- the Lemniscat:"Graham, McCain, Nuland, Brennan and Biden all visit Kiev but it's Russia that's interfering in Ukraine? #Seriously???
There's a detail that might cause McCain fans at home some concern. As the U.K.'s Channel 4 news points out, McCain was repeatedly photographed with Oleh Tyahnybok, the leader of the right wing nationalist party Svoboda. When it was founded in 1995, the party called itself the Social-National Party of Ukraine (SNPU), and it had a swastika-like logo. While it eventually split from its more right wing members, the party remained focused on celebrating Ukrainian ethnic identity in opposition to Russia and Communism.
Tyahnybok himself was expelled from the Our Ukraine parliamentary faction in 2004 after giving a speech demanding that Ukrainians fight against a "Muscovite-Jewish mafia" (he later clarified this by saying that he actually had Jewish friends and was only against to "a group of Jewish oligarchs who control Ukraine and against Jewish-Bolsheviks [in the past]"). In 2005 he wrote open letters demanding Ukraine do more to halt "criminal activities" of "organized Jewry," and, even now, Svoboda openly calls for Ukrainian citizens to have their ethnicity printed onto their passports.
In the past, McCain has sometimes revealed a simplistic, Cold War viewpoint of Russia. You have to wonder if, by going to Ukraine and standing on stage with a man accused of being an anti-Semitic neo-Nazi, he may have shown that trait again." - from http://www.businessinsider.com/john-mccain-meets-oleh-tyahnybok-in-ukraine-2013-12

- the-straw-man :"Not the first time he has posed with "freedom fighters":
=>John McCain poses with known jihad kidnappers in Syria
- AZ WI@the-straw-man: "John McCain should be charged with treason and as a terrorist himself with his world wide tour trying to insight numerous wars and killings."
- James1:"McCain is an old-school anti-communist. He is one of the relics of that Cold War era when America partnered with former actual Nazis ostensibly to fight the spread of Communism. Why does it surprise anyone that he would step on stage with a neo-Nazi? He sees this as a fight against the Russian bear. He is insane! "
- AZ WI @James1: "The leadership of the GOP should demand McCain's resignation!"
- ferret :"Well, McCain meeting with a neo-Nazi is no surprise , he met with al Qaeda leaders in Syria this past memorial day and if anyone does some research into McCain background they would find that if his father had not been the head of the Pacific fleet during Vietnam, McCain would have been court martialed and this involves his role in the explosion and fire on the air craft carrier the U.S.S.S. FORRESTAL and his making some 40 tapes for the north Vietnamese, anyone who doubts this can research both of these, it is well documented."
- AZ WI@ferret: "Isn't it past time that the old hypocritical warmonger retire?"
- RP01:"There are Waffen SS marches going on all the time in ex-Soviet Baltic republics, all NATO and EU members. With tacit US approval, of course, because these are also the most anti-Russian forces. America will approve the darkest, most evil groups if their purpose is to fight Russia, Iran, Syria or someone else USA doesn't like at the moment."
- Jack Brown@RP01: "You're making a valid point, but Russia too, has to watch out for their own Neo-Nazis and ultra-nationalist hate groups. The images of Russian youth throwing out Heil Hitler Salutes is shameful and disrespectful to their grandfathers who died fighting German Nazism/Fascism in Russia and Europe during WW2"
- PR01@Jack Brown: "Russia s watching this scum, all right. Unlike in Baltics, Russian fascists are not endorsed at government level. But if Putin cracks down too hard, he'll be accused of beng another reincarnation of Stalin."
- AZ WI:"Once again McCain proved that he's a bitter hypocritical idiot! That old goat is certainly NO military or foreign affairs expert, he's just a war thirsty warmonger. McCain's war hungry, warmongering views are similar to Hitler and the Nazis anyways. McCain and Hitler wouldn't blink a eye killing innocent people with their bombings."
- Jack Brown:"There are Ukrainian Neo-Nazis, and English, and Russian, and American, and even Danish, Swedish, Australian, etc. That doesn't mean that a great majority of the people of the countries I mentioned are good, decent, and kind. But every country has it's own share of imbeciles. Mr. Tyahnybok on the other hand is not decent. He is an extremist, right wing demagogue. I heard the man speak many times. I'm fluent in Russian and understand the Ukrainian language quite well. The man is a xenophobe, Anti-Semitic and Anti-Russian. It's all very clear in his speeches. All one has to do is listen (and actually understand what the hell he's talking about, which means understand the Ukrainian language). Anyways, the man worships Stepan Bandera and SS Galitchina, and was expelled from European Nationalist Organizations (even they think he's too extreme).
The term Anti -Semitism or anti Semitic originated in Europe around 19th century (it was widely spread around the second half of the 19th century). It had nothing to do with the Arabs or meant to insult the Arab people. The Arabs didn't even live in Continental Europe at that time. The term was strictly used to insult the Jews (European Jews in particular).
When the Mayor of Austria (Karl Lueger) proclaimed that he was an Anti-Semite, the people of Austria knew exactly what he was talking about and cheered him on wholeheartedly. As far as the Soviets using the so called 'Jewry' to destroy Ukraine by using famine (Golodomor) that is a ridiculous statement if I ever heard one.
