The fact that “The Most Trusted Name in News” has included “space aliens, time travelers or beings from another dimension” right next to hijackers and terrorists is highly significant. This grouping of potential culprits encourages fallacy association on the part of the audience. In other words, if humanity were exposed to ETs in the future (whether in a real or staged scenario) another layer to the societal narrative has been added: ET visitors should be grouped alongside dangerous hijackers and terrorists and viewed accordingly. Headlines quickly spread around the internet that 9% of Americans thought it was at least somewhat likely that aliens were involved in the disappearance of the airliner, and this of course fueled further denigrating commentary about ET contact. So why exactly were extraterrestrials included in the list of possible suspects for a missing airliner? While the Clinton interview could be played off as laughs and late-night comedy, this survey is about a horrific situation involving the disappearance and likely death of 239 people. Surely “space aliens” wasn’t listed as a joke in this serious poll.
Considering the points in Clinton’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel, along with De la Torre’s study and the CNN poll, it seems the efforts to portray extraterrestrials as hostile has been effective and already affected people at a subconscious level, with the media playing a vital role in re-enforcing this viewpoint. The higher the profile of the news outlet or public figure discussing ET topics, the more we the public can be sure that the angle has been carefully considered to serve a particular purpose or produce a certain outcome. For this reason, objectivity is needed when assessing media dialogue related to extraterrestrials, as there is the potential for this issue to be compromised by those who benefit from long-term planetary war, strife, and weapons-spending. Ultimately, if a false alien invasion were to be perpetrated, a population conditioned to fear interplanetary visitors is exactly what would allow manipulation on this issue. So, are we being prepared for a false flag alien invasion? The rhetoric supporting an attack has been around for decades, and even today repeats in an eerily consistent manner.
