Um… So the Twitter account that posted ‘Patriot Front’ video was fake and is now gone.

“This is weird,” wrote one user about the fake Twitter account that shared the viral video of dudes in khakis walking around in D.C. carrying flags and little shields, wearing masks, and being not feds.

Let’s mention right here at the start that a lot of OTHER people ALSO filmed these guys. They didn’t not exist. But it’s still really weird though. Take a look.

Some people were calling out the account even before the nuking.



Like I said, there were other people with video.

Before the account got suspended, it changed its identity. It went from identifying as a computer generated blonde gal to a masked dude in the Patriot Front fashion ensemble.

Eventually, the account claimed media coup on the whole thing. “This account was created with a fake name and AI generated profile in order to fool journalists into promoting Patriot Front’s demonstration in Washington D.C.,” it said.

“Conservatives will say I am an FBI agent, liberals will say that I am working in the Kremlin. In reality I am a tech-savvy activist who had a good social media marketing strategy.”

Um. Okay.
