Assange Just Hammered America’s Hypocrisy of Selective Outrage Over US-Support of Neo-Nazis

In a series of tweets, Julian Assange exposed the blatant hypocrisy of America's selective outrage when their government supports terrorists and neo-Nazis.

Assange Just Hammered America Hypocrisy of Selective Outrage Over US-Support of Neo-NazisJulian Assange, founder of the global transparency group WikiLeaks, took to Twitter to highlight and expose the extreme hypocrisy of the US by contrasting the recent extreme right vs extreme left protests in Charlottesville, which resulted in one death and multiple injuries, and the U.S. government funding of Ukrainian neo-Nazi groups during the Ukrainian coup that overthrew then president Viktor Yanukovych.

In a startling picture that truly exposes the disconnect between US domestic and foreign policy, Assange juxtaposed a photo of a neo-Nazi torch march in Kiev with the far-right torch march held in Charlottesville.

And while the imagery is very similar, the main difference between the two images is that the Ukrainian ultra-nationalists looked much more menacing – sporting bullet-proof vests and wearing black masks over their faces.

The irony here is that while the violence blamed on the extreme-right in Charlottesville has been a non-stop talking point on US mass media since the violent altercations took place, the Ukrainian neo-Nazis, who were largely funded by the United States government, received very little attention from the western media in spite of them overthrowing a legitimately elected government and installing a US-backed neo-Nazi regime.

A detailed academic investigation by Ivan Katchanovski reveals that these events were actually a false flag operation, which was planned and operationalized with the intent of overthrowing the Yanukovych government by an alliance of ultra-nationalist organizations, such as Right Sector and Svoboda, and oligarchic parties, specifically Fatherland.

Additional evidence indicates that the U.S. was already actively planning the creation of a new Ukrainian government as evidenced by the leaked audio of a conversation between Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the U.S. Department of State Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt.

The message from the power-elite in the US seems to be clear: Nazis organizing in America are bad, but Nazis that help the US overthrow foreign governments are good and deserve funding from the US government.

This type of disconnect seems commonplace in US political discourse though, as Islamic militants are vilified in the US media as terrorists – that is unless they are renamed “moderate rebels” and are armed and funded by the CIA in hope of overthrowing a government (think Syria).

What makes this dynamic even more fascinating is that the vilified American far-right is far from the centers of governmental power and do not have anything close to a political/military organization capable of putting together, let alone overthrowing a government – yet the media salivates over the story.

In contrast, Svoboda and Right Sector, two neo-Nazi groups firmly entrenched in the mainstream of Ukrainian politics, are in many ways in control of Ukrainian political discourse after US-backing of their fascist coup in 2014.

Assange went on to criticize the power of identity politics as a dangerously divisive tool that when employed offensively typically leads to civil strife within a targeted society. He went on to note how the United States actively funds and arms sectarian groups abroad in order to foment civil disorder – often as a precursor to a full-blown regime change operation using proxy forces.

Taking aim at the US support for Islamic terrorists in Syria, under the guise of arming the “moderate rebels,” Assange humorously posted a picture denoting that he had “finally found those ‘moderate rebels’ everyone was looking for.”

The irony of the his tweet is that in Syria there are very few homegrown ‘moderate rebels’ but instead, a plethora of foreign funded Wahhabi extremist terrorists, while in the US there are actual moderate rebels, whom many find extremely repugnant, but who are generally non-violent and largely irrelevant – with an occasional exception.

Make no mistake that the US is playing a dangerous game with its use of identity politics to wedge different groups, essentially engaging in divide and conquer politics. While the violence is now occasional, things could get much worse as this continues.

The use of this tactic at home is creating a schism that will likely become irreparable once these forming identities are solidified. Thus there is a distinct potential to devolve into something akin to a new American Civil War.

As we have already seen, the use of these tactics globally, in combination with funding and arming of these groups, has already toppled governments and left death and destruction in their wake. These same tactics could very well be at play domestically.

If the US really cared about ending sectarian strife it should stop arming it abroad and encouraging it at home.
