‘Hiring flat-Earther to teach geography’: Russiagater to lecture on ‘hybrid warfare‘ at Georgetown An “information warfare expert” spending her days spinning anti-Russian rhetoric on Twitter has now gotten the chance to do so in the name of ‘education‘ – teaching a course on “hybrid warfare” at Georgetown University.
Molly McKew, known for claiming that the Russian nuclear doctrine allows for “nuking its own people” (it doesn‘t) and peddling the so-called “Gerasimov doctrine” of hybrid warfare (it doesn‘t exist), among other things, will now be passing on her ideas to the students of one of America‘s most prestigious schools – the Georgetown University.
The lists almost everything the US establishment and media have accused Russia of in recent years: “The cyberattack against Estonia in 2007, the invasion of Georgia in 2008, the annexation of Crimea in 2014. Bots, trolls, and information operations,” all part of “the Kremlin‘s new way of war” that “targets our societies and citizens.”
McKew stands out even among the crowd of “experts” who‘ve made it their livelihood to find Russian hybrid warfare around every corner. In her blue-ticked Twitter feed dedicated almost entirely to the evilness of Putin, she has linked Kremlin to the whistleblower-turned-transgender-activist , the deadly violence at the August 2017 , and , to “trolls posing as gay men trying to falsely link LGBT acceptance to pedophilia.”
Enshrining McKew‘s “expertise” in a Georgetown course has about as much to do with academia as “hiring a flat-Earther to teach in a geography department,” another Georgetown academic points out.
While McKew was not the inventor of the “Gerasimov doctrine”, she was one of its heaviest peddlers, ever since her alarmist 2017 in Politico. The “doctrine” , unlike McKew‘s status as a “Russia expert.”
Indeed, she has no problem with personal attacks, like against “stinking” Julian Assange (who is, it goes without saying, “a front for Russian intelligence”).
She has been registered as a foreign agent lobbying on behalf of Georgia (where she was an advisor to the very anti-Russian President Mikhail Saakashvili) and Moldova.
Even media voices with less-than-favorable (but more level-headed) views of Putin‘s Russia are wary of McKew‘s “expert opinion”, like , who emigrated from Russia after the 2014 “annexation” of Crimea, or , an LGBT rights activist and outspoken critic of Putin.
McKew has dismissed Gessen‘s writings – because Gessen is Russian, of course.
