Eric Zuesse: America’s News Media Foment Hate


Written by Eric Zuesse; Originally appeared on

Like was shown in the movie 1984, in its two-minute section “Two Minutes of Hate,” the US-installed Ukrainian regime on Russia’s doorstep, will soon be debating a bill to make hate of Russia obligatory to be inculcated into all Ukrainian children.

The Hill, on 9 November 2017, had the extraordinary courage to publish an opinion-piece that condemned the mainstream news-media’s charges that reports of widespread “neo-Nazi formations in Ukraine” are nothing but “Russian propaganda.” An editor who would accept a submission like that at such media as the Washington Post, New York Times, New Yorker, The Atlantic, or just about any other in America, would probably be fired or else re-assigned, so as to prevent a repeat. It’s the way to achieve mass-indoctrination, which the Ministry of Truth specializes in. Thus, among the reader-comments to that bold article, the top-listed one under “sort by best” (in other words, the most popular) was the anti-Russian “Have you counted how many neo-Nazis are in the Russian army as well?”

But there is actually nothing at all in Russia which even begins to approach the outright nazi displays and rallies that are routine in today’s Ukraine, and some of which Ukrainian marches are publicly displaying symbols from Hitler’s regime — in fact, it’s all outright illegal in Russia, which had lost (by far) more of its citizens to Germany’s Nazis (13,950,000, or 12.7% of its population) than did any other country (except Belarus — another state within the Soviet Union — which lost 25.3% of its population). (The US, which might be where the obvious bigot who wrote that reader-comment resides, lost 419,400, or 0.32% of its population.) Metaphorically spitting like that, onto such millions of victims’ corpses, is to be expected from bigots, and from the fools who “up-vote” them. Furthermore, the US CIA provided protection and employment in Germany for top members of Hitler’s equivalent to the CIA, the Gehlen Organization. (America’s CIA continues flagrantly to violate the law and hide from Congress and the American people crucial details of its relationship with the Gehlen Organization.) By contrast, the Soviet Union was unremitting in killing Nazis whom it captured. Understandably, Hitler is admired far less in Russia than in today’s far-right United States, despite any lie such as “Have you counted how many neo-Nazis are in the Russian army as well?”

Stupid indoctrinated readers can’t change the facts about the post-coup Ukraine, which are documented not only in that excellent opinion-piece at The Hill, but by innumerable thousands of uploaded videos and other evidences of the nazism of the US-imposed Ukrainian regime. In fact, under US President Barack Obama, whose Administration imposed this nazi government upon Ukraine, the US Government was one of only 3 in the entire world who stood up publicly for nazism at the U.N. The other two nations were Ukraine itself (this vote having occurred after the coup) and Canada. Then, under the current US President Donald Trump, the US was again one of this time the only 2 nations in the entire world who stood up publicly for nazism at the U.N. The other country on that occasion was Ukraine itself. Thereby, Trump took upon himself, Obama’s nazi mantle. And, under Trump, there’s now supply of US weaponry directly to proudly and publicly nazi battalions in Ukraine. Even Obama wasn’t so bold as to do that. FDR would cry, but the Ministry of Truth has prohibited the public even to know about the reality.

Even UK’s supposedly anti-nazi BBC routinely states such baldfaced lies as “Ukraine is emphatically not run by fascists”, though clearly it is run by the worst type, racist fascists, ideological nazis, and they do typically nazi and outright horrendous things, which the Government that the US imposed refuses to punish anyone for having done. That’s because what was done is what the US Government itself had wanted them to do. It had put these people into power.

Here are yet further evidences, that the silence about this fact — silence by virtually all US and allied ‘news’ media, about Ukraine’s US-imposed nazism — is a scandalous proof of the utter corruptness of the US-and-allied ‘news’ media:

“Nazism of Ukraine’s Western-Backed Government Is Hidden by Western ‘News’ Media”

The US regime foisted nazi rule on Ukraine, and backs the ethnic-cleansing program there to kill or else cause to flee from Ukraine into Russia the residents in Ukraine’s far-eastern Donbass region, in which over 90% of the people had voted for the democratically elected Ukrainian President that the US regime overthrew and replaced by fascists and nazis, in February 2014. Obama needed to get rid of those intensely anti-nazi voters, because otherwise the regime that he installed wouldn’t have lasted beyond the first post-coup election. That’s the purpose of ethnic cleansing — to get rid of unwanted voters. Western ‘news’ media portray it (when they do) simply as mass bigotry, but the installed political thugs have actually organized and armed it, in order to retain their power by getting rid of their political opponents’ voters. (Obama required it, in this case, because Ukraine has Europe’s longest border with Russia, and is thus ideal for posting US missiles). But instead of The West’s recognizing publicly that the ethnic-cleansing program exists, The West’s propaganda-vehicles (called ‘news’ media by Big Brother) accuse Russia of ‘aggression’ for arming Donbass’s residents and bringing in food and medicine so that these people can stay there instead of emigrating into Russia. Russia is doing what it can to help them, but turned down the residents’ pleas to become admitted as a new region into Russia. Russia had gotten hit badly enough with America’s sanctions which resulted from Russia’s taking on the burden of protecting and allowing to become Russians again (as had been the case until the Soviet dictator in 1954 transferred them to Ukraine) Crimeans.

