Nolte: Ukraine War Fever Could Kill GOP Midterm Chances The GOP is on the cusp of not just a red wave, but a generational political realignment, and this is when we start flirting with the 100 percent failure rate of neoconism?
When the Biden White House sounds more sensible than some in our party and some of our most popular talking heads… That’s scary.
We can all see it… The most dangerous thing imaginable is already here… A moral panic where everyone tries to prove their anti-Putin purity through more and more extremism until America is once again killing hundreds of thousands of civilians in a war we’re eventually going to lose anyway. And it’s all being ginned up by a D.C. War Machine that can never get rich enough and a corporate media that put ratings above human life.
We cannot fall for this.
I hope and pray Putin is humiliated in Ukraine. Nothing would make me happier. And I sympathize entirely with Ukraine doing everything in its power, including lying, to get some outside help and save itself from annihilation. But that doesn’t blind me to the fact that 1) Putin has nukes and 2) now that the U.S. military is fully-Vindman’d, we don’t win wars.
So let me say this to the GOP… It’s a trap, dummies! It’s a neocon/MSM/Democrat trap built by people who could not care less about Ukraine. To them, this war is just a convenient way to move their hate/blacklisting/virtue-signaling supremacism to another cause now that the COVID moral panic has run its course.
