Another Right-wing wacko popular with the Left

Like John Laughland, Eric Margolis is a Right-wing crank who has found favour with the Left because he is anti-Bush. This is classic right-wing Romantic Nationalism -
Ukrainians, at least western Ukrainians, are a distinct, effervescent people of high culture that brought civilization and Christianity to Russia. Ukraine's Cossack origins imbue this feisty people with a fierce love of freedom, a rejection of authority, a profound romanticism, and a dashing spirit of adventure that make them seem more French than East European.
Those western Ukrainians, not like the uncivilised eastern Ukrainians.
