Only after numerous outlets called out the Post’s changes did the newspaper finally append an editorial note at the very bottom of the article more than half a day later saying “An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Russian hackers had penetrated the U.S. electric grid. Authorities say there is no indication of that so far. The computer at Burlington Electric that was hacked was not attached to the grid.”
It’s not that Dugin is personally responsible for the hacks that are currently being explained as Putin’s personal vendetta against Clinton. But Dugin’s influential philosophy aligns very well with what seems to have happened and provides a stunning window into this and future conflicts with Russia. There are likely much deeper motives behind Russian actions.
Facing threats of legal action, the Washington Post has been forced to add an editor’s note distancing the paper from a dubious website, PropOrNot, which it had initially endorsed as a group of nonpartisan experts on “Russian propaganda.”
The Post came under fire on social media for its provocative hit piece which claimed that “Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda campaign” actually influenced the US presidential election.
N.Wahid Azal is a completely unstable fruitcake and the American Left is such a black hole of Gullibility that he could easily dominate the whole anti-Dugin narrative. As such, his turn to the Leftard side is actually a wonderful gift to the Eurasian cause. In the aftermath of Trump’s victory the left will turn straight to the Dugin-Putin-Trump conspiracy theory, just as it took refuge in 9/11 conspiracy theory during the Bush years. As such, “Enemies” like Glenn Beck and. N. Wahid Azal are worth their weight in gold, as the mainsteam narrative is utterly compromised because the messengers are batshit crazy, but we get the best kind of free advertising on earth.
