Zum medialen Umgang mit Trump

via Bildblog.de

How the media should be covering Donald J. Trump.
(facebook.com/GQ, Keith Olbermann, Video, 2:12 Minuten)
Der amerikanische Moderator Keith Olbermann hat sich mit einer vielbeachteten Videoansprache an die Medien gerichtet. Olbermann schlägt vor, die Liveberichterstattung von Trumps Reden einzustellen: „Use a delay, employ a team of fact checkers, play his rants, and each time he lies, stop the tape and state the facts. Do not participate in Trump’s propaganda game.“

  • [l] Ich spare mir heute mal 50 Trump-Links und verweise stattdessen auf diese ausgesprochen lesenswerte Analyse. Das müsst ihr alle gelesen haben, das ist ein Feuerwerk an Money Quotes und Grusel-Erkenntnissen. U.a.: Dass sie zum Holocaust Day die Juden nicht erwähnt haben, war Absicht. Die „Rücktritte“ beim Außenministerium waren Rausschmisse, weil das Außenministerium den Muslim-Ban ver- oder wenigstens behindert hätte. Das DHS hat explizit angeagt, dass es illegal ist, Green Card Holdern die Einreise zu verweigern. Und der absolute Hammer ist Punkt 6. Lest selbst.
  • [l] Warum muss eigentlich ausgerechnet Donald Trump der erste Präsident sein, der nach der Wahl umsetzt, was er vorher versprochen hat? Wörtlich!

[l] Wow. Ich habe hier einen Erste-Reihe-Sitz, während um mich herum die USA im Faschismus versinken.

Trump hat mal eben verkündet, dass ab sofort Flüchtlinge und Bürger aus 7 mehrheitlich muslimischen Ländern nicht mehr einreisen dürfen. Unter anderem ist Syrien auf der Liste, aber auch der Iran, mit dem Obama ja gerade erst Frieden geschlossen hatte, nach Jahrzehnten des kalten Krieges.

Dann kam raus, dass auch Green-Card-Besitzer betroffen sind, das ist die offizielle US-Arbeitserlaubnis für Ausländer, mit der eigentlich auch eine Aufenthaltserlaubnis verbunden ist.

Viele Leute wollten das erst gar nicht glauben, aber die Fluglinien mussten das wohl ziemlich direkt umsetzen. Und es gibt jetzt auch Meldungen von Moslems, die am Flughafen von den Grenzern in Gewahrsam genommen wurden, das ist quasi Gefängnis (ein Bekannter von mir hat das mal erlebt, und dem wurde vom Wärter wörtlich gesagt „it’s not a prison, but we run it like one“).

Die Schockwellen breiten sich langsam aus. Google hat seine Angestellten aus den betroffenen Ländern in die USA zurückgerufen, in der Hoffnung, dass das noch nicht sofort umgesetzt wird (was sich als falsch herausgestellt hat). Aber selbst wenn man als Iraner noch ein letztes Mal reingelassen wird, dann kann man ja auch seine Familie nicht mehr besuchen fahren und so.

Vielen Menschen wird jetzt gerade so richtig klar, was das heißt, wenn da ein marodierender Trump an der Macht ist. Mit diesem Einreise-Bullshit hat Trump übrigens auch Putin überholt, was viele nicht für möglich gehalten hätten. Für die war das Angstszenario, dass sich die USA an Russland annähern könnten, nicht dass es hier schlimmer als dort werden könnte.

Der Fairness halber muss man sagen, dass das „nur“ ein „temporäres Einreiseverbot“ ist bisher.

Die ACLU hat natürlich sofort Klage eingereicht. NPR weist darauf hin, dass aus keinem der Länder in den letzten 20 Jahren ein Terrorist kam, der die USA angegriffen hat. Und dass Trump in anderen muslimischen Ländern noch fröhlich Geschäfte macht.

Der Iran hat direkt angekündigt, dann auch keine Amerikaner mehr bei sich reinzulassen.

Man kann der Spirale echt live beim schlimmer werden zugucken.

Wie deprimierend. Und Trump ist erst eine Woche im Amt!! Wie soll denn das bitte weitergehen?!

TTIP Proteste nur Opfer von Propaganda?

Fefe-Fullquote zu TTIP:

Die Bundesregierung startet dann mal eine Aufklärungskampagne für TTIP. Denn, völlig klar, dass die Bevölkerung so großflächig gegen TTIP ist, das liegt bloß daran, dass die alle Opfer von Vorurteilen, Propaganda und Fehlinformationen geworden sind. Money Quote:

hinter der verbreiteten Kritik an TTIP „stünden Vorurteile“ wie etwa die Annahme, der „Freihandel sei ein Projekt der Deregulierung“ oder „führe zur Einschränkung der Demokratie“.

Ihr seht schon: Nichts könnte weiter von der Wahrheit entfernt sein!1!! (Danke, Peter)

OZ

Walter Josef Fischer—known here in Hamburg, Germany, as OZ—was a fucking legend, even if most people could never pick him out of a crowd. Aged and slow with a worn, creased face and a hunch, he walked unseen with me through Hamburg as he painted walls and swore at trains. And yet, with his spray can, he’d changed the face of this city.

Up until his death last Thursday, the 64-year-old left his tag—a simple smiley face—hundreds of thousands times on local walls, sidewalks, roofs and lampposts.

