| The Siberian Candidate - Do the Democrats and the New York Times seem a bit paranoid?
| Wednesday, July 27, 2016
|This has been a weird election season, but this week it
turned just plain crazy, with paranoia typical of Iraqi, Iranian, or
In those countries, every failure gets blamed on a
plot. Crops fail, oil prices plummet, the economy tanks? It must be the
fault of Israel, the Jews, the Americans. You, Ali, don’t succeed?
Others have plotted against you. Heaven forbid that blame falls where it
belongs—on the corrupt and incompetent government, the tyrannical
monarch, on any definable individual.
So now America’s Democratic Party is in disarray over
leaked e-mails showing that the Democratic National Committee actually
did put a heavy thumb on candidate Hillary Clinton’s scale, conspiring
against her opponent, Vermont socialist senator Bernie Sanders, to make
doubly sure he didn’t win the nomination. Infuriated left-wing Democrats
called for the head of party chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who had
intended to resign after the nominating convention in Philadelphia.
But, shouted down by enraged Bernie-ites, as if she were some
conservative speaker at an Ivy League graduation ceremony, Congresswoman
Schultz resigned her gavel there and then.
The Democrats then had to deal with the embarrassing
truth that the national committee did indeed conspire against the
septuagenarian socialist. They were even prepared to use his religion
against him, though whether his Jewish birth or his purportedly atheist
beliefs were disqualifying, the leaked documents don’t make clear.
in good Middle Eastern style, the Democrats shifted the blame away from
themselves—away from their own shady dealings—to . . . a plot! Why were
the e-mails leaked? A plot! A plot to elect Republican Donald Trump.
And, again in good Middle Eastern style, it was a plot orchestrated by
malign foreign powers to harm America. Those nefarious Russians, our
perennial adversary, had done the hacking, with the express intent of
blocking Hillary Clinton’s election.
