Russia calls out Biden administration for violating human rights of Trump supporters
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokewowman Maria Zakharova recently railed against Biden administration hypocrisy of criticizing the Russian Federation’s handling of Kremlin antagonist Alexei Navalny, while persecuting and violating the human rights of Trump supporters.
Zakharova described an “ongoing persecution campaign” taking place “against anybody at all who does not agree with the results of the latest presidential election.” She also mentioned Biden minions calling American patriots ‘domestic terrorists’.
“The FBI has reportedly opened more than 400 criminal cases and applied for more than 500 search warrants and subpoenas for suspects; it has also brought charges against and detained around 200 people. Only several dozen defendants have been released on bail or placed under house arrest. The others are being subjected to harsh pressure, with members of their family and social circle being coerced into giving a ‘convenient’ testimony. Moreover, people who have not even been officially charged are losing their jobs; they are being banned from social media and publicly ostracised.”
“In fact, the majority of those people were ordinary citizens concerned about the situation in their own country,” she said. “These were 74 million voters who voted for their president and defendedtheir views.”
Zakharova then described how Trump supporters will not disappear as the U.S. Left fervently wishes.
“Their protest will not just go away. You cannot just sweep discontent under the rug. Even the rhetoric that the United States allows itself to use with respect to Russia will not help distract public attention from the country’s own problems. They will have to be dealt with. US citizens deserve to be treated according to the law and in line with Washington’s international obligations.”Accordingly, she then called on the United States to respect the “basic human rights” of Trump supporters.
There is more.
There is certainly some irony in this piece. But there is also a hint of reality about the cancel culture in the US as used by some of the same people who pushed the Russian collusion hoax.
