Russian Bots Attack Parkland Students

Vicious attacks on Parkland Survivor David Hogg are not going so save Fox News

Fox News host, Laura Ingraham has her hair on fire after mocking Parkland survivor David Hogg. David is a 17 years old, and Ingraham attacked him on air for not being accepted to the top four colleges.

David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)

Hogg has a 4.2 GPA and a 1270 SAT score and he has shown amazing grace and courage under fire leading the fight against the NRA for gun control. So, so what?

Ingraham’s criticism came amid a broader effort by NRA activists to discredit Parkland teens pushing for stronger gun-control laws.

In response, young David took to Twitter to tell supporters to call the companies that advertise on Ingraham’s Fox New and convince them to pull their ads… or have thousands of protesters call incessantly, jamming the phones and burning their business to the ground.

Within two days, a third of the advertisers on her show pulled their ads. Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé, Hulu, Jos. A. Bank, Jenny Craig, Ruby, Miracle-Ear and several other companies pulled their commercials… before the Phone Protest landed on their phones.

Russian Bots are attacking David Hogg in an attempt to save Fox News…

Parkland Students and the Resistance are fighting back. Activists are crippling business with a denial of service attack on Fox News and their advertisers.

Russian-linked Twitter accounts have rallied around the conservative talk-show host, who has come under fire. According to the website Hamilton 68, which tracks the spread of Russian propaganda on Twitter, the hashtag #IstandwithLaura jumped 2,800 percent in 48 hours this weekend. On Saturday night, it was the top trending hashtag among Russian hackers.

The website, which tracks 1,500 “political propaganda bots,” found that @ingrahamangle, @davidhogg111 and @foxnews were among the top six Twitter handles tweeted by Russia-linked accounts this weekend. “David Hogg” and “Laura Ingraham” were the top two-word phrases being shared.

Feeding gullible Americans with their Putin-dictated, Trump-supporting propaganda is a key strategy for Russian bots, which seize on divisive issues online to sow discord in the United States. Since the Feb. 14 Parkland shooting, which claimed 17 lives, Russian bots have flooded Twitter with false information about the massacre… to aid and abet the NRA, who support President Trump, who conspired with the Russians to rig the election, seize control of our government, and destroy our Democracy from within, turning America into a Russian based oligarchy in league with Putin. 

Ingraham later apologized, but David called Ingraham’s apology an insincere effort “just to save [her] advertisers.”

Young David called Ingraham a “bully” on CNN. “It’s disturbing to know that somebody can bully so many people and just get away with it, especially to the level that she did,” he said. “No matter who somebody is, no matter how big or powerful they may seem, a bully is a bully, and it’s important that you stand up to them.”

As powerful as Fox News may seem, the Phone Protest has sucked Fox News into a black hole that threatens to tear their business to pieces.

Fox News and their advertisers are trapped. When the denial of service attack lands on their business, they can’t answer their phones fast enough to clear the lines to keep their business running… Advertisers don’t want a horde of callers on their phones ripping their business to shreds. They have nothing to gain, and everything to lose. Not only does the Phone Protest disrupt their business costing them money upfront, but damage to their brand among young consumes does lasting damage. Sensible Corporations don’t want to become a casualty of war. They don’t want to be collateral damage in the denial of service attack on Fox News… not if they have any common sense and survival instincts.

Parkland Students joined by the Resistance are crushing Fox News with the Phone Protest.

Keep calling FOX Advertising Department. 888-369-4762. Mob phones and cost them MONEY. Keep calling advertisers and cost them MONEY. Put Fox News out of business until they get rid of these Trump propagandists… starting with Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Fox and Friends.    

Ingraham is as un-America as Trump is a traitor. She needs to go back to Russia where she belongs and take Fox News with her. She can be on State run TV in Russia praising Putin and his dictatorship instead of being on Fox News passing out propaganda in support of Dictator Donald Trump… America’s Russian-connected, Putin-controlled oligarch.
