Remember during the summer of 2020 when left-wing domestic terrorists were burning down major American cities across the country only to be treated as merciful shock troops by the Democrats, many of whom donated to the terrorists’ bail funds?
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has apparently been inspired by the American left and is releasing his own prisoners to fight in the war against Russia.
Instead of a widescale race war fueled by establishment liberals, major corporations, and mainstream propaganda outlets fought here in the United States, Zelensky is allowing his criminals to fight a different battle.
Questionable behavior on the side of Ukraine is causing many conservatives to remain skeptical about Zelensky and his role in what appears to be a battle for Russian oil and Soviet-era influence. Western leftists have overwhelmingly thrown their support behind Ukraine, but it doesn’t appear they actually know why, other than opposition to Putin, the scariest right-wing boogeyman (other than Trump, of course.)
Russian leader Vladimir Putin announced a “special operation” in Ukraine last week, claiming it necessary to “de-Nazify” the country after he recognized the two regions that make up Ukraine’s Donbas – Donetsk and Luhansk – as sovereign countries.
Putin has yet to clarify the contradiction between his claim that Zelensky’s administration is run by “Nazis” and the fact that Zelensky himself is Jewish and the descendant of World War II veterans who fought against Nazis. However, video released yesterday showed Ukrainian soldiers engaging in racially charged battlefield behavior when they greased up bullets with pork fat in anticipation of shooting Russia’s Muslim Chechen soldiers.
Zelensky’s administration reacted to the invasion by immediately legalizing civilian open carry of firearms and distributing thousands of guns, automatic rifles, and other firearms. The Zelensky government has also encouraged civilians to amass Molotov cocktails in their homes to throw at Russian “invaders” and posted instructions for how to make them online.
On Monday, Zelensky announced in a national address that he had given the order to free Ukrainian prisoners “with real combat experience” and send them to fight in the “hottest” theaters of war.
“The decision was made, not simple from a moral point of view, but useful in terms of our protection. Ukrainians with real combat experience will be released from custody and will be able to compensate for their guilt in the hottest spots,” Zelensky said.

The president announced that, according to his government’s estimates, that over 5,000 Russian soldiers have died fighting Ukraine, urging Russian troops to disobey their orders and “leave.” The Russian government has not verified these figures and does not publicize death tolls on either side.
“Throw away your equipment and leave. Do not believe your commanders. Do not believe your propagandists. Just save your lives. Leave.”
Zelensky also announced that the Ukrainian government had tallied 16 children killed and 45 injured in the five days of war.
Delegations from both countries are set to engage in peace talks on Monday in Belarus, a Russian ally on Ukraine’s border. No mention from either side the results of Monday’s talks or if they’re still ongoing.
Is this “invasion” actually happening? Or is it a welcomed distraction for western liberals who’s leftism has failed to resonate with the people?
