If you criticized Democrat Hillary Clinton, then you’re a “de facto Russian propagandist,” according to Peter Daou, the Clinton sycophant who created Verritt.com, a site Politico said “looks like North Korean agitprop.”
“SIMPLY PUT: If you spread the idea that Hillary Clinton is a horrible monster, you were a de facto Russian propagandist. Congratulations,” he tweeted on Monday.

Apparently, Daou must think there’s millions and millions of Russian propagandists in the country.
Never mind that Hillary — besides being the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party — carries more baggage than a freight train can carry. Remember, this is a woman who, for more than 40 years, has lied and schemed her way to the top and is now blaming everything and everyone for her 2016 loss.
A post at Medium by Caitlin Johnstone observes:
Daou, who was charitably referred to as “the weirdest man alive” in a recent article by The Outline, has been propelled into popularity by the establishment machine, and nobody really knows why. He’s failed at everything he’s been involved in, including his remarkably unpopular Clintonist propaganda site Verrit, and the mental vacuity of his online presence often makes it seem like he’s only there to make Kurt Eichenwald look smart. The fact that he keeps failing upward within the Democratic party establishment despite zero qualifications and no discernible redeeming characteristics — even gaining public endorsements of his projects from Her Majesty Hillary Herself — means that he is someone whose words the Democratic establishment wants you to listen to. When he tweets, he is speaking ex cathedra on behalf of the entire Clintonist religion.
“This is important to make clear, because after a year of McCarthyite accusations smearing political opponents as Kremlin agents and Russian propagandists, the Clinton cult has finally had its official spokesperson publicly define exactly what criteria it is using when it affixes these labels to people. Turns out, the official Blue Church definition of a Russian propagandist is literally anyone who has ever had the temerity to speak ill of Hillary Clinton,” she wrote.
Of course, he’s not the only one to call Clinton critics Russian propagandists, as we reported here and here. And let’s not forget, Hillary herself even floated a crazy conspiracy theory that Putin may have been guided by Americans — maybe even Trump.
The new McCarthyism has decimated political discourse in the wake of the presidential elections last year. The fact that there are now millions of Americans who honestly believe that it is perfectly sensible and acceptable to accuse someone of being a Russian propagandist when they don’t agree with your political worldview has made debate with establishment liberals virtually impossible, and has ended up strengthening the walls of everyone’s partisan echo chambers to an often unassailable extent.
These wedge tactics have always benefitted the establishment whose survival depends upon preventing people from coming together and overthrowing the oligarchy. Luckily with this agenda, as with everything, we can always count on Peter Daou to fail.
As one person told Daou:
Nope. #Hillary herself revealed her monstrousness. The rest of us simply discussed it – in good old American English.

Bingo. The fact is, Hillary was her own worst enemy. Fortunately, voters didn’t buy her snake oil.
