Who and what can you trust anymore? What “side” is it appropriate for you to be on depending on the situation? With the amount of actual mis and disinformation being peddled these days, both of those questions can be terribly difficult to answer. So what do you do? You take in facts as best as you can understand them to be true, hopefully apply common sense, reason and logic and come up with a deduction that you can live with.
And while the establishment media may report one narrative to you, words that come out of the actual subjects of the stories mouths speak volumes over what is reported. Whether you agree or not with what someone says, they haven’t said any different, so you can only go by the words presented to you that you’ve heard with your own ears or read with your own eyes.
It’s up to you to apply the methods above and make the decisions for yourselves.
That’s why it’s especially confusing when you hear someone like Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
It seems as though, during an interview with Piers Morgan for his "Piers Morgan Uncensored" show and published by the New York Post, that while Zelensky doesn’t really appear to care about the problems Americans face, he completely expects Americans to bend over backwards and care about the problems he and those in his country face.
Here’s a portion of what Zelesnky said during his interview with Morgan:
We are fighting for absolutely communal values. The war in Ukraine is still the war against those values that are professed in the United States and in Europe. Russian rockets can fly over a few thousand kilometers. And tomorrow they will have rockets that can cover tens of thousands of kilometers. What difference does it make? They kill civilians who do not agree with the politics of the president of Russia. So, this war here and now in Ukraine, and forgive me that I’m saying it so cynically, is for the safety of Europe.
As long as we are resisting it, the integrity of the United States will continue, therefore we are giving our lives for your values and the joint security of the world. Therefore, inflation is nothing, COVID is nothing. Ask those people who lost their children, their peace, their property at the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion. Who is thinking about masks and COVID? Who is thinking about inflation? These things are secondary. The most important thing is to survive and preserve your life, your family, and your country. Therefore, at the moment we are doing this job, but the West has to help us.
Listen, I generally agree with Zelensky that that "most important thing is to survive and preserve your life, your family, and your country." But, why do Americans have to sacrifice those things, which inflation and COVID directly impact, in order to help save a country that, up until about eight months ago was known for its corruption?
Plus, there's a few things highlighted above that pose problems in terms of the terminology Zelensky used.
“Communal values?” Is Zelensky trying to say that his values and the values of his country are also the values of the West? Communal is a term used by globalists to imply that we’re all fighting together and that one’s loss is everyone’s loss, while also implying that one cannot do without the other.
Except, the United States is an exceptional country — to the point that countries around the world have tried to adopt its “values” without really becoming “Western” in practice. The U.S. is often imitated, but never duplicated. Just look at the attempt the Russians have made to duplicate what fast food chain McDonald’s was before they took their business out of President Vladimir Putin’s country. It’s just not the same.
“Inflation is nothing?” Tell that to the people in literal food lines in the richest country in the world that just a couple of years ago were enjoying the greatest economic boom in the history of the greatest country to ever exist.
“COVID is nothing?” Tell that to however many people have actually died from that virus of Chinese origin.
“…the West has to help us?” Is the around $60 billion in money and military equipment the U.S. has cumulative given Ukraine not enough? How much more money does the U.S. taxpayers provide a country on the other side of the world before the title on the deed says, “Property of the United States of America?” I’ve asked this rhetorical question before, but how much money do we send over there before Ukraine becomes “Our-kraine?”
Zelensky seemingly acts like he and his country are the only people facing troubles in the world, ignorant of the fact that other people are facing hardships of their own. But, he and his wife, Olena Zelenska, have plenty of time to do a photoshoot and highly stylized video for Vogue magazine and meet with as many celebrities and establishment politicians as possible.
I’m all for standing up to evil. I don’t want to see anyone die, especially in needless wars. And let’s not forget, Putin is a bad man. That’s not up for debate. Just don’t automatically assume that the person the Devil is fighting with is an angel.
