These Two Videos Of Blinken PERFECTLY Sum Up The Biden Admin’s Views On ‘Democracy’

Americans should take a good look at what the 'protect democracy' crowd is advocating for.

We have been told that the reason that the United States needs to continue funding Ukraine’s fight against Russian aggression is because it’s a fight for “democracy”.

Look, land disputes are always fraught, but especially when the dispute has gone on for centuries and involves intertwined people groups as is the case in Ukraine. That said, Putin going in and invading Ukraine, a sovereign nation, is not something that should be permitted.

It’s funny that the very same people who turned a blind eye to the annexation of Crimea in 2014 are the ones that are willing to shovel tens of billions at a shot to help Ukraine defend itself against Russian aggression now. And they’re willing to do that indefinitely.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken made a surprise visit to Ukraine on Tuesday to reaffirm the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine.

“I have come to Ukraine with a message: You are not alone,” he said during a speech at the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.
In their meeting Zelensky urged Blinken to provide more military support to the Ukrainian military, including additional air defense support. “We want to get it as soon as possible, and the second point is air defense, the biggest deficit for us. I think the biggest problem is that we really need today two patriots for the Kharkiv region, because there are people – they are under attack, civilians, warriors, everybody – they are under Russian missiles,” he told reporters…
…Blinken committed to helping Ukraine build its “force of the future” and reiterated that the US intends to make use of seized Russian assets to provide funding to Ukraine for their reconstruction.
“Our Congress has given us the power to seize Russian assets in the United States. We intend to use it,” said Blinken during the speech. “What Putin destroyed, Russia should and must pay to rebuild.”

That is vastly different from the way this administration is handling the situation in the Middle East where the administration is talking out of both sides of its mouth in a failing attempt to please both the pro-Israel and the increasingly loud faction of Hamas apologists that vote blue.

In a presser, Blinken spoke about how the U.S. is working to “shore up Ukraine’s elections infrastructure.” He added that elections won’t be held until the conditions are right — whatever that means.

When exactly will that be? We have no idea.

Blinken appears to imply that as long as the war continues, there won’t be elections.

Who gets to decide when the “conditions” are right? Well, the Zelensky administration of course!

While in Kyiv — you know, the place that’s so unsafe that martial law has been declared and the conditions apparently don’t yet allow for elections — Blinken hops onstage with a jazz-punk band and performs for a crowd in a basement cocktail bar.

The song choice could not have been more appropriate for this absurd administration. After announcing that elections would be suspended indefinitely, Clueless Joe’s Secretary of State performs “Rockin’ In The Free World.”

The choice of song was intentional.

As the New York Times headline declares, “In Kyiv, Blinken Adds Rock Notes to a ‘Free World’ Message.” The subheading is no better, “The secretary of state, a longtime guitarist, strummed along to a song chosen to underscore a central message of President Biden’s foreign policy.”

This is what is underscoring Biden’s foreign policy:

Keep on rockin’ in the free world and no elections until “conditions allow.”

Got it.

We shouldn’t be surprised — this is the same administration that sics the DOJ on political enemies, weaponizes 3-letter agencies on right-wingers, veterans, and Christians, and is doing everything it can to jail the leader of the opposition who also happens to be a former President.

They’re just mocking you. To them, “democracy” means one-party rule, and that one party is the one that agrees with them.

Indeed.

Between the Shambling Husk of Mediocrity that can barely string a sentence together, Cacklin’ Kamala and her “Veep Thoughts”, and Wannabe Rocker Tony Blinken, I’m beginning to think that we’re living in a badly written fanfic sitcom version of The West Wing.

If that’s not the case, then it’s just that this administration is an absurd joke.
