anti trump protesters accuse the president of supporting far right extremism after his delay condemnation of hate groups two days after the deadly violence in charlotte. head to the googles accused of censorship after its automated tracking system skews the searches and deletes video scenes from journalists and groups on you tube. that. germany's key campaign as election fever fails it seems to ignite parties and voters in the most powerful country.
good afternoon this is r.t. on choosing the fifteenth of august here in moscow is kevin i will review this our first in this thirty minute update than two days after the bloody clashes in the u.s. town of charlottesville donald trump has bowed to overwhelming pressure made a second statement denouncing racism and hate groups he's been under fire for failing to single out the role of white supremacists in saturday's brawls which culminated in a car being driven into a crowd of counter protesters killing one woman we condemn in the strongest possible terms. this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many sites on many. racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the k.k.k.
neo nazis white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as americans nonetheless much of the media still criticized the president for his delayed response leaving him to tweet that the fake news media will never be satisfied and tweet he then headed to new york where he was met by crowds of protesters outside trump tower accusing him of racism next in kalam open looks at how america's political debate these days all about labeling. one of the chants most frequently used at the protests is no trump no k.k.k. hell fascist usa essentially trump and his supporters of being barred the same price as white supremacy. now the suspect in the horrific charlottesville car ramming was himself
a member of the far right but the mayor of the city was very quick to put his blame on the white house and president romney and he wasn't a law he should look in the mirror but he made a choice in his presidential campaign the folks around with him to you know go right to the gutter to play our worst prejudices and i think you are seeing a direct line from what happened here this weekend to those choices trump has made it clear with bannon gorka in the white house and the klan in the streets it is now the white supremacists house. the incitement of hatred to the got us here is as real and condemn the bill as the white supremacists you know was tweets the democratic response to the car ramming mirrors the way republicans responded to the shooting at the congressional baseball practice they blame democrats for stoking up the atmosphere while reality the attack was carried out by a loud republican a that you had an increasing intensity of hostility on the left three percent
tension has been building. i think since election night the hype of both vitriol from the left has spurred threats and now action without historical parallel events like today are exactly why we took issue with and why elites glorifying the assassination of a president now most americans liberal conservative or otherwise are not violent however it seems like the leaders of the two major political parties try to make the other half of the electorate look like they are and that seems to be mobilizing people in both camps if you want to start something. and demonize me and i don't give. thanks. to our better. than that.
was the united states has created a political system in a way to demonizing one side means supporting the other side for many voters those who haven't really learned that much about their parties yet the the solution to this is to reduce some of these impediments to we need a system in which political parties have to fight for their own ideas they have to show why what they believe is good and why it's right and what's an excellent idea . and not just focus on demonizing the other side so no matter what your political outlook is the best strategy seems to be the same generalizing. it will pop and artsy your. right wing protest in charlottesville it centered around the removal of a civil war monument which had luckily been regarded as symbolizing racism similar confederate statues elsewhere are being targeted by companies in recent months to just yesterday monday protesters destroyed one in north carolina and pictures of.
demonstrators gathered outside the county courthouse there to talk with some could be seen climbing on it while others as you can see pulled a rope to bring it to the ground the crowd also chanted slogans such as we are the revolution no k.k.k. no fascist usa you son of a several experts on why the confrontation in charlotte for the weekend led to the deadly ground. as a conservative you have to lay blame exactly where it lies lies with this white nationalist group the k.k.k. and any any of their ilk and what they did was they went specifically to you know liberal college towns like charlottesville virginia where the university of virginia is located to store claims the stoke the flames of hate and i harbor now the president clearly renounced the trump administration has white
supremacists in the white house like steve bannon and sebastian gorka and that if he is really going to make his words mean anything he should fire them i also want to lay blame on the local authorities for allowing these white supremacist groups not their free speech i am all for free speech but to come in with their weapons their shields their ready for combat their pepper spray everybody who was there. no matter what was amazed. at the non-reaction you know this is normally this is a country where we tell the police back off the hyper militarization of the police that are not in charlottesville they do so while we're out here see a.t.o.s. these people that arrive in charlottesville as such are fringe percentage of the population is so small we have such strong to move you and civil society groups
there would hate crime have soared since donald trump has been in office the southern poverty law center keeps track of those very specifically and the number of hate crimes has absolutely soared we see it is rarely seen worse before we. list minnesota and the president saying nothing about the bombing of a mosque it's called they ate a fractionalized de stabilizing pitting white people i guess black people and creating the illusion that diebold trump because he did not list your particular phraseology. because he left somewhat out even though he added it's daughter and jeff sessions said they hated everything that was hateful that wasn't good enough you know now if you know if this mainstream media are here to do one thing or one thing only to get rid of this president. you tube and its parent
