More ‘the Russians did it’ fake news crap. Grow up, get a life and stop lying. The alleged “Russian-linked” accounts bought $100,000 in ads from 2015 to 2017 — Facebook’s annual revenue is about $27 billion. Of those ads only 44 appeared before the 2016 election and those included ads for cute puppies and pinterest postings about cookery. Even Mark Penn, a former Clinton political strategist is on record as saying that it is absurd to believe that a $100,000 ad spend would have any effect on a presidential campaign in which a total of $2.4 billion was put into marketing, PR and ads — in fact, in a piece for the Wall Street Journal, he said: “I have 40 years of experience in politics, and this Russian ad buy mostly after the election anyway, simply does not add up to a carefully targeted campaign to move voters. It takes tens of millions of dollars to deliver meaningful messages to the contested portion of the electorate.”

I really, really wish that before people write this anti-Russian nonsense they would see the situation for what it is — an ongoing attempt to stigmatise and demonise Russia (as per Iraq) by our psychopathic ruling elite as the first step towards going to war with that country. But Russia is no Iraq. It’s the world’s largest (by land mass) country, it’s people have a generational history of enduring almost unbearable suffering and overcoming seemingly insuperable odds, it’s armed forces are at least, if not more, technically advanced than those of the US and it’s armed to the teeth with a terrifying nuclear arsenal — just one Russian ‘Satan’ nuclear missile is powerful enough, for example, to erase the entire state of Texas from the map.

So, yeh, guys. Stop regurgitating CIA and MSM propaganda and leave the fucking Russians alone before you wake up one day (assuming you haven’t already been reduced to ash and steam) to a nuclear winter and the end of humanity

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
