So there's these "reopen" protests in various american states where people want the quarantine measures to be lifted because, uh, freedom or something.

Someone on Reddit has dug a teeny bit deeper into this phenomenon and uncovered some quite predictable but nonetheless worrying results:
https://www.reddit.com/r/maryland/comme ... re/fnstpyl

it's not a long read, but some bulletpoints for those of you who have the attention span of a brick wall:

- Many of the campaign pages on social media use the exact same template for the description texts.
- Following links on the various pages brings you to campaign websites and websites of gun rights activists in the various states. All of these sites have been registered by the same registrar on the same date.
- The group behind the liberate Minnesota campaign has strong ties to Betsy DeVos.
- Google Analytics ID's used on the various site all point to the same Google account.

A clear case of astroturfing going on here.

What are the chances that it’s Russia pushing these pages through the Pro-gun websites, trying to cause unrest and possible gun violence?

Pretty high although there appears to be ties to Betsy Devos, not sure what her angle is though but she's usually on the stupid side of things.

Betsy's brother, Erik Prince, is the founder of Blackwater, a private military contractor.

I wouldn't be too quick to call bullshit on this. Watch The Facebook Dilemma for a bit of insight into the manipulation of western social media.

Thanks phantasmagoria for the tip. I have scanned the video and will now sit down to view. Looks interesting...

EDIT: Halfway through.....Very interesting.
EDIT: The second video, the The Brad Parscale interview a good watch and know, I'd never heard of his name or notoriety before today :smirk:

Yet to watch The Facebook Dilemma Part 2

I had no idea Facebook was so big in the USA :rolleyes:

Independent journalist Aaron Mate proved Russiagate (and its retarded cousin Ukrainegate) to be a complete fabrication by the neo-liberal centrist establishment, unless you think a few troll posts on Facebook are all it takes to topple America's so-called "democracy". His coverage earned him a Pulitzer while the snakes like Maddow quietly flipped 24/7 RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA coverage to whatever the next bit of fluff was to confuse and distract the retarded masses.



Is Trump a corrupt retard? Absolutely, but in no way does he have the same pull with Russian oligarchs the way the Clintons do.

I watched both 'Dilemma' and the Brad Parscale interview programs. Really, interesting viewing today so again thank you phantasmagoria :up:

An eye opener for me in many ways as I never realized Facebook was so globally intrusive and dangerous.

Call me paranoid if you like but I think you need view all 3 to get the gist of this Facebook Dilemma. I am glad I am not big on using Facebook.

So the takeaway is that the virus is likely more widespread than we think, but it's also not as deadly as we think. It sounds like those early concerns of Covid-19 becoming a part of the annual flu season may be merited. Until there's a vaccine, this is going to continue to be trouble....

Even if he didn't personally do it, it's possible to do it yourself snd the results will be the same. All you need to prove this yourself is a keen eye on social media accounts and the knowledge of how to track who registers them. It's pretty obvious when you watch the activity and agendas they push that there's a concerted effort to brigade certain points. The betsy devos link to the protests supporting re-opening the US is a good example. The links to Cambridge analytica with russia are another and there's soo many more. Stating otherwise with the evidence out there just screams of someone burying their head in the sand..

https://mondediplo.com/2019/05/02russiagate-end

Quote:
The New York Times story makes no allusion to any evidence underlying the FBI’s concern. Instead, we learn that FBI was ‘disquieted’ by a ‘constellation of events’: ‘Mr Trump had caught the attention of FBI counterintelligence agents when he called on Russia during a campaign news conference in July 2016 to hack into the emails of his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Mr Trump had refused to criticise Russia on the campaign trail, praising President Vladimir V Putin. And investigators had watched with alarm as the Republican Party softened its convention platform on the Ukraine crisis in a way that seemed to benefit Russia.’

This account shows that the FBI opened up an extraordinary investigation of the president of the United States as an agent of Russia based on a malicious interpretation of public events: Trump’s July 2016 comment was a joke, and his U-turn on the Crimean crisis was both inconsequential (and later undermined in practice when Trump sold the weapons to Ukraine, a move Obama had opposed). And most saliently, if it was legitimate to investigate Trump for having ‘refused to criticise Russia on the campaign trail’ and ‘praising President Vladimir V Putin’, why not also investigate Trump for his lavish praise of the leaders of Israel and Saudi Arabia?

The emperor has no clothes. Why won't anyone in that room just say it? All these doctors and shit just sit there and humor him with diplomatic hand-holding answers, too fucking afraid to call him out. It's pathetic. When he leaves office and everybody starts doing interviews to give us their real opinion of their time in his presence, they get NO fucking credit. :miffed:
