The Michael Moore film, Canadian Bacon is one of the funniest examples of political satire I’ve ever seen. It was satire. It was never to be true. Now though, we’re living our own, absolutely terrifying version, where, in order to legitimize the role John Kerry and the Obama Administration played in the fascist coup in the Ukraine. It was very much a coup. It was very much a coup which was led by neo-Nazi Ukrainians. But, you won’t read that in here, in the news. Instead, we are treated to a 24/7 news cycle where Vladimir Putin has become Hitler, Stalin, Napoleon, and the Grinch, all rolled into one egomaniac package.
The question is why?
Why are we supporting modern day Nazis?
Why is General Breedlove allowed to get away with acting like a total fool?
Why is John Kerry’s role in the coup being ignored?
Why is no one asking how many NATO planes are violating Russian airspace?
Why is no one asking why the Pentagon does not want Russia to be allowed to upgrade and modernize its military?
Why is no one asking about atrocities the Ukrainians have committed?
Why is no one discussing the fact that Russia’s worst security problem is radical Islam?
Why is Russia not allowed to defend itself?
I’ve given up asking why. We know part of it is about corruption. We know some of the corruption comes out of John Kerry’s office.
The media has become part of this coup, spreading the Administration’s outright lies about Russia. Robert Perry wrote:
“...For instance, on April 6, the New York Times published a human-interest profile of a Ukrainian named Yuri Marchuk who was wounded in clashes around Kiev’s Maidan square in February. You have to read far into the story to learn that Marchuk was a Svoboda leader from Lviv, which – if you did your own research – you would discover is a neo-Nazi stronghold where Ukrainian nationalists hold torch-light parades in honor of Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera.
Without providing that context, the Times does mention that Lviv militants plundered a government weapons depot and dispatched 600 militants a day to do battle in Kiev. Marchuk also described how these well-organized militants, consisting of paramilitary brigades of 100 fighters each, launched the fateful attack against the police on Feb. 20, the battle where Marchuk was wounded and where the death toll suddenly spiked into scores of protesters and about a dozen police.
Marchuk later said he visited his comrades at the occupied City Hall. What the Times doesn’t mention is that City Hall was festooned with Nazi banners and even a Confederate battle flag as a tribute to white supremacy.
The Times touched on the inconvenient truth of the neo-Nazis again on April 12 in an article about the mysterious death of neo-Nazi leader Oleksandr Muzychko, who was killed during a shootout with police on March 24. The article quoted a local Right Sektor leader, Roman Koval, explaining the crucial role of his organization in carrying out the anti-Yanukovych coup.
Only a few stalwart journalists dare to even question the propaganda being shoveled here in the US and the UK when it comes to so-called Russian Aggression. Two of them are Robert Perry, and John Pilger, who wrote:
“…The suppression of the truth about Ukraine is one of the most complete news blackouts I can remember. The biggest Western military build-up in the Caucasus and eastern Europe since world war two is blacked out. Washington’s secret aid to Kiev and its neo-Nazi brigades responsible for war crimes against the population of eastern Ukraine is blacked out. Evidence that contradicts propaganda that Russia was responsible for the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner is blacked out.
And again, supposedly liberal media are the censors. Citing no facts, no evidence, one journalist identified a pro-Russian leader in Ukraine as the man who shot down the airliner. This man, he wrote, was known as The Demon. He was a scary man who frightened the journalist. That was the evidence.
Many in the western media haves worked hard to present the ethnic Russian population of Ukraine as outsiders in their own country, almost never as Ukrainians seeking a federation within Ukraine and as Ukrainian citizens resisting a foreign-orchestrated coup against their elected government.
What the Russian president has to say is of no consequence; he is a pantomime villain who can be abused with impunity. An American general who heads Nato and is straight out of Dr. Strangelove – one General Breedlove – routinely claims Russian invasions without a shred of visual evidence. His impersonation of Stanley Kubrick’s General Jack D. Ripper is pitch perfect….”
We are slouching toward World War III. This time, the United States is the aggressor and the villain. We’re the bad guys. I don’t know about you, but I find it terribly humiliating, and just plain wrong.
