Hive Bots, The Think Tank Right, and a Post-Primary Reality

Sanders vs ClintonHive Bots, The Think Tank Right, and a Post-Primary Reality

by John S Doe and Steven D’Mused

WASHINGTON, DC — Supporters of the Hillary Clinton for Prez Fam feel it every time the bots do their Bern-it-to-the-ground routine. We all know how base the moves are coming from fellow liberals. Destructive gaming from the clickety-clacks of our progressive bros and sisters stirring up disharmony and chaos at what is likely the most tenuous election cycles since the lead-up to the Civil War.

Troll HunterThe mis and disinformation that Karl Rove’s America Rising PAC distributes like they’re Satan’s publicity firm has fed and propped up the anti-Hillary campaign that’s run concurrently with the Republican Clown Car extravaganza. If you’re a fan of NBC’s the Blacklist, imagine two floors of the Sears Tower filled with seemingly endless cubicles filled with “Troll Hunters” analysts playing cyber ops.

The hive at America Rising (as well as their cousins at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the Heritage Foundation) spend hundreds of millions of dollars shapes reality like it’s a dark commodity. They utilize software that allows each analyst to manage scores of Twitter and Facebook false-profiles simultaneously. They swarm in super-organized campaigns to influence popular opinion through the social media we’re all loyally addicted to. They have been campaigning hard against Hillary with these techniques for nearing a decade.

Their usurping of the Bernie for President campaign is an important aspect of it. Sanders isn’t more than a pawn on this game board, but he’s become a willing victim to it, poor guy. From the alliance between the ill-intended and ill-fated “Run Warren Run” campaign’s chief exec being hired by SandersCo; to the swarming Libertarian takeover / takedown seasoned through their prior decimation of the Occupy Wall Street movement is their playbook. It’s a surgical strike hidden boldly in plain sight. The right wing neoconservative super-brand is presented as a sequel pulp grindhouse dollar movie follow up to their past cons — their anti-heroes donning deep blue masks to inspire rot from within. America loves sequels and has an abominably short memory.

The Sanders campaign isn’t some right wing conspiracy any more than Trump’s campaign is a Clinton Foundation black op. But, it is targeting low-hanging young progressive idealist fruit and knocking them out the tree with planted false information through a business model that encourages it. Bernie isn’t in collusion with Rove, but his decentralized “organic grassroots” style of poor-man’s campaigning leaves the most fertile soil for this kind of campaign imaginable.

The drones in this conscripted gang of followers is custom-designed to be a cross between the old Naderites that took down Al Gore; and the Tea Party that was reared to be the same breed of activated extreme.

TeabaggersThat’s not to say “Bernie Bots” are Teabaggers. Different kinds of bread, they just rise with the same yeast. Strange, unsavory bedfellow wolves marching in sheep’s clothing. They’re not bad people. They’re just disillusioned progressives. They’re angry that in the Citizens United era of legalized, celebrated bribery, none of the people they trust to elect are fighting for their common good. I understand their angst and distrust.

Even if we don’t know exactly how, we know exactly that they’re being led on a path away from who Hillary Clinton really is by a right wing pied piper. We all know it, but we can’t communicate it in any kind of direct way they will allow themselves at this point to comprehend or allow into their stream of consciousness.

They have to right their own course.

They have to have space. When kids are figuring out where the edges of the box are and testing limits, you don’t crush their efforts. I told everyone I know in the first days of Hillary’s campaign that we shouldn’t answer the Sanders supporters’ slaps with bats to the noggin. We’re liberals — liberated. We’re kind. We’re the good ones. We should just post positive news and clips and historical factoids in homemade info-graphics. Stuff like that. When Hillary wins, we don’t want to have dishonored HER by causing strife in her living room.

The Bear JewI’m not preaching. I’m kind of a Bear Jew kind of negotiator in political forums. (So you know in case you don’t, the Bear Jew is a reference to a character in “Inglorious Bastards” who had a particular argument technique). I’m always reminding myself not to be a mid-brained caveman. Little room for idealism in politics. Treat others as you’d want done, because we’re all of us striving for the same ideals. WE should all take shelter under a safe tent in the storm a’coming.

Hillary will be our next POTUS. Help leave a place at the table for all people. Don’t push anyone away even if it would be pushing back.

I have done a metric ass-ton of things through my personal and professional trek across my nows and thens. I've worked in politics in more than a couple handfuls of US Senate and Congressional districts across the country. I'm a domestic wonk out the box. Through my work in the electoral mafia, I've lived many a parallel career. I tendered outright in 2006, but that's a story inside a story within a tale for none other time or other. For a lot of my years trench-side, I was fortunate to be able to work parallel in a managerial capacity for creatives. Now, I am able to have come out the closet, so to speak. I'm able to be managed instead of owning the wheel. For the first time in my life, I am blessed to let others manage my trip steps and bounds through the briar patch of publishing. Now, Steven D'Mused can harvest his own creative bounty. It's a good day. I journal here at Magnana Mouse to help my old friend John; to share my experience in and knowledge of the dark web of US political electioneering. This is a place for my activist self to write at a podium near the metaphorical ballot box. Hope I am able to add a valuable voice to Magnana Mouse. Thanks for reading and thanks for CARING to read into the truth. Let reality reign and joy flow. Get out the vote, no matter how you do it. Just do it. Fight for your right to party, my brothas and sistas. No rules in street fighting. Blood and balls. There is only winning and dying anymore. WIN.

  1. Think I’ll head over to the Sears Tower today. What 2 floors do you say?

    • Haha. Go, the view from the tip top suite is phantasmagorical. But, don’t look for America Rising or any of the other Right Wing think tank brigade HQ’s. They spend their money a lot more wisely than those rents. On near-minimum wage college undergrads and delusional dreamer young Republicans (them chumps don’t age into adult-table participation till they’re in their 30’s.

      Nah, just used “two floors of the Sears Tower” to scale it for you. The buildings these tools exist in are in office parks and are rarely more than a couple stories high. No great views for the hate-slave wannabe operatives.

      Thanks for reading, and double-thanks for chiming in.

  2. Those poor misled little hive bots have taken on the ugly smears and outright lies that Rove is feeding them. They have no problem attacking icons like Gloria Steinem, Billy Jean King and John Lewis for daring to endorse Hillary Clinton. They seek to shut down dissent and they are trying to convince their followers to back an attempt to blackmail the Democratic Party into making Sanders the nominee whether he wins or not. They are the tea party of the left and they would destroy the party by purging its center. Don’t trivialize them or coddle them.

Whatcha thinkin'?
