WATCH: Susan Rice Says She ‘Wouldn’t Be Surprised’ If Russia Was Behind George Floyd Protests Turning Violent

Written by K. Walker on June 1, 2020

This is the same woman who went on all of the Sunday shows and said that the Benghazi attack was because of a YouTube video.

It’s fascinating to watch the Democrats twist themselves into pretzels to blame Russia for literally everything now.

According to Democrats, there is no worse state government in the world than Russia. Think about it–Iran just needed to be bribed to stop their terrorism, China, “c’mon man–they’re not bad folks, folks!” and CNN, (as well as other prominent leftists,) apparently had a crush on Kim Jong Un’s sister. As one idiot on Twitter wrote, “North Korea is going to have a Woman leader before the United States of America! Let that sink in!”

Iran was using the Quds Force to foment division in the Middle East, China unleashed a virus onto the world, lied about it, and is currently exploiting the mess that they’ve created to push their ideological goals and suppress rights in Hong Kong, and North Korea is as unpredictable as ever–but Russia is the real threat right now.

Would it be insensitive to say, “The 1980s are calling and is asking for their foreign policy back”?

I’m old enough to remember when Hillary was the Secretary of State and had that awful “Russian Reset Button” moment to usher in a new era working with Russia.

But then, Donald J. Trump descended the escalator and essentially said, “You know,  America can be great and it would be nice to have a better relationship with Russia.” Suddenly, a new pathogen emerged–Trump Derangement Syndrome infected huge swaths of the population starting with the chattering classes all the way down to CNN’s Don Lemon, The Dumbest Man On Television™.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration, knowing that Putin was a bad actor tossing wrenches to sow discord in a politically-divided America, leveraged “Russian meddling” during an election year, amplified it, called it “collusion” and spied on the Trump campaign managing to take down General Michael Flynn in the process. Susan Rice’s bizarre Inauguration Day email to herself–as a giant CYA move–shows just how corrupt the Obama administration was.

Now she’s saying that the peaceful protests about George Floyd’s senseless and tragic death that have been hijacked by anti-Trump leftwing groups to push their own agenda of dismantling society is “right out of the Russian playbook.” She was dismissive of President Trump’s decision to label Antifa a terrorist organization. “To designate Antifa a terrorist organization, fine, but let’s also focus on the right-wing terrorist organizations–the white supremacists that he’s called, in the past, very fine people,” said Rice. The “Fine People Hoax” that has been pushed by the media since August 2017 has been debunked repeatedly.

Former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice bizarrely suggested in a televised interview Sunday that the Russians could be behind the violent nationwide demonstrations following the in-custody death of George Floyd, although she offered no evidence for the incendiary claim.

Rice’s made the claim after top Democrats insisted for years that the White House had conspired with Russia, although Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence to support any conspiracy with Russia by any U.S. actor to influence the 2016 election. Her remarks also came amid efforts by Democrats to pin the blame on outside white supremacist agitators, even though data suggests the vast majority of arrested protesters in recent days are local.

Clearly, Rice needs to sit the hell down.

She doesn’t get one bit of pushback from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on this, instead, he agrees with her bizarre comment.

RICE: We have peaceful protesters focused on the very real pain and disparities that we’re all wrestling with that have to be addressed, and then we have extremists who’ve come to try to hijack those protests and turn them into something very different. And they’re probably also–I would bet based on my experience, I’m not reading the intelligence today…these days–but based on my experience this is right out of the Russian playbook as well. But we can’t allow the extremists, the foreign actors, to distract from the real problems we have in this country that are long-standing, centuries-old, and need to be addressed responsibly by new leadership.

BLITZER: You’re absolutely right about the foreign interference ’cause we know for decades that the Russians–when it was the Soviet Union, the Communists–they’ve often, often 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?

RICE: We see it all the time, 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. Their aim is not simply to embarrass the United States, Wolf, their aim is to divide us; to cause us to come into combat with each other, to disintegrate from within. And I would not be surprised to learn that they have fomented some of these extremists on both sides using social media. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they are funding it in some way, shape, or form.

 

Adding to that, Susan Rice thinks it’s Russia.

Surely it couldn’t be Antifa who have been emboldened since they’ve had Democrat politicians refuse to denounce them (perhaps it’s because their kids support them) and the sexy little profiles on CNN could it?

Nah, that can’t be it.
