    "Sources tell CNN that a Kremlin-backed group known as the “Internet Research Agency” used geographically targeted advertising to fuel political discord in various parts of the US as tensions rose between the black community and police last year.

    At least one of the roughly 3,000 ads that the agency bought during the election promoted Black Lives Matter specifically, the outlet reports."

    I wonder who could win with this? And for you idiots that love to post tweets and fake news about BLM. Think twice, it might be a russian troll.

    Unlike the far right, liberals have been voiceful in their recognition that Russia spreads propaganda made to look like it would be in their favor. Only the far right seem to fall for it and continue to deny Russian involvement when it's to their detriment.

    The movement has its merits when it isn't hijacked or impersonated by Russian ops

    What you do as an information compiler and condenser is sort the wheat from the chaff and present the essence. When exposed to truth, people are in a much better position to figure out for themselves what is really goin on.

    It is like rain on a dry desert.

    I believe it.
    Just wayy too many dumb cases brouggt to the forefront of the movement... When cases like Tamir's got lost in the sauce.

    That is the only trial where there should have been any kind of protest, and maybe sandra blands... That was a weird case...

    The only movement besides the one in your pants that is worth while is the Truth Movement.

    Remember that just about everything you have been taught and ordered to believe is a lie and that Truth is much stranger than fiction. That is one way to know when you are not being lied to directly to your face.

    Give WoodwardTV a try. It is part of the order of Melchizedek. Lots of truth to be found there.

    It is a good first step to take.

    Yeah let's just deflect and pretend all the hundred of threads about "BLM thugs" protests on the internet were based on actual Russian activities.

    The Russians push identity politics and racial grievance rhetoric in an attempt to further polarize the American (and probably Western as a whole) population, sowing discord and destabilizing the country. They push it from all angles. Here's another example of them pushing the "hey people of colour, you need to be scared of those evil white people":

    http://money.cnn.com/2017/10/18/media/black-fist-russia-self-defense-classes/index.html

    What I find interesting is that so many colleges and universities push the exact same rhetoric, as well as media outlets. They push this rhetoric with much more efficiency than Russian trolls ever could. The result is the same, the polarization and breakdown of discourse, leading to destabilization. But is the motive the same? Something to think about. Of course there are also plenty of right-wing media outlets that push the same xenophobic/racist type of narrative that Russian trolls will also spread. It's already lead to a bad situation and it's getting worse.
