I think it’s interesting that you chose to use the phrase “Russian trolls” instead of “Russian hackers”. That’s an immense goalpost move; the argument has always been that Russian hackers swayed the election by giving Democratic emails to WikiLeaks. As we have still to this day seen not one shred of proof of this accusation, and as the “Russia hacked the election” narrative loses more and more ground, I’m seeing more and more people sincerely attempting to argue that Russians gave the election to Hillary Clinton via “trolls”, which when you boil it down is an accusation that Russians promulgated pro-Russia propaganda on the internet. Meanwhile CNN got caught deliberately staging a fake interview featuring a seven year-old girl who can’t speak English reading scripted war propaganda to their unsuspecting audience to manufacture consent for regime change in Russia-occupied Syria. Your argument has zero weight.

I write about the end of illusions.
