“These events led to a serious rift in American society. The country is split. We don’t trust each other. We no longer have a common home and dreams”, – said the newspaper VIEW one of the organisers of the torchlight procession in Charlottesville Richard Spencer. He commented on changes in the internal life of the United States, which began after those attempts.
The ideologist of the American “alternative right”, one of the organisers of the torchlight procession in Charlotteville (VA) Richard Spencer for the first time since those tragic events, decided to speak to the press, giving an interview to the newspaper VIEW.
Describing events in Virginia, the American press focuses on the tragic episode when one of the defenders of the monument to General Lee on the car crashed into a crowd of opponents of the monument, resulting in 19 people were injured and one young woman died. However, this attack was preceded by a mass brawl that broke out near the monument. To figure out who attacked first, it is hardly possible, as the police made it possible to converge the two demonstrations, and the battle was already inevitable. This circumstance allowed then Trump to say that the violence both sides are to blame.
Last week Newsweek attempted to find in the background of the events arm of the Kremlin, wrote that Spencer makes no secret of his attachment to the policy of Vladimir Putin, describing Russia as “the only white force in the world.” In may, the first time participating in the protests in Charlottesville, Spencer chanted: “Russia is our friend!”
This week the campaign against Spencer continued Wednesday TV channel CNN again explained the unrest to the machinations of Moscow. Comments about this TV channel was declared by the Dean of the law faculty of Yale University Asha Rangappa, who previously worked as an FBI agent specializing in counterintelligence.
“Today, there is no evidence that Russia has directly supported right-wing organizations in the United States, – quotes the portal Inosmi.ru. But if you look at this relationship through the prism of presidential reactions to events in Charlottesville, we can say that the Russian intelligence service has created a new opportunity for the use of such hate groups for the implementation of active measures in the United States.”
Still a couple of “clues” Rangappa found. She recalls that Richard Spencer married a “Russian propagandist” Nina Kupriyanova, who in his article “echoed Kremlin rhetoric,” and that the Spencer “promoting their extremist views” in the Russian media. By the way, this is true – Spencer has appeared several times in the Russian press, for example, six months ago gave an interview to our newspaper. Based on these facts, the ex-FBI agent now predicts Moscow’s attempts to “destabilize” the United States from within. Obviously, she is sure that Americans in droves are reading Newspapers in the Russian language.
VIEW: Mr. Spencer, you supported trump during his election campaign. How do you assess his reaction to events in Charlottesville? He condemned racism, late, but condemned the far right and however opposed the left, which was blamed for starting the riots.
Richard Spencer: His reaction was both good and bad. He could be more firm in condemning the authorities of Charlottesville. But Donald trump was one of the few, maybe the only politician who showed in this case, honesty. What happened in Charlottesville, was not the Nazi assault on innocent demonstrators. Our demonstration was attacked by uncontrolled leftist assholes. It was the action of those who go against human nature. Trump said that the problem is in the actions of both sides. So you need to give credit to his honesty.
OPINION: do you think that will behavior trump after he sacked his adviser Stephen Bannon? Because’bannon Washington press is also called a right-wing ideologue, and almost your soul mate.
R. S.: I don’t know very well what Bannon speaks. But the fact is different: as soon as’bannon left the White house, trump announced a big increase in American troops in Afghanistan. This makes me assume that Bannon has a positive impact on the White house, he wanted to stop the senseless war, which the United States are still far away. I am concerned that the United States policy towards Russia and the Middle East could also deteriorate after the departure of’bannon.
OPINION: TO what extent are you satisfied with the policy of trump? Did he, for example, every effort to fulfill their campaign promises?
R. S.: I am not satisfied with the actions of trump. But in any case we do not even expect that he will dare to go that far. He began to apply laws on illegal immigration. This is a positive thing. Sad, of course, trump is not changed to the extent that we would like. But again, I don’t think he’s a bad President, and I wish him success.
OPINION: Virginia Governor Terence McAuliffe said that Donald trump was flirting with your supporters during his election campaign, so he’s to blame the victims. What do you think about this?
R. S.: No, trump, of course, in no way not responsible for this violence.
OPINION: the Governor McAuliffe said your supporters: “Shame on you. You pretend to be patriots, but you who else but the patriots. The diversity of our society, which is created by immigrants, is what makes us special. And we will not allow anyone to go and ruin it.” How would you comment these words?
R. S.: the Governor, of course, complete, complete idiot. I am very glad that this asshole is attacking me. I would be very concerned if it was not. He and the mayor of Charlottesville Mike Sayner – truly horrible people who destroyed the traditional culture of the United States. They hate me because of my patriotism. But I don’t care. I stand for, what we stand for identity of white people of the United States, historical identity. I am in favour of the white brotherhood around the world, which, of course, includes Russian. And I want people like McAuliffe and Sayner, hated me.
OPINION: So why still in Charlottesville bloodshed? Who is to blame for the violence?
R. S.: the Cause of the chaos in Charlottesville is that the city authorities have failed in their responsibilities. Authorities are responsible – they instigated chaos and violence. The authorities had powers granted to them by the state Governor to declare a state of emergency. This means that they could put the city on a war footing and to avoid collisions. They could use all police officers, all their possibilities and power to enforce the order. They had enough power.
Instead, the government created chaos. They pushed equal numbers of demonstrations, including one in which I participated, on Park street in Charlottesville, where the Communist fanatics could unleash violence. The authorities are directly responsible for injuries and loss of life.
OPINION: What do you think about the death of the participant opposing the rally Heather Heyer? Arrested for her murder James Alex fields, Jr., said to have been a party to your action.
R. S.: I’m sorry, that carried away human life. This was a very unfortunate incident. I can’t say for sure exactly what happened. I’m sorry this young man got involved in reckless actions, caused chaos. Perhaps he is innocent of murder because his car was attacked. It hit another car, and eventually it led to the death of a person. There is a theory that it was the result of the actions of the militia (militia or “police” Spencer calls his supporters – approx. OPINION). But I’m not sure.
OPINION: do you Think that the events in Charlottesville was in some ways a continuation of ending more than 150 years ago the Civil war?
R. S.: Yes, these events led to a serious rift in American society. The country is split. We don’t trust each other. We no longer have a common home and dreams. Yes, I believe that once the Civil war began – just in a different form.
