    It is one of the successes of the COINTELPRO that it established character assassination as a substitute for political analysis in many quarters of the Movement.

    These moves, as defined by the COINTELPRO, are designed to "disrupt, discredit, destroy and otherwise neutralize" all real and potential Black nationalist and activist leadership and leadership groups (Senate Hearings, Church Report).

    A total of 2,370 officially approved COINTELPRO actions were admitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee, and thousands more have since been uncovered. Four main methods have been revealed:
    1. Infiltration: Agents and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit and disrupt. Their very presence served to undermine trust and scare off potential supporters.

    I quite agree.

    Those with ulterior motives often use such tactics to sling mud at any others who may possess the ability to shine a light on their own secret agendas.

    This, too, is an example of "Poisoning the Well."


    It's a typical M.O. for deceivers....

    ....in the African American community, it is more commonly known as "pourin' salt."

    but some folks do it so much and so often, they got to be getting paid, unless it's some kind of fetish