An artists collective has unfurled a massive poster showing a child’s face in a heavily bombed area of Pakistan in the hopes that it will give pause to drone operators searching the area for kills.

According to #notabugsplat, named after the description given to kills on the ground when viewed through grainy video footage, the artists – with help of villagers – unfurled the giant poster in a field in the Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa region of Pakistan.

The hope is that it will increase awareness of drone operators of human cost, or ‘collateral damage’, when drones are used to attack targets on the ground.

Putin’s Point of View

Putins Rede zum Krim-Referendum in der englischen Übersetzung. Hier einige interessante Auszüge daraus…

Über die zwei Seiten des ukrainischen Protests / On the two sides of the Ukranian protests

I would like to reiterate that I understand those who came out on Maidan with peaceful slogans against corruption, inefficient state management and poverty. The right to peaceful protest, democratic procedures and elections exist for the sole purpose of replacing the authorities that do not satisfy the people. However, those who stood behind the latest events in Ukraine had a different agenda: they were preparing yet another government takeover; they wanted to seize power and would stop short of nothing. They resorted to terror, murder and riots. Nationalists, neo-Nazis, Russophobes and anti-Semites executed this coup. They continue to set the tone in Ukraine to this day.

Über die UNO und die NATO-Kriege in Jugoslawien, Afghanistan, Irak und Libyen / On UNO and the western wars

Like a mirror, the situation in Ukraine reflects what is going on and what has been happening in the world over the past several decades. After the dissolution of bipolarity on the planet, we no longer have stability. Key international institutions are not getting any stronger; on the contrary, in many cases, they are sadly degrading.

Our western partners, led by the United States of America, prefer not to be guided by international law in their practical policies, but by the rule of the gun. They have come to believe in their exclusivity and exceptionalism, that they can decide the destinies of the world, that only they can ever be right. They act as they please: here and there, they use force against sovereign states, building coalitions based on the principle “If you are not with us, you are against us.” To make this aggression look legitimate, they force the necessary resolutions from international organisations, and if for some reason this does not work, they simply ignore the UN Security Council and the UN overall.

This happened in Yugoslavia; we remember 1999 very well. It was hard to believe, even seeing it with my own eyes, that at the end of the 20th century, one of Europe’s capitals, Belgrade, was under missile attack for several weeks, and then came the real intervention. Was there a UN Security Council resolution on this matter, allowing for these actions? Nothing of the sort. And then, they hit Afghanistan, Iraq, and frankly violated the UN Security Council resolution on Libya, when instead of imposing the so-called no-fly zone over it they started bombing it too.

Über die Farbrevolutionen und den arabischen Frühling / On the „colour revolutions“ and the Arab Spring

There was a whole series of controlled “colour” revolutions. Clearly, the people in those nations, where these events took place, were sick of tyranny and poverty, of their lack of prospects; but these feelings were taken advantage of cynically. Standards were imposed on these nations that did not in any way correspond to their way of life, traditions, or these peoples’ cultures. As a result, instead of democracy and freedom, there was chaos, outbreaks in violence and a series of upheavals. The Arab Spring turned into the Arab Winter.

A similar situation unfolded in Ukraine. In 2004, to push the necessary candidate through at the presidential elections, they thought up some sort of third round that was not stipulated by the law. It was absurd and a mockery of the constitution. And now, they have thrown in an organised and well-equipped army of militants.

Die „überschrittene Linie“ / The „crossed line“

We understand what is happening; we understand that these actions were aimed against Ukraine and Russia and against Eurasian integration. And all this while Russia strived to engage in dialogue with our colleagues in the West. We are constantly proposing cooperation on all key issues; we want to strengthen our level of trust and for our relations to be equal, open and fair. But we saw no reciprocal steps.

On the contrary, they have lied to us many times, made decisions behind our backs, placed us before an accomplished fact. This happened with NATO’s expansion to the East, as well as the deployment of military infrastructure at our borders. They kept telling us the same thing: “Well, this does not concern you.” That’s easy to say.

(…) In short, we have every reason to assume that the infamous policy of containment, led in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, continues today. They are constantly trying to sweep us into a corner because we have an independent position, because we maintain it and because we call things like they are and do not engage in hypocrisy. But there is a limit to everything. And with Ukraine, our western partners have crossed the line, playing the bear and acting irresponsibly and unprofessionally.

Abschließende Worte an China, Indien, die USA und Deutschland / To China, India, USA and Germany

At the same time, we are grateful to all those who understood our actions in Crimea; we are grateful to the people of China, whose leaders have always considered the situation in Ukraine and Crimea taking into account the full historical and political context, and greatly appreciate India’s reserve and objectivity.

Today, I would like to address the people of the United States of America, the people who, since the foundation of their nation and adoption of the Declaration of Independence, have been proud to hold freedom above all else. Isn’t the desire of Crimea’s residents to freely choose their fate such a value? Please understand us.

I believe that the Europeans, first and foremost, the Germans, will also understand me. Let me remind you that in the course of political consultations on the unification of East and West Germany, at the expert, though very high level, some nations that were then and are now Germany’s allies did not support the idea of unification. Our nation, however, unequivocally supported the sincere, unstoppable desire of the Germans for national unity. I am confident that you have not forgotten this, and I expect that the citizens of Germany will also support the aspiration of the Russians, of historical Russia, to restore unity.
