Mix in Russian bots and he wins.


Then you say:


Electoral process? I'm talking about the online war, not Election Day.


So again, mix in bots and he wins what? What does he win? And he wins because of bots?

The 4chan trolls were responsible for Trump winning the election? Wow. Getting desperate are we. Isn't this really embarassing for all the people that were involved in Hillary's campaign. She spend 1 billion USD on her campaign and she got beaten by people who worship pepe the frog. Hillary should leave the country and never come back. Oh wait i want to watch her face when she is getting locked up. Yeah i think i prefer the jail part.

The Russians and the Chinese are allowed to use the Internet, and they may not tell you who they are!

That's not what I said at all.

I said comparing Russia using bots to influence the election to the DNC using bots isn't the same thing.

I don't think either one should be doing it. But one is a foreign Government and the other isn't.

But I never said if the DNC did or not. Nor that I agreed with it if they did.

Prime thread as usual Fox. Bumped for intent.
But why bother with bots if you can get a billionaire
to fund humans to REALLY screw things up like
Correct the Record? But a far-right news site being
co-opted and steered by the Kremlin? |:wow just:|
I'm no professional musician, but I do know when a
song sucks itself right off the Top 40.

Bots are too detectable, but real fools can fool each
other forever. Let's concede that outside these hollowed
halls there still resides a huge population a droolers.

Election influencing is only okay if it's done by the media in collusion with an entire political party!

It no secret the Trump campaign and Clinton's had their own bots but Trump won the online war because he also had an online army of devote trollish supporters, lots of them and they were free hailing from sites like 4chan and The_Donald. Mix in Russian bots and he wins. He didn't know this kind of support was coming but he reaped the rewards.


Clinton herself looked into why she lost, it is reported
she ran a crappy campaign, her own doing.

But we all know Russian bots are real, they were here in mass
quantity during the Crimea invasion, defending Russia.
Heck, I tangled with them being a critic of Russia myself.

Clinton lost fair and square!

out of curiosity, are they looking into the MSM and their rigid promotion of Clinton? Or is this a Russia only party?
If this wasn't so damn transparent and stupid, it would be funny, but sadly, it's reality and about half of the people seem to be oblivious to the facts.

The way the DNC wants to govern, they might as well be a foreign government.

This is too simplistic, IMO. The FBI isn't worried about "far-right news," they're targetting any and all news that aligned against the Establishment's narrative the Establishment Propaganda Arm MSM so dutifully pushed. This is all a sham intended to clandestinely regain control over information in a new digital world while maintaining the illusion of Freedom of the Press. The Establishment can't bust in and say "Your news website didn't follow our demanded narrative, so we're shutting you down" without massive public outcry, but it can sure as shooting find enough short sighted Americans to support them busting down that outlet's door while saying "Hey, you're working with EVIL RUSSIA (oooooohhhhhh so scary! much cold war. very Putin!) we are shutting you down in the name of NATIONAL SECURITY." You see, Americans need to lose rights to ensure our rights aren't violated by the Russians.

Can we break out the long knives in DC finally and eliminate these IC bastards and their deep state overlords, please?

I am referring to the online war




The Great Meme War refers to the internet based campaign conflict conducted by supporters of presidential candidates in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The war was waged from June 2015 to November 2016. Users of social media, mostly from Reddit and 4chan, conducted numerous "operations" to sway the public opinion of United States citizens to assist their preferred candidate and their presidential campaign. Using internet memes, the groups were successful in starting numerous trends on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Hashtags such as #draftourgirls and #blaxit pounded the globalist forces and may have led to their ultimate defeat.

Seems like there are already numerous historical documents describing The Great Meme War of 2016.

They have people in high places, doing the dirty work.
However they have been met with great resistance from
the people who resorted to lessor known news outlets
to read and voice an opinion. And they are hysterical!

Just look at Nancy Pelosi, she is hysterical and she is
a member of the gang of 8. Crazy and senile as she
is, she wields a long arm of power.

Same with Feinstien, another from the same mold.
She is not quite as hysterical as Nancy though.

They are losing control and will do whatever it
takes, even bringing out the boys in the basement
on the American people.
