Under the oligarchic junta, Ukraine is being transformed under the supervision and approval of U.S. secret services into a Nazi state as documented by the introduction of new official symbols of governmental departments.
The battalion "Azov" of the Ministry of Interior is sporting the neo-Nazi symbol "Wolfsangel," which, like many of the occult symbols of this kind, has always few layers of esoteric meanings. What this means that, as before, today's Nazis are comprised both of idiots and the higher elite echelons, who are much like a priesthood and a secret order of initiates.
The attached picture of a membership card in the battalion Azov shows the Wolfsangel not only as part of the battalion's insignia, but, as you can see, it is also part of the official stamp of a branch of Avakov's Ministry of Interior.
In other words, Nazification of the state of Ukraine is proceeding under the guidance of the Maidan leadership.
In the Ivano-Frankovsk region, Banderite/Nazi organizations, including US-sponsored Internet TV Hromadske, are organizing a fund-raising festival (late July-early August). The funds are to support the Right Sector's militants and battalions like Azov.
What is interesting is the name of the festival--Bandershtat. Evidently, for Ukrainian Nazis, even the name of Ukraine is no longer good enough. Perhaps it is too Russian or too Slavic. So, for them, the new Nazi Ukraine ought to be Bandershtat (Bandera-staat). Since they decided to improve on "staat" by making it into "shtat," they should perhaps continue with their self-improvement and use a bit of Americanization for their new designation as well.
Here is a little promo video. At 0:05 you can spot a little noose "for the communists." This also sums up the essence of the Nazi program--of course, with a flexible and elastic notion of who "communists" happen to be on the given day.
Another video leaves no doubt about the Nazi and radical program of the new Ukrainian state and its attempted Nazification.
Since NATO under Obama and the EU direct, advise, finance, shield, protect, and arm this Nazification program in Central/Eastern Europe, they are thereby also making themselves pro-Nazi organizations.
On October 11, 2001, George W. Bush declared: "The attack ... was an attack on the heart and soul of the civilized world. And the world has come together to fight a new and different war ... A war against all those who seek to export terror, and a war against those governments that support or shelter them."
Nazism, which the White House happens to bankroll, support, and direct, is the "attack on the heart and soul of the civilized world."
Now, 13 years later, the Empire, the Hegemon, is supporting Nazism in Ukraine. However, if the US and its allies have a vested interest in pretending that these new Nazis are "democrats, for more than three years, the Obama administration also tried to uphold the pretense that al Qaeda-led extremists and radicals are "moderates" and "democrats" as well. And this West-and-Arab-despots-supported "moderation" produced 170,000 dead in Syria and ISIS' extremist state or "caliphate." The difference between the fascists imported to Syria and the Nazis in Ukraine is that the former try to hide their de facto Nazism (hate for humanity and human life) behind religion, that kind of religion, which is fostered by their patron, Saudi Arabia, a key US ally in the Middle East and the Muslim world. For most part, al-Qaeda brigades that fight the Syrian government and the Syrian people are an expeditionary force assembled from more than 80 different nations, both non-Western and Western. Many of its key commanders are either Saudis or Chechens or Westerners in masks.
Ukrainian Nazism (Banderism) is a movement that was fostering under the foster care of Western secret services (and before under the care of Nazi Germany) for more than the last seventy years. Bandera, the main hero of this movement, was both an agent of the original Nazis (and the SS) and the CIA during the first years of the Cold War.
And today Western liberals are the best friends which this new fascism has gotten, which is somewhat ironic. Western liberals did often admire fascists before or they did also act as their financiers. But fascism always liked to talk about its contempt for fascism. Yet, if anyone listened carefully, the Nazis (and their somewhat less virile fascist brethren) never concealed the fact that, for them, liberalism was at most a little distraction, not more than a temporary inconvenience, but never their main enemy or most principled opponent. It was also this understanding, which Leo Strauss, the Teacher of American neo-conservatism took with him to the United States. On the last page of his friendly "polemic" with Carl Schmitt, the leading authority on Nazi "jurisprudence," Strauss said this: "[For fascism] the polemic against liberalism can therefore only signify a concomitant or preparatory action ... ultimately, two completely opposed answers to the question of what is right confront each other, and these answers allow of no mediation and no neutrality. Thus what ultimately matters [for Schmitt and any other Nazi] is not the battle against liberalism." (Carl Schmitt, The Concept of the Political, Chicago: 1996, p. 106)
Historically, liberalism either bent backwards before fascism (viz the Munich Deal or rather Dictate of 1938 between Great Britain, France, Mussolini and Hitler) or it allows itself to be ridden by it (in occupied territories) or tries to ride it (as the US did after World War II in Latin America and elsewhere) or uses it as a proxy against the main enemy, and when the beast happens to be brought down, then claims and demands the rights of the victory (as in World War II).