company google a big accused of stifling alternative viewpoints the cracking down on extremists come to put of also removed legitimate falls from journalists and opposition groups just look at reports internet regulation is becoming ever more automated meaning the machines are now in charge of monitoring what you write and post so when you have your video taken down it's nothing personal it's just the algorithm you tube now has computers largely responsible for blocking stream of content and the company is head over heels with the cutting edge technology that makes this all possible over seventy five percent of the videos we've removed for violent extremism over the past month were taken down before receiving a single human flag. and that all sounds well and good given that in theory machines should be objective but it turns out they're not recently we've seen a number of journalists monitors and syrian opposition groups have their content blocked despite the fact that very similar videos went untouched on mainstream news
channels you two pages those who are targeted say the site is purposely trying to erase certain documentation of the war i think what's so troubling about this if we look at the syrian accounts this is video chronicling a six or seven year war and some of the most important parts of that war from the perspective of syrians you tube though still has faith that its machines know best well these tools are imperfect and untried for every setting in many cases our systems have proven more accurate than humans and videos that need to be removed and the video sharing website isn't alone in being found at fault google has also come under fire for showing bias that was after a number of left wing and progressive news outlets were removed from search results after new protocols were enacted by google those alternative sites claim they've seen a drastic drop and eye to video on their pages sense then yet the search engine giant says the newly adopted policies were applied simply to help improve the quality of
results we updated our research quality reader guidelines to flag upsetting user experiences including pages that present conspiracy theories unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint and that last little bit is a very important to take note of unless a user specific lee indicates they are interested in a quote alternative viewpoint they will be getting that when you look at the actual application of the artificial intelligence programs what you actually see is the. common and very natural organic stupidity of silicon valley elites who are since sorious in nature and actually seek to scrub the internet of divergent opinions the journalist yasha levine actually tested google's artificial intelligence which rate certain phrases as toxic so yasha levine put in phrases for example like america is corrupt and that was rate is ninety two percent toxic meanwhile when yahshua
levine entered the phrase hitler was right in everything he did it was only thirty four percent toxics so censorship continues to rear its ugly head online but where a group of experts could have been made to answer for this before there are now only machines which as we've seen aren't as unbiased as we first thought. r.t. washington d.c. . elections are living for europe's powerhouse germany but despite the potential far reaching consequences of the vote things seem to be a bit like a list of us for that's a big contrast into how the french campaign was running at this stage. but some of them have been so lucky. that so making sure you could have been a complete with as you.
us. the german election race. angle america is not only one of the world's most powerful leaders she may well be one of the world's most laid back politicians so much so that she decided to take three weeks off and then telling else right before the german voters determine whether or not she can run for a fourth term next month the fact that she chose to wear the very same outfit for
the last five trips she took to the same location just goes to show how well she understands her people that they prefer the status quo and change isn't necessarily good don't take my word for it just take a look at the polls support for merkel drop ten points while she's breathing in that italian a mountain air but she's still way ahead of her mean rival as speedy leader march and schultz who couldn't get any hiking stations in his schedule because he's busy campaigning like any other politician would the former european parliament spokesman even try to provoke a reaction from the chancellor by claiming germany is not prepared for the future influx of refugees but not only that merkel ignore all of these prosecutions just pepper sprayed him a nickname of the chancellor shadowboxer courtesy of the local media the feeling of solidarity between states has been lost how did it get to this when did it start did it begin with a man whose decision to open borders and you agree with our partners in a moment when those partners were overloaded just. on the horizon is quite easy to
describe it's an s.p. the led government in september. i came to the streets of berlin to ask german voters not campaigning is a more subtle and effective form of election nearing when i ask you what you think about the election campaign so far it's. right. there campaigning. yeah i'm not so. why should it's interesting and just politically. active i can tell you right now because i think like i'm working so hard right now i'm not. i don't know anything about it right now i'm not into the election right now so far but the actual. german well it's a good question and it's like to tell you they're enjoying the summer and cast the
right ball come autumn says this poster by miracle c.d.u. party which aptly symbolizes her laid back campaign style and they suit r t. v well them back fresh from holiday and fresh on the election trail angle of merkel got a frosty reception at one rally. where she was booed and whistled up while speaking about the country's refugee policy supporters of the right leaving for germany party staged a protest against merkel's policy of open borders for refugees as we heard about just now they're holding banners reading merkel's go and borders instead of c.d.u. reference to merkel's party they also called for the chancellor to resign. to political analyst a consultant who says germans generally don't like taking political risks. well the german is different and if you compare him to the american or to french people
germans usually are rather conservative they do not like experiments and they do not tend also to support political movements that are under heavy criticism so if something like they are turning to for germany or also deutschen. them you will immediately see that the political players with the help of the media will attack those newsman's and people will just be scared away from supporting such parties and therefore the germans they are specifically conservative they are fearful even of supporting movements that are under criticism and therefore i think you cannot expect from germany leadership in a real big challenges of our times. a lot more to come stay with us for canada to
