“Proud Boy” False Flag Emails Shows Threat of Media Bias

On Wednesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray announced that Iran and Russia are working to undermine the integrity of the 2020 election and when fake “Proud Boy” emails came to light, leftist media claimed that the emails were real.

A senior intelligence official told The Federalist in light of Wednesday tonight’s announcement, “Media did exactly what Iran knew they would do. They assumed fake ‘Proud Boys’ e-mails were real and then used them to attack Trump.”

However, the so-called “Proud Boy” emails go even further.

Kyle Shideler of the Center for Security Policy explains:

Iran utilized media bias in order to conduct a disinformation campaign aimed at the Trump campaign.

Using purloined voter registration lists, the Iranians allegedly sent intimidating emails to Democratic Party registered voters.

The e-mails, sent from a fake e-mail address “[email protected]” claimed that the Proud Boys would use violence against those who didn’t vote for Trump.

The Proud Boys, a right-wing group best known for its public clashes with Antifa at demonstrations around the country, were brought to national attention when former Vice President Joe Biden interjected the group’s name into the first debate, after moderator Chris Wallace demanded the President denounce white supremacist groups.

The President urged the Proud Boys to “stand back” and let U.S. law enforcement respond to left-wing violence. Multiple media outlets later attempted to paint the President’s comments as somehow promoting Proud Boy activity.

The Iranian operation appears to have been intended to generate media buzz by utilizing the name of the Proud Boys, and multiple media agencies eagerly jumped at the opportunity.

Name checking the relatively small organization suggests the Iranian operation had a sophisticated understanding of the current political environment.
