Democrats Engaged in More False-Flag Election Interference In Jones-Moore Race Than First Reported

An assault on the very foundations of our democracy.

Reports show Democratic operatives engaged in a second misinformation campaign in Alabama ahead of the 2017 special election.

Operatives behind a so-called false flag campaign in Alabama did it to combat conservative memes targeting Hillary Clinton in 2016, the Washington Post reported.
The so-called false-flags targeting Republican Roy Moore in Alabama were much more widespread than previously reported.

A series of new reports reveal the full extent to which Democratic operatives engaged in a social media disinformation campaign targeting Alabama voters ahead of a special election campaign in 2017.

Progressives created a disinformation campaign exploiting concerns that former senatorial candidate Roy Moore would reimplement prohibition, The New York Times reported Monday. Another spate of reports in December revealed a similar project designed to harm Moore.

Operatives created a "Dry Alabama" Facebook page with a blunt message attached: Alcohol is evil and should be prohibited. The page included images of car wrecks and ruined families, the report notes. Its contents were targeted at business conservatives who are inclined to oppose prohibition.

One person who worked on the project, Matt Osborne, believes that such tactics should be made illegal but is not willing to give them up so long as Republicans are engaging in similar antics. He said Democrats must do whatever is necessary to rebut conservative memes made popular during the 2016 election.

...

The Washington Post, for its part, obtained a document Sunday describing the so-called Project Birmingham as being "a digital messaging operation to influence the outcome of the AL senate race" by targeting hundreds of thousands of likely voters with messages on social media platforms while disguising the fact that the effort was designed to help Moore's opponent, Doug Jones.

...

[The false-flag election interference campaign] attracted attention from local and national media, falsely suggesting Russia was backing Moore's candidacy. The Montgomery Advertiser, for one, was the first to cover the story using the Russian-bot angle. National media outlets quickly followed suit.
