Bob

    Well said

  • Linkoln

    Sorry, but you’re promoting a drone mindset. Laws don’t equate morality. If what I’m doing does not interfere with the well being of others, you have no right to tell me what I do with my own time, money and body. I’m glad you’re okay with the insane amount of fascism this site has reported on, and just because you’re a lifeless drone like the cops who prowl our streets for revenue doesn’t mean the rest of us have to be or even should be.

  • JC

    My neighbors don’t do drugs. Since I am a parole officer, I don’t do drugs. Spare me your cocktail party psychology. The fix is easy. Don’t due drugs. They are illegal

  • shaun h

    First mistake is trying to reason with a cop, those souls are forever lost.

  • shaun h

    Journalism has ALWAYS been about advocacy. Why do you think so many papers have the word democrat in their title, for example?

  • shaun h

    Don’t break the law and you won’t have to worry about citizens filming and scrutinizing your every move

  • Ike Wheeler

    Many of these comments are completely correct but propaganda is just another word made up to enforce the idea if it isn’t politicly correct it’s tag’d as propaganda hensforth bullshit. The truth about crimes agens’t innocent civilians by police isn’t propaganda it’s mostly based on factual information. Hensforth not propaganda. But truthful journalism . Hens being the truth of course is bull shit otherwise it would be carried on every major network on tv. It’s a messed up world I find myself amazed cops killing people by the hundreds and thousands over the years . As a real issue fall’s behind who’s going to be the next american odol. Or how our taxes are needed to hire more police . When in truth thay are the problem.
