Here’s a lawyer who understands the connection between today’s organized stalking (community-based harassment) behavior and yesteryear’s COINTELPRO program.
I like to refer to it as COINTEL-Hell.
These are the reasons Mr. Manchanda offers for people to become targeted:
Targets can be chosen for many reasons: (1) political views; (2) whistle blowing; (3) political dissidence; (4) asserting rights at work; (5) making the wrong enemy; (6) too outspoken; (7) investigating something that the state does not want investigated; (8) signing a petition; (9) writing a letter; (10) being “suspicious” by a civilian spy/snitch; or (11) being a religious/ethnic/racial minority.
Here are some reasons to explain why people participate in the Stasi-like behavior:
(1) gives them a sense of power; (2) is a way to make friends; (3) is something social and fun; (4) breaks down race/gender/age/social barriers; (5) is forced or blackmailed upon them by the State or police to take part; (6) is told to them that they are part of “homeland or national security” to help keep an eye on “dangerous” or “emotionally disturbed” individuals where they are “heroic spies for the state;” (7) is used on local thugs or informants who are already being used for other activities where their energies are diverted into these COPS gangstalking community spy programs; (8) is either a choice of spying for the State or police, or else go to jail; (9) involves outright lies and slander about the target to get them to go along with ruining the targets life; (10) includes average citizens recruited by the state the same way citizens were recruited in the former East Germany and other countries.
I have outright called participants “Stasis.” Then, I wonder if they even know what the word means. Do they have any idea they are participating in a program that is intended to neutralize and eliminate us? I think about this a lot. It also makes me think, in despair:
Humans, Humans everywhere….and not a drop of humanity to be found.
I ask: is there ANYONE with a brain? to think about what they are participating in.
A heart? to feel some empathy.
A gut that will tell them this program is wrong…is, in fact, evil???
I believe if we keep relating this experience to the E German Stasi program, something might click…one day.
