Here was the Ukrainian Minister of "Defense" (they use the same euphemism for their invasion-department, "Defense," as we do) who designed the ethnic cleansing program, describing the program that he had designed and put into place to do this ethnic cleansing.

Barack Obama is the first U.S. President to install a nazi (or racist-fascist) regime anywhere in the world. The fact that the racism is anti Russian-ethnic, instead of anti Jewish-ethnic, is immaterial: a nazi anywhere is still a nazi, regardless of which particular ethnic group he especially hates. (In Israel, the majority are anti-Arabic or "anti-Palestinian" Jewish nazis, just as dangerous as German or Ukrainian ones). That's even more conservative than any Republican President has done, or ever been: it's conservative fascism -- it's the true far-right, even if Obama's rhetoric doesn't sound that way.

A real Democrat is a progressive, and any "Democrat-In-Name-Only," or DINO (like Obama), has usually been merely a liberal (which he has shown that he isn't, really). A real Republican is a fascist, and any Republican-In-Name-Only," or RINO, has usually been merely a conservative (though few of those even exist anymore: they've become fascists instead). However, Obama now is reaching to the far right end of the political spectrum: racist fascism, or "nazism," because it suits his purpose in order to overthrow Yanukovych and make it stick. This should be considered a major achievement in the annals of political fraud, or fraud against the people who had voted the given politician (here, Obama) into political office. Fraud like this makes a mockery of democracy, because fooling the voters annihilates even the possibility of democracy. Obama has indeed been a master of the craft. Any Democrat who accepts him as being a "Democrat" is placing his own political affiliation to the right of where any previous U.S. President has ever been; and this wouldn't make sense, any more than would, say, a Republican who sees himself as being in the same political tradition as Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Elizabeth Warren -- it's ridiculous. Of course, if Senator Warren continues saying nice things about DINOs such as Obama and Clinton, then she too would have to be considered to be a DINO. But, we'll see what she really is. Maybe she hasn't decided yet whether Democratic oligarchs will no longer back anyone to the "left" of Barack Obama's policies. Maybe she's just another functionary.

Anyway, the real-world difference between a DINO and a RINO is zilch. If no one such as Elizabeth Warren seems to be, ends up challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, then the Democratic electorate will have been abandoned, at the Presidential level, there will be no meaningful choice in the 2016 contest, and (after the catastrophe of Obama's Presidency) that could well turn out to be the end of the Party.

In closing, it should be made clear here that even the downing of the Malaysian airliner in southeastern Ukraine should be considered to be an international war crime that Barack Obama himself is responsible for.

And here is why it's clear that "Obama Definitely Caused the Malaysian Airliner to Be Downed," and why this would be so even if it were not the case that "Obama's Ukrainian Stooges Did Intentionally Down that Malaysian Airliner." And, yet, Obama's ploy there, of getting the pro-Russian rebels to be blamed for this atrocity, which he himself had actually caused, has succeeded at producing his intended result, which was a step-up in the western economic sanctions against Russia (rather than against America). If Democrats can accept such a person as this as being one of them, then what would that say about Democrats (the Party of which I was proud to be a member, until recently, because being a Democrat meant something that I could respect, until recently)? How can any Democrat self-identify with (much less respect) a now barely closeted nazi, of any type or nominal party? (I, personally, won't be a member of any such Party, but I know that most Democrats don't happen to feel that way.)
