WASHINGTON, December 25, 2016 — “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” goes the old saying, and fondness for Russian President Vladimir Putin is growing in the hearts of those who have grown tired at the infantile whining of Democrats over their well-earned losses in recent elections.
“The current U.S. administration and leaders of the Democratic Party are trying to blame all their failures on outside factors,” said Putin at a year-end news conference. “We know that not only did the Democratic Party lose the presidential election, but also the Senate, where the Republicans have the majority, and Congress [the House], where the Republicans are also in control. Did we, or I also do that?”
The answer, of course, is no.
“It seems to me that [President Ronald] Reagan would be happy to see his party’s people winning everywhere, and would welcome the victory of the newly elected president so adept at catching the public mood, and who took precisely this direction and pressed onwards to the very end, even when no one except us believed he could win.”
The Russian press, like the American people, applauded.
Democratic Party haters don’t, of course, see it that way. Their irrational fear of Russians – Russophobia – renders them incapable of seeing that such loathing can create a backlash against Americans of Russian descent. Such fear mongering goes against the American value of inclusion, threatening to overturn our great “melting pot.”
And Putin admonished Democratic haters for hating the constitutional order bequeathed by our founders. “The call for the electors [of the Electoral College] not to vote for either candidate, in this case, not to vote for the president-elect,” said Putin, “was quite simply a step towards dividing the nation… They are losing on all fronts and looking for a scapegoat on whom to lay the blame. I think that this is an affront to their dignity. It is important to know how to lose gracefully.”
Democrats are so far removed from the constitutional roots of their country, they needed to be reminded of them by the last director of the Soviet KGB. He also reminded them that FDR, once revered among Democrats, “was an exceptional statesman in America and world history, who knew how to unite the nation even during the Great Depression’s bleakest years, in the late 1930s, and during World War II.”
Putin did not feel it necessary to mention that America’s alliance with Russia made the defeat of Adolf Hitler’s Germany inevitable. He presumed, erroneously, that Democrats remember history and are capable of learning from it.
The lesson to be gleaned from Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt’s alliance with Russian dictator Joseph Stalin, of course, is that sometimes it becomes necessary to ally one’s self with unsavory characters in order to vanquish even worse unsavory characters.
If it proves true Russian hackers in the employ of Vladimir Putin leaked information proving Hillary Clinton mishandled classified U.S. government secrets and that her party rigged its primary elections in her favor, it may signal, in the words of Humphrey Bogart in the classic war-time film “Casablanca,” “…the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
You may recall that Humphrey Bogart’s “friendship” with police Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) culminates in the shooting death of the evil Nazi Major Heinrich Strasser.
Come to think of it, America’s wartime friendship with Stalin culminated with Adolf Hitler dying in his Berlin bunker, a cyanide tablet in one hand and a Walther PPK pistol in the other.
It remains to be seen what self-destructive and desperate actions Democrats take while surrounded and alone in their ideological bunker, or whether Trump’s alleged “beautiful friendship” with Putin inspired Hillary to ask Santa for a shiny new Walther PPK this Christmas.
