Eric Garland+ Your Authors @ericgarland Intelligence analyst and advisor to CEOs and governments. I break down global events into clear narratives and appropriate profanity. Jul. 28, 2019 1 min read + Your Authors

Absolutely. This is why we REFLEXIVELY let the bad guys frame the narrative when it's something we care about, like stomping out racism.

But it's a trap: focus on Trump's real, legal weaknesses, or let racism pass unopposed.

It's a false choice that THEY are making. Take back the power. Acknowledge that racism/sexism etc. are abhorrent and focus back on that which is prosecutable, that which leads to impeachment.

And Neil's wording here is perfect: Russian tactics. Doesn't mean it's Russians behind them; they've spread the techniques of disinformation, computational propaganda, and silent decomposition far and wide.

Learn to recognize the repetitive, uncreative patterns - and fight on.
