Putin says George Floyd protests reveal deep-seated internal crises in US

The problem here is that party interests are in this case put ahead of the interests of the whole society and the interests of the people.

Via RT…

Large-scale protests in the US are a result of deep-seated problems in society, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, noting that tensions have been developing since the Democrats’ failure to accept defeat to Donald Trump.

“What has happened is a manifestation of some deep-seated internal crises in that country,” Putin said about the massive and often violent protests against police brutality, which engulfed the US after African American man, George Floyd, died during his arrest in Minneapolis in late May.

Things have been like that in America “for a long time,” since Donald Trump became president in 2016, the Russian leader said in an interview with Rossiya 1 channel that’s yet to be released in full.

When Trump won his seat in the White House “absolutely obviously, by democratic means, the losing side came up with some fairytales to somehow question his legitimacy,” he pointed out.

The problem here is that party interests are in this case put ahead of the interests of the whole society and the interests of the people.

Putin said he was surprised by how some US governors neglected the decisions made by Trump during the Covid-19 crisis and the protests.

Democracy is the rule of the people and the supreme authority they elect has every right to set up the work of the executive bodies in such a manner that it would guarantee the interests of the vast majority of the population, he stressed. “And what’s happening there [in the US]? The president says: ‘This and that should be done,’ but the local governors say: ‘Go to hell!'”

Here are some interesting comments from Vladimir Putin about how Russia views American exceptionalism:

It is always interesting to listen to the “other side” of the Russia-America geopolitical divide since the Russian version of the story rarely makes it to the Western mainstream media.

Simple way to describe it for anyone with a rational view of it all. It’s a cult.

I was born into these crises and they still persist basically unchanged, other than at birth black mayors, police chiefs or police, university heads, governors or presidents were de facto if not de jure repressed. Now they’re in abundance and yet, nothing much has changed. At what point do you think about apportioning blame to those who never blame themselves?

Here’s how to make anything from Putin look nefarious and absurd.

In a way, this from the BBC is even funnier:   David Whelan, meanwhile, has dismissed the allegations as nonsense. “I can’t imagine how someone with a law enforcement background who is also a former US Marine, and who is now working in corporate security and is also aware of the risks of travel, would have broken any law let alone the law related to espionage,” he said.   Yet earlier in the article: But in 2008 Mr Whelan, who had achieved the rank of staff sergeant, was discharged from the marines for bad conduct. The Pentagon, which released his… Read more »

Here’s another doozy of agitprop from that outstanding outlet, the Daily Beast:

No point reading the article, it’s all in the headline.

Why is he an ‘unlikely’ spy? Is it because with 4 passports and a history with the military, the police and security services, along with a strange attraction to Russian men with military service histories of their own, he was too obvious a candidate to be a spy?
 
That argument sounds a bit like spylike disinformation itself, no?

Well, at least the Russians didn’t kidnap him from some other country and whisk him back for a kangaroo trial like some other countries we know.
