The idea that the American people don’t even have a right to know what Russia is saying is very extreme, even by current regime standards.
This narrative that the US government is pushing, with the mass censorship combined with the celebration of the “values of democracy,” has become completely unsustainable.
Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has lashed out at journalist Tucker Carlson for going to Russia to interview President Vladimir Putin. She warned that there is a “fifth column” in the US supposedly doing Moscow’s bidding.
Carlson, a former Fox News host, is known for his contrarian position on the US standoff with Russia and the Ukraine conflict. He was the first American journalist to be granted an interview with Putin since the hostilities flared up in February 2022.
”He’s what’s called a useful idiot,” Clinton told MSNBC host Alex Wagner in an interview broadcast on Wednesday, referring to Carlson. She claimed that Russian media is making fun of him and comparing him to a puppy dog.
(The Russian media isn’t doing that.)
”I would not be surprised if he emerges with a contract with a Russian outlet because he is a useful idiot. He says things that are not true. He parrots Vladimir Putin’s pack of lies about Ukraine,” she continued.
Clinton called Carlson’s visit a sign of mistrust that some people in the US have regarding Washington’s positions, which she called “the truth.”
“Why are certain Republicans throwing their lot in? Why are other Americans basically believing Putin? Why did [Donald] Trump believe Putin more than our 11 intelligence agencies?” she wondered.
But it’s already admitted that the intelligence agencies were lying?
Why should people be expected to believe lies?
Clinton is the absolute face of the US government. That’s really all you need to know about what is going on here.
