So by now you’ve probably seen this insane conspiratorial rant from Nancy Pelosi regarding calls for a ceasefire.
It’s about Putin’s message.
I think some of these protesters are spontaneous and organic and sincere.
Some, I think, are connected to Russia.
And I say that having looked at this for a long time now.
Do you think some of these protests are Russian plants?Nancy Pelosi
For one, in what world would Putin benefit from a ceasefire?
Putin wants us distracted and embroiled in other conflicts so that we’re overstretched and not focused on Ukraine.
As we’re seeing now, it’s much harder to get Ukraine funding passed because we’re also trying to get funding for Israel.
Supporting Israel with everything we’ve got is exactly what Putin wants, so if anything it’s the establishment that’s more in line with him.
In a larger point though, this just goes to show
How Disconnected the Democratic Establishment is from its base.
The truth is, and the thing that no one wants to admit, is that it’s both Republicans and Democrats that think in terms of America first.
This may be a new concept, but progressives simply prioritize humanity.
I mean, three American soldiers get killed, and that’s horribly tragic.
But we bombed the shit out of the Middle East in response.
27,000 Palestinians die, and they get a three day pause.
All humans have value, and I don’t understand why so many have such a hard time with that principle.
And most of these people, including Nancy Pelosi, are Christians, and that’s supposed to be THE principle.
What you’ll hear in response is, You’re not being realistic.
Without American strength, things would be much worse for innocent people.
And what I would say back is,
No, that’s not true, but even if it was, it doesn’t matter.
If you do in fact believe in a higher power, then why are you trying to control everything?
Imagine what the US could be and what the world would be if we took all of those resources that we pour into defense
and put it into things like humanitarian aid and the Peace Corps and lifting up impoverished countries so that they’d be long-term allies.
Would we not have been more prepared for things like a worldwide pandemic and been able to save millions of lives?
The establishment is thinking about the world completely backwards.
People like Nancy Pelosi try and control with death.
Progressives simply want to lead with love.
And you can call that naive, but I think it’s a hill that most of us are willing to die on.
