Yeah so, Mark Zuckerberg got held personally responsible for Hillary’s election loss, based on the claim that Russians posted shitty pro-Trump memes on his website – and the assumption that he is personally responsible for everything that is posted on a site with two billion monthly users.
Then he had the worst day in the history of the stock market.
So I guess now he’s just doing whatever.
Facebook says it has removed 32 accounts and pages believed to have been set up to influence the mid-term US elections in November.
It said it was in the “very early” stages of the investigation and did not yet know who was behind the pages.
It said the creators had gone to greater lengths to hide their identities than a Russia-based campaign to disrupt the 2016 presidential vote.
It described attempts to erase election interference as an “arms race.”
What did Facebook discover?
The social network said in a blog that it had identified 17 suspect profiles on Facebook and seven Instagram accounts.
It said that there were more than 9,500 Facebook posts created by the accounts and one piece of content on Instagram.
And what kind of content was this?
Well, for instance, black nationalism.
And some kind of new age mind elevation thing.
I guess the Russians are getting… surreal… with their meddlesomeness.
What else is there?
Well, a whole bunch of anti-Trump stuff.
Mexican Aztec revolution materials.
…and a campaign to destroy Unite the Right 2.
As far as I can tell from what the news is reporting, none of this material that was removed this week is pro-Trump, pro-Republican or even anything other than far-left.
But that didn’t stop the kike Adam Schiff and his goyish bitch-toy Mark Warner from doing a victory dance, claiming this latest Facebook announcement proves Russians did Donald Trump.
Democratic congressman Adam Schiff said: “Today’s announcement from Facebook demonstrates what we’ve long feared: that malicious foreign actors bearing the hallmarks of previously-identified Russian influence campaigns continue to abuse and weaponise social media platforms to influence the US electorate.”
Democratic Senator Mark Warner, who is vice-chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, also pointed his finger at Moscow.
“Today’s disclosure is further evidence that the Kremlin continues to exploit platforms like Facebook to sow division and spread disinformation, and I am glad that Facebook is taking some steps to pinpoint and address this activity,” he said.
The unhinged lunatic Lindsey Graham went so far as to say that the above memes, and their ostensible connection to Russia, are a reason for new sanctions.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham added that he intended to pursue retaliatory measures by introducing a sanctions bill against Russia on Thursday “that has everything but the kitchen sink in it”.
“It’ll be the sanctions bill from hell. And any other country that is trying to interfere with our election should suffer the same fate.”
Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr, a Republican, said that the operation’s apparent goal had been to “sow discord, distrust, and division in an attempt to undermine public faith in our institutions and our political system”.
“Russians want a weak America,” he added.
To be fair, Facebook has not said that this was the Russians. It is just politicians saying it.
Facebook says they don’t know, but think the above memes are an example of someone trying to… do something meddlesome.
It’s all very confusing.
I don’t even know what any of this means.
Firstly, anyone from any country is allowed to post whatever kind of memes they want on the internet. Obviously, European countries now have laws about hate speech and so on, but there is certainly no law that says any foreign country is banned from posting memes on Facebook.
Foreigners seeking to influence the elections of other countries is a standard practice.
Remember that George Soros had an organization set up in Hungary with the stated purpose of installing a new government. When Hungary’s Prime Minister put up ads complaining about it, they accused him of anti-Semitism.
The EU told him it would be illegal for him to tell the Soros group they were not allowed to operate a regime-change group in the country.
Israeli foreigners have the most powerful lobby in America, which operates completely openly with the stated goal of influencing American politics in a way that is beneficial to Jews.
So the whole thing of moving the whole Russian conspiracy from:
- They are going to hack voting machines, to
- They did the DNC hack, to
- Jeff Sessions had a meeting with the Russian ambassador, to
- Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer, to
- Donald Trump paid hookers in Russia to piss on a bed, to
- Paul Manafort bought a beach house, to
- Donald Trump had sex with a porn star, to
- Russians posted memes on Facebook
Was a very weird progression.
But these new memes – what is their alleged purpose even?
What the hell is even going on?
I don’t get it.
