Imaging throwing away your whole life just to have the people who support you claim you are a CIA ANTIFA plant.

Projection.


My daughter told me twitter was on fire about this, and I thought it was awful that people would promote violence, I didn't know. I was fooled by rw media.

Who would benefit the most from spreading disinformation to further divide Americans against each other?

Russia, China, and North Korea.

Just saying.
Well, ya, and Russia and China do things to encourage the division, but that very like wasn't involved here, all that was needed was for it to rally the right against the left.

Very likely wasn't? I suppose it's just a guess in the end, but why suspect that it's not closer to 50/50? We already know they have government-sanctioned cyberattack and disinformation campaigns operating all over social media. If I were them I'd spin up the bots after the Roe ruling too. Pounce when your enemy stumbles.

False flag is the middle age equivalent of "my dog ate my homework".
People who yell about false flag ops have the mental acuity and emotional maturity of a retarded nine year old gang banger on crack.

Having some idea how the foreign operations work. There were dedicated operations during campaign to do things like attack candidates and promote others and to 'troll' to increase division, but I've seen no evidence it's an ongoing, everyday activity 'just for the sake of it'. I find this far more easily explained by the right exploiting the issue, than any foreign actors.

Uh, you're saying that the evidence showing right-wingers did 'false flag' attacks here, by creating false left-wing accounts attacking Thomas with racist attacks and threats of violence to get angry reactions against the 'left' are false accounts, and you are attacking people who support the claims?

I would say your description better fits the people who fall for the false flags, or the ones who make baseless claims about false flag attacks, while you don't recognize the ones that are real.

I'm glad it's not what you meant to say, but you attacked all claims of false flag issues, not only the baseless ones.
Sigh, the Trumpy Qanon Right uses "FALSE FLAG!!!!!!" as a nine year old uses "My dog ate my homework".
I can't spell it out any better than that, sorry.

Yes, they do. I have 'false flag' on my top ten list of overused and misused phrases, with "rigged" and "deep state". But you attacked anyone who says false flag, which would include people pointing out the evidence that right-wing people did do a false flag in this case. It would be like saying all presidential pardons are corrupt, because some are.
