We’ve reached the point where any questioning of the official narrative (or voicing any support whatsoever for Mr. Trump) immediately gets the writer labeled as a “Russian Troll”.

Hm.

  1. There are 320M people in the US. Roughly 80% of those are adults.
  2. 80% * 320M = 256M.
  3. According to the most recent RCP polling, 41.8% of the American population approves of Mr. Trump.
  4. So, lessee….. 256M * 41.8% …… There are, therefore, AT LEAST 107,000,000 russian trolls in the US.
  5. Now, if you add in the people who don’t approve of Mr. Trump, but also who don’t accept the neocon narrative……
  6. Well, no way to calculate that, but it appears that there are something north of 125,000,000–150,000,000 Russian trolls living in the US.

(Which, as was pointed out by a commentor, means that there are as many Russian trolls in the US, possibly, as their are Russians in Russia. :-)

That’s a lot of trolls. Maybe, just MAYBE, they’re not Russian trolls, but rational, concerned citizens who would prefer (oh, I don’t know….) to not pursue policies that could get us all killed?

Color us crazy. :-)
