Joe Biden paid a surprise visit to Kyiv the other day Some people are pretty upset at the visit. The war hawks in Russia are pretty peed off about Biden’s visit. Nationalist Russian journalist Sergey Marden wrote,
“Biden in [Kyiv]. Demonstrative humiliation of Russia,”
One military hardliner wrote,
“Almost a year after the beginning of the Special military operation, we are waiting in the Russian city of [Kyiv] for the president of the Russian Federation, but not for the [President of the] United States.”
That is just a small sample of Russian reaction to Biden’s visit. But there was another group that seems to be equally upset. That would be the more right wing elements of the Republican party. The party of Reagan, who was as hard line against the USSR as anyone. There were numerous statements made by this lunatic fringe, but the tweet made by Marjorie Taylor Greene, pretty well sums it up.
“The U.S. support for war in Ukraine has been like a U.S. proxy war with Russia. But now it’s becoming more like a U.S.- China war through the Ukraine — Russia war. End it now!”
It has to be noted that Greene tweeted this on the same day that she suggested secession.
“We need a national divorce, We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s (sic) traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”
I do not know what you would call that, but I would call that treason. Interesting allies, Russian hardliners and a growing lunatic Republican fringe. Unfortunately the lunatic fringe is becoming more and more the Republican mainstream.
Maybe, people like Greene and her ilk are upset that Biden went into a war zone wehere there was NO US military presence. NONE! Meanwhile, the fringe’s leader, Trump, hid in a bunker during a protest in Washington.
