The Propagandaring Trolls

It was only a matter of time before someone figured out how to turn the information age into a nuclear bomb for propaganda. It's just too easy to create shiny objects for the ignorant.

Unfortunately this is our new world. We all have to prepare to fight. Cultivate you and yours to stand up and fight these things any time they come out into the light. Know how and what to respond with before they even have a chance to type.

Here is an example of the same Russian troll and his bot army and how they used lies to spread fear in different countries after creating racial tensions at Mizzou by saying the Kkk was marching with police beating up black people---

@Fanfan1911 account later changed its display name from Jermaine to “FanFan,” and the profile photo of a black man was changed to the image of a German iron cross.

“The next few months, FanFan’s tweets were all in German and consisted of spreading rumors about Syrian refugees,” Prier wrote.

The same account started tweeting in English by spring 2016 and promoted right-wing U.S. news sites such as Breitbart, and FanFan eventually became “Deplorable Lucy” and backed Donald Trump.

1. Just a thought...

...those digital troll armies have to have a physical anchoring point for their controllers to work in....


...I'm sorry Mr. Putin*, but we know NOTHING about that non-descript warehouse in ***** that just exploded. You know, the one with all the power and internet cables going into the facility. Nothing. Perhaps they had a slight electrical problem?

2. If I remember right

I heard a lot of the trolls work out of a place a few blocks from the kremlin. I'm sure we can pay some poor Soviet sap to go burn it down
