Western Politicians Are Murderers
Western Politicians Are Murderers
Breaking news! International outrage! Someone spraypainted a politician’s office with a message (oh my God, what did it say?!) …condemning genocide and the politician for actively enabling it. Of course, Western politicians and their obedient media condemn the graffiti, not the genocide. They have inexplicably “perfected” their faux outrage routines as the public – that is either too lazy, stupid or callous to realize it – soaks up their crocodile tears and turns a blind eye to mass murder committed by the supposed human rights “defenders”. For the sake of clarity, which is probably necessary for most in the Western public, Israel is committing genocide in Palestine.
Western Journalists Are Accessories to Murder
Western Journalists Are Accessories to Murder
How are Western TV news anchors able to sit at their desks, with a straight face and with no remorse, and broadcast news that enables rampant human rights violations and glorifies mass murder? Are they evil, selfish or just plain stupid? When they report news of a country carpet-bombing civilians, with almost half of the slaughtered being children, the next words that come out of the journalist's mouth cannot be that the country committing genocide "has the right to defend itself". Nobody is that stupid.
Canada's Hypocrisy and Enabling of Nazism on Full Display
Canada's Hypocrisy and Enabling of Nazism on Full Display
Published in The Hill Times, Canada’s leading newspaper for political news and analysis — But what happens when Canada enables current Nazi attacks on an ethnic group? As per Canadian foreign policy, it depends on the ethnic group, followed by Canadian politicians turning to their American bosses to determine their public reaction and, even more importantly, their continued action. For decades, Canada has declared a specific ethnic group expendable and has notoriously pursued a policy aimed at its eradication. That group is Macedonians.
The West Always Intended to Doom Macedonia’s Independence
The West Always Intended to Doom Macedonia’s Independence
There is a foolish perception amongst politicians, academics and journalists throughout the West and beyond, which has persisted for more than three decades — and that is that Macedonia will one day join the European Union if “such and such” is done beforehand.
US Senator Chris Murphy, Enemy of the Macedonian State​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
US Senator Chris Murphy, Enemy of the Macedonian State​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Op-ed by MHRMI President Bill Nicholov (with the title US Politicians Don’t Have the Right to Dictate Macedonia’s Future) published in Truthout, an influential US nonprofit news organization — In May, Senator Chris Murphy tapped into the endless flow of U.S. taxpayer dollars to fly to the Western Balkans, with a stop in the Republic of Macedonia to implore (read: threaten) Macedonians to adopt a “simple constitutional amendment” in order to “stay on the path to join the European Union.” But why does a senator from Connecticut care if Macedonia joins the EU? As a member of the interventionist U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, it is Sen. Murphy’s job to ensure that the prospective member-state remains under the West’s control, specifically, U.S. control. But all U.S. politicians, not just those like Murphy specifically tasked to do so, seemingly take an oath to pledge allegiance to U.S. foreign interventionism.
The Vicious — and Deadly — Cycle of "US Diplomacy"​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
The Vicious — and Deadly — Cycle of "US Diplomacy"​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Picture the United States as a murderer (it shouldn't be difficult). Uncle Sam murders someone, the evidence is overwhelming, witnesses abound, he confesses, and it's even caught on video. But Uncle Sam won't be tried for murder — he'll be celebrated as a champion of human rights and democracy instead. This is the USA's interventionist and murderous foreign policy M.O. transparently veiled as "US diplomacy".
Selective Outrage Enables Murder
Selective Outrage Enables Murder
We cannot allow countries to be invaded, the killing of innocent civilians, coups of democratically elected governments, and vicious attacks on people’s most basic of human rights — all in the name of a sadistic foreign leader who only cares about his country’s dominance (or revival of dominance) on the world stage. We cannot allow him to spin the narrative and blatantly lie about something that is so (literally) painfully obvious. Referring to an avoidable tragedy by any other name does not change his culpability in inflicting mounting human suffering.
Western Media Coverage of Macedonia Perpetuates Hate
Western Media Coverage of Macedonia Perpetuates Hate
A drunk driver runs a red light and slams into a crowd of pedestrians, gravely injuring several. If this happened in Macedonia, the headline in Western media would be: "Pedestrians Cause Car Accident, Major Damage to Vehicle". Imagine that every headline and news story about your ethnic group is rife with misinformation and designed to eradicate the existence of your ethnic identity.
The United States: The Beacon of Hypocrisy
The United States: The Beacon of Hypocrisy
Throughout his political career, Joe Biden has lived for — while millions have died as a result of — U.S.-waged wars, proxy wars, coups, and all-around American interventionism. He talked about the "tenets of the United Nations", "human rights", "international law" and had the unsurprising audacity to say...
The Affliction That Keeps On Inflicting — The American Superiority Complex​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
The Affliction That Keeps On Inflicting — The American Superiority Complex​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
A core leftist principle is anti-interventionism. But American faux-leftists (read: the Democratic Party) are beholden to the same force that drives the Republican Party — American Culture. (And both parties partially, if not completely, created it). It is this culture that not only forbids Americans from speaking out against interventionism and warmongering, it practically mandates “celebrating the troops” at every opportunity.
