Why go the extra step to tell us that Ukraine is a model democracy when it’s not at all?

The United States cannot be a beacon of freedom, of light in the world, if we are not free.

Tucker contrasts Ukraine’s “democracy,” which is banning opposing political parties and news organizations, with what we should hold on to here in the United States. Highlights include:

“What exactly is democracy? Well, pluralism is the hallmark of it. In a democracy, citizens can have any opinion they want to have. They can express any opinion they want in public whenever they care to express it, including through mass media. If citizens are dissatisfied with their political leadership, they can challenge their leaders for office.”

“Now, all of these things are true in every free country in every period, always. These are not just features of democracy, these are prerequisites for democracy.”

“So, with that in mind, you should know about a political party in Ukraine called ‘Opposition Platform For Life.’ Over the weekend, the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, banned that party.”

“Having banned all opposition, he then seized control of the country’s media outlets. Zelenskyy signed a decree that combines all national television channels into a single platform that he controls. He described this as a ‘unified information policy,’ and it certainly is unified.”

“So, if all of these details seem shocking to you, if this is not the Zelenskyy you’ve heard about on the Today Show, then you may not have been paying attention to Ukraine. Zelenskyy has been solidifying complete control over Ukraine for a long time.”

“What we care about, what all Americans should care about, is what happens here in the United States. The United States is a beacon of hope and freedom to the rest of the world. How do we maintain that inspiring position? Not simply by sending people missiles, but by remaining free ourselves. The United States cannot be a beacon of freedom, of light in the world, if we are not free. So, that’s the first thing we do if we want to inspire and change the world, Ukraine included … is make sure that we stay free.”

“Why go the extra step to tell us that Ukraine is a model democracy when it’s not at all? Why are they doing that? Maybe because Ukraine has now has exactly the sort of ‘democracy’ they’d like to see here in the United States.”

“So, maybe you’re starting to conclude these people love Zelenskyy not because he represents the Ukrainian people, but because Zelenskyy is exactly the leader they would like to be, with wildly expanded war powers to make everyone who complained shut up at gunpoint.”

“So, murdering POWs is a war crime, so is castrating them, we’re not shocked by this. This happens in a lot of countries, Ukraine is not unique. Atrocities happen during war, every war, always, no matter what the neocons may tell you.”

“But this is a war that we are paying for. This is a war with moral implications. This is a war the White House is involved in at every level. So, when the Ukrainian government does something, we have an interest in knowing exactly what it is and what it means. But more than anything, we have an overriding interest and a moral obligation to keep the United States free.”

“So, when you see them admire someone who’s shutting down any opposition to him, you should pause.”

Martha’s Vineyard Hypocrisy

The ones who claim to be the ‘best people’ are actually the worst people.

Published

on

Tucker’s coverage of the recent visit some Venezuelans made to Martha’s Vineyard continues. Highlights include:

“Those brief hours our Venezuelan brothers and sisters spent on Martha’s Vineyard changed history and left what they’re calling ‘an indelible mark’ on the people who lived there. ‘They enriched us,’ said one resident, ‘we were happy to help them on their journey.’ Unfortunately, as it turned out, that journey ended abruptly at a military base on Cape Cod where our Venezuelan brothers and sisters are being held against their will.”

“The people of Martha’s Vineyard knew this was going to happen, and yet none of them thought to tell their Venezuelan brothers and sisters before it happened.”

“Fifty brown people was too many for the people of Martha’s Vineyard. They called in the army to have them removed, like trash, as one island resident said. So actually, judging by their behavior and not simply by their lawn signs, which is the best way to judge people, the people of Martha’s Vineyard are not especially compassionate. In fact, they’re small-minded, and cheap, and pretty nasty, as any waiter or babysitter who works on the island can tell you. So, once again, the ones who claim to be the ‘best people’ are actually the worst people.”

“Actually, the people of Martha’s Vineyard, the residents there are the ones who did the tricking. They tricked the Venezuelans into going to a military base. But that wasn’t deception, no. According to Elizabeth Warren it was an act of love.”

Obama’s DOJ allows record crime in Chicago

George Soros backed a prosecutor named Kim Fox who turned Chicago over to the most vicious people who live there.

Published

Tucker takes a look at how even the good neighborhoods in Chicago became gang run dystopias. Highlights include:

“Imagine dystopia. You hear that word frequently, what does it mean? Picture it in your mind’s eye. Dystopia is a world where the police will not protect you. They refuse.”

“And at the same time, you are not allowed to protect yourself.”

“So, who does that leave in charge? Who runs a world like that? Well, young men with guns. They’re in charge, the cruelest, most violent element of any society, the people with the least to lose. People like that have all the power. You have no power, and that means that everything you have is theirs.”

“According to reporting by CWB Chicago, just minutes after Ryan King was threatened with death for daring to walk outside in his own neighborhood, Chicago police spotted the gunmen’s vehicle, but there was nothing they could do about it.”

“Their supervisor ordered them not to pursue it, so the criminals just drove off, and of course they committed more violent crimes.”

“Police believe at least two organized armed gangs are now operating with impunity around Bucktown, which means the gangs are in charge now. That’s what the collapse of civilization looks like.”

“So, how did this happen? Well, it’s no mystery. There are many threads. But George Soros is a big one. Soros paid for this to happen. Soros backed a prosecutor named Kim Fox who turned Chicago over to the most vicious people who live there.”

“She’s not the only person who did this, the federal government also played a role. Over the eight years of the Barak Obama administration, the Department of Justice forced more than a dozen police departments around the country to enter into something called ‘dissent decrees.’ Chicago was one of them.”

“Now, all of these decrees took the same form. They pronounce police departments guilty of racism if those departments disproportionally interact with African Americans, regardless of whether those interactions were legally justified. In other words, the law is entirely irrelevaNt to the dissent decree, and so is reality itself.”
