Imitated Russian tactics in 2016 senate election in Alabama.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/19/us/alabama-senate-roy-jones-russia.html#click=https://t.co/WhWvMrBfH3

Makes you wonder if they used the same tactics in the 2018 house races. Needless to say dems should now quit using Russian interference as a reason Hillary lost, or risk delegitimizing their house gains.

This article is a disgusting read. The campaign was funded by LinkedIn cofounder and was well known in the dem party. Who knows how many millions of votes in the midterms were affected. Hopefully republicans see this and take the gloves off in 2020.

If nothing else, it should stop the self appointed moral superiority of the hypocritical members of the left. Especially on this board.

Heh Heh. Therefore, with that logic, any 12 year old kid with a computer determines your and our nation's fate? Priceless. My kid was hacking as a high school Freshman, and that was long ago. Just think what the Yutes of today are able to foist upon an ignorant bunch of old farts that have a broken google.

You guys are saying it influenced the election. Do memes have impact or not?

Did you read the article?

Much more than memes - if republicans funded/condoned something like that I would be the first to say it was wrong.

Don’t expect the same objectivity from the left. By any means necessary, right?

The democrats are such a lying sleazy bunch. Spend two years making up a russian collusion story to hobble their President, while all the time, it has been them.





"Facebook suspended five accounts linked to Democratic operatives who engaged in “coordinated inauthentic behavior” in a bid to steer votes away from Alabama Republican Roy Moore during last year’s special Senate election.

The announcement comes following a New York Times report last week that exposed the scheme, in which the users created a Facebook page and imitated conservative Alabamians who weren’t satisfied with the Republican candidate while encouraging others to write in another candidate. 

“We’ve recently removed five accounts run by multiple individuals for engaging in coordinated inauthentic behavior on Facebook around the Alabama special election, and our investigation is ongoing,” Facebook said in a statement.

The scheme also involved creating thousands of fake Russian accounts on Twitter that began following Moore. This effort attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore’s candidacy."

The democrat party is full of criminals that lie and cheat to try to win elections. After watching the dnc rig the primary and F Bernie I guess nothing they do should surprise me. I'm confused how there are still any dems trying to whine about russian collusion in our elections? It was them. They are hypocritical and insane.
Just ask the New York Times...





"Democrat Silicon Valley billionaire Reid Hoffman issued an apology on Wednesday for funding a group that falsely tried to give an impression the Russian government was supportingAlabama Republican Roy Moore in last year’s Senate election against now-Sen. Doug Jones.

In the last election cycle he donated $7 million to Democratic groups, though his money also pours into non-traditional groups that aren’t mandated to report their funding and often operate in the shadows.

One such groups is American Engagement Technologies (AET), a firm run by former Obama appointee Mikey Dickerson, which received $750,000 from Hoffman and was part of the effort to falsely portray the Republican’s senate bid as being supported by the Kremlin.

Hoffman said AET facilitated a secret project with a budget of $100,000. One participant in the project was Jonathon Morgan, the chief executive of New Knowledge, a firm that wrote a report – released by the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier this month – about Russia’s social media operations in the 2016 election and its efforts to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump.

Democratic operatives created thousands of fake Russian accounts on Twitter and began following Moore, prompting attention from local and national media that falsely suggested Russia is backing Moore’s candidacy.

The project also involved creating a Facebook page and imitated conservative Alabamians who weren’t satisfied with the Republican candidate while encouraging others to write in another candidate.

The disinformation campaign was first revealed by the New York Times that obtained an internal report detailing the efforts.

We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet,” the internal report said.

It also took credit for “radicalizing Democrats with a Russian bot scandal” after experimenting “with many of the tactics now understood to have influenced the 2016 elections.”

This is actually an incredible story and verifies all that we have been saying.

The over the top muh Russia thing from the salty dems.  You knew this would eventually turn into a dirty democrat trick.

I’m guessing that’s something a Trump supporter has to say. Call it a deflection.

I have noticed this as well.  I don't understand why they just cannot argue facts and policy.  All the name calling is low down.

How exciting when you guys find a legitimate story. Play it to the hilt and act like it's normal, common place. It was wrong, not close to asking the Russians to produce the emails you know they have, but wrong nonetheless. Can we move on to something else.......geesh.

LOL the revelation and proof that the dems create their own collusion, a NYT report that is literally unspinnable for the ole freshturd. So he goes to what dems do best. Whine like a b1tch and ask us to not talk about it anymore. Let me get you a hanky, snowflake boy.

I don't deny what is true. I don't suggest liberals are perfect. It's the righties that insist on perfection from the opposition and turn their heads when their big orange savior lies and goes to play golf. Admit your wrong occasionally and you'll show some integrity. When the majority of your support stems from conspiracies and exaggerated claims, you don't have much to stand on.
