The redacted report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller was released this morning, and it reveals the country ran dozens of social media pages purporting to be American citizens, including several supporting Black Lives Matter.
It appears the at least one of the goals of the Russia Federation’s meddling in the United States was to simply tear apart any type of social cohesion in the United States. In addition to cyber efforts aimed at supporting then-candidate Donald J. Trump in 2015 and 2016, the Russians also backed Sen. Bernie Sanders, and strangely enough, Black Lives Matter.
Russia’s Internet Research Agency, or IRA, ran several Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook pages and groups aimed at pushing Black Lives Matter messaging. Some of these were called “Black Matters”, “Blacktivist”, “Don’t Shoot US”, “Black Fist” and a self-titled grass roots group called “Black Matters US”.
While these groups were created by the IRA, they recruited American citizens to assist in creating content and running the operations. While portions of the Mueller report have been redacted to protect the privacy of American citizens, it appears the IRA attempted to contact prominent members of Black Lives Matter within the United States to gain their support on social media. This appears to have been unsuccessful.
However, at one point, the IRA-created “Black Fist” entity hired a “self defense instructor” in New York to offer classes sponsored by the social media presence. The purported goal of these classes was to “teach African-Americans to protect themselves when contacted by law enforcement.”
In addition to the various Black Lives Matter presences on social media, and those supporting President Trump and Sanders, the IRA sponsored several social media outlets claiming to be part of America’s LGBTQ and Muslim communities. These included “LGBT United” and “United Muslims of America”.
This information seems to suggest one of Russia’s primary goals in its meddling in the United States was to play all sides to destroy the already decaying social cohesion within the country.
Dave Rubin Berated on Social Media for Claiming ‘Free Markets’ Will Stop Big Tech Tyranny
Nobody is buying what Rubin’s selling anymore.
Left-libertarian pundit Dave Rubin is getting hammered on social media by conservatives offended by his notion that the “free market” will somehow end Big Tech tyranny without government intervention.
Rubin disagreed with President Trump’s call for action to reign in Big Tech as they commit Orwellian censorship and attempt to meddle in electoral politics.
Conservatives must fight the impulse to regulate big tech. Competition, free markets and human ingenuity are the answer. Not taking one big problem and combining it with another big problem.
— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) May 27, 2020
Rubin’s tweet caused many people to point out how his ideology is a failure and does nothing to actually preserve freedom of speech in any tangible sense.
“Man Dave…seems like years of gatekeeping and sucking up to Susan at YouTube has made the entire internet hate your guts,” wrote Twitter user @terrorsperg.
“How long until big tech controls every aspect of our life? We going to just let them destroy us in the name of “free markets?” There is a serious discussion to be had here about whether they are publisher or platform,” twitter user @MadManCris49 wrote.
“Conservatives are going to be “noble losers” until the end of time unless they actually start fighting fire with fire,” wrote Twitter user @tdschwinn.
“There is no Free Market is Social Media anymore. It’s a dictatorship that uses Repressive Tolerance to justify telling only one narrative,” wrote user @jamft in a tweet. “Twitter is no longer a platform, it has become a publisher and a gatekeeper.”
“This is not regulating them. This is taking away monetary and legal privilege they receive by claiming to be merely a “public platform.” They, if indeed they ever were, have ceased to be such and should lose that privilege,” wrote Twitter user @ChiefScribe.
“Competition doesn’t exist. Competitors can’t even get a mobile app because Apple and Google won’t allow it. Its a monopoly,” Twitter user @steph93065 wrote in another response.
Rubin is acting like his so-called competitor to Twitter, Locals.com, is free market competition that will reign in the social media giants without government interference.
However, banished journalist and Congressional candidate Laura Loomer pointed out that Rubin’s platform subscribes to all of the same rules as the tech giants and does not really promote freedom of speech.
“I find it really bizarre how Dave Rubin is going around telling people that his new social media site is anti censorship when it’s been designed to keep deplatformed people off and also utilizes the same content moderation tools as Twitter,” she wrote in a Telegram post.
“How do you have a social media site created to supposedly combat censorship and then not invite anyone who has actually been deplatformed onto the site? How can you claim to not have “behind the scenes censorship” when you let people “control who can and can’t post”?” Loomer asked.
Loomer urges patriots who oppose Big Tech censorship to join Parler, a social media entity that refuses to bow to Big Tech’s arbitrary rules and allows unpersoned individuals to speak freely on their platform.
“It is very dishonest for this new site to be advertised as a solution to censorship,” Loomer wrote of Rubin’s social media scam site. “I believe that’s what you call false advertising.”
Rubin’s half-baked weak libertarianism is not selling like it did several years ago. The homosexual former leftist “Young Turks” collaborator is showing signs that he may be controlled opposition for the globalist establishment.
