Nothing is a surprise anymore.


British Broadcaster Channel 4 News had exclusively obtained a vast cache of data used by Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign on almost 200 million American voters.

It reveals that 3.5 million Black Americans were categorized by Donald Trump’s campaign as ‘Deterrence’ – voters they wanted to stay home on election day.

The ‘Deterrence’ project can be revealed after Channel 4 News obtained the database used by Trump’s digital campaign team

I mean I'm sure there are plenty of Black MAGA supporters so why blatantly target an entire racial group? It makes to sense to me either considering blacks tend to conservative and religious, at least many I know. Why try and block them? Instead of more effectively courting them? Candice Owens, Kanye West, all good examples of how Trump can rally blacks, but instead his campaign targeted against??



Further:


The massive database included the details of nearly 200 million Americans, categorised into eight groups, including ones titled “get out the vote” and “persuasion,” to target potential voters in 16 battleground election states with ads both on social media and on television, the outlet reported.

The leaked database included vastly detailed information, including addresses, party affiliation and voting history. It also scored individuals on election issues such as jobs, law and order and healthcare, the outlet reported.

According to the investigation, the targeted ads aimed to dissuade a select group of voters from supporting Clinton and those in the “deterrence” group were those who the campaign’s chief data scientist later said the campaign “hope don’t show up to vote.”

It doesn't seem to me any indication of outright suppression, rather this was mainly geared towards a social media campaign and data collection, and Facebook seems to be one of the leading culprits in all this. Not a good look, but no doubt it helped.

That's an interesting video.

If I remember correctly the Democrats have a project they use to deter people from voting for Trump .

Maybe you've heard of them , it's Called CNN and MSNBC .

Twitter , Facebook and Youtube do there part for the project also censoring videos and rhetoric they deem factually incorrect .

"Omgerd guys, they campaign using social media metrics! Let's make him look racist!"
Yawn
Trump should reverse pervert Joes 3 strikes laws that jailed all the AA people and use their votes.

Seriously though. Trump vs Biden?
If I was the FBI, I would just drive around all day and look for Biden stickers, run their plates, then raid their homes.
Probably solve some trafficking cases.
Might even find Johnny Gosh

I think it's time to label the Democrat party a terrorist group and ban it from future elections.

That would be hilarious.

That's actually one reason I can not be a Democrat.

I am a white man. The only way I would be allowed in is if I attack myself because I have a penis and white skin.

They hate me for who I was born as then claim Im the bad guy.

They are genocidal maniacs seeking national socialism and the eradication of my ethnicity.

So yeah I want these psychos banned forever. No more Nazis please.

While I do agree with you .

This is only a temporary situation .

The socialist are simply using the minorities to stir chaos and push the white majority into a guilt corner, But once the Socialist claim power they will take all there pawn pieces the Minorites , LGBTQ community all of them and sweep them under the rug as they will no longer be needed.

In the end order must be restored, even Socialist know that.

I read the article. So the campaign did what every single other campaign has done, ever. It used new tools to do it, ones that will continue to be used until we move on from them, but that is the only difference between the 2016 election and the 1868 election for example.

I assume the unethical of all parties involved in politics, let me know when something illegal happens.

I'm reading. Something smells fishy about this.

Vast in scale, it contains details on almost 200 million Americans, among more than 5,000 files, which together amass almost 5 terabytes of data – making it one of the biggest leaks in history.

All right all you computer whizzes. Who has this kind of capacity and capability to harvest this kind of information and the physical resources to house it? I can't see the Trump campaign team even have the computing capability to pull this off.

I am suspecting the coups d'état is still full steam ahead.

Actually, to me, it appears to be files the Obama administration possessed and used an Australian news outlet to leak it to the public as a leaked Trump file. Of course the actual source is anonymous, I suspect.

Brad Parscale, the campaign’s 2016 digital director told PBS Frontline: “I would say I’m nearly 100 percent sure we did not run any campaigns that targeted even African Americans.”

You don’t seem to care about Dem ballot harvesting which is actually illegal and you want us to care about someone legally advertising?

No.
