Response to Botany (Reply #3)

6. I disagree (with caveats). The DU hack video had a lot of imagery that was "off"...

...for American wingnuts. There was a lot of imagery there which looked like it came from European (especially eastern European) sources (e.g., a 2-headed eagle symbol). It's the sort of stuff that wouldn't have been the "go to" imagery for American wingnuts (though alt-right groups on both continents may have had enough cross-fertilization to account for it, maybe).

The stuff edited into the Kingsman-derived video is all the stuff of domestic wingnut obsessions: US politicians, celebrities, mostly-US-based media plus a couple of their love-to-hate foreign outlets (e.g., al Jazeera).

There were no shout-outs to European groups, as far as I could tell. No symbols of European RW parties, no European pols among the victims, no NGOs, no European media for which most Americans would say "who?". It was all for US-domestic consumption. It was a wet-dream of blowing away The Enemy Within. It's certainly possible Russkies had a hand in it, but the sensibilities are pure triple-distilled American Bile.

There's nothing "Russian" about the style of editing, though. Here's a video from March 2016 using the same techniques, and it wasn't exactly on the Russian side.
