The nonstop corporate media propaganda vilifying Russia and supporting the Ukrainian Nazis has had a profound effect. Large numbers of the US and British publics now support the Nazis, even as they slaughter Eastern Ukrainians and level cities in the heart of Europe. As I have reported before, US support for the Nazis has been across the board, from the Hard Left all the way to the Hard Right. However, that seems to be falling apart. I did an impressionistic survey of comments on articles dealing with the Ukraine on Daily Kos and Alternet. Daily Kos is the website of the base of the Democratic Party, which is really the left wing of the Democratic Party. Although some in this group are critical of Obama, most of them pretty much support all Democrats against all Republicans in a partisan manner. A man named Markos runs the site, and he is a big Democratic Party insider. Alternet is to the left of the Democratic Party base. These are folks who are attacking Obama from the left and saying they will vote 3rd party. Results were that on Daily Kos: 55 45 In other words, the base of the Democratic Party is now evenly split, 50-50 on Ukraine. That’s not good news for Obama. I feel that this 50-50 split will widen in the coming days and more of the base goes over to the pro-Russian side. The Alternet results were: 77 23 So the US Left now strongly supports Russia and opposes the Ukraine. It took them a while to come around, but come around they did. What is fascinating is that huge numbers of Americans on the liberal-Left have managed to avoid being brainwashed by the constant anti-Russia, pro-Ukraine propaganda flooding out of the entire US corporate media with no exception. These people also had knowledge of many events that were never reported or reported falsely by the US media. Probably the only way they could have gotten those facts was via the Internet. So it turns out that many folks are getting their news from the Internet via non-MSM corporate sites (like this one)! This bodes very ill for the US Deep State, both parties, the US corporate media and the US corporate-imperialist elite. This elite stays in power in part via continuous brainwashing propaganda using the corporate media that they control. However, this media monopoly is now gone and Americans are no longer subject to brainwash and only brainwash. They have a media source that is completely out of the control of the US elite, running wild and exposing these American scums for exactly what they are. In other words, the elite is losing their control over us. Good news. However, expect to see some major initiatives by the US corporate-imperialist elite to deal with this problem by somehow taking over the Internet or censoring it somehow. We may even see arrests and harassment of journalists and DOS attacks on non-MSM news sites.
