Liberals Scream For Blood as Conservatives Go to Bat For Russia

American media biggies on the right are starting to realize that Russia has been unfairly demonized and slandered by the same people who are doing it to the president they support

There is a major shift visible in the American right wing pundit class.  More and more of the big names are going to bat for Russia.   It started with Buchanan, but has now spread to Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Limbaugh, to name some of the biggest.

The American left's psychotic, hallucinatory hysteria about Russia, its leader, and connections to Trump, have gone so far over the top, that the American right has little choice but to notice, and argue the opposite, - so thanks Rachel Maddow and Co., you just pushed the American right into an embrace with Russia!  Now they realize the pack of lies your neocon media masters have been selling for the last 15 years.  Bravo!

With people like this in your corner, you're doing pretty well.

Yesterday Ann Coulter entered the fray with a blistering piece pointing out what is now such obvious nonsense coming from the Russia bashers, that everyone can see it for what it is.

Try this on for size:

But now liberals are hopping mad with Putin. They could never forgive Russia for giving up communism.

To add insult to injury, Putin embraced the Russian Orthodox Church! This was deeply offensive to fiercely Christophobic liberals.

Russia’s descent into insanity and madness was clear when Putin refused to allow LGBTQ marches through Red Square. For having the same position on gays as Obama did, circa 2008, Russkies were walking on the fighting side of liberals!

Trump’s election victory was the capstone of the left’s rage with Putin. To explain the inexplicable, Putin was made the center of liberals’ axis of evil, the mastermind of a malevolent plot to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.

That’s how liberals became born-again John Birchers, seeing Russians under every bed. Now, no fear of Russia is inordinate. The Russians do NOT love their children, too.

And then this:

Democrats (and two especially showboating Republicans) are horrified that Trump wants to get along with Russia. Tonight, the threatening evil of Vladimir Putin will be the top issue on Rachel Maddow’s show, assuming she still has a show. (Maybe she can get a copy of Putin’s tax returns!)

When the same people who hailed Stalin as a beloved American ally are happy to threaten Putin with thermonuclear war, we may deduce that the left’s newfound Russia-phobia has some seditious objective.

Historically, liberals show their manliness by demanding war with our friends and allies, while methodically undermining America’s ability to fight the wars it’s already in.

The No. 1 enemy of Western civilization today isn’t non-communist Russia. It’s Islam.

And who is a key ally in that fight? Russia has been dealing with these troublesome Muslims for centuries. It was Russian officials who tried in vain to warn our blind, incompetent government about the Boston Marathon bombers.

The left’s hysteria about Russia isn’t just an attempt to delegitimize Trump. It’s the usual Christophobic fifth column rooting for the Islamization of the West.
