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.
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...
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.
I've asked Freeland why she supports the regime in Macedonia. I've kept her and her policy advisors apprised of escalating human rights abuses against Macedonians throughout the Balkans. Describing the two broken legs suffered by the spokeswoman of an opposition party, also at a protest against the regime, did not phase her. NATO expansion is her goal, and nothing will get in her way.
It's a New Kind of Reality Competition -
Human rights abuses must be condemned no matter the perpetrator. But that is not the American way. The American way is to condemn abuses unless they’re committed by the United States or a U.S.-backed proxy.
Continuing the “American way” theme, I’ve found a new way of exposing U.S. foreign policy hypocrisy – a reality TV competition! Let’s play The Masked Human Rights Abuser:
Article by MHRMI President Bill Nicholov published in US anti-imperialism media outlet Covert Action Magazine (CAM), dedicated to exposing US covert action.
[Note from the Editors of Covert Action Magazine: CAM uses the name “Macedonia”—rather than the imposed “North Macedonia”—as we respect the Macedonian people’s right to self-determination and their own name, identity and history.]
No. We hate US foreign policy because it's destroying our countries. Who are "we"? Macedonia and every country that the United States has ever meddled in.
But US politicians turn everything into an "us (U.S.) vs them" scenario and always blame "the other". But take this scenario instead: You find out that someone hates or is mad at you for something that you're doing. What's the first thing you do? You don't yell and scream "You hate me because of my freedom!" You consider whether what you're doing is right and, if it's not, here's a novel idea (for US politicians): you stop doing it.
Much like so many US presidents before him, Joe Biden has an uncanny ability to say something with a straight face – that the rest of the world finds tragically laughable. And just like his predecessors, the punchline – once again – is how the United States is “leading the global fight for human rights”...while stripping it from as much of the world (and his own people) as possible.
Forget “Je me souviens”, the saying on Quebec licence plates that means “I remember” (and will never forget our history, traditions and identity). Canadian politicians are imposing the slogan “J’oublie” (literally “I forget”) on a distinct group of Canadians. And they’re doing everything in their power to ensure that this group is not able to use their own name, express their identity, or commemorate their history. Which group is it? First, imagine it was you.
