Jochen Hellbeck on Poroshenko, Law and Historical Memory

What is needed here is an exercise in honesty! Is or was Mr. Hellbeck a supporter of the Coup Government like BHL, Timothy Snyder and the his propaganda in the New York Review of Books, Anne Applebaum, Black Widow Victoria Nuland and her confederate Amb. Pyatt? Or R2P zealot Samantha Power? The list of rationalizers/apologists for the Coup, who fostered the notion of Freedom Fighters rather than Nazis, has eventuated in Poroshenko, as successor to ‘Yats’, and this law  governing ‘historical memory’ ! The keening and breast beating has begun with Mr. Hellbeck! The Coup another example of American/EU/NATO murderous political adventurism, that has a denouement in this ‘law’ that exposes the actuality of what President Obama, and his collection of Neo-Con/R2P harpies have wrought in the name of ‘Freedom’!

Just a reminder:

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
