interesting week here he is on the russian propaganda network occy which casually opens the segment with some facts about u.s. imperialism when he was of an interview with russian propagandists talk to school to the supporters and radiologist who has the president's ear spitefully sub tweets dr anthony fauci an actual expert on infectious diseases you know there was never this sort of outrage when adam schiff or or other democrat functionaries officials appeared about t. to talk about you know various topics regarding bad demick the economy foreign relations and suddenly you know when this guy a trump of trump follow a close adviser of trump appears and r.t. all hell breaks loose we've got a bear in mind almost election time and everybody should to squeeze every little bit. of advantage that they can out of the situation they managed to successfully you know to get him to back down and apologize for recently did an interview with

9:05 am
lack of correlation between cases and deaths here the situation with covered in the united states is absolutely catastrophic the highest number of infected in the world it enormous enormous damage to the economy the sushil fabric of the united states and this is something i put together a report on on how these elections aren't so much about the economy and so much about foreign policy there now more than anything else about the pandemic 2020 was going to be trumps year stock markets breaking records the highest employment rate in a decade and he'd finally absolve himself of any ties to russia it was going so well nobody you know except one country can be held accountable for a. happened it was easy america's achilles heel the health care system paid health care where people can be billed hundreds of thousands of dollars for
9:06 am
hospitalization and we're talking here about a pandemic this was a system wide collapse they couldn't even agree on how to count the dead and he says. the world is and we need to act it was failure from the get go while much of the world hunkered down shut borders went into quarantine the u.s. choose to ignore it the virus is just another flu official said had officials urged old people to potentially sacrifice their lives so the economy could keep running let's get back to work let's get back to living let's be smart about it and those of us who are 70 plus what will take care of ourselves but don't sacrifice the country reality hit whom haad when emergency ward cartoons were lined with beds when hospitals had to pack bodies into freezer trucks because the morgues were full worse and worse and worse until even trump fell ill and his opponents his
9:07 am
opponents saw the pandemic saw all the mistakes as a miracle but a tremendous opportunity we're just so lucky we have to use it that is god's gift to the last. instead of uniting america the pandemic divided there were protest against everything for mosques against mosques for shut down again shut down for trump against trump against china against democrats now the democrats are politicizing the coronavirus you know. they're politicizing it we did one of the great jobs you see house president drew from doing to go home. he's given up he's quit on you he's quit on your family he's quit on america of course the democrats didn't do any better look at new york
9:08 am
which ranks 10th in the world by hoover deaths among countries as many as in all of france or in all of spain whatever they now say however better they claim they could have handled this pandemic they didn't good news in the sense that it may not be as serious an illness in the vast majority of people but that's something that we'd want to see we have heard a lot about the coronavirus spread at any emergency room doctor and he or she will tell you that it's the common flu that's concerning them if they are positive and they didn't know they were positive they're found by surveillance that means that they weren't that sick the vast majority of people aren't going to get sick from this and this nonsense has continued for the whole year states shutting down and reopening based not on infection statistics but political affiliation a week of arguing between the reds and the blues about stimulus about couvade relief for ordinary folk they even managed to politicize the one thing that will
9:09 am
end this the vaccine vaccines are already in the final stage. joe budden vaccine. fear is putting a little at risk are literally doing it for political. since it's very foolish if the doctors tell us that we should take it i'll be the 1st in line to take it absolutely but if donald trump tells us i said to him that we've taken i'm not taking it is a spectacle of absurdity the coosa the election we got the more ridiculous it became they were arguing not about who to vote for her but about how to do the actual voting democrats people to malin their votes while republicans are in their boots to go vote in person. you're getting tired of that then democrat. you turn on c.n.n. if you saw the cover coverage of the 10 democrats at coverage of the town you know
9:10 am
why they're trying to talk everybody out of voting people aren't buying it seeing dumb bastards that i did what could only be described as monumental acts of duplicity and hypocrisy they warned warned each other a lot of politicize the pad demick the same people that brought you all of these the bungled response the in a name celts and accusations had the gall to say this this is become a political thing and that's sort of crazy that it's become a political thing this is not a time to score political points to baseless commentary it is a time for facts unfortunately it's become very clear the democrats are more interested in keeping the coronavirus as a political issue than actually fighting the virus we all know about the memes about 2020 what a catastrophe it's been and it has but no matter who wins this election no matter how they win they will inherit a country riddled with division and infection
9:11 am
