    I mean I am gathering from you that you think all the negative against those groups is propaganda videos and didn’t really happen.

    Yeah, that is not what anyone is claiming. The roll the Internet Research Agency played was stoking racial divisions to make the black lives movement appear to be more militant and provocative. Whether that actually provoked riots, I don’t know, but what it did do is it played directly into the Trump/conservative narrative regarding the black lives movement being a villain, which further motivated the white racists to come out to vote.


    That would also be consistent with the racism/turnout data that impacted key districts in the 2016 election, which is discussed in the “Everybody Lies” book.

    “Confirmation bias occurs from the direct influence of desire on beliefs. When people would like a certain idea/concept to be true, they end up believing it to be true. They are motivated by wishful thinking. This error leads the individual to stop gathering information when the evidence gathered so far confirms the views (prejudices) one would like to be true.“

    That’s exactly the game that’s being played here...by the Russians, MSNBC, Fox News, and Rush Limbaugh.

    Re: Russia

    I would love to hear Rosenstein telling Putin that he has to extradite those Russians to the US for us to convict them. Can you believe that Mueller is in his tenth month of this investigation and that is all he's found?? Time to go after Hillary and the DNC to catch the real crooks. That's where he'll find real Russia collusion.

    Sure we do, you’re just refusing to acknowledge it. That’s why you’re so susceptible to biased “news” and “facts”.

    I would have never been successful in my profession that I was successful at for 40 years if I ever believed the first thing that I was told. Your mind has been corrupted by believing things that you know aren't true. That's your job and that's what you're required to do.

    Hahaha! My job huh? You’re clueless Don and you don’t even know it.

    Who in Don’s tribe wants to stand by this statement? Anybody?
