SG2 asked me to do another post on ADOS, and I agree.
The hustlers involved in ADOS out here pushing that they are the ones pushing for reparations.
Maybe they can run that con on you, but, I’ve been Black in America longer than three days. I just didn’t hear of reparations in 2016.
I first heard about reparations through former Chicago Alderman Dorothy Tillman. Tillman has been involved with reparations for forever. Considering that she last served in the Chicago City Council in 2007, that’s been over 11 years ago. Tillman was involved in the educational part of reparations. She and others spent their time providing an education about the economical foundation of slavery in this country. Time after time, Tillman, and those working with her in the reparations movement, were bringing the receipts – LITERALLY -of how there isn’t an industry in this country that didn’t have, as its underpinning, slavery. In industries that you wouldn’t have thought about it.
So, when these ADOS folks come forth, posturing as if they’re actually been leading the way…whatever.
I wrote before on them, and told you that you need to do your research.
The research will lead you to one of two places:
1. They are from the 2016 camp of
“ there’s no difference between Hillary and Trump”
“ there’s no difference between the parties”
“ you need to get hip and woke to the evils of the two party system “
“ really, the only way to truly go in 2016, is to either vote 3rd Party, or NOT VOTE AT ALL”
Dollars to donuts, research these people – this is who they are. And, they are as responsible for saddling this country with Dolt45 as any Dolt45 deplorable.
2. They are bots, Russian or otherwise, attempting to use Social Media, to amplify and sow discord in the Black community for the 2020 election.
In case you don’t understand what I’m talking about here’s an article for reference:
Report: Russians Targeted Black Americans in Social Media Campaigns to Disrupt 2016 Election
Of particular interest to black people is a note in the New Knowledge report that says: “The IRA created an expansive cross-platform media mirage targeting the Black community, which shared and cross-promoted authentic Black media to create an immersive influence ecosystem.”
The New Knowledge report also says that Russians posted more than 1,000 YouTube videos for their disinformation campaign. Their efforts on Instagram generated more than twice the “engagement” among users than either Facebook or Twitter. “Engagement” refers to how often people interacted with a post—either by liking, sharing or commenting—rather than just seeing it on their screens.
According to the Times, the Internet Research Agency is owned by Yevgeny V. Prigozhin, a Russian businessman said to be a close ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Prigozhin was one of the 13 people indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller in February of this year as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The Internet Research Agency devoted a lot of time and effort toward black Americans according to the New Knowledge report. A collection of their memes and messages can be seen here as proof of that.
The report says “The most prolific I.R.A. efforts on Facebook and Instagram specifically targeted black American communities and appear to have been focused on developing black audiences and recruiting black Americans as assets.”
The agency reportedly used Gmail accounts with American-sounding names to recruit and sometimes pay unwitting American activists of all races, but there was a disproportionate focus on the pursuit of black Americans according to the report.
From the Times:
Of 81 Facebook pages created by the Internet Research Agency in the Senate’s data, 30 targeted African-American audiences, amassing 1.2 million followers, the report finds. By comparison, 25 pages targeted the political right and drew 1.4 million followers. Just seven pages focused on the political left, drawing 689,045 followers.
While the right-wing pages promoted Mr. Trump’s candidacy, the left-wing pages scorned Mrs. Clinton while promoting Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate. The voter suppression effort was focused particularly on Sanders supporters and African-Americans, urging them to shun Mrs. Clinton in the general election and either vote for Ms. Stein or stay home.
As the Times notes, it’s hard to say whether those efforts had any significant impact, but the fact remains that black voter turnout for a presidential election was down for the first time in 20 years in 2016.
