Friends, you may have noticed in your neighborhood or among your circle of friends that people are tripping over themselves to demonstrate solidarity with Ukraine, and to shake their proverbial fists at Putin and Russia. As I opine on this week's Newsmaker Show, however, a lot of this support is purely verbal and/or symbolic, and little of it helps Ukraine to resist the Russian invasion. And, more to the point, there are hard limits to the West's commitment to Ukraine that belie our brotherly sentiments. We won't fight for or in Ukraine; we won't give the Ukrainians heavy weapons; we won't place sanctions on Russia's most important export to the West, natural gas; and we won't commit to bringing Ukraine into NATO or the EU now, soon, or ever. Ergo, I conclude, that the West's Ukrainophilia is mostly a face-saving gesture.
In addition to matters Russia-Ukraine-related, Brian and I also cover the hubbub surrounding Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter and rising tension between Musk and the Left/media. We also talk over the shocking leak of a draft Supreme Court decision to invalidate Roe v. Wade and thus to return to the states authority over abortion. The violation of the norms of SCOTUS is unprecedented, but not unexpected, because the Left seems happy to burn down all of our institutions and our rights if it means they get their way. As for abortion/abortion rights, I hope the draft decision stands, because it's about time that we breathed some life into our beloved Constitution!
Check out this week's broadcast. You'll be edified...TO THE MAX!!!
In other news, do you have Amazon Prime and/or do you buy things or services from Amazon on a regular basis? If so, then I hope you like Marxism, and I hope you love abortions, because that's included in the price.
Lastly, here's a great article about the meaning of the word "racism" and how leftists are using and abusing it these days. The author is absolutely correct: we cannot allow the Bolshies to redefine every word in the dictionary to their liking. According to them, to be "anti-racist", you have to be racist (against whites). And, if you believe in "non-racialism" or "equality", then you're actually a racist, even if you don't know it. It's time to stop playing these semantic games and show a little respect for the English language!
