Billionaire Tom Steyer to fund Troll army to Peddle Russia, Russia, and help shut down Dissenting Voices
Billionaire Tom Steyer has spent more than $20 million on a series of television ads attacking President Donald Trump and calling for his impeachment. However, an interview with Politico revealed that Steyer is also building his own digital army that can combat the Russian bots that helped manipulate social media to promote Trump-approved messages.
Steyer will allocate another $20M to build and support a troll army, including programmed bots, to push the Russia did “It” (insert your favorite), downvote social media posts that attempt to tell the truth, and engage with posters and commentators who are trying to refute the nonsense about “interfering”, “colluding”, “hacking” by the big bad bear.
While Democratic Party officials have been dismissive of Steyer and called his investment nothing more than a “vanity project,” nearly 4 million people have signed his petition to impeach, and his goal was only 5 million. With a new ad beginning Christmas Day, Steyer says he has built an army he hopes can be a collective voice to ensure the will of the American people is followed.
“That’s how you build a grassroots operations for a presidential campaign,” GOP consultant Mike Madrid told Politico. “And if you are that guy who started this, that’s certainly a leg up in organizing a 50-state strategy. That’s what he’s building, and it’s probably second only to Bernie Sanders’ list, and may be eclipsing it. Every election cycle has its own dynamics, and whoever is tapping into the sentiments of their own base usually has an advantage.”
He noted that there’s an untapped energy among anti-Trump activists that are seeking something in which they can invest their energy. Steyer has given them that something. That “something” — which is breaking digital records, according to experts.
“We have tapped into something much larger than we thought,” said Steyer.
“I have just engaged in a few back and forths (just for fun. – that’s my excuse) with one of those commissioned types. Probably not the most recent cohort, and certainly not one of the more capable and/or informed ones, to judge by the shallow, low level MSM-derived pearls of “wisdom” strewn about.
I noticed the down votes on all the good comments that try to counter the MSM lies peddled by officially sanctioned shills (including on propaganda outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, PBS, etc) on a recent post by redditor who could apparently read and understand what really went down in the Seth Rich case.
I also noticed that there is an unusually large troll army dedicated to this one sub. The word has probably gone out to brigade any post or comment that has anything to do with Russia, RT, etc. I wonder whether anyone could tell me what the going price is? me thinks I could do quite well in this line of job (well, my rate may be a bit on the high side. Lawyer rates, you know….but who knows – if they are desperate enough, may be, may be?).”
VintageOG: It seems like everyone immediately forgot about CTR and JTRIG after the election
oldMiseryGuts: I’ve just had a read around the interwebs and nowhere says that he is paying people to argue on the internet like you insinuated.
He got people to sign a petition to impeach trump and got 4 million signatures. He can now use those signatures to reach out to people to organise a grass roots political movement.
It has nothing to do with Russia
life_is_cheap: why are so many people obsessed with discrediting the Russia Investigation? Just let it play out so everyone can move on. Paid goons are infiltrating here to supress it’s legitimacy.
GirlsGetGoats: Anyone else notice the sudden giant uptick in posts attacking the Trump/Russia conspiracy? A couple from mods here no less.
There is no conspiracy on this sub that gets this treatment.
It’s almost like some people are worried.
zenmasterzen3: My thread got downvoted to 0 points:
Russia hysteria confirmed: comedians tell US ambassador to UN Nikki Jihad-Haley that Russia interfered with elections of a bogus country – Binomo, and she bought it! She says we’re “right on top of the situation”! Who knows, maybe Russia sank Atlantis? from conspiracy
But a similar thread not on Russiagate being fake from the same source, submitted same time has 11 points.
Either my title triggered people or there are shills/bots pushing the russia thing.
How did OP get his 26 points thread (71% upvoted)? Maybe The_Donald shills can counteract the sharia blue ones …
I think RES tags might be used by shills/brigaders somehow.
oldMiseryGuts: How do you know you’ve just conversed with “one of those comissioned types”?
