Hillary and Other Assorted Barbarians at Russia’s Gate

    The United States is more than just an ally to fascists in Ukraine and everywhere else; the American South provided an historical model for fascism. “The fascist order of the pre-Sixties Solid South was simply a domestic expression of U.S. Manifest Destiny – the national religion.” The fascists – both local and imperial – have laid siege to Russia.


    Hillary and Other Assorted Barbarians at Russia’s Gate

    by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

    Americans sound like southern white fascists, with their reflexive assumptions of supremacy, global privilege, and ordained national mission.”

    Hillary Clinton is a walking profanity – and, thereby, a prime candidate to be the next president of the United States. The fiend who played Julius Caesar when U.S.-employed jihadists butchered Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi (“We came, we saw, he died”) now likens Russia’s response to the U.S.-backed fascist putsch in the Ukraine to Hitler’s quest for a Greater Germany. It is like spitting on the graves of the 25 million Russians and other Soviet nationalities slaughtered in Hitler’s racist jihad – the people who actually defeated the Nazis while the U.S. and Britain loitered off Europe’s shores. At war’s end, the United States imported thousands of Nazis to construct the nuclear/chemical/biological military juggernaut that would usher in an “American Century” – while confiscating Paul Robeson and W.E.B. Dubois’ passports.

    Thanks to the Americans, West German denazification never happened but, by the mid-Seventies, Washington had implanted fascist military regimes throughout Latin America – one of which exterminated 200,000 Guatemalan Mayas.

    When John Kerry praises the “brave Ukrainians” that “took to the streets to stand against tyranny and demand democracy,” he makes common cause with the direct political heirs of the Ukrainian Waffen SS units and concentration camp guards that eagerly joined Hitler’s genocidal rampage in the mid-20th century. The Ukrainian fascists, who command 40 percent of the electorate in some western regions of the country, return the compliment, hoisting the Confederate flag in Kiev’s city hall. They see, correctly, that the epicenter of their ideology is not Berlin, but Washington.

    Ethnic purity was the organizing principle of one-party Democratic rule in Dixie from the mid-1870s to the mid-1960s.”

    The trans-Atlantic affinity is more fundamental and deep-rooted than the $5 billion that Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland brags the U.S. has invested in developing “democratic institutions” in Ukraine – resulting in the overthrow of the elected government and its replacement by ethnic-based mob rule. This is the model that held sway in the southern United States for nearly a century, following the death of Reconstruction. Ethnic purity was the organizing principle of one-party Democratic rule in Dixie from the mid-1870s to the mid-1960s. Race and Nation were One, ordained by God, Science and History, obligating every white man to break and burn the bodies of all Negroes, mongrels and race-mixing whites that might challenge the political order. Mob rule – lynch law – buttressed the political and economic supremacy of the most exploitative sectors of industry and agribusiness. The American “Solid South” not only fits the “classic” definition of fascism, it provided a template for future fascists. The apartheid order in Dixie predates the establishment of fascist regimes in Europe and, in terms of its racial component, has more in common with the Nazi strain than Mussolini’s Italy.

    The ideological unity of the White South empowered Democrat/Fascists to exercise outsized influence over the national government. The Dixie-born Ku Klux Klan became a national phenomenon, and the emerging U.S. empire swaggered about the globe with a decidedly southern accent. Pre-Civil War white southern dreams of building a slave empire throughout the Americas meshed nicely with Teddy Roosevelt’s imperial ambitions. Shortly after the turn of the 20th century, Roosevelt violated all the rules of naval warfare in favor of racial pageantry, painting U.S. naval vessels white for a world tour of “The Great White Fleet.” Both Europe and the non-white world understood his meaning.

    The American ‘Solid South’ not only fits the ‘classic’ definition of fascism, it provided a template for future fascists.”

    When the Black Freedom Movement forced a split in the national Democratic Party, in the early Sixities, southern whites bolted to the Republicans, transforming the Party of Lincoln into the national White Man’s Party. With Dixie the bedrock of Republican electoral college strength, the coded language of race came to dominate general U.S. political discourse. In a very real sense, Americans sound like southern white fascists, with their reflexive assumptions of supremacy, global privilege, and ordained national mission – including lots of Black Americans. After all, the fascist order of the pre-Sixties Solid South was simply a domestic expression of U.S. Manifest Destiny – the national religion.

    Fascists all over the world – not just Ukraine – know they have tens of millions of soul mates in the United States, including the leadership of both major parties. That’s why they flashed the white supremacist gang-sign from Kiev. In turn, the American political class and corporate media prove they are also fascists, by pretending that their Ukrainian allies are democrats.

    With the U.S. and NATO now poised at Russia’s door, as was Germany in 1941, Hillary Clinton attempts to flip the clear historical parallel by ranting that it is President Putin who seeks a “Greater Russia.” The Kremlin has every reason to believe the barbarians are at the gate.

    JFK had just said no to nukes

    JFK had just said no to nukes stationed in West Germany with NATO control really meaning semi-autonomous West German control by Audenaur. Earlier Eisenhower-Dulles-Nitze had said Germans could have em. That reversal by JFK paved the way for the evolving detente in summer-fall of 63 .  This aspect of US German relations remains curiously under-narrated.  

    Words matter

    Wonderful!  Thank you Glen Ford for a very informative and eye-opening article.  Your words inspire and give hope that there is still some sane clear thinking coming from America.  Yes, words matter and those that connect us to historical referents give us pause for contemplation.

