tv The Alex Salmond Show RT April 26, 2018 6:30pm-7:01pm EDT
let. me be ok in response the c.e.o. of starbucks ordered all restaurants to close mandatory anti racism training following a nationwide campaign against we got reaction from economists state perkins and human rights activists to run the show. of racism against the two sions is real and the prejudices real but we need to care about america as well as an entire society and look after everyone if we don't do this we're going to have worse problems i have enormous difficulty accepting the idea that this young lady trying to run her starbucks in philadelphia spends time thinking about class and segregation and trying to target black beetle had she been trying to run the restaurants and she's trying to do it like order and keep the business working and not let people take advantage over you guys loitering and not purchasing products from
a store while using their facilities how do you stop that from happening again and i don't think that's a little girl running the starbucks as best she can and reluctantly calling the police to sign saying saying loitering again he's thinking about using loitering laws against black people yes there are people that have a literate and distances yes there are folks out of order some of them a black but i've worked with a lot of white drunks in my day and they don't get handle quite the same way this is a fact i'm a going to last october or early a rally and play another slowly than men and then five women together play very slowly and the entire culture is waiting for the fact that i would like has nothing to do with it it's the fact that they are lol as along as people pretend that injustice and mistreatment of people is ok as long as it does not impact yeah that is the problem with the majority it they lack an understanding that it can be us today and it could be them. now this is where i ask myself the question at what
point do you treat black people like ordinary people and subject them to ordinary rules of society at what point do you stop taking every incident as racism and start evaluating them as human beings and how they're reacting that's my question. now is a nice bit of journalism american broadcaster n.b.c. has joined the dots and discover that artie's online series in case you missed it is in fact linked to r.t. and expose a article than the journalist say they looked at the registration date of the show's website and they cross-checked to the get the registration for a week of the say than that trouble if i just checked out our site r.t. dot com clicked on shows they would have seen it right at the top in response to n.b.c.'s scoop the show has taken view is behind the scenes than to blow the lid off the connection to us. so here we are first look officers although there is
a slight smell in the air but vodka and caviar. were in so it was probably a spy keep an eye on it. but first glance it looks like any other office but take a look below the surface and something starts to seem off we spoke to i see why in my eyes members of staff so tell me what's it like working for someone connected to r.t. . i always loved the game show t t fruitiness at school. you could get on scully right but that was that was on the sky channel r.t.l. this is this is r.t. this is this is funded by russia we're talking about well what you mean r.t. is is funded by russia. well for the russians well. yeah i mean if your parents is mainly just one is stuff over to poly and things like that to be honest i've never really had so much freedom at work no one tells you how to answer of
over and i'm just really happy but do you work alone i mean i do not you know really something i like to talk about. sure i have total freedom to study looked at as long as it takes to move to for example sort of it's fantastic for feel. there's a limited supply. on a good collection of approve reports from the. morgue. and i've just heard that the host of the show polly boyko has just arrived at work so let's see if we can get a word with her go. his books are high you are aware that i see why my is funded by the russian state through us he wants us. all. yeah hi yeah yeah i got the email yeah. i forgot to take this from site. so there we have it i see links to r.t.
you'd have to be pretty special to think it was a secret. check of the show online on our site dot com coming up our u.s. authorities have moved into a russian diplomatic compound after envoys they have been expelled has caused a lot of trouble we'll tell you about it are more ninety seconds away. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way he's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star and the huge amount of pressure you have to go i mean eight percent of the beach but probably with you and you go over great britain you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get down there we go.
alone. and i'm really happy to join the fall of two thousand and three in the world cup in russia. the special one was also appreciated me to just say the radio p.r.t. teams latest edition make it up as we go. join me every thursday on the alex salmond field and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. again saw the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman launched a withering attack on u.s. authorities after inspectors entered the russian consulate in seattle following its closure choose. by to sing us that i make act as while the american agents have
made a hostile takeover i have no other words for it even though yes authorities banned the work of the russian mission in seattle it doesn't mean that we have no property rights or us authorities have no documents that show their actions to be legally sound it was just a political decision. security personnel reportedly broke the locks to gain access to the building and carry out checks wednesday the compound is now being patrolled by the police u.s. official to cite it to close the facility and expel sixty of moscow's diplomats following the poisoning of the former double agent surrogate script his daughter in the u.k. last month the u.s. state department says that the building no longer enjoyed quote any privileges or immunities and that it's inspectors actions were fully in line with the vienna convention unconscious and relations we discuss the inspection with a former greek ambassador he echoed russia also questioning the legality of this move now even when you bring to the relations in case of war the
