Russian connections to the alt-right

I've been noticing this for a few years; the most polarizing stories seem to originate from sites tied to Russia.

If we take this election lying down, we might not be allowed to get back up; it can happen here.

“I really believe that Russia is the leader of the free world right now," Heimbach told Business Insider in a recent interview. "Putin is supporting nationalists around the world and building an anti-globalist alliance, while promoting traditional values and self-determination."

And while he views Russia as a "model for civilization" and "a beacon for nationalists," Heimbach emphasized that the movement goes beyond Russia and traditional left-right politics.

Okay, now Kelly Anne is trolling us...

...and I hope we don't bite. She wants us fighting each other instead of her monkey.

Kellyanne Conway: Race would have been tougher if Sanders was VP pick

"Yes," she told Tapper during a special edition of CNN's "State of the Union," filmed at Harvard University's Institute of Politics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "And Bernie Sanders -- I'd also like to publicly thank Bernie Sanders for his effect on our campaign because he softened up Hillary Clinton. He won 22 states and 13 million voters, and that ain't nothing."

Dem blame game rages over Clinton loss

Dem blame game rages over Clinton loss

There are already people doing this arguing crap for us so we don't need to do it here. I've mostly been ignoring threads bashing Hillary (I supported her in the primaries) and I'm pretty sure I haven't posted in any Bernie trashing threads either. We can't relitigate the primary forever.

Trump's Victory Has Fearful Minorities Buying Up Guns

I'm now picturing an obnoxious Trumplet thinking he's going to scare a skinny vegan with glasses and getting shot.

And I mean no offense to skinny people, vegans or the near/far sighted.

Russia and Trump use the same tactics

Remember how Trump would accuse Hillary of something and then a week later information would come out that he did that exact something? Look what Russia says now:

Russia accuses Ukraine of sabotaging Trump

This doesn't make me suspicious at all.