a population seeking tod of politicians and duplicity for many this isn't an election about picking the better president it's an election about making sure that the other guy loses journalist and broadcaster neil clark told us that some in the west want a single media environment where every outlet toss a line. this is the age old sort of mccarthyites me exactly what you do is you play the man not the ball. in other words you don't focus on what he actually said he was a very good interview he made some very good strong points against lockdowns this is the debate we should be having but rather than actually listen to what the guy had to say about that no the narrative is all about it's switched to oh he appeared on a russian channel this is terrible you know seen as r.t. started in america and in britain it's been under attack from russia. from people who are happy that mcconnell is out there able to for people to be able to watch in
9:12 am
the western countries that actually puts forward a different perspective than what you normally get on a lot of the other channels so it's an intimidation campaign so the anybody who appears on r.t. in america over britain who has public standing who is this show politician a journalist etc will be targeted and they'll be told 1st oh you know good you know arty was an agent of the russian government blah blah blah hopefully the person would say oh i'm sorry i didn't realize i was on again obvious good boy and after that it gets nasty it gets attacks this person is r.t. and this is this is serious so there's lots of ways to there's more the one way to censor media outlets the that most obvious way is just take them off the air pull the plug but they are using different methods to do this and to try to get a look at to my eyes and to and to marginalize r.t. and people who go on it and i think everybody needs to be aware of that and ask themselves a simple question why why is it so important to these people to attack media
9:13 am
pluralism why is same point for these people to spend so much time on attacking r.t. and people who go on it they must be a reason for that. after months of relative normality countries across europe are going back into lockdown following a search in corona virus infections his numbers have doubled in the past 5 weeks to reach 10000000 and this time around the containment measures are being met with strong public resistance.
9:14 am
well we've seen that demonstrations taking place across europe against measures that are being put in place to try and stop the spread of covert 19 europe 10 percent of the world's population 22 percent roughly of the world's kovac 19 infections here in germany where i'm speaking to you from we've just entered into what's been called lockdown light from monday called said she wants to try and get infections of covert 19 down by around 75 percent in germany and the way that they're going about doing that is trying to keep open as many schools kindergartens and elements of business as possible at the expense of social contact so it's the it is bars restaurants beauty salons james that are paying the price they're the ones that are going to be shutting down in the attempt to do this however in bringing in these measures some politicians here in germany were caught breaking them already.
9:15 am
the focus should now be on protecting the population and at such time when the demanding so much from people politicians need to set an example. well the covert 19 measures that have come into place here in germany mean that bars and restaurants will have to close for normal business they will be allowed to carry out operations to take out well new covert 19 measures are being put in place
9:16 am
across europe in france we saw them enter into a really strict new lockdown where pretty much all of the same measures that were in place in the spring up back in force similar measures taking effect in belgium on saturday night the british prime minister boris johnson announced that the u.k. will reenter a month long lockdown from thursday number of all the countries either introducing new measures are expected to introduce new measures over the coming weeks or one country that has seen a big rise in the number of cases is russia 18665 new confirmed infections of covert 19 on sunday the number of dead in the country has now passed the 28000 mark there are no signs of a new full lockdown coming into place in russia however over 60 five's have been told to stay at home as much as possible those in the out risk category we know the
9:17 am
virus attacks those who are older much harder than it does the young but when it comes to things like night life in cities like moscow that remains open may said it is so beyond the rushing of the mayor of the russian capital is said that the q.r. code system that's being used to allow people into bars and nightclubs will continue but it may be under review should cases continue to rise we heard from journalist and economist paul be attained he believes some countries need to rethink their priorities when dealing with pandemic. as an economist i look at trade offs and to be honest measures taken in most of europe like the lockdowns do seem too much focused on trying to avoid infections at all costs rather than trying to find a balance between debt and other goals such as keeping the gandhi life affording poverty and maintaining individual liberties so i understand it's difficult for any government right now to take the right decisions but it seems too much could i
9:18 am
think and towards trying to avoid infections in europe yeah we will most likely see civil unrest in crete over the next few months because of the lockdowns will be harsh winter everyone hoped after 1st lot now with the relatively mild summer that the worst was over but now we started the new episode off of another lockdown and god knows how long this will take so what will be very challenging for the rest of the year and also early next year for know is if you look at the polls in holland most people still support the lockdown and the strict measures but look of course when we see the unemployment rise we see we're bankruptcy's there will probably be a point where people say ok no more and that's something you really seem streets of course and it will only increase as long as we we don't find a way to to to live or deal with with the fires still to come this hour turkey accuses france of the n.f.l. be out over its crackdown on hard line islamic art that after the sharp reich.
