Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice declared on May 31, 2020 that the Russian government could be funding violent protests all over the country in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police.
As the Daily Caller noted, however, these claims were made “without evidence.”
“I would bet based on my experience, I’m not reading the intelligence these days but based on my experience,” Rice asserted, “this is right out of the Russian playbook as well.”
“I would not be surprised to learn that they have fomented some of these extremists on both sides using social media,” Rice said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they are funding it in some way, shape or form.”
Rice responded to President Donald Trump’s announcement regarding his plan to designate Antifa a domestic terror organization. Antifa is a radical left-wing group that is exploiting the protests to unleash chaos across the country.
Floyd’s death has spurred violent protests and looting throughout the country. According to video footage, Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for about 10 minutes before his death. Chauvin was arrested May 29, 2020 and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
Looting and rioting have kicked off across the nation in the wake of Floyd’s tragic death. At least three people were killed during protests in Oakland, Indianapolis and Detroit.
Rice also floated the baseless theory that white supremacists and right-wing groups are responsible for some of the social unrest.
“To designate antifa a terrorist organization, fine, but let’s also focus on the right-wing terrorists supremacists he called in the past very fine people. We have a problem here, Wolf,” she said.
That idea started gaining traction on May 30, when government officials in Minnesota claimed that right-wing groups were behind most of the violence in Minneapolis.
“We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey stated on May 30.
Blitzer did not even bother to push back on Rice’s theories and instead agreed with the dubious premise that Russia was behind the riots.
“You’re absolutely right on the foreign interference,” said Blitzer, “because we know for decades the Russians, when it was the Soviet Union, the communists, they’ve oftentimes tried to embarrass the United States by promoting the racial divide in our country.”
“But what you’re suggesting, ambassador, is that they’re still trying to do that? Is that what you’re saying?”
“Well, we see it all the time,” Rice remarked.
“We’ve seen it for years, and, frankly, every day on social media, where they take any divisive painful issue whether it’s immigration, whether it’s gay rights, whether it’s gun violence, and always racism, and they play on both sides.”
The Russia obsession is a paranoid fixation of the modern-day Deep State.
The establishment is trying to spin this unrest as much as possible to suit their agenda.
From the defense industry to seasoned multiculturalists, there is a strong incentive to deflect from the country’s growing social dysfunction and scapegoat a foreign entity.
Unless Rice can provide overwhelming evidence for these claims, we should completely dismiss them.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
