The New York Times is enjoying this.
“ROME — For years, a global choir of right-wing politicians have sung the praises of Vladimir V. Putin. They looked up to the Russian strongman as a defender of closed borders, Christian conservatism and bare-chested machismo in an era of liberal identity politics and Western globalization. Fawning over him was core part of the populist playbook.
But Mr. Putin’s savaging of Ukraine, which many of his right-wing supporters had said he would never do, has recast the Russian president more clearly as a global menace and boogeyman with ambitions of empire who is threatening nuclear war and European instability. …”
Among other things …
- I am pro-White
- I am pro-Christian
- I am a nationalist
- I am a populist
- I am antiwar
- I support states rights
- I am anti-imperialist
- I also reject modern liberalism
Shitlibs are anti-Russian.
They see anyone who disagrees with them as a Russian stooge. I’m not anti-Russian or anti-Ukrainian. Last time I checked, the Ukrainians were also Europeans and Christians, so when I look at this as someone who is already reflexively antiwar what I see is a great tragedy that ought to have been avoided.
The people who I blame the most for this is the foreign policy establishment who have 1.) pushed Russia’s back against the wall by expanding NATO to its borders in spite of years of protests and 2.) duped the Ukrainians into believing they were going to join NATO and that we would fight for them when the most likely result is that Ukraine becomes the new Syria and new battleground for yet another proxy war.
We already know how this goes from all the other devastated failed states (Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen) that these people have created under the banner of “democracy” over the past thirty years. These ghouls will be happy as long as the weapons flow and the money flows out of Congress and the blood flows in Russia and Ukraine.
