Leaked email urges progressives to paint Green Party candidate campaign as anti-science. An email published by CounterPunch last week appears to give advice on smearing Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein as anti-science. Evocative of the dialog between senior DNC staffers regarding Bernie Sanders, the email was sent by Robert Naiman, the Foreign Policy Director for the webzine Just Foreign Policy.

If you have a lot of Facebook friends, you may have recently noticed a high level of activity on your Facebook feed by Jill Stein acolytes.
If so, you may find the following links useful to throw them off their game. No warranty, express or implied. You don’t have to prove that Jill Stein is an anti-science conspiracy theorist. You just have to say, “There are unanswered questions about whether Jill Stein is an anti-science conspiracy theorist.”

In another email exchange, this time with Green Party organizer Kevin Zeese, Naiman threatens to “expose” Stein as “a Trokskyite cancer”. This charge will seem unusual to anyone familiar with the Marxist disciple.
“I’ll make you a deal: call off your dogs and I won’t further expose Jill Stein as a Trokskyite cancer.”
“People may wonder why suddenly everyone was saying Jill Stein is anti-vax — now we know it was a coordinated campaign,” Zeese told CounterPunch contributor Jeffrey St. Clair.
