... Facebook is deleting "Russian influence" accounts again!
Again with the Chicken Little act:
NBC: Facebook says it found new covert campaign to spread divisive political messages
Let me get this straight: the Russians influenced America to vote for Trump in 2016, and now they are influencing them to vote for Dems in the mid-terms?
Makes me wonder if Facebook has been working for Trump all along. Think about it: they didn't act fast enough to foil Trump's election win, and now they're busy deleting accounts that favour the Dems in the mid-terms. And the Dems can't say, oh no, it's not the Russians because that would make their previous accusations against Russia seem false.
I guess you don't have to be able to think clearly to be a US Senator. Like "Climate Change" it's all a matter of belief, and if an elected official says he believes, then it must be true, eh?
Sadly, he has no choice but to blame Russia for everything -- even if the offending ads supported female and aboriginal rights -- otherwise he'd be admitting that he followed the wrong leader, that the complaints against Hillary Clinton were justified.
It all seems so complicated, but Warner's main objective is to re-win his seat in the mid-terms, and the Dems say the Ruskies are bad, so he's stickin' with it come hell or you-know.
They also bear similarity to any call-outs by activists on all sides that I've ever seen. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the purpose of all election campaigning -- since the very first politicial campaigns -- to woo the voters into opposing groups? And haven't they always been about social issues?
Okay, Google "is America failing" and see if you find any Russians there.
Oh, this is cool -- Facebook has created tools to help members "manage" their time spent there:
Facebook is concerned about your mental health. Or else it wants to lighten the load on its hosting capabilities. You decide which.
Maybe it's concern for my mental health that is causing Google to barely list my blog - and those of other longtime, popular bloggers - in its search results of late. Or maybe they worry I'm a Russian infiltrator.
I confess, I've always wanted to see Russia, perhaps due, in part, to being influenced by gorgeous movies like Dr. Zhivago, Reds, Anna Karenina. If I'm not willing to see the Russians as monsters, it may well be the fault of the media - a major source of mind-bending.
The Daily Star, for instance, tried to get something going between Brits and Russians during the World Cup (think of the headlines!), but Russia's tough guys said they were "bored with beating up the British". See? Russians are free to think for themselves! (And, so far, so am I.)
