Response to marble falls (Reply #45)

50. Well I didn't say "Jill Stein doesn't speak Russian", although I fail to see the humor.

I said, she didn't speak TO the Russians. There were no interpreters provided. Is that funny too?

And at the time, which is important, RT was hosting more than one respectable liberal host. Thom Hartmann, Ed Shultz, among others. With regular guests like Ed Asner. Even old Larry King had his own show! I have a hard time believing he was working for Putin. Obviously Putin gave them free reign to cause a disturbance against corporate America, speaking truth to American power, even while at the same time Putin was helping the corporate friendly GOP. Pitting sides was Putin's specialty. Should say Hartmann NOT accept the air time if no one else will give it to him? Even if the message will then never get out? An interesting delima meant for another thread.

But all of that is a red herring. This running around spending time inventing fake news stories about a person that shares much of my and the Democratic party's principles is odd to hear. That we attack those that are closest seemingly much harder than the real foe, those that share the opposite views. Honey works better than vinegar IMO. It seems like luring Green voters over, those who share most of the same concerns about the planet, is smarter than insulting them with ludicrous conspiracy theories, which I think, and Putin too I'd imagine, would further liberal voices infighting.
