battle to allow transgender athletes to compete an issue we put up with it but. this is just a still story to. propagate the view that this woman or anything over all the women don't want to see transmission due to. transfer coincidence. good afternoon just gone 2 o'clock in moscow you're watching r.t. international now france's most famous general is waging wars beyond the grave as the country pulls out all the stops to celebrate 200 years since napoleon's death debate is now raging about whether it's actually high time to cancel the emperor seen by many has a genocidal tyrant who killed millions his fans do you hail him as the nation's
7:02 am
greatest at the heroic charlotte n.c. enters the fray in paris. napoleon bonaparte it's a name that everyone you know is a french emperor our whole crew of nations 200 years after his death and his ideals still shape france but was napoleon a hero or a villain. a bit of both because he did good things he did a lot for the evolution of france but he also destroyed countries during his conquests in fact so it is a bit of both. yeah bit of both so i would say he did a lot for france but obviously he made mistakes too from a foreign policy point of view this is one detail his career in fact he invented everything with the civil code so indeed like all great man he did things that are good and others that are bad and i think he did more good than bad for me is to a hero in the 121st century napoleon's legacy seems to be on shaky ground
7:03 am
critics have described the french leader as a racist sexist desperate and there is plenty of evidence to show that napoleon wouldn't cut the mustard in today's world for the 1st time in history we systematically used a racial criteria for gassing exterminating a civil population in a manner that was the most economical most rational at the end there were several 1000 dead maybe some tens of thousands of civilians dead murdered in this way simply because of the color of their skin because of the fact that the polian had reintroduced slavery in the main french colony. despite the mounting case against new polian events all planned in france and belgium to mark the anniversary of his death there is no question of allowing this anniversary to be stolen from us people know perfectly well that he reestablished slavery but you can't reduce him to that no other figure has marked history like him well some former french presidents have
7:04 am
shied away from camembert. orating napoleon president mark korn will know what he's due to lay a wreath at napoleon's to me in paris and to make an address to mark the anniversary krentz is in fact the only country in the world where slavery was as we established after it's was abolished nobody has ever since such a thing and i were president the president of a so called country dimon rights would like to celebrate somebody who was associated with so many crimes that is acceptable is a day of shame mr merkel is not only making. mistakes but also but it's a good one that's going to be. 'd even for the elections he also says that it's ludicrous that france continues to celebrate a loser but it was
7:05 am
a disaster. because even if you don't care about black people in the corridors even if you do that if you don't care about your. friends who lost 1000000 soldiers. which is a not for nothing. because of the debt of the day he lost everything for example friends all of. which was at this time 20 percent of the united states that's was lost because of luck with your friends have made it into an ocean like cision restaurant or that was 'd lost even a racist word lessness person should say he's a boozer so does that change people's opinion of napoleon also get weak in these cases yes because in a way he helped france with certain things but it cost a lot of freedom and lot of 2nd pfizer to human level to them also it's obviously his big mistake maybe to have reestablished slavery but also he brought
7:06 am
a lot to france who though his initiatives especially at all levels of administration and then he may have helped make some progress in certain countries maybe. what we heard from the university history lecture john what can about this and he claims that many of the are you seeking to cancel the emperor or actually nor certain values they have in common. the fact is that he is a product of the french revolution and so the left if you like which would want to cancel him and dethrone him for being a racist or whatever. unfortunately is in a rather paradoxical position because of course the left supports the french revolution of which napoleon is a product domestically it is undeniable that his influence is immense everybody knows that the napoleonic code is still more or less in force that he invented or at least codify all kinds of other things including the administrative structure of france and obviously influence the army and the school system and so on and so on
7:07 am
so yes he was a loser on the on the international stage because he was defeated. but he in a way he's not a loser really i would say domestically and on the contrary his his influence for good or ill is undeniable throughout the centuries. now the new york governor andrew cuomo is in the news again this time for suggesting that unvaccinated people could kill their relatives that after he himself was accused of allowing kovac to spreading care homes with the state's high death toll now revealed maybe you will get a long haul syndrome that we're not really sure what it is yet but a lingering consequence of cold. or maybe you go home and get your grandmother and wind up killing your grandmother that is if you would run mother survive comas nursing home do you think the moment after he said that he was internally
7:08 am