countries that leaves usually leave the consulate to the responsibility of a third state. still what is happening now is totally legally what's been done but i hope that russia does not retaliate because if we start rebel you eating only illegal activities there is no end to the international law it's no longer being implemented we saw that in syria and we saw the attacks what happened there so it's a it's a general mo there's of humanity i can say. for one controversy to another there's more controversy brewing over the imminent release of an american prisoner who spent more than four decades behind bars for the murder of three policeman and bell is set to walk free on friday but new york's police union has been making a desperate last ditch attempt to keep him locked up caleb maupin has got the story . herman bell natori is for being a cop killer and
a member of the black liberation army will soon become a free man after spending nearly fifty years behind bars for shooting policeman dead now the new york parole board's decision even had the support of a son of one of the slain officers it seems that individuals with no knowledge of ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policemen's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and they guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand letters urging them not to free herman bell despite his record as
a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where there should be used to do your government is trying their back on the police officers i can absolutely picture now one. about there not wanting six
hundred thousand plus letters being sent to the parole board to eb requesting this man's parole be denied manipulation a square that you know i mean this very tragic incident he actually three people put parole is what it is you know we have murder rape is awesome this people to get paroled every single day and hell bent on if you kill a cop they want you just right and jail is supposed to reform people now cops like to talk about the perilous situations they put themselves in and the public that they serve in order to do that but this incident will leave some in new york questioning their integrity a little oppen artsy new york honest international is demanding that the ukraine government investigate an attack on a roma gypsy camp in the capital kiev. last week a nationalist group destroyed the children reportedly injured in the incident people
fled while the tents and other belongings were burnt the attackers also partly used to gas and reportedly guns currently no one can be sure that they want become the next week to swarm up radicals they shoot themselves with mattresses and caring for the public but actually they're terrorizing ordinary people place in kiev say they were no reports of incidents of violence though that the fuzz were part of a cleanup operation as they described it a political commentator we spoke to thinks that nationalists in ukraine of the government support. i suppose that on the local level some policemen of the world try to prevent open violence but when the government and the parliament officially praise and glory finances how can expect anything else and i said actually it's not they first came to jews is very bonhoeffer said but there they came to others when they came to me it was too late i mean people in the west
should not be silent about it meantime authorities in another city in ukraine are voting to painting contest to mark the creation of a nazi division in that country during the second world war teenagers are being asked to draw something linked to ukrainians who volunteered for the nazi unit and seems as a cash prize for the best one of the door asking again says the rise of nationalism is not confined to ukraine either may have many places in europe kind of see in their own radical. views are becoming more and more popular and this is a result of the whole crisis which was caused by immigration european union cannot provide an answer and this atmosphere of certain despair today cause us some right wing radical groups to succeed in certain places. final story for this n l g b t group has dropped american political journalist joy reid from its awards list the
move comes after a scandal surrounding alleged homophobic posts on reid's blog in which for example she reportedly said she was disgusted by almost sexual scenes in movies she did apologize in december for those comments but more recent posts have swung the group to finally rescind the nomination. i regret the way i addressed the complex issue of the cause and speculation on the show i mean with a mocking tone and. i hope that whoever dropped to the side recognizes the being forced to me to my family and that i care deeply about she lied about it she claims she never wrote
those blog posts in the first place someone else did she said she had a sinister insurance perhaps and. when we reviewed the archives we found nothing to indicate tampering or hacking of the way back machine versions. a lever that for kevin knowing as ever for me in the team era mosco thanks so much

to get. interesting always in the long. run thank you. thank. you welcome to the alex salmond show and to the second part of a feature on the influence of scots for the united states of america last week we looked at the contribution of the most famous scots american of all and your current navy business program gets right up to date with the report from this month's tartan day pretty new york alex also meets with more to discuss including the lovely hybrid nickleby of twenty first century and the fabulous alan len from
the very famous norwich club both making their mark on the artistic life of the big apple but first to your messages or tweets i did even. first we hear from eleanor he says brilliant interview with gino francisco and he looking forward to the rest well and he was a fabulous interview with a great passion for all things carnegie i certainly learnt so much from him then to hear from arthur who says another fascinating show an interview brasil here's a photo of my childhood lively and dentist and only later in life did i learn it was there too to andrew carnegie scotts of my generation were taught very little of art or national story and christopher responds by saying used to also my dad was a tent and then his spine green uniform in the one nine hundred sixty s. well lovely wee story and finally from hazel he says congratulations absolutely riveted by the interview in carnegie watching the recording in my pajamas instead of getting on with my day can't be the only scottish child to do you think i'm
chronically when asking my mom for something legendary thank you now back to new york where we find alex joining in the fun in times square. god willing. the day parade which takes place. is one of the highlights of scotland week since its inception twenty years ago celebrate the advent of spread the united states and canada. still colorful displays. on the plate of. those kilts is a choice of not just. for most of. the.
