Turns out Russian trolls spent $4700 on Google ads :lmao: Some were Pro Trump, some Pro Hillary, some neither. They were just to steal information like all ads are. The game is up.

A fake pro-Hillary ad can be just as effective as a real Trump ad. To the right audience. Russia paid for African-American self defense classes. Whatever accentuated our differences helped them.

:lol:

Where's the evidence? The Democrats play identity politics non stop which is very divisive by nature.

Tons of US election propaganda comes out of European countries including Russia. I've seen tons of it from outside countries right here on WP.

The people who believe this stuff are so stupid as to be ignorant of basic probability. An event as major as the US election will have people talking vociferously EVERYWHERE in the world and, given that a couple percent of the world's population lives in Russia, it would be inconceivably improbable that none of these people would come from there. This is not evidence of any conspiracy.

I'm not saying that there wasn't a conspiracy, only if there was, no evidence of it has yet been presented to the public save for that which can be debunked by a twelve year old with moderate mathematical talents. The claims would seem to be on the one hand an attempt to exploit the remnants of Cold War Russophobia on the part of the middle aged, and the simple gullibility and intellectual ineptitude or dishonesty of the young on the other.

It's funny how these same people never criticise Chinese interference in the western political process. We need Chinese slave labour, you see.

It seems too many people let media sensationalism do their thinking for them.
