Trump Scheme to Suppress Black Votes Uncovered


A British investigation uncovers the extreme lengths the Trump campaign used to suppress Black votes in the 2016 presidential election...

From Channel 4
Channel 4 News has exclusively obtained a vast cache of data used by Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign on almost 200 million American voters.
It reveals that 3.5 million Black Americans were categorised by Donald Trump’s campaign as ‘Deterrence’ – voters they wanted to stay home on election day.
Tonight, civil rights campaigners said the evidence amounted to a new form of voter “suppression” and called on Facebook to disclose ads and targeting information that has never been made public.
Vast in scale, it contains details on almost 200 million Americans, among more than 5,000 files, which together amass almost 5 terabytes of data – making it one of the biggest leaks in history.
It reveals not only the huge amounts of data held on every individual voter, but how that data was used and manipulated by models and algorithms.
In 16 key battleground states, millions of Americans were separated by an algorithm into one of eight categories, also described as ‘audiences’, so they could then be targeted with tailored ads on Facebook and other platforms.
One of the categories was named ‘Deterrence’, which was later described publicly by Trump’s chief data scientist as containing people that the campaign “hope don’t show up to vote”.

There is a war between the fake jews and the white race, anytime I see white run jewish media, demonizing a white man, who is just as crooked as their ass. I know they are pissed he's not on code with them. Their propaganda don't faze me, I can fully use my own logic and reason without being emotional. I don't give a fuck about none of these fools, they will not be triggering my emotions. The jews have spent their entire time on this planet turning everyone against each other, they have demonized blacks in the media and to the entire planet, making everyone hate us but their time is coming and they will bow before us and beg forgiveness. I don't give a fuck about any of these white people, they are at war with each other, vote for whoever the fuck you please and leave it at that, no need to get triggered and emotional as right wing, left wing same bird. We got bigger issues to deal with, reparations in this bitch!!!

The way they making this shit seem like your vote counts while Trump straight gets his shit off on a daily basis knowing this race is fixed. We have not seen ignorance like this since drunk ass Bush Jr got elected again after finding them damn ballots that were unaccounted for. When the Republicans win the Election it is hell to wrestle them out of the White House. They not about to give that shit to Sleepy Joe and Verzus Mala. Shit is neck and neck with evil. If Mala and SJ win it will be years of hearing Nancy, AOC, the return of the Clintons (post house arrest) shit gon be crazy either way.

The "black vote" has been suppressed since before it was legal for black folks to vote. Don't fall for the okie-doke. Propaganda at it's finest.

Half the blacks voting for Biden the racist don't even know what his plans are for the country. Maybe because he don't have any. He's just your average empty lifetime politician.

@9:01 Exactly! They be lying on this man sooo much it's ridiculous! Everything is his fault. You see nobody is addressing the recent declassification of information which shows that Hillary Clinton is the one who approved a campaign plan back in 2016 to concoct the whole Russian collusion scandal. The whole thing was a gotdamn lie. That slimy b*tch! I'm so glad they executed her. I'll be glad when Trump is reseated so they can finally retire these clones and CGI images. These ninjas think these Democrats are sooo innocent. They are some dirty, lying, racist motherf*ckers! While y'all wanna call Trump racist, the real racists are part of the very Democratic party you programmed ninjas are affiliated with.

You're just as racist as Drumpf and Biden when you generalize ALL black people. For your-know-all ass, some of us are voting for the green party and other parties, or writing in a candidate.
So speak for yourself and bitches that YOU know.
RWS is full of you racist on here sprouting your bullshit.

���� all these white trolls on here acting like they are black. With black names and profiles pics. No job, but to troll. Same 5 people arguing with each other. Trump don't give AF about black people. Why has he not sent the FBI to investigate these cops yet? What has he done for black people? Please save them tired ass talking points. White people done FUd this comment section about 4 years ago. They maybe only 5 black people on this site. They trolls high jack every comment section with there foolishness. Snitch needs a moderater in here.

NPR just ran a story about how undecided voters are less than 1% of the voting population so the current tactic is to disenfranchise voters into not voting. They're flooding social media with trolls and bots talking about how they're not voting because their preferred candidate didn't win the primaries, about how nothings going to change and there's no point in voting. And the thing is, we know how social media works. People get stuck in these echo chambers and have those ideas reinforced over and over again by hundreds of different (fake) voices. It's not directly voter suppression, but it smells very heavily of it.

If you don't vote, you are saying you're fine with white supremacy.

If you don't vote, you are saying you are fine with an America of censored internet and increased surveillance.

If you don't vote, you are saying the rich should only get richer while the poor get poorer.

If you don't vote, you are supporting the suppression of POC, LGBT, and disabled or ill people as this administration pushes more and more sickeningly discriminatory policies against those groups.

If you don't vote, you are enabling the rise in violent gun crimes, since this administration only wants more guns in more untrained hands.

If you don't vote, you reward a petulant child and his army of sycophants who use YOUR money to line THEIR pockets.

If you don't vote, you are not allowed to be outrages or offended by anything that happens moving forward. Not by the freedoms we lose, the lives we lose, or the harm done to millions of people.

*thinks about how felons can't vote,

No, they can’t, unless they’re fortunate enough to get their rights restored, and that’s not fair.  Who can change the laws?  Elected officials.

*thinks about how the working class often have to choose between getting work that day or voting,

That’s not fair either, and all election days, both state and federal, should be holidays.  Who can make them so?  Elected officials.

