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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
