The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is warning that Russian agents could seek to further divide Americans by exploiting U.S. passions over whether pineapple belongs on pizza. It’s a cheesy, playful warning — but it’s trying to deliver a serious message. Posted online Wednesday by the department’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the tongue-in-cheek warning aims to help Americans identify and protect against propaganda campaigns from Russia and other foreign adversaries. After all, the DHS warning says, Russian agents are capable of simultaneously insisting online that “Being anti-pineapple is un-American!” while also pushing out posts saying “Millennials are ruining pizza!” “Foreign influencers are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to inflame hot button issues in the United States,” the new DHS warning says. “They don’t do this to win arguments; they want to see us divided.”
