I had someone on the deviantart political forum tell me there was no fascists involved in the Ukrainian coup.
I then sent him a link to the Svoboda party, and he actually told me I was lying. I SENT PROOF!
I had more evidence than that single link, but wasting anymore time on that guy was pointless...He said there was no fascists in the Ukrainian coup even after I proved it. I can not tell you how many times I have heard someone give me Oreilly and Maddow talking points on this issue.
Anyways, here are some of those Ukrainian fascists "i am making up" in action.
Look how the New York Daily News spins this situation...Just look at the headline.
Head of Ukraine TV slapped around by politicians, forced to resign on camera
Politicians? THEY ARE FASCISTS! Fascists who now have more power in Ukraine then before the coup occurred. That article then goes on to refer to the Svoboda party as just "far right."
And Yes, the Svoboda party is fascist/neo-nazi, their prior name was the Social-National Party(Does that sound familiar? As in 'national socialist')
The Social-National Party of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Соціал-національна партія України) (SNPU) was a far right party in Ukraine that would later become a leading Ukrainian party, Svoboda. The party combined radical nationalism and some neo-Nazi features.
The party was registered on October 16, 1995; although the original movement was founded on October 13, 1991, in Lviv. According to Der Spiegel the "Social-National Party" title was an "intentional reference to Adolf Hitler's National Socialist party." Another echo was the use of the Wolfsangel logo, a symbol popular among neo-Nazi groups, which also formed the letters I and N ("Idea Natsii" Ukrainian for "idea of a nation").
Thank God for alternative Media. This is how the headline should read.
