Let's examine some tweets by a Russian troll named CASSISHERE back in March of 2015:
SOURCE


"In honor of Star Ways Day, read our original movie review of "The Empire Strikes Back" t.co... t.co..."



"LA Times book critic @davidulin exdplains why he didn't sign the Charlie Hebdo protest letter t.co..."



"News For #TheResistance: Trump Just Released The Text Of His Bigoted “Religious Liberty” Executive Order t.co..."



"It is staggering to see the mental blindness of some ppl defending Trump while seeing the evidence of his beliefs. t.co..."


They look like any old tweet. So we have to ask, besides the user (or lack thereof) behind the tweets, what's the difference between a Russian troll's tweets and anyone else's? Absolutely nothing. So why are we treating them differently? Why are the Russian tweets dangerous, while anyone else's isn't?

I believe Hillary is a Russian troll because:
1. She is the reason Trump won.
2. During speeches and in debates she talks like English is a foreign language to her.
3. She looks like a Russian troll or some sort of troll.

Russians influenced the election?

Is this why I've been hooked on borscht? Dang, I though it was just because beets were some kind of new superfood or something ...

That's a little disrespectful to Russian trolls isn't it? They're not that ugly.

Yup it happened, they far surpassed China and our tech idustries allowing them to hack straight into your brain when needed, you'd think they could find a more productive use for it. I'm going to have to re-engineer my tinfoil hat now, thanks Russia.

I think the ultimate and easy goal was to further the divide in America, and not just along political lines but also social issues.

And Russia is not the only Nation to play these games. The U.S. is not so innocent either so why do we get so upset at other Nations over this?

Thanks for all the replies.

From what I gather, the only people that believe the Russian influence/fake news stuff is the followers of the losing candidate. I suppose they have to try and blame someone.

I'm from the UK and people over here cannot handle losing either. We're now living in a reality where they protest about losing and demand another vote. We even had people come out saying they voted to leave the EU but only for a laugh and didn't think it would happen, so they want to change their vote. Seriously!

Final question - what would be so different today if Clinton had won the election?

Well, Hillary wanted a no fly zone over Syria with American aircraft shooting down Russian aircraft....Hillary would literally have caused WW3 and a nuclear exchange between Russia and the US.....

.... I know, I know.
Understandable.
After all, in the past, Putin made Hillary "look bad"...Ooo, THAT Man !!!!....How dare he....

...What's a few tens of million DEAD to placate Hillary's boundless narcissist ego......

This is how Russia influenced the election; from a joint study on the subject regarding the 2016 election by Princeton University and Dartmouth College:


Specifically, we find that approximately one in four Americans visited a fake news website, but that consumption was disproportionately observed among Trump supporters for whom its largely pro-Trump content was attitude-consistent. However, this pattern of selective exposure was heavily concentrated among a small subset of people — almost six in ten visits to fake news websites came from the 10% of Americans with the most conservative information diets. Finally, we specifically identify Facebook as the most important mechanism facilitating the spread of fake news and show that fact-checking largely failed to e↵ectively reach consumers of fake news.


www.dartmouth.edu...

It would seem that "a small subset of mostly conservative information seekers" where influenced into voting for the person they would have voted for anyway regardless of Russian interference.

Hope the Russians didn't pay to much making Trump porn for Trump addicts. Seems like a waist of money to me.

The thing about this question, is that the people who were influenced weren't politically savvy enough to know they were being influenced. They still don't.

Which is why we had the result we did.

We'd be arguing about a liberal judge that may have been in the viscinaty when another person was hit by a thrown glass.

Sorry Doll, but that is 100% projection issues from the left.
You are the ones not realizing you were being manipulated by the MSM.

Normal Americans did not vote for Hillary because of Hillary's obvious failures:
-in EVERYTHING she did as SoS, such as Libya and Syria
-with those policies, Hillary CAUSED the migrant crisis
-in her criminal management of classified information
-in her election promise to create WW3 no fly zone over Syria
-in Rigging a Presidential primary against Bernie
- Finally, in defending a PEDOPHILE and getting him off despite the fact she knew him to be guilty and then laughed about it.

Normal Americans don't vote for monsters - gullible leftist idiots do.
