It's fascinating how the racists, bigots, white nationalists and anti-Semites at Rebel News who shrieked hysterically how forcing the "Freedom Convoy" occupation of Ottawa to take down their hot tubs and bouncy castles and go home was outrageous fascism and dictatorship and a military overreach and the obvious death of Western democracy are now downplaying actual military aggression and fascism simply because Russia is doing it.

I'm sure you're shocked.

And that's what we mean by "Russian asset."

Not sure how this will play out. The Trump wing of the Republican Party - the CPAC/Tucker crowd - simply echo whatever Trump says as their moral compass, and adjust every other aspect of history, politics and human decency to accommodate his views. In the case of the Ukraine, that's boiling down to "Putin bold and resolute, Biden weak and waffling, and who cares about the Ukraine anyway?"
That position (which is insane)seems to be deepening the rift between the CPAC faction and those Republicans still in touch with reality.
And while the Rebel would normally be lapping up and shitting out whatever Trump says, they seem to be taking a reasonably pro-Ukraine stance - probably because that's the position that will allow to complain incessantly about how Trudeau's not doing enough/doing too much/doing the wrong thing, which is really their only editorial position on anything.

Can we start a GoFundMe campaign to send Dave Menzies to the Ukraine so that he can swagger up to them Russkis on the front line and demand and interview with Putin?
