I don't want to know how many of them would remain loyal after finding this out.


if, for our sampling, we use Trump voters here that still support Trump, non of them have left her lol

So it begins.

No surprise - those guys always were un-American...

 

 


During the elections lot of Hillary haters quotes were traced back to RT ( russia times ) and sputnik..and were wholeheatedly embraced. Im the one that traced them, and sometimes they just posted te articles.

 


I am amazed at the number of posters here and people I know in my town who have fallen for fake Russian  Facebook postings, along with other fake news by Breitbart, daily Caller, etc. and then there is Trump shutting out the major news networks. It's like a page out of Hitler's time.

Afisher-Won’t say this is true with no proof/I’ll leave that up to Trump and his ridiculous supporters – – but, I heard the other day that a large number of so-called Trump supporters were a boys– – not just this one who had the large following.

Sad on one hand, but a real relief, for IF it is true, that means that my belief in the intelligence of the American people is somewhat restored in that these followers may not be real.

Good point and info, afish.  It's sad how many BS POV we've seen posted here from those mostly on the right that have been revealed as Russian disinformation.  And of course, no one has the guts to admit it. A bunch of cowards....

 

Thanks for this interesting topic, A.P.

Hilariously, one of the few popular RW bloggers appears to be a bot.  Jenna Abrams, the freewheeling American blogger who believed in a return to segregation and said that many of America’s problems stemmed from PC culture run amok, did not exist.   

 

Her account was the creation of employees at the Internet Research Agency, or the Russian government-funded “troll farm,” in St. Petersburg.

 

She was followed by 70K people in the US.       It should not surprise me to observe how gullible people are, but it does.    Don't people ever look at the site or investigate who is talking ....apparently not.
