Report: Democrats Who Attended Anti-Trump Protests Were Working For Russia
A few days after the election last November, thousands of brainless Democrats gathered for a rally in New York to protest Donald Trump.
The Guardian reported on the size of the Nov. 12 rally at the time:
More than 10,000 people indicated on Facebook that they would attend a noon march from Union Square to Trump Tower, the future president’s home and corporate headquarters.
As marchers mustered at East 17th Street and Broadway, organizers estimated the turnout at 2,000. As the march began to move, however, the true figure seemed closer to the promised 10,000.
Chanting “Not my president!”, the crowd set off up Fifth Avenue under heavy police escort. A call-and-response developed, protesters chanting: “Whose streets? Our streets!”…
Denise Mustafa, a video editor holding a sign that read “Adolf Trump”, said: “I want Donald Trump to know democracy is not going to be pushed aside. I want him to know we’re educated about what’s going on. This is a way to vent our anger in a healthy way and to let people know it’s not hopeless.”
Little did these Democrats know they were marching on behalf of Russia. Yes, Russia. So not only were the Clinton campaign and the DNC colluding with Russians, now everyday Democrats were helping their borscht-eating counterparts in Moscow.
The Hill reports that this particular protest was organized on Facebook by a Russian group calling itself BlackMattersUS, which many people mistakenly assumed was some kind of Black Lives Matter offshoot:
The demonstration in New York City, which took place a few days after the election, appears to be the largest and most successful known effort to date pulled off by Russian-linked groups intent on using social media platforms to influence American politics.
Sixteen thousand Facebook users said that they planned to attend a Trump protest on Nov. 12, 2016, organized by the Facebook page for BlackMattersUS, a Russian-linked group that sought to capitalize on racial tensions between black and white Americans. The event was shared with 61,000 users…
The BlackMatters organizing group was connected to the Internet Research Agency, a Russian “troll farm” with ties to the Kremlin, according to a recent investigation by the Russian Magazine RBC. Facebook has identified the Internet Research Agency as the group responsible for purchasing 3,000 political ads on Facebook’s platform and operating 470 accounts that appear to have attempted to influence the perspectives of Americans during the 2016 elections.
While this wasn’t the largest event organized by the group but it was not the only such rally where Democrats willingly helped Russia.
In all, the group organized about ten events, including several before the election. The group also spent months doing interviews with well-known activists. :A Google translation of an RBC story
BlackMattersUS…managed to collect a whole portfolio of interviews with famous fighters for the rights of blacks. In addition to White, the community representatives talked with the legendary member of the Black Panthers movement Erica Huggins, the mother of the black teenager Ramarli Graham, killed by police in New York, the professor of Columbia University and the godfather rapper Tupac Shakur Jamal Joseph, as well as Ramone Africa, a member of the Philadelphia movement of black MOVE , one of the few survivors of the unprecedented local police raid in 1985…
One has to love the irony in all of this. As Democrats scream RUSSIA about President Trump, as it turns out, THEY were the unwitting dupes working on behalf of Vladimir Putin.
Ask yourself honestly though… Given the stupidity that Democrats have embraced as fact that has nothing to do with reality, is it any surprise that they would willingly or unwittingly work for the Russians?
Not in the least.
