Why no appointment? Because the Nazi’s are our allies in running the Ukrainian government put in place by Hillary’s state department and Victoria Nuland.

Global Neo-Nazism Is Increasing. Why Is The State Department Anti-Semitism Envoy Position Still Vacant?

On April 20, an organization called C14 — which has been described as having members who openly express neo-Nazi views by Radio Free Europe, among other outlets — carried out a terrifying anti-Roma pogrom in Kiev. Over the next two months, four other pogroms, including one in which a man was brutally killed and four others injured, raged across Ukraine. The outbreak of ethnic-fueled hatred was condemned by the The United Nations in Ukraine, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and a joint letter by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Front Line Defenders and Freedom House. All these expressed extreme concern with both the impunity of far-right gangs and the government’s lax response.

On July 21, the New York Times finally decided to cover the situation, focusing mostly on the original April 20 pogrom which had been proudly filmed by C14.

The article starts by presenting the pogroms as a he-said-she-said spat between C14 and the Roma:

Further down, the New York Times proceeds to give C14’s leader Yevhen Karas astounding room to whitewash his gang and notes that C14 identifies themself as “an educational group that organizes lectures and seminars,” and for Karas to assert “that the episodes were not xenophobic attacks.” Karas is also given the last word: “When people look for justice,” he proclaims at the end of the article, “They come to us.”

The New York Times calls deadly, ethnic-driven pogroms “episodes” and “interventions.” The hatred behind these attacks is described as “tensions over the Roma,” as if the Roma were somehow responsible for the ambiguous “tensions.” On the other hand, the closest the article comes to describing C14’s neo-Nazi nature is by labeling them as “nationalist[s]” and vaguely hinting that some groups in Ukraine may “espouse ugly ideologies.”

In reality, Western media has long acknowledged that members of C14 espouse neo-Nazi views. The Los Angeles Times explained the group’s name as a reference to the infamous 14-words slogan of white supremacy. And in 2014, the BBC had a short video featuring Karas, a swastika and neo-Nazi symbols. In the video, which is clearly titled “Neo-Nazi threat in new Ukraine,” Karas speaks about being concerned with Jewish control over Ukraine.

Ironically, the New York Times article itself is accompanied by a photograph of C14 members giving Nazi salutes.
