FTR #781 All’s Well That’s Orwell: The Ministry of Truth and the Ukrainian Crisis (Yuschenko Uber Alles)

The Orwellian aspects of the Ukrain­ian cri­sis could not be exag­ger­at­ed and are explored at greater length in this post. We have not­ed that Vic­tor Yuschenko’s term as pres­i­dent of the Ukraine–realized through the so-called Orange Revolution–featured the for­mer Yka­te­ri­na Chu­machenko as his wife. For­mer­ly Ronald Rea­gan’s Deputy Direc­tor of Pub­lic Liai­son, the for­mer Ms. Chu­machenko was a promi­nent mem­ber of the UCCA, the top OUN/B front orga­ni­za­tion in the Unit­ed States. While pres­i­dent of the Ukraine, Yuschenko presided over a fun­da­men­tal makeover of Ukrain­ian his­to­ry and, through that, polit­i­cal ide­ol­o­gy, paving the way for the pub­lic posi­tion­ing of the fas­cist Swo­bo­da par­ty as a viable, demo­c­ra­t­ic enti­ty.

Arrow Cross Redux: RIP Hungarian Democracy

For some time, we’ve report­ed on the dis­in­te­gra­tion of Hun­gar­i­an demo­c­ra­t­ic insti­tu­tions, as the coun­try slouch­es toward its Arrow Cross fas­cist past. (The Arrow Cross was the Hun­gar­i­an fas­cist par­ty that was allied with the Third Reich dur­ing World War II.) Now it appears that the obit­u­ary for Hun­gar­i­an democ­ra­cy is ready for pub­li­ca­tion.


Iranian City, Elements of Hungary’s neo-Fascist Jobbik Party Allying

An alliance of “Yock­eyite” or Third Posi­tion char­ac­ter has tak­en shape in Hun­gary. A city con­trolled by the Hun­gar­i­an Job­bik Par­ty and an Iran­ian city have announced a coop­er­a­tive agree­ment. Reca­pit­u­lat­ing Hun­gary’s fas­cist past to a con­sid­er­able extent, the Job­bik Par­ty on its sur­face would seem to have lit­tle in com­mon with Iran, oth­er than anti-Semi­tism.
