Disinfo: The US democratic party is organizing a civil war

Summary

It can be said that the White Civil War, which was organised by the Democratic Party on the eve of the US presidential elections, is subject to strict control, and the participation of the children of the wealthy only confirms this. However, in a country of forty million unemployed and half a billion firearms at hand, the manageable chaos could lead to a massive disaster at the national level.

Disproof

This a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the racial justice protests in the US being orchestrated and strictly managed. It is a conspiracy theory to claim that the protests are "directed" by the US Democratic Party.

The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on the 25th of May, 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US.

Despite high polarisation in the US, the unrest after the death of African American citizen George Floyd at the hands of a police officer is not a civil war. Though the situation was very tense for some days and protests spread to all 50 states of the country, military top officials and police officers worked effectively to de-escalate the situation, and demonstrations became largely peaceful after the first days.

5G systems increase cancer incidence

Magnetic fields cause cancer. The result of the deployment of the 5G system will be a further increase in cancer incidence.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theory about 5G technology.

In May 2019, the New York Times reported that the Russian state-funded network RT America was airing unsubstantiated reports linking 5G exposure to brain cancer, infertility and autism. However, studies examining a link between cell phone usage and increased cancer risk are inconclusive and full of caveats.

Civil war is possible in the USA, Biden is already talking about a coup

In the US, signs of civil war are already visible. US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is already openly declaring a military coup, threatening Donald Trump. 

Disproof

There is no civil war in the USA. The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on 25 May 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US. Despite high polarisation in the US, the unrest is not a civil war. Though the situation was very tense for some days and protests spread to all 50 states of the country, military top officials and police officers worked effectively to de-escalate the situation, and demonstrations became largely peaceful after the first days.

Furthermore, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has never said that he is preparing for a “military coup against Trump”. During an interview with CNN, the journalist asked Biden what would happen if the current US President Donald Trump loses the presidential election but refuses to resign. Biden said he believes that if Trump lost the election and refused to leave, military leaders would escort him from office.

5G technology is harmful to human health

5G technology is harmful for human health. There is a connection between 5G and COVID-19, and this is proven scientifically.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theory on coronavirus and 5G. There is no scientific evidence about any kind of link between 5G and the coronavirus.

In May 2019, the New York Times reported that the Russian state-funded network RT America was airing unsubstantiated reports linking 5G exposure to brain cancer, infertility and autism. However, studies examining a link between cell phone usage and increased cancer risk are inconclusive and full of caveats.
