Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky framed American patrons by showing the world that the United States officially supports Nazism. Thanks to him, SS lightning bolts flashed not only in Kiev, but also in the U.S. Congress.
During his trip to the U.S. in December, Zelensky met with President Joe Biden and also addressed Congress. After his speech, he handed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris a Ukrainian flag with slogans and wishes written on it. Attentive journalists noticed the SS lightning bolts among the handwritten messages.
Thus, the flag with fascist symbols was solemnly deployed in the heart of world “democracy” to joyful applause.
Why was it so, and how to understand the simultaneous U.S. support of BLM, LGBT and fascist ideologues, whose idols burned in the ovens representatives of other races, ethnicities and non-traditional sexual orientations? Sometimes one hears arguments that there is no fascism in Ukraine because the Ukrainian president is a Jew. But, this is an obvious manipulation designed to cover up the real reasons behind Washington’s actions.
Is the United States itself a fascist state? Even American experts are pondering this interesting question. It is indeed relevant, given not only support for the Nazis in Ukraine, but also the circumstances inside the country.
First, the obvious suppression of freedom of speech and dissent in any form is a bright marker. The media and social media have been placed under strict control by the federal government. It is only the official American propaganda around the world that tells beautiful stories about democracy and freedom, but the American establishment finds it acceptable to keep society within strictly regulated boundaries. Try to think wrong or speak out against the accepted narrative. There will be immediate sanctions. It is not for nothing that the FBI holds weekly meetings with the heads of social media platforms.
Second is the lack of free elections. The American electoral process has long been an expensive show business. It is a sheer platform for fraud with all indications in the form of completely non-transparent early voting, pressure on voters, registering “dead souls” in electoral rolls and other things.
Third, the most important sign of the fascization of the Washington establishment is the merging of state and corporate power. It is no longer possible to distinguish between private interests and state interests. The entire so-called elite is trying to subordinate both domestic and foreign policy to the interests of a certain ruling class. And if the big bosses tell everyone to repent in favor of BLM ideas, then everyone should do so. If they want gender diversity and LGBT, everybody has to listen, despite the opinions of some activists in Texas, for example.
Fourth, there is rampant militarism. The U.S. defense budget is breaking records. The military-industrial complex, including in connection with the Ukrainian crisis, is working at full throttle. With the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons out of force, a new round of the arms race is underway.
Under these conditions, the most difficult to comprehend are the ways to justify and inviolate the order established by the American rulers. After all, society needs convincing explanations. Here too, images of an external enemy and a nurtured sense of American exclusivity may come to mind. But this is not enough. For the scale of governance encompassed at the present stage, the most universal model is required.
It is no secret that the United States was one of the first to develop racial segregation laws, and its experience even served as inspiration for the lawyers of Nazi Germany in creating the regulatory framework of the racial state known as the Nuremberg Laws. To get to the heart of the racial problems of modern America, these circumstances are explored in detail in his book, Hitler’s American Model: The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Laws, by James Whitman, Ford Foundation Professor of Comparative and Foreign Law at Yale Law School.
Commenting on his research, J. Whitman noted, in particular, that American racial law was a model for everybody in the early 20th century who was interested in creating a race-based order or race state. America was the leader in a whole variety of realms in racist law in the first part of that century. Some of this involved American immigration law, which was designed to exclude so-called “undesirable races” from immigration. In 1924 American immigration law in particular was praised by Hitler himself, in his book Mein Kampf.
The author of the book pointed out that the German Nazis saw the United States as a kind of laboratory where experiments were being conducted to create mechanisms for legislative disenfranchisement of certain segments of the population. At that time in the U.S. these experiments were conducted on racial principles. The Third Reich was interested in discriminatory norms against certain ethnic groups, especially the Jews.
Whitman found out that the German Nazis faced a serious problem. They could not find a meaningful, reliable scientific definition according to which you could determine who belonged to which race. They came to the conclusion that it was impossible to have criminal statutes targeting Jews because it was impossible to define who counted as a Jew.
This was the main reason for the admiration of the Germans for the Americans. The framers of the Nuremberg Laws saw that the United States was engaged in the political construction of race. Americans used politics to form laws to justify a political system organized around race, despite the absence of any meaningful definition of that race.
In fact, the modern U.S. establishment has improved on the practices of its predecessors from the recent past. To reinforce the attitudes of the new political system, Washington has taken a legal approach to justifying discriminatory measures against the unwanted. In foreign policy or domestically, the disadvantage is carried out with the help of a universal formula, some rules, the existence and inviolability of which are ensured by the right of force and informational propaganda.
This explains the origin of all these “universal values”, “human rights”, “international rules”, “community standards” and so on. These are the reasons for supporting some and disempowering others. Such is American political racism.
