Heat Street’s Loony Louise Mensch Spreads Fake Russia Graphic to Smear Donald Trump

EDITOR’S NOTE: While researching a new story, I noticed that Ms. Mensch went back and deleted every single tweet of hers that I had in this article. I guess that makes sense, because they make her look extremely stupid. It also ties into a new fraud she’s trying to push. In most cases I was able to retrieve caches and archives, or at the very least a Google search screenshot. However a couple are lost. 

Louise Mensch is either insane or she’s extremely stupid.

I suppose she could be both, now that I think about it. Regardless, something is seriously wrong with this woman. She’s been fixated on Donald Trump for months, which in and of itself isn’t that big of a deal. A large portion of the country has been avidly following The Donald’s candidacy, after all. But she’s taken her obsession to the extreme. During the primaries, she was one of the idiots who kept saying Trump would self-destruct over and over again. When he proved the airheaded tart wrong, she went and endorsed Hillary Clinton. Yes, the chief of a supposedly anti-SJW, anti-PC website is backing Hillary fucking Clinton for President of the United States. Let that roll around in your mind for a minute before we move on.

Loony Louise didn’t stop there. She went from a detractor of Donald to full-blown conspiracy theorist nutcase. Actually, that’s a major insult to conspiracy theorists, who oftentimes at least base some of their conclusions on, ya know, reality. Louise has no such problem, though. She’s particularly obsessed with the idea that Trump is some kind of Manchurian Candidate, secretly controlled behind the scenes by Vladimir Putin.

Not only is this laughable, but Mensch does it in such an incompetent way that she’s pretty much made herself a laughingstock on Twitter.

No, Louise. They aren’t. That’s the voices in your head getting too loud again.

Trust me, that was a very small sampling of Louise’s lunacy. It would take all week to go through the rest and I still haven’t even gotten to the main part of the story. That was just to show you how unhinged this ignoramus truly is about a supposed connection between Trump and Putin. I guess that’s what made her an easy mark for the trap she fell into yesterday. Long story short, there was a #TrumpWon hashtag started up after the debate and Ms. Mensch found a screenshot that she thought proved the tag got started in Russia. All was looking good for this dumbass…at first. Then, the Washington Post came along and showed the image to be a fake.

It was yet another fail in a long line of them from the ex-rock groupie.

The person who tweeted the image said he’d spotted it on TrendsMap.com, a site that catalogues Twitter trending topics. Here’s what the map of Twitter trends around St. Petersburg looks like now…

If #TrumpWon trended there earlier, it isn’t now. But there’s no evidence it did start there.

Update: A spokesperson for TrendsMap confirms that the map isn’t theirs — and that the hashtag started in the U.S., according to their data.

“This is certainly not from any of our tools and do not know of any tools that look this way,” Kathy Mellett said in an email. “Based upon our analysis, #TrumpWon primarily came from the US.  There was an initial spike just after the debate followed by a much larger one a few hours later.  In particular, around 97% of the initial spike ofapproximately 6,000 tweets came from the US.” The next highest countries? Canada and the U.K.

Notice for one thing that the map provided by @DustinGiebel doesn’t look like the TrendsMap map. The map I posted above is from a premium account for the service; if there’s another tool that overlays blue dots, I couldn’t find it. What’s more, the map in the tweet appears to be based on a Google Maps image, not one from TrendsMap. (Notice the city’s name in both Cyrillic and Latin letters.) If the trend started from a handful of trolls in St. Petersburg, it’s odd that they would be geographically distributed across the city instead of all in one location. It’s odd that the graph would show a slowly, evenly increasing number of tweets from that location. (The axes are obscured, making it hard to tell what’s being measured.)

So, we have a spokesperson from TrendsMap, the company where this map was said to originate, saying it’s not from their site. Not only that, they go further and say the real data they do have shows the #TrumpWon tag was in fact started in the United States. This demolished everything Mensch had been claiming all day. A person with even a small shred integrity would delete their phony tweet and apologize.

As you can probably tell by now, Louise Mensch has zero integrity.

New to Twitter, huh?

God, you’re so fucking stupid.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Same for the one above.

Even with TrendsMap, the company in question, blowing her phony shit out of the water in one of the most famous publications in American history, Mendacious Mensch insists on continuing to push this blatant lie. In fact, it’s pinned to the top of her Twitter profile as we speak. How long until Rupert Murdoch and his clan realize that she’s actually an albatross around the neck of Heat Street and decide to cut her loose?

I’d be very careful if I was her. Her psychosis might end up costing her that cushy Heat Street editorship one day.

    Jesus Christ, her bat-shit crazy almost makes Brianna Wu sound sane.

    Almost.

    • Almost. And to be honest, even Wu would have backed down off this shit by now. Louise is stii going on over on Twitter at this very moment.

      • DisneyVillain

        Someone crazier than Wu. I’d better call Ripley’s.

        • I’m not sure if she’s crazier, but Wu at least seems to know when to shutup a lot better than Mensch does.

