Opinion| If there is one thing I have learned about politics in the last few years, it is that Democrats will do ANYTHING to win an election & gain control of the levers of power.
There is nothing below then, no lie to big, no tactic to dirty, no attack to savage.
The left loves to fall back on their talking points that Russians, who spent $100,000 on Facebook ads, some in favor of Trump and some supportive of Hillary and/or her ideals) swayed the election in 2016. When making this argument they fail to mention this story …
“Remember this Dry Alabama result that we had yesterday?” Limbaugh said in reference to reports Monday revealing that progressive Democrats engaged in “false flag” online campaigns in 2017 targeting embattled Republican Roy Moore. “There was I think some pretty big news made yesterday that has not even been repeated that was revealed on this program.”
“It was exactly the kind of operation they say that Trump and the Russians cooperated in to defeat Hillary!” said Limbaugh. He then threw in a line for the more conspiratorial types: “Who’s to say that all of this Russian meddling from the get-go hasn’t been run by Democrats right out of the DNC, right out of the Hillary campaign?”
Saying the Democrats are “thick as thieves” in these kinds of dirty tactics, Rush underscored the “irony” of it all: “So the irony here is that while we’ve had the last year and a half of our lives torn apart by an investigation into whether or not the Russians meddled and somehow cheated and arranged Trump getting elected when in fact the Democrats are the ones running these operations right out of the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee!”
A little back story on the scandal from The Daily Caller:
A trove of reports show two Obama-era officials are partially responsible for a misinformation campaign designed to derail Republican Roy Moore’s senatorial campaign in Alabama.
Former President Barack Obama campaign organizer, Mikey Dickerson, was instrumental in a disinformation campaign targeting Moore, reports show. He was not alone. Evan Coren, who has worked for the National Archives unit since Obama’s first term, also targeted the Republican’s campaign.
Coren and other operatives created a “Dry Alabama” Facebook page with a blunt message attached: Alcohol is evil and should be prohibited, The New York Times reported Monday, citing sources familiar with the matter. The page included images of car wrecks and ruined families, the report notes. Its contents were targeted at business conservatives who are inclined to oppose prohibition.
Rush is right. The left can not have it both ways. The criminals who carried out this election tampering scheme need to be indicted and tried for their crimes against our election system. Until this happens I do not want to hear another word about “Russians interference on Facebook” … not one more word!
