Disinfo: The United States and the entire West are sinking into tyranny and degeneration

Summary

Millions of people were exterminated in the 20th century by tyrannical regimes that were unconstrained by moral and religious scruples. This tendency has continued in the 21st century: Washington’s drive for hegemony over US citizens and the rest of the world is based entirely on the exercise of force and is resurrecting unaccountable power. As we enter into 2021, Western civilisation, the product of thousands of years of effort, is in decline. Degeneracy is everywhere.

The United States and the entire West are sinking into tyranny and degeneration.

Disproof

This article combines two recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives. The first narrative seeks to discredit the United States and other Western liberal democracies by claiming that liberal societies are totalitarian systems ruled by “globalist elites” and “shadow governments”, and even that liberal democracies, like 20th century totalitarian dictatorships, practice mass terror and repression against the population.

The article is also consistent with another broad pro-Kremlin narrative portraying the West as a decadent and immoral society.

Although US and other Western democracies today face multiple and serious domestic and foreign threats, it is not true that liberal democracies are obsolete, have collapsed or are being replaced with dictatorships. Reports of the death of liberal democracy have been greatly exaggerated. Moreover, the article’s attempt to equate the West’s liberal societies to totalitarian regimes based on terror and repression of dissent, such as Nazism and Communism, is an obvious falsification of reality.

The article also provides no evidence to support its sweeping claim that Western civilisation is “sinking into degeneration”. In reality, the central values and achievements of the modern West, liberal democracy, the rule of law, human rights, equality before the law, freedom of conscience and expression, rationalism, self-criticism, the disinterested search for truth, the separation of church and state, are still very much alive and continue to be a source of inspiration for people around the world.

Read similar cases claiming that contemporary liberalism is becoming totalitarian and views non-liberals as enemies to be killed and destroyed and that Western societies are decadent, worship money and are devoted to the obsessive search for pleasure.

The rejection of the Russian vaccine is a planned destruction of the Ukrainian people

Consent to any surrogate: Ukraine decided on a Chinese vaccine that has not proven its effectiveness. The rejection of the Russian vaccine is nothing more than planned destruction of the Ukrainian people.

Disproof

Disinformation that exploits the coronavirus pandemic to push a recurring narrative about Ukrainian statehood and a Russophobic narrative towards the possible Sputnik V vaccine.

Ukraine does not prohibit the use of the potential “Sputnik V” vaccine just because it is Russian.

Democrats and globalist Republicans stole Donald Trump’s victory in US presidential elections 2020

Stealing the elections that President Donald Trump actually won with a huge electoral advantage required such an enormous effort from the Democrats and the globalist Republicans operating with them at the same time, that almost all the masks were thrown off. The moment of truth has come. It became clear to everyone what was going on, that there was practically no democracy and real freedom in the United States, and Americans now have not the slightest moral right to teach anyone about this.

Disproof

Disinformation about the US in the context of the US presidential election. In its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was:

"competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

There were extensive investigations about possible fraud, which turned out to be unfounded. This unprecedented scrutiny led to the conclusion that the November 3rd elections were the most secure elections in the history of the United States.

You can see other examples of this disinformation narrative, such as Dominion deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide, Voting systems were designed to be hacked and were used by Biden to win the election, Massive fraud in the US 2020 Presidential elections.

Soon it will no longer be possible to celebrate a Christian Christmas in the United States

Christianity is gradually being marginalised in the United States. Each year it becomes more difficult to find a Christmas card that says “Merry Christmas” instead of “Seasons Greetings”.

In some churches Christianity is being transmuted into Christian Zionism and the worship of Israel. Others fly LGBTQ and BLM flags.

Soon the time will come when it will no longer be possible to celebrate a Christian Christmas, because a Christian Christmas will be considered “not inclusive” in a diverse society and therefore “politically incorrect,” if not a hate crime.

Disproof

The article’s claims are consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western élites and governments deliberately threatening and undermining traditional Christian values, as well as seeking to end the celebration of Christmas. The article also repeats a narrative spread by some pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that “Zionists”, LGBTQ groups or the Black Lives Matter movement are undermining authentic Christianity in the US.

No evidence is provided to support the article’s claim that in the not-too-distant future it will no longer be possible to celebrate an authentic Christmas in the United States.
