    What’s funny is that the Iranians are trying to use the DEMSM against Trump while the DEMSM is trying to use the Iranians against Trump but what actually appears to be happening is the Trump is using the Iranians against the DEMSM.
    And doing his job while he’s doing it. Which is cool.

    Love that by the way.
    Minitrue fits but it sounds all conspiracy but DEMSM is just an accurate descriptive that most Americans can accept these days.

    Personally, I would use DIMSM, but that’s just me.

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that while the US may have “cut off the arm” of assassinated Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani, Iran will respond by severing America’s “leg” in the region.

    DEMSM is a good term. It’s just redundant enough to remind us how tightly the two groups are joined. “Enemedia” was good too, but didn’t spell it out bluntly enough. After all, that enemy could be Iran. Or Russia. Maybe use both together, but that might be touching the impatient TL:DR of our culture.

    Nice try, Doug, but we know those are not real quotes from AOC. Not enough, “Like, you know’s” and the sentences actually make a point without rambling on and on.
