    You know what I think is interesting about the recent info dump we've got recently about Facebook I honestly think, almost like a virus ironically, that what we are seeing and for some time now probably, is the importation of the online tactics and strategies of Russia's state sanctioned foreign influence campaign to the American Reactionary Conservative sphere. The various spawns media wise of the Ben Shapiro, Tucker Carlson et al. ilk Daily Caller are just the tip of the spear. Domestic forces using bots or other similar tactics is also going on.

    It isn't JUST that the Rightists in America are willfully ignorant or simply credulous. Their own ranks are filled with those that would gleefully be a part of pushing us into either violent civil strife or usher in a White Nationalist Authoritarian state.

    Despite all the "No Collusion" BS it is clear whether or not that is a sincere belief on the Right, they sure have adopted a lot of the strategies and tactics of Putin's political operations.

    Yeah, NFT's are a scam, and this guy just did a scam on top of a scam.

    I just learned what NFTs were and it's the most asinine scam I've ever heard in a while.
