Mass Killing in Buffalo and Washington’s Support for Neo-Nazis in Ukraine

Diane Sare of The LaRouche Organization is running for Senate in New York State against incumbent democrrat Sen. Charles Schumer, a leading proponent of the “war party” and the Green New Deal in the United States. She released a video statement on May 15, in response to the senseless slaughter of ten people in Buffalo one day earlier, by a crazed teenager, shown wearing one of the symbols made popular by the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion in Ukraine. The manifesto of the killer, Payton Gendron, references as his greatest inspiration Brenton Tarrant, the murderer of 51 Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2019 whose viewpoint was picked up by the neo-Nazi Azov grouping in Ukraine. The leader of the Rise Above Movement in the U.S., which participated in the 2017 riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, also described Azov as an inspiration. In 2018, the Congress banned the government from providing any “arms, training or other assistance” to Azov. And yet, that same battalion is now sponsored, armed and trained by the U.S. and U.K. governments, among others.

Diane Sare immediately interrupted her campaign tour to go to Buffalo, when she got word of the horrific mass shooting at a Top’s in Buffalo. In her video, she states:

First of all, let me express my deepest condolences and sympathy to the families and loved ones of the ten people who were killed in yesterday’s rampage, which never should have occurred. But I have to issue strong words about the situation. When you have a government which refuses to condemn Nazi atrocities committed by the Azov Battalion in Ukraine, but not only refuses to condemn them, but funnels them $40 billion worth of aid and weapons; when you have leaders of our elected government — that is, members of the House and Senate like Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell, going over to meet with President Zelenskyy of Ukraine, and supporting the narrative which is full of lies; when it is the Nazis committing the war crimes and the atrocities, not the Russians — we are provoking a nuclear war with Russia.

When you have Colonel Vindman saying that we should send Ukraine — Nazi elements in Ukraine — advanced weapons which can shoot missile strikes deep into Russia’s territory, then you have a government which has gone mad. And when the government has gone mad, it should not be a surprise when American citizens go mad.

I’m running for U.S. Senate against Chuck Schumer to put an end to this murderous madness. The only way this crisis can be solved is through negotiation. The relationships among nations must be governed by the commonality of the universal interests of mankind as a whole. Only then can we resolve these crises; only then will we see an end to the kind of horrific violence which was perpetrated in this city yesterday. So please, contact your Congressman; tell them to stop logistical and military support of a Nazi, racist agenda that will lead to World War III…”
