If anyone still doubts that @scotthortonshow & @DanielLMcAdams are on the Kremlin payroll, listen tothis BS: http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2014/june/18/ethnic-cleansing-coming-in-east-ukraine-mcadams-speaks-with-scott-horton.aspx … #Ukraine
There are Kremlin agents in the libertarian movement.
Let me clarify why I think McAdams is on the Kremlin payroll. His message always matches that of the Kremlin. When Putin was still denying an invasion of Crimea was underway, McAdams wrote a ridiculous peace that the Russian military is their legally based on the fact that they were leasing a base, much like the US leases a base in Cuba, never mind the surrounding of Ukrainian military bases, killing of two Ukrainian soldiers, seizure of Ukrainian navy vessels. Later, Putin admitted his military was in Crime prior to the referendum. The cognitive dissonance was designed to create hesitation and confusion while the military acted. McAdams was part of this.
Before and after Crimea, both Putin and McAdams insisted that the protests and Ukraine’s governments were Nazis. Nevermind the statements my Ukraine’s Jewish community or the widespread use of swastikas and bellamy salutes among the Russian mercenaries in Ukraine (http://romaninukraine.com/russian-nazis-in-ukraine-collection-of-links/). Nevermind that the supposedly radical party in Ukraine got 1% of the vote. The goal of their propaganda is to create cognitive dissonance and hesitation — the make it hard for other people to declare support of Ukraine’s government or to praise the successful revolution which deposed a hideously brutal and corrupt regime. (American libertarians can learn from this!)
Now Putin is looking for an excuse to invade. Russian media has published footage from Syria, claiming they are atrocities committed by the Ukrainian army. They’ve published footage of their own massacres in Chechnya and Georgia and claimed it was the Ukrainian Army. They’ve even published snapshots from movies. Here’s a list (http://romaninukraine.com/russian-nazis-in-ukraine-collection-of-links/). As, always, McAdams repeats the latest Kremlin propaganda. They’re looking for an excuse to invade, and he’s trying to give them one by echoing the propaganda of military perpetrated atrocities.
The reality is that the Russian mercenaries have resorted to widespread torture and kidnappings. People aren’t feeling FROM the supposedly Nazi government, but from the Russian mercenaries. Human Rights Watch has commented on their use of torture, their xenophobia, and their use of intimidation. The Catholic press described the situation in Crimea as “total persecution.” Tartars have fled in large numbers. Earlier, a Tartar activist was tortured to death.
McAdams also ignores the wide variety of polling data that shows the vast majority of people in Eastern Ukraine favor a United Ukraine. (http://romaninukraine.com/collection-of-surveys-about-sentiment-in-e-ukraine/) McAdam’s claim that this is a local effort for autonomy is total, complete, cynical propaganda.
He’s a disguising human being. A coward, traitor and opportunist.
