Boyd D. Cathey: FOX News, Ukraine and the Onset of the New World Order

No one cared about Ukraine three months ago.

Ukraine wasn’t in the top 50 issues that Americans care about.

The war has been going on there for eight years and 14,000 people had died in the conflict and “journalists” didn’t give a shit about dead civilians in eastern Ukraine. I’ve occasionally mentioned it over the years and have pointed out that it is sad and tragic, but we shouldn’t get involved. Now, the war in Ukraine is the most important issue in the world because Russia went all in on Donbas.

Lew Rockwell:

“I have been writing and saying in numerous essays and articles published since 2013 that Fox News (that is, the news portion of the media operation) serves as a propaganda voice for the Neoconservative globalists of the managerial Deep State.

That much should be clear simply by tuning in for just a few minutes to view Fox News’ over-the-top coverage of the Ukrainian conflict.

It’s nothing new.

Two prominent examples immediately come to mind. Both primetime announcer Bret Baier, author of a potboiler praising Ulysses Grant, and Brian Kilmeade, author of an unserious volume praising the collaboration of Abraham Lincoln and radical revolutionary Frederick Douglass, serve as a zealous “amen corner” for American intervention globally. (Both books were no doubt written with critical collaboration from “ghost writers”)

And who can forget the unbridled globalism (and anti-Trumpism) of the late Charles Krauthammer, and his boast that after the fall of Communism, “we now live in a unipolar world,” controlled essentially by American business and political elites and the US state department, and anyone who stands in our (their) way must be taught “a lesson in American democracy?”

Just as our Federal government had “saved” the Union in 1861-1865 by beating down those unprogressive racist Confederates and their traitorous leaders (e.g. Lee and Davis), so now America must go round the world to “enlighten” it about all the wonders and blessings of our form of liberal democracy.

Whether in Syria, where Fox was joined at the hip to the late John McCain’s frenzied calls for the United States to intervene against the legitimate and Christian-supported government of President Bashar Assad (as McCain stood on the ground arm-in-arm with ISIS-connected guerrillas), or its plea that American soldiers must stay in Afghanistan long after the imposed twenty-year US “experiment in democracy” had been deemed a failure, or now with its unbelievably propagandistic coverage of the conflict in Ukraine, Fox News is not adverse to employing disinformation and extreme emotionalism in the causes it advances.

As I do each morning, but only for a few disagreeable minutes, Tuesday  (March 15) I switched on “Fox & Friends.” The program ended with the network offering its viewers a performance by pop singer Vladimir John Ondrasik of his new “patriotic” song: “Can One Man Save the World?” As I listened to Ondrasik and the words of his song, the motivation and object were apparent: the embattled president of Ukraine, Volodymir Zelensky, has become the new “savior of the world,” indeed a near-perfect, holy, Christ-like figure, sent from Heaven to lead the peoples of the earth into a new age, annealed in democracy, freedom, and accompanying exaltation…despite the fact that the country he leads is probably the most corrupt and undemocratic in Europe.

And Brian Kilmeade, seizing the moment and deeply affected by Ondrasik’s cloying paean, almost genuflected in homage. Here was “the Abraham Lincoln of Ukraine,” leading his beleaguered nation against those awful pro-Russian secessionists in Donetsk and Lugansk provinces which have declared their independence from Kiev (the flag these states have adopted is modeled on the Confederate Battle Flag) and against the forces of the new Satan himself, Vladimir Putin, brooding and mentally-deranged, crouching in the dark recesses of the Kremlin. …”

Here are some of the episodes over the years in Ukraine that have caught my eye:

New York Times:

“Ukraine was born a year ago in the pro-European protests that helped to drive President Viktor F. Yanukovych from power. And today, the spirit that inspired hundreds of thousands to gather in the Maidan, Kiev’s Independence Square, is stronger than ever, even as it is under direct military assault from Russian forces supporting separatists in eastern Ukraine.

The new Ukraine seeks to become the opposite of the old Ukraine, which was demoralized and riddled with corruption. The transformation has been a rare experiment in participatory democracy; a noble adventure of a people who have rallied to open their nation to modernity, democracy and Europe. And this is just the beginning.

This experiment is remarkable for finding expression not only in defending Ukraine’s territorial integrity from the separatists, but also in constructive work.

One drawback is that the new Ukraine is a well-kept secret, not just from the rest of the world but also from the Ukrainian public. Radical reforms have been hatched but not yet implemented. …”

In 2015, George Soros and Bernard-Henri Lévy published a joint op-ed in the New York Times pleading with the West to save “the new Ukraine.” BHL has been spotted on the ground in Ukraine now.

A few years ago, we heard that “Ukraine is run by miserable Jews” and this was long before Zelensky became president in 2019.

AFP:

“Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) – Ukraine’s pro-Russian rebel chief on Monday branded the country’s leaders “miserable” Jews in an apparent anti-Semitic jibe.

Alexander Zakharchenko, leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, claimed that Kiev’s pro-Western leaders were “miserable representatives of the great Jewish people”.

“I can’t remember a time when Cossacks were led by people who have never held a sword in their hands,” Zakharchenko told a press conference in the eastern rebel stronghold of Donetsk, in a reference to Ukraine’s nationalist forebears, the Cossacks.

Zakharchenko said that the country’s historical nationalists “would turn in their graves if they could see who is running Ukraine.” …”

The Donbas separatists see themselves as fighting the Jews who control Kiev. Ukraine has been synonymous with corruption for years now.

  1. Russia is fighting the Glorius Fight against N A Z I S in the Ukraine that Putin Who Is Totally Not a Jew Puppet keeps bringing up. Because the kikes would never have Their Guy bring up N A Z I S at every opportunity so that the goyim never forget about Muh 6 Gorillion and then the goyim would think this is a Glorious War against N A Z I S instead of Putin just displaying typical shitbag Russian behavior.

    • If you think that Ukraine are the “good guys” and not controlled by the New World Order, and instead its Russia who is controlled you are a fucking moron.

    • Satan’s asshole. Jewgle Judensau if you want a laugh. Martin Luther was making these observations 5 centuries ago.

      • Indeed. Wrote a whole book on the subject late in life after decades of trying to present them with the gospel, which they of course completely rejected. Wonder which of the various flavors of Lutheranism have declared it to be verboten. ECLA is now basically a woke witches’ coven so we know it’s ungood there, Missouri and Wisconsin synods remain but don’t know what their stance is.

  2. My default position on this, aside from my general opposition to wars that I have no specific interest in, is that the United States government will NEVER voluntarily allow a state to secede from its tyrannical grasp, even if the citizens of that state overwhelmingly, and democratically, favor secession.

    Ukraine is effectively a state that seceded from Russia when the Soviet Union collapsed. On principle I favor the right of Ukraine to maintain sovereignty as an independent state. It is not my business to oppose that, if it is their wish. However, I understand that the United States government has no interest in Ukrainian independence that isn’t a corrupt interest. Their “interest” in Ukrainian “democracy” is only a blunt tool to wield against Putin and other “rogue” nations that do not play by “our” (their) rules. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO REAL INTEREST IN THE FREEDOM OR DEMOCRACY OF UKRAINIAN PEOPLE. They would crush any and all attempts at American states attempting to secede and create an independent state (democratic or otherwise). Their imperative is NOT democracy. Their imperative is forcing their vision of Globohomo on everyone else. This is why I do not care about Ukraine. My support in this case would equate to approval of American imperialism and globohomo. Russia might have imperial designs, but at least they don’t seem to be globohomo imperialism.

  3. BHL is a demon. Everywhere he goes death and destruction follow. He loves GloboHomo Shopping Mall Democracy.
