Why do some people believe that Russia Gate is real while others can see that it's a hoax?
Caitlin explains why people who used to be against war are now happy about a possible one with Russia. She uses this video as an explanation for why some are dead certain that Russia interfered with the election even though it's an outlandish claim to many others.
"This is because people aren’t thinking. They are following."
Bingo! Anyone who doesn't buy into Russia Gate will be kicked off the island after being ridiculed and flagged of course and people like to feel like they belong to the cool kids group. Plus they believed Hillary was the most qualified candidate to run for president whilst ignoring her many flaws?
Why didn't Russia interfere with our elections before the last one? Are we supposed to believe that they did it just to keep Hillary out of the White House because Putin was scared of her? Why have people forgotten what Obama said about how safe our elections are? Why are people suddenly thinking that the FBI is telling them the truth this time after they have lied to us for so long? Mueller indicted 13
ham sandwiches Russians and 3 Russian companies that placed ads on Facebook (most were placed after the election) and they see that as proof that Russia did the deed, while we laughed at it. Plus there's the number of people who Mueller has charged for things that have nothing to do with election interference.
Another question is why were those of us who got kicked off the daily kos island because we knew that she was a bad choice for president because of her warmongering way, her pay to play and the other problems we had with her not buying into Russia Gate?
And why are the Russia Gaters so sure that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people while most of us here are seeing that this is the new WMDs scam?
This 5 minute video shows how easy it is to get people to conform with others.
Every few minutes a bell was rung, at which time all the actors would stand up for no discernible reason and then sit back down. The real patient was confused by this behavior at first, but by the third bell she was standing and sitting in unison with the rest of the herd.
And now we have groups that have a historical tradition of opposing the agendas of the US-centralized war machine actively cheerleading for escalations against Russia and regime change in Syria. Trump’s hawkish maneuvers against Russia, already far in excess of any ever undertaken by Obama, are being condemned by Democratic party leaders as grossly inadequate. Even some proper leftists who claim to oppose the predatory capitalism of the neocon centrists are now actively cheerleading for the longstanding CIA agenda of regime change in Syria. The obvious reality has been obscured that US military interventionism in the modern world is literally always disastrous, literally never helpful, literally always extremely profitable for military-industrial complex plutocrats, and literally always based on lies.
Ding. Did you stand up?
