The question that goes unasked is that if $100,000 gets Russia that kind of influence, what does more money get? Or are we to believe that Russia is the only one that spent any sum of money on elections through Facebook?

What about China? Or Israel? Or the Saudis?

What about the Koch brothers? What about the Clinton Foundation? What about Soros?

Once you open up that Russia conspiracy theory vein, every other one should be equally valid.

When you think about it critically, Russia's meddling gets lost in the noise.
Good post m8. Didn't the Saudis give $20M to the Clinton Foundation? Yet we had a special counsel over Russia and front page headlines for 2 years.

They’re using using monetised social media channels to claim censorship. It’s clever marketing.

By having Facebook and Instagram bannings, which means they lose hundreds of thousands of followers, and dont\'t have access to those social media streams...
Your conjecture is still that this is a marketing ploy...where they will have less and less and less attention and reach as the weeks and months go on? But all just a clever marketing ploy??

You have never run a business have you?

Have a look at the views for PJWs video. His regular amount of views in 4 days. About being censored. To go alongside his other monetised videos about being censored.

I dont know who pjw is... but if he was censored or deleted on Facebook and instagram and there ia social media chatter about it is obvious more people would tune into his youtube or another youtube to get the gossip.
Those viewing numbers wont sustain and he and others are still left without an avenue to followers in the hundreds of thousands on two of the main spcila media platforms.
No audience... no revenue

I really don't understand the motive of this thread, other than to troll conservatives over being censored by social media. The fascist Left can't win a logical discussion on the broader picture of world politics so all they can do is resort to censorship and trolling. All you shallow minded people take a bow!

"McHugh found sincerity. But she does not seem to have found a stable political home. Without stable employment, McHugh now struggles to afford her diabetes medication. The left does, in fact, host a great variety of conversations about health care, universal basic income, and employee protections—measures that might benefit even the most problematic white woman, such as McHugh, regardless of whether the left trusts her redemption arc. The right offered her the opportunity to troll until it could offer her nothing else. McHugh is the story of conservatism at the height of its power in this century. Not the alt-right, conservatism. The message stands: Get out while you can."

Nobody hear is defending the Clintons. The entire US political infrastructure is rotten to the core, and Trump is as bad as anyone.
Where is your proof that Trump is as bad as anyone? After a 2year investigation trying to unearth anything bad about him YOU GOT NOTHING! It's almost fair to generalize and say that ALL you Lefties backed Hillary and Obama in but now after all the rumors from those pesky conspiracy theorists are starting to ring true, you distance yourselves from Obama and the Clintons and make out like you were never that sold on them when you were completely but you still have the gall to ridicule 'conspiracy theorists' for being right about them? Could it be that you are trying to find some floating debri from the sinking ship that you scattered from? Good luck!
