9:07 pm
movies and pasta for us to have been several effects in the seventy's or have you. seen to be coordinated in all of this attacking him. he smiled. and looked. for what came in those recent knife's of soul might be recording mission 5 days some disconnect in domestic routes. between what happened in here in mind what happened. in sons'. i don't know because influenced. mostly. you had to skip encourage dears. co-chairs. the former car its workers.
9:08 pm
that you know. if we remove most very. nice used to society of course. because. there's a vote and so on there is just a very thorough way you're. not there is no reason. visited the city center not long before the violence began she believes the timing of the terror attack was well planned i think it was really it was hard to attack the special on since day and my p.d. unseeingly you of course in because it tomorrow is a lockdown tomorrow as the 20 pm and so slice 18 the morning we have everybody must stay at home except for 5 they're equal to the reason so of course i take it as
9:09 pm
a news that is i've been in the city since i've been in a very very heart of vienna uncropped and just one of the how far before the terror attack stockton and there are really many people sitting outside because i myself i you know want also to see what my friends and see. before the national lockdown for 4 more weeks but i decided to go to this club and to my usual sports but there are many people outside and everybody was sitting outside and joins us time so i think it was also is the reason why is it it specially today because in the news that many people will use this last opportunity because a lot of. the french president recently announced a clampdown on radical islam following a wave of terror incidents and it has sparked a war of words with turkey. if i suspect he said listen i understand and respect
9:10 pm
that people might be shocked by the caricature 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 write think and draw. so you there we see the countries that teach the world about human rights and democracy take the lead on islamophobia and xenophobia a fight needs to be put up against and to move them sentiment today just as the battle was waged against and to some it isn't in the wake of the holocaust. along with turkey muslim nations including pakistan and bangladesh have called for a boycott of french products there have been major rallies in those countries and also in yemen with the french flags set alight this comes after the french government shut down muslim aid groups and a major mosque following a series of stabbings and shootings.
9:11 pm
that. we 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. 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 have been able to come in with a knife will do is deadly deed 0 risk does not exist. there are i think
9:12 pm
40000 churches in france we could put a 1000000 and a half soldiers there but that would not change the problem we can take 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 conflict 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 president micro on his war in islam is that is the terminology that he's adopted which is and then murder urges in which he tarnishes every single system and holds muslims
9:13 pm
responsible for the action of a small minority of terrorists nothing i actually know from crum is really attacking. 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 separate into 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 someone telegrams what you mean by the what i mean by that is they hate speech is against the western way of living against a security way of living 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
9:14 pm
the veil this is not what we are listening to certainly the pen is approved but is still not is there nothing to take place to 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. people want some meats and i said this is a problem with people who are involved in terrorism if you want to bring people decent people who are against terrorism come together let's do that with this 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 end of that qur'an must experience into the laws of france which not least please no i have no answer for you and i don't know any of 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 neo nazis far right extremists or which is totally
9:15 pm
out of your vocabulary that just shows you just focused on demonology a whole community we all feel the same really the streets that 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 if you choose and basilicas and things of course because france that's the issue that france is having to deal with at this moment let's speak a sister let's take on their narrative but cherish but don't do that the expense of 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 are not to be attacked in a way has been light 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 latent muslims and whom i adore we can exist all together it fell out of that the condition that our traditions and loss of secularism are respected. donald trump's
9:16 pm
advisor on covert 19 has apologized for giving an interview to our team after a wave of criticism from mainstream media outlets speaking on going underground scott atlas slammed the use of lockdowns had to contain the spread of the virus. dr oz has been one of the one i will go down as an attic failure of our policy people who refused to accept they were wrong were wrong words used to exact they were wrong didn't know they didn't care and became a frenzy of stopping cold at night he says at all costs and those costs are massive and what's happened here is that the argument is undeniable the lock downs are killing people this is a very controversial fellow his views a controversial he has a lot of power has a lot of enemies in the united states and what happened when his opponents and we can call them that because this is largely the criticisms logic coming from c.n.n.
