Here's a real live example of a chaos agent who infiltrated the resistance, joined candidate rooms, warned others about infiltrators, used Russian talking points to turn black people against Dems, & now supports Trump. 1/ H/T @ManInTheHoody #ThursdayThoughts #disinformation
Back in December 2017 she warned people about infiltrators. Makes her look like real resistance, right? 2/ #FakeNews #infiltrator
She tweeted about Trump being a sexual predator, & a Survivors March for survivors of sexual assault. 3/
There is no info on the site about a march, who was organizing it, or if it applied for or received non profit status.

She then started accusing people in candidate rooms she was in of being racist, and "trying to harm" her and her son. She lied about those being her rooms and her having "built" them. 5/
She still continues that lie today. She's never shown proof of any racism, harassment or threats against her or her son, but she repeats those accusations often. 6/
Her profile now says she's the director of PR fire MagaFirstNews.

Her first peice for them talks about how black people are no longer supporting Dems, and handed come to see these "good in Trump". 7/
This is the natural conclusion to the Russian talking points she was following.

Yes. Russian troll farms targeted POC (specifically black people) on social media to inflame racial tension & fracture the Dem vote to help Trump. 8/
The companies behind the these troll farms were controlled by a friend of Putin's.

Sharika is literally doing Putin's work.
Chaos agents & infiltrators can spend a long time (like a year) building up their accounts & establishing their credibility as resistance accounts.

It's important to read & learn about this so that you can spot it.

please unroll.
And just to clarify, since a few people are confused and seem to think that "chaos agent" means "Russian agent" (no LOL) - in this context, a chaos agent is a person who starts out pretending to be resistance/anti Trump, then "flips" to suddenly supporting Trump, even though it
completely contradicts all of their previous statements. For example, someone who claimed that their child was sexually abused, and was repeatedly tweeting about Trump being a sexual predator - obviously a chaos agent. There's no way to know what, if anything, they said is true.-
Their motive for doing what they do can vary. They may have no connection to Russia or any Russians at all. Someone may flip because they got a paying job, and the money is enough to pretend to support Trump. Or their goal may have been to cause division in the resistance, like
Mensch. Anyone can act as a chaos agent. In this particular case, I think money is involved, but that's my personal opinion.

So no, don't confuse "chaos agent" with "Russian agent". Not the same. At all.
