Once Upon a Time
There were Two Brothers — one an attorney and the other not that stupid
The notion of Russian “collusion” being key to toppling President Trump becomes further implanted in the minds of most energized progressive (or, regressive) activists, as evidenced this time around by a troupe of protesters who showed up to the Department of Justice headquarters brandishing trademarked “Resist” placards, chanting “Lock Him Up,” and (as usual) hyperventilating about Putin. Trump/Putin theories are increasingly the top concern that plugged-in “Resistance” types bring up at the highly-charged town hall meetings that have received so much attention of late.
Pointing out these glaring flaws in the latest anti-Russia frenzy is immediately construed by cynics as “defending Trump” or “defending Sessions” when it most assuredly is not. It’s a defense of not getting enraptured by irrational hysterics to further short-term political aims — evidence of your political ineptitude.
People who have spent the past 3 months frothing at the mouth gradually come to realize that their initial furor was probably overblown, and that a more sober look at the actual facts at hand reveal that the anti-Trump chorus probably got ahead of itself…again.
Once More (not alone upon this moment in the space/time continuum) Progressives who sought to capitalize on the anti-Trump uproar end up looking extremely foolish. Again . . . .
