Earlier tonight, conservative candidate for Arizona's CD-3 Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, had a Facebook post slammed in a coordinated attack by 40-50 left-wing internet trolls. Nearly all of them were traced to originate outside of Arizona, and at least 4 of them were from outside of the United States. At least one commented from Mexico and Canada, and two from Australia.
Within 2 hours of Gabby's post, the onslaught began and went on continuously until the post and comments were removed. Even then derisive comments and blatant lies twisting her words continued to pour in, proving that the attack was coordinated with commenters responding on cue without ever having read her post.
In the U.S., comments came from Oregon, California, Tennessee, Connecticuit, and Harvard among other places. The idiot from Harvard proudly reposted a screen shot of the attack on a Latino anti-American web site, and claimed to have "reached out to Saucedo Mercer's campaign but did not recieve a reply". This was a flat-out lie since all comments were anything but an honest attempt at dialogue.
Saul Alinsky would have been proud.
