Riots, looting, and general protests have erupted across the country. Most will tell you these rebellious displays are a reaction to the George Floyd incident last week. And that’s mostly accurate.
After all, racial tensions exploded after the unfortunate death of an African-American man in the custody of Minneapolis police.
Of course, nobody thinks Russia could be involved…
…nobody besides Susan Rice, that is.
Barack Obama’s national security adviser recently suggested during an interview that the Russians might be responsible for such violent demonstrations.
Here are her comments, via Fox News:
…I’m not reading the intelligence these days, but based on my experience this is right out of the Russian playbook as well.
“I would not be surprised to learn that they have fomented some of these extremists on both sides using social media.
I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they are funding it in some way, shape, or form.

We know top Democrats have been harping on the Trump/Russia collusion theory since the moment Trump stepped into the Oval Office.
But this is taking it just a touch too far, right?
I mean, even admitted leftist commentators can’t make sense of Rice’s bizarre claim.
For example, a journalist at the progressive outlet Common Dreams, Eoin Higgens, flat-out said Rice’s Russia theory was basically crazy:
You cannot make this sh– up. F—ing deranged.
Yeah, maybe “deranged” is the right word here. We know Democrats have been obsessed with the Russia narrative for years, but tying it to the Floyd protests is…well, weird.
Why would Russia want to spark riots? What incentive do they have? What role could they possibly play in the Floyd tragedy?
Perhaps someone should follow up with Rice and ask these questions.
Do you think Susan Rice is crazy for suggesting Russia has anything to do with the Floyd protests? SHARE if the answer is YES!
