On December 16th, a Russia-proposed resolution was passed at the UN, condemning the “glorification of Nazism”.
This same action was undertaken back in 2019.
And the vote passed, with 51 countries that abstained, including all EU member states.
Other than that, the two countries that voted “No” were the same as in 2019 – the United States and Ukraine.
Just two countries voted against the Russian resolution on “Combating the glorification of Nazism & neo-nazism” at today’s #UNGA75.: Ukraine and the US.
Whatever about Ukraine. But America? It now hates Russia so much that it refuses to condemn Nazism just to spite Moscow? pic.twitter.com/HxNHOueYWV

There are various reasons to consider here.
For example, Ukraine more than likely rejected the vote because pro-Nazi and neo-Nazi groups are quite spread throughout the country, notably in the volunteer battalions which are filled to the brim with Nazis.
These groups are represented in the Ukrainian parliament, and it is not uncommon for these groups to be accused of war crimes and torture during the hot-phase of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.
At the same time, these same Nazi-infested factions and groups also frequently attack or threaten opposition figures, so they government has no reason to deal with those who guarantee them staying in power.
The United States, very obviously rejected the proposal in support of Ukraine and to oppose Russia. Of course, it can’t admit that it offers any sort of support to Nazi-infested groups who are refusing to allow a peaceful resolution in Eastern Ukraine.
As such, the reason for the rejection is given as that forbidding the “glorification of Nazism” clashes with its First Amendment protection of free speech.
The United States gives the same reason every time it rejects the resolution.
On November 18th, almost exactly a month before the vote, the United States mission to the UN issued a statement on why it would reject, but still said that Nazism is “widely scorned by the American people,” but even “avowed Nazis” are protected by the First Amendment.
It also accused Russia of using the resolution to lend weight to its “disinformation narratives” about neo-Nazism in its neighboring nations. Notably, that it wasn’t true Ukraine’s volunteer battalions and other groups were filled with Nazis, and that photographs of them wearing Nazi uniforms, and being covered in tattoos of swastikas and other symbolism are not evidence enough.
“The United States joins the world community in commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. We honor the valiant contributions and the heroism and sacrifice of allied nations and their service members in the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945. We also join the international community in condemning the glorification of Nazism and all forms of racism, xenophobia, discrimination, and intolerance. In fighting against the murderous tyranny of Nazism, the United States also fought for the freedom, dignity and human rights of all – including our steadfast commitment to freedom of expression.
oday, however, the United States must express opposition to this resolution, a document most notable for its thinly veiled attempts to legitimize longstanding Russian disinformation narratives denigrating neighboring nations under the cynical guise of halting Nazi glorification. The United States Supreme Court has consistently affirmed the constitutional right to freedom of speech and the rights of peaceful assembly and association, including by avowed Nazis, whose hatred and xenophobia are widely scorned by the American people. At the same time, we steadfastly defend the constitutional rights of those who exercise their rights to combat intolerance and express strong opposition to the odious Nazi creed and others espousing similar hatreds.”
Basically, Nazism and the Nazis are condemned, but they’re “okay” to gather and express their ideology.

USA have invested in Ukrainian nazis and bandera followers for almost 80 years – of course they dont want to condemn glorification of Nazism…
No they havnt.
NUmber one is USSR collapsed themself and that included Ukraine. Nazisme is an old thing in Russia and for good historical reasons made by Old Russia and well assisted by armed Force by the Bolsjevics.
You can only blame USA and others, that we dont prefare communists back and therefore has to support or not attack, what they have there.
We are not like the Bolsjevics, which after the civile war there after WW1 starved millions to death because they didnt like Communisme very semilar to Tzarisme.
Tzarise, Communisme, Bolsjevisme and Nazisme iis same kind of dirty stuff made for few people running the whole business for own benefits.
Can’t you get a spellchecker? And someone to check your grammar? The majority of your posts, like this one, are completely incomprehensible.

I write back if You ask.
LSD + cocain a bad mix… Lay ot down son…
No need for all that bollocks,the US and Ukraine refused to condemn Nazism,end of story.
As written I also dot think nazismen should be forbidden. They can and should be reduced by less need for them. Thats hard work. They has to be inside the Constitution, and thats it.
They are given excuses for growth if they can be seen as victims under pressure.
You dont decide whats end of a story here.
I just did,if it was up to me Nazis would be shot on sight.
