518: Madness

A C-Realm listener commented that some of "the denizens of various C-Realm-adjacent parts of cyberspace" aren't much impressed with the narrative that Russian interference in the 2016 election put Donald Trump in the White House. KMO isn't remotely impressed by this narrative, nor is this week's guest, Keith Preston of Attack the System. By fixating on the notion that Clinton would have won had it not been for those meddling Rooskies, DNC partisans remain blind to the fact that their party has very little to offer the people on the losing end of wealth and class polarization. Later, KMO explains why he is making a deliberate effort to disengage from the madness that is Facebook.

  1. Again, I say I’m hardly “the opposition” at all. I know people’s strongest annoyance is reserved for those that only agree with them 95% or whatever, but still.

    Speaking of which, at the start of this podcast you spent like 20 minutes arguing against the belief that the Muller investigation not only is all about the 2016 election, but somehow will turn back the 2016 election. Who were you arguing against there? For any crazy thing, there’s surely someone who believes it, but even Trump’s detractors are generally very aware of what would happen if Trump leaves office. Focusing on that strawman seems to be descending into some nihilistic version of partisan politics, where it just doesn’t matter if the President is a crook. It’s not like the relevance of the Watergate investigation was all down to whether McGovern could somehow end up as President.

    I mean, mostly it was just boring (certainly compared to the rest of the episode) to see you beat a dead horse like that, but a bit more galling when you frame it like that’s supposed to be a stand-in for me.

  2. A couple of weeks ago, Democrat pundits rolled out some talking points on various infotainment outlets framing Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election as the equivalent of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. If you don’t want to be associated with that kind of nonsense, then, when you criticize people who are not impressed by the findings of the Muller investigation, you need to take care to distance yourself from the DNC’s barking moonbats and spell out in very clear terms how your position differs from theirs.
