In this week's article, I discuss the Russia troll double standard. When Russian information campaigns promoted Bernie Sanders or Black Lives Matter, that's not seen as a reflection on them. But when they promote those on the right, that is deemed to delegitimize them.
And this is a perfect example.
Here's Michael Moore calling Trump a Russian traitor.
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore blasted President Trump on Tuesday, calling the commander in chief a "Russian traitor" while urging him to "vacate" the White House.
"What part of 'vacate you Russian traitor' don't you understand? We can do this the easy way (you resign), or the hard way (impeachment)," he added later.
I doubt Michael Moore believes this nonsense. But he did put it out there. And glass houses, rocks, etc...
Michael Moore, the polemical filmmaker who has long accused President Trump of colluding with Russians, posted videos and pictures of himself participating in a protest in Manhattan that was allegedly organized by Russians in November 2016.
Prosecutors said Friday that the Russians indicted for meddling in the presidential campaign were also behind anti-Trump rallies that occurred after the election.
The government alleged in an indictment signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that the defendants organized a Nov. 12 “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York. Their “strategic goal” was to “sow discord in the U.S. political system,” the indictment said.
On Nov. 12, Moore tweeted: "At today's Trump Tower protest. He wouldn't come down."
He attached a picture of himself posing with a large number of protesters.
Does that make Michael Moore a Russian traitor? By his own standards, it does.
