PROPAGANDA: CA Assemblyman Wants to Teach Students Russia 'Hand-Picked' Donald Trump...
Even with the inauguration last week and a smorgasbord of video evidence, leftists refuse to believe the Donald is President. The left has concocted every type of excuse to delegitimize Trump since he de-broomed Hillary in November. Everything from citing popular vote numbers, which are as relevant as the boyband Hansen, to marching on Washington dressed as vaginas. But, some on the left would rather look to the future by breaking out a classic, time-tested tactic... propaganda. A California Assemblyman wants to change the school curriculum, to have students taught that Russia hacked the 2016 election...
California Assemblymember Marc Levine (D) intends to introduce legislation to change school curricula to include the role of Russian hacking in the 2016 presidential election.
“Students need to understand how [President] Trump’s policies are colored by the way he rose to power,” said Levine.
He says he will introduce the “Pravda Act of 2017” within the next few weeks.
The consensus view of the United States intelligence agencies, private cybersecurity firms including CrowdStrike and FireEye, and most lawmakers is that Russia was behind breaches at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other political organizations. Files from the DNC and others were posted on WikiLeaks and leaked to conventional news outlets including The Hill.
“We have a duty to history to make it remember the Kremlin’s decision to hand pick a candidate,” said Levine.
Firstly, and this is key, as words matter, Russia hacked the DNC. Not the election. We even have a lead on how Russia hacked the DNC. They sent a phishing email to John Podesta, chief warlock of Hillary's campaign, urging him to reset his password. Podesta's IT wizards told him "That email is totes legit, bro. Open that shizzle and change yo password." And Podesta did.
Guess who's Podesta in this gif...
These are the people Madam Hillary appointed to lead her campaign for president, a position she sacrificed her soul for. They didn't recognize a phishing scheme. These are her top people. Think about who Hillary would've appointed to higher roles of government, with military clearances, designated with the safeguarding of our nation. A real mystery why she lost.
Anyway, the hackers hacked the DNC. The Democrat National Committee. Security doesn't seem to matter much to these people. Both in the cyber and real world. The Russians tried to also hack the RNC, but Republicans tend to favor security. Both in the cyber and real world. Ergo WikiLeaks didn't release information on the RNC like they did the DNC. It wasn't from lack of trying. Okay? Okay.
All of this is beside the ultimate point. Democrats lost the election because Americans decided on Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton. The Russians didn't hack the actual election. They released possibly damning information on Hillary Clinton. With that information, Americans went the other direction, in this case, Donald Trump. So it's terribly misleading to teach youngsters that Putin "hand picked" America's president. No. He didn't. See background information contained in previous two paragraphs.
Also, and I think I've mentioned this before, pretend you're America's enemy. Who do you want running the show? A candidate who's campaign chief falls for a simple phishing scheme? Or a candidate who's difficult to hack? Right.
Whether the hacker was Russia or Barron Trump makes no difference. The DNC and the Clintons were exposed as frauds, which never bodes well in elections. A little advice for you, Assemblyman. Instead of brainwashing impressionable youngsters with falsehoods, maybe mix things up and have your party run a candidate who isn't a chronic criminal.
Here is some of that damning information, by the way...
