According to a report by Natalie Winters, Twitter announced that China used approximately 200,000 fake accounts to meddle in American politics.
These numbers are in stark contrast to Russia, which had less than 1,200 accounts. Because Russia is the Left’s new boogieman, China’s overwhelming presence in American internal affairs is overlooked.
This news was published on June 11, 2020 after a revealing Mediaite report illuminated the extent that fake accounts were involved on Twitter.
Twitter published the information in a report titled, “Disclosing networks of state-linked information operations we’ve removed.”
The report details how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) used two methods of targeting Twitter users through the use of Chinese propaganda, which Winters detailed:
- 23,750 accounts that comprise the core of the network, e.g. the highly engaged core network;
- Approximately 150,000 accounts that were designed to boost this content, e.g. the amplifiers. Based on feedback from researchers on our prior disclosures that we need to better refine the disclosure process to enable efficient investigation of the core activity, we have not included the 150,000 amplifier accounts in the public archive.
Twitter highlighted how these pro-Chinese accounts were “involved in a range of manipulative and coordinated activities” and “spreading geopolitical narratives favorable to the Communist Party of China (CCP), while continuing to push deceptive narratives about the political dynamics in Hong Kong.”
Witners called attention to how these actions followed the spirit of a decree that Xi Jinping issued in 2016 which called for robust propaganda efforts “wherever the readers are, wherever the viewers are.”
The report highlighted how Russia’s activities were confined to “1,152 accounts and associated media” involved in “promoting the United Russia party and attacking political dissidents.”
It’s abundantly clear that China poses a larger threat to the U.S. than Russia. The Cold War is over, and while China has reformed a bit, it still has aspirations of dominating the globe at America’s expense.
In a saner political climate, the U.S. would be using realpolitik to strategically align itself with Russia as a means of checking Chinese influence. Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world thanks to the neoliberal and neoconservative consensus that dominates D.C.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
