Do you have a direct link? I have searched the website you linked to and cannot find anything.
Meanwhile, what, pray tell, does Russia have to do with the wall? And how, precisely, can they make democracy less secure through this campaign?
No he didn't. He posted a link where our esteemed MSM and FB deemed Brian's sites to be "fake news". Fake news to them is anything that doesn't follow their narrative.
No, I wanted the link backing up his claim above. It may very well be true that that website made such a claim, I just couldn't find it after searching the site. But thanks, Jazzy.
A View from the Digital Trenches – Lessons from Year One of Hamilton 68
This article helps delineate the process used by Russian controlled web accounts (bots) to increase traffic and therefore internet "buzz" around Russian targeted agenda items. The Hamilton 68 dashboard itself shows the numbers of bot tweets/ Facebook posts etc. by tag.
The point being only that Russain controlled bots are promoting this go fund me account. To what end? Your guess is as good as mine.
The campaign is receiving plenty of promotion from Americans, Vic.
One thing I have noticed, though, is how many Americans are being accused of being Russian bots, myself included. It's like y'all found a new buzz phrase and are throwing it around willy nilly.
Yes plenty of buzz. But why so much from accounts linked to the Kremlin? Here are the screen shots from Hamilton 68. I don't know if they are fake, but it is interesting that these accounts are so focused on something that seems unlikely to be of interests to Russians.
Why? I follow an awful lot of news from various places around the world and know many others who do as well. You'll notice that some of our Canadian members here are far more knowledgeable about American politics than many Americans. On other platforms, I have found that to be true of members from much of Europe, as well as from other countries. What happens in American politics affects people worldwide. I would be very surprised if people, and especially governments, the world over didn't follow our political news.
Yes. I love that it is now trending on Russian influenced web accounts.
Yes, and ya know what? Many Americans are closely following the Gilet Jaunes, have joined UKIP (a UK political party) just to show support, signed a petition demanding Tommy Robinson's release from prison, and closely follow and support or oppose various people, events, laws, and governments worldwide. From Canada, to the UK, the EU, various European countries, Brazil, China, etc.
Why are you so afraid of Russia being part of the world, Vic? The internet has really brought the world much closer together in many respects... I find it interesting that you, Mr. Kumbayafest love everybody, is so very frightened of Russia. Won't you welcome Russians at your campfire, Vic? That's sad.
Not sure where that came from. But OK. I love that Russia supports this movement. That's what I said.
You are always careful to try to word things in such a way that you make your point, but can then deny what you really meant. A technicality that is quite transparent.
Damn!!...Here comes those meddling Russians again!!!..
Thanks for the heads up!..
I'm sure it will keep you up nights with worry. (Sarcasm off.)
Yea....I might need a shot of vodka, to kill the worry....so I can sleep.
HA HA HA!
Wow, I thought something was very fishy with that account, and the sad part is so many Americans have fallen for it. There will be NO wall, so a lot of people are being scammed....again by the Russians. And I doubt they will ever get their money back as the Fund has said, it's just another scam. People need to wake up.....and stop being so naive.
The guy who started it has had at least three other sites shut down for dis-information.
Wow, I was right, I knew it wasn't legitimate.... and thought right off that it was a scam.
That article doesn't say the fund the wall campaign is a scam, it simply points out that man behind it, who is who he says he is, a triple amputee veteran, has been accused of posting fake news in the past. His GoFundMe campaign for the wall is now over $13m.
Why are you talking to me, it's not my post, talk to Vic. If you think it's legitimate, go ahead and donate $1,000, and get that wall built. lol That's a lot of money that will probably go into his private bank account. Time will tell.
