I thought this was an interesting bit of news today.


They call Trump’s mockery of other nations who fought alongside American troops in Afghanistan “slander,” noting the number of soldiers who died in the effort from the UK alone.

The board then targets Trump’s support of the Soviet Union’s presence in the country in the ’80s when he said they were “right to be there.”

“Right to be there?” the board writes with indignation. “We cannot recall a more absurd misstatement of history by an American President. The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan with three divisions in December 1979 to prop up a fellow communist government.”


The President has been having these oddly specific comments that appear to be coming straight from Putin's United Russia party talking-points. He was strangely specific about Belarus, about Montenegro and now this made-up history of the USSR's involvement in Afghanistan. Why would the American president be saying these things?

I don’t think this is just Trump it’s how the alt-right work they push revisionist history like it’s historical fact.

Meh.....to those of us who think critically and dont follow Trumps Twitter feed like it’s the gospel, we can see right through it.

Does any of this remind you of that old story "the emperors new clothes"?

The Mainstream News Media is further proving why they are an enemy of the people and how obsessed they are with Hillary/Trump.

I'm sorry, did you think that scares us or Trump?

You trash your own thread with unrelated garbage, nice job.

Yeah, I wouldn't pat yourself on the back, leftist have already proven to remove and destroy history, annotated and stated at fact.

Meh, I also wouldn't go that far and claim to think critically when your blinders are so large, you can't see anything beyond your own echo chamber.

Anyways, useless thread on more Russians, muah.

It's related because Trump keeps sending signals that he's been compromised and being used by Putin to forward the Putin agenda, by parroting Putin's talking points. No one but Putin's administration is saying that Russia needed to invade Afghanistan for its national security. This is just one more example of Trump's complicit and compromised position.

Just wow.

I know the majority of the left has already proven that they can't really seem to think for themselves, but your post in particular hit my funny bone.

So is there some DNC talking points channel that the left watches out of the thousands of channels out there?

I mean some daytime soap opera channel that entertains and brainwashes you at the same time?

Like..."The TDS Channel... all BS... all the time."

I bet it could take the last 74 viewers of CNN and wipe MSNBC off the map.

Well, looks like we have two possibilities.

1. You're right and we have a Manchurian candidate who can't do much for Russia because of checks and balances.

2. With the internet and instant communication almost anything can be framed to look like a possibility.

I'm going with 2.

From the first source:

Shakesville is run as a safe space. First-time commenters: Please read Shakesville's Commenting Policy and Feminism 101 Section before commenting. We also do lots of in-thread moderation, so we ask that everyone read the entirety of any thread before commenting, to ensure compliance with any in-thread moderation. Thank you.


Not to mention the further parroting of Msnbc.

Second source says that Trump would "have to see" when asked about his thought on Russia's annexation of Crimea. Then alludes to a comment about the same language being used within the country as a hearsay quote.

Is this the trash you read to inform yourself? As in all things, moderation is key. Try expanding your horizons. Else remain blind to the actual context and history.

Why not post the best and most convincing parts from those "articles" ?

Maybe because they don't say what you say they say eh 😂🚬

I keep asking, what has Trump done that benefitted Putin? Seriously.

Literally everything he has done, especially ramping up the oil industry and making OPEC keep prices low, has been detrimental to Putin and Russia.

Fill us in on these dastardly deeds that he is doing for Putin please.

You're lazy excuse for dismissing documented information is tiresome. Go after the ball, not the player. Argue the content, not the source.

The evidence is clear. Trump is parroting Putin's talking points all over the place.

I did. The sources are opinion and redundant.

Asking that you expand your horizons is a friendly gesture.