I kind of dont blame You, but Ypu dont kill the idea unless You kill the reasons for it.
There is no reason for that level of hate and violence towards other peoples and races.
STFU you idiot. Do you really belive the BS you write????
Im not like You. I know facts and by that makes better belkieves as well.
jens confusing bad cheese with reality; Jenny developmentally delayed SF mascot here for adult amusement
Nazisme is allowed in Denmark as long as its inside the constitution. Being in the open w all see them and therefore hardly any vore for them.
The constitution alread dont allow attacing others, so nazis are covered too.
To me as a private person the Russian resolution only make those Nazis feel more imported and needed. Thats what contrasts often go.
It by that seemes Russia support the contrast remain making them some control.
CIA troll bot is broken again..
What? The Nazis in your country feel “imported”? From which country? “It by that seemes Russia support the contrast remain making them some control” – lost you there. Broken random phrase generator?
He is Danish or so he claims but I can see it from this writing (used to see). I blocked him so I can’t read what he wrote.
“imported” yeah Denmark, “At the outset of World War II in September 1939, Denmark declared itself neutral. For most of the war, the country was a protectorate and then an occupied territory of Germany. The decision to occupy Denmark was taken in Berlin on 17 December 1939”.
Russia at that time were highly allied with the Nazis, which hardly could have attacked Poland and France with no first class suppluy in Iron, nikel, coal and food from Russia for industrial know how.
Even the few danish communists was clapping in their little red hands until Barbarossa.
Facts were, that many countries in Europe acrually folowed Chamberlein and also by only has very smal military forces.
Danes should have defended them as poles did. The Polish army not many ears before that had defeated the Red Army and retaken land of their own.
Becauew of them the Bolsjevic even has made the Stalin Defence line all the way from Murmans to Odessa. Russia was the only ones, which lost WW1 three times – Very impressing.
u despicable LGBT liar. USSR never allied w Nazis—only after France, UK refused to ally w USSR vs nazis did Stalin agree to non-aggression pact w Germany…false idiot…WWI Germany, Austo-Hungary, Bulgaria, Ottomans vs Russia, France UK…who won WWI idiot? not USA that only sent troops 5 months before armistice…your LSD induced delusions suggest that your consulting psychiatrist has failed to provide you enough electroshocks
Correct,some people just love rewriting history to support their narrative,as for the first world war it was a slaughter house,more than thirteen thousand men from my town and the area died in that war,both my Grandads came home,one disabled for the rest of his life with a shrapnel blast in his leg,the other one survived being shot fighting the turks only to die after the war from malaria,he was only thirty five.
They were not highly allied with Germany,they signed up to that pact because the West wouldn’t form a pact with the Soviet Union who saw what a threat Nazi Germany was,what it did was delay the day when two million German troops were on Russia’s western border. border
Adolf Hitler invented Nazism in a Germen Jail in 1923.
…And of curse You are completly lost. If You grow very old and are explained many times, You might find out, Ypu are the lost one.
Im not even Ukrainian. I just descriebe the base for Nazisme in Ukriane, as there and it rapidly grew because of narinalistic farmers and feudals.
But Nazisme didnt exist, when the Bolsjevics killed and killed there as well as starved millions to deat and tortured and displaced too.
Thats written completly away in Your higly populated history books just as it ir for all the taken Neocolinies and border movements before, under WW2(Motov line) and after WW2 all the way to a wall west of Berlin in about 1962 – So Eric Honnecker would not be the only person left in DDR.
People here believe, what they have learned in school. Yesterday one was angry abput the red-whire flag used in Belarus. But facts are that area always has been poland most of the time and the flag was the Pilsuski for all Poland from 1919 until Sralain and Hitler again divided it until Staling moved it west and imported many Russians to it.
Now Europe us as it should be again.
Danes until the comunists had very good relations to the Baltic countries and also to Tzar Russia. That was closed down and kept in dark until about1991.
It very normal that reaction makes counter reaction. Its true in fysiks too.
Maybee this can be Ypur too advanced Christmas toy: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/47f6bcd67d0fdff8074e256a034ae7cd2693613df16ccf529e48d93b62b424f0.gif
Jens, you are writing gibberish. Find an English dictionary, please! Or stop taking drugs. Why do you write “You” with a capital letter? I’m not a god and neither is any of the other people here. In English, pronouns are only capitalized in the middle of a sentence when you refer to a higher power. completly, Ypu, descriebe, Nazisme, Ukriane, narinalistic, deat, completly, higly, abput, red-whire and so on are not English words. Your grammar is indecipherable. English is my second language also (I speak three languages fairly fluently and I’m ok in another two): It is acceptable to make an occasional mistake, but there is a point where people just cannot understand what you write, and you are far beyond that point.
