Editor’s Note: to say that I’m running a little behind today would be an understatement of massive proportions; I’m up to my goddamn neck in housework, my phone will literally not stop ringing and I’ve still got the kind of head-cold no quantity of Bourbon seems capable of subduing. Oh, and the United States is almost certainly going to war with Syria (sadly, as I predicted both here & on Twitter for quite some time) so I haven’t exactly been sleeping well the past couple of nights either.
In light of these developments, today’s Brief Thought is going to be a short and sweet answer to the single most common question I get from rank and file liberals about Russiagate; once again some of this will be repeated material that we’ve touched on briefly in other articles but never in one, centralized post that tackles the Democratic establishment’s motive for pushing a mad, mendacious conspiracy theory on the (apparently) unwitting American public – it may be a while before we come back to this topic, as something tells me neoliberals will lay off the Trump-Putin conspiracy narrative now that the swine emperor is prepared to give them their long-desired war to depose Russian-ally Assad as the head of the Syrian government:
Note: if you’re having trouble reading the above info-graphic, just right click on it and select “view this image” to pop out a larger version; I’m working on writing on shorter summations so that I can use larger text on the memes themselves but it’s definitely a work in progress at the moment.
Frankly, I really don’t know how much more I have to say here – in addition to thoroughly debunking multiple iterations of the Russiagate conspiracy theory many times over, we’ve now established method, motive and if you’ve been watching the fucking news at all the past month you know the Dem Party’s corporate media allies have given them plenty of opportunity to push this distraction. At this point, if your spider sense isn’t starting to tingle, regardless of how much you may (rightful) detest Donald Trump; I’m pretty sure you’re already a Democratic Party superdelegate.
The simple truth is that the corporate elite wing of the Democratic Party has just survived losing three and a half branches of govt, getting absolutely face-washed by a clown fascist with no political experience whatsoever and a massive internal revolt by justifiably pissed lefties/progressives; and they did it with zero fucking casualties. Rich establishment Democrats (and their donors) still have complete control over the reigns of power; including total control over who the candidate in 2020 will be and easy access to all that sweet, dirty corporate money. I mean for fuck’s sake, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile are still on my goddamn TV screen talking about Russia and they got caught rigging the goddamn nomination for Hillary Clinton; literally no one from the establishment, no matter how guilty has suffered as a result of a failure so epic it should have sent dozens of heads rolling down the aisles.
While rank and file liberals were buying t-shirts, hash-tagging #TheResistance on social media and freaking out about rumors that “the KGB” compromised Trump with a video of hookers pissing on him – the people responsible for cheating millions of voters out of a fair nomination process and countless embarrassing electoral losses not only kept their jobs, but in all likelyhood managed to wedge their hands further into the cookie jar than ever before.
Is that enough motive for you, or do I have to wait until they actually run Hillary Clinton again in 2020 before I can say I told you so liberals?
