Russia Bought “Black Lives Matter” Ads, Fomenting Unrest

Written by 

Presumably in an effort to fan the flames of racial division and undermine national unity in America, a Russian government-linked “troll farm” has just been exposed for reportedly buying Facebook ads on behalf of the revolutionary so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement. According to CNN, which admittedly is not a reliable source, the Russian ad buys specifically targeted areas that were already facing massive racial and political unrest fueled primarily by Obama, fake news from establishment media organs and hatred pushed by establishment race mongers seeking division and more hate. If CNN's reporting turns out to be true, the implications are enormous.

CNN, often ridiculed as the “Clinton News Network” or even the “Communist News Network,” has been one of the lead purveyors of the debunked conspiracy theories surrounding President Trump and Russia. But on September 27, citing “unnamed sources,” it became the first outlet to report on the explosive allegations that the Kremlin was buying ads viewed as supportive of BLM, and aiming those ads at regions of the country — Ferguson and Baltimore — that were facing violence and riots, much of it inspired by BLM and the establishment lies that underpinned the extremist movement. 

“The decision to target the ad in those two cities [Baltimore and Ferguson] offers the first look at how accounts linked to the Russian government-affiliated troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency used geographically targeted advertising to sow political chaos in the United States,” CNN reported, citing supposed anonymous sources that could not be independently verified. According to CNN's alleged sources, the ad buys appeared in late 2015 or early 2016.

“The sources said it appears the ad was meant to appear both as supporting Black Lives Matter but also could be seen as portraying the group as threatening to some residents of Baltimore and Ferguson,” CNN reported. Descriptions of the Kremlin-backed ads “suggest that the apparent goal of the Russian buyers was to amplify political discord and fuel an atmosphere of incivility and chaos, though not necessarily to promote one candidate or cause over another,” the leftist and globalist “news” network reported.

A former CIA officer quoted by CNN offered some apparent motives to explain the Russian scheming. “This is consistent with the overall goal of creating discord inside the body politic here in the United States, and really across the West,” said Steve Hall, the ex-spook who now serves as a “CNN National Security Analyst.” “It shows ... the level of sophistication of their targeting. They are able to sow discord in a very granular nature, target certain communities and link them up with certain issues.”

Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was among those quoted in various media outlets regarding the news. However, aside from some rather silly questions, he mostly tried to find ways to revive the debunked conspiracy theories about Trump and the Kremlin even when faced with reports that Moscow was promoting BLM amid racial unrest in U.S. cities. “Their aim was to sow chaos,” Warner (D-Va.) was quoted as saying. “In many cases, it was more about voter suppression rather than increasing turnout.”

Another voice quoted in the establishment media in reports about the Facebook ads was former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, who served under Obama. “Is it a goal of the Kremlin to encourage discord in American society? The answer to that is yes,” said McFaul, who now serves as a director of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University. “More generally, Putin has an idea that our society is imperfect, that our democracy is not better than his, so to see us in conflict on big social issues is in the Kremlin’s interests.”

Of course, Obama, who along with Bill and Hillary Clinton has extremely troubling links to the Kremlin, shared Moscow's apparent passion for sowing discord, racial hate, anti-Americanism, attacks on police, and more. Indeed, aside from promising Vladimir Putin's regime that he would have “more flexibility” after the election, Obama went so far as to bring Russian terror troops on to U.S. soil for the first time in history to train with American forces. Clinton, meanwhile, has been implicated in the dangerous sale of U.S. uranium to Moscow, something with massive potential implications for national security.

Incredibly, though, the increasingly unhinged national media, led by the most dishonest outfits among them such as the Washington Post, are still desperately trying to keep alive the debunked conspiracy theories about Trump and his alleged ties to the Kremlin. “U.S. investigators are now trying to figure out whether Russian operators and members of Trump’s team coordinated in any way,” reported the Post, which was recently exposed in newspapers across America for publishing demonstrable lies to smear conservatives, in its article about the Kremlin-linked ads supporting BLM.  

Of course, mass-murdering totalitarians based in Moscow have a long history of trying to inflame and sow racial division in the United States to undermine America and freedom. As late as 1987, Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev was advocating the establishment of separate homelands for black people and other minorities in the United States, the New York Times reported. Indeed, as far back as the 1930s, communist operatives were trying to dupe American blacks into setting up an independent all-black state in the American South, the Times reported.

More recently, Russian strongman Putin tried in 2014 to hype and fan racial tensions in America. “Do you believe that everything is perfect now from the point of view of democracy in the United States?” Putin asked on CBS’s 60 Minutes show, incorrectly referring to America as a “democracy” rather than a constitutional republic. “If everything was perfect, there wouldn’t be the problem of Ferguson. There would be no abuse by the police. But our task is to see all these problems and respond properly.”

The sort of racial hate and division promoted in America by both Russia as well as the Western establishment and its propaganda organs — often using blatant lies such as the infamous “Hands Up! Don't Shoot” meme — has real world consequences. Just last month, a black supremacist and self-described racist “Moor” decided to murder two police officers in Kissimmee, Florida, in an apparent ambush after spending weeks ranting about the alleged evils of America, police, white people, Christianity, and more. He also said he was looking for a wife like Communist Party leader Angela Davis, who received the “Lenin Peace Prize” from mass-murdering Soviet dictator Leonid Brezhnev and was prosecuted for involvement in murdering a judge.

Before that recent murder, another unhinged gunman driven over the edge by, among other forces, dishonest media reports hyping alleged “racism,” went on a rampage murdering police officers and their families in Los Angeles. In a bizarre manifesto focusing on alleged racism and other issues, the cop killer praised Obama, Hillary Clinton, and a number of establishment media personalities such as Chris Matthews, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, and Anderson Cooper, whose constant race-mongering and dishonesty have inflamed racial tensions across America to advance a subversive agenda.     

