looks like study is here: https://arxiv.org/pdf/2101.07993.pdf

i just gave it a cursory glance, and fuck those people. the conclusion paints jan 6 as if we are the ones attempting the coup. all opinion and no fact. such a twisted world this is.

The attempted coup on January 6, 2021 has similarly illustrated that well-calibrated, well-funded systems of coordinated disinformation can be particularly dangerous when they are designed to appeal to skeptical people.While individual insurrectionists are no doubt to blame for their own acts of violence, the coup relied on a collective effort fanned by people questioning, interacting, and sharing these ideas with other people. These skeptical narratives are powerful because they resonate with these these people’s lived experience and — crucially — because they are posted by influential accounts across influential platforms.

Indeed, anti-maskers often reveal themselves to be more sophisticated in their understanding of how scientific knowledge is socially constructed than their ideological adversaries,

They just admitted that it's made up and the problem is that we know it's all made up. It's a social construct.

"... questioning, interacting, and sharing these ideas with other people." These people are not scientists...

I wonder if, in their "infiltration" they uncovered any coordinated plot.

What does the conflicts of interest disclaimer say?