*thinks about how black people and indigenous people couldnt vote until 55 years ago,

But they can now.  They’re enfranchised today.  Because people lobbied elected officials and won their right to vote.

*thinks about how the electoral college is still in effect and has more power than the actual popular vote,

It is in effect but I’m not sure it has more power than the popular vote.  Twice it has happened in my lifetime, and both times the popular vote was a squeaker either nationally (2000) or in a few key states (2016).  Democrats win when voter turnout is high.  And the Interstate Popular Vote Compact is almost a reality.

*thinks about​ how each state can set up their own arbitrary laws for voting, even at the federal level, thinks-*

Who sets the voting laws?  Elected officials.

If the prevailing attitude is that “nothing ever changes” or “voting never changes anything” then nothing ever will change.  We’re effectively a right-wing nation because elections over the last few decades have trended to the right because when voter turnout is low, the right wins in this country, and voter turnout is low in presidential midterm years.


If you want the country to look the way you want it to, you have to participate.  And yeah, “fair and free election” is a pretty ludicrous concept right now -- but that’s no reason to sit it out.

I am voting in November for RBG and for the people who needlessly died because of gross negligence by the federal government during this pandemic. And so that our ongoing recovery from this pandemic is managed by people who know what they are doing and know how to turn to experts.

The day I seek validation or acceptance outside of self, is the day I kill myself. How pathetic is someone's life to seek validation and acceptance from a complete random ass stranger on the internet. All because my opinion differs from yours? oh so you liked a few of my comments in the past and deemed me enlightened, so now because I don't vote how you feel I should "gasp" I'm no longer enlightened? LMMFAO nigga what the fuck does enlightened have to do with voting for Trump. I don't give a fuck about about either of these two white devils Trump or Biden. I am picking who I feel is the lesser evil, despite the racist jewish media and their narrative they are pushing to sway emotions. The only validation I seek is my own, I don't even seek validation from my children or family members, in fact I have never sought validation outside of self. As for the troll on here desperately chiming in on all things Niyabinghi, yo ass is more crazy than I am, how pathetic are you so triggered on a blog, like this shit is high school, ohhh don't talk to her she is crazy LMMFAO please kill yourself you and the other few lonely blog trolls who live for my acknowledgment every time you make a derogatory comment about me, hoping to trigger me I laugh at you crazy ass hoes, stay triggered.

This has been in the public domain for sometime and looks like its achieved its desired effect on some of the ppl in this forum.

Ultra far-right hedge fund billionaire and largest donor to Trump's election campaign Robert Mercer is the hidden face behind all this and just so happens to be a computer scientist also by trade.

He literally hacked democracy by pouring his $$ into data mining company Cambridge Analytica with the objective of capturing the psychological profiles of Facebook, Google and Twitter accounts.

The data analytic capabilities of Cambridge Analytica enabled him to split account users into groups and bombard them with emotive propaganda in line with his own persuasion. As well as the black population, he also targeted voters and fellow racists who desire America to be a white ethnostate.

His influence over the current government although unseen to the vast majority of the public is unquestionable. Both Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah were behind at least two now former political appointees of Trump, white nationalist Steve Bannon and Kellyann Conway.

He is highly dangerous to democracy in America as he's known as a free-market fundamentalist who virulently despises government, its institutions and so forth as business to such neoliberals should be free from all constraints i.e. regulations that are in place to protect the public like workers' rights.

He loathes the poor, wants all public services abolished - libraries, schools, social assistance/programs even pensions gone along with Medicaid and Medicare. He wants an America where the population has to fend for themselves with no safety net whatsoever, no public sector, everything privatized and at the mercy of a few super rich.

He donates generously to a vast network of right-wing think tanks who now have more influence over republican party policy than you could ever imagine and share much of the free-market ideology that he does. We all know the majority of the public would not be in favor of this but under Trump this is being accelerated at a blistering pace behind the scenes.
Should he win in November, the country will be unrecognizable 4 years from now, it's already well on its way to a fascist military dictatorship.
If crackdowns on protests using military force, attempting to gag press, reshaping the judiciary for personal advantage, inciting your base to go out armed to the teeth to attack those you've identified as the 'enemy' isn't alarming enough well then you're beyond help.

@6:03 No dummy, I'm melanated. With yo sheep ass. Ninjas like you believe everything the fake news tells you. Quit being a lazy ninja, and start doing your research! A good 99% of y'all on here don't read any of these classified documents that are released, nor do you research the laws these very people y'all vote for have supported. Most 9f y'all calling Trump a racist, are clueless to the executive orders that Trump has signed which support us. He's signed more executive orders supporting us melanated people than Obama did in 8 years. But all somebody has to do is get in front of a camera with a nice suit and tie or dress, and read whatever lies that come across that teleprompter, and you fools believe it. And they successfully get away with it because those that control the media know that you lazy fools aren't going to independently fact check sh*t. I love being melanated, but I can't stand y'all programmed n*ggas.

Thank you!!! at the most basic level they need to ask themselves why are yt's going so hard with one of their own? why are they publicly lynching Trump he's no more "racist and crooked" than the rest of them, go back and look at Biden's over 40 years in politics lol lazy ass niggas too lazy to even do basic research, just rely on the media to whip them up in an emotional frenzy.

@12:14 These ignorant n*ggas are annoying as f*ck! Wanna argue somebody up and down and get disrespectful like they done did some research, knowing they don't read anything outside of some sh*t on a gotdamn gossip site. All they do is regurgitate what they done heard a news anchor or somebody that sounds knowledgeable say, and repeat it as though it's factual.
