Lenin had his Useful Idiots – and so do we.
They are called “conservatives.”
Almost in lockstep, they have lined up behind Biden – and everything behind him – now that those behind Biden have brought out Putin. The Russian Bogeyman is almost as effective as “the virus” at getting “conservatives” to lick the hand of people like Biden and those behind him.
Putin bad! Ukraine good! It’s as simple – and as simple-minded – as that.
These idiots – with no grasp of history and no understanding of the man’s legitimate grievances, provoked by the Left they claim to oppose – will become very useful to Biden and those behind him, who will use the Threat of Putin to Democracy and Little Children in just the same way that the threat to granny posed by “the virus” was used – only more effectively, because “the virus” lacked the element of patriotic dementia, the disease which addles so many usefully idiotic “conservatives.”
This malady will be used to get them back in line, where they belong – where they can always be counted on to be whenever the flag is humped, often to the accompaniment of that odious anthem “conservatives” love so much about how “free” they are.
How deep does the stupid go?
Let’s try to gauge the fathoms.
First, this business of Putin rearing his head – right on cue, just as the mania over “the virus” fades. Along with the mandates in even the bluest of blue states such as California and Oregon, which just this week dropped the mandatory Face Diapering of all kids in all schools, which had been in virulent force just a week prior.
They used to at least give us an intermission of a few years in between “emergencies.”
Second, this business of Putin being the latest “threat” to . . . well, everything. Kind of like the way Americans would probably be threatened by Mexico joining the Warsaw Pact and Russia being able to station troops and missiles on the other side of San Diego, in Ciudad Juarez.
Yeah. We’d abide that.
Just as we did the Russians sidling up to the coast of America, via Cuba, back in 1962.
But Putin – Russia, actually – is supposed to abide NATO sidling right up to her equivalent of Ciudad Juarez, via the Ukraine – which the Western powers assured Russia would never become part of NATO.
This is insane – or something much worse.
Anyone not entirely an idiot understands that the prospect of Ukraine joining NATO is an even more obnoxious and even more alarming prospect for the Russians than the hypothetical prospect of Mexico joining the Warsaw Pact would be for Americans – especially American “conservatives.” While Mexico has never been part of the modern United States, Ukraine has been part of Russia for most of both their histories.
America braying at the Russians over the Ukraine is surely beyond galling to the Russians given how America dealt with states that tried to leave America.
Not to mention what America did recently in Iraq – which was Blitzkrieged in a manner that was remarkably like Operation Barbarossa – an event still sour in the mouths of most Russians and about which most Americans are idiotically ignorant of or soporifically indifferent toward.
What’s 30 million (give or take) dead Russians?
It’s a lot, to them – and those who remember them. The Russians have damned good reason to be paranoid about a threat snuggled up right next to their borders and it is beyond exasperating that so many “conservatives” denounce not only Putin but those who point out that Putin has a point. And that he is being goaded – with what seems almost to be a deliberate intent to provoke him (and thus, war).
Which, should it widen, will then be used to characterize anyone who points out who provoked it as being Putin’s poodle and an “enemy of freedom” (here we go, again). It could transform the Biden Thing from America’s version of Leonid Brezhnev into a “war president” – like The Chimp – and anyone who questions him (and those behind him) on any point of doctrine as not only dangerous but possibly even treasonous.
Canada just showed where this can lead.
And we’re being led down the same road, by some of the same people – who are too idiotic to realize how extremely useful they are.
