One Kalensky m.o. in common with other ‘Atlanticist’ trolls — knock down straw men:
Make up claims people didn’t actually make (the Nazi collaborator was Freeland’s grandfather not father), then ‘debunk’ them — Bellingcat/Bellingcrap’s Eliot Higgins did the same thing with his ‘people claiming 7-year-old Bana Alabed the girl from Aleppo didn’t exist’ crap, when what skeptics doubted was her ability to tweet in ENGLISH from a war zone

The EUrobureaucratic Mice Who Roared: Demonstrating ‘Independence’ from Washington By Joining the Establishment’s 24/7 Infowar on the Presstitute-Besieged Trump White House
As it stands today, Mr. Kalensky and his team seem hellbent on confrontation with the new U.S. Administration through deliberately exceeding their original EU mandate to focus only on Russian-government sponsored ‘propaganda’, and instead attacking and trolling the American President and his prominent U.S.-based supporters like Austin, Texas-based talk radio host Alex Jones. Perhaps this is being done if nothing else to demonstrate after years of Russian allegations that the EU is nothing more than a pathetic vassal of Washington, that the Brussels mice can independently roar. Of course, the ‘independence’ demonstrated by EU Stratcom East’s public face smearing the President of the United States as a Russian agent or a threat to democracy happens to be totally in lockstep with the bulk of the Washington/New York Establishment, which loathes alt-media hosts like Alex Jones or outlets such as Russia Insider that @EUvsDisinfo smears.

It turns out, what matters when it comes to EUrobureaucratic vassalage to Washington isn’t who is in the White House, but what the Council on Foreign Relations or the Atlantic Council and perma-bureaucracy aka the Atlanticist ‘Deep State’ want. Which apparently, is to defend Angela Merkel’s Chancellorship to the last drop of ink and lie — if not to the final drop of blood as during the ‘stand fast’ Fuehrer orders to the Wehrmacht on the Eastern and primary Front of World War II…
On American Alt-Right ‘Nazis’ with Jewish Friends Who Give Speeches vs. Ukro-Nazis Who Beat, Arrest, Torture and Kill People — Which Ones Do MSM Say Are the Bigger Threat?

In this Standing Globalist Propaganda Order, if you are a German who says #MerkelMussWeg, or an American or Hungarian who happens to sympathize with that slogan, you’re ether a Nazi Alt-Reicher who deserves to be punched in the face like Richard B. Spencer or a ‘useful idiot for Putin’. Or perhaps both, since Spencer is married (for now) to Alexandr Dugin’s U.S.-based translator Nina Kouprianova.

If we had the opportunity, we’d ask Jakub Kalensky whether any Ukrainian politicians who’ve glorified various collaborators with the Third Reich or used their SS Das Reich division/Wolfsangel symbols, like the Azov Battalion’s fuehrer Andre Biletsky, are overdue for getting punched in the face themselves. Because whether you love or hate Richard B. Spencer, he has peacefully expressed ideas, not advocated for violence. No one personally linked to him or his friends — unlike members of the Azov/Right Sector UkroNazi battalions — have kidnapped, tortured or killed people opposed to them. Even the pro-NATO/Kiev regime Financial Times, admits these people are dangerous and not firmly under Kiev’s formal chain of command:

To be fair, the vast majority of Ukrainians have and want nothing to do with neo-Nazism, and hardcore idolizers of WWII era collaborators Stepan Bandera or the UPA mass murderers of Poles represent less than ten percent of the Ukrainian adult population, if that. Our point is, EU Stratcom East attacks ‘Russian propaganda’ for correctly pointing out the strong influence the ultras and neo-Nazis like Azov or Right Sector had in society after the Maidan ‘revolution’ and their status as heavily armed shock troops used to crush anti-Kiev dissent in the Donbass. But if you have right wing nationalist views — even if you go out of your way to be friendly towards Jews and Israel like France’s Marine Le Pen, the Dutchman Geert Wilders, or members of Germany’s PEGIDA movement do — you are a fascist or right wing extremist...because you oppose Merkel’s open borders policy and the U.S./EU policies of hostility toward Russia.

Just One Example of How Kalensky and @EUvsDisinfo Lie or Botch Facts in ‘Drive By’ ‘Debunkings’ of Alleged ‘Kremlin Propaganda’ Written by Aussies/Americans
After years of dismissing RT and Sputnik as non-entities no one watched or read, then hysterical propaganda anointing these outlets capable of nudging Trump to the White House, we now have the EU, Germany and other European states essentially establishing ministries of truth not only waging information war with the Russians, but attacking President Trump’s agenda around the clock as well. In the course of doing this, Kalensky and his crew are also indulging in falsehoods, smears, and innuendos.
For example, the latest EU Stratcom East Thursday, January 26, 2017 dispatch which attacks Moscow-based Australian citizen reporter John Helmer and American expat-led outlet Russia Insider without naming them gets simple facts wrong. The Canadian Foreign Minister’s Ukrainian grandfather, not her father as the EU Disinformation Review reported, is accused from Polish and U.S. archives of having eagerly collaborated with the Nazis against the Poles — just like the grandparents of many of the Ukrainian nationalists in Lvov who are Jakub Kalensky’s friends:

The irony of this situation is that, twenty five years after the end of the first Cold War and while ‘the West’ allegedly finds itself in a second Cold War with ‘Putin’s Russia’ if not China, the real that appears to be heating up is within the West. Between what some call ‘Atlanticism’ which is really globalism, and Trump’s more nationalistic approach which has been hailed by European politicians from Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban to opposition leaders Geert Wilders of the Netherlands, Marine Le Pen of France and Beppe Grillo of Italy’s 5 Star movement.
Great Job Merkel! You Made Germany Which Had Been One of the Safest Places in the World a Country Where Many Young Women Don’t Feel Safe Walking the Streets Alone at Night
As during the first cold war when attempts were made by Senator Joe McCarthy and others to link all leftist movements to Moscow with varying degrees of success and truthfulness to the allegation, today’s ‘nationalist international’ is being attacked as a plaything of the Kremlin. Yet it appears to us individuals such as Mr. Kalensky have either failed to factor in the possibility of a real backlash to their increasingly shrill and hysterical state-funded propaganda, or truly desire to pick a fight with the incoming Trump team in order to pose as martyrs for free speech when they lose U.S. (but not EU) taxpayer funding.
Either way, as the legacy media circles the wagons around German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her criminally reckless open borders policy and doubles down on US/UK/EU taxpayer-funded smears of the Trump Administration, a backlash is coming. Whether that will involve a Trump/Tillerson State Department making damn sure to let Jakub Kalensky and his Brussels bureaucrat bosses know they’re not getting a penny of American taxpayer money or invites to State Department events. Perhaps Breitbart.de reporters will be personally paying Kalensky a visit with cameras at his Brussels offices to invite him to comment on the record. Whatever happens, we’re getting our popcorn ready, and Msrs. Kalensky and his team can’t say we didn’t see a ‘clash of civilizations’ between his Russophobic Trump-hating EUrobureaucracy and The Donald’s Deplorable nationalist international coming!
