Is Dmitry Babich Right? RT's CrossTalk

On RT's CrossTalk (Peter Lavell) Dmitry Babich (an inveterate 'Kremlin propagandist' but even a broken clock is right twice a day) asks a relevant question (paraphrased from memory):

Is the DNC (and Oligarchy RINOs) doing to US heartland (Trump) supporters what the US has been doing to other democracies worldwide for decades?

What sayeth yee all?

  1. Hollowing out the world economy has been the modus operendi since WWII and the Marshall Plan. Now I'll grant you that the world needed to "bootstrap" their economies in the immediate aftermath of WWII's devastation... by why do the policies implemented continue to this day? It's crazy.

    1. The installation of the post-WW II Order, as supported by the US was a Good Thing, but it also made the US a Superpower.

      Now with the 'Unipolar moment' it seems the US is after Full Spectrum Dominance.

      It doesn't seem to be boding so well for Mordor, right now though...

    2. Well, not everyone is embracing the shift from Roman "republic" to "imperium". Where's "Brutus" (John Adams) when you need him?

  2. The DNC hasn't been in the US heartland for decades. Not since the labor movement was destroyed in the 80's.

    1. The result of the 'meritocratic doctrine', no doubt...

      The Clinton's have sooooo much to answer for, IMO...

    2. The Clintons? They were later, nominal players. Part of the New Democrat movement that started in the 80's, moving the party to the right in the belief the country was heading that way. Go along get along. They called it "triangulation," or some such nonsense.

      The economic/political landscape you see today is really just the same Milton Friedman school in action since the mid-70's. An incessant war on inflation, with the middle class and upward mobility the collateral damage.

    4. The midwest is agricultural. They're ALL kulaks. They aren't "proles". The problem with your "model" is that it targets "urban" workers, not petite bourgeois "kulaks".

    5. My mother's family owned and farmed private small farms in the midwest for 100 years. I got my start in life w/40 acres, inherited from my mom, and sold back to my uncle who farmed it.
