Trump won the election by a margin of like 80,000 votes that just happened to swing the EC in his direction. Despite losing the popular vote by millions.

Hacking millions of votes would be difficult, but a few strategic hacks combined with targeted propaganda? Much easier. And the EC lets that decide the election.
That's amazing math you have there.
No math involved kiddo, just pure facts.

Dat klikb8t... What they're describing aren't hacks, it's simply good ole propaganda transposed to the online world.

And the irony is, the article itself is propaganda by misleadingly labelling propaganda as "hacking".

This is a good watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1CrbHUeAV4 Six minutes of your time.

IMO Seth Rich was the leak. Not Russia. It just as likely wasn't a remote hack. The time stamps on the files indicated it was a local leak and the leaker was murdered for exactly that reason.

Probably. Russia is only #2 at hacking elections.

It's interesting though how our Electoral College makes us so vulnerable to interference from other countries. Trump won the election by a margin of like 80,000 votes that just happened to swing the EC in his direction. Despite losing the popular vote by millions.

Hacking millions of votes would be difficult, but a few strategic hacks combined with targeted propaganda? Much easier. And the EC lets that decide the election.

The solution to the toxicity of identity politics surely isn't to add white identity politics to the mix.

Yes, but only morons pay attention to these troll armies and we already know how they vote anyway. Their influence is massively over exaggerated. No, the reason the Dems managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was because of their insistence of Hillary being the one and screwing over Bernie as they did it. They just knew better than everyone else...and look where it got them.
