Mate, if I had the travel schedule of a US presidential nominee in their 70s I'd be a fat, depressed mess at the very least and I'm 38I'm 48 now, and sometimes I get a little gloomy about getting older, and about how the best times of my life might be in the past. US presidential candidates make me hopeful
Well there's a distinction between blaming Russia for stuff happening and what Russia wantsI just straight up don't buy anytime people try and blame Russia for 2016 or, now, 2020. I read the evidence, there's nothing there except unnamed FBI sources, Russian IP addresses and Facebook pages that less than 50 people liked. As a story it has legs though, say "Russia did it" and people of a certain age still think the USSR is going to start World War 3 and make everyone wear grey clothes.
Well, not quite.I could believe they're trying to stir shit but I don't really have an opinion on whether it's true or not. It's like shouting WOLF! or ANTISEMITISM! at this stage. I do still get a bit flabbergasted by the outrage from the US about election meddling.
When you believe in something you will write War & Peace on itlol sure
True, I'm just referring to the tendency, at least as I perceive it, to blame Russia for things not going as had been taken for grantedWell, not quite.
The Russians do have a paid group that do nothing but this and they work at the behest of Putin/Russian intelligence.
The IRA (super cool name).
They interfere in matters that serve Putin’s interest. So, it’s not like people are imagining they exist.
Antisemitism and the like are matters of definition and interpretation.
These IRA guys do exist and they do interfere.
It’s whether people like that they do it or not - or if they serve their worldview - is what colours their opinion of them.
You provided no evidence. Why should I argue with you?When you believe in something you will write War & Peace on it
When you're confronted with something you don't like, you resort to this piffle
