Correct The Record Silent On Disruption Memo For Trolling Twitter, Reddit, 4chan
Correct The Record

A Hillary Clinton super-PAC known as Correct The Record has been extremely silent on an alleged memo that leaked containing digital disruption methods to undermine non-Hillary Clinton voters by disparaging them from voting for other candidates on the ballot, as well as using disinformation to create negative groupthink against anyone who isn’t Hillary Clinton.

The news was originally spread when Real True News reported on the memo’s leak. This was a follow-up to other information Real True News reported on regarding a separate leaked memo showing that CTR was involved in physical disruption tactics to remove campaign signs and stickers from middle and upper-class areas showing support for Donald Trump.

The newest leaked memo was posted up on Scribd, featuring seven pages of a manifesto to cause disruption within 4chan, 8chan, Reddit, Twitter and Facebook to prevent people from supporting non-Clinton candidates.

One of the prime directives was spreading mimetic material. However, they didn’t want pro-Clinton material because they felt it was ineffective, they preferred making memes based around negatively depicting the other candidates.

The memo starts by stating…

“We are entering the final phase of the election and this is an all-hands-on-deck full-spectrum push for digital disruption and dominance. We are facing a decentralized leaderless emergent structure that can only be countered by our numbers with discipline and tactics. As such, these will be the scripts for Week 0 (through Week 3 to the vote)”

They have a referendum for each of the social media outlets, starting with Reddit, where it’s stated…

“We must maintain dominance on promotion/demotion of stories and isolation of Trump-positive threads. We are working to compromise moderators to improve our ability but will “operationalize” them in the final week of the campaign to try to make the board “go dark.””

They mention utilizing things like poll-flogging to induce emotional rage, concern trolling to create despair and using disinformation to create fear.

They even mention using Twitter’s Safety Council to get people shadow-banned who come across as “enemy thought-leaders”, writing in the memo…

“Twitter is an important resource for journalists who wish to engage in high-value political discussion. It is also poorly regulated and features several enemy thought-leaders with tens of thousands of followers. We cannot compete with their personal magnetism but the Truth and Safety Council that has been installed will allow us to no-platform (ban, shadow-ban, or threaten) any user. If Twitter is scorched-earth after this election, that’s fine so long as the right woman wins.”

The fact that they mention being able to use the Safety Council to shadow-ban people (although it’s called the Trust and Safety Council) caused instant alarm bells to go off for people who saw the memo.

Later in the memo they mention things like infiltrating pro-Trump Facebook groups to create dissent and discouragement, writing…

“Facebook is a pervasive social media that is used by older people and professionals. It is a demographic cross-section that is less activist (on the whole) and less sophisticated (on the whole) than Twitter. It is higher social-capital than the chans or reddit. It is a good place to work on negative social reinforcement. Lacking a down-vote mechanism, you will need to reply to memes with counter-memes or other mockery. If you can infiltrate pro-Trump groups, concern trolling may be effective if your FB wall will support it”

Instantly, there were questions about the veracity of this memo, as it seemed too ludicrous to be true. I did instantly reach out to Correct The Record via Twitter, asking them about it, but after nearly 100 retweets they have not responded. They have continued to engage others online and answer questions but have refused to address the CTR Digital Disruption Memo.

I also tried contacting them through their official website, but I have not received a response as of the writing of this article. Additionally, I tried reaching out to the site directly through their administration channel but they blocked incoming messages from unapproved accounts. If they choose to respond the article will be updated.

This isn’t the first time the group has come under fire for underhanded tactics. This month alone saw IVN taking them to task for potentially breaching federal campaign regulation, and they also recently came under scrutiny from a watchdog organization for potentially violating election laws, as reported by Yahoo! News. This digital disruption memo wouldn’t be surprising if it turned out to be true given the history of the group’s antics this past election season.

    Sorry Billy but that document really sounds like a troll.

    Truth and Safety Council”? “raaacism”? Referring to themselves as SJWs?

    Yeah that’s not how they talk, this is hitting too many notes at once in a way that seems like parody.

    • I agree that it seems silly, but have you read the Podesta e-mails? They mention wetworks, bringing in token minorities for specific roles to make them look diverse, literally colluding with journalists for positive coverage. The whole thing comes across as a parody.

