An excerpt from a post I made back in 2012:

These days it truly feels like I get more truth and unbiased news from Russian or Asian sources. I can honestly trust those sources more than I can
trust the filtered slanted western sources.
This was around the time organisations such as RT were starting to become popular, around the time when the situation in Syria was really heating up
and the western MSM was going into full propaganda mode trying to convince the world we need to help the rebels and the terrorists they were
associated with overthrow a sovereign government. Of course this wasn't so easy for them when Russia entered the picture and sided with the Syrian
government. Keep in mind Russia were also the only people willing to offer Snowden asylum. They always seem to get in the way of the West's deep state
plans and there are many more examples I could give but I think you get the point.
Recently we saw a bunch of people on the left implying that Russia was behind #releasethememo trending, many well known leftist MSM outlets reported
on this story as if it had real substance. Some democrats took it so seriously they demanded that Twitter do an analysis to determine what caused the
hashtag to trend. Surprise, surprise, it turns out that these conspiracy theories were completely baseless, and that the trend was due to genuinely
concerned American citizens who just want to know the truth.
The online groundswell urging the release of House Republicans’ attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation appears thus far to be
organically American—not Russian propaganda, a source familiar with Twitter’s internal analysis told The Daily Beast.
Source: Twitter Pins #ReleaseTheMemo on Republicans,
In a recent press conference Adam Schiff was quoted as saying "Fascinatingly, they also trumpeted the second amendment. 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 would do nothing but kill each other every day and sadly we are."
This is precisely the mentality I'm talking about, this "us vs them" attitude where everything the Russians do must be for some evil purpose designed
to harm Americans. Even if some Russians argued for the memo to be released, is it not possible they wanted it released for the same reason as many
Americans? Is it not possible that Russian people actually see something good in the second amendment? Is it not possible that Russian people are
actually human beings who just want the truth like everyone else?
Now we have these recent allegations concerning some Russians who apparently operated some sort of business which advertised on social media
platforms, and we're supposed to believe that these Russians actually had some sort of important impact on the result of the election. I cannot find
the thread now but I recall there was also some analysis done by Facebook and Twitter a few months ago which found a few hundred potential Russian
bots, which is no where near enough to influence an election. There have also been studies done showing that social media ads have very little
influence on how people vote.
If you still buy into this wacky conspiracy that Russia has undermined American democracy or some how altered the outcome of the election then you are
living in a fantasy world and the only way you could continue believing these things is by letting your bias blind you. All you need to do is simply
look at the facts. Instead you cling onto false hopes and you demonize and generalize an entire nation of people, which is highly ironic considering
how much those on the left despise such actions. Stop being such hypocrites and just accept the reality you live in.
