“An intramural scrimmage between right-wing factions of the ruling elite”

I occasionally find the World Socialist Website tediously sectarian but they do have a very good take on Russiagate. Basically this is a war between white nationalists and neoconservatives, between Pat Buchanan and Dick Cheney.

The dispute, in other words, has been confined to an “intramural scrimmage” (as Obama put it after Trump’s election) between right-wing factions of the ruling elite. A major goal of the anti-Russian hysteria promoted by the Democrats has been to divert the broadly-felt popular hatred and hostility to Trump into a right-wing, pro-war framework, while serving to justify attacks on democratic rights.
