The purging of voters in New York and in other states is truly on a historical scale, and such a compilation of "dirty tricks" that it supersedes being just one dirty trick, but a massive series thereof that defies description and even defies comprehension.

Of all of the individual short-term single action criminal actions in the 2016 campaign, I unequivocally award the top honors for Most Egregious Dirty Trick to Hillary Clinton and her operative, Casey "Champagne" Charbonneau, who was in charge of a well-funded operation ($1 million!), called "Social Media Re-Education." This, to my knowledge, may have been investigated, but has never been prosecuted, despite a petition asking the FBI to investigate and prosecute Casey Champagne for distributing Child Pornography.

The net effect of all of this was that because of the shills "complaining" to Facebook, and with no explanation whatsoever, Facebook dutifully shut down the at-least seven Bernie Groups for about six hours, the night before a major primary Tuesday in which Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island voted. Millions of Bernie supporters were using these pages for exchanges of idea, last minute requests to get voters to the polls, open discussions of strategies, etc.: completely shut down at a very critical time.

Here are some of the details:

Clinton's Internet Supporters, Allegedly Using Pornography, Shut Down Bernie Sanders' Largest Facebook Groups in Coordinated Attack, By Walker Bragman & Shane Ryan April 26, 2016

Last week, Correct The Record (CTR), David Brock's super PAC that coordinates with Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, announced that it was spending $1m on social media in an effort to combat Bernie Sanders' online dominance. How, specifically? By paying trolls.

Last night, on the eve of five Democratic Primary elections--Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland--we may have seen this paid army in action. Several notable Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were taken down following a coordinated cyber-attack by Clinton supporters, in which a number of users reported content on the pages simultaneously. According to US Uncut, "Facebook's automated systems take note of how many individuals report a particular post, and if the post is reported enough, it will be taken down. This same process applies to groups, pages, and individual user accounts."

The groups affected by the attack include (but are not limited to) the following:

Bernie Sanders Activists (40,122 members)

Bernie Sanders Is My Hero (60,097 members)

Bernie or Bust (16,812 members)

Bernie Sanders -- Ideas Welcome (33,836 members)

Bernie Sanders for President 2016 (117,601 members)

Bernie Sanders Revolutionaries
