1A flag flown to disguise the true identity or affiliation of a ship.
‘Captain Young hauled down his false flag, hoisted the American ensign, and opened fire’
figurative ‘he hides behind the false flag of patriotism’
2 usually as modifier A political or military act orchestrated in such a way that it appears to have been carried out by a party that is not in fact responsible.
So the rise of the far right across not only America but many other countries seems to have taken everyone by surprise. The true reason for this will be touched upon today but fully explained when the series of articles (“Who Knew”) are complete.
The far right could not be so wrong and so far away from the truth, their recent increase in power and popularity serves them in the short term but when the truth is out they will be considered as gullible narcissistic fools at best or power hungry, unpatriotic traitors at worse. Their “cause” has been hijacked and they have been empowered by one that has no interest in them or indeed their country, you may ask who may this be? The answer none other than their old foe “The Communist”. It would seem the architect has learned not only from the second world war but also from the cold war. Whilst the fascists of the world exalt a time that never was the architect has exploited this to his advantage. Like a cancer eating democracy from the inside Fascism has been allowed to grow unchecked for decades (the political class never wanting to go for a check up, instead dismissing the growth and the pain caused to others as something else less serious).
Since the condition has now been flagged up it would seem that everyone’s either succumbing to the illness or trying to eradicate the illness, all this whilst not being aware, not so much of the cause of the illness (hatred, bigotry and the lust for power) but who manufactured the apparatus that delivered the carcinogenic materials.
The architect has taken the concept of the False Flag and tied it (and his enemies) into knots. He has unstitched the very fabric of this deceptive act and created attire that the Fascists of the world gladly wear not realising (or maybe they do) the origin of their latest fashion faux pas.
A false flag is a covert operation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.
The term “false flag” originally referred to pirate ships that flew flags of countries as a disguise to prevent their victims from fleeing or preparing for battle. Sometimes the flag would remain and the blame for the attack be laid incorrectly on another country. The term today extends beyond naval encounters to include countries that organize attacks on themselves and make the attacks appear to be by enemy nations or terrorists, thus giving the nation that was supposedly attacked a pretext<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casus_belli> for domestic repression and foreign military aggression. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_flag#cite_note-austinconspiracy-1
Operations carried out during peacetime by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_agency, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.
