Video of the day -- how they do it

This video is from 2017, but its message is newly relevant as another election season approaches.  The enemy got Trump elected last time by getting us to fight against each other instead of against them, and they're ready to roll out the same tactics this year, taking advantage of certain innate weaknesses in American culture.

That's why I have closed social media accounts. They were just bullshit.

I don't think I ever saw that video back when it first aired. But I don't watch a lot of late night talk shows.

Oh you know they’re gonna try and if people are as stupid as they usually are, they’ll probably succeed.
The amount of people I know that get their news from Facebook and Twitter is ASTOUNDING. ugh.
I usually think Bill is a little too full of it, but he’s right here...

This would be funny if it were not so serious and scary. This video could have been created this morning, it's so "on point". Thanks for sharing these insights, I had not seen it before.

I saw something on Politifact's Facebook page about fake info they helped facebook takedown. Maybe they are watching this time.

Lady M: I never had them.

Mary: That's the good thing about the internet -- it preserves everything for later.

Sixpence: All we can do is get the word out, so as many people as possible are aware of the problem.

Dellgirl: Maher has a knack for making scary things funny -- but they're still scary.

Mike: Facebook will watch this stuff better if they know we're watching them.
