First Medium Article: Liberals Should Be Very Concerned About Russian Conspiracy Theories and Their Neocon Bedfellows
I just wrote my first article for Medium.com. Not sure I will write regularly for them, but I figured I would give it a shot. The article is warning to liberals about what I call the "Muh Russia" conspiracy theory,
"After all, this fear-mongering over Russia, or Russophobia perhaps, has been going on for a while and has been lead by two the of the most hawkish Neocon Republicans out there; Lindsey Graham and John McCain. Bill Kristol — the founder of The Project for the New American Century, which literally dreamt up the Iraq War — tweeted the following when General Flynn was forced to resign after it came to light that he had discussed sanctions with a Russian diplomat,
"'Obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.'
"Are these really the kind of people the Left wants to get involved with? These are the guys who are clamoring for every war they can get. And flirting with war with a nuclear-armed Russia is just outright insane. I mean, just watch Lindsey Graham throw a hissy fit because we weren’t going to invade Syria or something like that."
I then quote former acting CIA Director Michael Morrell, who endorsed Hillary Clinton and probably would have become the CIA director if she won, concluded that,
“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”
And now the firm CrowdStrike, that determined Russia was behind the hacking, is coming under fire for an inaccurate report on Ukraine and holes in their Russian hacking story.
