Neocon Propagandist Accuses Texas “Right Wingers” of being Tools of Vladimir Putin



Since the onset of hostilities in Ukraine last winter, the Obama regime and the State Department have been churning out some real whoppers in order to juice arms sales to European client states. The reviled Russian leader Vladimir Putin has become America’s version of Emmanuel Goldstein and the shills in the media ministry of propaganda are eager to provide the woefully uninformed sheep with their “Two Minutes Hate” to jump start the Cold War.

The prime motivation behind foolishly instigating a conflict with a nuclear armed Russia always seems to have been based on profiteering from perpetual warfare at the expense of providing anything of value to Americans who are being screwed daily by their corrupt government. Now we have the greatest whopper of them all being fed into the media lie machine and it coincides perfectly with the Obama occupying government’s soon to be launched war on dissidents that is being piggybacked onto the national backlash against the Confederate flag. We are now being told to believe that Putin himself is behind the Texas secessionist movement and other dissident groups.

According to a story published by Politico Magazine entitled “Putin’s Plot to Get Texas to Secede” the Kremlin has infiltrated the Lone Star State in something that is so ludicrous that it would be shot down by Hollywood were it a movie script as being beyond belief. The piece, written by one of those payrolled hacks that are so often used ever since the laws against the U.S. government propagandizing its own people were quietly repealed two years ago is a real doozy. A masterpiece of bullshit that you practically need to wear a ventilator to slog through so odious is the piece.

I excerpt the following from “Putin’s Plot to Get Texas to Secede”:
Nathan Smith, who styles himself the “foreign minister” for the Texas Nationalist Movement, appeared last Spring at a far-right confab in St. Petersburg, Russia. Despite roaming around in his cowboy hat, Smith managed to keep a low-key presence at the conference, which was dominated by fascists and neo-Nazis railing against Western decadence. But at least one Russian newspaper, Vzglyad, caught up with the American, noted that TNM is “hardly a marginal group,”and quoted Smith liberally on the excellent prospects for a partial breakup of the United States. Smith declared that the Texas National Movement has 250,000 supporters—including all the Texans currently serving in the U.S. Army—and they all “identify themselves first and foremost as Texans” but are being forced to remain Americans.  The United States, he added, “is not a democracy, but a dictatorship.”  The Kremlin’s famed troll farms took the interview and ran with it, with dozens of bots instantly tweeting about a “Free Texas.”

For Russians, this was delicious payback. Since the breakup of the Soviet Union two decades ago, many Russians have come to blame the United States for their plight; a seething resentment over U.S. culpability in the loss of Russian national power is one of the reasons Vladimir Putin is so popular. It has only worsened since the United States has led an international effort to isolate and sanction Moscow over its annexation of Crimea and incursions into eastern Ukraine.

And

It’s unclear just how high up these propaganda efforts go in the Kremlin. But it can hardly be an accident that last December, in the midst of the ruble’s parlous plummet, Russian President Vladimir Putin lashed out at putative Western hypocrisy. “As soon as they succeed in putting [our bear] on a chain, they will rip out his teeth and his claws,” the president growled.
The think tank dweeb who wrote this steaming pile of horseshit is a guy named Casey Michel (rhymes with Michelle) who seems to have found his calling and the admission that “It’s unclear just how high up these propaganda efforts go in the Kremlin” is such vintage bullshit – unattributed sources, rank speculation – that it could have been uttered by Obama himself.

The entire thing can be read here but unless you have a high tolerance for bullshit you may want to stay away. It is a very interesting bit of timing in that Texans are antsy about what for all intents appears to be a live martial law exercise called Jade Helm that is about to go down. While the feds and their media propagandists have gone to great lengths to demonize anyone who questions Jade Helm as a crank, a tin foil hatter and a conspiracy theorist there is a long history of a fondness for martial law with the feds. It was after all Democratic party hero Franklin D. Roosevelt who rounded up innocent Japanese Americans during World War II, stripped them of their liberty and property and put them into internment camps. There were also programs like Lt. Colonel Oliver North’s REX 84 and God only knows what other sort of schemes have been drawn up for the day that the shit hits the fan.

So now it is really getting bad because once hostilities inevitably develop with Russia, and they are well on the way thanks to Obama’s lunatic Defense Secretary Ash Carter (can’t we bring back someone rational like Donald Rumsfeld?) who has been sliming around in Europe to sell American arms to NATO countries. Once Putin officially goes from being just a guy who humiliated Obama by forcing him to eat a shit sandwich with a vodka chaser by sinking the 2013 attack on Syria into the leader of a country that the U.S. is officially at war with what do you think is going to happen to Texas secessionists and those who dare to question operations like Jade Helm?