9:17 pm
. they went absolutely nuts saying how can they appear now on the eve of the elections on a russian propaganda channel senior white house official tells me dr scott atlas did not have approved from the white house before. adler's did it on his own without seeking approval from white house senior aides to raise concerns that atlas would it be on the russian outlet the scots atlas is having an 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 other democrat functionaries officials appeared about t. to talk about you know various topics regarding the bad demick the economy foreign
9:18 pm

9:19 pm
views were challenged by action without you know that the democrat leaning mainstream media says it's corona virus that could spell the end of the trump presidency and i think there's a gross distortion that is certainly. not. the risks to younger people is extremely low the university of washington study that says there will be 500000 dead by february kind of contradicting the you or your 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 social 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 trump's year stock markets breaking records the highest employment
9:20 pm
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 whatever. up and 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 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 said we're in deep the world is and we need. it was failing from the get go while much of the world hunkered down shut borders went into quarantine the us choose to ignore it the virus is just another flu official said had officials urged people to potentially sacrifice their lives so the economy
9:21 pm
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 what 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 thayil and his opponents his 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 well that is god's gift to the last. instead of uniting america the pandemic divided that there were protest against everything for mosques against mosques for shut down again shut down for trump against tribe against china against democrats now the democrats are politicizing the coronavirus you know.
9:22 pm
they're politicizing it we did one of the great jobs you see house preserved from doing to go home. he's given up he's couldn't you couldn't your family couldn't america of course the democrats didn't do any better look at new york 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 that that's something that we'd want to see we have heard a lot about the coronavirus spread after an emergency room doctor and he or she will tell you that it's the common flu it's concerning that if they are positive and they didn't know they were positive they're found by surveillance that means
9:23 pm
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 end this the vaccine. are already in the final stage. joe budden vaccine. fear is putting a little. literally doing it for political reasons 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 take it i'm not taking it is a spectacle of absurdity the coosa to 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
9:24 pm
actual voting democrats urging people to malin their votes while republicans urging their boots to go vote in person. you're getting tired of the. i don't see if you saw the job for children jobs agenda mcdonald's or coverage of the town you know why the judge a judge everybody out of voting people aren't buying it see it. was and did what could only be described as monumental acts of duplicity and hypocrisy they would warrant each other law to 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 let's sort of crazy that it's become a political thing this is not
9:25 pm
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 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 really respect with the option written see who interviewed scott abbott's on going underground he said it is unsurprising that trump's covert adviser caused such a stir by appearing on r.t. . these arguably mccarthyite times we should expect that when
9:26 pm
journalists from countries other than the united states brought us information that are helpful is helpful could be helpful to united states citizens we should expect this kind of press opprobrium from the so-called liberal mainstream media this is a 1st amendment issue i think even though. he has to register under this foreign agents registration act which the name agent is probably probably hoodwinking a good few liberal journalists in the united states it doesn't mean we're all spies who were killed and it's a sad day i think freshly given the corona virus has killed hundreds of thousands of people all around the world the highest at all in the united states and all we were doing was giving the chance of some of the white house coronavirus task force to speak and i think he enjoyed the interview it was disappointing i think that he said he was taken advantage of how was he taken advantage of when he was allowed to speak to you or tease audience and the audience reach is hundreds of millions of
9:27 pm
people all around the world in doing so he will those who are hate him and dislike his scientific views to be attacked on all grounds how can he actually be a proper doctor if he doesn't know what he stood for and what the ownership. was about and who funded it the idea that all these networks can call straight on that rather than what's in the interview which affects the lives of hundreds of millions of americans. after months of relative or normality in countries across europe are going back into lockdown following a surge in corona virus infections case 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. was.
9:28 pm
you heard from journalist an economist paul wood nick he thinks some countries needed to rethink their priorities when dealing with a pandemic. as an economist i look at trade offs and 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 avoiding poverty and maintaining individual liberties so i understand it's difficult for any government right now to take the right decisions but it seemed too much could i think and towards trying to avoid infections in europe yeah we will most likely see
9:29 pm
civil unrest in crete over the next few months because of the lockdowns will be a harsh winter everyone hoped after 1st lockdown 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 now if you look at the polls in holland most people still support the law down end and strict measures but of course when we see the unemployment rise we see more bankruptcy there will probably be a point where people say ok no more and that's something you really seems treats of course and that will only increase as long as we we don't find a way to to to live or deal with with the virus and as for me this i'll be back with the headlines of about say 30 minutes your watch martin fashion.
9:30 pm
american media greed nearly in lockstep ovoid need to practice journalism again ideology trumps common sense reality after the election how many voters will say not my president.
