The Brooks Brothers Riot 2.0
Outside the Broward Supervisor of Election's office, a crowd of pro-Trump agitators are banging on the door to be let in. At this moment, the entire world is watching Broward County. They're counting the critical last votes in an historic race for Florida Governor & Senator.
But I'm just there to watch the crowd when it hits me — their sole purpose is to disrupt the democratic process here in Florida. They don’t want to debate. They want to intimidate their way into power. They push to be let inside the election office. They shout demands into the air for the vote count to stop. They spread rumors that Hillary Clinton herself is illegally stealing this election.
After speaking to a few pro-Trump agitators, it becomes clear this weaponized fringe was mobilized via Facebook micro-targeting. But by whom & why? Further research revealed some of the perpetrators: dark money GOP operatives. It actually wasn’t hard to figure out as they are openly bragging about their strategies on social media.
This was not a spontaneous protest. This gang of anti-democratic thugs were deliberately radicalized, organized, & activated by dark GOP forces: they were told where to show up, and what to do. These are not concerned citizens. They are pawns in a larger political chess game.
