Cultists Tricked Into Joining “Gay Communists” Group

The Guardian reports:

Thousands of Donald Trump supporters have unwittingly found themselves in a Facebook group called “Gay Communists for Socialism”, after being tricked by its creators into joining what they thought was a pro-Trump election group.

On Thursday, a Facebook group called “Stop the Steal”, a reference to the president’s false claims that Joe Biden is “stealing” the US election, was disabled by the social network for misinformation after gaining more than 350,000 members.

Other groups emerged in its place, including a second “Stop the Steal” group that attracted more than 40,000 castaways from the original group. But less than 24 hours later, an administrator for the group changed its name to “Gay Communists for Socialism” without explanation, confounding the new members.

The group’s administrator further trolled the cultists by telling them the name change was done by anti-Trump Facebook workers, setting off thousands of outraged reactions. Hit the link.
