28 March 2014. “The Nation” Libels Cossacks… In the Name of Supporting the Pro-Oligarch Ukrainian Junta

00 Cossack Christmas in Volgograd 02. 14.01.14

On the one hand, you have the Cossacks, trusty and honest people… on the other, you have neoliberal neocon cheerleaders… I KNOW which side that I’m on! I’m NOT alone either!

______________________________

The Nation is schizophrenic. On one side, you have Stephen Cohen pleading for sanity in re Russia. On the other, you have neoliberal nutters (such as Bob Dreyfuss) repeating all of Langley’s lies. This is a prime example. Note how this pro-Western lickspittle attacks the Cossacks… some of the most decent people in the Rodina. Let’s not be coy. Langley uses Western journalists as human intel assets. That’s what they’re doing in the Ukraine, besides playing along with Langley’s provocations. Note well how they lie by omission. Not a single Western “journalist” reported that 15,000 of the 18,000 Ukrainian servicemen in the Crimea rallied to Russia, and that only 3,000 opted for repatriation to the Ukraine. Not one Western “journalist” reported that pensioners in the Crimea are getting a 250 percent raise in real pensions, whilst those in the Ukraine are getting theirs slashed by 50 percent. Not one Western “journalist” reported on the Western cyber-attacks on Russia on the day of the referendum (the West failed, Russian cyber-counterattacks put NATO offline for hours… those guys at Kaspersky ZAO know their stuff). In short, the Western “journalists” are whores and liars of the worst possible untrustworthy sort. The Cossacks are honourable and upright. I’d trust them with my life in an instant… I’d not trust a Western “journalist’s” word on the sun rising in the east… they’re that much running dogs for the neoliberal Establishment.

If you attack and libel the Cossacks, you’re my enemy, and that’s that…

There’s this gross wisdom among Teapublicans that they’re always just one candidate away from winning the big one, which is a belief hardwired by their inert ideological purity [it’s interesting to note how these opponents of “political correctness” embody the early-20th-century meaning of the term. Mirabile dictu!: editor]. Their imagined saviour is embodied in the mindset of conservative consciousness… Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity… a flag-bearing trio of virtuous rightwing demagoguery.

There’s an interesting fact about these three great paladins of “patriotism”… all three REFUSED TO SERVE IN THE FORCES, but they beat the war-drums constantly. It’s interesting to note how TPers lionise such cowards. After all, they’re always telling us how patriotic and self-sacrificial they are… it’s another lovely story murdered by ugly reality.

However, don’t argue with TPers… it won’t do any earthly (or heavenly) good, it won’t help them to see to the truth, and (above all) they enjoy fighting! That’s why I stopped corresponding with Whiteford… it wasn’t doing either of us any good; all that he was doing was browbeating me to agree to his loony-tunes rightie nonsense. Step up to that booth, mark your ballot, and put in the box! That’s the only language these creepo supremos understand. Jim DeMint saw the meaning in the tealeaves and left the Senate. What does he know that we don’t?
