ZELENSKY: HOW NOT TO WIN GREEK FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE GREEK PEOPLE
This one was spotted by V.T. and P.T., both of whom are regular readers and article-spotters on this website, and I have to admit, for depths of Soros-like stupidity and in-your-face Sorosesque gall and insensitivity, this one almost takes the cake. I also have to admit that with this Ukrainian invasion theatre we've all been watching, I'm torn. Both sides to the conflict have ample historical reasons not to like each other, but it does seem to me as if the West in general and the USA in particular have been using the Ukraine rather like Perfide Albion used France prior to and during World War One: "We will fight the Kaiser and his Huns to the last ounce and drop of French blood and strength." Similarly, the USA appears to want to use the Ukraine in a similar capacity, fighting the evil-never-to-be-trusted-and-byzantinely-scheming-Mr.-Putin-and-those-shifty-never-to-be-trusted-Rooskies to the last drop of Ukrainian blood.
If human lives were not involved, the whole thing would almost seem to be one of those farcical Laurel and Hardy movies from the 1930s. Imagine, for a moment, what might happen if, for example, the Russians sent a Nikita Khrushchev look-alike in their delegation to the peace talks in Istanbul. Khrushchev, who was Stalin's henchman in the collectivization of kulak farms in the Ukraine - remember, the Tsars had emancipated the serfs in the middle of the 19th century and given them low interest loans to buy their farmland from the nobility - performed his task with uncommon zeal, re-enserfing the kulaks and shipping thousands off to gulags and starving many many thousands more, an activity that earned him the nickname of "the butcher of Kiev" among Ukrainians... Imagine sending such a creature in the Russian delegation to talk peace with the Ukraine.
The result would be predictable: the Ukrainians would probably withdraw from the talks - rightly so - and demand the removal of the offending party before talks would be renewed. Of course, the Russians would most likely not commit such a gaffe in the first place, nor contrive such a badly written piece of theater calculated only to remind and insult.
But in the past few weeks I've been watching this clown Zelensky - the current president of the Ukraine and someone to whom the western media has been busily trying to attach a hero's laurel wreath - with more than just a portion of disbelief. For one thing, I've wondered how a Soros shill like this man could end up as the president of a country, even one as corrupt as the Ukraine, and my tentative and putative answer thus far has been, "The corruption must be worse than I thought, and of epic Swampington DC standards and proportions." For another thing, I've wondered on more than one occasion if he's even in the Ukraine at all, and not taking a cue from Mr. Bidenenko, and doing all his appearances on a set in his basement at his dacha in Florida. Then there's his endless, and increasingly frantic, virtual meetings with various heads of state.
Which brings us to today's story and blog shared by V.T. and P.T.: Mr. Zelensky's recent "meeting" with the Greek parliament:
It turns out Mr. Zelensky featured a Greek member of the Azov battalion - a genuine bona fide Neo-Nazi unit fighting in the Donbass with the Ukrainian armed forces (though in my opinion there's little "neo" about such "Neo-Nazi" units, they're just plain old Nazis) - in his recent virtual address to the Greek parliament:
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been making a virtual world tour with video hookups to parliaments around the globe, as well as to the Grammy Awards and the U.N. Security Council, sometimes with troublesome results.
On Thursday a major row erupted when Zelensky brought along a Ukrainian soldier of Greek heritage from the city of Mariupol, who just happened to be a member of the neo-Nazi Azov Regiment. Greece was under Nazi occupation during World War II and fought a bitter partisan war against Nazism (later to be betrayed by Britain and the United States.)
With Zelensky in the screen, the man, who gave only his first name, told Parliament: “I speak to you as a man of Greek descent. My name is Michail. My grandfather fought against the Nazis in the Second World War. I am born in Mariupol and I am now also fighting to defend my city from the Russian nazis.”
Alexis Tsipras, leader of the main opposition party, SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance, blasted the appearance of the Azov fighter before parliament.
“Solidarity with the Ukrainian people is a given. But nazis cannot be allowed to speak in parliament,” Tsipras said on social media. “The speech was a provocation.” He said Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis “bears full responsibility. … He talked about a historic day but it is a historical shame.”
Former Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras called the video being played in parliament a “big mistake”. And former Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Kotzias said: “The Greek government irresponsibly undermined the struggle of the Ukrainian people, by giving the floor to a Nazi. The responsibilities are heavy. The government should publish a detailed report of preparation and contacts for the event.”
Former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis’ MeRA25 party said the event turned into a “Nazi fiesta. The Greek Reporter said a government spokesman admitted the mistake but then used it to smear SYRIZA as Russian apologists:
As the article points out, Zelensky also managed to put his foot in his mouth with Israel:
Ignoring Greece’s suffering under German Nazism was a slight made worse by bringing a Nazi along to address Greek lawmakers. Zelensky has gotten into trouble before by referring to a nation’s history in his addresses to parliaments. He caused outrage in Israel for comparing what Ukraine is going through today to the Holocaust while completely ignoring the role Ukrainian fascists played in that Holocaust.
All of this makes me wonder: is this so bad that it has to be on purpose and by design? Is Mr. Globaloney so wickedly clever that he's already preparing the ground for a Ukrainian collapse, or the overthrow of Mr. Zelensky's "administration"?
Maybe, but I suspect not.
I suspect we're looking at something far far worse, something that should give everyone pause, and that's sheer incompetence, not only on Zelensky's part, but on the part of his handlers, all the way across the pond and up the ladder to people like Victoria "F-the-EU Nuland" and George Soros, and to whomever is really behind the sock puppet Bidenenko. Watching this man "work the crowd" - in this case, the Greek parliament - is like watching a movie version of The Emperor's New Clothes, only no one in Athens is laughing at the emperor's nakedness, because it's merely a reflection of the nakedness and incompetence of his real bosses.
In short, Mr. Globaloney is no longer represented by David Rockefailure or vowel-less Zbgnw Brzznsk. Those were the bad old days when the plutocratic cabal didn't go out of its way to embarrass itself. Now Mr. Globaloney is represented by a sagging palindrome named Soros and a Ukrainian comedian named Zelensky...
... and you still think globaloneyism is a good idea?
... See you on the flip side...
