Disinfo: British Round Table Movement has infiltrated America

Summary

While there has been a long-standing narrative promoted for over 70 years that the British Empire disappeared after World War II having been replaced by the “American Empire”, it is the furthest thing from the truth. Henry Kissinger’s takeover of the State Department ushered in a new era of British occupation of American foreign policy, whereby the republic increasingly became the “Dumb Giant” acting as “American Brawn for the British brains” using Churchill’s words. The policy of Anglo-Saxon imperialism had been promoted subversively by British-run think tanks known as the Round Table Movement and Fabian Society, and the seeds had already been laid for the anti-Russian cold war by those British-run American fascists. While a nihilistic generation of youth were tuning in on LSD, and an old guard of patriots surrounding Wallace and Kennedy had fallen to the “red scare” witch hunt, geopolitical theory was fed like a sweet poison down the throat of a sleeping nation, replacing a policy of peace and “win-win cooperation” with an imperial clone masquerading as a republic.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence. A pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative linking Britain and Russophobia. This message is consistent with a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative that the “deep state” and “shadow government” control the work of democratic institutions in the United States. Here are some other examples of this narrative: “Deep state” fighting with Trump (here and here); “Deep state” shaping the US foreign policy (here).

No reputable political scientists and researchers confirm the existence of a “deep state” in the United States.

The US is a dictatorship

The American Government is not responsive to what the public wants; it is responsive only to what the politically involved super-rich — the people who mainly fund politics — want. And those billionaires also control, or even own, all of the major ’news’ media, and so their propaganda filters-out such realities as that the country is a dictatorship, no democracy at all.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence. Claiming the media and government is under total control by shadowy rulers is a common trope in pro-Kremlin disinformation.

Anti-Russian protests in Georgia provoked by the George Soros' Open Society Foundation

The foundation of the well-known philanthropist George Soros Open Society is to blame for the anti-Russian protests in Georgia. On 20 June, the organisation openly called on Georgians to protest. After that, provocations against Russia began in Tbilisi.

Disproof

This is another conspiracy theory followed by the Russian media. Western non-governmental organisations are often targeted by pro-Kremlin disinformation. Propaganda often accuses George Soros of organising anti-Russian protests because of his support for democracy and human rights in dozens of countries around the world. Protests in Georgia began on the night of 21 June; discontent in Georgia was provoked by the visit of a Russian delegation to Tbilisi to participate in the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy. Following this, indignant civilian activists who accused Russia of occupying Georgian territories gathered outside the Georgian parliament. The Soros Open Society Foundation has nothing to do with the protests in Tbilisi.

Ukraine is under external control

During the last five years, Ukraine has been under external control.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring Kremlin narrative about Ukraine, which they claim is under external control from the US or EU. Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world, including the EU. You can find several disinformation cases on Ukraine being under foreign control here.
