Author Max Blumenthal told Tucker Carlson on Monday night that the 'Trump-Russia narrative' is doing more damage to the left than to Donald Trump.
"I haven't seen any evidence. Rachel Maddow's dots may never connect," he explained first about the allegations.
He continued: "As someone on the left who has actually gone out and protested Trump, I didn't expect this hysteria to completely take over, but now I see what the point is of it.
"I see Trump as the apotheosis of a failed political establishment, both from the Republicans and the Democrats. Pushing corporate trade and permanent war, and I thought the Democrats should have responded with a big narrative against premanent war and for economic equality. Instead, they are pushing Russia scandal-mongering non-stop. It has subsumed all the progressive grassroots movements I believed in, and it has basically buried the left in a militaristic narrative."
"Mark my words, Tucker," he said. "When Trump is gone, this narrative, this Russia hysteria, will be repurposed by the political establishment to attack the left, and anyone on the left --Bernie Sanders-like politician-- who steps out of line on the issue of permenent war and corporate free trade. Anyone who steps out of line on those issues will be painted as a Russia puppet."
