You are one of those “everyone’s a Russian agent and the Kremlin’s reading my thoughts” conspiracy theorists, which makes you a Russiagater. The only reason you could possibly be going on about “Russian propaganda” in response to this article is if you were plugged in to that narrative.

I am an Australian journalist and mother who has never at any time had anything to do with the Russian government. Accusing someone who writes things you disagree with of conducting psyops for a foreign power is not a legitimate part of political discourse. You have been taught that it is a normal and acceptable thing to do by pundits like Louise Mensch and Rachel Maddow, but it has always been obnoxious, uncouth and unacceptable. I shouldn’t have to teach you such an obvious thing, but this is what your conspiracy theories have led us to.

I write about the end of illusions.
