8:01 am
a kind of laziness of the intellectual process where they say well we're going to copy and paste and they come and they tell us how wrong we are. but i welcome just going for company else the new morse code you're watching international now the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has warned that moscow is ready to break up with the view if it imposes new sanctions that harm key sectors of the country's economy because you don't off as more. or you will still wish to go to you are just saying that we're ready to do this if we see once again like we've seen numerous times before the brussels imposes sanctions that pose restore economy specifically to the most sensitive sicked is once again we don't want to distance ourselves from the international community but we need to be ready for this if you want peace prepare for war. well it is
8:02 am
a pretty straightforward message especially coming from a veteran diplomat which circle of rove certainly is but here the russian foreign minister he's rather showing his hand he's explaining what will happen if the e.u. decides to follow through with a plan to impose new sanctions and if these sanctions are crippling to any of the key sectors of russia's economy world this is what will happen but again moscow has already confirmed that it will not initiate the process and will only react to what the e.u. will do this frustration it stems from from his meeting with the use foreign policy chief joseph burrell even moscow. about a week ago sergei lavrov clarified moscow's and reiterated moscow's position that the if these swap at the swapping of the suspended sentence for a real one for lex in a valley it's an internal matter but at the same time joseph burrell called on russia to release the kremlin critic and world saying that this case is politically
8:03 am
motivated is politically charged and according to. the e.u. diplomats in including jos are borel they are being strong armed into a tough into an unreasonably tough position on russia and essentially they are stripped the ability and the opportunity to do their job of diplomacy and use those are your. sure key travel to us knowing the complicated situation many were against his visit and publicly declared that he shouldn't come to russia until we quote fix al behavior not only e.u. foreign policy chief burrell but also his. predisposes do not have the capacity to negotiate the whole you point of view was focused on the idea that we turned miss novell me into a political prisoner as were their russian state laws and they need to be respected as for human rights i reminded mr burrell that we've long shown readiness to hold a constructive dialogue based firstly on facts and secondly not on the unilateral basis for this little glitch and from the very get go joseph burrell was put in
8:04 am
a very tough conditions by his e.u. counterparts because there were critics who were saying that you shouldn't visit prussia at all but when he came back from that visit just all al broke loose they did the diplomats in the e.u. parliament they didn't mince any words moscow the busa the visit of high representative bordello to you merely 8 and offend the european union your ill executed visit you know only a shame to european citizens you also helps putin and harms dressin people mr burrell and the on the other hand made a fool of himself last week you must go wakeup call that finally prompted e.u. member states and yourself to to adopt a more realistic and principled russian foreign policy and to move toward sanctions finally among others inclusion of human rights under sanctions least and to suspension of north stream 2 which is contrary to european and it should security
8:05 am
police but this quiet quiet loud quiet of condemnation it was interrupted by and i wish member of the european parliament who pointed out that as she sees it the the only reason that election of only gets so much attention is because he was jailed in russia and that the e.u. is using him simply as a political pretext to slap more sanctions on moscow by most happy as anybody else to stand up for anybody's rights including no found nice but let's be honest the banks and he's officious and see immigrants racist and maybe for. percent of the supports and we wouldn't be discussing him oh if you've been arrested anywhere else other than in russia so sort of made the following point as well he said that russia is already independent of him militarily so russia does not rely on anybody or russia is in arms expects it's exporting arms and basically saying that russia
8:06 am
should do the same thing but with its economy. if anybody decides to impose more sanctions and cripple some crucial economic sphere of russia then you should just wave goodbye and say well if you're closing this door we won't we won't be standing there knocking you go to dan of there but we discuss the situation too with independent political analyst gilbert doctorow he thinks that tit for tat strategy could lead to enormous economic damage on both sides. if the with question here which go to judge of the 2 to gesticulate in james you russia's economic existence as they did as the rested cheney was access to the script to iran where i could see the drastic extremely high or for action in the economic sphere taken by russia where it was given more war or
8:07 am
more on syria actions that have long been distrust among the national watching the midwest and western your specific to all the destruction of orm energy security within the has been used to frustrate. the north korean to project has always given me the interview mind you can reinstate its word or it can concern was it was risky it was the russian structure of the capsule hope once shipped out here can cause more mystery to both sides but you can read this very closely and have to do it. now a member of the world health organization team that is just back from china has told r.t. that it probably wasn't bats that pass coronavirus to humans he said that even if the disease originated in bats it was likely transferred to humans of the random or
8:08 am
some scientists fragmented gulf has been probing the origins of the pandemic in the chinese city of where you have. we know from past epidemics for example sars covert and mares cause of that bats are the source of the epidemic moreover they contain genetic cells close to the ones that caused the pandemic but we also know that the transmission of the virus did not occur directly from the bat the previous time sars was transferred from a civet cat mers from a camel so there must be some other intermediate animal it is the most likely have part assists based on our knowledge as well the virus was 1st detected in the city in december of 2019 teams initial findings to be bunting planes that the disease originated in a laboratory however the u.s.
