Dirty politics?

Anne at The Standard:

I hear tell Cameron Slater and co. are advertising through the appropriate channels for prospective right wing trolls to attend an urgently arranged training session. It has yet to be confirmed whether a payment for their services will be made, but assurances (in writing) to the successful candidates that they will receive preferential treatment by the parental political body is definitely forthcoming. (satire)

Who is playing dirty here?

    Anne is just projecting. Notice she provides no evidence for her assertion.

    • No evidence and a /satire tag, but a fairly mischievous suggestion.

        I don’t think this is mischievious. I think this is a call to set up a set of left wing trolls (again?) to counter the perceived threat. Laying the groundwork for the next Hagar expose or the like.

          ….and the point of that link to a facebook page no one visits is?

            Satire is only funny when there is a possibility it could be true.

              I suggest Anne works on her delivery then……..

        • THIS IS TOTALLY REPULSIVE. Do not look it up. It meets the criteria for obscenity and pornography.

          • I am referring to AC’s Facebook link above!

          • I agree, I’ve deleted the link. AC should know better.

            • Thanks Pete.

              Did you guys report it? Get it shut down.

            • Did you?

              My primary interest in what is shown or linked here.

              I take it your attempt at diversion is the opposite of an apology.

              I was just showing you guys that these right wing trolls actually exist here, I’m not going to apologise for that.

      If you note the (satire) at the end that is the cue that she made it up, and she can point to that if anyone challenges her on it and say it wasn’t meant to be taken as fact. I have seen it before on TS, they make sh*t up but label it satire to cover themselves.

      • That’s exactly how I saw it.

          The Conservative Coalition has tagged this story ‘Fake News’, seems about right.

            Must be a ‘socialist humour’ thing…….

              It’s the ‘Streisand Effect’ in action, by bringing attention to it the audience has quadrupled. That’s where the humour is.

              The Standard is already unintentionally humorous with a cast of characters straight out of a ‘Get Smart’ episode……..

              ALL political blogs are unintentionally humorous.

              I must admit Blazer is this blog’s equivalent of Mr Bean……..

    I hear tell …Elvis is alive and working as a chicken sexer in Miracle Park Florida

    Conspiratoor – you are wrong about Elvis – he is living in a retirement home for CIA operatives with JFK. It was in National Enquirer, or was it the Standard?
