There’s probably the greatest quote ever spoken from George Santaya, “those who cannot remember the past a condemned to repeat it.” More and more, this quote is making me feel an overwhelming urge to smack my head into a wall as I watch the media of every stripe going out of their way to antagonize Russia over alleged (it has not, under any circumstances been proven) hacking that they did of the DNC that was sent to WikiLeaks. And the more I watch the media and the saber-rattling that them and President Obama are doing, the more fearful I become that the past will come back. Only next time, it won’t be a cold war, it will be a hot war. One where the next war is fought with sticks.
If, for no other reason, I am glad that Trump won, it’s because he was immediately able to settle people’s worries about World War III. Listening to Hillary talk about how she was going to be taking offensive action in Syria with a no-fly zone, that scared the hell out of me. All of the saber-rattling after the leaked documents sent to WikiLeaks that exposed that corporate money-whore for who she is. In reality, if it truly was Russia who leaked that info, I want to thank them. If the Fourth Estate was doing its fucking job, we wouldn’t have needed Russia to leak documents. They would have been stepping up and exposing Hillary for what she is, instead of doing everything in their power to polish her knob. For my take, even if Russia was responsible (there has been NO conclusive evidence), we should be thanking them. Given what the Hillary’s knob-polishing media is trying to provoke, all of what has been said about the media’s collusion with her has been vindicated.
I guess that people are too young to remember that there was a time where the threat of nuclear war was a real thing with Russia. It was a thing that my parents generation lived in constant fear of. Two nuclear-equipped superpowers going to war, it would have been the end of life as they knew it. There were so many close calls, and it was only thanks to cooler heads prevailing at just the right moments that two nations didn’t destroy life on this planet. How I wish that my generation wasn’t full of dumb fucks. Or corporate shill media that will do anything to kiss the ass of the person that they supported.
However, I am going to try and be the voice of reason here. My fellow left-leaning people, the antagonization of Russia needs to stop. Not only does this make your side of the political fence look like butthurt little bitches, but it is toying with disaster. Think of what would have happened if Hillary had won the Presidential campaign. Given what a vindictive bitch she is, you just know that she would have put her pantsuit boot down on the situation in Syria. We’ve been fighting a proxy war in that country against Russia for years. It’s been a powderkeg that looked to blow up at any minute. But Trump immediately started talking to scale that back. Thank Groj. I honestly can say that the only time I have ever been afraid for my nation’s future was right then.
As for the liberals who want to be mad about the hacking, keep this in mind – nothing that was released has been shown to be doctored. None of it. Glen Greenwald did a fantastic article ripping the people who are butthurt about this and their pathetic attempts to defend Hillary to pieces. Hillary Clinton was a shill, who used every single tool she possibly had, media collusion, and her entire party’s backing to destroy Bernie. It was stuff people already suspected it, but WikiLeaks proved it. Then there was the release of the speech transcripts that everyone was asking for. Once-again, everyone already knew that they were a love letter to Wall Street, but now we had definitive proof. No wonder Hillary couldn’t show her face election night. Her own corruption destroyed her. If anything, all the media’s attacking Russia looks like is them attempting to cover for their own transgressions. How about we not do that?
In the meantime, let’s dial back the calls for retaliation against Russia. One guy on CNN actually said that “cyber war is the same as real war.” That fucking imbecile was actually believing that we should respond to this unproven allegation that Russia aided Trump with military force. The very idea scares the fuck out of me. It’s an opinion from a person who never has had to fear for their future. The statement of a person who didn’t live through a generation where nuclear annihilation was a very real threat.
But hey, the media has to cover their ass somehow. Might as well blame Russia. World War III? Price you pay to not have to eat crow and admit their mistakes.
