The Five Stages of Baloney

Posted by M. C. on September 9, 2022

BUT, radical environmentalists don’t want that solution, and they never will. They want nothing short of environmental devastation, ultimately forcing humans on a depopulated planet to go back to living in the woods and digging for roots and tubers. AKA, “the natural life.”

“Hey Mike, make up an order of eight pounds of baloney to go.”

“Sure. You want the cheap stuff?”

“No, no. This is for the upcoming election. I need the good brand.”

“Are you lying about your opponent or pumping up the moron in your own Party?”


“OK, that’s the Special. I have to order it. It’ll take three days.”

Trends and memes come and go.

At one time, you’d see: TOP TEN REASONS WHY…

That faded out.

Now, we get: THE FIVE STAGES OF…

So I’m chiming in with my own big five stages.

ONE: You conceive the idea of creating baloney.

TWO: You pick an issue around which you’re going to wrap baloney.

THREE: You make the baloney.

FOUR: You wrap it around the issue.

FIVE: You sell it to a hungry audience.

But it’s still baloney.

In the field of propaganda, baloney acquires its value from the “vital” issue it’s wrapped around. Climate change, for example.

Come closer. Shh. Here’s the secret. Here’s the trick. When you perform it adroitly, the issue ITSELF is baloney to begin with. Once you’ve sold that, you can surround it with many more layers of baloney (like tree rings).

“Well, it’s a real issue, but the nonsense accumulating around it is pathetic.”

No. In certain key instances, the core issue isn’t real. A good pro knows how to wrap baloney around baloney. That’s why he earns his big paycheck.

Take racism. It’s presently defined as WHITE PEOPLE. ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACISTS. That’s the issue. It’s framed in universal terms. No exceptions. It’s baloney.
