The lunatic Left never ceases to amaze us. On Sunday, former Green party presidential candidate and anti-vaccine medical doctor Jill Stein appeared on MSNBC to defend both North Korea and Russia. Yes, seriously.
Espousing recycled far-left conspiracy theories, Stein argued that the United States is looking to “demonize” the brutal dictatorship of Kim Jong Un in order to pursue a policy of regime change.
“The demonization of North Korea is part of the run-up to regime change,” she blabbered.” “It’s part of demonizing a government that we then want to exercise regime change on.”
Stein continued, plunging herself deeper and deeper down the rabbit’s hole of ignorance:
But remember where that came from. … Long before they began their missile tests, the U.S. was conducting nuclear bombing runs against North Korea. We actually had nuclear weapons until the end of the Cold War. We actually had nuclear weapons stationed in South Korea.
Doubling-down on paranoid "blame the West" pseudo-intellectual, post-colonial theory, Stein actually suggested that America is actually to blame for the North Korean regime’s missile testing, nuclear threats, and provocations.
“So, this is very frightening to them,” the far-left nut job said, referring to North Korea’s supposed fear brought upon by the big-bad U.S. hegemonic superstructure. “They have been basically cornered into feeling like they have to develop a nuclear weapon.”
Oh, yes, the classic ‘let’s casually develop nuclear weapons because we’re scared of those evil Americans’ song and dance.
Unfortunately, Stein’s rant didn’t end there.
The former Green party candidate went on to defend Russia in the wake of overwhelming Congressional support for a new U.S. sanctions bill.
“Sanctions basically play into Russia’s hand. We know that sanctions only strengthen a leader like Putin and make him the protector against the evil United States,” she said.
Stein’s position on Russia shouldn’t be surprising given her frequent appearances on Russian state propaganda network RT.
Watch as Stein goes out of her way to defend some of the world’s worst tyrants:
Stein’s general viewpoint is not uncommon, at least among left-wing activist types. The sad truth is, Jill Stein wannabes are a dime a dozen on college campuses these days.
