Top 2020 Democrats face 'sustained and ongoing' social media disinformation attack
By Laura Clawson

"Many of those apparently viral memes and hashtags you’re seeing attacking leading Democratic presidential prospects are in fact a “sustained and ongoing” coordinated attack, Politico reports. The tech company Guardians.ai ran an analysis of social media activity against Democratic presidential candidates or potential candidates, and found that Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke are the top targets, with “clear signs of a coordinated effort of undetermined size that shares similar characteristics with the computational propaganda attacks launched by online trolls at Russia’s Internet Research Agency in the 2016 presidential election,” though Russia isn’t the only possible foreign state actor that could be involved in such attacks."

We see that this is happening all over so it appears to be Deja vu all over again as during the 2016 election season! There are efforts right here in this forum, no doubt by foreign bots, that try to present confusing information about the candidates who are running on the Democratic ticket. One has to stay one step ahead of them, however. We can't let our guard down even for a second. They are out to destroy the only hope we have of restoring sanity to this nation and we must fight like hell to protect that right by voting overwhelmingly Democratic in 2020.
