A third and crucial case of propaganda by omission relates to the integration of neo-Nazis into the Ukrainian armed forces (FAIR.org, 3/7/14, 1/28/22). If the corporate media reported more critically about Western support for the neo-Nazi-infested Ukrainian security services, and how these forces function as a front-line proxy of US foreign policy, public support for war might be reduced and military budgets called into greater question.
As recent coverage demonstrates, one way of resolving this issue is by not mentioning the inconvenient matter of Ukrainian neo-Nazis altogether.
In 2014, the Azov Battalion was incorporated into the National Guard of Ukraine (NGU) to assist with fighting against pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.
At the time, the militia’s association with neo-Nazism was well documented: The unit used the Nazi-inspired Wolfsangel symbol as its logo, while its soldiers sported Nazi insignia on their combat helmets. In 2010, the Azov Battalion’s founder declared that Ukraine should “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade…against Semite-led Untermenschen.”Western Media Fall in Lockstep for Neo-Nazi Publicity Stunt in Ukraine – FAIR
How did the US fall so deeply into the darkness of supporting Nazis and fascism?
MLK Jr said that the greatest evils are militarism, racism and predatory capitalism. The US is suffering from all 3 of these plus other evils just as bad if not worse. This war is a direct consequence of the US supporting the worst three evils in the world, rather than moving in the opposite direction.
Because Ukraine has over a dozen nuclear power plants plus associated spent fuel pools that cannot survive without constant powered cooling, this war may rapidly escalate into a full blown global catastrophe, due to the melting down of multiple nuclear plants, where workers have abandoned them and left them due to the fog of war.
