Left Using Sock Puppetry to Push Civilian Disarmament

Gee, it’s almost as if there’s no one behind the civilian disarmament movement but the professional left and paid “volunteers.” First it was Progressive USA offering the princely sum of $9-$11 an hour for people willing to work to end gun violence. Oh, and don’t forget the purple-shirted thugs bussed into Albany to oppose a pro-gun right demonstration. Now, “A Texas Republican on Monday said President Obama’s gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter. Rep Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don’t exist.” Could it be that America really isn’t on the side of gun controllers? Say it ain’t so, Double Barrel Joe! . . .

As thehill.com is reporting, Stockman’s found Potemkin Twitter accounts generating tweets including the #WeDemandAVote hashtag the Gun Grabb-in-Chief asked concerned citizens to use when sending tweets to their congresscritters.

“Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud,” Stockman said. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress,” he added. “I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign.”

And foxnews.com is saying that,

A review of Stockman’s Twitter account by staffers and conservative bloggers shows at least 16 identical tweets.

The Stockman staffers said 10 were computer-generated and six came from real people, though only one lives in Stockman’s southeast Texas district. Two had only one follower, former Obama digital strategist Brad Schenck.

“Schenck somehow found and followed them before they ever tweeted anything, followed anyone or followed any real people,” Stockman said.

weaselzippers.us has a few of the spammy tweets.

How pitiful is your campaign when you have to pay for spam bots? Mr. President? OFA?

It looks like all’s fair in love, war and civil rights abrogation. Is there anyone out there — who isn’t on someone’s payroll — who’s genuinely for rolling back the RKBA?
