Norman Solomon — Democrats Launch New McCarthyism

Unwilling to examine the real reasons why Democrats did so poorly on Election Day, party leaders in Congress are scapegoating Russia and setting in motion a new McCarthyism, writes Norman Solomon.
Unwilling to examine the real reasons = unwilling to take responsibility. Deep psychological denial and childish behavioral traits.

Of course, it is not only Democrats that are involved. A large swath of the GOP is Russophobic and is looking to head Donald Trump off at the pass before he can get cozy with Putin and work a deal that would reduce tensions and defense budgets.
