Surprise, surprise! Barack Obama social media – his Twitter feed and Facebook page – are driven by just a handful of trolls. What looks like hundreds of thousands of supporters is really just a couple of hundred people and their sock puppets.
We’ve got President Troll supported loudly by troll supporters. What a shock.
If you’re a regular commenter on political sites you’ll see that the Obamaphiles tend to follow a very distinct pattern of cutting and pasting the same comments over and over, and those comments often show up under multiple posters. It turns out that the Obama supporters are engaging in sock puppetry, creating fake user IDs to make it appear that there is more support for an idea than there really is.
Americans began heading anew this weekend to President Obama’s official Obamacare Facebook page to gather information on the new round of health care enrollment, share their experiences shopping for insurance on the federal exchange and voice their opinions on the president’s signature domestic achievement.
However, what some would view as a robust marketplace of ideas is actually controlled by just a few, an analysis of the Web page shows.
Sixty percent of the site’s 226,838 comments generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team.
Personally, we think is simply a duplication of the 2012 election results. A handful of supporters showing up lots of times. Zombie voting, if you will.
The ObamaCare website is a clone of the President’s OFA Twitter feed. He appears to have about 43 million followers. Researchers at Barracuda, a computer security company in Campbell, California, found that about half of those “followers” were fake. In the name of accountability and transparency Organizing for Action declined to comment on Barracuda’s findings.
You really should read the whole article, the Washington Times has done an outstanding job of investigative journalism. The bottom line, the President’s overwhelming social media presence is every bit as phony as everything else about this President. He’s grubered* the American people now for about eight years and we’ve still got twenty six months to go.
We really think that history won’t be kind to President Present. He’ll likely be nothing more than a footnote, the first – and perhaps last – black president. He’ll be ignored by historians, who are largely liberals, because his record is so deceitful that they won’t be able to cover it up so they’ll just ignore it.
Kind of like in ancient Egypt when Pharaoh cast someone out of court and had all mention of them chipped from the histories or when Stalin had people photoshopped out of official pictures.
A fitting end for an empty suit pretending to sit in an empty chair. Clint Eastwood was right on the money.