regressing setting himself up like that or is he just clueless i'll never forgive this man for making my friend die alone in a nursing home don't like wrong get me a grandmother. well in march 2020 cuomo did order nursing homes to accept positive patients because local hospitals were overwhelmed critics say that that decision though increased the death toll among residents new york state is one of the highest coded mortality rates in the u.s. with care home deaths at around 14000 governors also been accused of hiding the true figures however he has repeatedly insisted that he won't resign as he does not see the miscount as a cover up. to 3320 year he died in hospital died. they don't. want tracy elven an advocate for those in homes and whose father did die in a care facility in long island thinks that quote most comments do ignore the
7:09 am
reality of the situation. our seniors trusted us to protect them and what do we can we get a governor that failed us that's harry again and makes these tone deaf remarks that continues to twist denies that he placed in the hearts of us the grieving family members we had our leaders in held the arm of the head of the and i each out in february telling us citizens that we knew that it was most deadly to the elderly back in february so when you sign an executive order that lets a virus that is known to be the most evil elderly people even with elderly people i don't want to sound dramatic but that sounds a lot like murder it's unique and we need to know why he did it was there a monetary reason that he did it all of this needs to be investigated and every time we think he might get away with it he opens his mouth and he buries and simple little bit deeper the fact that we have over 15000 angels on our side to never
7:10 am
discount. that transgender females can keep playing women sports in the u.s. state of kansas after the state senate failed to stop the governor thing towing their bill which banned them from taking part of the bill to target biological males taking part in women's sports but it didn't stop those born female from participating in men's kansas governor laura kelly explained the veto. this legislation sends a devastating message that kansas is not welcome until all children and their families including those who are transgender equality has a higher risk of bullying discrimination and suicide kansas is an inclusive state and our laws defacto values this law doesn't do that since republicans couldn't stop abortions they're on to transgender rights big win for the family and those athletes i'm annoyed by this they have grown up as men head there is transferred
7:11 am
physical ability not a level playing field it's really stupid counselors should frank very governor. for saving them from the stupid well the decision does come as 5 states bring such bans into law and $34.00 others are considering it we talked to lawyer stephanie hayden and also radio sports host alan moore about whether the issue is a dog whistle for transphobia and who should decide if such athletes participate what with the rights of women under its own gender. new york times a couple sports on our radio show we spoke with female athletes interviewed they have concerns for day themselves feel this is arguments going on the board their heads will hear it stay with you have to sort for there is a dangerous well there's a loop who will take advantage of this is ignorance of good will of a lot of the society will reduce a situation where there are you know deadly consequences what this is a ballot in my view is used in the argument about access to sport transgender woman
7:12 am
and bells as a job whistle for transfer to be at lest the real here does not sick here of what people call biological man i would say trans women killing or to join females or as a way of securing metals that they otherwise would not secure or if they were competing against biological men in the early sports like dog changes you know this does not transfer already in this and i got into it once the green transco leader who is a dog was noticing that my argument saying there well i don't want to see a man whose transition due to female that's a green and placed my daughter in the ring that's not transfer all the russias common sense this is just a scare story which is brought town waltz again too. propagate the
7:13 am
view that trans women are anything call the book of the women you know women sports of women's sports and i'm not saying that it's appropriate in every sport that somebody who was formally male should be allowed to compete in some spots that would be ridiculous however if the governing body office or take the view that trans women trans girls can compete safely and thoroughly then guys are lots of that if we look at the rules who are bigger rebroadcasts probably got in the states it's not our child's issue mero who compiz other high schools and universities have to let our people who present themselves or to who approve feel themselves cream of the day should be given the same rights and be american be if you're a sports is still in the news right now and a lot bigger that's flying into lesser in the states and in the senate floor under the golden rule in the end. it is so so messy and so dangerous politics should be
7:14 am
kept down to sports it is not the business in my opinion of a state legislature to stop passing legislation restricting our express to sport for any group in money feeling the way the should be tempered with is that each individual sports violates governing bodies should make a decision on what is best for the sport the some sports for example where it can be argued that the so-called biological differences are not going to make a difference to how severe their server where a run of the want of holes or there will be a separate category to be male female your next category are the have to caucus use solutions that are. looking for sporting going to view or forcing a lot of people who know about or no interest in sport want to get involved in it because it suits their in general and just is not going. we're really going after
7:15 am

7:18 am
the dares thinks. we dare to ask. how should we interpret the recent f.b.i. raid on the home of former trump lawyer rudy giuliani a legitimate investigation into wrongdoing or a strong and very public political warning is trump his former circle and supporters the real target can the average citizen trust the f.b.i. .
