The U.S. Black Political Class and War

What passes for leadership is always a joke played upon Black people. The high water mark of the CBC being the “conscience of the congress” is long gone. No one can look to them on the issue of Ukraine or anything else. The people must restore the historical Black radical consensus as a matter of survival.

What should Black people think about the United States manufactured crisis in Ukraine?

The most important being that Ukraine’s current troubles began with a U.S. regime change operation in 2014. The Barack Obama administration and NATO overthrew the elected president and sided with right wing neo-Nazi groups such as the Azov Battalion and the Right Sector.

Of course destabilizing Russia was always the goal and should be immediately suspected whenever former Soviet republics experience any upheaval.

{To sum up, Black people should know that the U.S. has instigated this entire affair and any statements made by Joe Biden, his spokespeople, or his foreign policy team must be disregarded.}

Quite frankly, I'm baffled to why any African American would join any branch of service. It's simply a matter of supporting the same oppressive structure they're caught in. Both in regards to foreign affairs and domestic. I was contemplating joining the marines when I was in high school after the military sent recruiters to our school. I've always had a thing for the Marines. Being the introvert I am I shied away from it though. So grateful I did today. Knowing what I know about the collective ruling class agendas and that time period, the only possible positive to come from the potential to have ended up in Central America would only be to have met Robert Parry, who I've learned so much from over the past several years.

{Who is the “we” that Meeks refers to? Putting Black people in the first person with colonizers and imperialists is a sure sign of Black political class handiwork. He couldn’t possibly have meant the neo-Nazi Ukrainians put in power by the U.S. He went further though with even more fallacious reasoning and a disgraceful analogy:}

{It isn’t clear how Dr. Martin Luther King became part of the Meeks fairy tale. King opposed the U.S. war machine and interference in the affairs of other countries. Yet his name is sullied by cynical politicians like Meeks to make the case for the kind of actions that King condemned.}

{Gregory Meeks was always a CBC lesser light, but what of the members who were once reliably progressive? Barbara Lee of California is well known for being the only member of congress to vote against the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. She is now a shell of her former self, unable to speak out even mildly against the U.S. threat to peace.}

{Lee and Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal created a joint word salad on the topic of Ukraine: “We continue to watch Russia’s threatening behavior towards Ukraine with alarm.}

Let me repeat this. The aggressors were the Ukrainian military with their fascist elements as they attempted to move into the region against Russian speaking citizens, outlawing their religion and declaring their language as illegal. Essentially waging a genocide. Without this action there wasn't a war or Russia moving troops near the border. Who's threatening the border and people living near it?

NPR has been in the region all week conducting interviews with people in the region. As recent as the past 2 days having actually moved into the active zones. As I stated last weekend, their interviews, if closely observed and knowing the real history, have provided a number of contradictory statements from a substantial number of citizens in regards of the false narratives being pushed. Same type of comments came from the active zone. People are simply tired of the war and wish it to end.

{In 2003, only 4 of 40 CBC members voted in favor of the authorization for use of force against Iraq. Nearly 20 years later, after going along with Obama’s invasion of Libya and now protecting another democratic president, the traditional anti-war consensus of Black people has been whittled down to nothing.}

That 40 also included a vote from the glorified John Lewis who once march beside MLK. Knowing that war was based on lies. Against everything MLK spoke against, Lewis went out in vanity on MLK's coat tail as a loyalist to the ruling class.

{Colin Powell was the most prominent Black face in a high place before Obama was elected president. As Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and later as Secretary of State he was a key player in the first Iraq war, the invasion of Panama, the kidnapping of Haitian president Aristide, and of course making the case for a war of aggression against Iraq.}

After Powell's death there was a long list of his achievements going back as far as Vietnam detailing his adventures into becoming a ruling class loyalist also. The WMD show was on parr for his loyalty.

Crisis or Confusion? A Brief Guide for Black Folk on the Situation in Ukraine

African people are already battling against U.S. rightist forces - from the Trump/Republican supporters to the warmongering neoliberal democrats. It would be an affront to our history and people to enter this struggle on the side of empire and NATO.

Within large sectors of the U.S. left, including many elements of the Black left, there is widespread confusion related to the Ukraine “crisis.” Years of anti-Russia propaganda from the US and its NATO allies, and the tendency to abstract the current Ukrainian situation from its historical and geo-strategic context, have created a climate of confusion. This climate has played into the hands of state propagandists and democratic party activists eager to use the Ukraine situation to deflect attention from Biden’s disastrous domestic agenda.

The situation with Ukraine did not just fall out of the sky in 2021. It has a long history.

Tough on foreign policy without actually going to war? Well, sanctions are a form of war, especially for some smaller countries. They provide a false perception of genuine action on larger countries, towards the indoctrinated.

{…storm troop-like assaults on gays, Jews, elderly ethnic Russians, and other “impure” citizens are widespread throughout Kiev-ruled Ukraine, along with torchlight marches reminiscent of those that eventually inflamed Germany in the late 1920s and 1930s. And that the police and official legal authorities do virtually nothing to prevent these neofascist acts or to prosecute them. On the contrary, Kiev has officially encouraged them by systematically rehabilitating and even memorializing Ukrainian collaborators with Nazi German extermination pogroms and their leaders during World War II, renaming streets in their honor, building monuments to them, rewriting history to glorify them, and more.

This is the nature of the government in Ukraine that the Biden Administration along with the corporate press, deranged Black people, and a confused left are supporting.

Below is an alternative set of facts and analyses related to the Ukraine crisis, a “crisis” deliberately generated to divert attention away from the Biden’s administration inability to provide capitalist stability.}

  1. The coup government was infected with Ukrainian ultra-nationalists and with political ties to literal fascists such as the “Right Sector” and the Azov battalions . The coup plunged Ukraine into crisis because substantial sectors of Ukrainian society did not support it, especially sections of predominantly Russian speaking Ukrainian citizens in the Eastern portions of the nation. Those Ukrainian citizens rejected the legitimacy of the coup government and began to voice support for independence from the neo-Nazi government that took power. The response from the illegal coup regime was to label its own citizens “terrorists” and attack the Eastern portions of the country militarily. In other words, they attacked their own citizensa crime that the Obama administration pretended was the excuse for U.S. subversion in Syria.}

Those crimes are why those inflicted citizens voted in the current president, seemingly under a false sense of security he would create change. They have been highly betrayed. As we found out last weekend, the government has gone to the lengths to award citizenship to anyone who would come to Ukraine, as they're willing to also arm citizens, who will help to enforce their fascist rule. We'd have a lot of representatives to replace (happily) and Trump supporters to send over to help out.

Lets get that party started! [wsws.org]

😟 The Azov Battalion was incorporated into the National Guards of Ukraine, the armed forces of the Ukrainian state, and today is reported to be being trained by U.S. Special Forces. 😟

{As an African people involved in an existential battle in the U.S. against rightist forces, from the Trump/Republican supporters to the warmongering neoliberal democrats, with both committed to global “Full Spectrum Dominance” (white power), it would be an affront to our history and people to enter this struggle on the side of empire and NATO.}

Any sense of genuine democratic socialist working class stand with you!
