We made the Russian trolls’ job too easy

I am so LOL-ing at the memory of hearing from those Bern-outs right after the 2016 election who were so happy to believe the DNC had unfairly rigged the primaries in Hillary’s favor, but actively sneered at the idea that the Russian government had meddled in the general election. Oh, no, we needed to focus on the REAL problem, which is that Bernie would’ve won.

Yeah, of course, so many progressive Americans found it so much easier to believe the DNC had sabotaged itself (nah) by unfairly stacking the deck (nope) in favor of the weaker candidate (uh-uh), than that a hostile foreign power had fucked with our election to favor the Kremlin-approved candidate.

Of course, part of the Kremlin’s propaganda used to fuck with our election was convincing a lot of progressive Americans that Hillary had scored the nomination illegitimately.

Which means, not only were the Bern-outs wrong in where the actual sabotage was, they were, in fact, a symptom of the sabotage. All’a y’all acting like Hillary got the nomination by some means other than getting more Democratic primary voters on her side? Congratulations, you’ve bought into Russian propaganda. And the sooner y’all admit you’ve been had, the sooner we can clean up this mess.
