Hillary Clinton Blames “Fake LGBTs” On Facebook For Her Election Loss

 

We know Russian agents used Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and even Pinterest to place targeted attack ads and negative stories intended not to hurt just me but to fan the flames of division in our society.

Russians posed as Americans pretending to be LGBT and gun rights activists, even Muslims, saying things they knew would cause distress.

The Russians are still playing on anything and everything they can to turn Americans against each other.

In addition to hacking our elections, they are hacking our discourse and our unity. We are in the middle of a global struggle between liberal democracy and a rising tide of illiberalism and authoritarianism.

This is a kind of new cold war and it is just getting started.”— Hillary Clinton to the Cheltenham Literary Festival, addressing recent reports that Russians created fake LGBT Facebook pages.
