It hasn’t been the Russians interfering in the U.S. election process.
It was the British, and a host of Americans.
So says U.K. politician, author, journalist and broadcaster George Galloway in his TV show.
He makes a pretty convincing argument in a transcript of his show detailing how the British and the usual American suspects — the Military Industrial Complex, the spy agencies, “the war party personified by Senator John McCain” — along with Liberals who are now willing to embrace the aforementioned have it in for President-elect Donald Trump.
He says if he were Trump, he “wouldn’t be going near any grassy knolls … wouldn’t be on any motorcades in Dallas or anywhere else … wouldn’t be traveling in an open-top car.”
He says “that bizarre coalition of the War Party, the Liberals, the spy agencies, the Military Industrial Complex … stands to lose almost everything if tension in the world, and war in the world, becomes a thing of the past. That is a very toxic and dangerous coalition.”
And that’s what it is all about, according to Mr. Galloway. The coalition doesn’t want Trump to make peace with the Russians.
But if Trump survives and fulfills his mandate, he might actually change the course of history in a positive way, Galloway says.
“Because it was a wish amongst wide sections of the American population not to go to war with Russia, not to be on the side of Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria and to stop the de-industrialization, the de-skilling, the exporting of factories of jobs from America, from the rustbelt states that gave Trump his victory. If he follows through on their aspiration, if he follows the kind of policies that Bernie Sanders is projecting, well, Trump may turn out to be unexpectedly a good thing.”
Yes, Trump wants to make peace with Russia. Would you rather he made war with them?
