LaRouche Activists Confronts ‘Squad’ Congressmen over Supporting Ukrainian Nazis

Oct. 2, 2022 (EIRNS)—Today’s broadcast of the Jimmy Dore Show, with 1.07 million YouTube subscribers, posted a video of the intervention by LaRouche movement activist and Sare for Senate campaign staffer José Vega at Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s (D-NY) Sept. 27 town hall meeting, at which Vega took on Bowman for his support of funding Nazis in Ukraine.

Dore played the video of the confrontation between Vega and Bowman, and then displayed entries from Vega’s Twitter account describing his encounter with the Congressman. Bowman is a member of the so-called “Squad” in Congress of supposedly progressive Democrats, whose hypocrisy Dore despises. Bowman, like all the other “Squad” members, consistently votes for multibillion-dollar funding to arm the Ukrainian military, which is heavily saturated with pro-Nazi militias.

Bowman shared the stage with Vega’s Congressman Rep. Hakeem Jeffries. In 2013, Jeffries wrote a letter to then-Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Olexander Motsyk “in response to rising levels of anti-Semitism and racial intolerance in the Ukraine that is spearheaded by the fast-rising Svoboda political party.” The Svoboda party, originally the youth group of Social National Party of Ukraine, modelled on Hitler’s National Socialist German People’s (Nazi) Party, dropped the swastika in 2004 and rebranded itself as “Svoboda” in 2004. It is closely aligned with Ukrainian pro-Nazi militias, such as the Azov Battalion, which Bowman and Jeffries are now supporting Congressional funding for providing weapons.
