Hillary’s still on the road, promoting her book, absolving herself of any responsibility, and comparing her role in fomenting the new Red Scare to U.S. patriot Paul Revere.
Hillary’s ongoing campaign to blame anything other than herself for her failed 2016 presidential bid has started costing her support on the left, but good old Hillary doubled down on the blame game. Naturally, her highest-profile target is Russia, which she’s consistently pegged as the reason for her loss. The lack of evidence hasn’t slowed down her publicity war against Putin, of course, and in an interview with Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, she cranks the rhetoric up to 11, comparing herself to Paul Revere, drawing an outlandish parallel between fake news stories on Facebook and the American Revolution.
Though the investigation has been ongoing for what seems like forever, there’s still a dearth of evidence to support the claims of Trump’s collusion with Russia, and investigators have turned to the desperate measure of alleging collusion via business associates at Russian companies. It’s to the point now, where software from an internationally-renowned cyber-security firm, Kaspersky, has been blacklisted from U.S. government use, as well as Best Buy and Office Depot shelves.
As before, there’s no real evidence to tie Trump to Putin, nor Kaspersky to the Russian government. Democrats know this is devastating to their continued rallying of the constituency, and the liberal mainstream media is under scrutiny because of its seeming endless stream of fake news stories, unsubstantiated speculation, and, occasionally, malicious reporting.
Despite the lack of evidence in the Russia investigation, the left ironically ignores the very-real evidence of the media’s blatant bias, generally labeling anybody willing to call out fake stories as alt-right, neo-nazi, or white nationalist. Sometimes all three, depending on their mood.
Perhaps the most amusing bit of silliness in her interview was when she said, with a straight face, that the ballot box is “where we settle our political differences.” Kaspersky Labs, I expect, would disagree with her claim, though I doubt the political left is interested enough in the facts to listen.
Given the recent trend of toppling or destroying statues of historical U.S. figures, it’s up in the air as to whether Paul Revere will be the next target, but Hillary got toppled last year, so at least they’ve got a head start.
