2. Bingo for jingoism

"... fully active (Kremlin) operation"?
the Nation Magazine?
With John Nichols, Rev. Wm. Barber II, Joan Walsh, Chris Hayes on the masthead?

Your DU post from Feb 2017, "We must be merciless" sums up your strategy with this OP: "...I have been torn between my ethical and positive self and my ruthless Machiavellian self...I believe that we have reached a time in history where Machiavellian power politics must be used...must beat the Trump Administration to the ground with allegations that Trump and his henchman are operatives of the Kremlin... At this point, it does not matter to me if this is true or not. It has the appearance of Truth, and there is a long history of Trump's involvement with Putin and Russia. "

I do agree that Dems need to be tough and aggressive but to stoop to the jingoist tarring of The Nation as a Kremlin operation needs to be called out.

No way I can acquiesce to such crude power politics. If like your manifesto, DU stops caring what is true and swerves to desperate smears just because of a zero-sum calculations, then DU will have lost.
