Clinton’s Digital Task Force Breaks Barriers To Defend Her Donors

The super political action committee, Correct The Record, which has direct ties with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, launched a “digital task force” to push out “positive content” and respond to “negative attacks” and “false narratives” spread within “online progressive communities.” The super PAC also plans to use the “task force” to “thank” and show support for superdelegates, who the campaign contends are under attack by supporters of her opponent, Bernie Sanders.

The AP found “federal records, regulatory filings and correspondence showed that almost all the 82 corporations, trade associations and other groups that paid for or sponsored Clinton’s speeches have actively sought to sway the government — lobbying, bidding for contracts, commenting on federal policy and in some cases contacting State Department officials or Clinton herself during her tenure as secretary of state.”

Clinton was paid by corporations or groups with U.S. government interests 94 times. A third profited from government contracts during this same period. This opens her up to scrutiny that if she is elected president her decisions would be influenced by these corporations and groups, including those closely aligned with Wall Street.

-----------------

Also per the Article:
Correct The Record has spearheaded some of the most dishonest attacks and rumors against Sanders so far: Sanders supported Minutemen vigilantes, who tried to execute undocumented immigrants at the Mexico border, Sanders wants to “dismantle Obamacare,” Sanders planned to commit voter fraud in Iowa, Sanders opposed bailing out auto workers, and Sanders thinks gun violence is funny when the state of Vermont is directly responsible for fueling gun trafficking in New York (which is completely false).

-------------------
Now who is giving the RW fuel if a Dem candidate became president?

Wake up Hillary supporters. Unless you have the money to lobby her, she has bigger masters to support and not you or your liberal values.

1. More from the article:

 

"What is particularly troubling about the project to combat users on Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, and Instagram is that users may not realize they are targets of Correct The Record’s information operation. The project apparently has no plan to announce their membership in this task force. They will likely select users, who are popular, and go after them until those users are overwhelmed to a point where their expression of their opinions are drowned out by the task force’s response to their online activity.

Correct The Record may claim this type of project is necessary to defend against “Bernie Bros,” but numerous women, who support Sanders, have come under attack as if they have betrayed their gender by refusing to support Clinton. One Clinton supporter told a Sanders supporter to give up her “woman card” because her support for Sanders showed she “sucked” at being a woman. When actress and model Emily Ratajkowski expressed her support for Sanders, she was told to shut up and go back to being a hot woman. She was even asked to show her tits because that is the “spirit” of socialism.
"

"There would be no need for a “digital task force” if the Clinton campaign did not fear that Americans are learning too much about how Clinton is beholden to corporate and special interests, which will heavily influence her as president. They are tired of defending her against claims that she is too much of a corporate Democrat to be a true advocate for social progress if elected. They also do not want to continue to spend money fighting Sanders and his supporters so they are pulling out all the stops. Not only will this undermine campaign finance regulations, but it will effectively discourage and suppress political speech by numerous Americans.

9. Nice try but that's a call center recieving donations. Not an internet troll firm.

 

I would imagine most trolls work from home.

8. I believe I linked in another post where putin used the same lobbying firm through the Podesta group

 

I'd have to go look again. It was this morning when I was proving her Cayman Islands links to a duer who suddenly stopped talking to me when I provided links. I'm pretty sure giving proof meant that person put me on ignore...

Maybe I was talking to one one of Clinton's trolls.

5. Wanna know what's neat? They don't even need to pay for these trolls from campaign funds!

 

They use the funds they raised "to support downticket democrats" to pay for these psy-ops.

No wonder so many posters are vigorously defending the money laundering operation that is
