I watched Ukrainian President Volodymyr (Vladimir?) Oleksandrovych Zelensky’s speech, and was shocked by how bad it was.
I had heard the man speak several times before, and knew that he speaks English imperfectly but well. But instead of him, we got to hear a terrible, female interpreter, speaking with a heavy accent, translating a Ukrainian speech. Then, towards the end, we got to hear the man himself in English.
It was a pandering speech. Zelensky wove in Pearl Harbor, 9/11, and Martin Luther King Jr. Pearl Harbor and 9/11 were specious analogies, as they were sneak attacks, while the Russians could be seen amassing men and weapons on the Ukrainian border for weeks.
As for King, to any American with a working brain and heart, any mention of him is the opposite of inspiring.
Zelensky said that he is not asking America to send “men and women” to fight for the Ukraine. Women do not fight wars. Thus, he was pandering to America’s msm feminists and manginas.
Zelensky said that if Biden wants to be leader of the free wold, he must do more. Fake President Joseph Biden could never possibly be “leader of the free world.” As a dictator, who is only in the White House via The Big Steal, he is not even the leader of America. And as America is a dictatorship, and was a failed state for many years before that, it is not part of the free world, to begin with, although President Trump did evoke some of that old-time religion.
Because I live in a dictatorship with controlled media, I get so little reliable information, whether it be about the China Virus/vaxx or the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, I am unable to formulate policy proposals, or even make rational personal decisions (e.g., on whether to get the jab). And because I live in a dictatorship and a failed state, my opinion and consent or refusal to consent to governmental actions are meaningless.
With that said, I wish President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people all the best.
