Indirect ping

I just noticed something while reading Greenwald’s latest piece on the completely irrelevant Taylor Whatever Doxing thing.

Greenwald bounces off the original subject into the big problem with “journalism”, and tells about his own awakening in the Vietnam era when journalism switched from 80% DNC to 100% DNC partisanship.

Here’s the sudden ping, which isn’t really connected to Greenwald’s narrative.

= = = = =

Fact: We were really fighting against China in both Korea and Vietnam. We convinced our people that we were fighting Russia, but Russia was only a secondary helper. Our soldiers were up against Chinese soldiers in both places.

Fact: Russia and China were competing for influence, then as now. They were NOT a united front against the West. The Balkan region switched from Russia to China in the ’60s, and the ‘non-aligned’ countries in Africa and Latin America were also switching sides for advantage.

Ping:

AFTER WE LOST THE WAR WITH CHINA, NIXON IMMEDIATELY STARTED SURRENDERING OUR ECONOMY TO CHINA.

This was a plain old-fashioned unconditional surrender, like Germany at Versailles.

None of this shit was about Russia.

(Actually this is a ping-pong, not a ping.)