9:19 am
seem wrong. we're all just all. yet to say proud is the answer. and in detroit. the trail. went on find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person of those great. dares
9:20 am
thinks. we dare to ask. for. a comeback the french president has infuriated many in the muslim world with his clampdown on radical islam following a wave of terrorist attacks and it sparked a war of words with turkey. if i spect he said look i understand and respect that people might be shocked by the caricature was but i will never accept that someone can justify physical violence because of them i will always defend my country's freedom to speak to right think and drawl. so you see the countries that
9:21 am
teach the world about human rights and democracy take go eat in islamophobia and xenophobia a fight needs to be put up against and to move them sentiment today just as a battle was waged against and to some it is more in the wake of the holocaust. along with turkey a muslim nations including pakistan and bangladesh have called for a boycott of french products arab and major rallies in those countries and also in yemen with the french flag set alight as after the french government shut down muslim aid groups and a major mosque accused of inciting extremism as measures have been a ramp up since the beheading of a teacher and paris he showed his students caricature of the prophet muhammad and they followed a serious effort terrorist incidents in france. we
9:22 am
are at war against terrorism terrorism can always strike there is no 0 risk and the state is doing its utmost to protect the french people. the french demand justice who want these people to be deported to their country or like we are in a country that has witnessed atrocities great teachers being beheaded priests having less throats slit people are beheaded in a church that's not france and even if we take in all possible security measures peter's been able to come in with a knife to do is deadly deed 0 risk does not exist york out there are i think 40000 churches in. you know we could put a 1000000 and
9:23 am
a half soldiers there but that would not change the problem we counted as someone who wants to kill someone else many countries especially in the middle east have taken measures against terrorists for knife attacks. we discussed the worsening situation with our guests. the president a french president was very right to confirm that we stand for a secular state and for the freedom of speech in the secular state of france religion is seen as an opinion we need to address radical islam in france and we are in a war against radical islam and i don't think mr micro is going far enough you can never justify terrorism or violence of any sort so what is the issue with the president micro on his war in islam is that is the terminology that he's adopted which is and then the urges in which he tarnishes every single muslim and holds muslims responsible for the action of a small minority of terrorists nothing i actually heard from. it is really
9:24 am
attacking islam and moderate muslims in france what what i think he's trying to do is say look we have a country here we have laws and regulations that we've built up over centuries and this is how this country works and actually goes extremists who have a completely different view of how they want life to be and maybe separating so their own type of society. france is probably not for them we need to deport foreigners who preach islam on our grounds we have radical in mom's preaching. against. grams what you mean by that what i mean by that is by hate speech is against the western way of living against a securely way of living and we have men not shaking women's hands we have most preaching for separate swimming 0 is we have young girls going being told to put on the veil this is not what we think it is certainly the pen. it is
9:25 am
a lot is there nothing to take place that's stop tonight is to be and talking about you know what you talking about you just sound like as if you're talking from the national fruit and here gender of the far right we as muslims recognize we have a problem there are. people want some it's set this there's a problem with people who are involved in terrorism he want to bring people decent people who are against terrorism come together let's do that but just do away with this rhetoric that we're hearing tonight mr shafiq you oughta know that many mosques in france are preaching and saying that the laws of the of the qur'an are superior to the loss of france which nice please no i have no answer for you and i do not envy you oh that's your father francis crick what about your colleagues in the far right what about the colleagues in the far right not a single word about the far right near nazis far right extremists or which is totally out of kilter kaberle that just shows you're just focused on demonizing
9:26 am
a whole community we all feel the same maybe the streets need to be dealt with and the police are having to deal with the rise in right wing extremism but at this moment today we're talking about people being beheaded jews and basilicas and things of course because france that's the issue that france is having to deal with at this moment let's be consistent let's take on the narrative of terrorists but don't do that the expense of orderly innocent muslims around the world we uphold terrorism but we also want the right you know for our boys to be heard in these countries i'm afraid not to be attacked in the way it has been tonight france is a country where all religions can peacefully live together and i live together with millions of muslims i have many muslim friends who are and lated muslims and whom i adore we can exist all together at france under the condition that our traditions and loss of secularism are respected. that's been our breakdown of the day's top headlines for this hour thanks for tuning in werribee maybe.
