The Russians are once again working hard to affect voters to vote for Trump. They did use social media in 2016 and are expected to use it again this time.

The Russians have been preparing — and experimenting — for the 2020 election, undeterred by American efforts to thwart them but aware that they needed a new playbook of as-yet-undetectable methods, United States officials said.

They have made more creative use of Facebook and other social media. Rather than impersonating Americans as they did in 2016, Russian operatives are working to get Americans to repeat disinformation, the officials said. That strategy gets around social media companies’ rules that prohibit “inauthentic speech.”

One of the tools they are using is spreading misinformation in order to inflame people against the Democrats and in favor of Trump.

There is a lot of misinformation here on this board and that makes me wonder whether we are seeing some of that Russian meddling here as well as in other social media.

Of course we do, the first clue would be the terrible translators they are using pimping QAnon level nonsense.

Agreed. Sometimes even the posters seem obvious.

some are better than others. However, i am guessing like everyone else.

We have several Russian trolls here on DB. I would call them out by their screen names but it's against TOS.

Absolutely, while some need new updated translating software there are others that have been here for a while and know how to troll.

No worries about the Chi-coms trying to get Basement Joe elected? Since there is more money involved there, I would think it's a bigger threat.
You won't hear that on the MSM, though.

You don't have to do any of that (infiltrating). Trump is already a Putin puppet and doing what Putin does, which is "my way or the highway". I would not be surprised if soon we do not start seeing some of the Democrat leaders get poisoned with Novichok (confirmed poison used by Putin), just like Navalny was.

Of course there are Russian trolls on DP. I've called out about half a dozen since I've been here.
