Forget the Russians, are Americans meddling to help boost Le Pen’s chances?

While all pre-election talk has concerned fears that Moscow will try and influence the French presidential election, new data in France suggests American internet users are working hard to boost Marine Le Pen’s chances of victory.

While Russia has been formally accused of trying to meddle in the French presidential election to seek a favourable outcome, it seems they are not the only ones (alleged) interfering.

The company Linkfluence, which monitors social media channels, released data to BFM TV that suggests American internet users are also trying to influence the outcome of the presidential election by helping to boost Marine Le Pen’s chances of winning.

Now that’s paranoid.

            We need to hack the Russians, and replace Putin with someone who is really a hardliner against the Muslims.

            Assad seems to be pretty good at killing them, this the west’s problems with him.

    And here I thought that it was only the Russians that did that when they wanted —
    TRUMP as POTUS

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    This is strictly 4chan/Pol/’s doing in trying to repeat the “meme magic” of last year.
    I wish them luck.

  • LairdKintyre

    That’s exactly what I’m doing of here. Getting the word out for Ms LePen. I am also doing the same thing for Kellie Leitsch. And I did the same thing for Donald Trump. I hope the afore mentioned candidates do as well as Trump. Western Civilization itself is at stake.

    • Shebel

      Kellie Lietsch—-vote for her if want ‘Justin Forever ‘.

      • WalterBannon

        Canada would benefit from having a civil war

    Fouetillou says he can see the influence of the American ‘alt-right’ – an extremist far right ideology, whose followers were accused of helping Trump to power.

    This language.. extremist, far right pretty standard.. but “accused”?

    The verb accuse has 2 senses (first 1 from tagged texts)

    1. accuse, impeach, incriminate, criminate — (bring an accusation against; level a charge against; “The neighbors accused the man of spousal abuse”)
    2. charge, accuse — (blame for, make a claim of wrongdoing or misbehavior against; “he charged the director with indifference”)

    • Millie_Woods

      Nobody ever gets accused of helping a leftist to power.

  • mobuyus

    Is common sense meddling with the nefarious plan of leftist retardism.

  • Maggat

    Please, tell me how I can help.
