Georgian-American business executive Irakly Kaveladze is suing Berkeley professor emeritus George Lakoff for claiming on MSNBC that he was a "major person who has been responsible for money laundering from Russia and other post-Soviet countries."
Kaveladze was caught up in a money laundering investigation in 2000 but was never convicted of a crime. Kaveladze denied any wrongdoing at the time and said the investigation was a "witch hunt."
LOS ANGELES — Irakly "Ike" Kaveladze, the so-called “eighth man” at a controversial 2016 meeting between top associates of President Donald Trump and a politically connected Russian lawyer, has sued a California linguist for criticizing him on a cable television show this month.He sued him "for criticizing him."
Top notch reporting there, Politico.
In his complaint, Kaveladze accuses George Lakoff of libel and slander for comments he made in an MSNBC interview with Chuck Todd, in which Lakoff called Kaveladze “the major person who has been responsible for money laundering from Russia and other post-Soviet countries.”Lying about people on television with impunity is not a "right" guaranteed by the First Amendment. Our nation has libel laws and they're being applied by juries more than ever.
In his lawsuit, Kaveladze said Lakoff’s statements have caused “immense personal and professional damages to Kaveladze.” He also asks for punitive damages, claiming Lakoff’s statements were malicious.Here's Lakoff's appearance on MSNBC, his money laundering comments are after the 5 minute mark:
You can see from Lakoff's Wikipedia page he's a cultural marxist who pushes BS straight out of the Frankfurt School.
All their ideas revolved around psychoanalyzing normal Americans as though they're somehow sick in the head because they hold traditional values and don't want their society to fall to a Bolshevik revolution. On the other hand, liberal stooges who hate their parents and want to see everything their ancestors created destroyed in furtherance of their Bolshevik revolution are the peak of mental health.
Here's a sampling:
Lakoff has publicly expressed both ideas about the conceptual structures that he views as central to understanding the political process, and some of his particular political views. He almost always discusses the latter in terms of the former.You're an evil fascist if you want to preserve your society and not let cultural marxists and their liberal stooges tear it down. That's what all these cultural marxists' fake philosophies boil down to.
"If I'm not allowed to lie about people with impunity to further my political aims, I'm being oppressed and the First Amendment is being undermined."
It'll be quite interesting to see how this case plays out.
