Vladimir Putin Plans to Press Joe Biden on Human Rights Violations Against Trump Supporters
Russian President Vladimir Putin is intending to press U.S. President Joe Biden on human rights violations that are being perpetrated against Trump supporters who attended the mostly-peaceful protest at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has pointed out in recent weeks how U.S. authorities are violating human rights of their dissidents, which is a criticism frequently leveled against the Kremlin by Washington D.C. elites.
“We are ready to talk, we have no taboo topics. We will discuss whatever we think is necessary. We will be ready to answer the questions that the American side will raise. This also applies to human rights,” Lavrov said during a press conference that took place on Monday in Moscow.
“For example, we are following with interest the persecution of those persons who are accused of the riots on January 6 this year,” Lavrov continued, adding that “a lot of really interesting things are happening from the point of view of the rights of the opposition and protecting those rights” in the U.S.
Big League Politics has reported on how certain Jan. 6 Trump protesters are being treated like enemy combatants by jackboots who have been gaslighted by media propaganda depicting the patriots as terrorists and white supremacists:
“The prison guards tasked with taking care of pro-Trump patriots arrested after Jan. 6’s demonstration in and around the U.S. Capitol are instituting a racist terror regime on the patriots, their lawyers claim.
Trump supporters have been treated like murderers, rapists and thugs by a culture openly discriminatory against them for their pro-American beliefs. This is what real institutional discrimination looks like.
“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” said Ronald Sandlin, one of the defendants being charged for allegedly participating in the Capitol riot. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable.”
Sandlin claimed he was being subjected to “mental torture” and another defendant, Ryan Samsel “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.” He told a horrific story of how 60-year-old Richard Barnett was targeted with racist attacks by black prison guards.
According to Sandlin, Barnett was targeted by black prison guards who said to him: “I hate all white people and your honky religion.” This savage response is likely due to a relentless fake news media campaign painting the pro-Trump patriots as “white supremacists” and “neo-Nazis” without evidence.
“There is a pattern of abuse and of targeting of the defendants who are being held pursuant to what happened on Jan. 6,” said attorney Joseph McBride of New York, who is defending Barnett in the court of law. “It is targeted. It is ruthless. It is nonstop.”‘
Russia is taking a stand for Trump supporters at a time when most Republican politicians are either silent or cheering on Democrat oppression against them. Even if it’s for mere geopolitical points on the world stage, the fact that Putin , of all people, can claim more concern for dissidents than the current leadership of the United States is a remarkable sign of the times.
