This is the second time that ‘progressive’ activists have been busted using social media to meddle in United States elections, but so far, there has been no ‘investigation’ into their activities.
Obama officials conducted the same type of ‘election tampering’ using social media, as is supposedly being investigated by the Special Counsel, according to reports.
In fact, a bunch of reports clearly show that former Obama campaign organizer, Mikey Dickerson, was instrumental in a disinformation campaign targeting Roy Moore, which was designed to derail GOP support for the senate candidate.
“He was not alone. Evan Coren, who has worked for the National Archives unit since Obama’s first term, also targeted the campaign and tried to trick conservatives into believing that Moore intended to re-impose prohibition.
“Coren and other operatives created a “Dry Alabama” Facebook page with a blunt message attached: Alcohol is evil and should be prohibited, The New York Times reported Monday, citing sources familiar with the matter.”
The page included images of car wrecks and ruined families, and its contents were targeted at business conservatives.
“Two wealthy Virginia donors who wanted to defeat Moore funded the project, according to a person who worked on the project and who spoke on condition of anonymity.
So, it appears that they worked.
Nowhere is there any evidence that Facebook tried to stop ‘false’ information when it concerned these campaigns against republicans, which were highly fake.
Jones previously stated his campaign was unaware of the project and is also calling for an investigation into who is behind the antics. Perhaps Robert Mueller will look into that real election meddling? Don’t bet on it.
“Coren’s false flag operation happened alongside a similar campaign by Dickerson, a former Obama official known for fixing the government’s notoriously glitchy Obamacare website.
In that scam, “operatives with New Knowledge, a group affiliated with Dickerson, created thousands of Twitter accounts posing as Russian bots to boost the election-year chances of Jones — the accounts began following Moore’s Twitter account in October 2017. The project created a slew of Facebook accounts as well that were designed to troll conservatives into opposing Moore.
“But, the misinformation project attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore’s candidacy.
“The Montgomery Advertiser, for one, was the first to cover the story using the Russian-bot angle. National media outlets quickly followed suit.
“Roy Moore flooded with fake Russian Twitter followers,” was the title of a New York Post story, which cited the Advertiser.
The Washington Post focused its reporting on the fact that Moore blamed Democrats for the fake accounts, which is completely true. Of course, there’s no ‘fact checker’ for these publishing propaganda machines.
Other outlets picked it up, and many commentators mocked Moore for blaming democrats.
“The cost of the effort, which was funded by liberal billionaire Reid Hoffman, totaled $100,000 — the identical amount Facebook says the Russian Internet Research Agency spent trolling people on social media leading up to the 2016 presidential election.”
Dickerson finally responded to reporters Monday.
“I received the report in early 2018, which is when I first learned about the false flag and write-in tactics,” Dickerson said in a press statement, referring to a 12-page report from New Knowledge detailing crucial elements of the project.
These acts clearly demonstrate the truthful adage that whatever liberals accuse their opponents of doing (Trump Russia scandal), is exactly what they are actually doing.
The Alabama attorney general called on federal authorities to investigate the state’s 2017 special election for the U.S. Senate yesterday, a move that was sparked by these recent reports. Steve Marshall made the announcement after conducting an informal inquiry into reports of the false-flag operation.
