Kevork Almassian, Lindsey Snell: "Circle Jerk" Played Out Through the Illusory Truth Effect

 Circle jerk has rather crude roots, but, it's pejorative meaning is very relevant to this situation. Actually it's relevant to lots of situations. 

Circle Jerk- Know your meme "Circle Jerk" is a pejorative slang term referring to a positive feedback loop which occurs when an idea, belief or meme that is already customary within an online community becomes re-iterated and rewarded in a perpetual cycle"

  Oh and if you wonder why Kevork's, ahem, work never appears here? Simply put, he's disinfo. 100 percent, Grade A, garbage. I caught on to his lies some years ago. You may beg to differ?  I'm unconcerned. That's my opinion and it's been formed for very good reasons.

 Ditto for Lindsey Snell. Lindsey (spook masquerading as a journalist) Snell. I pointed out the disinfo Snell connection here back nearly two weeks ago.

I was shocked and disappointed to see normally critical commentators (Arevordi) spreading gossip as fact. I was  not surprised to see this rubbish used at Moon of Alabama. In fact I would have expected no less.

Lindsey Snell is making the claim that Turkey shifted fighters to Azerbaijan- She is a spook. A spy. An american embedded with their terror crew.

"Lindsey Snell, a journalist who was previously jailed by Turkish authorities, released a photo that alleges to show men from the Hamza Division arriving in Baku via Ankara"

Lindsey Snell if full of sh*t- spook, spook, spook
Hubby had a hand in the attempted Turkish coup

Last time I covered her "reporting" she was in Quandil- with the PKK- so her spinning would cover to the PKK shift to Armenia beautifully

I took the time to check her twitter feed. From where this spin originated. She claims straight up it's all rumour. And when chastized for spreading falsities, her reply, is just not to follow her.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">From Hamza Division source. Supposedly these Hamza men arrived in Baku today via Ankara. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Lindsey Snell (@LindseySnell) <a href="">September 22, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script> 

Supposedly. Supposedly (according to what is generally assumed or believed often used to indicate that the speaker doubts the truth of the statement).


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I always indicate that they&#39;re unconfirmed reports, but I sure wouldn&#39;t want to cause &quot;panic&quot; among the delicate flowers of Syrian war twitter. <br><br>My sources...are mercenaries. What about that is unclear? <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Lindsey Snell (@LindseySnell) <a href="">September 22, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>  

Unconfirmed Reports. Unconfirmed Reports. And sarcasm towards those questioning her "reports"

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This news is circulating among SNA news groups. Several militants have said they&#39;ll be going, or know someone who is. <br><br>Again: unconfirmed mercenary rumors. But there are a lot of them, spanning several factions. (If mercenary gossip offends you, don&#39;t follow me.) <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Lindsey Snell (@LindseySnell) <a href="">September 23, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script> 

Again, unconfirmed mercenary rumours.

And yes Kevork's tweet is there as well. 

Article that tipped me off to Circle Jerk Amplifying Illusory Truth Effect

Syrian of Armenian origin fabricate claims on use of SNA mercenaries in Karabakh fighting - CCBS

Rising claims of use of mercenaries in the Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict have been found to be fake news produced by social media users, a research conducted by the Bulgaria-based think tank, Caspian and Black Sea Analysis Foundation (CCBS) said.

    Regarding the Sept. 21 story, "Azerbaijan's Syrian mercenaries," which includes the first "reporting" on the alleged deployment of Syrian mercenaries to fight for Azerbaijan, CCBS said: "Interestingly, the source was a Syrian user of Armenian origin, Kevork Almassian. Without mentioning any specific and reliable source, Almassian put forth his 'insight' on Syrian mercenaries as a fact."

    It was determined that on the same day, self-proclaimed investigative journalist, Lindsey Snell, tweeted her report on the deployment of "Turkish-backed Syrian National Army," by referring to Almassian.

    Accordingly, Snell also shared a photo of unknown people in a plane bound for an unidentified destination. The photo was accompanied by a comment on the Hamza Division's supposed arrival in Baku. "Ms. Snell`s sympathy with the Armenian and Kurdish causes was also noticed by the user based on the former's tweets," the think tank said.
    The CCBS added that Snell's tweets were even picked up by a media outlet, the Greek City Times. Our investigation found out that the majority of further mentions of the 'Hamza Division news' were simply quoting those initial sources tracking back to Snell's unverified tweet,"


  1. not sure why the tweets showed up the way they did, but, no matter. the damming words are there and the link is provided so you can see for yourself.

    Hope none of my readers bought into this tripe?

  2. Kevork cries crocodile tears for Syria while aligning himself with it's occupiers (Usreal Kurds)
