Breitbart talks about the "Republican" imposters who call conservative talk shows pretending to be lifelong conservatives who are suddenly disgusted by the latest actions of their own party. They aren't Republicans. They are posers pretending to be conservatives to sow dissension in the ranks. They were first seen during the presidency of Bill Clinton when "seminar callers" would attempt to call the Rush Limbaugh show posing as Republicans who were "outraged" over the impeachment of Clinton.
A digital war has broken out, and the conservative movement is losing. Read the comment sections of right-leaning blogs, news sites and social forums, and the evidence is there in ugly abundance. Internet hooligans are spewing their talking points to thwart the dissent of the newly-out-of-power.
We must not let that go unanswered.
Other leftist activists have targeted conservative websites and blogs with preplanned hostile commentary for the same purpose. They are commonly called "Internet trolls" who invade conservative sites under false pretenses in order to derail discussion or to shut it down by the sheer volume of their attack. Breitbart notes:
Uninvited Democratic activists are on a mission to demoralize the enemy - us. They want to ensure that President Obama is not subject to the same coordinated, facts-be-damned, multimedia takedown they employed over eight long years to destroy the presidency - and the humanity - of George W. Bush.Breitbart notes that some conservative websites have shut off the comments section so they won't have to deal with these coordinated troll attacks.
It's important for us to understand our enemy and his tactics. Do read the article here.
