Skip to comments.These are the Facebook posts Russia used to undermine Hillary Clinton’s campaign

Russian Facebook and Twitter accounts masqueraded as pro-Trump Americans when they took aim at Clinton.
By meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Moscow appears to have initially aimed to plant Donald Trump in the White House. But as signs toward the end of the campaign pointed to Trumps defeat, actors in Russia were primarily trying to hamstring Hillary Clintons perceived ascension to the presidency. That theme ThinkProgress detailed earlier this week by analyzing Russias creation of hundreds of fake Facebook accounts, pumped via ads and promotion into Americans feeds.
Weve also learned that certain pages called for followers to vote for Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders, as opposed to Clinton although those posts, especially as pertaining to Sanders, havent yet been revealed publicly.
Both the Secured Borders and Beyond Patriotic pages revealed by the Daily Beast were steeped in anti-Clinton rhetoric, with the latter organizing on-the-ground rallies that featured Americans chanting to lock her up! In one example from Secured Borders, the authors referring to Clinton as Killary piggy-backed on the outrage over Clintons comments that certain Trump supporters are deplorables. As the post wrote, If Killary thinks that being American, loving your country and be concerned about ours and our childrens future is deplorable, then hell yeah count me in in that basket! [sic]

So I am to believe the Russkies planted the “Lock her up” meme? I don’t think so.
If Killary thinks that being American, loving your country and be concerned about ours and our childrens future is deplorable, then hell yeah count me in in that basket!”
Are they sure a Russian posted that? Sounds 100% American.
In other words, it was not a campaign of Russian support for Trump but one seeking to ridicule Hillary as a future president, backstabbing her under the bus while she thought she was so smart making deals with them... just as we all along were screaming at liberals that this was what was going to happen.
I do not expect Mueller to come up with that conclusion..
The Mueller is a fraud looking for his own
Wait until they find the original copies of all the Trump Speeches before they were translated from Russian to English.
I do NOT, for a minute, think that Russia had any interference in this election. Mueller Team, Dems, and media are creating FAKE NEWS, and pushing this ‘witch hunt’ to use their agenda against Trump! All BS!
Never saw any of them. The spelling/grammar errors would have stuck in my mind on many of them.
That is what spies do, pretend to look 100% Americans. You have Russians out there who have very good accents despite having never stepped foot in America, imitating accents from Nebraska, Texas and what not.
It never gets old.
I’ll smile at that video as long as I live.
Russia has had interference in every elections ever since the 20s.
Come on, you think they are saints or what?
I was referring to the 100% American sentiment.
Not the use of language.
They would do it to back stab her after her deals.
I was there screaming at liberals that Obama pushing the reset button with Russia would see us and liberals massacred in a future conflict as a result. Then did it at Hillary. Now it is coming to light that it is exactly what they did.
Pesky Russkies....giving ILLary that Parkinson’s.
Keep posting that over and over.
I never get tired of seeing it.
And neither does anyone else.
Sentiment is a language. Your sentiment can lead to legislative language. They will certainly immitate that at a deeper level of language.
How did they find these posts are Russian interference in election? I doubt there is any proof what those are, this is crazy. I am sure they would interfere, but encryption makes me think some of these claims are false.
The dems can’t accept that we can’t stand her, her policies and ideologies and those of her supporters. I’m wondering the guy with the awesome sign that reads “Deplorable not Deportable....” is he a Russian? Or is he an American that a Russian posted a photo and story about?
I hear Russia founded FreeRepublic to aid in the campaign against Hillary.
Heck, I thought someone had stolen my Twitter stream looking at that list. Those pages had ZERO impact. These people are nuts.
