Facebook has been crowing about finding 32 “Russian-backed” accounts seeking to “sow division” among Americans. Only despite their over-confidence in sussing out these Kremlin-backed miscreants, they got it wrong. They shut down a page managed by real Americans who were organizing a counter-protest against a white nationalist group. Who does Facebook rely on to clean its pages of foreign government influence? An organization that itself is backed by foreign governments! RPI’s Daniel McAdams is interviewed:
Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity and co-Producer/co-Host, Ron Paul Liberty Report. Daniel served as the foreign affairs, civil liberties, and defense/intel policy advisor to U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, MD (R-Texas) from 2001 until Dr. Paul’s retirement at the end of 2012. From 1993-1999 he worked as a journalist based in Budapest, Hungary, and traveled through the former communist bloc as a human rights monitor and election observer.