The Bolsheviks were Marxist/Leninist ideologues who came from very different religious and ethnic backgrounds. Lenin was born Russian Orthodox (doesn't mean that he was a practicing Christian), Nikita Khrushchev, Joseph Stalin were also born into Christian families which doesn't mean that they were Christians themselves, and Lazar Kaganovich was born to a Jewish family (but that doesn't mean that he was a practicing Jew) or valued Jewish religious and cultural traditions. They all on the other hand were Marxist Communists and held important posts in the Politburo. Many of them held the highest posts in the Soviet Government and at one time or the other were responsible for repressions, and YES, deaths of hundreds of thousands if not millions of people from all over former USSR and not just Ukraine.
Oleg Tyahnybok is an Anti-Semite. I heard the man speak. I'm fluent in Russian and understand the Ukrainian language quite well. I was born and spent most of my childhood in Western Ukraine (N. Bukovina). When I was a kid I used to go to Ivano-Frankovsk almost every summer and was back there (Western Ukraine that is) in 2011. I'm quite familiar with folks like Mr. Tyahnybok (all to familiar!). By the way, when Tyahnybok accepted the gold cross from the hands of Galitchina SS 'veterans' that truly showed of what kind of a man he was.
I wonder what McCain's old buddy Joe Lieberman thinks of all this. Probably hiding his head in shame. McCain should have done his research. Retirement sound like a good idea right about now. Definitely not McCain of 2000. Sad."
- AZ WI @Jack Brown: "McCain was always a idiot in 2000 and today."
21st Century Wire says:"In 2013 and 2014, US State Department operative Victoria Nuland, along with war envoy Senator John McCain, worked with the Ukraine’s NeoNazi militant factions in the hope that they would perform the majority of the dirty work required to first overthrow the parliament in Kiev, put down any opposition to the new coup, and later to terrorize the Russian-speaking populations in the Ukraine and the Donbass region.
Now the US and EU-engineered chaos in the Ukraine has come full circle…
It’s also worth noting how the western media, along with George Soros-funded “Pussy Riot”publicity stunt campaign – worked hard to portray Russia as an intolerant society and Putin as “anti-gay” – all while the US State Dept. and Soros covertly backed the Nazi revival in the Ukraine. They have created a monster that cannot be put back in the bottle for another generation. Even the Ukrainian police are siding with US-backed Nazi mobs now:
“What the LGBT community found most shocking is that police failed to arrest a single attacker. Instead, according to local media, the authorities opted to hold a series of “informative discussions” with the youth, none of whom officially belonged to an organized party.”
More from RT…
Ukrainian riot police proved to be somewhat useless against a crowd of ultra-nationalists in the city of Lvov, as they failed to protect an LGBT gathering from harassment and did not arrest a single suspect after retreating from the confrontation with attackers. Amid a court ban on public Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) events in the city of Lvov, minority activists decided to organize a private gathering in the Dnestr hotel, where a few dozen people arrived to take part in the so-called “Equality Festival.”
The organizers placed private security at the entrance to the conference hall where the festival, which close to 200 people registered to attend, was about to begin. In addition local police units reinforced the security for the closed door festival, the highlight of which was a poster exhibition dedicated to women and minority rights.
But the event never took place, as a crowd of ultra nationalist youth, few covering their faces with balaclavas, slowly but surely surrounded the Dnestr hotel demanding that authorities stop the event.
“We are blocked at the hotel,” organizer Olena Shevchenko said on Facebook from the hotel. “Police don’t want to react, they are saying all those people in masks just meet their friends here.”…

From the COMMENTS :
- John Cook:"I find this whole Ukraine situation incredibly funny. It started with the Tribe organized coup (it wasn't essentially the US that did it, it was Tribe organized from the start) that brought their true homeland under their control (Ukraine is where Kazeria was mostly situated - they're preparing for the sacrifice of 'Israel' to the cause.) by Victoria Nuland/Kagan (the 'king' of Khazaria was called the Kagan) and the installation of a completely Tribe dominated government featuring the fat fool Poroshenko (Tribe member) and the amazingly evil and rat like Yatsenyuk (Tribe member) using foolish cartoon 'Nazis" (no true Nazi would support a Tribe run government). All done with the support of George Soros (Tribe Member).
BTW The video showed zero examples of the cartoon Nazis or their symbols - they looked like just angry Ukrainian nationalists who are disgusted by the LGBT corruption of their country."
- celtic_gross:"Ukraine is this where Chernobyle is located? After all this is where 120.000 Russian Troops lost their lives dousing the Stricken Nuclear Plant with concrete in 1987. The worst Nuclear Meltdown until 2013 Japanese Fukushima that is shortly to be twinned with Hinkley Point C."
- John Cook celtic_gross:"Yeah, that's the place. It's amazing how few people know what the soviet people sacrificed to get it under control.
BTW Fukushima was sabotage carried out by the Tribe run 'Security" company BSP Magna from Dimona, that had just been given the security contract and promptly introduced the Stuxnet virus to the reactors systems as well as an illegal internet link. Then used that net link to watch and direct the worst environmental crime in history. Reactors don't melt down just because they got wet."
- Mr Reynard John Cook:"Well, at that time the Japanese government must have ed of the tribe?? Like Malaysia has pissed them off & they lost 3 planes as a consequence ??"
- John Cook Mr Reynard:"Yup, they never 'liked' Japan, no locals to infiltrate the gov with and the Japanese belief in Honor would have made it very difficult anyway, that really pissed them off, just the opposite of their system. But the immediate unforgivable actions were something to do with Iran and their offer to enrich uranium for them. I think it was done so openly that it was also a message to the govs of the rest of the world that they were no longer just fuking around. Btw Japan is very 'anti-semetic' - Mien Kampf and the Protocols are very popular and on open sale there."
