This Is What Ethnic Cleansing Looks Like (After the Cleansing)
(NOTE: The “terrorists” are all gone. Does that make you feel safer?)
(NOTE: These “terrorists” haven’t left yet. Does that frighten you?)
Why aren’t we seeing these “victories,” on our TV nightly news? Let’s celebrate “our” “victories.”
After all, this is the new nazi Amerika, doing our thing. But, who, then, are “we”? And who are “they”?
JOHN KERRY made it clear (“at the Atlantic Council’s ‘Toward a Europe Whole and Free’ Conference,” 29 April 2014):
“The Russians have a clear choice: Leave Ukraine in peace and work with us together to create a strong Ukraine, a Ukraine that is not a pawn, pulled and tugged at between East and West, but a Ukraine that could be a bridge to both, with the ability to have an open trading mechanism on all degrees, 360 around Ukraine. And whatever path they choose, I can guarantee this: The United States and our allies will stand together in support of Ukraine.”
SO: that’s what this is all about? Really? Well, anyway, that statement by our Secretary of State got covered in the Washington Post, so it must be authentically newsworthy. After all: it made clear who “our” “enemy” is. It’s those “terrorists.”
The rest of these news stories? They’re not newsworthy at all — at least not in this country, according to the aristocrats who make the ultimate editorial decisions on such matters. That’s why we don’t get to see that end of this war on our TVs.
Just too boring, perhaps. Not like a speech by John Kerry. Or Barack Obama. Or John McCain.
Isn’t propaganda thrilling! It’s so patriotic!
We’ll win this thing!
