For the last two years, the blue check Twitter crew has been lecturing the world on how anyone who resisted covid tyranny, "wanted grandma to die!" Droves of ostensible journalists and supposed activists fought tooth and nail with vitriol, hatred, and disdain against anyone who would dare be against forced medical procedures and unscientific economic devastation.
These folks were more than willing to demand government require vaccination passports, complete segregation of the unvaccinated, and in some extreme cases, jailing people who refused the jab.
But on February 24, a switch was flipped and all this anger was then directed at Russia and anyone who would dare talk about the history of that region which didn't portray Ukraine as some bastion of democracy in their battle against big evil Russia.
Just as they demanded government take away the rights of individuals over their personal medical choices, these same folks are now demanding the government take away the rights of those who speak out in opposition to the established narrative. The new McCarthyites have been demanding the government and Big Tech alike silence any and all views that don't wholly support their distorted positions on Ukraine which could lead to nuclear war.
There is a common thread between what these folks did during covid and what they are doing now that their outrage has been shifted to Ukraine — they want the state to enforce their sadistic and twisted views, no matter the cost and as long as they don't have to dirty their hands in the process.
In a White House Press conference this week, the majority of reporters in the room, many of whom were the key purveyors and supporters of covid tyranny, all demanded to know when the US is going to intervene in Ukraine.
The folks advocating for a no fly zone and military intervention in Ukraine can no longer claim ignorance as the results of such actions are now widely known. Any US military action in Ukraine would be seen as an act of war by Russia and this would inevitably kick off a new world war, pulling in NATO nations all over Europe, clearing the way for China to take Taiwan, and ensuring devastation, both economical and physical, on multiple continents.

So why on earth are these people continuing to call for US intervention in Ukraine? It's simple, because they aren't the ones who would be intervening.
It won't be the NY Times editor or the BBC executive, or their children, who go off to die in a war with Russia. It will be the poor and patriotic in the military.
Nevertheless, media blowhards like Piers Morgan continue to push for war, comparing Russia's invasion of Ukraine to Hitler exterminating 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, and demanding intervention.
After Morgan made the above comment, Glenn Greenwald silenced him immediately, asking why he's not in Ukraine fighting if he is so brave in standing against Russia.
It is downright shameful for these folks to advocate for the potential deaths of tens of thousands of troops, likely far more, while they get to sit back in their mansions and watch their chaos unfold. Unfortunately, however, this is the way it has always been.
The lives of the poor and patriotic class are deemed expendable as the media and government alike work to propagandize the masses into accepting war. This is why there is such vast ignorance among the masses when it comes to the complexities of this invasion and the other ones before it.
It is far easier to believe everything the politicians and mainstream press tell us than to critically analyze situations and ask tough questions. And, unfortunately, the majority of people take the easy route.
"Failure of government programs prompts more determined effort, while the loss of liberty is ignored or rationalized away...whether is it is the war on poverty, drugs, terrorism...or the current Hitler of the day, an appeal to patriotism is used to convince the people that a little sacrifice of liberty, here or there, is a small price to pay...The results, though, are frightening and will soon become even more so." — Ron Paul
