I was never going to vote for Hillary Clinton. The Russians’ alleged hacking into DNC computers and Donald Trump allegedly buddying up with Vladimir Putin to swing the American 2016 election did not cause me to vote for the current President. This hysterical, repeated mudslinging by the Dems, Repubs and the entire world’s press outlets, slanted to cast Donald Trump as some sort of traitor to America is far far beyond laughable. It is manic and delusional.
Let’s take a look back at recent history. By recent, I mean beginning in 1933, when FDR normalized diplomatic relations with Josef Stalin’s Soviet Union. No American President prior to FDR would even consider such an idea, because Stalin was a despot – a butcher of humanity who starved millions of his own people to death in the Terror Famines. He actually outdid Adolf Hitler in exterminating human lives. But Roosevelt took Stalin on as a friend to the United States and in so many words told the American people that Russian values were like American values.
The American press corps and the Democrats, who controlled both houses of Congress, covered up a ton and a half of evidence which showed that not only was Stalin trying to export his Communist revolution to the USA (in violation of the written promises he’d made to Roosevelt in 1933 to not do that), there were Soviet agents working in the State Department, The Treasury Department, The War Department, and even in the White House, itself. In the Lincoln Bedroom.
In the 1950s the press corps and the Democrats piled onto anyone who suggested (or proved) that we might have a problem with hundreds of Stalin’s agents working within our own government and other American institutions, to demolish our country.
As far as the press and the Democrats were concerned, Stalin and Mother Russia were good, don’t you see? This went on for years.
Russia and its Communist political system were good. There was no Russian subterfuge at work within America . Anyone who said otherwise was a lying monster.
Comes now the unthinkable. The American people revolted at the ballot box and elected Donald J. Trump, for better or for worse. Suddenly, in a most Orwellian manner, the Democrats and the Press Corps have done a 180 degree back flip on the Russians.
Remember Hillary Clinton’s RESET button?
Now, both political parties, Republicans and Democrats, the press corps, and the vast majority of broadcast media outlets are braying the complete opposite of what for years had been the standard refrain – in awful four-part harmony:
The Russians are bad. And they’ve teamed up with an American President – Donald J. Trump.
If one looks at how the anti-Trumpers have turned themselves upside down, it’s really difficult not to laugh at them – hysterically.
