Late Tuesday night our Iranian nuke-loving State Department Secretary John Kerry issued a rather strong condemnation of the actions of the Ukrainian government in trying to quash peaceful protests:
The United States expresses its disgust with the decision of Ukrainian authorities to meet the peaceful protest in Kyiv’s Maidan Square with riot police, bulldozers, and batons, rather than with respect for democratic rights and human dignity. This response is neither acceptable nor does it befit a democracy.
Last week in Brussels and Moldova, I underscored publicly the importance of all sides avoiding violence and called on President Yanukovych to fulfill the aspirations of the Ukranian people. We put the government on notice about our concern.
Here in the U.S., this inspired a legion of entitled self-important hipsters from the flagging Occupy Wall Street movement to practice the only thing resembling a skill they might have: whining.

It's hard to take John Kerry's 'disgust' at the crackdown in Ukraine seriously if one remembers this: http://t.co/YyKK8gLRip

@RT_com Curious how the US would handle mass dissent. Hell, they dragged OWS protestors through the mud and chased Snowden across the globe.

@RosieGray I forget what Kerry had to say when riot police in US cities were crushing occupy movement?

Oh you poor things. Must be tough to feign outrage between ironic sips of Pabst Blue Ribbon while tweeting on your brand new iPad Air tablets (bought by dear mommy and daddy).
