(A year or so from now when this incident comes out in testimony somewhere, I'll be able to link back to this post.)
One little old lady with a laptop trying to knock down bots coming from right and left, moreso on Twitter than Facebook, but by Sat AM everywhere. Remember that "snark" tone? It started showing up in Comments on news stories back in 2013. As soon as a story goes up, there are 10-20 comments all of them sounding like right wing sound bites with a dash of Snark, I used to wonder, where are all these people coming from. They respond so fast. Now there are thousands more of them, according to M Nance, and one lol with a laptop can't stop them. I am sad now watching smart people get manipulated by them. PS I'm not insane, read Malcolm Nance
If Americans are this against outrageous Jokes, how did Bill Maher ever have a career to begin with? Those Were Bots who created this "controversy" and they are still at it, hollering at me calling me a racist in my Twitter feed for defending Maher. His Entire Career was built on making outrageous jokes, and before the bots started hollering a thousand fake-people at a time, we were fine to let him stay on HBO and do his thing late Friday nights. If Smart People are going to be this easily manipulated, forget it, we will never recover from this, We Are Now Russia / Emirate whatever.
Jokes are made using the word "nigger" on late night TV in America All The Time, but if a thousand Russian bots get outraged on Twitter, it suddenly is a reason to fire one of our most brilliant comedians
Russia's misinformation campaigns go back seventy years, they know how to reach people and turn them against each other, and I'm watching it happen again in USA now, just like last election, with half my FB friends denouncing Bill Maher for a joke no one would have even noticed if the bots had not been out in force.
Malcolm Nance said on Stephanie Miller Show last week that There are Thousands More Bots now and they are about to do "something" and I think this attack on Bill Maher is an example of what they are going to do. We All Need to stop reacting reacting reacting, bk if your Knee Jerks enough, you end up with your foot in your face. Trump just Let Them Back Into the 2 russian compounds near DC that Barack O ejected them from for doing just this, releasing Bots with false information. Be Prepared for Massive Bot Attacks and Please Stop Falling For Them!!!!!
The Bots turned Maher's comment into an issue bk they are Russian and don't know the historical reference of "house nigger" so said it was a racial slur. People Wake Up. The Bots' "word search" found nigger and went NUTS.
that "snark" tone is similar to the 1950s communist party fliers they would hand out on the street and then later at antiwar demonstrations in 1960s-early 70s. They had the same condescending tone making you feel stupid for not agreeing with them. KGB tactic still working today in USA.
45 seconds into realty TV show file I'm working on Monday AM: "I'll be back, nigger, don’t worry, I, I'm here." The person who says it is a black man talking to his father with cameras rolling. For a show on Basic Cable TV prime time. I mean... The word is in our vernacular now. The outrage last weekend was generated by Russian bots.
Another thing that bugs me from this Maher thing is the dialogue that resulted between me and a guy i've known about ten years. He snarkily used the words "coastal" as in I'm "coastal" and so don't understand people in the Midwest, which is BS. It's the result of what the bots did, they cause riffs between progressives that should never happen. I'm really insulted by that and hurt. And I think the idea of coastal vs Midwest was cooked up somewhere by a propagandist as a good way to split us up.
