Hillary Clinton Trolls Shut Down Pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook Groups

Hillary Clinton Trolls Shut Down Pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook Groups

Some of the biggest pro-Bernie Sanders groups on Facebook were briefly taken down Monday evening in a targeted attack by Hillary Clinton supporters.

The groups Bernie Sanders Activists, Bernie Believers, BERNIE OR BUST, Bernie Sanders Revolutionaries, Bay Area for Bernie, Bernie Sanders 2016 Ideas Welcome, Bernie Sanders is my HERO, and Bernie Sanders for President 2016 were all taken down in the attack. The pages in question were reported to be down for about three hours, from 9 p.m. to midnight Monday night.

Collectively, these groups are home to more than a quarter million Bernie Sanders supporters, and some have been in existence for nearly a year, having been launched shortly after the Vermont senator declared his intent to run for president in 2015.

The groups were targeted by online trolls, who posted pornographic images and reported the groups to Facebook admins. Some legitimate Bernie supporters even reported seeing images containing pedophilia, according to reporting from Heavy.com.


WOW.

1. Facebook is a publicly traded mega-corporation.

 

How are you really going to rail about corporatism and corporate malfeasance while logging onto mega corporate facebook via your mega corporate iphone?

7. What are you attempting here? Supporters of your candidate did something very wrong, maybe illegal.

 

Despicable as shit. You will not be able to evade that fact by spinning some characterizations of what you think about Bernie supporters. It makes you look awful, you are blaming the victims and that's just vile.

just Sanders pages being black out.

You might want to dial it on the "very wrong, maybe illegal" stuff.

Reposting something that has been debunked, but doing so because it fits your political strategy is beneath you.

15. Further proof that many people just don't understand the tools they work with

It's not the first time this has happened to Facebook - or other sites as well.

But nooooo, it's all a conspiracy.

I don't regret my vote for Sanders in the MA primary, but I really dislike the way so many supporters act.
