A few days ago I threw out the idea that maybe there was a conspiracy about the Zika virus. It was all in fun, because the chances of nefarious governments trying to decrease world population seems far-fetched.
Like you, I pay too much attention to the news. The happenings around Trump’s white house are getting more ridiculous. I even read where a House committee wants to reopen investigations into Hillary Clinton instead of digging into Trump’s Russian connections. Of course, this sort of slant is loved by everyone’s favorite hateful news network – Fox.
And that got me thinking.
The Russians have always dealt with the cold war difgerently than Americans. We spent money on technology and armies. They spent money on spy networks and prostitutes. Putin was one of their best.
We now have ample evidence that Russian hacking rings have been responsible for massive influences around the globe. Facebook has admitted that there were 70,000 fake profiles set up in France in order to both destabilize the Macron campaign and bolster his radical opponent, La Pen (she’s a Trump clone).
Here’s the conspiracy. The single greatest force that has been effectively destabilizing our democratic process since 1996 is Fox “News.” (Sorry, I can’t say this with a straight face, or without putting it into quotes. Forgive me, Gentle Reader.) That date is important, because that’s when Clinton (Bill) won his second term, and the Republicans were already preparing to put another Bush in power.
What if Rupert Murdoch got help from Putin? What if they helped him in terms of supporting the network, making sure he got ad money, maybe even helping fake how well it was doing in the ratings? All of these things are done on computers now, and we know how good the Russian hacking rings are.
Just think of the possibilities. Putin hardly has to raise a finger. Murdoch is doing the dirty work for him! Creating whole new categories of “fact” and “alternative reality.” Putting pretty women in front of lots of old white men, and then groping them behind the scenes. That is pure Russian mentality.
Need some evidence?, besides this pretty darn good crazy thread of a theory? Here it is.
If Fox “News” is so dang conservative and old-fashioned, where is the pure outrage against all the Russian influence we’ve uncovered since before the election? Hacking into voting systems, spreading viruses, and leaking sensitive emails of Hillary and others. What about the outrage we should be hearing even now? Don Junior’s meeting with Russian agents? Don Senior’s business dealing with Russians? Perhaps that’s the real reason why he refuses to reveal his tax returns.
You can take it from here. As far as I am now concerned, the conspiracy theory has hit its peak. Fox “News” is a front for Putin and Russian influence in our society. I know we’ll prevail, because we are far tougher than they are. But now knowing there’s a Russian handler sitting behind every pretty Fox face gives the channel a whole new look.
Yes, that’s Russian for goodbye comrade. If you like Fox “News,” you should start learning the language.
