Title: If You Oppose NFL Kneeling, You May Be A Victim Of Russian Trolls: WaPo

The Washington Post, offering no evidence, would like us to know that those dastardly Russians are at it again - using weaponized social media accounts to twist our minds over both sides of the NFL kneeling controversy. 

Alternate text if image doesn't load

In short, Americans whipped up over NFL players refusing to stand for the National Anthem may not be in control of their own emotions thanks to "instances of accounts linked to Russian trolls" who have "weighed in" on the NFL controversy, as recently as four months ago

So, not actual Russian trolls - but Twitter accounts linked to them, and four months ago. Got it. 

Citing a report by CNN which also contains no evidence, WaPo's offers a "reminder from CNN Tech about the opportunity that Russia sees in the divide here over the anthem." 

CNN worked with researchers at Clemson University that have archived millions of tweets sent by the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll group that was indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in February. The accounts' links to Russia were discovered by Twitter, which provided details about them to Congress. The data shows the trolls repeatedly weighing in on the debate, using different accounts to take both sides. While they used some accounts to push petitions to fire the protesting players, they used others to hail them as heroes.

Over the past year, social media networks have identified and removed thousands of accounts tied to the IRA. But despite the tech companies' efforts, there’s no indication that the group is shying away from the NFL controversy.

...

Clemson University researchers and CNN have found instances of accounts linked to Russian trolls by Twitter weighing in on the issue as recently as May of this year. -CNN

So - four months ago, Clemson University and CNN found "instances of accounts linked to Russian trolls" weighing in on the NFL kneeling controversy - triggering feeble-minded 'Muricans into false patriotism and false protest, or something like that. 

Who needs evidence when words will suffice?

I guess I'd care about the kneeling if I cared about football or Nike. Trying. Trying. Trying. Nope. Still don't give a shit about any of it.

If you read WaPo it's a sure indication that you read without understanding.

I see NFL football players disrespectfully kneeling during our National Anthem. I don't care about their cause or the color of their skin because neither justifies their behavior.

I am offended by that behavior and I don't need the Russians or anyone else to tell me how to feel about it. So if they're trolling, they're wasting their time with me and, I'm sure, millions of other patriotic citizens.

Did you see how Serina Williams acted last week? Running her lips, disrespecting the Ref’s... and smashing rackets like an urban dysfunctional potato... and if you question her behavior... you’re a male chauvinist racist.

That cartoon that got worldwide attention... was spot on and the potato deserved it.

Guess you're not old enough to have seen John McEnroe play.

Oh - he's white BTW.

Getting pissed at the refs is not just a "potato" thing princess.

Anyways, your psychotic tantrums here make Serena (and McEnroe) look like saints.

I remember McEnroe, mainly because of his publicized temper tantrums. I understand he was an excellent player.

I'm not a tennis fan, but Serena's publicized behavior in this situation tarnishes her image in my mind. She's still a great player who is getting older.

The young champ should be interesting to keep an eye on.

Edit: I thought this was the Serena thread and sorry for going off topic.

He still is pretty good - watched him a few times on the old-timers circuit.

He's mellowed quite a bit, but still gives the refs grief - I think he does it more for the fans..

It doesn’t look like the pothead hippie asshole actually smashed or DAMAGED the racket... but that silverback knuckle dragging potato has smashed dozens of rackets. Check it out on YouTube, paultard. There is no comparison.

Bwaahaa!! Hilarious run-down of events (spot on, btw)

That was...pathetic, wasn't it? What is it with these multi-millionaire urban-types?? They are mad at the world...even when the world hands them the world on a gold platter.

Serena ALWAYS acts like a nasty coked up primate when she's losing, and losing BAD. (why has everyone overlooked that??)

And how about THIS: This roided up "woman" pointed her angry BLM finger like a gun, threatening the Portuguese judge for merely upholding the rules & regs. She was..."The Resistance", don't you see?

This Diva, this self-entitle BLM militant claimed the Ump was "exist" AND "racist". This fascist POS ingrate claimed to have defended the REST of us from such over-officiousness.

Who defended Serena?? The same usual suspects at the US Open and elsewhere who SUPPORT SERENA'S TENNIS-ANARCHY also support Antifa, BLM, and the Dem Party!:

Hehe-ha!!

Ditto, GI. On ALL OF IT.

Here's more major differences (dunno WHAT matches Deckard is watching):

1) Johnny Mac GOT BOO-ED. Serena was instead SUPPORTED by hypocrites.
2) Serena LIED. She WAS being coached.
3) Used her "I'm Mommy" Card.
4) Used her "You're a Sexist Card. And, "It's because I'm a women!" Card.
5) Used her "YOU'RE A RACIST!" BLM Card. BIG TIME.
6) Serena slandered the reputation of the Ump in public, calling him "thief" (McEnroe tamely called the Ump a "jerk".)
7) Serena STOLE from her opponent what should have been a celebration-win at the US Open. Too late to re-live that.

Exactly.

Serena is a great player. No one can take that away from her (even though she's taken PEDs.)

When a champ does NOT merit respect is when they are not gracious losers, and when he/she dis-respects the Game, her Opponent, and The Fans. THAT may become a large part of her legacy.

Ted Williams, arguably one of the 5-all time greatest baseball players ruined his rep, disrespected people, and lost out on 2 or 3 additional MVPs in his career because of it.

I mean she's never failed a test.
