Yesterday Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congressman Adam Schiff released to the press a letter they sent to the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter demanding to know how many Russian bots are behind the trending hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo.
Are they kidding?
So, if I’m to understand this, the Democrats’ strategy can be summed up like this. Whenever the American people rise up and make their voices heard, claim that it isn’t the American people at all, but Russian bots.
Honestly, the lengths these idiots will go for this Russia charade is astounding.
And it is a charade, my friends.
As Sundance from The Conservative Treehouse pointed out yesterday, according to the Daily Beast:
…a knowledgeable source says that Twitter’s internal analysis has thus far found that authentic American accounts, and not Russian imposters or automated bots, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo. There are no preliminary indications that the Twitter activity either driving the hashtag or engaging with it is either predominantly Russian.
In short, according to this source, who would not speak to The Daily Beast for attribution, the retweets are coming from inside the country.
But, see, this is why Schiff and DiFi released their letter to the press.
They know this Russia charade is a lie.
The goal here isn’t to get to the truth, but to control the narrative.
And make no mistake about it. The Democrats are losing control of the narrative.
So their only hope is to invalidate or delegitimize any opposition.
And the tactic they’ve settled on is, “It’s the Russians.”
It’s the exact same tactic they used since Hillary’s defeat.
And for some reason they think it will work in discrediting this memo.
In fact, I’m guessing if Trump defeats the Democrats on immigration reform, they will find a way to blame even that on the Kremlin.
This is the problem when one political party is so blindly driven by ideology that concepts like “the will of the people” or “the consent of the governed” are an impediment to them.
They don’t want to hear from the American people.
And when the American people rise up to be heard, they concoct this ridiculous Russia charade to dismiss us.
What’s more, DiFi and Schiff know that the Enslaved Press will back their play — which is precisely why they released this letter to the press.
But there’s one problem.
Eventually, they will begin to believe their own propaganda.
And that will be devastating for them in the 2018 Midterms.
As I said after the 2016 election, Hillary’s greatest fault in the campaign was believing her own propaganda.
Hillary Clinton was never going to win this election in a landslide. She was not running away with this. The poll numbers were nowhere near as rosy as they appeared.
It was all propaganda.
Propaganda formulated and contrived by her own campaign with the willing assistance of the Enslaved Press.
You’d think the cynical campaign staff who colluded with the press in the first place would have had enough forethought to fill Mrs. Clinton in on the plan.
“Now, Secretary Clinton. I know they’re saying the White House is yours for the taking, but that’s what we told them to say. It isn’t true. So don’t get cocky and start believing it.”
But they didn’t!
They left her twisting in a lie of her own campaign’s making.
It was blazingly obvious that Hillary made this rookie mistake weeks ago when she looked into a camera and shrieked, “Why aren’t I fifty points ahead?!”
At that moment, John Podesta should have taken her aside and told her the truth.
Clearly he didn’t.
And Hillary arrived at the Jacob Javits Center Tuesday evening believing she had this election sewn up.
If the Democrats continue to poo-poo a rising trend among American voters as being nothing more than “Russian bots,” they too will be left blindsided.
And in their attempt to regain control of the narrative, they are losing sight of one very important thing:
You can pretend a Twitter trend is manufactured by Russian bots. But at the end of the day, it is living, breathing Americans who will go to the polls on election day.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I find it all manner of entertaining watching the Democrats shoot themselves in the foot. Because the more they double-down, the further they push, the more alienated from voters they will become.
And if the end result of their obsession with this Russia charade is they get obliterated on election day, I for one will be doing a happy dance.
