¿Yoko Ono? La culpa de todo la tiene la CIA

Ya que el otro día me refería a los supuestos movimientos rusos en Ucrania no puedo por menos que mencionar que también hay quien cree que todo el movimiento opositor en el país es obra de la CIA y del dinero americano. En un interesante artículo en el Washington Post (requiere registro), Anne Applebaum, analiza someramente el fenómeno y lo asocia al famoso antiamericanismo patológico que resultará familiar a tantos y que explicó tan bien Revel en "La obsesión antiamericana". Quiero destacar en particular el último párrafo:
"The larger point, though, is that the "it's-all-an-American-plot" arguments circulating in cyberspace again demonstrate something that the writer Christopher Hitchens, himself a former Trotskyite, has been talking about for a long time: At least a part of the Western left -- or rather the Western far left -- is now so anti-American, or so anti-Bush, that it actually prefers authoritarian or totalitarian leaders to any government that would be friendly to the United States. Many of the same people who found it hard to say anything bad about Saddam Hussein find it equally difficult to say anything nice about pro-democracy demonstrators in Ukraine. Many of the same people who would refuse to condemn a dictator who is anti-American cannot bring themselves to admire democrats who admire, or at least don't hate, the United States. I certainly don't believe, as President Bush sometimes simplistically says, that everyone who disagrees with American policies in Iraq or elsewhere "hates freedom." That's why it's so shocking to discover that some of them do. "
