German Election Meddling! But It Isn’t Russia This Time…

The Germans are making accusations of “meddling” in their election that is expected to hand Chancellor Angela Merkel a fourth term. But researchers say that this time, Russia isn’t the one doing the “meddling.”

Researchers claim that there is evidence that “right-wing groups in the United States” are behind the materials popping up on YouTube, messaging board sites like 4chan and Reddit, and texting service Gab.ai.

“So far we have not been able to track down any specific Russian activity,” said Simon Hegelich, a professor of political science data at the Technical University of Munich who has advised the German government about the threat of hacking and false information. Yet there is still an online dashboard which monitors “Russian propaganda” about the German election.

Hegelich also said that proving connections among sympathizers is extremely difficult and may never be conclusive. “A lot of the stuff we are seeing in Germany can be linked to, or is at least inspired by, the ‘alt-right’ movement in the U.S.,” Hegelich said, referring to the very loosely defined group.

But, according to USA Today, an analysis of 300 million tweets over the past six months by Hegelich and researchers at the Technical University of Munich shows Germany is a hotspot for posts that use the hashtag “#AltRight.”

A report published Wednesday by Hope Not Hate, a British anti-racism watchdog, concluded that the alt-right movement has “breathed life and youth back into formerly declining and dormant parts of the European extreme right.”

The report, based on an undercover investigation of far-right figureheads, found that extremist individuals, organizations, websites and forums on both sides of the Atlantic are increasingly engaging with each another and “weaponizing” the Internet.  – USA Today

So apparently, free speech is now “weaponizing the Internet.” This is exactly how propagandists get people to agree to their own censorship. Sandro Gaycken, the founder and director of the Berlin-based Digital Society Institute, said right-wing voices are trying to infiltrate conversations about the German election on Facebook and other social media platforms.

Oh, the horror! People want their voices heard and to speak their mind! It MUST be election meddling…

    Germany, once the economic powerhouse of Europe, is rapidly committing slow-motion suicide through their insane immigration policies that let in any turd-worlder who seeks “asylum.” Sound like anywhere you’ve lived recently…?

    Propaganda: is very dependent on one’s point of view. So who is the one who gets to :Sensor” propaganda?
    It is starting to remind me of pre WWII claiming we need to silence propaganda. The purpose of “free speech” is to hear from both sides, let the listener decide for himself what is propaganda. Once anyone is silenced it is only a matter of time until “free speech ” is no more. As witnessed by our “corporate News Media” which is very careful what it lets us see.

    Strange how they love globalism but hate it when we shares memes with Germany.

    Angela Merkel is a hack. Why would anyone on the “right” in the United States want her to be elected to a fourth term?
    Furthermore, the “alt-right” in America is a bunch of racists. Why would they want someone who has let Germany become a third world toilet through lax immigration policies continue to be the leader of the country?
    From my understanding, the “alt-right” is against any amnesty or refugee programs that allow these middle eastern refugees to flood the country.
    Obviously, they are doing the same thing as the American left did when Trump was elected. They are still blaming Russian interference for Trump’s victory.

    Germanistan now, when will you name it correctly lol
    Merkel has wrought a disaster or huge proportions with her Germany is Muslim now not German, as Obama would have done eventually when the Helldebeast Won, hallelujah she lost, like the loser she is
    Of course it is rigged to make her win again and again, and again and again, like groundhogs day for decent Germans who want their Country back

    Germany has been under Empire occupation from 1945 on.
    The German people do not have a Government, any more than the Americans have a government.
    All the evil leads back to the British Empire, which the USA is the military arm for, and Israeli is a British Empire outpost.

    Until Germans do something about it… I could care less.

    The Germans keep taking it and they do nothing.

    GERMANS You have 3 days to decide !

    Maybe it’s just people around the world, watching the news, reading the papers, talking to friends, who want to give the German people some advice. As most people around the world would like Germany to stay Germany, and not become another Venezuela. I have a friend who leaves for Germany today for Octoberfest. Something him and his wife has always wanted to experience, it will be interesting to hear how it was. I read an article yesterday that Malaysia cancelled it’s Octorfest because it offends their Muslim population, something we don’t want to see happen in Germany.

    Hitler is just “one” PROOF that a REAL Election in Germany has never happened, and NEVER will. No MORON is going to vote for Muslims to take over their Nation, is another PROOF of rigged elections. Unless the Germans are total morons, Nobody will vote for Muslim sympathizers. Does NOT happen. Start from square one, German People. EXECUTE these Globalist impostors running your Country.Then you can have a REAL Election.
