If you’ve ever heard the doddering old fool Stephen F. Cohen being
interviewed by the creepy, reactionary John Batchelor on his WABC radio
show, you will get the same talking points repeated over and over—much
of them being the same sort of dark warnings about Russiagate being a
McCarthyite witch-hunt that Max Blumenthal pushes on Tucker Carlson’s
Fox News show.
For Cohen and Blumenthal, a key part of this “leftist” defense of
multipolarity keeps coming back to Ukraine that is depicted as a
geopolitical chess game between the evil NATO/EU forces on one side
lining up with Kiev and the good guys in the Donetsk People’s Republic.
From their rhetoric, you’d think it was 1940 and that an invasion of
Russia was on the agenda. If you are even vaguely aware of historical
materialism, you’d realize that the German bourgeoisie wanted to destroy
Bolshevism. And what would the motivation of the owners of Mercedes-Benz
be today? To bust down the walls blocking it from the Russian market?
