FYI - O'Keefe released another fake expose Sunday. Probability coordinate with Jr and PILLOW GUY

They released it early to try to counter The NY Times tax story.


Project Veritas Video Was a ‘Coordinated Disinformation Campaign,’ Researchers Say
The timing of the deceptive video, which accuses Ilhan Omar of voter fraud, indicates that several conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr., may have known about it in advance.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/29/us/politics/project-veritas-ilhan-omar.html

Mr. O’Keefe’s promotional posts had said the video would be released on Monday, but Project Veritas released it on Sunday instead, a few hours after the publication of The Times’s investigation. The researchers concluded that this timing was unlikely to be a coincidence “given the huge marketing about a 9/28 release date,” they wrote in an analysis that Alex Stamos, who led the research team at the Stanford Internet Observatory, shared with The Times.

“It’s a great example of what a coordinated disinformation campaign looks like: pre-seeding the ground and then simultaneously hitting from a bunch of different accounts at once,” Mr. Stamos said

Roughly an hour after The Times published its article, Mike Lindell, chief executive of MyPillow and honorary chairman of Mr. Trump’s Minnesota campaign, tweeted a video of himself saying that Project Veritas’s supposed exposé would be released that night at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

Mr. O’Keefe posted the video on Twitter at 9 p.m. on the dot, and the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. tweeted it just seven minutes later. Two minutes after that, the president’s “war room” account retweeted him, and the president himself soon began commenting.

1. Trump accused Omar at his KKKlan rally last night of "ballot harvesting"

I caught a short clip of the rally where Trump made this false claim and he used profanity numerous times and implied that Omar wasn't really an American. The crowd was chanting "Lock her up."

It still shocks me to see someone outside of a foreign dictator speak this way.

2. Ballet harvesting?

Does that mean making people attend performances of "Swan Lake" and "Rite of Spring"?

3. Oh the have been planting that seed for weeks now.

I have been lurking in wrong wing world on fb private groups for months now.

They have the meme's and banners all lined up. Even JW is raising money on this.

I have been getting them taken down by reporting them so it does work if fb knows about them.

5. It also splashed on my YouTube

It popped up at the TOP of my prompt list. Does anyone know if posters can manipulate the system to push their videos above and beyond the usual YouTube preference algorithms?

6. Not Surprising

The only thing that surprises me about this is that anybody still funds O'Keefe and his cronies. The videos they produce are obvious trash. They get the clicks because of coordinated pushing by the usual suspects. The idiots in the Trump war room and Uday Trump especially push it into the MAGAt atmosphere.

8. Not that I would normally know about it but I hadn't heard anything

The fake Hillary Russia thing leaked by DNI Ratcliffe is like a third testament in RW world right now.
