Russian Agents Posted ‘Pro-Trump Furry Porn’ On Tumblr Because Why The F*ck Not At This Point

The Russian government did some really weird sh*t while they were trying to win the election for Donald Trump in 2016. Really weird shit.

As you’ve probably noticed, various social networks like Facebook and Twitter have been notifying users if they made an oopsie and shared Russian propaganda while they screeched incoherently about Benghazi and Hillary Clinton’s age despite her being younger than the orange-skinned buffoon currently occupying the Oval Office.

Well, New Statesman‘s Mic Wright just had the privilege of writing one of the most simultaneously hilarious and sad pairs of sentences I have ever read while noting the content of some of the blogs his friend followed that were run by Russians:

The image of Boris and Natasha hunched over a laptop generating pro-Trump furry porn is too delicious. But at a certain level this is just as worrying as any of the other concealed influence exerted by foreign agents on our societies.

You see, Tumblr just sent out a round of notifications informing their users of Russian propaganda efforts, and one of his colleagues just received a notification that he or she had followed blogs “which have, upon further inspection, been linked to Russian-state-linked actors” — a some of which dealt with “Furries.”

Yes, fursuit fetishists may seem like a weird demographic to court, but that’s apparently what happened. Russian agents operated digital playgrounds like “fullyfurrymiracle.” Forgetting for a second that the author’s colleague followed furry porn on Tumblr, whom do you think the guy who ran that blog pissed off to be stuck with that job?

Oddly, a group of Nazi furries made headlines last year when they stood up for Donald Trump at fursuit conventions. Newsweek reported in November:

The alt-furries started as a joke on Twitter, as right-leaning furries used the #AltFurries hashtag to share pro-Trump, furry-themed memes and promote satirical policies, like a ban on “species mixing.” But as the popularity of the hashtag grew, it attracted people who critics say are racist.

Today, most alt-furries interact only online, but some have taken their ideas into the real world. This past summer, one man came to Anthrocon, the world’s largest furry convention, in a Confederate flag “fursuit,” holding a Trump sign, and some people distributed alt-furry pamphlets at an Orlando, Florida, furry convention. Others have started wearing armbands strikingly similar to those worn by Nazis. To many furries, what started as an online joke isn’t funny anymore.

Before Junius arrived in Philly, alt-furries had threatened him online for slamming them on social media, calling them bigots and fascists; some said they wanted to “break his neck.” One forum group attempted to find his personal information and release it online. The threats don’t frighten him—but he is worried that a growing number of furries are vulnerable to recruitment by white supremacists. “Nazis are looking for these same types of alienated white dudes,” he says. (Like most furries Newsweek spoke to, he didn’t want his real name used in print.) “These people just want to hurt and incite—and are beginning to take their trolling offline.”

So, yeah. This is where we’re at as a country. Russians pretending to be furries posting pro-Trump furry porn to destabilize the ever-so-important “cleaning ‘love stains’ out of a thousand-dollar animal costume'” demographic(yes, furries, I am prepared for the usual onslaught of emails insisting that you’re into it for the “art”).

If this sort of shit is “great,” I don’t want America to ever be grear.
