Putin using propaganda about immigrants to create chaos and unrest in Europe

Last edited Thu Mar 23, 2017, 09:36 PM - Edit history (1)

I stupidly thought it was just alt right racists doing all of this. Now that I read this it is easy to see how these efforts are much more coordinated and the propaganda assaults are much bigger than any one racist group could achieve.



A former Hungarian spy has broken cover to describe how the Russians have played up and exaggerated the European refugee crisis for propaganda.

Farenc Katrein, who served in the country’s counter-intelligence agency for 13 years, said the Kremlin is “aggravating” the effects of migration by spreading “false” stories.

Mr Katrein said Russian officials, including foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, exaggerated the Cologne New Year's Eve sex attacks reports.

“Russia plays a part in aggravating the migration crisis and especially in using it for propaganda and gaining influence,” said the defector, who now lives abroad.

You can see their work all over the place. It is especially easy for them to deceive when people are speaking a different language and they "Interpret" what they are saying. Here is a link to a Youtube videos that show the exact propaganda this article is talking about. And listed right next to it is a bunch of others.

1. Nah

 

Russia is doing what is best for Russia. It makes sense for them to fight for a bigger role for their country in the world. They are scumbags and this is underhanded but they aren't the true root of this "trumpism"

The true root of all this hatred is Trump voters. How easily the get seduced by a message of hate, and fear and resentment. The Russians are spreading it, but the reason it's so successful is because there was always a segment of our population that would easily embrace it.

4. Obviously it was.

 

Didn't say it was good that they were. But it's an important regional ally for them so that's why they prop up Assad.

2. So that's why many refugee haters posting comments on German news articles

about refugees are at the same time Putin lovers. Oh, and Trump lovers of course.

Hm. Okay, probably just alt right talking points that could be influenced by Putin trolls, or maybe not.
