The closer we get to midterms, the more trolls & chaos agents we'll see coming out of the woodwork.

Their goal is to cause division in the Dem party and those supporting it, like in 2016. 1/

What is a chaos agent? Simply put, someone who actively tries to damage movements or stop goals from being met.

In the context of the resistance, it's a person who discourages people from supporting Dems, voting Dem, and undermines faith in the movement. 2/ #disinformation
As Mueller's indictments show, this was a specific goal of the Russian #HybridWar in 2016. The Bernie v. Hillary split was a convenient source of tension to exploit. 3/

⚡🔥🧠💥 Thread on #HybridWar: definition, information and resources. Follow up to @BylineFest discussions. #InformatioWarfare #Psyop #AlternativeWar #MindWar #war #Russia #AsymetricWar
1. Russia carries out a non-traditional war against the West. US/EU reply: oblivion, denial & confusion. Acknowledge it is a hybrid war, not "meddling," learn the Kremlin mentality and methodology and develop a new way of thinking and a strategy.
2. The long-term goal of the Kremlin's hybrid war is the expansion of the Russian economic and geopolitical interests as a guarantee of the personal wealth and power of Putin and his allies. Read more:

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza
Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2
Russia also targeted #peopleofcolor (specifically black voters) to sow distrust of Hillary & the political process, which helped Trump's campaign. 3

"Every dictator, when the economy finally betrays them, must create the image of a besieged fortress." - @Kasparov63 on why dictators create national enemies.

It was Russia's reichstag event & Russia's autocratic history since can only be viewed with this context.

Electoral meddling. Bad. Influencing another countries electoral process for the gain of your own. With each day we get more of an idea of what happened in 2016 with #TrumpRussia
But as a whole,until 2016, the American public were oblivious to what was occurring around the world
America is actually one of the worst countries at this behaviour. In fact the two worst countries are.....Russia and the United States. Combined they have interfered in 117 elections around the world, from 1946 to 2000. Of all elections in whole world in those 54 years, there was
a one in nine interference. That is insane.
One also had to remember that the middle East do not hate the west for no reason. The interference in the 1950s, overthrowing the government in Iran in return for 40% of the oil fields left Iranians under a dictator regime from the
