GOP machine using YouTube 'reaction' videos targeted to black audiences.

They are tipping (as in paying $$) black reactors to feature appearances by Trump, Jordan Peterson, Sowell, and others. The more positively they react the more the wingnuts will subscribe and tip the reactor. The reactors subscription numbers are climbing by the hundreds of thousands.
More reactors will start doing this because its a moneymaker for them. Whether the reactor agrees with the speech or not, it gets out there and disagreement is blunted so as not to offend the people tipping. The clips of some of these reactors agreeing with the Republicans on any part of it will be further spread at social media sites. The reactions will seem legit to an unknowing viewer.
This is how they are going after voters in minority communities, and Id bet that DNC is still unaware.
This type of propaganda campaign can sway enough votes in crucial states because it goes under the radar and UNANSWERED.
GOP heavily targeted Latin voters in Florida and Texas with Q-style propaganda in 2020 and it worked for them, because it went under the radar and unanswered.
No Life Shaq has almost 4 million subs and I am sure he is not even close to the largest or most influential. I don't know that he is a part of this campaign but I sub him so he is one that I know.

with typical stereotype. Utter bullshit and completely hypocritical takes on leftists that gets spewed by ProudBoy types.
There are some deep-pocketed Republicans behind this campaign, no doubt about it.
Added the Doc Rich to original post.
just as they didnt take RW radio seriously in the 80s and 90s.
And frustrating. I live in a purple state where every vote is crucial to the outcome and the GOP machine fights like mamba snakes.
The requests usually start with Thomas Sowell.
The GOP must be paying them...Looks like in the fall of 2021 they were focused on music, then in 2022 they switched
Theyll pay these reactors a tip and get a huge payoff in return.
Its not a bad idea really. Of course nobody ever wants to fight like they do so it would never fly.
It doesn't pay to be a "reactor" who trashes the content they are tipped to react to.
I don't think so because his reactions to TFG are very NEGATIVE. They're not positive at all. Did the OP even hear this? For the love of reason, we are better than that.
Not just this one I used for an example, but, other reactors, as well. The point is the strategy of using music reactors by tipping them to spend time listening and spreading it by squeezing out any positive reaction. Look at playlists. Look at the shift. Its serious.
Also I didn't realize you were the source of the OP or I would have done what you suggest. We've both been here for the better part of forever (or since baby blm really was a baby!) and I know you do your research. I apologize for doubting you.
of this tactic
.and how quickly its happening.
I am a fan of reaction videos for music, and the political ones have been popping up like weeds on my feed.
who watches these long videos? I must have no patience because I'm not watching a 59 minute or a 20 minute reaction video by any "influencer".
That is a stat killer. Leaving early closing Youtube is a serious downvote that overrides everything.
