Anybody think that the faked video of Emma Gonzales ripping up the Constitution was made in Russia

and then sent to the NRA or some right wing media outlet?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2018/03/25/a-fake-photo-of-emma-gonzalez-went-viral-on-the-far-right-where-parkland-teens-are-villains/?utm_term=.d120d3776b80

<Gab, the Twitter-like social network that is a popular refuge for the alt-right, tweeted the animation on Saturday to more than 100,000 followers, then hours later asserted it was “satire.” It racked up more than 1,200 retweets. The still images, looking more sophisticated than the glitchy animation, went further, appearing to be taken as legitimate by some conservative-minded Twitter users.>

1. Probably, either way it is exactly what we would expect from trumpers, GOP, etc.

The GOP, rump supporters are now indistinguishable from the KGB operatives as they all do the same things.

4. Just like the Russian trolls and bots pushed the NFL player kneeling meme

Divide and conquer .... right out of the KGB/FSP/Putin playbook

Trump even tweeted a link to a Russian server that was hosting something like
"Stand for the Flag" or "Stand for the Troops."

3. I saw the original so when I saw the photoshopped version I knew it was satire.


But once these things move out of context, they can seem real, inflame, and divide.


Could be a troll operation, though.

8. And many of the mouth breathing gun humpers will base their thinking around ...

.... that "little lesbian tore up the constitution" mental picture. Just like the meme
that Hillary had people murdered to cover up Bill's cocaine smuggling operation in
Arkansas or that President Obama was going to smuggle in Hamas fighters into
America in order to take away the people's guns and then get a 3rd term. BTW I have
heard both of those "ideas" told to me by sober middle to upper class college educated
white people. One man and one woman.

9. You are preaching to the choir

This is the precise reason I'm fed up to the teeth with Facebook. I see no reason to even have a profile anymore. Tired of the rw bullshit
