CNN aired an amazing piece this morning where they traced down people who were caught up and quoted or copied social media opinions on their own postings. One man took instructions from the web to construct a cage for his pick up truck symbolic of a jail cell to lock up Hilary.

The amazing thing is these people refused to believe they were unwitting Russian agents. One woman called the suggestion an example of CNN fake news.

Of course what the Russians did was nothing new. To get a grasp about how easy (and profitable) engineering public opinion can be; pick up this month' Atlantic magazine that features a shocking expose of Paul Manafort.

So, let me get this straight.... CNN is basically tracking down & harassing private citizens @ their homes so they can be smeared on their channel now????????? Modern day McCarthyism at it's finest...

 

The #TwitterLockOut that took place last night is another example of the neocon/neolib establishment using #Russiagate to silence opposition to corrupt government. I'm with the angry righties on this one...

 

It always starts like this with the establishment claiming to be doing it for our own good just like when they started violating our civil liberties/spying on us in the Bush years, shitting on our rights in the name of security & freedom.

Or follow this forum for a few years. (Or decades...)