As for the Nazis – there is no defense for what they did and what their ideology was based on. Any attempt to defend them, as people like yourself are doing here, should be viewed with total and utter contempt, disgust even. I fully support the renewal of this resolution each year, and those countries that abstained or voted against it need to do some serious introspection.
if u increase the Seroquel, add some prozac and learn how to produce better meth in your kitchen I suspect your neologisms will make better sense to the 9 year olds u play with in your village
Well it isn’t Poland now,Britain used to be Norman we don’t fly the French tricolor.
Your friend the new Tzar Joseph Stalin deiced that with his frinde named Adolf Hitler.
The did not https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/157859b414e39a1300f3d9f4a99123740f58596a53fcc5015700ac17c3d748a8.jpg

Mossadisis would be proud…
I hope so. They often could need some support.
If they need help, we wont send pigs:)
obviously u submissives that invited the nazis to colonize u, were required to abstain—you what you are told by Merkel and the new prez of the US regime, Harris
We expected to avoid war as we did in WW1. We also was best friends of Germany and not many nazis here. They hardly had votes to be in Our Parlament.
Our relations to fx Merkel and USA are well descriebed and not as You created by Your fingers below Your swetty bed blanket. Next time You should try to use the 7 armed candelabre there and not for spanking.
In America they do not condemn Nazism, on the other hand they condemn anti-Semitism whatever meaning they give to this term, consistency is certainly not on the side of the fucking Yankees.
In USA they have free choise by free debate and people dont for nazis by that. Nazis has to be inside the constitution or else they goto prison like anybody else.
Its very simple.
Antisemitisme is different. Its in or partly was in the Christian world by old religios traditions by the Jewish satelite by Roman King Herodes killed Jesus.
By being more and more sekular that has become less and less important as well as we try to be better in human rights for all – which includes both genders and also LGBTs.
So thats why …
LSD… Lay it down son…
the quality of drugs in dank village declining…”I no of no nation where there is less independence of mind and real freedom of debate than America”. Tocqueville “Amerika is not a nation for dissidents”. Richard Hofstadter “amerikan academia is far more effectively censored than was Soviet Academia”. G Derlugian (US magazine Jacobin 2018)
according to SPLC USA has at least 1100 organized “hate groups”—more than any nation even more than Denmark…USA incarcerates more per capita than any nation in history—they love freedom for oligarchs in USA
Because they are both commienazis.
Operation Paperclip wasnt such a stellar idea afterall…
You should also check out the Nazi brown book,its about all the former SS Gestapo and Hitler Judges who were still employed by the West Germans after the war. and Klaus Barbie the butcher of Lyon was employed by the CIA,when the Nazis fell they just transfered the third Reich to the US.
We dont condemn Hitler because the world has been told lies and completely misunderstand Nazism. Nazism was in reality a good ideology who was thinking on green energy, ecology, minority rights, clima change, gay marriages and pure races. Hitler and the Nazis were fighting against the swamp and the Deep State like I and Trump have been doing it for a decade now. Hitler and the Nazis were good people who allowed the Jews to travel and gave the Jews access to Jerusalem and a part of Israel. Hitler only attacked Russia to save the innocent Russian people from Communism and give them freedom. All you have heard about gas ovens are lies. It was Mother Theresa who did it. SHE gassed 6 million during WWII and not the Nazis as you have been told. Thats why we refused to condemn Nazism in UN because of the TRUTH! And this is also a fact and nobody can deny facts!!
Okay, what do you guys taking in today? But again if Hitler won we would be in different planets by now and leave the Zion be…I can see your point.
LMFAO so Nazism is not Anti-Semitic… Ohhhh Nazism is not Anti-Zionist…. But didn’t fat fuk Pompeo said…..Anti-Zionist is Anti-Semitic The fuk….
amerikans have always been nazis, racists—they hate free speech, except for jabbering neurotic neologistic drug induced rants from Jenny bacon and other CIA cave dwellers
Not because the US is nazi, but because they can use them as cannon fodder against Russia, they did the same with jihadists in the 80’s till now, this is their pathetic strategy because they don’t have the balls to face it alone without mercenaries
