BBC, CNN, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, The Daily Beast, The Atlantic, every neocon/neo-liberal publication and almost all of western media is blaming Russia for absolutely everything.
Deny and deflect…The latest “Russians did it” video from the Hillary campaign.
Donald Trump Jr: Hillary Clinton’s “lie after lie”.
The list of lies is never ending, but what is truly depressing is that lots of people actually believe the lies, which only makes the spin doctors use the ‘Russia did it’ card more often.
- Russia invaded Ukraine because twitter told us so, and a BBC journalist saw 5 Russian guys in fatigues cross over the Russian Ukraine border…which makes for a huge military invasion not seen since US and UK tanks rolled into Iraq.
- Russia annexed Crimea against the wishes of the majority 3% that voted to stay in bankrupt, chaotic, Ukraine…while the minority 97% voted to join the Russian Federation where stability makes life so dull, compared to the US coup installed government in place in Kiev.
- Russia is planning to invade Estonia and overrun Lativa, because what country does’t want to rule over the oil rich, gold rich Baltic nations.
- Russia is moving towards NATO, as tectonic plates under Russian soil magically shift Russia’s borders closer to Europe.
- Syria is Russia’s fault, because they just would not stand back and let the US bring the wonderful neo-liberal life to secular, stable Syria.
- Libya, Russia’s fault for not helping NATO bomb the country into democracy.
- Clinton email scandal…a Russian plot to destroy honest Hillary.
- Trump…born and trained in Moscow from early childhood, and planted in New York for the sole purpose of winning the Presidency and destroying America.
- Russian athletes…all dopers, every single one of them.
- Rain in London…Putin’s fault. US mass shooting, Russia did it. Ebola, Russian virus. Zika, Russian mosquitoes. LGBT bullying, Russian laws. Black Live Matter, Putin organised campaign to destabilize US.
- Having a bad day…blame Russia, blame Putin.

“What’s disturbing to us is that experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole these emails and other experts are now saying that Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of helping Donald Trump,”
Clinton campaign chairman Robby Mook said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
And just in case the disturbing picture that is being painted is not quite registering, here are some main stream media headlines dug up by Zerohedge that should drive the point home.
The real “useful idiot” is the person who actually believes the ‘Putin did it’ narrative.
This weekend we once again got confirmation that any time the generic narrative spectacularly falls apart, and the “establishment” is caught with its pants down (or, in the case of the DNC, engaging in borderline election fraud leading to what the FT just described as “Democrats in turmoil“) what does it do? Why blame Putin of course, and more specifically his “useful idiots”, and hope the whole thing blows over quickly.
Not convinced? Here is the proof.
