Sorry, but this has little to do with them - as I pointed out before, all of the above groups have been known for years - we've known about the Russians since 2016, and they're the *newest* of these groups.

BTW, the Hoteps *might* like Booker, it'll vary by the individual, but it'll be because he's a black *man*, not because of policy.

Yes but my point is there may be other critics who could they could marginalize by associating them with Russian trolls.

If those other critics are also primarily concerned with their race, I'm fine with them being marginalized.

Well, if they do so, folks will call them out on it. But so far, they both stick to issues unless asked about this "are you black enough" nonsense directly - and I've only seen (a visibly annoyed) Harris even being asked it. Truth told, the only 2020 candidate that has fully embraced any of the four groups I mentioned has been Dolt 45 - even Sanders doesn't like the more obnoxious Bernie Bros.
