The Malthusian Straw Men

"Bill Gates Wants to Depopulate the Planet" - this claim is an example of a "Straw Man". A straw man is a rhetorical trick, used in polemical debate. You attack your opponent, refuting arguments, views or ideas never expressed by the opponent. This means of argumentation is frequently at play by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets.


Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.
