THREAD: We are at a DANGEROUS point in corporate media/Twitter culture where propaganda is being pushed BREATHLESSLY to make it seem U.S. voters brains were hacked by Russia. It's being pushed by @cnn @msnbc @nytimes @neeratanden and the rest of the gang that is PROFITING from...
this propaganda. I covered 40-50 Trump rallies/events during campaign--many of them in MI, WI, PA, and Ohio. I interviewed 100s of his voters. I can tell you with 100% journalistic and observational certainty that Trump's talk about destroying #NAFTA, taking it to the banks, &
anti-immigrant bigotry were the KEY reasons he won those states. Russian "influence" or brainwashing voters' minds doesn't even make the top 10 list. @HillaryClinton was a BAD candidate who supported policies like NAFTA that decimated these key Rust Belt states. The continued...
propaganda being put out by corporate media outlets is ushering us into a DIGITAL-ERA McCarthyism where ANYONE who questions this anti-Russia hysteria is considered an "enemy." If you read exit polls from the 2016 election, there is ZERO data that shows Russia had ANYTHING to do
with voters in these Rust Belt states. No objective, sane person thinks 5% less African Americans, 5% less Latinos, and 6% less 18-29 year olds came out for @HillaryClinton because of Russia. The "journalists" and political operatives like @neeratanden pushing this PROPAGANDA are
DANGEROUS and frankly full of bs...and they are preying on GOOD people who are in PAIN and feeling scared and disgusted by Trump. This isn't about being pro-Bernie or pro-Hillary. This isn't about being anti-Bernie or anti-Hillary. This is about being PRO-FACTS, DATA, and COMMON
SENSE. There is a reason @BernieSanders and @realDonaldTrump got HUUUGE crowds and shocked political pundits and expectations in 2016. Because they were 1) anti-establishment 2)pushing economic POPULISM (Bernie was for real, Trump didn't mean any of it) 3) They didn't recite
poll-tested, consultant-crafted drivel for a year on the campaign trail 4)Both men understood the utter economic DESPERATION of a large majority of Americans (and anger at the government that has sold them out to corporations). Those who pretend Russia "swung the election" for
Trump....ask them to provide DATA, FACTS, and EVIDENCE that x, y, or z that Russia did caused a, b, and c voter behavior. I PROMISE YOU they won't. With all of this said, this DOES NOT MEAN there should not be a thorough investigation into Trump, his campaign, and his
administration. I have said FROM THE START, I am all for Mueller's investigation and let's see where the chips fall (so far those chips show no collusion). What I have been TOTALLY AGAINST is the 24/7 NONSTOP coverage of something that is...CALL ME A RADICAL...not as important as
American citizens STILL BEING POISONED in Flint; black men being executed by white cops nationwide, U.S. citizens and children being MASSACRED in schools and concerts and movie theaters, pipelines leaking into MAJOR drinking water sources, and ACTUAL THREATS to democracy like
voter-PASSED ballot measured that state legislatures are overturning, unelected emergency managers making decisions for ELECTED Mayors and City Council, GOP legislatures STRIPPING POWER from Democrats who win elections (happening RIGHT NOW in MI & Wisconsin) and the list goes on
OBJECTIVE, sane-minded people need to speak the fuck up before good-minded and good-natured people get sucked further into this McCarythite propaganda machine.
