“In the meantime, the Daily Kos can fucking blow me.”
From Caitlin Johnstone
So It Turns Out Black Activists Were Tricked By Putin Into Thinking There’s A Problem. *Cough*
The Daily Kos, which these days seems to spend most of its energy stumping for the new cold war and promoting blog pieces with titles like “Putin crony Jill Stein”, has got some fantastic news for black activists all over America. You know how you guys have been laboring under the impression that you live in a country built upon slavery and kleptocratic Jim Crow laws, resulting in institutional racism and oppressive generational poverty which plague you to this day?
Well, it turns out you imagined the whole thing: you were actually tricked into thinking those thoughts by Vladimir Putin in order to influence the 2016 election. Turns out your activism hasn’t been needed after all! Yay!
Don’t worry though: the Daily Kos hastens to inform us that it wasn’t your fault. You organized events protesting police brutality and systemic racism on behalf of the Kremlin “unknowingly”.
These manipulations wouldn’t be used if they weren’t expected to work. It’s up to us to keep pointing them out as they come up, but as we discussed last time, eventually we’re going to have to evolve to a point where we become immune to oligarchic propaganda. In the meantime, the Daily Kos can fucking blow me.
There is a Tweet in this article. A Tweet from Daily Kos:
Black activists unknowingly organized events for Russia, helping effort to create divisions in U.S.

Replying to @dailykos
This is condescending and idiotic. People didn't vote for HRC, because she is a lying corrupt corporate warmonger not Russia
You just have to read the article and the original Tweer to get the full effect. It’s worth it.
