    Democratic operatives funded by left-wing tech billionaire Reid Hoffman ran a widespread campaign using misleading Facebook pages in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has found.

    American Engagement Technologies (AET), which was founded by former Obama administration official Mikey Dickerson, bought ads for two Facebook pages, “The Daily Real” and “Today’s Nation,” encouraging Republican voters to stay home in the midterm elections, Facebook’s ad archives show.

    Both pages appear to be designed to give the impression that they were operated by frustrated conservatives rather than by Democratic operatives.

    The American flag-adorned pages encouraged conservative voters to either stay home in November or vote for Democrats to punish Republicans for being insufficiently conservative. Other ads called polls predicting a “blue wave” in the 2018 elections “unreliable” and downplayed the election’s importance.

    People have to be complete idiots at this point to believe stuff on the internet could be true. Unless one is on a familiar site, people should consider things posted to be bogus.

    This is on the same level as the Russians gave Trump the White House.
