Instead, let’s focus on the activities that we actually know happened. The DNC focused its campaign to get Hillary elected
before any candidate ever declared their intention to run for president. The leaks for Wikileaks show how they not only planned for this but also demeaned other potential candidates in order to shore up their imperfect candidate. Unfortunately for them (and us as well), this directly led to the election of Trump. Alas, we cannot focus on the DNC’s corruption if we decide that Russia is the ‘Big Bad’ of the week.
The DNC has used the ‘Russia’ narrative to also distract from the actions of its former head, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. She is currently embroiled in a scandal involving past employees of hers that she tried to protect. Her actions involving that situation are more proof that the Red Scare is nothing more than a bait-and-switch.
In summary, the Neoliberal disaster known as the DNC is trying to distract us from their corruption by bringing in the Russian Red Herring. They will succeed if we aren’t more discerning of their tactics. We have seen that the tactic has given us a Republican majority in the federal government already. The goal should be to focus more on fixing the incongruities of our electoral process more than the supposed hacking of the DNC’s servers by Russia.
