When you first hear that neocon Jews are claiming that Russians shitposting on social media is as bad as the bombing of Pearl Harbor, you might say, “that is insane! what the fuck is wrong with these twisted kikes???”
But hear them out.
In the 1940s, it was impossible to shitpost on Twitter because there were no internets.
However, if there had been internets at the time, it is very possible that instead of bombing Pearl Harbor, the Japanese would have simply used bots to plan a fake Black Lives Matter rally. Or whatever.
Following the underwhelming indictment of ‘Russian trolls’ for alleged meddling in the 2016 US elections, some US pundits have doubled down, comparing their actions to the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
Washington Post political columnist Karen Tumulty made the glib comparison in a piece published Sunday. While admitting there was “no loss of life,” Tumulty claimed Russia was guilty of “an act of war nonetheless, a sneak attack using 21st-century methods.”
There was no loss of life or destruction of a city in the Russian actions described in the indictment. But it was an act of war nonetheless, a sneak attack using 21st-century methods.

Tumulty lambasted President Donald Trump for ridiculing the hysteria over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of just 13 Russian individuals and organisations, none of which were linked to the Kremlin, for fraud and identity theft after a nine-month inquiry.
“Imagine how history would have judged Franklin D. Roosevelt in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, if he had taken to the radio airwaves to declare that Tokyo was ‘laughing their asses off,’” Tumulty ranted. “Or if George W. Bush had stood in the rubble of the World Trade Center with a bullhorn and launched a name-calling tirade against the Democrats.”
With 9/11 – yes, the internet existed at the time, but it was not advanced.
If Osama Bin Laden had an army of shitposting bots, he could have done a lot more damage than he did blowing up those towers.
Others chimed in too, including MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter and Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe. Without a hint of irony, Tribe said Americans should “LET THAT SINK IN” that Trump was yet to order the FBI to protect the country from imagined hordes of Russian internet trolls.
Imagine if FDR discounted the importance of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and focused on how his critics had no proof that he knew about it. #RussianPearlHarbor

These shitposting Twitter bots, who I guess tried to plan a BLM rally or a Trump protest or something – I tried to read the NYT article about it and got bored – launched the worst attack on America ever in all of history.
We must never forget the 13 Russian shitposters.
The only thing worse than this is the Holocaust.
