The FBI uncovered an Iranian propaganda trick designed to scare and intimidate voters. The FBI revealed that Iran had concocted an email allegedly from the male conservative group, Proud Boys, in which they reportedly threatened Democratic voters that they better vote Trump or else. The wording of the email was so over the top it was obviously fake. Even so, the anti-Trump Republican organization, the Lincoln Project, and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow fell right into Iran’s plans, tweeting the false narrative to their followers.
USA Today tweeted that voters reported personalized emails pressuring them to vote for President Trump. The far-left media outlet tried to look fair, by adding, “The Proud Boys, a far-right group with a history of violent confrontations, denied responsibility and condemned the emails: “It wasn’t us.”
Though the FBI had already linked Iran to this bogus information, what followed was an avalanche of anti-Trump news sources joining in condemning the Proud Boys rather than Iran.
The Lincoln Project tweeted, “This is punishable by up to a year in jail and a blatant attempt to prevent people from voting.”
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said on his Morning With Joe program, “Put them [Proud Boys] in jail.”
Rachel Maddow seemed confused by the story saying, “Why would you look at those ‘vote Trump or else’ emails and describe them as an effort to ‘damage President Trump?’”
Our Joe Biden response is, “Come on, Rachel. Don’t fall for Iran’s malarky.”
Maddow and all of her cronies at MSNBC couldn’t wait to repeat anything that cast a bad light on Trump, but in doing so they made themselves out to be “useful idiots” for Iran.
