Opening Bell

“…freedom has many manifestations but the most important for many is the ability to work for your benefit, for the benefit of your children and the want of your country. Ukraine is a story of a future victory and a chance for you to invest now in projects worth hundreds of billions of dollars to share the victory of us… This will be your victory and a new success story for your companies.”
—Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Ukraine, 09.06.2022

I’ve seen some pretty goddamn unctous fotos in the news in my time, but none quite as revulsive lately as this tableau featuring US stooge and Neo-Nazi Volodymyr Zelensky “virtually” ringing the opening bell via remote video link at the New York Stock Exchange — and none quite as apropos, given that shares in US “defense” industries are hitting the stratosphere, and Ford and IBM’s infamous collaboration with the Nazis.

As reported at Grayzone and Multipolarista, Zelensky’s economic “victory” is being won through the abolition of labor protection in a program not unlike that instituted by Pinochet in Chile in the 1970s, combined with some of that good old-fashioned globalized IMF/WorldBank “shock treatment”. Ukraine is “open for business”, the sonofabitch says — I don’t know about you, but when I hear one of these bastards talk about how his country is “open for business”, it’s time to look the hell OUT.

This crass stunt — along with Zelensky’s suppression of Left opposition parties and his repeated foto ops with Nazis — would actually indicate that this is pretty much par for the course on Wall Street, which never met a war (or a fascist) it didn’t like.

“We are pleased to welcome President Zelensky virtually to the NYSE bell podium, a symbol of the freedom and opportunity our U.S. capital markets have enabled around the globe. We are honored the President has chosen the NYSE to mark the kickoff of Advantage Ukraine and engage with the world’s business community.”

Meanwhile, in Miami…

By mike flugennockThursday - July 15th, 2021Categories: Trumpism, right wingnuts

Meanwhile, in Miami, the pro-Cuban “democracy movement” consists mostly of pissed-off gusanos who want their grandfathers’ casinos back.

Weird how this just keeps happening

And recently, the gusanos’ scrawny-ass rallies in support of the US-instigated Cuban “color revolution” have featured large numbers of the “Proud Boys” fascist gang — along with other assorted Trumpsters and January 6th insurrectionists — and the gusanos don’t seem to give a rat’s ass one way or the other, likely because they’re a bunch of fascists themselves. It’s so obvious at this point that you could hang a lampshade on it.

Just as in the 1930s — scratch an anti-communist, find a fascist.

Cops and the Klan, Hand in Hand

By mike flugennockSaturday - May 5th, 2018Categories: Black Lives Matter, Trumpism, right wingnuts

From Sacramento to Newnan to Charlottesville it should be clear to one and all at this point that the police are there to “protect and serve” corporations and fascists. Now, as always — cops and the Klan go hand in hand.

Liberal: You’re Next!

By mike flugennockTuesday - November 7th, 2017Categories: Trumpism, media

(apologies due: James Montgomery Flagg)

Now, anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m really not a violent guy by nature at all, but still – I couldn’t pretend I wasn’t enjoying watching Richard Spencer and other dapper US Nazi big shots being clocked in the street at foto ops. I mean, what the hell; these bastards bring guns to rallies, f’crissake, and Liberals get bent outta shape when some Antifa hangs one on Richard Spencer? Get a grip.

Still, you can’t punish the fascists without also going after the collaborators – and Liberal America is right at the top of most decent folks’ lists. I’ve always kinda hoped that once the Antifas get the Nazi issue punched out – look out, Liberals.
