those Ukraine protests everyone is getting excited about

thanks to Brian Whelan at Channel Four for being to my knowledge the first mainstream English language journo to point out that the protests in the pro-European protests that lots of people (like in the Guardian) are getting very excited and positive about, have integral involvement from far-right anti semites and neo-Nazis.

The BNP’s allies Svoboda are playing a leading role in the protest movement, on the platform and have done from the begining.

There is a worrying tendency for many on the left to cheerlead exciting uprisings and protests in distant lands without bothering to examine the underlying politics or motivations of movement leaders (for example the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt), but this is an example of liberals doing exactly the same thing.
