Hillary Clinton sees you, fake Facebook gays

“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 phoney LGBT Facebook pages.

    Look. Hillary is talking about Mo bro and all his many sock puppet names.

    • leobaga

      You do know Trump rallies always full, right? Whereas Hillary had to pay people to attend her rallies. The Russian collusion is a hoax because the dem can’t win election anymore. LOL

    • dinard38

      @leobaga
      Well, at least Hillary didn’t lie about crowd size, like Trump did about his inauguration crowd size being the largest EVER!!!!!

      And who cares if Trump’s masturbatory rallies are full. He only hold rallies in areas where he knows he has a lot of supporters. Why won’t he hold a rally in CA? IL? His own state of NY? Nah. He goes to the south or WV. And even his supporters are showing signs of wariness. A lot of his supporters walked out of his rally in AZ.

      I can remotely agree with you on the Democrats. They need to get their act together, but they are far from ‘dead’. The republicans have both the Senate and the House, but still can’t pass any legislation due to the civil war going on within their party. Clashes with the right, the far right, the far far right, the alt-right, and the Tea Party makes it a bit difficult to get anything done in DC. So the Republicans need to get their act together as well.

  • KaiserVonScheiss

    HAHAHA.

    Yep, it’s everyone else’s fault. Russia, Russia, Russia!

    No, you ran a horrible campaign, lady. You doubled down on identity politics and it was you who made the alt right so well-known. Before your little speech hardly anyone had ever heard of them.

    Do you remember when your campaign labelled Pepe the Frog as a symbol of white nationalism? LOL. That was classic!

    But my favourite is election night — when you lost Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

    • DCguy

      Awww, how adorable, one of Mo Bros sock puppet screenames wants to talk about what a “Terrible Campaign” she ran.

      So since she beat Trump by 3 million votes that would mean he ran an even worse one?

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      @DCguy

      She didn’t beat him at all. That would require winning. She lost. The popular vote doesn’t matter and has never mattered.

    • ChrisK

      I’m sure you guys are very glad for the archaic no reason to have today electoral college since it’s the only way to get the Presidents you like in these days.

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      @ChrisK

      I’m a monarchist, so if I had my druthers there wouldn’t be a president.

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy and @ChrisK

      The popular vote does not determine who wins the election. That would be like saying the winner of chess is the person with the most pieces on the board or the winner of Blackjack is the one who has the best Poker hand.

      If you are against the democratic systems in this country, then you also must think President Obama was an illegitimate President / Presidential nominee because Hillary Clinton “beat” him in the primaries via popular vote. Yet he went on to win the nomination and the Presidency

    • leobaga

      @DCguy and @ChrisK are soo dumb. It’s hilarious. Keep crying freaks, it won’t change anything – Trump is still president — a great one too. Dow just hit 23,000 for the first time. A MA ZING!

    • tham

      Ahh Russian bots…I have this fantasy of this cute in the closet Russian poster…it’s a decent government job.

      Then he comes on these gays sites “pretending” to be gay…talking up Trump, down playing the Russian attack and collusion.

      Ahh poor Igor…

    • ferraria

      You’re monarchist? Well, unless you want Putin to be your King, then I suggest you move the the UK. We’re all monarchists in the UK.

    • GayEGO

      Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million votes and Trump knew she would win them so he rigged the electoral vote because he said cheating is what a smart businessman does.

  • mhoffman953

    This lady is pathetic

    • DCguy

      Says the guy who claims the biggest reason to support Trump is that he’s probably lying about everything he says.

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy

      I never claimed that. This article doesn’t even mention Trump. You can’t defend Hillary Clinton without the usual, “yeah, but Trump…” or “how adorable another one of ______’s screen names”. You need to be more original

  • JaredMacBride

    Who is this hypocrite kidding? She had bots all over social media. Probably they were designed by her good friend Harvey Weinstein.

    • PinkoOfTheGange

      The social media platforms all disagree with you as does Trump’s social media guru, Justin McConney.

      So there are only 2 reasons to post sch easily disproven lies: she i right and you are complicit, or you are a fool.

