Right-wing extremists condemned in Charlottesville, funded and armed In Ukraine and Syria

Having backed a right-wing coup in the Ukraine and right-wing terror groups disguised as “moderate rebels” in Syria, U.S. leaders now confront rising right-wing terror at home. They duly condemn it, but seem blind both to their own hypocrisy and to the domestic reverberations of their cynical foreign policies.

Part 1

Though rising tensions between the Trump administration and North Korea had dominated headlines for much of the past week, the chaotic events in Charlottesville swiftly replaced concerns about imminent nuclear war with concerns about the white nationalist movement and other associated groups.

On Saturday, white nationalists and counter-protesters dramatically clashed within the Virginia city, prompting a state of emergency to be declared after a young woman was killed by a car that plowed into a group of pedestrians. Since Saturday’s tragic and alarming events, a chorus of U.S. politicians from both parties have expressed their outrage, labeling the hit-and-run crash an act of domestic terrorism and condemning white nationalists as unpatriotic and “enemies of freedom.”

Among those professing their disdain for Saturday’s events were numerous senators, including Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and John McCain (R-AZ).

They, along with a host of other congressmen and former presidents, condemned the white nationalists as un-American and against American values, with some specifically labeling the car crash a terror attack. Other notable political figures, such as former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama, also condemned the attacks via social media.

While the chorus of condemnation against Charlottesville was near-unanimous, taken in a broader perspective, it seems that the outrage at and disgust with right-wing racism and religious extremism expressed by U.S. politicians is rather myopic, if not outright hypocritical. Indeed, many of the U.S. congressmen who spoke out against the activities of such groups in Charlottesville have supported – and in many cases still support – similar or even worse groups abroad, in countries such as Syria, Ukraine, and Venezuela, among others.

Apparently, such ideologies are condemnable only when they occur on U.S. soil.
