My government has voted against a United Nations general assembly resolution condemning the glorification of Nazism.

Only three countries voted against it: Canada, the U.S. and Ukraine. The gutless E.U. nations abstained.

Little on this can be found in major western media outlets. It seems they have their walking papers from those in charge. This should be a major embarrassment to the government for taking this outrageous position. How can they square their support for Israel and not support this resolution?

They have not only abandoned veterans who are suffering a multitude of problems but are abandoning those who fought against Nazism in WWII. They should be ashamed of themselves.

The position of my government makes a mockery of the values of a civil society. This is an obscene gesture to the millions who have died at the hands of Nazi thuggery and all those who fought to defeat it nearly 70 years ago. The ugly head of Nazism is rising in Eastern Europe, and my government is not doing a damn thing about it. In fact they are giving this evilness life when it needs to be stamped out.
