Video: Man Ordered To Leave Televised Q&A For Expressing Wrongthink On Russia

“It was a rogue question”

A Russian-Australian man was told to leave a television studio after he asked a ‘rogue’ question and pointed out that there is an alternative narrative to be considered surrounding the conflict in Ukraine.

The audience member Sasha Gillies-Lekakis was speaking on a live Australian debate show when he expressed support for Russia’s actions in Ukraine, angering other audience members and surprising the host of the show, Stan Grant.

“As someone who comes from the Russian community here in Australia, I’ve been pretty outraged by the narrative depicted by our media, with Ukraine as the good guy and Russia as the bad guy,” Gillies-Lekakis said.

“Believe it or not, there are a lot of Russians here and around the world that support what Putin’s doing in Ukraine, myself included,” he added before claiming that Ukraine has previously “besieged” the Russian populations in Donetsk and Luhansk, killing thousands of people.

Other audience members heckled him and yelled ‘propaganda’ and ‘lies’, while the host Grant moved the program on.

Around twenty minutes later Grant returned to Gillies-Lekakis and said he had ‘thought about it’ and wasn’t comfortable allowing him to stay in the studio.

“Something has been bothering me,” Grant said, adding “people here have been talking about family who are suffering and people who are dying. Can I just say – I’m just not comfortable with you being here. Could you please leave?”

“You can ask a question, but we cannot advocate violence. I should have asked you to leave then. It‘s been playing on my mind and, I’m sorry, but I have to ask you to leave,” the host added.

Watch:

Here is the question with the panel of guests reacting, before Grant asked Gillies-Lekakis to leave:

Grant later stated “we can’t have anyone who is sanctioning, supporting, violence and killing of people. So I‘m sorry for the disruption. It was not a vetted question. It was a rogue question. It’s not good.”

In a now removed Facebook post, Gillies-Lekakis explained that he “supports Putin’s grievances regarding the breaking of the Minsk Peace Agreement by Ukraine and the ensuing loss of life, particularly in the Russian-populated areas of the Donbas”.

He added, “My question, furthermore, sought to question why these Russian deaths were seemingly less important compared to Ukrainian casualties in our media coverage, and whether the panellists thought there was any hypocrisy in their positions as a result.”

“This is reflected in my question as published on the Q+A website. Unfortunately, I was unable to fully finish asking my question nor clarify myself despite trying, and so believe that my words were misrepresented and incomplete,” he further wrote.

Gillies-Lekakis further noted that his question was not ‘rogue’ and was submitted to the show’s producers beforehand, adding that he wasn’t able to ask it in full before being interrupted.

“The only addition I made to my question when actually delivering it was my reference to the Azhov Battalion (7-8 words roughly), and some sentences were left out towards the end as I was interrupted,” he said.

He added, “If this small change to my question amounts to it being ‘rogue’, as was claimed, once again I apologise. However, I find this difficult to reconcile with the fact that other guests were given the chance to speak at length, off-script, on the Russia-Ukraine situation.”

He said the Q+A host was “disappointing and unprofessional” and accused the network ABC of “questionable conduct” during the night.

“I am genuinely sorry that things took the turn they did … if my question was not appropriate for the show after being vetted and edited, I wonder why I was invited at all,” he noted, adding “I would like to say that I had no intention whatsoever of offending anyone, and so would like to sincerely apologise for any distress my comments may have caused.”

The incident has unsurprisingly caused division on social media, with some arguing these questions and opinions must be debated, while others proclaimed to do so is to support the bombardment and murder of innocent people:

    Video: Thermal Drone Footage Shows Army Of Illegals Entering U.S.

    “It happens every morning”

    Footage captured by a thermal drone shows an army of illegal migrants entering the U.S. at Eagle Pass, Texas, yesterday with the reporter who captured the footage noting that it happens “every morning”.

    The video shows scores of migrants lined up ready to cross into the U.S. under cover of darkness.

    Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweeted out the footage Thursday, noting that there have been over 1,400 crossings in the Del Rio sector alone in the past 24 hours, and close to seventy thousand since the beginning of last month.

