Disinfo: Globalists want their candidate to win the 2020 US presidential elections at any cost

Summary

Globalism is collapsing. We can see this collapse in the United States, for example [in the context of racial justice protests]. Globalists view the Trump administration as an existential threat. Globalists want their candidate to win the 2020 US presidential elections and to preserve the global liberal order, at any cost, even at the cost of destroying the United States itself.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the article’s claims.

The article suggests that “globalists” are destroying the United States by orchestrating the anti-racist protests in the US in order to undermine the Trump administration and assure the victory of their candidate in the 2020 US presidential elections. It is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that depicts the racial justice protests in the US as a civil war, or as the disintegration or systemic collapse of American society.

This narrative is also consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation message claiming that the world is run by secret global elites .

Contemporary liberalism is now striving to cancel Western culture

The New York Times has recently stated the need to cancel Aristotle. This is an example of the explicitly totalitarian face of liberal ideology. The demonisation of Western culture and the calls to suppress Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger and other great Western thinkers and philosophers are clear symptoms of incipient totalitarianism. Nazism called for the cancellation of Jews, Soviet totalitarianism required the elimination of dissidents. Today, the global liberal order and its underlying liberal ideology strive to cancel almost everything, except for Black Lives Matter, Soros, LGBT, and some selected minorities. The modern West is seeking to destroy the principles and the sources of the pre-modern West.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the article’s claim that liberalism (or the “liberal world order”)  is seeking to suppress Western culture and to cancel great Western thinkers.

This message is consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that seeks to discredit liberalism claiming that liberal societies are (or are becoming)  totalitarian systems ruled by “globalist elites” and “shadow governments”. This narrative portrays the liberal societies of the West as ideological dictatorships that have imposed a dominant “liberal globalist” ideology and alleges that “the elites” and mainstream media in these societies censor and persecute anyone who expresses views that dissent from dominant “politically correct” liberal-globalist thinking.

No more police in Seattle because of BLM

In Seattle, which until recently was one of the best cities in the United States, and where vandals operated, there will be no police force anymore, as it was decided to disband it.

“Black Lives Matter” and liberal extremists who sympathise with this movement, are demanding an end to the funding of the police or for it to be abolished.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that depicts the racial justice protests in the US as the disintegration of the country.

The article states that the anti-racist protests in the US are provoking a collapse of public order in Seattle. This claim does not reflect reality.

Ukrainian ship packed with explosives is the cause of the Beirut explosion

The massive explosion in Beirut was caused by secretly stored explosive cargo on a Ukrainian ship called Mero Star.

Disproof

There is no evidence to suggest that Ukrainian ships were the reason of the Beirut port explosion on August 4.

At the time of the tragedy, two Ukrainian ships were in the port near the epicentre of the explosion - RAUF and Mero Star. Although both ships were near the explosion and both of them are believed to be destroyed, none of them were carrying explosive material, as confirmed by TankerTrackers.com. The two ships were most likely carrying grain.
