I often feature Oxford Union debates on this blog. Here are some examples:
Malcolm X and self defense
The Snowden Debate
Beware of Bankers Bearing Gifts
The Oxford Union (OU) usually provide lively and democratic debate from all sides of the arguement. The latest OU debate, however, is a total disgrace. The two proponents are Bill Browder (an Anglo-American multi-billionaire who successfully lobbied for the US to pass the Magnitsky Act, a law to punish Russian human rights violators. He also testified to the US Senate on Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 American presidential election) and Robert Guest, Foreign Editor of The Economist.
There’s no debate here. Both proponents are totally paranoid Russophobes who go all out to bash President Putin and Russia. It’s not only a total joke, it’s also very frightening. I’m not going to embed the debate here; instead I’ll give a link to it for anyone who’s interested…
Russia | Full Head-to-Head Debate | Oxford Union
I’ve never seen such blatant, unchallenged propaganda from what is supposed to be one of the UK’s foremost seats of learning.
Oxford university has been totally infiltrated by the CIA et al. It will be a long time before the Oxford Union can live this one down, if ever.