our throughout the whole world early. don't have to be family or tartan is cold and by for cation then i want to get unbiased for kids at three and i'm just checking. and that actually has been medically proven to scottish men are less likely to get testicular cancer and then potentially because they were killed because you get more airflow so if you want to kill your more potent yes if you want a p.g. i to make sure that kills off the b. of a seven stand up and have a geographical origin and quality while up as man very articulate perfect why wearing right now would not classify as a p.j. traditional scotch camarena denim machine made. tandems from india so i
want traditional scottish craftsmanship chops room and ship because i know very few male killed makers so well what then are all my own which is why i'm not on or on my own the more i like them i'm dad's business i'm tucked away on foot so street. drove me crazy hours like literally really upsetting someone could have the real mccoy. i can't drive. so what you're saying is you want the same damn key of authenticity from the help as for example scotch whiskey house the house absolutely because it drives me nuts that you can walk down the royal mile to see a kilt financially in piles of people say traditional kill is real mccoy i want three parameters to be able to call it kill with vishal scotch kill sure we'll meet in scotland and stitched that's why real kilt is otherwise our formal dyad what do you mean not formal diana well. my kilt maker is one kilt maker one
kill. the most kills are made in fact here. so that fact. the lady knows how to put straps on the guy knows how to do the plates but no one person knows how to make a kill or not kill because. the kill think are the someone who sets with yards of fabrics works out to your personal size the fabric that i was going to fetch has one person one kill. eight to twelve hours of work like properly. i want to form but it's just going more and more just mass production fetching properly don't look good. look. but i'm missing things have happened to time i mean you know but when i was alive in the in the seventies if i timed up at a school dance and tough in a been taken to the toilets and probably an has if you go to a school dance at
a wedding or a celebration you know everything buddy. so i mean there's been a transition of topping this time accepted us m i five or was probably a. leader off he was the first guy to an outfit package but you could see what you were getting a price it was the first guy to rentals in the eighty's she was like the first backseat of making the kill again more for everybody now reclaimed by the working classes i'm working class and less ok my kids expensive for their lifetime purchases so if you. want something good you got to be a titan shield and want your kilts. while you become part of my own trade so it's kind of a time share a celt like a jacket you buy a good jacket you can pass on the children so when i got this jock i said to my eight year old you're going to get his jacket thirty years so my kilts one hundred
percent are early so highly you have died as you say helped to popularize that the kill reclaim it for the one class you had knocking on the evolution and all the radical lead. solution of all of the kilts on top of the house as us revolutionists i'm going to know my dream would be i want to be a brand. as for everyone to make kills for people every day you just walk into a shop where the moscow new york london paris and they can buy a kilt and they would know it was authentic was scottish yeah that means calling design a skull and if you don't have a killing you want them on a limb and then you're messing something important in life. you don't like the choices beyond fashion kill. thousands of years old very devious gyptian sort of vikings for brought it to us. every coach or across the world has
bifurcation garments soever be a sarong for to see key african tribal we are so cross less so in a phrase the best days of the kill a stoic come oh gotcha absolutely alex thank you very much and the thank you legend me. from comedian hall for central park i'm on my way dime time to west fourteenth street to meet up paisley buddy alan lind has created an island for the curious and the see if in the state because if you go to new york community the norwood is the place to be. cleared of normal mood and the oasis of conversation comes over our to clear devotee in the middle of new york city where did you get this idea i love that idea of creating space is for creative people a home for the cutie and big melting point of. creative we will from new york
and around the world we have different affiliates but yeah it's just my background fine art so it's to create all my for the q.b. and people have to be cooler because you can end up at dinner here before you don't know or you're stuck in the table and you better get on there's nothing nice to being thrown in to a situation. when it's about you certain next to someone and having a conversation emphasize is obviously human then to change fate a good idea or are you some sort of antidote to the social media twitter revolution no i think we can take both then to the things that i think what i'm saying is we've got members from some of the biggest tech companies their members here because they want someone to come and sit and have a conversation with someone both have to be embraced we cannot be naive about technology but there is that other thing of that we do when i thoroughly communication paracel of communication with people and that's why you need
a physical space you need a big silver you need to sit there and look at someone's eyes and say i hate you or i love you or whatever it is or i'm falling in love with you but right now you can make dating go online but you don't know nothin or the kismet of falling in love there are things that can be the new york and much much the way the feel reverse bliss but is it just a collection of after studying just after but you know i mean is it all is that no it's not just artists because i mean a lot a lot when i was at the royal college of art and in the in the sat two brothers came in and bought our you need to have commerce to be with us are you you're naive if you don't and i know so many great artists who are just not good at the financial side just not with the do you need to have the people ignore that money to make sure you can still carrying being an artist the old days of the one nine
hundred centuries of living and i gather in france lovely but then they die i mean it's all whole thing is the people we admire a lot of the time that bank or different people sylvia plath tortured artist that we love but these are measurable time you've got to accept both sides but this is a very well adored and gather new york. in late myself. and some extraordinary how much of the waltz was for most players know i've got some great here we do something there's a piece right up there that i found in the street and it is the same composition as the francis bacon painting but it was on the street so the whole thing is you know what is guitar i mean even something as different as original as this you must add some inspiration another space another club you thought i do like to do that in new york and i'd like to do it better than special no it's my.
bawly it was stupid to see i took a leap of faith and came to new york and just didn't know what i was doing i had a house and sold it i came across here i went round the streets of new york raising money with the dream of building something unique to new york. just getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos and the commission to me like you know. this is my complicity is going to study hall meeting. with. the only palestinians who gets the most help from its jerusalem counterpart i don't think there's another. under the.