    You mentioned Russia’s great lost of life in fighting fascism during WWII.  You reminded us of the immigration of the defeated Nazis to America where, I imagine, they were welcomed with open arms and without visas.  In America, they found the society that they could love.  Here “white supremacy” was well-established by a history of mass extermination of the Native Americans, a history of enslavement of the Africans, a social contract (US Constitution) designed for white men only, universities teaching white racial superiority, a 2-tier judiciary, one for whites and one for non-whites, mass black incarceration, and organizations like the Ku Klux Klan whose members infiltrated the police and government on all levels.  They had and still do have real power to exterminate, eliminate, annihilate, and assassinate blacks with no judicial consequences.   Oh yeah, it was like homecoming for these Nazis.  

    And what invasion is Miss Hilary talking about?  Russia didn’t invade Ukraine.  They were already there.  America and its co-conspirators did.  The only countries that are known to be seeking greater hegemony over other nations are the United States and Israel.  I often wonder why Hilary gets to utter such outrageous, belligerent, antagonistic, and threatening words with impunity.  She uses verbiage like annihilate, obliterate, and eliminate.  Words matter.  Now those words are not unlike the words spoken by Hitler himself.  Think about it.  Vilifying Hilary was justified.  She is a genuine pit bull for the neoconservatives who have absolute control of the economy and are part of the political elite, the rulers.  Unfortunately, these are the types that get to be president and secretary of the state in America.

    Absolute control of the economy and a society with no real judiciary is equal to “fascism.”  Thanks again for casting some light on this ominous state of affairs in America and in the world. 

    Thank you

    for the laser-like analysis.

    A member of the Ukrainian

    A member of the Ukrainian Waffen SS ws found living in the Twin Cities last summer. He had written a book describing his activities during WWII. There was a bit of a press splash for a few weeks, but to my knowledge, nothing came of it. He is in an area that has welcomed his ideology for decades.



    Video of Sergei Pashinsky, Ex Ukranian Prime Minister Caught!

    Ex Ukranian Prime Minister Under Timoshenko, Sergei Pashinsky, caught with sniper rifle and silencer leaving Independence Square after massacre of protesters! See captioned video (not in English, sorry) at: 


    Also, audio tape with Estonian PM showing how transitional govt (fascists) in Ukraine trying to stop investigation of massacre:


    This further confirms the likelihood that Ukranian fascists currently leading the transitional government initiated the murder of protesters to support "regime change" and ascend to power (that they could not gain democratically at the ballot box). Read more:

    Please help further investigate this report and tell us more (in English!). THANK YOU. 

    This Tactic Used in Syria & in Venezuela Coup Attempt vs Chavez

    in 2002... & before that in other parts of Latin America.

    The Formula- Hype your own guys to start a rukus, & when the other side reacts by trying to bring things under control, hire some snipers to shoot folks on both sides & then blame the guys your trying to over-throw for being the culprits [plus if the other-side is armed & on edge they're likely to naturally start shooting back anyway]. It helps if your guys are really routy yet unarmed & above all unaware of what you're really up to- aka: Real Machivellian Poly-tricks!

    PS: Its even come out that some guy who was likely an FBI agent provocatuer fired a shot in the air at Kent State, which gave the national guard the excuse to fire into & mow-down the unarmed crowd of students there. 

    And before that there were agent provocatuers that stired shit-up when MLK tried to lead a peaceful protest march in Memphis in March 1968 [just a couple of week before he was gun-down by a sniper in Memphis]- which gave the authorities the excuse to go in & bust heads while busting up MLK's march.

    Thank You

    Good work exposing this new round of insanity.

    OBomber, Hitlery / Killary, Vicky ['F'-U] Nuland & Other

    Neo-CON / Neo-Liberal / IMF / NATO type Barbarians at Russia’s Gate.

    I knew that the Ukrainian fiasco was spear-headed by literal Jew-hating Neo-NAZI type fascists, but when I heard a DN! guest say that a top Ukrainian Church priest incited these Neo-NAZI thugs RE: Jews, Russians & BLACKS[??!]- I almost could NOT believe it. I mean how many Blacks are even in Ukraine- 2 or 3 families maybe? IMO it's got to be easier to find Black folks in Montana, Wyoming, or even Sarah Palin's Alaska- than in Ukraine!

    Well I guess I just got my answer when I saw that video of these Neo-NAZI thugs hanging up a Confederate flag along side a white-Power & Neo-NAZI flag- after forcing the elected Presdent to flee [for his life]!!! 

    So these are the type people that O-Bomber, HITLERY / Killary [I Came, I Saw, He Died-Ha, ha, ha] Clinton, Sue Rice, Sam Power & Skull{duggery}& Bones Kerry, are backing in Ukraine. This would be as bad as what this same cabal did by backing that AL-CIAeda type Racist Lynch Mob in Libya, except unlike Libya, there's hardly any Black people in Ukraine to Lynch [so why do so many Black people keep defending OBomber, Hitlery{as POTUS I'd be willing to 'Obliterate Iran'}Clinton, Sue Rice, etc...]!

    BUT- Unlike Khadaffi in Libya, O-Bomber & crew better need to be REAL Careful about stirring up a shit-storm w Putin's Russia! 


    Great site for us, direct to the point, no beating around the bush.  Those so call black sites, need to pay attention, Newsone, The Grio, not own by blacks.                                           Thanks Black Agenda Report.
