‘Stop the steal’ disinformation campaign connected to Roger Stone

'Stop the steal' disinformation campaign connected to Roger Stone 1


It is an internet battle cry: Stop the Steal has swept across inboxes, Facebook pages and Twitter like an out-of-control virus, spreading misinformation and violent rhetoric — and spilling into real life, like the protest planned for DC this weekend.
But while Stop the Steal may sound like a new 2020 political slogan to many, it did not emerge organically over widespread concerns about voting fraud in President Donald Trump's race against Joe Biden. It has been in the works for years.
Its origin traces to Roger Stone, a veteran Republican operative and self-described "dirty trickster" whose 40-month prison sentence for seven felonies was cut short by Trump's commutation in July.
Stone's political action committee launched a "Stop the Steal" website in 2016 to fundraise ahead of that election, asking for $10,000 donations by saying, "If this election is close, THEY WILL STEAL IT."

    Trumpflakes are real

  2. Of course the Penguin is trying to help the Joker

  3. Of course Trump was going to pardon Stone. He needed him for his campaign.

    • AOC and Sanders are not socialists, they are social-democrats., big difference. Still, what’s wrong with jobs for all, healthcare for all, controlling surplus and demand to better suit our needs? What’s wrong with workers ruling instead of lawyers, business owners and other capitalists? Sure, capitalism was an advancement over feudalism, but it’s usefulness has passed. It’s time for all capitalists, including AOC and Sanders to be replaced by the working-class for the betterment of us all.

    • @John F Jobs for all? That means shipping our jobs to Mexico and China. I read between demonrat lies well.

    • @Jka Vill Sooo,,, what does your post mean?

    • @Jka Vill <<----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BOT, IGNORE

    • @Jka Vill Get lost, QAnon nutcase.

  4. I sure wish someone would tell Roger he and all of his buddies are just not relevant anymore. Creating a catchy phrase is hardly proof.

      Yep, this catch phrase is not going to work. Biden won, and that’s it!

    • @Jka Vill ok komrade keep it up from Siberia

    • …sure wish someone would feed him his hat 😝..🤧..😷

    • I went to high school with his granddaughter, and my younger brother was in the same athletics as her brother (Stone’s grandson). I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the granddaughter, my acquaintance, is a Bernie-loving leftist who is outstanding. The bad news is that her brother idolizes his grandfather and is basically aspiring to be a Roger Stone 2.0.

    • It’s not about proof… It’s a cash grab.

  5. Georgians, I am so proud of you. To think, your upcoming vote could result in such positive change – not just for Georgia, but for America, and for the World. *_The idea that your individual vote has such great power is just staggering to me. Please vote Warnock & Ossoff !_*

  6. The speed with which Trump’s election lawsuits are getting thrown out is the real Operation Warp Speed.

    Pyramid Schemes to steal money from followers. 🤣

    Proving once again, this is less a presidency and more of a production. It’s theater. Simple and plain.

  11. Trump’s got some nerve to cry “fraud” at the Democrats while he’s had a political operative on his payroll for both his campaigns who refers to himself as a “political dirty trickster”.

    Why don’t you “stop and get real” you lost and let’s move on lol 😂 scoreboard is Biden 306 – Trump 232 smh 🤦‍♂️

    Wait, are you staying Stone didn’t learn his lesson after that pardon? No, that can’t be!

  14. LMAO! His fashion icon is definitely, The Penguin. Lol Clown.. Lol 🙄🙄🙄🙄

  15. GOP attempts to overthrow the constitution are treason

  16. “American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of Truth and fact. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more power and money” Henry A Wallace USVP 1944

  17. It’s ironic that “Stop the steal” is literally trying to steal the election.

  18. I’m convinced Roger Stone has no human qualities and should be put out of our misery!

    This is all about scamming money from stupid people.
