Poll: The U.S. is Seen as a Greater Threat to Democracy on a Global Scale Than Russia or China
A poll of nations throughout the world has shown that the U.S. is seen as a greater threat to democracy than nations such as China or Russia.
The poll commissioned by the Alliance of Democracies Foundation featured responses from 50,000 people in 53 different countries to determine the results. A whopping 44 percent of respondents said they feared the U.S. as a threat to democracy, as opposed to 38 percent of respondents fearing the Chinese and 28 percent of respondents fearing the Russian impact on democracy.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who chairs the Alliance of Democracies Foundation, is interpreting the results of the poll as showing a need for more globalism.
“This poll shows that democracy is still alive in people’s hearts and minds. We now need to come out of the Covid-19 pandemic by delivering more democracy and freedom to people who want to see their countries become more democratic,” he said.
“The positive support for an Alliance of Democracies, whether the UK’s D10 initiative or President Biden’s Summit for Democracy, shows that people want more cooperation to push back against the autocrats. Leaders should take note of these perceptions and act upon them,” Rasmussen added.
In all actuality, the findings demonstrate that the U.S. is too involved in the affairs of the world, and their interventionist foreign policy is majorly backfiring.
Big League Politics reported on how President Trump and his allies in the Republican Party fought back against the endless wars that have caused America to lose so much respect and prestige abroad:
“President Donald Trump attacked Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Thursday, following up the swift rebuking issued to her by various members of the House Freedom Caucus publicly and privately…
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has been on the war path against Cheney because of her support for coronavirus doom prophet Dr. Anthony Fauci, her support of the war in Afghanistan, and her endorsement of the primary challenger of Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)…
“Liz Cheney should be better, and our conference would be better if she were no longer the chair of it,” Gaetz said on his “Hot Takes With Matt Gaetz” podcast, adding that his colleague Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) “made the case strongly that Liz Cheney is hurting President Trump.”
Donald Trump Jr. also piled on Cheney while she was getting hammered by congressional “America First” leaders…
The House Freedom Caucus has smoked Cheney out, making it considerably more difficult for her to deceive GOP voters as she attempts to repackage globalism and neoconservatism to the MAGA faithful.”
With Biden taking the reins over foreign policy, America is likely to engender more blowback from foreign countries as the U.S. continues to engage in military adventurism throughout the globe.
