Disinfo: De-Americanisation is on, the idea of Black Khalifate is coming

Summary

A statue of Columbus was toppled in the US. The toppling of monuments means de-Americanisation which will be followed by ideological oblivion. A cult of anarchy promoted by groups of drug addicts and subculture of sexual minorities replaces the old white colonial concept.

We are seeing how the black population of North America is developing a new religion with George Floyd as Jesus’s reincarnation. It is proclaimed that black people are divinely anointed. Soon black people will dispute their right to universal sanctity with the Ukrainians. I wish they could confront each other. It will be not surprising to learn about an idea of a new global Negro Khalifate. This will be so if a “wrong” candidate wins the US presidential election. If he could withdraw his candidature, everything would instantly calm down.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that the protests in the US caused by the death of George Floyd are in the interests of some in the US. Without explicitly naming the 'wrong' candidate, the publication seemingly hints at Donald Trump and therefore alleges the US Democrats' connection with the protests. The article also contains groundless, preposterous generalisations concerning the intentions and active societal actors behind the protests.

Pro-Kremlin media have been exploiting the US crisis to push various disinformation narratives, such as the riots being staged by the Democratic Party or to portray it as the Deep State’s attempt to create an “American Maidan". Protests in the US against police brutality and institutional racism broke out in different states sparked by the death of George Floyd.

US establishment using colour revolution tactics in anti-racist protests

The American establishment, which has long used a particular set of tactics to trigger colour revolutions and regime change operations abroad, is now applying the same methods in the US racial protests.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the racial justice protests in the US and colour revolutions.

The claim is made without evidence, and fits squarely with the Kremlin's paranoid view that no mass protest or civil uprising can take place without manipulation by cynical actors behind the scenes (most often the US). See here for our analysis of this narrative, with examples.

Poland responsible for outbreak of WWII

Poland may not be the co-author of the aggression which broke in 1939, but it played an important supporting role in unleashing it. Had it not been for for Poland’s actions in the run-up to the Second World War, particularly after the Munich conference, the war may well have been avoided.

Disproof

The claim fits in with the Kremlin's pseudohistorical messaging on the causes of the Second World War, particuarly on the responsibility which Poland supposedly bears for unleashing the conflict.

The outbreak of the war, according to overwhelming academic consensus, is directly traceable to the Nazi-Soviet pact of August 1939. The agreement contained a secret protocol which entitled Nazi Germany and the USSR to their respective spheres of influence in Europe. Within weeks of concluding the pact, the Third Reich and the Soviet Union implemented its secret provisions by invading Poland.

US agents attempt to overthrow Lukashenka along the Ukrainian scenario

Over the past years, American special bodies have introduced their agents in the Belarusian governing institutions and use them to overthrow Alyaksandr Lukashenka along the Ukrainian scenario and capture the state power. US agents attempt to manipulate Lukashenka to bring discord in his relations with Russia. The Belarusian authorities should talk less about alleged covert Russian actions and rather expose and arrest US agents.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy consistent with a recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narrative about the West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations through various actions, this time with the use of secret agents among high-ranking officials. No proof whatsoever is given to support this claim.

The article implicitly claims that the West overthrew former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich, which supports another propaganda narrative about the Western-staged coup d'état in Ukraine. In fact, the spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction from several segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013, after pressure from Russia.
