If you based your vote on Russian Facebook ads you were tricked

I finally had a long hard look at Russia’s 2016 Facebook ads.

The Vladster had a Facebook Page for everyone.

Were you a Blacktivist? Vlad was there with a false story
to convince you your government
has always hated you:

A Russian Facebook that makes a false connection between the persistance of the KKK and the demise of the Black Panthers
A Russian Facebook Ad that falsely claims the Black Panthers were founded to fight the KKK

Actually, the Black Panther’s formed as an armed citizens’ patrol to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality in Oakland, California. The Justice Department was formed to fight the KKK.

Are you LGBTQ? Vlad wants you to think of Bernie Sanders as a gay rights
superhero (especially ‘Berniacs’ who didn’t know Clinton and Sanders held
the same positions on Gay Rights):

A russian facebook ad that depicts Bernie Sanders as a gay superhero
Vlad says color me Bernie!

Or maybe you’re concerned about Police Brutality and the killings of
unarmed African-Americans:

 

A russian facebook page purporting to be against police Brutality
A Russian Facebook Page against police brutality

Perhaps you wondered if Black Lives Matter was a problem:

A Russian Facebook ad that blames Black Lives Matter for Policeman's death
Did you wonder if ‘Black Lives Matter’ was the problem?

Or maybe you were a ‘Woke Black’ willing to think the ‘Democrat welfare
state’ keeps Black People down:

 

A Russian Facebook page called 'Woke Blacks"
A Russian Facebook Page for ‘Woke Blacks’

If you were a white supremacist who kept his racist shit to himself, Vladdy
was there to set you free, with this:

A Russian Facebook ad for Southern Heritage
Or maybe you were a White Racist who kept it to himself.

And this:

A 2016 Facebook Ad defaming Latino Immigrants
A hypothetical Immigrant crossed our border to have a hypothetical baby that deprives a hypothetical vet of his or her benefits

And this:

A Russian Facebook ad attacking Muslim Women: ban the Buurka
A Russian Facebook ad attacking Muslims

And these:

A Russian Facebook Ad defaming Liberals
A Russian Facebook ad defaming liberals and Mexicans.
A russian Facebook ad that creates a false dichotomy between citizens and Refugees
Hypothetical Citizens before Hypothetical refugees

And if you happen to hate Trump, Vladdy has a Facebook page for you, too!

A 'Not my President anti-Trump Facebook page
A Russian anti-Trump Facebook Page.

Information is your best defense against Russian bullshit.

If you see one or more of the following 15 points in a news story, or hear them used by a public figure be suspicious:

  • A black and white division of the world into “ours” and the “alien” other;
  • Epithets that imply more than they describe;
  • Constant assertions that those supporting Putin or Trump are more numerous and united.  (The results of manipulated and flawed polls are often used to support such assertions);
  • Empty declarations that mean nothing but seem to promise or
    prove everything;
  • Playing games with cause and effect, often reversing their true order;
  • Making false accusations but not providing proof;
  • A vicious circle or tautology where the second part of an
    assertion is simply a repetition of the first;
  • Confusing the part with the whole by focusing on only one part
    of something such as liberals within the opposition;
  • Creating false dilemmas that don’t exist;
  • Careful preparation of headlines which are the only thing
    most people pay attention to;
  • Citations to experts, often false and even more often out of context;
  • Claiming all media reports when only one media outlet does;
  • Using weasel words like “so-called” or “it would appear” to give an appearance of objectivity;
  • Outright falsification; and
  • Conspiracy theories and suggestion of hidden motives.

Putin’s Hacker, Wikileaks Host Pyotr Chayanov, Hacked America’s Vote System And the DNC

from Louise Mensch

Patribotics

On October 7th the DHS and the Intelligence Community released a statement on Russian hacking of the election.

They stated that:

The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.

Let us translate: the USIC confirms that Guccifer 2 hacked the DNC…

Send in the Clown

A Russian court made it illegal to share an image of Vladimir
Putin as  a gay clown

This is the New Order as envisioned by a Russian tyrant
who wants to rule our world with lies.

Putin’s is a humorless Oligarchy where political opposition and
free speech are met with contempt and violence.

Stop homophobia and all political oppression.

Stand up for Democracy and Human Rights!

YOU’VE GOT VOTE

We are only two days away from the most important day in the history national elections of the United States of America.

There have been plenty of national elections before … in the past and during my lifetime.

But this one is ‘non-pareil‘ … there’s no one before with such high stakes.

It seems that I’m not the only one who thinks this way.

Take a look!