BLM has its own history of links to Moscow and its tentacles. One of the movement's co-founders, for example, was Alicia Garza. Among other developments, Garza has openly praised convicted cop-killer and communist fugitive Assata Shakur for supposed contributions to the “Black Liberation Movement.” After becoming a convicted cop-killer, Shakur escaped to Communist Cuba, where she was offered “political asylum” in the 1980s by the Soviet puppet regime enslaving the island. BLM also showered the late mass-murdering dictator Fidel Castro with praise.

In an e-mail sent out to prominent black Christian leaders and others, Dr. Randy Short, a writer, historian, and minister, slammed BLM and its Kremlin backers. "If you have read the recent news the Russians and others seek to use these weevils in our midst with the infamous name Black Lives Matter who are a cancer to our souls to create chaos and division," he said. "When we lead in faith we defeat these atheistic Communist vulgarians who aim to implode the moral fabric of our struggling communities and embroil us in a racial conflict that we know will go horribly for us."

In follow-up comments provided to The New American, Minister Short also highlighted the funding to BLM from "sinister billionaires" such as George Soros, as well as other "Trotskyite elites." "Black Lives Matter has a cynical and anti-social agenda to inflame pre-existing tensions between African Americans and law enforcement nationally by partnering with their rich backers who have considerable press support to highlight the issue police brutality against Blacks, while neither offering real solutions nor addressing issues of structural poverty nor the major matter of homocide and violence that is considerable in many African American neighborhoods," he said, noting that BLM and their "white homosexual allies" were aiming to seize the reins of leadership over African Americans using tactics similar to those of the likes of Abbie Hoffman as well as Bernadine Dorne and Bill Ayers of the "freelove terrorist group Weathermen." "Black Lives Matter is just a black mask on a white leftist face that has an ideology that is a hash of free-love utopian socialism banded with eugenics, anti-Christian sentiments, and a potpouri of new Left radical chic from the late 1960s and early 1970s."

"The roots of Black Lives Matter date back to the 1922 Communist International Conference in the former Soviet Union wherein it was proposed by Marxist-Leninists the Blacks in the United States constituted a ‘nation within a nation’ and this oppressed minority could be used as a sparkplug for a violent revolution against the United States," Dr. Short continued. "Blacks were promised support for the creation of a Black Republic in five Southern states carved out of the Black Belt, and the ulterior motive of the Marxist-Leninists was to use Blacks as canon fodder for their dream of taking over the United States. In spite of the collapse of the former Soviety Union in 1992, a disciplined and committed Communist cabal of revolutionaries still dream of bringing America down and creating an atheistic-one-world government dominated by the teachings of Marx and Lenin. Only sincere Christians committed to the brotherhood of the early Christian church can stop the maniacal march of these paid agents of hedonism, atheism, and niilistic racial conflict."

"On the south side of Chicago which is home to both the largest Black community in America and home to the University of Chicago, there the unwashed and unlettered masses of African Americans led by Christian activists like Mark Clark and Paul McKinley have physically fought and defeated Black Lives Matter and Black Youth 100, both LGBTQ-Marxist-Leninist groups supported by the likes of Bill Ayers and other University of Chicago intellectuals who are followers of Saul Alinsky," he added. "In Saint Louis, the masses of African Americans who are united with peers in Chicago have rejected Black Lives Matter. However, the mainstream media desparately laboring for their globalist owners have refused to show that the Black community has rejected Black Lives Matter — despite the continuation of police violence across America. The Black masses know that the logical progression of groups like Black Lives Matter and Black Youth 100 is a racial conflict which they neither want nor think will be in their favor."

Beyond Putin, the globalist establishment, and the media, even the dictators club known as the United Nations has been promoting Black Lives Matter while trying to foment racial division in America. In fact, the blood of five Dallas police officers murdered by a black racist at a Black Lives Matter rally was not even dry when the UN released a statement praising the BLM movement. The UN "expert" involved, a fringe Filipino activist whose qualifications to be an “Expert on People of African Descent” were not immediately clear, also took the opportunity to again demonize American police officers as racist yahoos out to murder black people.

“Excessive use of force by the police against African Americans in the United States is a regular occurrence,” he claimed. “African Americans are reportedly shot at more than twice the rate of white people.” In the real world, the studies that have been done completely demolish the the establishment-backed narrative of anti-black U.S. police. According to a 2014 study published in the Journal of Experimental Criminology, police are actually less likely to shoot black suspects than white suspects. About twice as many whites are killed by police each year than blacks, according to CDC data.

Whether the CNN and Washington Post reports on the Kremlin's ad buys promoting BLM are true remains to be seen. There is a very good reason why Americans increasingly regard the two outlets as leading purveyors of “fake news,” with President Trump even designating CNN as “very fake news." But either way, it is clear that the Kremlin has an interest in fomenting unrest in America — and that similar schemes have been underway for generations.

Rather than helping put Trump in power, it seems any Russian involvement in U.S. affairs was aimed primarily at ripping the nation apart. Some analysts have even suggested that the Trump-Russia narrative could even be Russian disinformation. Establishment forces in America and abroad exploited the racial chaos fanned by BLM and Russia to assault the Constitution and push for a nationalized police force.

Considering the revelations by KGB defectors such as Anatoly Golitsyn, who warned of a phony “collapse” of communism in Moscow long before it happened, the reason for pursuing such an agenda is clear. Americans must resist the efforts, from whatever the sources, to promote hate and break down U.S. society by dividing the people along arbitrary lines. Only as a united people can Americans overcome the dangerous machinations of liberty's enemies, both foreign and domestic.
