Democrats and sundry leftists in the media are showing their hand when they complain about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. In fact, they damn themselves.
There is no evidence whatsoever, not even a reputable claim, that Russia affected America’s voting machines or vote tallying processes. Rather, the charge from Democrats and the Liberal Media Complex is that Russia impacted public awareness and opinion regarding America’s election and our presidential candidates, and that Russia’s impact was to candidate Clinton’s detriment.
In other words … It’s the messaging, stupid!
What liberals thereby admit — wittingly or not — is that the information put into the public square, and how it gets put there, can be determinative. That’s a huge admission on their part. What liberals accuse the Russians of doing is what the Liberal Media Complex have done every election cycle for decades, and continue to do even when an election is over.
Case in point. One recalls the months between Barack Obama’s 2008 election victory and his inauguration in January 2009. Many in the liberal media queried with breathless enthusiasm … Must we wait until January to have this brilliant man and his team of geniuses take the reins of power? Forget what the U.S. Constitution says. Can we not just inaugurate Obama in November or December of 2008? Just do it!
Contrast that with the atmosphere of foreboding after Donald Trump’s recent victory … We must prevent Trump from taking the reins of power. We beg those of you in the Electoral College to ignore your constitutional duty. Deny this awful man and his team of intellectual delinquents any access to the White House. Just do it!
Nothing upsets the liberal establishment more than getting beat at their own game. In 2016, Donald Trump beat them, indeed humiliated them, at their ‘messaging’ game. So, they hate the man and still want to undo him somehow. Their parade of animus and negativity continues unabated.
As for the Liberal Media Complex, they’ve shown their hand. Claiming a mantle of journalistic integrity, they brazenly attempt to impact our political discourse in favor of chosen candidates and causes. That’s not journalism. It’s political advocacy. They damn themselves.Follow @PolitiQuick
