GQ journal doesn’t say America can be worse than Russia on human rights

Must read

This week’s Liberal Media Shout features an award-winning Russian-born journalist who suggests that President Biden has no authority to challenge Russian President Vladimir Putin on human rights.

Julia Ioffe, who appears on MSNBC, said the United States fails the moral superiority test due to “voter suppression” and police “constantly” killing black people.

Ioffe, who writes for GQ and elsewhere, said that “it is much more difficult to talk to Vladimir Putin about human rights when we have not yet cleaned up our mess at home.” And he added, “the Russians are seeing exactly what we are seeing. The voter suppression laws, the slide into minority rule, the undermining of our own democracy. “

Ioffe on Morning Joe today:

“I wanted to quickly get back to the point of ‘whataboutism’. Of course, it’s a way of not answering the question, but it works for many people because they always start with a hint of truth, right? Interestingly, yes, the Soviet Union spoke constantly about the violation of the civil rights of African Americans in America in the 1950s and 1960s and even since the 1930s. And one of the reasons the Rights Act was passed Civilians and that the American president supported it was to take this letter from the Soviets.

“And President Biden, politically speaking, is not going to this meeting with a big hand of cards, either. The Russians are seeing exactly what we are seeing. The voter suppression laws, the slide into minority rule, the undermining of our own democracy. So it’s much more difficult to talk to them, you know, we are seeing black men and women constantly being killed by the police in this country. So it is much more difficult to talk to Vladimir Putin about human rights when we have not yet cleaned up our mess at home. “

Media Research Center Vice President Brent Baker explains our weekly selection: “Ioffe not only went back to ‘what’s up’, but he went back to the moral equivalence of the left between the United States and the Soviet Union of the Cold War years, when too many journalists were most upset about it. what President Reagan said about the Soviet Union than human rights violations committed by the Soviets. He is now justifying Putin’s stance on the US by addressing some deficiencies of the US and the democratic debate within our nation about how to improve those deficiencies, with a Russian dictator having no interest in the civil rights of the US. no one while repressing dissent, using unjustified imprisonment. and murder as his tools. “

Rating: FOUR out of FIVE screams.
