Blog post: Reactions to the Russia-Ukraine conflict so far. The good, the bad, the completely unhinged

The most terrifying time during this war for the American public was in early March. Media war propaganda was on full blast. No transcripts available of Putin’s speeches anywhere. The Kremlin’s web site was down in America so even if you wanted to hear what Russia had to say, you could not get that information. During that time, the American public was completely at the whims of the media and the warmongers in our government. 

No dissent allowed. No common sense allowed. Do not trust your eyes, ears, and instincts when it comes to this war. Russia is monstrous. Ukraine is righteous. 

But as the saying goes, common sense prevailed. it did not take people long to figure out that Volodymyr Zelenskyy is not nearly as heroic and saintly as Western media wants to portray him. 

He’s just an actor who is ready for his close-up:

In America, the most unhinged warmonger during this conflict has been Michael McFaul, former ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama. On any given day, McFaul is both the most vicious and most flippant in calling for more weapons to Ukraine and gleefully cheering for the destruction of Putin and Russia. 

Nine times out of ten, when McFaul talks about Putin, he’s just talking about himself:

Here is McFaul’s first reaction to Putin recognizing the independence of Donetsk and Luhansk, regions that have been shelled by Ukrainian forces for eight years as has been recorded by the OSCE.

This was before the Russian military actually entered Ukraine.

Even though Neo-Nazism in the Ukrainian military is well-documented, McFaul also gleefully and spontaneously calls for more weapons to Ukraine.

And this week, he brushed aside forays for peace and understanding and instead calls for — of course — more weapons. McFaul’s position means death for everyone else, as long as his privileged and petulant attitude won’t have to die.

A look around at other warmongers

The usual warmongers also sprang to action after Putin’s announcement on Feb. 21, so threatened they were at any country or individual stepping outside what they are expected to do.

Here’s Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who immediately called for sanctions against Russia on Feb. 21. More than a month later, it is now obvious that sanctions have no effect and have only hurt America’s economy. 

Not to be outdone by Cheney, former Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton also sprang into action. First order of business, deflecting criticism from the Democratic party.

What does former President Donald Trump have to do with a conflict happening under the Democrat President Joe Biden? 

Then, lassoing in another country — China — for some more fearmongering and warmongering:

By April, Clinton realized the American public has rejected the notion of Trump and China having anything to do with Russia-Ukraine, so it was on to another country, Saudi Arabia:

Clinton is obviously better at partisan politics than she is at foreign policy.

The self-serving

The warmongers among this country’s political leaders were not the only ones who reacted swiftly and intensely to shore up their narcissism.

Hollywood showed up in force with ribbons for Ukraine at the Oscars. Here is actress Jamie Lee Curtis flashing her ribbon on the red carpet, and dropping as many names as possible on Instagram.

Curtis wants “solidarity” with the corrupt government and Neo-Nazi military of Ukraine, and its president who is constantly pushing the world into an all-out war?

Not only actresses, but social media figures also got in the attention-getting action. Tanya Posobiec, the wife of Jack Posobiec, who supports Trump and is one of the most influential figures of the “MAGA Twitter” crowd, had this to say on March 8:

That day was also International Women’s Day and as Posobiec would know, TikTok influencers in Europe were taking a break from the war and indulging in some luxury. For Posobiec, that was apparently the day to shame women and Russia — as well as try to sic the MAGA crowd on China, which has no control over luxury markets.

Because of her husband, Posobiec has been invited to speak at MAGA events, such as Turning Point USA. Posobiec also has shied away from discussing the role of her own country, Slovakia, in the turmoil in Europe.
