ah yes poor civility...I knew you well


TOP STORIESHillary Clinton’s Paid Troll PatrolHillary Clinton’s campaign has an answer for her online critics: One good troll deserves another. A task force of former reporters, bloggers, designers and others has been formed to "correct" criticisms of Clinton. And it's being paid for by a multimillion-dollar super PAC that, thanks to a loophole, works closely with her. Here's more about the brainchild of a onetime anti-Clinton operative turned Clinton confidant.

This is what China does: They have loads of people who will troll you here if you post an article or comment cricizing China... "encourage" by the government there.

so, are they aiming for the Trumpettes? Probably not. They are aiming for BernieBros, and using astroturfing to make her appear popular:

“It is meant to appear to be coming organically from people and their social media networks in a groundswell of activism, when in fact it is highly paid and highly tactical,” said Brian Donahue, chief executive of the consulting firm Craft Media/Digital.
a quick google for "Bernie Bros" shows them accused of hating women and living on the internet with nothing better to do than twitter evil comments at Hillary's march in step minions.

how dare anyone criticize her! She is a woman! You must hate her for being a woman (not because you disagree with her).

presumably she'll break down in tears if you are mean to her. (wonder how she'd respond to something like, say, a terrorist attack on an embassy at 3 am?)

So criticize her at your risk: The Minions will get you if you don't watch out!

at least BernieBros are doing it for free...
