Without a doubt, the political landscape in America has become such a surreal wasteland of utter deceit and conspiracy that should a preponderance of citizens ever become aware of its breadth and depth, we will collectively suffer a paroxysm of shame as well as horror in having been so completely duped for so many years by so many whom we trusted.
Since December, the European press has regularly reported on the fact that the Obama administration and congressional emissaries have lent support both moral and economic to factions that later became the revolutionary government in Ukraine. These factions, which fomented the uprisings leading to the flight of President Viktor Yanukovych late last month, are essentially Nazis.
In mid-December of 2013, Sen. John McCain traveled to Kiev and visited with members of the Svoboda Party, an ultra-nationalist, anti-Semitic group that is aligned with other European nationalistic parties; initially, they were called the Social National Party of Ukraine. Their symbol is a swastika-style logo. Since 2010, the Svoboda party has garnered a healthy following, winning their first parliamentary seats and taking just over 10 percent of the vote to become Ukraine’s fourth-biggest party.
I believe that the sole reason the European press feels safe in reporting these things is twofold. One is distance: The issue deals with the American government, rather than European governments. Two, their reporting is typically replete with references to the Svoboda Party and other Ukrainian ultra-nationalists as “far-right,” a term that is accurate with respect to the 20th-century European political model, but inaccurate with respect to the present one. It is convenient, however, in demonizing conservatives, particularly American conservatives – so the “far-right” appellation works for them, as well as the American press in other areas.
