For the last year plus, the United States has been in the grips of a bizarre and pointless democratic conspiracy theory regarding Donald Trump and the Russian government.
The basic gist of the left’s argument hinges on the possibility that Donald Trump is some sort of Kremlin double agent hellbent on handing over the keys of the American kingdom to Vladimir Putin.
On its face, the entire charade is obvious nonsense, but that hasn’t stopped the left from appointing Robert Mueller as Special Counsel in hopes of him spending possibly years attempting to find a way to fully delegitimize the President’s electoral evisceration of Hillary Clinton.
Now, however, the democrats are now attempting to transform Russia into the Swiss Army Knife of boogeymen, with ultraliberal California Congressman Adam Schiff now claiming that Russia is promoting the American 2nd Amendment so that we all “kill each other”.
‘The Media Research Center reports that Schiff claimed that Russians took to social media during the presidential campaign in order to divide America and cause one demographic of Americans to oppose another. He said Russia pushed ‘content designed to pit us against each other, to exploit our divisions.’
“MRC quoted Schiff saying, ‘Apparently the Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment. They don’t particularly want a Second Amendment of their own, but they’re really glad that we have one. The Russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are.'”
Hearing a democrat denounce a foreign entity as “divisive” is almost too hypocritical to comprehend, given the left’s insistence on segregating the American population into easily malleable segments for the sole purpose of brainwashing millennial voters.
Furthermore, Schiff’s absurd assertion makes absolutely no consideration for the Russian “end game”, if there even is one.
While the idea that Americans will simply kill each other off with firearms, allowing Russia to exert its authority over us in the near future is simply idiotic. No future invader would ever wish that his future adversary was as well armed as the American people are.
Once again, this is simply a case of democrats playing Mad Libs with whatever key terms their leadership continues to harp on. In this instance, they simply combined “Russia” and “2nd Amendment” and ran with it.
