Similar to Trump's reminders on how to be emphatic:Oh it's getting worse
As dull-witted and clueless as most anarchists and nihilists appear to be, this is a pretty tried and tested subterfuge used by right and left wing extremists. There has been a surge in new and suspect bot accounts posting exactly this kind of stuff. Unfortunately, the dull-witted and clueless behavior also extends to those who don’t see these fifth column posts for what they are.I wasn't thinking about the Second Amendment, there are other considerations as well.

Going out to small town USA to stir the pot is a rather unwise choice. The fact that is the typical behavior of the radical left is nothing new.
The militant left hasn’t quite gotten that far.Well I was wondering if some folks have any idea where a lot of the food they consume comes from. Maybe they think the food fairies restock the supermarket shelves.
Okay bright spark, prove to me it is what you say it is.
You've got me. There's no evidence whatsoever that right wing extremist have weaponized the use of social media to spread disinformation, incite racial violence, incite political unrest and frequently use "False Flag' narratives to undermine the facts behind mass shootings or civil unrest. It is however extremely unlikely that it is only RWNJs using this tactic, assuming the left wingers are not entirely unaware of how to control and manipulate stupid people.
'False flag' conspiracies about the Uvalde and Buffalo mass shootings are already big on the far-right"False flag" accusations after mass shootings have increased in recent years and become less centralized around specific influencers espousing them.www.insider.com
The day of the Buffalo shooting on May 14, when a white supremacist killed 10 people at a supermarket, one prominent QAnon influencer told his 84,000 followers on Telegram that the incident was a false flag operation. Following the shooting last week at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, in which 21 people including 19 children died, the same influencer reiterated his claims that the killing was a false flag. Another prolific, anti-Semitic QAnon conspiracist claimed that "false flag shootings abound" on the day of the Uvalde killings.
These baseless conspiracy theories circulated so widely in some online circles that fact-checkers needed to debunk the blatantly false claims.
Misinformation and conspiracy theories about deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, began to spread online only hours after the carnagewww.thehindu.com
The claims reflect broader problems with racism and intolerance toward transgender people and are an effort to blame the shooting on minority groups who already endure higher rates of online harassment and hate crimes, according to disinformation expert Jaime Longoria.
“It's a tactic that serves two purposes: It avoids real conversations about the issue (of gun violence), and it gives people who don't want to face reality a patsy, it gives them someone to blame,” said Mr. Longoria, director of research at the Disinfo Defense League, a non-profit that works to fight racist misinformation.
In the hours after the shooting, posts falsely claiming the gunman was living in the country illegally went viral, with some users adding embellishments, including that he was “on the run from Border Patrol.”
“He was an illegal alien wanted for murder from El Salvador,” read one tweet liked and retweeted hundreds of times. “This is blood on Biden’s hands and should have never happened.”

Social media users have been sharing content online that suggests those who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 were Antifa, not Trump supporters. Many have been using compilations of pictures as purported evidence, but examination of these images shows they do not support this claim. Meanwhile, the FBI has said there is “no indication at this time” that Antifa had played a role in the mob that stormed the Capitol.
There is no credible evidence to support the notion that Antifa backers dressed up as Trump supporters or that they led or spear-headed the rioting.
“We have no indication of that at this time,” said Steven D’Antuono, the FBI Washington Field Office’s assistant director in charge, in response to a question over whether there was any evidence to support allegations that perpetrators of the violence at the U.S. Capitol were “antifa infiltrators” who had disguised themselves as Trump supporters.
Examining the most upvoted chat rooms in an online blog forum popular among Trump supporters on the afternoon of January 8, Reuters found a mixture of narratives being presented among this community. Some said “Patriots”, not Antifa, stormed the buildings while others blamed alleged Antifa infiltrators.
Of course Asthma Joe™ is a little bit older than the DonaldSimilar to Trump's reminders on how to be emphatic:
The president accidentally revealed a cue card with scribbled phrases including "I hear you" during a meeting with school shooting survivors at the White House.www.euronews.com
It seems to be reminder of the order of events more than anything too sinister / indicative of a toddler-like level of cognitivefunction. You will of course be aware of the leanings of Zero Hedge?
The thing about straw man arguments is the more powerful the person, or institution the greater the argument has for driving out the truth and with the entire media, intelligentsia and famous peoples club, behind Biden he still could only barely squeak a win and needed to rely on the many legal and other fixes to get him over the line and suggests the powerful have a diminishing level of control and Trump's message was strong enough to burn through the jammers..Duh.
We do have a group of people that are determined to bring the Republic down.
Biden just happens to be the leader of them.
I recall watching one night in the summer of 2020, a youtube vid of Biden in his prime interrogating Scott Ritter and Clarence Thomas and in both cases, it was clear back then, the man was wholly misrepresented by the media and he is not kindly or pleasant an individual and was nothing more than a panhandler and shill for the establishment back in the day and he's still on the payroll now and the establishment protects its own.
‘Huge integrity test’: Calls for action as Biden voicemail reveals he knew of Hunter China deals
The stunning revelation of President Biden’s 2018 voicemail about Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China raises questions about the federal probe of the first son, legal experts said Tuesday — as Republican lawmakers vowed congressional hearings into the matter.
Former Justice Department prosecutor Jim Trusty called the situation “a huge integrity test” for the FBI and for Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“Will they walk away from powerful evidence? Will they come up with a soft plea — like a tax charge — that does not remotely capture the actual wrongdoing?” he said.
“Or will they treat Hunter Biden like any other white-collar defendant in the federal system?”
George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said the recording “only magnifies the concerns over the failure of Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel with broad investigative authority.”
In it, Joe Biden told his son, “I think you’re clear” after The New York Times published a story in December 2018 about Hunter Biden’s ties to Chinese energy tycoon Ye Jianming, who vanished earlier that year after being arrested amid a probe into suspected financial crimes.
