‘Help Ukrainian Army’ editorial

From page A5 | June 23, 2014 |

EDITOR:

This editorial was published in the May 14 Mountain Democrat. I read the entire letter, looking for some sense of identity — who wrote it? The reason I ask is that this article a classical piece of manipulation and misinformation. And for what purpose?

For what reason would the “Russian” presence be named as professional provocateurs? Stealing armored vehicles, taking over buildings? Why make the cost of gas be a uniquely Russian induced condition? Our own gas prices are inflated beyond belief — yet we happily and ignorantly line up.

Calling a free election “sketchy,” as if we are above reproach in that department (post-Civil War carpetbaggers, electoral college, lobbyist, Koch brothers — you get my drift).

Children were allowed to vote — what is the problem? Some say 18-year-olds are children — but they have the right to vote.

Gun-toting thugs guarding polling places? We have those everywhere in America — we call them police and sheriffs.

I guess it helps that Joe Biden’s son and John McCain have been appointed to the Armenian Financial Council. But why? To make sure the people do not gain access to their own government? How would we feel if a foreign government elected one or two of its political forces to our Federal Reserve? Get prospective.

This is a battle between free citizens and a group steeped in fascism that wants to gain control of this breadbasket and for which the citizens are willing to fight — something we, willing to be led by our noses, may have forgotten.

Our aid should be to the people — food, medical supplies, press so that the world knows, not guns, mortars, body armor, night vision goggles for the fascists’ use. That is war mongering and whoever wrote this article should be ashamed of themselves — probably has some financial incentive.

The people of Ukraine need all freedom loving societies to stand up for them, stop swallowing the BS perpetuated by the “McCarthy” camp and demand all military action cease so the people can run their own government and excise the fascist murderers from within and without. Russia is not the problem.

Peace.
