Hillary Supporters Task Force to Push Back Against Online Harassment & Thank SuperDelegates!

Hillary supporters, you can help!

TASK FORCE WILL HELP CLINTON SUPPORTERS PUSH BACK ON ONLINE HARASSMENT
AND THANK SUPERDELEGATES

THANK A SUPERDELEGATE HERE:

Anonymous online attacks, from both sides of the political spectrum, have sought to spread lies and misleading narratives about Secretary Hillary Clinton.
Hillary’s supporters are more enthusiastic than Sen. Bernie Sanders’ supporters, yet oftentimes are discouraged from engaging online and are “often afraid to voice their thoughts” because of the fear of online harassment. Many of Hillary Clinton’s female supporters in particular have been subject to intense cyber-bullying and sexist attacks from swarms of anonymous attackers.

Among the many Hillary Clinton supporters attacked online, superdelegates have been subject to vicious attacks for supporting her. Even the director of MoveOn, which has endorsed Sen. Sanders, denounced this harassment.


In response to these attacks on supporters and superdelegates, Correct The Record is launching the Barrier Breakers 2016 digital task force. While Hillary Clinton fights to break down barriers and bring America together, the Barrier Breakers 2016 digital task force will serve as a resource for supporters looking for positive content and push-back to share with their online progressive communities, as well as thanking prominent supporters and committed superdelegates on social media.

Correct The Record will invest more than $1 million into Barrier Breakers 2016 activities, including the more than tripling of its digital operation to engage in online messaging both for Secretary Clinton and to push back against attackers on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram. Barrier Breakers 2016 is a project of Correct The Record and the brainchild of David Brock, and the task force will be overseen by President of Correct The Record Brad Woodhouse and Digital Director Benjamin Fischbein. The task force staff’s backgrounds are as diverse as the community they will be engaging with and include former reporters, bloggers, public affairs specialists, designers, Ready for Hillary alumni, and Hillary super fans who have led groups similar to those with which the task force will organize.

Lessons learned from online engagement with “Bernie Bros” during the Democratic Primary will be applied to the rest of the primary season and general election–responding quickly and forcefully to negative attacks and false narratives. Additionally, as the general election approaches, the task force will begin to push out information to Sanders supporters online, encouraging them to support Hillary Clinton.



The task force currently combats online political harassment, having already addressed more than 5,000 individuals who have personally attacked Secretary Clinton on Twitter. The task force will provide a presence and space online where Clinton supporters can organize and engage with one another and are able to obtain graphics, videos, gifs, and messaging to use in their own social spaces. Additionally, the Barrier Breakers 2016 task force hopes to embrace the creativity of Hillary Clinton’s supporters by sharing their efforts and content with other groups.

4. The problem is that now the BernieBro types

are swarming the Thank a Delegate site. It's pretty sickening and a clear example of the online harassment these spoiled and entitled brats have gotten away with so far.

They have become the raving lunatic bullies that Trump supporters have always been. They do their candidate no favors at all. And the thought of people like them in charge is every bit as terrifying as having Trump and his supporters in charge.

9. Yes, they are!

I love that Hillary is finally doing this. The BBs have controlled and overrun the narrative for far too long. They do not represent Hillary's actual voters, which we know far outnumbers Bernie's. Even on DU, which is a Democratic website, supporters are swarmed and harassed! Thank goodness we have the safe harbor of the HRC Group where we can post without constant attack.

It is time we make our voices count and have an online organization to help us do that. I can't imagine how awful it is to be a super and be subjected to their bullying and insults. I'm glad we can let them know there are many, many Democrats who support them and Hillary!

11. I do hope that they block

the worst abusers at least. I see the same names over and over, saying the same nasty things.

Yes, I felt it important to make my voice heard a couple months back when I saw how outnumbered HRC supporters were on DU and how we were always being shouted down. Or worse.

I have posted more OPs and responses in the past few months than in the previous near seven years and have done so in the hope that it will encourage others to speak up too.

Thanks so much to the HRC Group Admins, who have created this - comparatively - safe haven! As we know, we can be and are alert-stalked here too, however.

13. I think it's better to see them. No Super Delegate with a brain would switch to Bernie...

after what he, his campaign and his Followers have said about our party and our soon to be Nominee. It would be political suicide anyway. Bernie has a short shelf life. By next year the Cult of Bernie will have moved off to another False God.

20. Thank you for that, BlueMTexpat

the Hillary Group is phenomenal. We are so very lucky to have this place. The Admins and members are giving everyone a home and a place to safely share about Hillary, the election and beyond.

15. The REAL problem: Revolution Media

 

http://revolutionmediainc.com/

This is Bernie's marketing company. They're the ones in charge of his "online presence." They're the ones coordinating most of this digital harassment.

This link is on RM's Press page:
http://www.fastcompany.com/3058681/inside-bernie-sanders-social-media-machine

If we want to express ourselves, we really should be going right for the source.

I expect this post to be Alerted by one of Revolution Media's employees in the hopes of getting at least a 4-3 hide on it. I don't see how it might be considered to violate the TOS, but that probably won't stop them.

17. Thanks for this IamMab

Coordinated efforts seem to be the way they are approaching their "target" dialogues. You can see them at work in strategic comment sections, etc. I will be glad when the primary is over and the BB people are not overwhelming message boards with their propaganda. That is why they all sound alike! It is like they have have been programmed to repeat the same narrative, which of course, they have. The fact that Bernie has been hiring the people who have been harassing Hillary supporters online says everything we need to know about just how noble a campaign he has been operating.

I'm glad Hillary is getting on top of this now, especially before the General Election. Some of the more prolific, divisive, controversy-stirring trolls are likely Republican and she and we need to be ready for them!

22. Bernie bro harrasment and censorship was the whole reason I got online.

I saw what they were doing. I felt obligated to come online and speak up a little bit. I'll take a look at the site and try to support their efforts.

Maybe we should, you know, discuss the problems and background of someone running for president. Just a thought media...
