New Dem hot take: Russian election 'meddling' is just like Pearl Harbor, Insanity and collusion.
Years ago, it was widely suspected that Dem-friendly media personalities were coordinating their narrative across multiple networks, shows, and publications. They swore they weren’t, claiming that they were just doing the Lord’s work by delivering honest, hard-hitting journalism. Conservatives didn’t by that line. It simply seemed too weird that, suddenly, they’d all start saying the same things, at the same time, on the same day.

It seems that a handful of Russian internet trolls and a measly $1.2 million in funding is pretty much the same thing as the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Then, the “JournList” scandal broke, and conservatives knew they’d been right all along. JournoList was a google group created by Ezra Klein where over 400 left-leaning reporters, hosts, and so-called thinkers organized messaging and discussed news narratives. It was shut down after being outed, and others (including “Cabalist”) rose to take its place.

I have no way to prove it, but I suspect one of these forums has been working overtime to spread a particular narrative this week.  It’s a ridiculous position, but it’s emerging everywhere you look - TV, print, and straight from the mouths of politicians themselves.

Yes, that’s really what they’re saying.

If this line was being spread by just one hyperbolic talking head on a CNN panel, I probably wouldn’t think much of it.

Except that’s not the case.  It’s all over the place.




Remember: We know Russia didn’t change a single vote once it was cast.  We also know the red menace didn’t “hack” Hillary into being the worst, most stilted, candidate in modern history. ...And we know that the Soviet Bear didn’t keep her from campaigning in the Midwest.  In fact, no one has ever been able to provide a single shred of evidence that Russian trolling changed a single voter’s mind.

But, in the lockstep mind of the left-wing brain trust, funding a few Facebook ads and a couple of manipulated Bernie rallies is the same thing as an aerial sneak attack that killed 2,403 people, injured 1,178 more, and took a devastating toll on the American Pacific Fleet.

No wonder the media machine “colludes” to peddle its narratives.  No sane person wants to be the only guy saying something this incredibly stupid.
