Angee Dixson joined Twitter on August 8th and immediately began posting furiously—about 90 times a day. A self-described American Christian conservative, Dixson defended President Donald Trump's response to the unrest in Charlottesville, criticized the removal of Confederate monuments, and posted pictures purporting to show violence by left-wing counter-protestors.

"Dems and Media Continue to IGNORE BLM and Antifa Violence in Charlottesville," she wrote above a picture of masked demonstrators labeled "DEMOCRAT TERROR."

But Dixson appears to have been a fake


i'm not saying any of y'all are bots or russian or russian bots... but are you sure about everyone you're getting your news from? when you see folks talking online, are you sure they're all legit? these bots used to tweet about trump and now they're tweeting about charlottesville... drawing false equivalences and seeming to bring out a lot of the same talking points i've been seeing around here.

Securing Democracy has launched a dashboard to track the influence of Russian bots on twitter...

interesting to consider, how much of what you're seeing has been automatically generated by someone else's agenda?

""Dems and Media Continue to IGNORE BLM and Antifa Violence in Charlottesville," "

Don't know, nor care who wrote that, cause it's fact.

Clever combinations of controlled opposition and feigned outrage make good PR to make people automatically "hate" or "Like".

8. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
9. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If it's charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
10. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
11. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts forsocialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
12. Gain control of all student newspapers.
13. Use student riots to ferment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
14. Infiltrate the Press.
15. Gain control of key positions in radio, T.V., and motion pictures.
16. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.
17. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.
18. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
19. Break down culture standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and T.V.
20. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity, as "normal, natural, healthy."
21. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
22. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
23. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
24. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
25. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the cultural education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
26. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrist can understand or treat.
27. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
28. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

Stated goals of Russian Communism in 1963.

Seems pretty legit. They wanted to divide and conquer back then...guess it took a bit longer for the seeds to sprout.

A sample of 600 Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence operations have been promoting hashtags for Charlottesville such as "antifa," a term for activists on the far left; and "alt-left," a term Trump used, which was interpreted by many as suggesting an equivalence between liberal demonstrators and white nationalists in the so-called alt-right.


That's straight up bullsnip and amateur league.

If it was the Russians they wouldn't be leaving any tracks.

Tracks conveniently left behind!

Come on people.

Don't let your political ideology cloud your common sense.

Of all places RT!

Troll Control



Twitter says it is boosting efforts to stop impersonation, spoofing and personal data leaks in the latest round of updates that are part of the corporation’s long term plan to deal with internet abuse on their platform.


I say it's more likely antis are trying to impersonate Russia to manufacture an old villain for a supposed new crime.

Probably more than that... But you have to realize that white skin doesn't always equal the same racial purity that one side was trying to achieve...nor the political cleansing another faction was trying achieve.
