CalExit's Russian Connection

Since the left is playing, "Trump's a Russian agent games," this SF channel 7 report suggests the left has projection problems.  2/15/17 ABC 7:

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) --
It would be easy to dismiss this as some fringe group trying to make California into its own country, but former intelligence officials tell the ABC7 News I-Team the ballot initiative leader's ties to Russia raise serious questions.

"You don't need this to be involved in California's campaign for independence," Marinelli said holding up an American flag.

He's the leader of the Yes California campaign, also dubbed Calexit. Marinelli is an American who lives in Russia, but his movement is getting a lot of attention stateside.
Louis Marinelli has received support in Russia from a far-right nationalist group that wants to break up the United States. Former intelligence officials say that association raises serious questions about his intent.

No word from CNN or MSNBC or the New York branch of ABC? Is the Calexit Commie connection THAT embarrassing to the Leftists?

The Russians supporting Calexit aren't "commies." (And the black bloc rioters attacking pro-Trump crowds aren't "fascists.")

Why are they discriminating against this one guy?

After all, most of the Democrats in Sacramento are communists. They should get some tough love too!

Fascist: A term invented in the Twenties in the turmoil after WW2 as a "Third Way", neither Capitalist America or Communist Soviet Union. Instead of subsuming all ownership in the state, under Fascism citizens continue to own things, and the state regulates everything that they can do with their property. Douglas Miller describes this clearly in his 1941 book, "You Can't Do Business With Hitler". The other feature that follows from this is the idea of a "public-private partnership", widely used in both prewar Germany and Italy.

Clayton, you may remember a short-lived tv series from the Mid-Sixties called "Blue Light", starring Robert Goulet as an anti -nazi agent in pre-WW2 Germany. My mother hated that show, and said it is hard to be that brave in real life, where you can be arrested, imprisoned, tortured and killed. All the people protesting and calling President Trump a Nazi act as if they are stars of Blue Light and will always get away with what they are doing. They don't behave as if he were really a Nazi with real consequences for their actions.