    Texas GOP ~Senator Ted Cruz commented on the footage, noting that “5,000,000 illegal aliens have crossed the border since Joe Biden was elected.”

    Last week, similar footage captured migrants streaming into Eagle Pass basically unimpeded.

    Speaking last week, Melugin urged that he witnesses the same thing happen every morning “with no resistance” on either side of the border.

    Melugin noted that many of the migrants he speaks to repeat the same phrase, “Joe Biden es el major”.

    Melugin recently highlighted newly released CBP numbers showing close to a quarter of a million encounters with migrants at the border in October alone, with 64,000 recorded “gotaways”.

    As we highlighted last month, newly published federal data revealed that close to a hundred individuals listed on the FBI terror watchlist have been apprehended at the Southern border in the last year, a record high and a huge uptick in recent months.

    Federal Data Quietly Reveals 100 Terror Suspects Caught At Southern Border

    The data was highlighted by Melugin, as he noted that the figure is almost four times the previous five years combined:

    Previous data from 2019 indicated that zero terror suspects had been encountered at the border.

    Earlier this week, DHS Secretary Mayorkas laughably insisted that the southern border is secure:

    Video: NBC News Advises Parents To Keep Kids Away From “Unvaccinated Individuals”

    Medical correspondent falsely claims “we don’t know why” more kids are getting sick from respiratory viruses

    Published

    As winter looms, NBC News has some top tips for parents who are concerned about their children catching respiratory viruses… keep them away from the dirty unvaccinated people.

    In a recent segment, an infographic advised that those who want to “protect” their children should wash hands, stay home, get vaccines and “avoid physical interaction with unvaccinated individuals.”

    There is no actual evidence that unvaccinated individuals are more at risk of transmitting COVID or that the vaccines prevent the spread of the virus, but never mind that inconvenient distraction.

    The anchors then asked medical correspondent Dr. John Torres why more children are now so susceptible to RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), to which he responded “we don’t exactly know why.”

    That is also not true, given that the CDC recently issued a report highlighting how a record number of children are now being hospitalised with common colds due to weakened immune systems.

    Commenting on the findings, Dr Scott Roberts, a medical director at Yale University stated that lockdowns impacted the ability of children to build up immunity to common illnesses.

    “There are two implications to this,” the doctor said, explaining “First, the gap gives time for the viruses to mutate even further to cause more severe disease.”

    “And second, whatever immunity was built up to those viruses’ it will have waned making the immune response now much less potent,” Roberts added.

    The doctor also noted that children, including his own son are now getting “constant infections.”

    The CDC data is consistent with research by scientists at Yale who warned that it is not normal to see children with combinations of seven common viruses, including adenovirus, rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), human metapneumovirus, influenza and parainfluenza, as well as COVID-19.

    But whatever, keeping your kids safely locked away at home and away from the unvaccinated is the smart move.

    Twitter’s workforce is expected to be gutted as soon as today, four people with direct knowledge of the matter told NYTimes. Managers of the social media platform have been asked to create lists of employees to cut. 

    Billionaire Elon Musk, who became “Chief Twit” on Thursday after finalizing the deal to purchase Twitter for $44 billion, immediately ordered company-wide cutsThe people in the know weren’t entirely sure about the scale of the layoffs. 

    Musk has recently said that he planned to cut 75% of the company’s 7,500 employees, leaving a workforce of approximately 2,000. 

    ‘FIRED’ Trends And Celebratory ‘Offensive’ Tweets Are Unleashed As Musk Sacks Woke Censorship Kingpins

    The layoffs would occur before Nov. 1, when employees are scheduled to receive stock grants as compensation. Musk could avoid paying the grants by laying off workers before that date. 

    On Wednesday, Musk walked into Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters carrying a kitchen sink in preparation for his takeover. He tweeted: “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” 

    The world’s richest man also changed his Twitter bio to “Chief Twit.”

    Musk has already fired Twitter’s chief executive, chief financial officer, and other executives.
