“The Nazis Even Hitler Was Afraid Of” is the headline on an article published March 16 in OpEd News by Ukrainian-based author George Eliason, who documents the barbaric history of the “Ultra Nationalists”—Nazi followers of Hitler collaborator Stepan Bandera—whose descendants now run the Ukrainian government with the backing of Barack Obama.
Lest anyone miss the point, Eliason places at the top of his article a picture of the obscene embrace between John Kerry and illegitimate Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, then adding that “The Banderas, or Banderites, are activists in the Ukrainian Ultra Nationalist movement that is now in control of the government in Ukraine. Under the militant leadership of Stepan Bandera in World War II, the ultra-nationalists organized the Ukrainian Waffen SS Galician, Nichtengall, and Roland Divisions that collaborated with the Nazis and were responsible for the genocide of over 500,000 people.”
“Following the war, however, Ukrainian Nazis were the only group to escape trial at Nuremberg for crimes against humanity,” thanks, Eliason should have added, to the British. “Moreover, neither the Banderas, the Ukrainian Waffen SS, nor any other Ukrainian collaborators have ever apologized for their participation in genocide.”
In the book Genocide Committed by Ukrainian Nationalists on the Polish Population During World War II, author Ryszard Szawlowski reported that “the Germans have long admitted to their crimes, and have apologized for them publicly.” But, “Ukrainian genocide committed against the Poles during World War II surpassed German and Soviet genocide …. [It] was marked by the utmost ruthlessness and barbarity, and … up until the present day, it has been denied or, at best, presented with reminders that all is ‘relative’ or other such evasions.”
Eliason continues: “What else separates the Banderas from every other genocidal perpetrator of the war is this: Even though the German SS had units dedicated to genocide, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) approached this mission with a zeal and barbarity that Hitler’s own units could not muster. They routinely tortured people with saws and axes, and used the most painful methods they could devise as means to kill them.” [emphasis added]
Obama’s impeachment cannot come too soon.
