Top Russian Judge: US ‘Exceptionalism’ Rhetoric is Hitlerian

Russian Constitutional Court Chairman Valery Zorkin pointed out that US exceptionalism rhetoric is the same as rhetoric used by the Nazis, and that it also exemplifies Orwell’s observation that certain people and groups proclaim themselves to be ‘more equal’ than others.  Zorkin noted that exceptionalism rhetoric is an:

“…almost exact copy of leading politicians and propaganda specialists of the Third Reich, including Adolph Hitler… In essence, Obama is using the exact same thing that Nazi bosses said about the German exceptionalism when they started the world war,” he added.

According to Zorkin, the same applies to the US doctrines on development of mass media and electronic communications – the US authorities see their goal as establishing absolute global domination of their country in the global information space. This idea also constantly appears in Obama’s public speeches.

Obama says that Americans and the USA are an exceptional people and an exceptional state and thus they can pretend for much more than any other people or state. In other words, he follows the plot of Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ dystopia and, while formally not rejecting the principle of equality of sovereign states and peoples, fixed by the UN Charter, he still declares that Americans and America are ‘more equal’ than any other country and the rest of the planet’s population,” RIA Novosti quoted the judge as saying.

Zorkin also told his colleague at the forum that he considered such approach to be a blatant violation of international legal norms.

    Before Wall Street took over control of the American economy and our government in the 1890s and started Wall Street’s usurped government and economy on the road to empire, Americans prided ourselves on being “exceptional” as a democracy and as an egalitarian society, and until Wall Street’s criminal financiers reorganized and redistributed the wealth of America to a considerable extent our country was egalitarian. In 1867 the wealthiest 2% of Americans owned 5% of the wealth. By 1895 they owned 60% and today they own over 70%. America had problems to deal with and flaws to correct before the criminals of Wall Street took over but in many ways it was “exceptional” and people all over the world realized it. But instead of trying to establish its “exceptional” character by bullying and murder and selling weapons and hate and tyranny to the entire world, America expressed its exceptional nature by EXAMPLE. Today America sets the world a terrible example. For proof of this see Wilkinson & Pickett’s brilliant book, The Spirit Level. We need to take back America from the financial criminal traitors of Wall Street who have betrayed our country into the hands of an oligarchy comprising one person in one thousand, 160,000 families among 320 million of us. Our Constitution provides us with the means, but the means won’t work as long as our Constitutional processes are corrupted by the phony Two Party system operated by those same oligarchic criminals and their big money. It’s time for all of us to take thought how we can change America back into America again before these criminal traitors destroy it entirely and provoke the rest of the world with their bullying until the world finally crushes their brutal, tyrannical, criminal regime.

    Edward Cayce, ““[Through Russia], comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what
    is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism — no! But freedom — freedom!
    That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born
    there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia
    comes again the hope of the world.”

    Putin’s government thinks its exceptional in shutting down all internal dissent to Putin’s government. The Middle East governments think they are exceptional and shut down all internal dissent. China too. It is not just the US government that thinks its exceptional, and silencing internal dissent is a very grave affront to justice.

      No doubt. However, if we are trying to be honest, we have to point out that most dissident writers, thinkers, philosophers who are murdered in the world are murdered by US-led Western fundamentalists, as noted in previous reports, which you can check.
