WASHINGTON, D.C. (Accredited Times) – The Daily Kos/Black Lives Matter scandal exploded early Monday morning as anonymous sources raised the prospect of Russian collusion and possible obstruction of justice in new bombshell developments in the case.
The Daily Kos has faced an avalanche of controversy from progressive activists in recent days for its apparent efforts to silence Black Lives Matter. The racially charged controversy erupted late last Thursday when Accredited Times commentator Black Lives Matter (“BLM”) posted an article, Death By Cop, to the Daily Kos. Daily Kos users wrote glowingly of the article, but Daily Kos moderators nonetheless sought to silence BLM from using the phrase “Black Lives Matter” in an apparent effort to stymie the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Are you saying that I can’t say BLACK LIVES MATTER?” BLM asked late last Thursday. “I will keep saying BLACK LIVES MATTER over and over again until the day I die. I don’t care if you attempt to censor us or stop us from saying it.”
Now anonymous sources have raised the prospect of Russian collusion and possibly even obstruction of justice.
“I think the Daily Kos elites just hate Black Lives Matter”, one anonymous source told us. “They were originally open to the movement, but when Black Lives Matter shut down a Bernie Sanders event during the election campaign, that was it for them. The Daily Kos and other affiliated media outlets have mostly been on radio silence about the Black Lives Matter movement since then”.
Another anonymous source raised the prospect of obstruction of justice, a felony under federal law. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1512(b)(3), “Whoever knowingly uses intimidation, threats, or corruptly persuades another person, or attempts to do so, or engages in misleading conduct toward another person with intent to . . . hinder, delay, or prevent the communication to a law enforcement officer or judge of the United States of information relating to the commission or possible commission of a Federal offense . . . shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both”.
Legal experts told us that an obstruction argument would be “frivolous”, meaning groundless, because there was no actual hindrance of any communication to any law enforcement officer relating to the commission of an actual federal offense. Progressive activists, however, have argued strenuously that the Daily Kos “knowingly” threatened Black Lives Matter and that the threats should result in a criminal indictment.
According to one anonymous source, the prospect of obstruction indicates the possible involvement of yet another unwelcome character: Vladimir Putin.
“There isn’t any actual evidence of Russian involvement in the Daily Kos scandal — no witnesses, no emails, no memos, no documents, nothing. They haven’t even proved that the Russians hacked the Daily Kos website. But, hey, that didn’t stop those idiots from making the same stupid arguments about Trump, so why not?” one anonymous source wondered.
The racial controversy has triggered progressives around the world and threatened the Daily Kos’ polling numbers. “Actually, we found that the Daily Kos’ readership numbers are unchanged, but again those idiots write the same stupid crap about Donald Trump every day, so why not make the same same stupid argument in your idiotic ‘objective’ article?” the same anonymous source asked.
Experts remained skeptical of the situation, a turn of events that could spell doom for people we dislike. “Come on, you idiots don’t actually even have any anonymous sources or experts with any real information, do you?” the same anonymous source prodded. “Those are just your friends making up whatever stupid crap you want to write”.
