The deep state’s favorite conspiracy theory is back and whackier than ever.
Even in the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic and policing crisis, the McCarthy-era Red Scare 2.0 is still going strong. From the oligarchs’ perspective, Cold War-style fear-mongering substitutes nicely for having to actually govern.
[…] In a narrative almost too stupid to earnestly absorb, the CIA stooges who spoon-feed talking points to vegetative news actors now claim that they caught the Russians red-handed paying bounties to Afghan militants in exchange for dead American Empire soldiers.
The claim is laughably absurd on its face for obvious reasons that any critical journalist could discern in half a minute.
