One problem Putin and Trump face is the inability to use anything other than concrete language to try and elide their mutual policy positions. There’s a comic lack of subtlety in the anti-Semitic, anti-feminist cant bleeding through their pose as populists. Leftists. Campaign reform douchebros.
The champions of the wikileaks crap sound like shitfaced Cossacks looking to stir up a pogrom.

I always wondered which pores the Orthodox seminary training of Stalin would choose to seep through the placid murderous cool of Putin. How the death of the Soviet Union would warp its true believers- its bloody handed evangelicals. It’s in the insistence; the barely concealed hysterics of Putinians, and the miserable flailing of the Trump campaign.

My question is, how long did the Republican Party feed at that Russian tit? How far back?

Was Reagan trying to marginalize Gorbachev to destabilize the Soviet regime, or was he just looking for a more effective partner in a fresh Molotov–Ribbentropp pact?

The only thing I know is both Soviet anti-Semitism and Russian Federation anti-Semitism are currently the guiding doctrine of the Eurotrash and American Right. Judging from the pervasiveness and the uniformity of the message, the people who’ve crafted this approach to the dismantling of the postwar western consensus have been at this game since the ascendancy of the Romanovs.
