Instagram Unearths ‘Influence Campaign’ That Created Liberal ‘Resistance’

For months, we here at Constitution.com have been attempting to lay out the argument that this pedantic and silly “resistance” to the President is nothing more than a democratic voter registration initiative aimed at bolstering their imaginary “blue wave”.

There are a number of reasons why, but, most obviously is the fact that left is disarming themselves by the thousands through their misguided and troublesome “nuisance laws” infringing upon the Second Amendment.  If there was ever going to be any “resistance”, don’t you think that the left would be accumulating firearms?  Other than save a few lone nuts, this has not been the case.

No, this “resistance” has been, and always will be sham.  A concoction of marketing villains and their twisted lackeys.  A figment of the left’s imagination.  A Hillary Clinton fan club.

Today, we begin the unearthing process in earnest, as Instagram has detailed a coordinated political influence campaign on their platform that was aimed at manufacturing this faux-activist cabal.

Facebook announced Tuesday that it has removed 32 inauthentic Instagram and Facebook profiles and pages because the company believes they were part of a coordinated disinformation campaign.

“We’re still in the very early stages of our investigation and don’t have all the facts — including who may be behind this. But we are sharing what we know today given the connection between these bad actors and protests that are planned in Washington next week. We will update this post with more details when we have them, or if the facts we have change,” the company said in a statement.

Many of the named pages and accounts seem to espouse progressive or left-wing political messages. One page, “Resisters,” went as far as creating an event scheduled between August 10 and 12 called “No United the Right 2 — DC.”

About 2,600 Facebook users expressed interest in the event and more than 600 said they were attending, according to the company.

These phony accounts would then send real world “resistance” rats out into the world to wreak havoc:

Some images posted from “Resisters” included memes calling on President Donald Trump to resign from office while others posted images with feminist slogans. According to The New York Times, “coordinated activity was also detected around #AbolishIce, a left-wing campaign on social media that seeks to end the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.”

The pages in question were responsible for creating around 30 events since May 2017, with one event having “approximately 4,700 accounts interested in attending, and 1,400 users [saying] that they would attend.”

So much for the will of the people, eh?
