I do share the general distrust of the Chinese with the Trumpies.. That's the only thing I can think I can see them on equal footing, definitely not the racist part though. So not really equal footing at all
I’m gonna disagree — this could have been just a really dumb comedy stunt, but they realized that there was nothing funny about this insane gambit... these people literally sought them out to share their thoughts and cell phone videos all because they masqueraded as Pro Trump media.
I hope they shared those cell phone contacts and videos with law enforcement. Imagine if there were actual undercover officers gathering at the protest intel among those lunatics—maybe more could have been done to stop them from breaching the Capitol.
