Florida latinos swamped by wild conspiracy theories....

Well this explains why Florida has mysteriously tightened. Florida latinos are being deluged with mis information and wild conspiracy theories.

 

George Soros directs a “deep state” global conspiracy network. A Joe Biden win would put America in control of “Jews and Blacks.” The Democratic nominee has a pedophilia problem.

Wild disinformation like this is inundating Spanish-speaking residents of South Florida ahead of Election Day, clogging their WhatsApp chats, Facebook feeds and even radio airwaves at a saturation level that threatens to shape the outcome in the nation’s biggest and most closely contested swing state

 

 

The sheer volume of conspiracy theories — including QAnon — and deceptive claims are already playing a role in stunting Biden’s growth with Latino voters, who make up about 17 percent of the state’s electorate.

 

 

 

"It looks like it has to be coordinated"

 

In South Florida, veteran Latino Democratic strategist Evelyn Pérez-Verdia noticed this summer that the WhatsApp groups dedicated to updates on the pandemic and news for the Colombian and Venezuelan communities became intermittently interspersed with conspiracy theories from videos of far-right commentators or news clips from new Spanish-language sites, like Noticias 24 and PanAm Post, and the YouTube-based Informativo G24 website.

“I’ve never seen this level of disinformation, conspiracy theories and lies,” Pérez-Verdia, who is of Colombian descent, said. “It looks as if it has to be coordinated.”

 

 

 

Conspiracies revolving around Qanon too:

 

 

Conspiracy theories — especially revolving around QAnon, which posits that Trump is fighting a global cabal of satanic pedophiles — are spreading across Spanish-language radio in Miami as well, said Roberto Tejera, a political independent who has a show on Actualidad Radio. Tejera said QAnon is a constant on another station, La Poderosa, whose station management also did not respond to messages seeking comment.

“It’s not right wing. I don’t have a problem with right-wing stuff. It’s QAnon stuff. This is conspiracy theory. This goes beyond. This is new. This is a new phenomenon in Spanish speaking radio. We Cubans are not normal,” Tejera laughed, “but this is new. This is crazy. This is f---ing crazy.”

Misinformation and conspiracy theories....sounds like TRumpism!

Facebook Removes 790 QAnon Groups to Fight Conspiracy Theory

 

The social network also said it was restricting another 1,950 groups, 440 pages on Facebook and more than 10,000 accounts on Instagram related to the conspiracy group.

 

Rewind to 2016,  Facebook, Qanon, and  Cambridge Analytica.

 

Trump and the Trump Party are targeting Latinos with the help of Facebook.

 

We probably can't tell what comes from Russia and what is home grown,  they use each others stuff on a regular basis.

Perhaps WE (us amateurs) can't, but the FBI was able to give the address of the KGB building in Moscow that was posting for tRump in 2016, along with the names of a dozen KGB agents who were doing the posting.

 

tRump political appointees are no doubt making sure this sort of info doesn't get out until after the election, but the Professionals at FBI are going to TRY and get out what they find - while almost all of them tend "conservative" not a one is pro anti-Constitution Dictator, or pro Putin.

Everything that you are all saying is accurate but you are forgetting a  very important factor. and that is the idiosyncrasy of the Cubans that are in Florida
I have been trying to tell you in several of my posts. and yes, we are all Republicans because of what I have explained in other posts but,  also the Cubans that are in Miami. the majority of them were in favor of Fidel Castro for a period of many years. They like many Americans fell for a personality cult that lasted into the 1970's They started to come to the US when Castro could not provide them with the basic necessities that they used to have. And that opened their eyes.  When I say been there done that, is because I saw what happened in Cuba at that time which was in many ways similar to what is happening here with Trump.
True that the Cubans, Venezuelans and Nicaraguans in Miami have a common fear and that is Socialism.  but in regard to the Cubans, I can say that they are acting as they acted in Cuba during those years between 1958-1970
Also, as I have published the Catholic church is not helping at all. 
I don't see them changing at all. only Bloomberg with the amount of ads prob ably will convince other latinos like the Puerto Rican and others to voete for Biden. Florida will not be getting the necessary votes for Biden.

@Tom5678   Sorry, but I wouldn't be doing that at all. again, you need to understand the Latinos in so. Florida  AOC will be seen as the person that Trump is trying to portray as to who is Biden. 
If you are one of those progressives. do the Democratcd Party a favor and simply cool it for now. lol2.jpg

Just a thought, but somebody might want to begin pointing out to the Cuban refugees in Florida that the ones posting all this CT nonsense are the same KGB who kept Fidel in power for 30 years. Today a vote for Der tRumper is a vote for El Comandante.

That's an excellent idea scout.

Russia supports Trump.

Cubanos in South Florida are mostly Republicans, hate Democrats for not taking over Cuba.

It's a strange situation, but I am sure Trump wants their vote.

 

South Florida has a large Jewish senior Democrat demographic, a large gay Democrat vote and many transplanted New York liberals.

 

North Florida is lower Alabama Republican.

 

The west Coast is a lot of Christian white Republicans

 

It is the toughest state to campaign to, but critical in the election.

 

Its not any one thing like California or New York where a Democrat is sure to win.

Now Tom, you're just repeating yourself.  Come on - HOW can you distinguish between Putin and his Poodle in a situation like this??? My vote for KGB is mostly because the RNC is broke and ToadPOTUS has never risked a dime of HIS money on ANYTHING EVER. This leaves us with the sound of Rubles rustling across the airways. One would hope the Cuban-Americans would have heard enough Pravda without Tass and Tass without Pravda in Spanish to recognize it immediately.
