This is/was a new tactic. During the Russia, Russia, Russia fake news stories, progressives started seeing Russians behind every tree. Anyone who disagrees with them are part of the conspiracy. Svetlana Voreskova IS Russian!! Oh my god, a real live Russian! Their minds are atwitter with paranoia. There is another woman (Caitlin Johnstone) who is being attacked the same way. She is an Australian!! Oh my god, real live Australian!
Ironically, when I read the paranoid fantasies of the progressive left, it only stiffens my resolve to run as far away from them as possible. These people are the new “Tin Foil Hat” crowd. McCarthyism at it’s finest.
