Obama characterized gun-toting demonstrators as peaceful
February 19, 2014
EU Commission boss Jose Manuel Barroso said today his fellow globalist apparatchiks believe now is the time to impose sanctions on the government of Ukraine.
“We… expect that targeted measures against those responsible for violence and use of excessive force can be agreed by our member states as a matter of urgency, as proposed by the high representative/vice president (top EU diplomat Catherine Ashton),” Barroso said in a statement.
According to vice president Joe Biden Yanukovych’s government bears “special responsibility to de-escalate the situation” and called on Ukraine’s government to address the “legitimate grievances” of gun-and-brick wielding protesters.
Germany has yet to mention sanctions, but said “Yanukovych clearly bears responsibility for the escalation of violence.” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier characterized the violence as “appalling.”
France’s socialist president, Francois Hollande, expressed “deep indignation” at the violence. “Everything must be done to stop the violence. Some individual sanctions must be considered by the EU,” he added.
“We must be clear: Ultimate responsibility for deaths and violence is with President Yanukovych. He has blood on his hands,” said Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt.
Finally, over at the United Nations, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said violence in the country is “unacceptable.” The spokesman for the globalist organization, Martin Nesirky, said “Preventing further instability and bloodshed is a paramount priority.”
Video posted on Russian websites show the sort of violence the above leaders and bureaucrats did not touch upon. It shows “activists” and “protesters” shooting rifles and handguns at police. The video also shows “friends of the United States, in effect, friends of liberty,” as former UN ambassador John Bolton called the demonstrators yesterday, heaving paving stones at cops, knocking them to the ground and kicking them.
Russia, of course, is not merely a bystander in this conflict. However, the sanctimonious grandstanding on the part of the United States and the European Union while ignoring the deadly violence of the “peaceful protestors,” as Obama characterized the gun-toting attackers, demonstrates supreme arrogance and hypocrisy.
