Russian Propaganda Operations Target the U.S.

Using an American to reinforce a policy favored by Moscow is a technique from old Soviet propaganda operations. ....

Direct attacks on the freedom fighters in Ukraine continue to come from the Alex Jones’ Infowars.com website, which supported the Russians against Georgia back in 2008, and is now siding with the Russians against the Ukrainians. The show is syndicated by the Genesis Communication Network on over 60 AM and FM radio stations across the United States....

An Alex Jones writer named Kurt Nimmo has said that those struggling for independence from Russia may well replace the Lenin statues being toppled “with statues of the man who worked behind the scenes to overthrow the country’s democratically elected government—billionaire globalist George Soros.” ....

The smear of the protesters as Soros puppets, from the Alex Jones crowd, is a deliberate exaggeration designed to take the focus away from the Obama administration’s failure to confront Russia’s designs on the region. As AIM has reported, Soros and his foundations are involved in literally dozens of countries around the world, including Ukraine, but there is no evidence he has had anything to do with the anti-communist revolution in the country. In fact, Soros has called capitalism the major “threat” to the world today and has been soft on socialist and communist regimes. ....

In Ukraine, the new government is so anti-communist that it is threatening to outlaw the Communist Party. The communists had supported Viktor Yanukovych because of his determination to “strengthen international ties with Russia and countries of the Shanghai Co-operation Organization,” notes the U.S. Communist Party newspaper, People’s World. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization includes Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Echoing Moscow, the Communist Party of Ukraine is now claiming the new government is run by Nazis and fascists.

>>>In Ukraine, the new government is so anti-communist that it is threatening to outlaw the Communist Party.<<<

Martin Niemöller (1892-1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

First they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I have been keeping up with The Ukraine on Elena ? site. She is there living every horror. She is seeing firsthand the actions of the people vs the government. She has seen what the police are doing. She has a picture of the ex-leader and his family. She said the boys recently became billionaires. This site is so much better than news sites because she makes it real. You see the bloody bandages of the people and she tells their stories. It is not propaganda. See for yourself.
