Dems in Alabama have been exposed for their social media tactics lifted straight from the Russian playbook. PJ Media reports:
One might think that liberals, still desperately clinging to the absurd notion that Russia delivered the 2016 election to Donald Trump, would be hell-bent on preventing the alleged tactics being used to “influence” an election—any election—again. Oh, but you’d be wrong, so very wrong. Yesterday, the New York Times published a story detailing how left-wing tech experts “decided to try out similarly deceptive tactics in the fiercely contested Alabama Senate race.”
“The secret project, carried out on Facebook and Twitter, was likely too small to have a significant effect on the race, in which the Democratic candidate it was designed to help, Doug Jones, edged out the Republican, Roy S. Moore. But it was a sign that American political operatives of both parties have paid close attention to the Russian methods, which some fear may come to taint elections in the United States.”
Funny how the New York Times goes out of its way to say the project “was likely too small to have a significant effect on the race,” yet Russia spending a mere $100,000 in Facebook political ads during an election where $6.8 billion was spent is, according to anti-Trumpers, enough to have swayed the election to Donald Trump, courtesy of Vladimir Putin.
So, what exactly did these left-wing techies do?
Isn’t this ironic?
