GOP machine using YouTube 'reaction' videos targeted to black audiences.

They are tipping (as in paying $$) black reactors to feature appearances by Trump, Jordan Peterson, Sowell, and others. The more positively they ‘react’ the more the wingnuts will subscribe and tip the reactor. The reactors’ subscription numbers are climbing by the hundreds of thousands.

More reactors will start doing this because it’s a moneymaker for them. Whether the reactor agrees with the speech or not, it gets out there and disagreement is blunted so as not to offend the people ‘tipping’. The clips of some of these reactors agreeing with the Republicans on any part of it will be further spread at social media sites. The reactions will seem legit to an unknowing viewer.

This is how they are going after voters in minority communities, and I’d bet that DNC is still unaware.

Frame GOP's watercarrying for 1% as Representation Without Taxation.

GOP’s current tax plan for working families is Taxation Without Representation.

What’s the difference between the 1% and DC?
DC gets Taxation Without Representation and the 1% get Representation Without Taxation.
