Can the Left Weaponize Russia?

Of course it can….anything can be weaponized in politics……

The Dems need a plan…..could they do what the Right did in the 50’s……weaponize Russia to gain support and in turn gain voters?

The best weapon the GOP had 60 years ago was their hared of the USSR….their self-induced fear help them control the foreign policy that still hangs on to this day…..

The Dems had their asses handed to them in the elections of 2016….they need a plan….they need a plan that the American people will embrace and in doing so gain them votes…that magic wand that leads to power…..

Below link is a good look back at the days of the communism hysteria…..

Anti-Soviet sentiment used to be a powerful political unifier for the right. Fifty years later, some liberals think they can replicate that model.

With every passing week, President Donald Trump has furnished Democrats and a growing number of establishment Republicans with reason to worry that there is more to the president’s relationship with Russia than meets the eye. There is his ingratiating posture toward Vladimir Putin. His campaign’s machinations to change the Republican Party plank on Ukraine. Ominous threats to undermine NATO. The mysterious opposition research dossier suggesting that Moscow may possess “kompromat” of both a personal and business nature on Trump, though Moscow denies it. And now, a Fox interview in which the president drew moral equivalency between the Russian government, which imprisons and assassinates both dissidents and journalists, and the government in Washington.

The Dems will need all the ammo they can muster if they are to reverse the trend they created for themselves in the last decade…..

  1. To paraphrase G.B Shaw, for those who are afraid, there is always something to fear… Personally, I think Trumple is carrying out the fundie belief in the End Times, trying deliberately to personally bring about the Apocalypse in which they have placed all their ignorant fears as the only path to salvation…. Idiots.

    gigoid, the dubious

  2. All this toying with Russia as both friend and enemy is very naive. As often happens, so many in America treat Russia with little respect, just a country to be used as a pawn in their own manipulation of their people.
    Look at world history. Russia has rarely been defeated in any war. Except for the embarrassing episode with Japan in 1905, and bad leadership followed by revolution in 1914-1917, that country has always been a force to be reckoned with.