8:09 am
does think that beijing is hiding facts from the experts science needs to lead us out of this pandemic and in preventing the next one geo political battling has already made that path harder is to learn to trust in the global systems we set up after world war 2 and give them a chance china gave them very controlled and limited access and got a report that was inconclusive and supports narrative. limited cough again told us that he thought the beijing had been transparent. how successful was our mission i believe that we have fulfilled our program this was only the 1st part of our investigation and we didn't expect to determine the origin of the pandemic already w.h.o. team and chinese specialists work together as scientists it was something like a huge conference where we shared opinions and information analyzed scientific literature that already exists discussed hypotheses and assessed possibilities i
8:10 am
see no reason for the chinese side to hide anything they probably didn't do that because in the scientific world it is very difficult to conceal something information could be hidden from the public but it is more difficult if it's people who really understand the issue. there are 2 hypotheses about how the virus appeared the 1st is that the virus may have been induced the suspicions have already been refuted says so we're not even considering this the 2nd is that a natural virus came from the lab we were at the institute of uralla ji observing the work with viruses and concluded that everything meets safety standards and leakage could not have occurred this lab is far enough from the market if there was a leak we'd see signs of it therefore such a leak is practically impossible we looked at hypotheses in the probability
8:11 am
category it's likely that the virus came from space so it's impossible. now a disney star form that into so-called council culture after being sacked the social media posts that fail to tell you of pro-democrat anti trump line but it's us here and i reports many who demand it firing were actually caught sending similar provocative messages to. disney's finally realizing that life is no fairy tale it couldn't stick to down saloons and knights and call souls a pumpkin's know it hat take out political and its funds switching off i'm canceling my disney plus subscription right now they want to cancel us i will cancel them. i don't know many posts but if you find those qur'an the for her freedom of speech i promise i will cancel my disney plus subscription council
8:12 am
culture is going to far cancel disney plus if you were ever tricked into giving them money in the 1st place why is does he now face a backlash not a bunch of happy smiling kids saying i'm going to let it go oh well a film company it owns of crumbled under the pressure of woke laureus and fired to the corrado that's the star of the disney parks so the mountain noria. know this is no place for a child apparently because of her apartment unexceptable social media posts which include being skeptical of mustering thinking that trumps impeachment is well out a bit of a hoax refusing to put her pronouns in her twitter handle the most recently comparing the prosecution of republicans in today's america with out over food jews
8:13 am
in nazi germany which was one of the dockets pages in human history obviously while it was not a hit because i mean you want to go that route one calling people fascists and nazis but if you voted for trump you voted for the person who claims supported you voted for the person who nazis supported by the jews. and we are raised to say nothing. is happening here as the republican party has a personalized power like we haven't seen it's a cut deal it's a series or it's a furor and it's also entirely inappropriate to combat genocides to current political tensions right amazon we've seen it in bosnia we've seen it in rwanda where radio was telling people do you know who jews are telling the radio listen. errors that were cockroaches and you see them in these videos also did you know miss this memo about fonts healing and unity and something transported to towns i
8:14 am
don't think we need to treat here is about a terrorist the way we do actual terrorists i think we need to consider all all all i possibilities i'm not against sending these people to get mouth. democratically elected former presidents from speaking out the own impeachment trial hearings about how the free speech of the fost of man went out for those jobs to see approves of the constitution so processing anyway so young disney on the rocks the people who are up against council culture want to cancel disney for daring to cancel jena who believes that she got out of the michael peeps of being counseled by society it's all very cool mehta the probably should have stuck to fairy tales. watch not a select few that have the power so purge promising a radical rethink approach to diversity although not everybody is ready for the change will get opposing views from experts just off to the right.
