Disinfo: The “systemic racism” paradigm is deadly for America’s white people, which are disenfranchised and oppressed

Summary

The paradigm of “systemic racism”, which is dominant in American society, is deadly for whites and for their civilisation. The white race is the truly disenfranchised and oppressed race in the US.

White males are demonised in American society. White males in the US have become the monstrous Other in their own nation.

Disproof

Disinformation presented with no evidence. The article claims, without any evidence, that the “systemic racism” paradigm – one of the key concepts undepinning tbe racial justice protests in the US - “is deadly for whites and for their civilisation” and that white males in the US are demonised and oppressed. These claims are consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the racial justice protests in the US and about the alleged victimisation of whites in American society.

It is not true that the “systemic racism” concept is an existential threat to white people, as the article suggests. The “systemic racism” concept has been widely debated in the US, and refers to “a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity”. The concept advocates the need for social reform to reduce and eliminate racial injustice in America, not for violence and oppression against white people.

Furthermore, the article’s claims that in the US whites are “disenfranchised and oppressed” and that white males are “demonised” are obviously baseless.

Read a similar case claiming that in the West white male heterosexuals cannot defend themselves against discrimination and are increasingly treated as criminals by courts.

Russia never intervened in US elections in 2016

Russian hackers did not interfere in the US presidential elections in 2016 when Donald Trump was elected nor in 2020 when Joe Biden won over Donald Trump. Claims about an alleged “Russian interference” only aim to destroy bilateral relations between Russia and the United States.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation denying Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Available evidence suggests that Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential poll - which was specifically aimed at damaging Clinton's campaign and aid her opponent - did affect the vote, particularly in three critical swing states where Trump's victory margins were the thinnest. In the US, Russian-linked posts reached 126 million Facebook users, whilst 29 million saw the content "directly".

Navalny affair is an intelligence war

The case of the alleged poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny is nothing more than an intelligence war. The fact that the Russian security services were following him does not mean that they also poisoned him.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative surrounding the poisoning of prominent Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny.

Navalny fell ill during a flight from Siberia to Moscow on the 20th of August. Initially hospitalised in Omsk, at the request of his family he was transferred to Charité hospital in Berlin, where clinical findings indicated that he was poisoned with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors. Subsequent toxicological tests provided unequivocal evidence of a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group in his blood samples.

US is creating biological weapons in Ukraine

The US destroys the scientific and technical potential of Ukraine and creates selective biological weapons.

The Americans have been working on a database of pathogen strains that they can use as biological weapons against “a particular race, genotype, territory of birth or residence.” Specifically, the newly emerged combat viruses should infect only the Eastern Slavs: Ukrainians, Russians, and Belarusians.

After the coup d’état, the curators received carte blanche to continue their parasitic activities in Ukraine.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theory alleging that the United States develops biological weapons and has secret biological laboratories around the world. The disinformation claim also capitalises on the oft-recurring conspiracy theories about laboratories in Ukraine and the coup in Ukraine in 2014.

There is no evidence that the US creates biological weapons in Ukraine or that these activities are directed against the 'Eastern Slavs'.