So: this ugly mindless and misinformed hate, which America’s ‘news’ media foment by constant lies and distortions against Russia, is being fomented for a reason: conquest. Conquering Ukraine wasn’t enough — the US regime wants, ultimately, to conquer Russia; and, so, that’s what all of this hate build-up is actually about. It’s the prelude to an invasion. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be done, at all. Invasion of Russia, is the sole sensible ultimate reason.

The American people would not tolerate, even for just ten seconds, Russia overthrowing Canada’s Government — our next-door neighbor — in order to place missiles on our border, but people who say such things as “Have you counted how many neo-Nazis are in the Russian army as well?” are, in effect, approving of our country doing that to the Russian people. Ukraine is Russia’s equivalent to our Canada. And, America’s media constantly feed this stupidity and hate, by Americans against Russia, and blindly ignore the hate that the US regime has already unleashed in Ukraine, against Ukraine’s next-door neighbor, in preparation for an invasion of Russia. Never has the US sunk so low, at least not in modern times, but the direction in which we are heading is toward even worse, even lower than now, even more like Hitler’s Germany. Candidate Trump had promised to be the non-Obama, but turns out, on the most important matter of all, to be instead the super-Obama. This is playing with fire — a global fire. And the US Government is doing it with the most-evil intent imaginable. And the media play right along with it, and they whip the hatred even higher than they already have done.

Things aren’t looking good. There are too many lies, for any intelligent person to be able to feel at all comfortable about where we’re headed. The sound of those two minutes of hate is becoming unbearable, for anyone with the ears and brain to hear it. It’s now all around us.

    U.S.-NATO-Ukrainian regime coalition is in a pre-offensive military build-up stage which is concurrent with ‘re-integration’ laws that abandon any pretence of Minsk agreement compliance, openly declaring a preference for a military solution against ethnic Russian populations.

    Accusations of ‘Russian aggression’ are being employed to cultivate anti-Russian public opinion (support for and to facilitate broader adversarial actions against the Russian Federation). But Russian Federation analysts are aware which party is the defender and which the actual aggressor. It is the same military bloc: involved in active offensive military operations against ethnic Russian populations; that attacked and disintegrated Yugoslavia; that expanded its military/missile architecture towards Russian borders in violation of former agreements; that is involved in military aggression against successive strategic opponents; and is already integrating Ukraine into NATO standards [1-5] with moves towards full military/missile integration (behaviour that is associated with broader war preparations against the Russian Federation).

    Israeli terrorists have kidnapped Ahed Tamimi and her parents at midnight by gunpoints. Nobody knows where they are now. Each year Israel kidnap thousands of adults and small kids from the streets. Many of them Israel kill in fake combats. Who support this brutality and terrorism in the world? US, UK, France and Israel. If Vietnam can be freed from American regime army then Palestine can also be freed from Israel. Israel should go back to their countries.

    Lel Russians crying again cause all their neighbours hate them

    • Anti_Globalista

      Insignificant nations always hate great nations, so there is nothing we can do to change that. Old fences in a remote Russian village have more history then the whole country of USA, build on genocide on Natives, and maintained on wars and genocides around the World. We don’t care who hates us and why, just don’t cross our path, because we’ll kick your butt.

      • occupybacon

        Even oil has more history and behind those full of history fences, the Russian people would pack for USA in a minute if they would get the chance, cause if they would want history could visit the dinosaurs museum and don’t worry about crossing your path, we won’t but you won’t either cross ours cause we have new fences made in USA now ;)

  • TiredOfBsToo

    The US has always worked with Nazis even bringing them to the US and protecting them after WW2, so it’s no wonder that it provides weapons, training and financing to them now in Ukraine. What’s really stupid is that people of the 21st century are ready to fall for another WW, the one that will see them and the entire populations of the planet turned to dust. Their ignorance won’t be just reliving history but ending history!

    • Wahid Algiers

      “The US has always worked with Nazis”. Wrong guy. They captured them to get their worldbest knowledge. And one point more: jews/zionists started WW2 and will start WW3 when people do not pay attention.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        The US was working with the Nazis prior to WW2. After the war, yes they protected some of them and used them for their knowledge even putting them into the security apparatus of other countries.

        Many causes leading up to ww2. Invading Poland and the subsequent declaration of war by France and Britain would be the actual wars beginning, but the causes leading up to it had been building for quite some time.
