Forget cancel culture. My actual culture is being cancelled. What could this possibly mean? It means that my country’s name, identity and history have been forcibly changed — by the United States — in order to appease our oppressors. What could THIS possibly mean? It means that our two biggest oppressors...
A lot of Democratic Party voters don’t know what is happening in Macedonia, but the Democratic Party does — because they orchestrated it. And the Republican Party fully endorses it. Why? Because it fulfills the number one objective of US foreign policy going back over seven decades — interventionism.
Claiming that Macedonians voluntarily chose to rename our country into “North Macedonia” and ethnicity into “North Macedonians” is like saying that Indigenous groups choose to be called “Redskins”. And when Western media attack Macedonians for denouncing the forced name change, it would be akin to them attacking Indigenous groups for denouncing anti-Indigenous terms.
Welcome to The Surreal World: Macedonia.
Published in Emerging Europe – Of course, all, or any, of these actions should have stopped the “dispute” dead in its tracks. NATO and the EU should have reprimanded (or better yet, expelled) Greece and Bulgaria for the blatant violation of the rights their organizations claim to uphold, but instead they chose to aid them, all in the name of increasing NATO and EU membership. The international community should be condemning all parties involved in the cultural genocide of Macedonians. The aforementioned group of politicians, journalists, etc. – which espouses the defence of human rights, democracy and the rule of law – should issue condemnation, not celebration, of hypocrisy.
When it comes to US foreign policy, there is no left and right. It's a circle. A vicious, never-ending one, that wreaks havoc wherever it goes. A US foreign interventionist tornado, if you will.
Democrats and Republicans seem to be at odds over everything, except two crucial things that unite them. One, the American superiority complex. Two, inflicting it on the rest of the world.
Most of the world is united against Trump, for good reason. Racism, sexism, sheer stupidity.... Pick one, or any of the dozens of other reasons. But Democrats, you suffer from one of Trump's worst qualities - lack of self-awareness. You might not have his comical idiocy (you'll get closer if Joe Biden becomes President) but you're remarkably similar in many other ways.
No politician, diplomat, bureaucrat or journalist I've ever asked this question has answered it. Yet they're quick to tell me to give away my ethnic identity. They try to convince me that the forced renaming of Macedonia, the redefining of what it has ever meant to be Macedonian, and the literal rewriting of Macedonian history is a “good thing because it resolves a diplomatic dispute”. What they're really telling me is that my ethnic group is lesser than theirs.
...And this is how Macedonian politicians, from both major parties, have always governed the Republic of Macedonia – with no balls. It's painfully obvious that they should have never played the game. You can't win by just playing defence – eventually the other team will score, and they will score a lot. And Macedonian politicians have played the game so poorly, they not only made their own team (the Republic of Macedonia) lose, they've taken all of Macedonia's partitioned territory – and all Macedonians, past, present and future – down with them.
If the West's anti-Macedonian arguments were applied elsewhere, then the countries – and their people – that declared independence after the Iron Curtain fell would be deemed “brand new”. So, they didn't have a history before 1991. The Armenian genocide didn't occur because there were no Armenians. Nameless, non-existent sub-humans were slaughtered by the Turks. All Ukrainians were six years old when the famous “Ukraine is game to you” Seinfeld episode aired. Quite a big accomplishment having been given a starring role on the greatest TV show ever for a brand-new invented nationality.
Published in GlobalResearch.ca, by Bill Nicholov, President, MHRMI: Macedonian schoolchildren will no longer be taught that Macedonian heroes are Macedonian. They will be told that they're "Bulgarian". They will be taught that ancient Macedonians were "Greek". Both notions are tragically laughable...