    • mhoffman953

      @PinkoOfTheGange

      JaredMacBride is actually right. She employed the help of David Brock to create Correct the Record which utilized bots and paid people to go online and type whatever talking points they wanted to push. His remark about Weinstein was obviously in jest but everything else was true.

  • JLJ

    LOL. What b*tchy little queens. Find something worthy to do with your pathetic little lives. Dissing each other on Queerty (behind fake names) make you look douchy.

    • ChrisK

      Brian, brian, brian. Another name, another day ending in Y.

  • Jaxton

    Hillary should concentrate on keeping her marriage united instead of complaining about the free will of the American people.

    • leobaga

      She’s still married?

    • tham

      Oh I love it when the Russian bot has bad English. It’s just so adorable

  • Brody

    So, it’s still everyone’s fault but Hillary’s that she lost.
    #LiberalLogic

    • Xzamilloh

      No, it’s Clinton’s logic. Or is Trump a liberal? Trump, who stalled on Obamacare repeal and blamed everyone but himself for it, even though as the leader of the free world, the buck stops with him? How’s THAT #LiberalLogic from Mr. Everyone I Hate Is A Nazi Fake News Trump? Sound familiar?

    • GayEGO

      It is not a matter of fault because Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million which Trump knew she would win, so he rigged the electoral vote because he says cheating is what a smart businessman does.

    • Brody

      Xzamilloh –
      Um, I believe that’s what you call “deflection.” My comment wasn’t about Trump’s ability to get anti-Trump Democrats on board with his agenda, it was about Hillary’s constant attempts to blame everyone but herself for her loss.

      Gayego –
      Now the excuse is that Trump rigged the election?
      Holy shit, the conspiracy theories are reaching critical mass in Lefty Land.

  • Xzamilloh

    This is so damn stupid. Really, Clinton? Even if Russia did use Facebook ads to target voters… so what? This is just more from a woman who has gone on record to blame sexism, misogyny, Russia, Trump, Bernie and Bernie bros, the media (that’s effing rich, pun intended)… everyone but herself? Amazing how someone can lack self-awareness when her book’s title question has the answer right under it.

    • mhoffman953

      @Xzamilloh

      Even her latest fall seems like she’s lying. She alleges she broke her toe while “running down the steps in heels while drinking a coffee” which caused her to fall backwards.

      First off, I doubt Hillary runs. Second, she mostly wears flat shoes and if they are heels, the heel is very small. Third, I never heard of someone running down the steps and falling backwards. You think you’d fall forward. Lastly, who breaks their toe from falling backwards while going down steps?

      She probably was drunk or passed out again

    • Ronbo

      Yes, only Emerica can provide world-wide propaganda. Facebook is for-profit but they can ONLY sell advertising services to establishment-approved propaganda groups, like Correct The Record, an establishment owned and operated entity.

      Be wary now that Google is “channeling” their services for patriotism and the deep state. So far, liberal sites like AlterNet are being de-emphasized.

  • tham

    I love it when the Russians come on here trying to convince gay men that “everyone likes Trump, and hates Hillary, so you should too”

    It’s such a wonderful waste of your time…be honest, You’re here for the photos. And you just post this fodder so you don’t get in trouble.

    • mhoffman953

      Translation: “Everyone who I disagree with and every person who doesn’t like Hillary is from Russia” – tham

    • Brian

      I love that there are people still so entrenched up Hillary’s ass that a year after the election they are still spouting her party line about the Russians.

    • tham

      Da Comrade.

      You only come on here when it’s Trump or Hilary and you all write in that strange choppy English (like using the word homosexual a lot).

      Guys, this isn’t Facebook. You are not convincing one gay guy that Trump “loves” them.

      You are, however, absolutely convincing gay guys that Yes, Russia did hack us…and they’re still at it.

    • mhoffman953

      @tham

      “you all write in that strange choppy English”

      I think you should take a look at your first response just a little further up which would be an example of choppy English (i.e. randomly capitalizing “You’re” in the middle of a sentence, starting a sentence with “and”, etc).

      It’s always funny when someone who can’t write properly tries to become the grammar / spelling police on others. However, that’s beside the point.