      That’s why I reached out to Correct The Record multiple times, because if it’s fake obviously they would want to correct the record with a public statement.

      • lucben999

        Those mails come from wikileaks though, I’ve never heard of this Real True News site but that’s the name I’d give to a satire/troll site. The language used doesn’t resemble the Podesta e-mails much either, this is something I’d expect from someone trying to troll 4chan.

        As for CTR I don’t think they’d bother responding to anyone outside of their circle, as far as they’re concerned the fact that people know of their existence is already bad enough, people knowing that there are paid shills roaming around makes it more difficult to peddle bullshit.

        • As for CTR I don’t think they’d bother responding to anyone outside of their circle, as far as they’re concerned the fact that people know of their existence is already bad enough,

          Yeah, but even MovieBob was compelled to speak up to request some minor alterations to the article about him, even though most people don’t know who he is.

          CTR is responding like Quinn and crew when the CON leaks dropped. They were also constantly responding to other people on Twitter about pointless stuff all while hundreds of people are tweeting at them regarding this memo. I mean, if it’s fake… couldn’t they just say “Not us. It’s fake.” ?

          • lucben999

            I just commented again before I saw this, see my other comment, the source seems really really fake. They always get these crazy leaks that nobody else gets and they all read like parody.

          • The RTN site definitely seems fishy but I was also sent the info unrelated to RTN, I just linked to them because they were the only ones to post it up. That’s why I asking CTR about it before publishing anything. It may very well be fake, but CTR’s silence is the part that really gets to me.

          • lucben999

            RTN is most likely the source, it perfectly fits the style of the rest of these mysterious crazy leaks on the site and it’s not traceable to anything on wikileaks.

        Addendum: I’ve been checking the older pages of that Real True News site and it’s pretty clear that the articles are fake, some of the more obvious ones I found:

        Transcripts from a secret meeting between Shillary and Goldman Sachs executives where she talks about bronies and how millennials are losers:

        Feminist plot to neuter men through vaccines:

        That second one particularly sounds like typical goon shit because SJWs love to assume their opponents are the ultimate amalgamation of backwards hicks, climate change deniers, the religious right, anti-vaxers and a bunch of stereotypes they like to mock.

  • Alistair

    Oh dam they’re missed a opportunity there and they’re blown even that.

    They’ve should have tick in the “offensive Picture on the Internet” For maximum damage.

    1 thing feminist SJWs dont like is Sexy Women photos the very shit they’re pulled when it comes to sexy women characters, “You men are all the same, you only after one thing”

  • DizzyGear

    God I hope that dox of CTR employees that was dropped on 4chans /pol/ was real. These slimy fucks played with fire and I hope they got burned and got a taste of their own medicine.

    I’m hearing that there is now video proof the Clinton campaign were/are coordinating violent protests. Some people found e-mails where the Clinton campaign say they aim to make Soros happy.

    So much corruption.

    In other off-topic news (and I don’t know how true this is), I received info that the Microsoft-hired female plagiarist of the country-that-shalt-not-be-named resulted in 12k Xbox Live subscription cards (11 million pesos) being recalled by Microsoft because they had the plagiarised art on them, and selling stolen art is considered illegal.

    I also heard that country’s art community discovered she plagiarised lots more art, and were publically ridiculing/shaming her, until people started lamenting “she plagiarised, but she doesn’t deserve this!”

    If people respected artists more, they’d understand how serious it is to steal someone else’s livelihood for your own profit. I also think people are quick to defend her just because she’s a hot girl. If she was a guy and did the same shit, I doubt anybody would care.

    • Bitterbear

      She should have done like S. Koreans and tweak things even more.

    It would seem like they would want to respond to this article and the images included, because, after all, they are called Correct the Record.

    So if they don’t respond to this, are they saying that the record of this doesn’t need to be corrected?

    Also, I’m the first one to comment on this article and it’s been up for 2 hours (according to Twitter), so I guess none of their paid trolls have anything to say.

    • It’s bizarre how silent they are about this. Usually if someone was called out they would want to address it immediately, but I guess they just didn’t have any good answers to provide.