in fattening up administrators they're not hiring doctors they're not actually improving health but they are creating more bureaucracy more fees more infant mortality life expectancy is dropping overall health standards are collapsing. an elderly palestinian couple have lived in the same house in east jerusalem for more than fifty years a number less about to be evicted by israeli authorities. we lived for fifty three years to this house and it was a great injustice israel should give us back our land they take our homes and claim . they take all of trailers even farm here is seventy six years old her husband's
eighty four moved into that house back in one hundred sixty four which is three years before israel took over eastern jerusalem she says now the threat of this forthcoming a fiction is left them in despair. then. the police are threatening us we don't know what to do we are sitting here like fools we don't know whether to stay or leave we have nowhere to go maybe if we were to find at least a room we could leave but even if you were to drag out my husband and him he would refuse to go. israeli law stipulates that jewish residents can claim the rights to a property if they have proof that their families lived there prior to the one nine hundred forty eight war or right leaning settler group called the israel land fund in this case as one the court battle to claim the the couple's house the group's director insists is not about discrimination but rights though although no expect to be on it in the middle of their part real in the middle from dawn to tell your
payment to go out and leave telling you no i don't want to go out and this is what you must get good now after all they did this they taught that they know they don't want to give to let you go out from our apartment so then we told them we took them to quote the decision sparked anger among east jerusalem zero population where people of hell prayers outside the couple's house and support. the same fate awaits other arab residents of east jerusalem by the looks of it according to human rights watch fifteen thousand palestinians have been stripped of their residency status over the last fifty years. and believes the strong presence of the israeli lobby abroad prevents condemnation turning to real action though about this. situation now just horn is truly awful idea that these seven people may be evicted from their homes any day now is something that should trouble each and every person in jerusalem not only in it there are forty four other families who might face of
action if this election takes place and there is the peace chance for peace for all the people in jerusalem and in this region that is in jeopardy every time new hatreds goes into our homes into people's houses throws people out and put violent settlers instead of them buses are being talked about a lot and the issue of the occupation is being brought up again and again in different places around the world but that actual action is not really been taken i think that israel has a very strong lobby around the world. after just one hundred days as the president of france seems to show even that has gone off a little from emanuel mccrum once heralded as the champion of democratic values he's now is more unpopular than his predecessor. what's behind this even fall from grace. on may the seventh emanuel macross went to power as president of france.
his share of the vote was sixty six percent thirty nine years promised a fresh new era i am totally for the construction of a new model of governance people do seeing that we need reform we want to do reform so we with the reform we are a movement of profound rid of ational fast forward one hundred days and macros popularity has fallen faster than any french president even his previous francois holmes known as mr unpopular by the end of his presidency because of his record low ratings was doing better one hundred days in the nosedive in mccann's popularity time after. he said he wanted to reign like the mystical jupiter father of the gods while his first divine intervention was to force his military chief to resign after telling him in public that he macro knows better because he is in charge if you would push if you near city didn't place you.
in another high handed move macro cancelled the traditional bastille day media conference apparently because he regards his views as too deep for the shallow press and when micro wanted to make his wife the first lady with a public salary over three hundred thousand signed a petition against the plan saying they didn't want a queen bridgette so in just one hundred days the darling of french voters and the new face of french politics has lost the love of his people experts suggest voters fail to notice he was really offering them anything new in the first place he claimed to be and their turn a diva to the way of doing politics but she was born and raised in this system his education his you know forested jobs to be an investment bank good over him with all his career and oprah's fear is that of our elites the only difference between
him and you and mark all of the vicious or the system is he's a jerk and he's mother is in his way of governing arkell pretty can seem after three months the president has already fallen from grace or is one commentator put it the comments macron or indeed jupiter has come back down into the atmosphere a partridge party harris. because ratings are also believed to be influenced by as a part of session with public images which have to do that of a job he wanted a bigger office photo than any other president for instance and he looks like he tried to copy other leaders are willing photos to feature these he seizing every photo opportunity can seems to show that he has most touch of the people he's big football fan too just like barack obama of course also seems to be taken some cues from a former french president charles de gaulle publisher and journalist morville believes image is the only thing that mccrone can control within his party right now. he's compelled to enter the race because the m.p.c.
has. this policy has been created out of the blue and because they have a percent of the center seats they have hired people like in a business firm but without any experience of the political world you have for instance m.p.'s who say that there will be late at the trench assembly because they had their tennis lessons you can find m.p.'s welcome to unable to answer two simple questions to journalists mr macro doesn't have any policy that's why he pay so much attention to his image that's the only thing he can control in fact. it's twenty six minutes past me here in moscow i'm kevin owen you next for made about thirty minutes then but you can get used notifications as they happen on all the key social networks.
