Okay, let me see if I understand this. Those ten thousand articles in 
Alternet, CommonDreams, Huffington Post, Counterpunch, ZNet, Salon, 
Truthdig and Truthout calling attention to the internecine ties between 
Goldman-Sachs and the Clinton campaign were wrong. In reality, 
Goldman-Sachs was part of a stealthy faction under the leadership of 
Breitbart.com that preferred Trump because he wanted to "integrate 
Russia into the global capitalist system".

I don't mind vulgar Marxism if there is at least a modicum of 
intelligence at work. This is pure drivel.
