Northampton, Mass. Protest Congressman Jim McGovern’s Vote to Support Nazis in Ukraine –by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
There will be a protest in front of Massachusetts US Congressman Jim McGovern’s Northampton office at 1:15pm Eastern Time this Tuesday, March 25, 2014; even if I am the only one there. I will protest his vote to support the Nazi coup Government of the Ukraine. If you don’t know why supporting Nazis is bad… http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2014/03/23/as-obama-administration-cracks-down-on-jews-in-ukraine-and-india-can-it-still-not-happen-here/
I’m announcing it because I believe the protest has to happen, and I believe that people of our Congressional District should protest Jim McGovern’s vote to back the Nazis. On the other hand, I’m not asking anyone else to show up, because I don’t know if protest is Illegal in these days of tolerating Neo-Fascism.
I don’t know if holding signs is Illegal. I will write some short sound bites on paper in a notebook and I’ll use that.
I chose the time 1:15pm because every Tuesday at noon just a few steps away, people meet to meditate, hope, opine, and pray that President Obama stops ordering Assassinations, which he does each week. Obama’s weekly sessions of Sentencing Suspects to Death are called “Politically Motivated Pre-Meditated Murder Tuesdays,” sometimes shortened to “Terror Tuesdays.”
The meeting begins at noon at First Churches of Northampton: 129 Main St., Northampton, Mass. It’s a short walk across the street to the protest in front of the Congressman’s office.
I was sorely disappointed to see that Jim McGovern (D-Worcester, MA), my Congressman, one of my favorite Congressmen of all time, and an admirable figure, usually; has now voted with the nearly unanimous majority in the US House of Representatives to endorse the UNC (Ukraine’s Nazi Coup).
I’m not going along with it. And, it’s not just me calling them Nazis, that’s what they named themselves.
While we’re at it, I will also protest Jim McGovern’s vote to endorse the CIA/DEA putsch in Venezuela: Marking the two coups as actually parts of a single larger CIA operation, to take over Fossil Fuels in and around Ukraine, while stealing the Oil from Venezuela’s poor:
The Petroleum of Venezuela belongs to the people of Venezuela, mainly the poor people, the 99%. McGovern’s vote to steal it for Venezuela’s already-wealthy Fascists will hurt the poor people of Massachusetts too:
That’s how poor people here keep from freezing to death in the wintertime: The people of Venezuela give – that’s right, give – Chevron Oil enough to supply free heat to Massachusetts citizens who can’t afford it on their own. But I guess that will end if the apparently mad Mr. McGovern gets his way.
Just 15 members of the US House voted against helping Ukraine’s Nazis. Only one Congressman voted not to steal Venezuela’s Oil, the heroic Kentucky Republican Thomas Massie. He is an advocate of Legalizing Hemp, so he knows that we don’t need to steal Oil, or use Oil, and that we could be Energy Independent in a few months if we switched from Petroleum to Hemp fuel. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/
