Phony Webpage Created To Troll February 19 Washington Peace Rally
Feb. 16, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—If you go to https://www.rageagainstwar.org/, you’ll find yourself at a page designed to look like the official page of “Rage Against the War Machine,” but devoted to denouncing it.
“The upcoming ‘Rage Against the War Machine’ rally is a Russian influence campaign, taking place at the Lincoln Memorial on President’s Day weekend,” says the fake website.
“The Rage rally’s goals and published aims are to undermine Western support for Ukrainian defense and excuse Putin’s invasion.
“The Rage rally is targeting Americans truly interested in peace, but this rally is not about peace.
“Most of the speakers and sponsors are Pro-Putin, anti-peace, and Russian-funded.”
This gem of fact-checking on the “deep state” is included: “Fact: The deep state is a conspiracy theory that rose in prominence under President Trump and has been linked to QAnon and the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.”