8:15 am
8:16 am
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. welcome back here without international flight french intellectuals are stepping up their attacks on what they call american values they claim that fashionable leftist ideas imported from the u.s. have no place in france and that they say they pose a threat to french society although these warnings are new for the country but the president and other government officials are already raising face. certain social
8:17 am
science theories entirely imported from the united states with the problems which i respect and which exist but which is just added to. the reason battle to wage against an intellectual matrix from american universities. of some national thinkers blame the u.s. for france's mass protests against police brutality similar to america's black lives matter movement america's me to campaign on awareness about sexual abuse is also going to traction with french feminists charlotte n.c. explains the transatlantic headache. french intellectuals and politicians are said to be up in arms over the cancelled culture ideology seeping over from the united states and spoiling well the french way of life i think there's a kind of laziness of the intellectual process where they say well we're going to copy and paste and they come and they tell us how rude we are black lives mocked me
8:18 am
to our examples of movements that flew over the atlantic and spread their wings here now that's led to debates over race gender français crackdown on islam is still going on is asians and demands for the country to fess up to its colonial past they come and they tell us that we all racist. phobic about our universal values on nothing. and quite frankly i mean there's a combination of incredulity and. annoyance i wouldn't say anger because we don't think it's rather that europe has existed for a long time. i think we can live without american chris cruel theory for a few few years more and it seems the french should really had enough of council culture so when the director of the paris opera issues it diktats saying that he wanted to diversify staff and black face the editor in chief of one of france's
8:19 am
biggest daily papers and took issue making works of art disappear because the cancel culture which has been a national sport for america and aims to wipe off the map culture and creators symbolizing the domination of the white male and the oppression of minorities some say this problem it's much deeper it's a threat to its political identity is a threat to the republic and to french democracy and to the functioning of the state it's not a matter of cultural identity i do. i think that there is a big threat to civilized life and obviously freedom of speech and so on by these kinds of movements while imposing ideas on race inequality feels for many a little bit rich coming from the u.s. considering the state of race relations in america right now it doesn't look like their solutions work so well so i'm not sure we need them really but the other
8:20 am
thing is that there's this whole speech and discussion about how colonialist it is to impose a different culture on the unsuspecting populations and the french are saying well you are imposing something that may or may not work for your country but it's not working for france i mean after all isn't the whole point of freedom of speech also having some respect for the point of view of others what is objectionable in this room is the idea that instead of having a discussion or a debate or even an argument about it that there should be should somehow be consoled and so we are dealing sorry to say this it sounds rather rude but we are dealing with the difference between intelligence and stupidity it's just stupid to talk like that of course we can all disagree about napoleon or any other historical figure but that's what makes us a civilization that is what civilization is there's a claim that this fight back comes from
8:21 am
a small frightened republic that's in decline but isn't it just possible that perhaps france a country with a long proud tradition of intellectual debate the country where the unlighted movement was birthed is perhaps still ahead of the curve well at least compared to america and for now it appears that the clefts culture just isn't cutting the must it in france so let's even ski r.t. paris well the paris opera diversity scandal which we just heard about there erupted when black performers complained about almost entirely white casts and also the use of blackface in performances the organizations artistic director agrees. we're not here promoting a climate of censorship or dictatorial actions from the leadership the whole point of this initiative is we want to put on opera and bi-lo by 21st century artists for
8:22 am
