Barbra and the Streisand Effect
(Now in HD with subtitles)
Barbra Streisand to play a
“stop the mega mosque”
benefit concert in Caulfield.
There are many levels to why we posted this video.
The Streisand Effect is the response to any kind of censorship or coverup in the internet age. A cover up in this day and age leads to even greater scrutiny. Barbra Streisand famously attempted to censor a picture of her house which of course lead to massive interest where there was originally little. The original Facebook page for Stop the Bendigo Mosque was censored out of existence temporarily after we began investigating the issue.
Streisand was politically active and was even listed as an enemy of Richard Nixon, being active on issues such as civil rights, Women’s rights and civil liberties. Streisand’s favorite issues really would really fly in the face of Islam even before considering she is Jewish and has made significant contributions to Jewish educational institutions.
Guilty was a perfect choice of song as “we have nothing to be guilty of ” as we are not professional journalists and anyone following this source knows we often run parody articles to raise points which we consider important and would like to raise awareness and discussion of. Any person claiming to be a journalist and thoughtlessly believe anything they see on the internet, and without any real research republish, effectively deserves the egg on face moment. This is also an indictment on modern Main Stream Media (MSM) where most published words are literately press releases copied and pasted with little actual fact checking or analysis. Journalism could be better and should be better. In the early 1970’s what would be called a journalist would today be called a conspiracy theorist ( a Nixon neologism).
We are glad to have underscored an issue that might have gone unnoticed. MSM employees: if you keep up the copy and paste routine you will be replaced by a Facebook page run by unpaid teenagers. Start asking some real questions show some skepticism and think about the stories you are pushing into the world. Read between the line a little guys.
Barry Gibb an Ozzy artist and how can you not like 70’s music. I think we might have invented the term ‘mega mosque’. Reading comprehension is not optional.
This is not an apology.