7:19 am
or if. her again now the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has missed his chance to form a new coalition government the deadline expired at midnight on tuesday when his failure to reach an agreement could push easily could party into opposition for the 1st time in well over a decade israel has been in political deadlock for the past 2 years and during this time for parliamentary elections have failed to produce a stable government despite reaching out to rivals including the leader of a small islamist arab party netanyahu was unable to seal the deal within the 4 week window granted by the country's president well our sister channel r.t. arabic to speak to the former israeli prime minister olmert and he says that netanyahu is nearing the end of his career. that material speaks to everyone goes well when you know he's in a very very bad situation he is at the very end of his career he's going to be
7:20 am
kicked out from the government he's not going to be the next very minister of israel that a sailor really 2 years ago and i was right in our last interview i told you he will not win any elections when you didn't win the elections so you was manipulating were we went to 4 different election campaigns in 2 years because netanyahu couldn't win the elections and therefore when you don't win the elections when you are in better shape when you have troubles when you have to stand in court when you have political rivals from all sides what is left for you to do is to yell to shout to to show off. now an elementary school principal is under investigation in florida after spanking a 6 year old the instant does raise questions about why such punishments do continue in a country that prides itself as being a beacon of democracy with more on the story his kalamata. now you would think that
7:21 am
teachers beating their students in order to keep them in line is a thing of the past and certainly doesn't happen nowadays well if you think that you are wrong a recent incident in florida caught on video sparked outrage here's what happened to a 6 year old girl who allegedly damaged a school computer and there is disturbing video this morning of a school principal hitting a 6 year old student with a wooden paddle now the video was recorded by her mother she came to the school in order to pay a fine for the damage to property now the mother did not speak english and feared for her immigration status so rather than intervene she discreetly took out her phone and recorded how the principals bank her daughter with the help of another staff member nobody would have believed me i stick my doing so old parents can realize what's happening in the school now the official rules of county school don't permit for students to be hit but apparently it does happen however many
7:22 am
counties throughout florida do have official policies permitting the use of corporal punishment elementary school principals are now able to paddle misbehaving students in marion county and many people at our morning news meeting wondered could be a area schools the next piece of video showing 2 adults at an elementary school in georgia prepared to paddle a 5 year old child it's perfectly legal in that state and $88.00 other states 19 us states maintain laws allowing corporal punishment in public schools and almost every state keeps it legal in private schools now some say this is just part of the religious and traditional cultures of some regions throughout the united states but others say this is an outdated authoritarian practice pretty much child abuse and it has no place in modern education point using and giving indications to only children who would employ reduces the amount of indication and. mind set that a child could have while learning so i would say since that's the point of going to school been. we're dealing with
7:23 am
a wooden board is counterproductive to all children having the possibility to excel in schools will be poor school or very well preschool children do better when they feel safe people across the country have very strong opinions about this disciplinary practice i feel like that's a something that a parent should do like that kind of discipline should come from parents and teachers. just shouldn't be allowed to do that it's on their job description i will definitely make sure that those people go to jail because. i don't think they can tell you this is the answer for hunnish man i think he said there were a lot of ways to. make sure that the kids were there and the fact that beating children as a routine form of punishment in schools across the country certainly flies in the face of the image the united states has constructed for itself around the world the very sad thing about it is that we mean there are historical reasons i'll put it
7:24 am
like that for why re still having it but i think one of the saddest things about it is that there are over 2 dozen in other nations that will not be and this practice until we so that type of violence is going on in our schools and there's no science that proves that this helps and as a matter of fact the top schools in our nation frown upon the use of the wooden board so that kind of tells us something right there about its necessity. that russia has branded france's summoning of its ambassador to paris is an e.u. coordinated political stunt does come off to moscow place sanctions on 8 you citizens and restrictions on diplomatic missions in russia. in our opinion the fact that the russian ambassador to france was summoned to the country's foreign ministry is clearly part of a political stunt coordinated by you member states and mostly repeats what was said to russia's representative to the you or the blog previously levied sanctions
7:25 am
against russia and some member states expelled diplomats over the jailing of alexina valley russia has placed a travel ban on top e.u. officials in retaliation a move the president branded groundless moscow has stressed though the move was an act of protest adding it could be reversed at any moment we have repeatedly made it clear that it wasn't asked for started this war sanctions but it's any moment we have only to walk our part of the path to these pointless confrontation in which there will not and cannot be any winners hostile policy towards russia has been pursued by only a small group of individual countries to their own detriment political commentator does believe he is simply following the example set by the united states. i mean the russians are gorgeous in that started the sanctions regime and the sanctions game so i would see their delusions of change you must know that and the europeans must know that to my holy day hopkins is that they're terribly following
