The above comes from Some of the Popular Images and Themes the Russians Posted on Social Media, NY Times, December 17, 2018.
Just saw a post from a Facebook friend, advising people to think before they share. Don’t just blindly share ignorant memes/graphics, unless you can research and know it’s true. I added a comment, you should also wonder-
Who made it? Who benefits?
What grinds my gears is people sharing ignorant memes- w/o thinking- Where did that Meme originate? Not whether it’s true or not- most of them aren’t, just another form of spin or outright lies- on BOTH sides/GOP/DEM. – but Who made it?
The same folks who claim NO COLLUSION, or that still believe the RUSSIA HOAX, are sharing meme/graphics that aim to destabilize our elections, our system, that likely come from China/Russia. Remember, the more divided WE are- the stronger our enemies are. Moral of the story is… Don’t share stupid shit. (Pardon my French.)
