Seems like the Twitter account "Boston Antifa" forgot to turn off the location sharing option before Tweeting. Turns out the Twitter account is based in Vladivostok, Russia.



I don't know what this means, I just found it interesting. What do you guys think?

I found this on Reddit so I can't take credit for it, but reading through the comments of the post I found this:


The strategy is to use as many triggering buzzwords as possible to piss off the other side, breed discord in the society and thus weaken the country. It is written down pretty clearly in the book "Foundations of Geopolitics" by russian ultra-nationalist Aleksandr Dugin. It seems to work frightfully well.

Example, taken from the wikipedia article:

Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke "Afro-American racists". Russia should "introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics."


Not sure how to link directly to the comment but it's one of the top ones if you scroll down a bit.

Is there any merit to this? Do you think this is what Antifa is, a psyop to raise tensions in the U.S.?

It is a matter of faith with some that Russian agents are NOT trying to affect American any way they can.

Besides, the CIA can spoof anything, right?

Besides, that could be photoshopped, who knows?

Besides, fake news, prove it.

Etc. etc. etc.

There's no way to prove it because the account has since been suspended and/or deleted. But then again the fact the account is no longer active gives some weight to the picture in my opinion.

Well, there you go!

(I'm just imagining some of the arguments you're going to see ... doesn't surprise me at all, with the mass of proven Russian attacks on our cyberlives, that they're doing this sort of crap.)

I edited my post, I believe the fact that the account is no longer visible gives the screenshot in question some validity.

You do know you can change your location to anywhere you want, right?

No, I didn't know that, I don't use Twitter. I'm wondering why they would choose Russia and then promptly hide or delete the account once it was pointed out?

ETA: It seems Twitter suspended the account permanently, they didn't shut it down themselves.

Who even cares? The fact you are even able to change it already makes this thread moot.

But let's play along with your premise and pretend it was a Russian.. so what?

There is war for the mind going on, makes sense that our enemies would try and have some influence, they have been given a platform to do so, why wouldn't they use the opportunity?

I am wondering why so many believe so much of what is posted on the 'net. It's a great trolling and propaganda tool for those who are willing to believe.

Possibly but who's really getting played the people calling antifa out or the ones that have coopt? Either way there has been REAL heinous action under that group title.

I think the feds should investigate whether Russia is behind these riots and protests. ANTIFAP may well be supported by RUssia.

That wasn't the premise of my thread, I just saw it and decided to post it here to get the thoughts of ATS members.

I feel like I've been more than fair up to this point in the thread. Stop assuming, I even admitted that your point was valid. Don't let your emotions think for you.

ETA: Any thoughts on my second post in this thread? Do you believe it's possible that foreign governments could be using social media to radicalize American citizens? A Russian wrote a book a while back that seems to outline a strategy that mirrors current events.
