The new troll tactic appears to be using a legitimate point in the beginning of the post or reply. Then they try to connect the popular talking point that you readily accept to another point that is unrelated an most time untrue. They know they are full of shit but you play into it without hesitation because they have tapped into your emotional connection to the talking point they prefaced the conversation with. By the end of the conversation, they have gotten you to play into party politics and you are now the one creating division for them. Stop feeding the trolls and pay attention.
