So I heard that Hooters in Canada has a new contactless delivery service.
For a while it was knockers, but now it’s just honkers.
The Great Honkening has begun. We’re neck-deep in The Honker Games now.
(And loads more funny honking puns in today’s video, as Lucy and I vie for airtime with rowdy revelers enjoying the beach pre-parties just a few days before the start of Anarchapulco UNSTOPPABLE!)
You might have heard of sound torture – and by that, I don’t mean the durable and well-constructed grilling of prisoners – but actual psychological warfare using continuous loud noise or music to break their will. It’s not new either, but has actually been used as part of punishment and humiliation tactics since as early as there were oppressor and persecuted.
Music torture has been common practice for the CIA ever since it began its “enhanced interrogation program” in the early 2000s. Sgt. Mark Hadsell, a member of the U.S. Psychological Operations team, described the efficacy of the tactic: “If you play it for 24 hours, your brain and body functions start to slide, your train of thought slows down and your will is broken. That’s when we come in and talk to them.”
The process is designed to “create fear, disorient … and prolong capture shock” in prisoners. And it’s been particularly popular because it seems more palatable to the public.
Fittingly, Hitler’s SuperSoldiers used orchestras in Nazi concentration camps like Auschwitz in the summer of 1942. Female Jewish musicians were forced to perform marches and classical music composed by the likes of Schubert and Bach as new prisoners entered. And what musicians recalled most often, according to researchers, was the utter despair this situation created.
Another example… from 1967 to 1974, Greece experienced a military-style dictatorship during which culture was used to control the population. Prison camps were set up for communist “enemies,” and prisoners were bombarded with folk and patriotic music. Patriotic songs like the folk song “Gerakina” were used to “re-educate” Greeks who were on the path of communism and had lost their “Greekness”.
Personal accounts from prisoners describe sensory overload techniques, like playing music incessantly for 12 hours. The “re-education” was aimed at making prisoners “so demoralized, confused, shattered and desperate” that they would sign loyalty declarations to the government.
There are endless similar stories and it’s still in use. In fact, the famous Mandela rules, about minimum standards prisoners can expect, make no inclusion of sounds or music.
And, according to this guy on FBI-book, it’s been used by the police in Toronto as recently as a few years ago. And what’s good for the Kanadian Goose must be for the Common Good of the Gander, right? Turnabout is fair play and all that.
So, if you’re going to treat people as prisoners in their own home, or support your neighbors, friends and family being treated like convicts who should be punished and excluded from society because they choose not to take part in your vax-scamdemic, have a taste of your own medicine!
Oh, and don’t worry. It’ll only take 12 days to flatten the honk. And…well… a little collateral damage is to be expected.
