Remember Christopher Wylie, the pink-haired Canadian gay vegan who blew the whistle on Cambridge Analytica and their misuse of Facebook data earlier this year? Well, he ain’t done blowing that whistle, girl.
Wylie told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that Cambridge Analytica also helped suppress votes from targeted sections of the American population, including black voter blocs.
“Mr. Bannon sees cultural warfare as the means to create enduring change in American politics. It was for this reason Mr. Bannon engaged SCL [Cambridge Analytica’s parent company], a foreign military contractor, to build an arsenal of informational weapons he could deploy on the American population,” claimed the Pink-Haired One.
Naturally, Wylie’s enemies attempted to discredit his statements.
Aleksandr Kogan, a Cambridge University professor who is accused of developing technology that Cambridge Analytica used to extract data, told CNN, “Mr. Wylie has proven once again that he has a very active imagination without actual knowledge to back it up.”
However, Wylie’s testimony earlier this year was backed up — via actual Cambridge Analytica-authored documents — and led to the company shuttering its operations earlier this month.
In any case, these new allegations of voter suppression against Cambridge Analytica are not just foul, but also further proof that Donald Trump did not win his election fairly. Unless, of course, you believe that preventing entire groups of people from voicing their constitutionally-granted opinion is fair.
P.S. Speaking of Steve Bannon, where the hell is that guy? Has he returned to his ceiling pod made from the old costumes of KKK members — located in his lair in the Ural Mountains — so that he can ride all this out until Trump is impeached, and then offer his services to Mike Pence? Or perhaps he disintegrated into dust at the end of Infinity War? (Or just naturally?) We may never know, or care. Sad!
