Well now that Congressman John Lewis has declared the Trump presidency “illegitimate”, that icon of civil rights and registration-free voting has attracted more Democrat politicians to join him on the leftwing's bandwagon to oppose our new president. Lewis’ contention is that the election is illegitimate due to Russia’s "conspiracy" to oppose Clinton, thereby aiding Trump. (here)
What I have been waiting to hear some pundit or nationally prominent journalist contribute to these reports of Russian participation, now elevated to conspiratorial heights, is a description of the means by which their activities torpedoed Hillary’s candicacy. We are taught that bad guys are indicted through establishment of their motive, opportunity, and means (MOM) for carrying out their dastardly deed.
Now posit with our intelligence community that Russia and/or her commissioned agents, along with anyone else with very modest knowledge about penetrating undefended servers, did actually hack the DNC and Clinton Foundation emails. What then? By what means would they reach America’s Democrat constituents to sway their votes away from Hillary. Here we have to understand the make-up of the audience targeted by this supposed conspiracy. These are people, especially the Millennials contingent, who among their other intellectual deficits have short attention spans (here), are characterized by their drastically deficient knowledge base, and who don’t follow current events until, charitably, just before the election. They are mostly what may be termed slogan-cemented voters.
