The State Department Left has been waiting with knives drawn for an opportunity to smear @richimedhurst ever since he burst onto the scene with his excellent, impassioned criticisms of western imperialism, and they pounced the instant they saw an opportunity. That's all this is.
The smear campaign against Medhurst is being led by the same small clique of bad faith actors I was talking about when I wrote this thread a few days ago. It's the same few accounts every goddamn time.
Any time an exciting new anti-imperialist voice appears on the scene, you will with absolute certainty see smear campaigns directed at them at some point. It WILL happen. They wait for an opportunity, any opportunity, then they pounce. Don't buy it, don't feed into it.
