We Are All Russians
As further evidence leaks of a potential scandal at the FBI, the anti-Trump forces in the Deep State, the Left, and the media are collectively freaking out. They know that if it were to be exposed that the FBI, under the Obama Administration, was colluding with the Hillary Clinton campaign to spy on then-candidate Trump’s campaign, it would quite literally be Watergate 2.0.
That’s why they’ve finally removed all filters and are unleashing every last ounce of energy that they have, as they fanatically label every single thing in existence that opposes them as Russian. After all, in their sick, demented minds, this is the only explanation that can allow them to write off the growing tide of anti-Democrat sentiment rising in the American population.
Let’s start with the story that broke this entire alleged scandal, and could still blow this whole thing wide open: The alleged FISA memo. The memo in question is a roughly 4-page report written by Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (CA-22), and which has been viewed by all members of the House. Several Republicans, including Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (NC-11), Iowa Representative Steve King (IA-05), and Florida Representative Matt Gaetz (FL-01), have been pushing for the memo to be released to the public, all of them insisting that there is damning evidence within the memo that could turn this entire “Russia” conspiracy right back onto the Democrats.
As a result, the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo quickly started trending and soon peaked at #1. For a while, #ReleaseTheDocument reached as high as #5 at the same time. As a result of this, the story has continued to gain momentum even as the Schumer Shutdown briefly took over the media’s attention for a few days.
Naturally, the Democrats knew that such intense coverage of this memo would only put them - and their potential involvement in this growing scandal - under further scrutiny. So what’s the one thing they could do to insist that they are completely clean of any involvement in the promotion of this “Russia” conspiracy?
Blame these accusations on the Russians, of course.
A left-wing group called “Hamilton 68” subsequently began promoting “research” that they allegedly did, which they claimed that #ReleaseTheMemo was promoted entirely by Russian bots. They had absolutely no hard evidence, of course, but that didn’t stop the mainstream media from taking this story and running with it, including outlets like The Atlantic and Business Insider.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough bad news for the Democrats to blame on the Russians, they began losing the shutdown battle even before it ended. Prior to the beginning of the shutdown, #SchumerShutdown quickly began trending pretty high as well, and the Democrats found themselves also shouldering the blame for the three-day halt in government operations. Their efforts to counter this, weakly promoting the alternative hashtag #TrumpShutdown, didn’t go so well.
So naturally, they began blaming that hashtag on Russians as well.
With continued pressure from these deranged lunatics, Twitter has begun actively “hunting” accounts that it suspects of being Russian bots. Their efforts have even included sending emails to users who they suspect may have “interacted” with Russian bots, as commentator and author Thomas Wictor displayed.
Now of course, these claims were completely unsubstantiated - just like the rest of the “Russia” conspiracy. But as if it wasn’t bad enough for them to look like fanatic neo-McCarthyites who had time-traveled back to Salem, at least one of their two claims of “THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING” was debunked...by themselves.
Twitter’s own analytics revealed, upon closer inspection, that the overwhelming majority of #ReleaseTheMemo tweets were in fact made by actual American accounts, not by Russian bots. This surprising amount of honesty from one of the guiltiest perpetrators of mass censorship against the Right was indeed a breath of fresh air, if not a humiliating debunking of yet the latest aspect of the greatest political witch hunt of all time.
Those behind the “Russia” conspiracy theory are ramping up every last weapon in their arsenal, undoubtedly in preparation for the fallout from the release of the FISA memo. They’re going to use every last bit of their already-low energy, but even that will prove useless as the truth exposes which side is truly guilty of collusion and conspiracy.
