From Discord again,
The #Magabomber is almost certainly a false flag by dems to help them increase turnout in mid terms. Could be wrong, but timing, targets, and fact that nobody got hurt is suspicious at best”
Yes, fake news. But, the Kavanaugh thing showed they can still get a 5% swing by influencing single white women through the teevee, and unlike a Senate vote this would actually matter in the midterms. The question is not “will it influence the reputation of right wingers among idiots”, because it will, the question is whether it will galvanize turnout. And I suspect not. You can get wamen to the polls with a false rape charge but not with fear for someone else’s life. They aren’t wired like that. And no other demographic that’s tuned in to John Oliver or whomever is going to change their voting habit over this. They just plain don’t care. Does anybody think a Hispanic guy is going to get off his ass to vote for the local dogcatcher because an Italian actor in New York reportedly got a suspicious package? That’s just Wednesday where he’s from. In fact, I expect the people voting for peace, security, and increased law enforcement will counterbalance the outraged. IOW, this was a very poorly conceived plan.
One thing to watch out for is, this is likely the warmup for more serious false flags. If I were planning this, I’d brainstorm a bunch of possibilities and then ramp them up, beginning with the lamer ideas like threatening Cuomo and De Niro, as election day approaches. Then when the blue wave fails to materialize, we’ll see some real kvetching.
