A second false flag operation against Judge Roy Moore’s 2017 U.S. Senate campaign was exposed Monday morning.
“The ‘Dry Alabama’ Facebook page, illustrated with stark images of car wrecks and videos of families ruined by drink, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely,” according to the New York Times.
The report, though, said that “Dry Alabama” was not a conception of the Moore campaign or his supporters, but rather a progressive Democrat group that sought to alienate moderate Republican voters in the state.
“In fact, the Dry Alabama campaign, not previously reported, was the stealth creation of progressive Democrats who were out to defeat Mr. Moore — the second such secret effort to be unmasked,” it said.
According to the report, the project was funded by “two Virginia donors who wanted to defeat Mr. Moore.” The Times cited an anonymous member of the project who declined to name the mysterious benefactors.
But The Times did quote Matt Osborne, a progressive leftist operate who participated in the project. Osborne claimed that he believed right-wing operatives were using the same tactics, and that putting together the fake campaign to hurt Moore was necessary to stay competitive.
“I learned that if you’re doing a false-flag conservative page for a liberal donor, there are limits,” he reportedly said.
According to the report, 80 percent of the $100,00 was spent on Facebook ads.
The first false-flag against the Moore campaign was exposed in December, and involved a Democratic party attempt to smear Moore by tying to him fake “Russian bots,” adding to the hysteria by pretending that the Russians were helping Moore like they allegedly helped President Donald J. Trump in 2016, and may have violated the law.
Big League Politics reported:
An Alabama attorney spoke with Big League Politics and explained how Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) benefitted from the social media hucksters at American Engagement Technologies to defeat Judge Roy Moore in the 2017 special election, breaking Alabama law in process.
“The advertisement section of [Fair Campaign Practices] Act (FCPA) requires accurate disclosure of campaign ads, including social media,” former Alabama criminal defense attorney Johnny Davis told Big League Politics.
Davis, who now runs an international and Constitutional law consulting firm in the state, knew Moore during Moore’s tenure as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
As reported, Silicon Valley billionaire and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman donated $750,000 to American Engagement Technologies, a firm run by a former Google employee named Mickey Dickerson.
That firm distributed $100,000 of that money to a cybersecurity firm called New Knowledge, run by Jonathon Morgan. Morgan used the cash to flood Moore’s Twitter account with apparent Russian bots in an effort to connect the campaign to Russian “meddling” in the 2016 presidential election. He also created Facebook pages intended to cause strife between Republicans in Alabama and split the vote between Moore and a write-in candidate.
It appears that all of the stops were pulled out by Democrats to defeat Moore in 2017, regardless of whether they were immoral, illegal, or both.
