And just when you thought things couldn’t get weirder, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad quoted Tupac Shakur in this tweet on the death of George Floyd:
The scheme of the world powers is to cause disunity in order to keep all societies under control. The killing of #GeorgeFloyd was deeply disturbing & upsetting & is the result of the current world order which we all must unite against.

This is literally the kind of thing Twitter should be worried about from a foreign power in an election year:
There's a long history of foreign powers trying to use racial tension in America to their own ends. Goes back to, at minimum, the KGB and the Civil Rights Movement. One of the reasons Dr. King was so great, as it was, his non-violent movement was seen as unhelpful to Soviet ends. https://t.co/VLtk3k0zFw
