I guess they were hoping we would forget all the decades of the Democrats running interference for the Soviets, and the Left’s history of fighting for commies all over the world.

The hypocrisy of the Democratic Russia hawks

Those unpredictable Democrats. Now they are Russia hawks.

But during the Cold War, when the Soviet Union posed an existential threat to our democracy, not so much. Most Democrats opposed the Reagan policies that led to the fall of the Soviet empire. They fought the Reagan defense buildup and his Strategic Defense Initiative (which Sen. Edward Kennedy dismissed as “Star Wars” and Sen. John Kerry called “a dream based on illusion”). They supported the Soviet-supported nuclear freeze movement and opposed Reagan’s deployment of intermediate-range nuclear missiles to Western Europe. They criticized Reagan’s efforts to arm freedom fighters seeking to overthrow Soviet puppet regimes and support to pro-American governments fighting communist insurgencies.

Old habits of appeasement die hard, so when the Cold War ended the Democrats continued their soft line toward Moscow. Democratic opposition to President George W. Bush’s withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty was more strident than that of Vladimir Putin. There was virtual silence from Democrats when President Barack Obama callously threw Poland and the Czech Republic under the bus by canceling our missile defense agreements in an effort to appease Moscow.
In 2012, when Mitt Romney called Russia our “No. 1 geopolitical foe,” Democrats mocked him mercilessly. Obama told Romney, “The 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” And Vice President Joe Biden said Romney “acts like he thinks the Cold War is still on.” The Republican focus on Russia was considered laughable by most Democrats.

Not only did Democrats oppose Reagan’s policies, they heaped scorn on his blunt anti-Communist rhetoric. After Reagan called on the Soviets to “tear down” the Berlin Wall, Democratic House Speaker Jim Wright declared that he had “utter contempt for Reagan” because he had “spoiled the chance for a dramatic breakthrough in relations between our two countries.”

Have you been in a fucking coma the last 10 years? We Democrats have been yelling at Republicans since before 2016 because of your party colluding with Russia to destroy American Democracy.

Now sit down and be quiet.

Once this over and midterms approach expect to see democrats bad mouthing Russians so they can connect the dots to trump again if he officially announced he is running again.

This whole nationwide hate of Russia will also guarantee a burial of all that hillary and Russian connection stuff. This is a gift from god for her right now. The slate will be wiped clean thanks to the current trend of hating Russia.

It wasn't long ago when the kenyan lawn jockey and hildebeest were selling the Russians our uranium stockpile.

And who could ever forget this spectacle. The famous "reset".... except the word they used in Russian translates to "overcharge". OMG are these dumbest mother fuckers to ever knuckledrag this planet?

Funny how you’re trying to gaslight us, after weeks of Putin-love!

Is that why Hillary gave them a "Reset" button and Obama wanted to be flexible?
Because Russia was evil?

Funny how the Republicans and right openly admit being pro-Russia, speaking out in Putin support as Russia once again invades another neighboring country.

Repeats the LIE that Reagan policies caused the demise of the Soviet Union
Facts are that the USSR took no economic actions as a result of Reagans policies

Realistically, there is nothing Reagan could have done to cause an economic collapse in a few years

The Soviet Economy had been collapsing for decades and was exacerbated by its ten year occupation of Afghanistan
