Before the 2016 presidential elections Donald Trump's supporters were worried about Hillary Clinton's emails because of what they might disclose. But today they have no problem with very real evidence that says Russia was effectively running a Manchurian operation in America.
This is both interesting, and troubling.
As your conservative friends continue to embrace what Vladimir Putin and Julian Assange have to say, rather than look into what our intelligence community is presenting in real time, you can help check their unpatriotic enthusiasm for their new comrades in Russia. You can start by asking them about the following stories ...
From National Public Radio we get: "Putin Ordered 'Influence Campaign' to Help Trump, U.S. Intelligence Report Says." Some of the report's key findings include:
Then we have the Washington Post reporting: "U.S. intercepts capture senior Russian officials celebrating Trump win":
The key for us today is how much the political Right is bending over to ignore what these developments say about their Manchurian President-elect. Oh, and they also don't want anyone paying attention to their less than patriotic response to Russian operations in America. They know it makes them look like (cough, cough) turncoats.
So this is what we have. America's conservative class would rather install "their guy" in the White House than try to determine why Vladimir Putin disliked Hillary Clinton so much, while ignoring the real reasons why Russia wanted Trump in the first place. Simply put, conservatives in America want to ignore the larger reality because of what it tells them about their guy ...
Stay tuned. This is only going to get worse.
