OK, here's some election sh*t going on.

I just tried to post something on FB to a Biden/Harris group I've been in since the official nomination. It's suddenly gone and when I searched my activity there are a whole bunch of supposed posts and "likes" from me to a group called "Dems for Trump."

When I searched for that group, it doesn't exist.

The Biden group was a large group, and now that page is completely gone and only small Biden groups are left on FB.

What a crock!!

4. What was the exact name of the group? I can try doing a search

in case, for some reason, the group blocked its members.

8. The group was Biden/Harris 2020.

My posting history was disappeared from that, and now I'm finding posting history that says I posted and liked posts in Dems for Trump. When I click on those notifications, they don't open, and when I search for Dems for Trump, it doesn't come up.

12. I did just report it....

Then I found a new Biden-Harris 2020 group, and they were all talking about the original group having been hacked and taken down.

Here's the dialog:

THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME JOIN! My last Biden/Harris group just Turned into a Dems For Trump group! 🙄🙄🙄

Michelle DeWitt Smith
the members posting were all new members within an hour and many had foreign names. Their profile pics were all clowns and celebrities not real people. Definitely planned by many!!

Stephen Williams
By Russians it seems. The original group's Admin was kicked, and one of the new ones stated in Russian that it had been assimilated, and there was nothing we could do.

And it seems Ethan James, who reacted to my post, is another Russian bot.

Anthony Watson I realized I was also a member last night. I didnít join that group n couldnít figure out what happened. Which group was hacked? I belong to several.

Anthony Watson
Lisa Macknis It was just called Biden-Harris 2020

Brad Jensen
Yep me too. It was clearly a Russian job. They were all fake names that didn't sound quite right, neither did their translations and they even failed to translate some of their comments from the original Russian
∑ 3h
Lisa Macknis
Anthony Watson Same as this page? There were so many horrible comments in my notifications, I wondered what happened to my friends! When I saw Dems for Trump I realized I was on the wrong page. but still wondered how I became a member. I was on fb when it happened. It popped up and claimed I was a member, I was like oh no I'm not!!

Actually the Russian Trolls are infiltrating legitimate sites.....and you should report their comments to a site administrator............I always do.

Michael Erskine they took over as administrator. The page founder had been kicked out. I'm thinking Russian Military.

Same. I wonder how many new members are from that group.
Though some believe we were trolled from the very beginning.

It's unfortunate. I run the group the progressive resistance, and it's been hacked more than once. I've got it locked down like fort knox now

Our previous group that was hacked has been taken down

Tina Thompson Simkins
That answers my question. I'm sad it was taken over but glad it was taken down if it couldn't be restored.

Tina Thompson Simkins
I was in that group, too. After I few hours I gave up and left the group. I didn't want to see that garbage popping up in my timeline. I am curious, though, did they ever get control of that group again? I tried to report it to facebook but there wasn't the right option available for what happened to that group. Sad... 🙁

Michelle DeWitt Smith
Tina Thompson Simkins I am wondering the same.

Tina Thompson Simkins
Michelle DeWitt Smith I just read another member's comment and he said that the group was taken down. Just as well I guess if it couldn't be restored.

Maricela Gloria
I'm from that group too. Some of the admins were being removed. I saw the listing going down and that's when it clicked that they were hacked and I left
∑ 1h
Dalton Griffith
That was a mess. I think a Russian managed to hack an admin account and kick the other admins. I believe Facebook deleted the group. It is unfortunate. We had a lot of members in there.
