Lies,Untruths and "Alternate Facts"
August 5. 2018
What I find most astonishing about the past two years is the amount of bullshit Republicans and Trump supporters are willing to spew. First, despite testimony by leaders of all our intelligence services, there was no Russian interference in the 2016 election. Next, there may have been a little interference, but it didn't favor any candidate. Then, there was interference that may have favored one candidate, but there was no collusion and they did it all on their own. They have since moved to more of a conspiratorial focus, trying to slander the investigators. There is even a book, #16 on the Amazon read list, called “The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump”. Republican intelligence and law enforcement officials have been called biased Democrats. This shit has become insane. I think we are going to have to accept the premise that nearly 40% of our population has chosen to live in an alternate reality and are no longer reachable. That is what makes it more important than ever that those of us who have not gone bat-shit crazy and still see Russian election tampering as the national security threat it really is, need to band together and fight like our democratic republic depends on it.
