Tony Cartalucci sorts out grotesque double-standards when the regime being protested is a US client state puppet (Thailand) vs. when the regime is a US targeted enemy (Ukraine).

Bonus hypocrisy from the US State Dept. itself:

“We urge Ukraine’s leaders to respect their people’s right to freedom of expression and assembly…

We call on the Government of Ukraine to foster a positive environment for civil society…

and to protect the rights of all Ukrainians to express their views on their country’s future in a constructive and peaceful manner

Violence and intimidation should have no place in today’s Ukraine.””

Violence and intimidation of protesters holds a near and dear place in the United States itself though.  Are memories that short over at the State Department?

Much concern for the Ukrainian protesters — a large chunk of whom are neonazis, apparently, and many others are “color revolution” stooges of western imperial meddling, in other words: On The Payroll.   This is the same old story, and the US media is always complicit in selling Uncle Sam’s self-interested tall tales to the rubes.