  • GuitarAnthony

    Seeing the writer line-up that Heat Street has assembled, makes you wonder if they get their psycho meds at a bulk discount.

  • Maintenance Renegade

    Yeah totally makes perfect sense, during the cold war young hyper-capitalist Trump was really building his business empire at the behest of some then nobody judo loving KGB guy stationed in East Germany so that he could one day become president. Sure, why the fuck not?

  • RuralScot

    I started following her in the last few weeks before Brexit. At times she was great, she was definitely passionate and seemed to have a lot of energy when it came to tweeting.
    I stopped a couple of days before the vote because her tweets had almost become spam as she was sending so many and they said so little. Also some of her attacks on remainers were a little unfair and she came off sounding a bit unhinged. I didn’t think of her much after that though I knew she was the editor of Heat Street and I was a reader at the time, but I can’t recall reading anything by her.
    When she had that editorial sperg out over Ian Miles Cheong’s Pepe article I looked into more of her history (this fine site being of use). I also looked into more of her tweets and I was shocked. I really think there is some sort of mental disorder at play here that makes her one of the biggest attention seekers out there. I almost feel sorry for her and I for sure feel sorry for those working under her. They must never know how she is gonna behave.

    “I’ll take a Democrat over a traitor…”

    Hoo boy, Louise, where have YOU been? The current Dem nominee has been enriching herself, at the expense of American interests, for how many years?

  • Silence Dogood

    What the fuck is her problem with wikileaks?

    • Toastrider

      Well, they HAVE been leaking DNC emails. But I’ve heard they were also instrumental in leaking emails from East Anglia which showed climate researchers playing with data and blocking out critics of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). This was ‘Climategate’ if I recall correctly.

      Progtards and leftists really hate being unveiled as frauds.

      • Aj Retro

        And their kneejerk reaction to being exposed is to shoot the messenger. They don’t even try to respond to the revelations.

      • Silence Dogood

        lol well apparently not everything on wikileaks is a scandal. it’s been fairly well known for sometime that people with non-mainstream scientific views (more specifically the ones who make claims with no evidence – like NASA of all people being responsible for a global warming cover up rofl) are marginalized and shunned by the scientific community. Look at the way young earth creationists are handled.

    So Louise Mensch thinks Donald Trump is really the Bond villain Max Zorin. Got it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d308b0f3ddb94070ade301f2f855d9956bdcf7f930915a92dc03b14eedf58b82.jpg

    That whole site is effing terrible.

    Poor Louise…the botox has effected her brain.

  • Hawk Hopper

    Not the first time this chick has spread a hoax.

    Former Member of Parliament Louise Mensch has been left red in the face after tweeting a picture of her own Twitter search history, then claiming that the results were “autocompletes” caused by the high number of Jeremy Corbyn activists pumping out anti-Semitic propaganda against the Labour Party’s other candidates.

    • HAHA, thanks, I remember this one. Glad you brought it up.

    • The Blast Crusader

      Next she’ll be saying Trump supporters put her on mine carts into an oven.

  • I’d prefer not to call her an SJW, but Vox’s Laws are really, REALLY applicable here.

    • The Blast Crusader

      Exactly. The only difference between her and an SJW is that she doesn’t believe in socialist economics. Tru Conservatives (TM) are just as awful and phony as liberals, and believe many of the same false hoods of egalitarianism.

  • Iso

    What amazes me is that she’s a “Conservative” in the UK and therefore on the Right yet openly wants Shillary in office as president? Doesn’t this cow realise what Shioll will bring to the world? :O

  • IloveMarineLaPen!

    I don’t have a Twitter was almost going to get one because of this but I’ll yell on the discus sidelines.
    I have indoctrinated my self to never get a Twitter again or a Facebook.
    But should any one here decide to Twitter this bimbo, remind her about the real traitors the created ISIS please.
    One will notice liberals and some cowardly conservatives are really getting skittish no pun intended and freaking out because there’s a good chance Trump will win.

    They are scared because they KNOW they have caused a lot of harm and are scared what will happen to them if Trump wins.

    Nothing really but they think we are going to hurt them and have our own B…acon L….ettuce M…ayo riots and block their traffic. Lol

  • LorDor

    She has spent today literally cyber bullying & cyber harassing innocent Trump Twitter supporters that she believes are “Russian troll farm bots”. She identifies these when people who retweet @PrisonPlanet tweets. If they post a tweet response to him, this “signals” her somehow to their Russian identity & she uses some bad geolocation s/w to make a bizarre confirmation they are Russian. She then proceeds to spam them nonstop until they block her. It is truly disturbing her zealous hatred of Trump. Go check her timeline yourself. It is truly disturbing & agressive.

    I encourage everyone to tweet @rupertmurdoch with a complaint of her harassment. He put her in charge of an online political news site. She’s gotten worse today with her attacking what in her deluded mind are “Russian bots”. She needs medical help.
