The Left’s great Russian conspiracy theory

The chattering classes have officially lost it. On both sides of the Atlantic. Of course they’d been teetering on the cliff edge of sanity for a while, following the bruising of their beloved EU by 17m angry Brits and Hillary’s loss to that orange muppet they thought no one except rednecks would vote for. But now they’ve gone over. They’re falling fast. They’re speeding away from the world of logic into a cesspit of conspiracy and fear. It’s tragic. Or hilarious. One or the other.

    Nobody believes any of this Russia mumbo jumbo. It’s just a distraction the Democrats are trying to create, so we don’t notice their selling of America out to Mexico and Muslims.

      And China.

  • The irony of the “Left-wing McCarthyism” is that it in fact lends justification to the original McCarthyism — the original anti-communist version.

    Reason being, the original McCarthyism was when Russia was in fact a Soviet Communist dictatorship, it did in fact have aspirations for global conquest or domination, and it did in fact infiltrate many areas of U.S. Government for the purpose of subversion and ultimately submission of the U.S. to International Communism (read former Naval Intelligence Officer John Barron’s non-fiction accounts based on declassified material provided by the FBI, CIA, MI5, RCMP, etc.). The Communist threat wasn’t an exaggeration — the only exaggeration was the McCarthyists reaction to it.

    Which led to the pendulum swinging too far in the other direction — Americans stopped looking for Communist infiltration in Government, and the U.S. is now in fact thoroughly infiltrated and subverted by Marxism — at least culturally or ideologically, in all its institutions and bureaucracies to a dangerous degree. Ironically, it appears that there is more Communist infiltration in the U.S. today than there is in post-Soviet Russia. And the West in general, and the communism is “home-grown”.

      History has proved McCarthy to have been right all along. The myth of McCarthism is a left-wing creation. Unfortunately McCarthy lost and the Soviet moles won.

      • I generally agree. But I heard it went too far — violated freedom of association.

        McCarthy was a true American hero.
