America now with memes for to re-educate at glorious Russian Troll Farms

Is good? Maybe no.

Greetings, comrades. You may already be serving Mother Russia and her stooge American infomercial con-artist President and Soviet Republican party while resisting.

Am sure? Is car working? It has wheels. It has brakes. But maybe defogger broken. Maybe cheap tires ready to peel off any instant.

But what about memes? Memes good. Facebook good. Twitter good. Is all very good. No? Maybe?

Some pro-Bernie sites and some pro-Hillary sites (neither actually connected to the public figures they champion nor connected to any current or upcoming election) are troll accounts designed to tear the Democratic party apart. Of course, we do enough infighting to do that by ourselves, but full-time pro and amateur trolls giving us metaphorical pointy sticks and knives to help us isn’t helpful to create positive outcomes.

Not sure what Russia’s endgame is, but they were playing the progressive and centrist factions and both parties off of each other in the last election cycle. I’m seeing signs that this is continuing to happen. There’s a virtual psychological ploy being used to encourage, by design sometimes, unwittingly sometimes, tribal gang wars within the progressive movement. We didn’t get Trump by accident. We’ve been walking this way since the Reagan Reaction. The Resistance needs a United Front or reactionaries will stack the courts and all the legitimate seats of power with their own lawless might makes right kind.

 


Fake News: John Adams commenting on the 2016 Election

“The poor man’s conscience is clear; yet he is ashamed… He feels himself out of the sight of others, groping in the dark. Mankind takes no notice of him. He rambles and wanders unheeded. In the midst of a crowd, at church, in the market… he is in as much obscurity as he would be in a garret or a cellar. He is not disapproved, censured, or reproached; he is only not seen… To be wholly overlooked, and to know it, are intolerable. If Crusoe on his island had the library of Alexandria, and a certainty that he should never again see the face of man, would he ever open a volume?” —John Adams, Discourses on Davila, from Hannah Arendt.
