For the 90 percent of Americans who use the internet, graphic visuals from live-streamed combat are heartbreaking. These are the kinds of videos that make people remark things like, “It is seen blood-soaked people being slain or injured,” as an acquaintance did. People are prepared to spend extra on petrol to support themselves.
People were ecstatic two weeks ago when they realized they would be able to see their children’s faces again when they sent them off to school or daycare. However, with the recent turn of events, they appear to be suddenly prepared to bear greater pain that they genuinely cannot afford for strangers 6000 miles away. It’s as if they’re on a stage with a pistol to their heads, shouting, “Hate Trump.” He is a horrible person. Take the shot.
Now it appears that people should despise Putin and everything affiliated with his country. Russia planned to attack Ukraine, a smaller nation. So, that’s incorrect, according to Ms. Harris.
Moreover, a good-intentioned movement has devolved into a mob-mentality, virtue-signaling echo chamber. One of the opera world’s biggest stars, Anna Netrebko, has left the Met after the organization said it will cut connections with those performers who “support Putin or are backed by him.” Coca-Cola and Pepsi are facing boycotts as a result of their Russian activities. Russia-bred cats have been barred from participating in cat shows.
Therefore, the cultural reaction to Russia and its tyrant Putin is legitimate, but people should be mindful of suppressive tidal waves that mirror the culture that has actively worked to destroy conservative (or merely questioning) Americans: The pendulum has a high rate of swing. Senator Lindsey Graham had a “Lord of the Flies” moment when he urged Russians to do the world a favor and assassinate their president.