      The point is that you and many others can’t defend Hillary without the usual, “but Trump…” or the multiple screen name conspiracy or “Russia, Russia, Russia”. You’re being defensive because you know Hillary is a garbage politician and can’t be defended, so you’ll deflect hoping the people you disagree with will go away.

    • Brody

      So Russia hacked us and released info on the C-word (Clinton) . . . okay, I’ll give you that.
      The end result? America got to see a side of Mrs. C-word that they otherwise would not have, so if anything, we should be thanking them for enlightening us. I’m quite certain you wouldn’t have objected to any dirt “the Russians” might’ve dug up on President Trump during an election.

    • Brian

      So a year after Hillary lost, the Russians are targeting her, in the Queerty comment section of all places, because….why exactly?

    • Brody

      Brian –
      Of course the Russians have infiltrated Queerty’s comments.
      It’s ridiculous to think they would try to permeate our intelligence by going through, say, the CIA, when they can just come on Queerty to challenge the comments of our nation’s greatest liberal thinkers, like GayEGO and tham.

  • Ronbo

    Hillary’s entire economic agenda WAS the Republican agenda… keep supporting the rich and they will keep supporting you. But they don’t.

    Let’s not forget that Hillary was CRITICAL in the pushing and passing of the unconstitutional laws enshrining speaking as gay as ILLEGAL (DADT) which increased the expulsion and imprisonment of GLBT service members.

    Don’t allow these pro-choice-ish Republicans, destroy the party from the inside! Hillary encouraged Bill to NOT veto DOMA! Instead she admited that she encouraged him to go along and work with the Republicans. Hillary didn’t want to upset the establishment and give GLBT the right to marry.

    Until economic neoliberals are removed from the Democratic party we will lose… even if neoliberal candidates win! No more Republicans in sheep clothing.

  • GayEGO

    The real deal is that Trump knew Hillary would win the popular vote, which she did by 3 million, so he rigged the electoral vote because he says cheating is what a smart businessman does!

    • Brian

      Oh this is rich. Please explain how the electoral vote was rigged by Trump.

    • mhoffman953

      @GayEGO

      You posted that same phrase 3 times in this topic. What is your source of that claim?

  • Luna1979

    Has anyone thought about trying to work with Trump on our issues? I wouldn’t let my hate for someone stop my own progress. The Christian right has his ear, but why? I honestly don’t think he gives a crap about them, but they’re his biggest support. We’re all sitting back complaining to each other and the media has dared anyone to get near him or they’ll get cooties. He’s swayed by his supporters, so why not try to get some stuff on the table ourselves? For all his twittering and rhetoric, I don’t think he would want to make public enemies with us. If it turns out I’m wrong, then really what did we lose?

  • o.codone

    America is tired of Hillary Clinton. Her moment came and went several times. The universe has been coaxing her off the stage since the election, but she isn’t listening. She insists that her moment is now, or that her moment is ahead of her. It’s not Hillary, seriously, I wouldn’t lie to you. We are weary of you. Weary of your politics, your antics, your stories, your policies, your books, your colleagues, your husband, your foundation, weary of YOU. Pack it up baby, stick a fork in it, it’s over. Stop embarrassing yourself. Go for that walk in the woods, put your feet up, play with the grandchildren, invite your friends over for a game of gin rummy. Nobody is listening. Nobody cares. We’re done.

  • Knight

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiight….every LGBT commenter with a legitmate grievance against Hillary Clinton’s policies is either a Russian or a Bot. Let’s forget she accepted millions of dollars from the Saudi govt while claiming how much she champions human rights, equality and women’s rights. Let’s forget her benefactor, Harvey Weinstein raped and assaulted an innumerable amount of women at this point while she and her cohorts knew and did nothing. Let’s pretend she was not trying to overthrow the legitimately sovereign government of Syria and advocated arming “rebels” for this exercise and most likely would have started yet ANOTHER foreign war for the American Industrial complex. Yeah…just chalk all of that up to fake Russian bots. No LGBT could EVER have anything negative to say about her.

    Oh…and PS, she’s a closet lesbian who STILL doesn’t have the courage to come out. But that’s OK…because….Democrat an stuff.
