Activist Post: British Army Creates Psy-Op Unit of Facebook Warriors

The British Army is creating a new special forces unit and are not ashamed in declaring who their target is. It’s you.

The 77th Brigade, which will formally be established in April, is being created to counteract narratives on social media that the government would rather you not be cognizant of. These 1,500 ‘Facebook Warriors’ — as they are being called — will be heavily proficient in psychological operations and unconventional warfare. Their duties are being outlined as “non-lethal warfare.”

A British military spokesperson stated that the

77th Brigade is being created to draw together a host of existing and developing capabilities essential to meet the challenges of modern conflict and warfare. It recognises that the actions of others in a modern battlefield can be affected in ways that are not necessarily violent.

The 77th, which will be stationed in Hermitage — about 60 miles west of London — admits that it will employ the tactics of spreading both disinformation and truths across multiple social media platforms, according to reports.

Great. As if we need more special interest groups trying to pull the Internet one way or another.

What’s facebook? The last time I looked, it was a mass produced corporate advertising platform, I prefer something more bespoke myself. As do the people who purport to be in with the in crowd, they give the impressionable public a poke, then swan off to their second country homes to watch country village cricket, eat cucumber sandwiches and indulge themselves in high minded convoluted conversation in exclusive coffee shops, straight off the backs of the rest of us saps.

Just call me Victor Meldrew lol :LOL:
