“Democrats liked secret-stealing Russians so much better when they called themselves Communists.”
The media has turned the hack of the DNC into an full frontal attack on Trump. Forgotten is the fact that the hacked e-mail show that the DNC stacked the deck for Hillary when it should, by modern rules, be neutral in the selection of candidates until the votes are counted. Now the story is that the Russians back Trump. But while this has yet to be proven; if it's true, why?
One comment, by CJW in The American Spectator article: WikiLeaks Crashes the Party has a plausible answer:
The next question is why would the Russians prefer Trump? The Russkies are no longer the agent of world communism with that role taken over by the Democrats so they are not our Cold War adversary. The Russians have problems with Muslim terrorists on their southern border and have had terrorist attacks on their soil just as we have.
The Russians should be our ally in fighting the Muslim terrorists, just as they were an ally in fighting the Nazis. We do not have to be friends, just allies fighting a common enemy. Maybe the Russians prefer Trump, as any normal person who cares about defeating Muslim terrorism, because they believe Trump will fight Muslim terrorism.
There are two points that are so obvious that most people overlook them because they are stuck in a time-warp where Russia = Communism. But are they? Or are the simply a dictatorship?
- Russians are no longer true-believing Communists. They are Crony Capitalists. Russia may be led by a former KGB agent who runs the place like a dictator. The oligarchs are definitely corrupt. But they are no longer keepers of the Communist flame. There are more True-Blue Communists in American academia and the Democrat Party than there are in the Russian government. Putin honeymooned in Russia because it's where he lived, not because he preferred communism to capitalism like America's Democrat/Socialist Bernie Sanders.
- The Russians have even greater problems with Muslim terrorism than we do. It's obvious that Democrats are prevented by their ideology from working effectively to end the menace of Muslim terrorism. Their ideology encompasses multiculturalism which which means all cultures are equal but which, in effect, allows it's true believers to elevate other cultures above American culture. Not so Donald Trump.
