  • Antifa/blm are no doubt kremlin linked, just as the panthers and the anti-Vietnam movements were in the 60’s.

    Putler wanted Americans at each other’s throats and he’s done a great job; far more effective than in the 60’s.
    The Dems will give votes to millions of third world illegals, as well as give them free health care. Which will send America into the Venezuela direction.
    On the other hand, the GOP under Trumpkov will still refuse to confront putler and his friends in the alt-right will continue to glorify the tiny poisoner.

    • I’m close to saying RuSSia won the new cold war, but since Muscovy is a complete shithole – i would say they inflicted severe damage on us, but still Muscovy is a loser.

  • A totally ridiculous assertion by any stretch of the imagination. Unless one really wants to say that all the hundreds of millions spent by all campaigns means nothing when 100K worth of “Russian” Facebook ads enter the fray. How stupid does that sound? Are Americans so gullible that one could be on their way to vote for Hillary until they read a FB ad by a “Russian” and they suddenly decide to vote for the other party or vice versa?

    What does “to sow political discord “ actually mean in this context ? Do they mean before these “Russian ads”, the American political establishment was a unified front singing Kumba Ya at Each election cycles ???
    Give me a break.!!!

    • The point is, Russia actively engaged in American politics when they denied doing it. Plus, they lied and spread disinformation. Disinformation is evil when anyone does it and its especially diabolical when a KGB fascist dictator does it. Period. Also, it is A LOT more than a hundred thousand when you include paying for the RTroll army at 55 Savushkina and the salaries at RT, Sputnik, and the other Putin-run disinformation orifices.

      • Have you listened to the liberal media of late ? Yeah, they are the bastions of honest reporting right ?? The recent settlements by the likes of CNN and Wapo for a disinformation campaign against Nick Sandmann is not a symptom of any issues within literal media around the globe.

        It’s only Russia that ever engages in so called disinformation. Every other entity engages in scrupulous ly honest reporting. Right !!!!
        Quit making excuses and deal with the internal political issues. What next, Russia paid the police officer who killed George Floyd in cold blood, so as to sow racial discord ????

        • Try reading my post again. I said misinformation is evil when anyone does it. And it is especially evil when someone does it and encourages their state-run propaganda factories to do it. Just go to Russia Today and try to find news about Russia. Give me a break.

          • I could say the same thing about this Ukraine today site. 90 % of the articles are about Russia. Maybe it should be called RT lite

            My point still stands though. Tell me one country that isn’t engaged in some type of espionage or subterfuge to get the upper hand. USA even does it to its allies. Remember Angela Merkel’s iPhone which was bugged by the Obama admin.

            So instead of the USA crying about a country that it considers a rival, engaging in “misinformation “ maybe it should strengthen its guard against that. If Russia is a rival, then it has no desire to work in tandem with the USA. Right. So improve the defences against this misinformation and deal with it that way.

            You can’t expect a country that you say is a Rival to wish you well.

              It is mafia land, after all, that has started and is waging a WAR in Ukraine, in case you’ve been asleep for the past 6 years. It is also mafia land that has STOLEN a part of Ukraine’s territory, in case you’ve been in a coma for the past six years. Mafia land is also responsible for massive subterfuge in the country, has shot down a civilian airliner and much more. Thus, OF COURSE, mafia land is the number one topic in this country and on this site. If you don’t like it, then that’s too bad.

              • That’s a great pivot. But the article isn’t about Alleged Russian actions in Ukraine it it ??? It’s about alleged Disinformation in the USA. The snowflakes out there are petrified because of Russian adverts. They need their safe spaces.
                PS; fancy coming round for putler onanist sessions? Every Friday, my place. Trailer 999, Shit Street, Palookaville.

                  And what of it? It is still interesting to know how mafia land’s crime syndicate government is actively spreading gross misinformation and trying to manipulate minorities to sow discontent in other countries. It is a rogue nation and paid Ruskie trolls like you are its whores. Your attempt at ridiculing our support for Ukraine and the US falls on deaf ears and it will only strengthen our will to combat you.
                  You can have your round of circle-jerking but only with your fellow troll whores.

                    It’s a very weak and childish argument to make. Just because someone doesn’t share your opinion it means they are being paid to have it. Straight out of the liberal playbook. Maybe Americans need to go to school instead of protesting endlessly if they are so gullible to fall for this misinformation you talk about.
                    When Colin Powell held up a test tube of washing powder in the UN and claimed Saddam had deadly biological weapons , was that misinformation.
                    When Rumsfeld said Saddams WMDs where North, south, east, west of Tikrit, was that misinformation ?
                    When the US navy claimed they had been attacked in the gulf on Tonken, to help push the US further into the Vietnam war, was that misinformation.
                    When the original settlers signed agreements with the native Indians only to massacre them, was that misinformation. Seems to me that Russian has meant from the masters of misinformation.

                      I have dealt with countless Ruskie trolls since 2014 in numerous sites and thus I can smell one right through the wires of the www. You, little guy, are one as certainly as Putin is a dwarf and a criminal.

      What does ” sow political discord ” mean in this context ?
      I will help you find the truth that you claim to seek.The Kremlin doesn’t have a preference for particular candidates. But is generally engaged in “information confrontation” aimed at blurring fact from fiction, eroding American confidence in democratic institutions and driving wedges into society’s fracture lines.

      The primary objective is not to create a particular version of the truth but rather to cloud the truth and erode our ability to find it, creating a sentiment that no narrative or news source can be trusted at all.
