LOL I was about to post this.

 

Not to out oby, you understand, but since it gives the troll playbook, it would presumably act as an aide memoire. :dancing:

 

Mods might get a kick out of reading this article.

 “When there were black people rioting in the United States we had to write that US policy on the black community had failed, Obama’s administration couldn’t cope with the problem, the situation is getting tenser. The negroes are rising up.”

 

Ukraine was another constant topic. “That was always about the Kiev ‘junta’, how the poor people of Donbas are being bombed, how women and children are being shot, how Nato is to blame and Blackwater has mercenaries there.”

 

On Syria, Bashar al-Assad, its autocratic president, was praised as a “friend of Russia”. Closer to home, the team was ordered to laud domestic products like the Armata, the Russia army’s new main battle tank...

Reading this article, and the comments section on certain Hungarian websites, I'm now kinda paranoid my own government employs the same tactic.

 

But then I realize they have consistently proven to be incompetent at everything, and human stupidity knows no bounds. So I'd still assign a higher probability to the alternative theory of "no, their supporters are that dumb".

Can I tell you guys something 100 % true ....people really believe the Russian propaganda. It feeds a certain " anti-Western " sentiment that some people need to believe

 

I see it in South Africa all the time...for example  " The FBI is only investigating FIFA because it doesn't want Russia to hold the 2018 WC " ....people seem to ignore the rampant corruption in FIFA and just think its about some Cold War ideological affair

That is true, I doubt the current Hungarian government could implement something like this successfully. But the Russians certainly can

This is all anti-Western propaganda, aimed at destabilizing great Russian bear/leader Putin, who is only force that can keep Western Imperialism in check.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, off-topic, but I found new employment guys...

Could they subcontract?

 

Maybe oby could set up ... you could form an alliance, man. Make money.

On a more serious note, paid shills exist, even on 8chan of all places as well. Ukraine-crisis? Suddenly there was numerous threads about Mossad, Nato and American sniper-assassins and whatnot being truly behind the crisis and Crimea simply answered to aggressive tactics by the west. Problem in the middle east? Suddenly there is a huge influx of pro-israel threads were people were seemingly debating with themselves.

 

They were later exposed due to forgotting to reset their IPs or being part of larger botnets.

If you want Oby to appear you have to stare into a mirror and say his name 3 times.

Serious question, Sarex. Why do YOU think oby's posting behaviour _precisely_ matched the pattern for Kremlin-paid trolls?

I ain't denying that there are US/Russian paid internet trolls, but I am taking that article with a pitcher of salt.

 

As for Oby, the more I look at his post the more I think that he is making fun of Russia in a very subtle way, that or he is just a naive person who thinks that anyone will buy what he is selling.

every government, everywhere uses similar tactics to mind-control the citizens

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

In the US we prefer to spread our propaganda the old fashioned way, through high quality movies and popular video games.   :thumbsup:

I'll accept the point that the Telegraph is normally woefully short on journalistic integrity.

 

But if you are correct then - since oby's pattern exactly matches the pattern of a paid troll - the Kremlin is engaged in an elaborate system of self-mocking?

Well one would then conclude that he is just a regular unpaid troll, no?

Calling oby a paid troll again? Isn't this the 5th time this has come up?

 

And he doesn't work on you as you are all pretty ardently pro West, does that matter ? :lol:

And frankly, oby ain't a paid shill, he's just trollin' for biological waste material and giggles. Not particularly well imo, but you can't argue results and he certainly wads some people's panties. Generally though all yet another FAOusername: you're a troll lol! thread does is encourage them, if you're convinced they're a troll ignore them or Ignore them if you have no willpower, problem solved.
