US is allowed to meddle: Democracy promotion is ‘US policy’

Are you ready for this?  You may want to sit down ….

The incessant mindless chattering fools in the main stream media have literally lowered the IQ bar by at least 50pts with this one!!

“US is allowed to meddle: Democracy promotion is ‘US policy’”

 

Citing dozens of well-documented cases of direct US interference in foreign lands is just Russian whataboutism and also very unfair, because democracy promotion is a “stated US policy,” according to the sharp sticks at MSNBC….New York Times journalist Jim Rutenberg conceded that “there is some truth to the fact that the United States has engaged in election meddling over its history,” but then quickly came to his senses, clarifying that American meddling is usually nothing more than altruistic attempts to help democratic movements defeat evil foreign despots.

The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald, an outspoken critic of US media echo chambers, took to the twitterverse to air his own grievances about the MSNBC segment. “Oh my god. This is an actual, full discussion on MSNBC about how it’s totally different when the US interferes in elections and other countries’ politics because we only do it to help bolster democracy and fight despots. Did these people ever move beyond 4th grade US history? Nope,” Greenwald tweeted.

 

Let us put this into perspective, shall we?