21st century audiences the pledge to hire more people of color is part of a 66 page report by the theater and alexander nee you just heard from there was also quoted by the moore newspaper warning that some performances would disappear from the repertoire if deemed to be insensitive the plans have sparked condemnation from traditional commentators in the french media and also from the nationalist politician marine le pen we put the issue up for debate. this year is really political correctness gone mad because they actually do have 5 black ballet dancers in there so i really don't know what the people who are calling for change here are worried about we have some talented people here who are forced to leave france to express that the one where this is a huge problem and what alex underneath is saying now is he's take the he's taking the problem to the roof that's mean that in the recruitment he's changing the way of for a christmas cripple and it's
8:23 am
a very new thing in france because we know that this is a very elitist well what you should do in every case is pick the best person for the job the most talented the most skilled person for the roles the parasol they have the ballet school and they've changed their admissions procedure to let people in from ethnic minorities and black people to come in and as they come in through the system they're actually going up into the opera so this is already happening and hopefully the people that come through will be selected because they are talented and skilled we need of course the best then said to be in but before that we need to open the door the thing is to did the door close for the and the minority this is the right reality is to have the most the wanted people in this new joint so for example what he's doing he's a law black man so for example to have the dress who much would the court of that sit lotsa because a lot of young densa west pushed away just because they didn't fit to do to do
8:24 am
white tour we can say we need to adapt the density of the people are well off and i was wondering about that the whole debate here is that they're actually talking about reducing the repertoire and changing the kind of performances they put on because some people have chosen to be offended about things that they know there's been no problem with for decades or centuries region of the classic is the right this is origin but we have to say that france and england and u.k. and germany and do you. as today in 2021 it's not the same friends. or friends of the u.k. and the population in europe is different so i wouldn't agree at all i don't think that we need to change performances in the way that they've been written this is this is a conservative opera house conservative company it is there to put on classical performances they shouldn't be changed just because a few people this year decide they should be changed in a certain way what will happen in 20 years time 50 years time someone else might
8:25 am
come along and say oh well we need to change them again and again and again look they should stick to the classical way it should have been done the way that they've always been done that's what audiences want and that's what they should be sticking to. my president biden has reversed the emergency order of his predecessor donald trump to build the mexico border wall adding that no more taxpayer money will be spent on the project and whether you've ministration is now stuck between course to keep it in place or spend even more funds tearing it down out of mouth and expects. ah i promise we will build the wall was you may have heard dan a lot of times the promise some argue got donald trump elected the idea that got government to historic shutdown point in time shall call for i will shut down the government if i don't get my will none of us if you want to know something you've
8:26 am
said ok you want to put that do i said i'll take what the american taxpayers can relax now with biden in office no more money is being wasted it shall be the policy of my administration that no more american taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall and then i'm directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to that end but what about the $15000000000.00 already spent on this wall furthermore tearing it down will still require the tax money joe biden is talking about democrats always spend more money than they have because spending money is integral to building the power base they want to build build they don't care at all. the safety and solidity of the currency you are the budget public money is to them a tool for power the more they have to print and create to spend the further in debt they put us happier democrats seem to be anyway with the political climate the
8:27 am
way it is currently in the united states it seems that biden is really going to have no choice people are calling on him to tear it down and it's time for the biden administration to step up for border communities and commit to mitigating environmental damage and tearing down that wall so tear it down or leave it up as a monument to trump's racist policies as some democrats are calling for it looks like joe biden is bound in limbo when it comes to walls barriers and fences furthermore he also doesn't seem to know what to do about the big a razor wire fence around the u.s. capitol see. is it a critical doesn't it nuts because it is democrats a lot of friends is and walls nancy pelosi has a very large security wall around her own home now they're going to try to wall in washington d.c. and claim that it's dangerous violent trump supporters that require them to do this it rumps history trumps legacy is completely unacceptable to democrats and they are
8:28 am
