Russian trolls organized a protest and a counterprotest in the same place at the same time in May 2016, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Richard Burr, said on Wednesday.

Roseanne Barr and Michael McFaul argued with her on Twitter. BuzzFeed and The New York Times cited her tweets. But Jenna Abrams was the fictional creation of a Russian troll farm.

Abrams, who at one point boasted nearly 70,000 Twitter followers, was featured in articles written by Bustle, U.S. News and World Report, USA Today, several local Fox affiliates, InfoWars, BET, Yahoo Sports, Sky News, IJR, Breitbart, The Washington Post, Mashable, New York Daily News, Quartz, Dallas News, France24, HuffPost, The Daily Caller, The Telegraph, CNN, the BBC, Gizmodo, The Independent, The Daily Dot, The Observer, Business Insider, The National Post, Refinery29, The Times of India, BuzzFeed, The Daily Mail, The New York Times, and, of course, Russia Today and Sputnik.

in the 1960's, j edgar hoover and the FBI tried floating theories that MLK, and the Civil Rights movement were just a Russian plot (among other dirty tricks to undermine the movement).

same thing here. they've done this more recently to BLM and others

what better way to undermine protest movements you don't like, or avoid criticism? "BLM has no legit gripe, it's just a Russian plot"

The Russians are probably interfering in our elections and politics, just like we do to EVERY OTHER FUCKING COUNTRY, but I don't give a shit because 1) our own government fucks us over worse than Russia ever could, and 2) we can't vote for or against Russia anyway, so it's a moot point.

If you show up to a protest started by a Russian troll, you're kind of a cuck.
