Congressman Jamie Raskin Claims Supporting Ukraine is About Defending Degenerate, Post-Western Values
Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin published a statement on October 25, 2022 saying that the United States’ continued military aid to Ukraine is of the essence due to Russia allegedly being anti-gay and transgender.
Raskin published this statement after the dissenting progressive faction of the Democratic Party, made up of 30 members, started calling for diplomacy to end the Russo-Ukrainian conflict.
In Raskin’s view, Russia is the embodiment of reactionary values. And any move to cut off aid to Ukraine in its conflict with Russia represents a tacit endorsement of Russia’s reactionary values.
“Moscow right now is … a world center of antifeminist, antigay, anti-trans hatred, as well as the homeland of replacement theory for export,” Raskin declared in the statement.
Raskin described Vladimir Putin as an “imperialist” and a “colonizer,” and even attacked Russia.
“Moscow right now is a hub of corrupt tyranny, censorship, authoritarian repression, police violence, propaganda, government lies and disinformation, and planning for war crimes … In supporting Ukraine, we are opposing these fascist views, and supporting the urgent principles of democratic pluralism. Ukraine is not perfect, of course, but its society is organized on the radically different principles of democracy and freedom,” the statement pointed out.
Indeed, Raskin’s statement represents how the US Deep State has embraced wokism in a way to get liberals, left-liberals, and progressives to support imperialist ventures abroad. The US has a universalist ethos on foreign policy, so anything that takes place domestically, is ultimately exported abroad.
As a civic nationalist nation that rejects a lot of the PC sacraments that are prevalent in the West, Russia is an easy country to hate. While its geopolitical moves are controversial, the US has no business of trying to get into a geopolitical tussle with Russia.
There comes a point when the US’s ideological fixations can turn deadly, especially in foreign affairs. Russia is a nuclear power, so any further escalations with it could become catastrophic.
Sober foreign policy decision-making based on realism and restraint is desperately needed to ensure that the world can avoid the utter catastrophe that a potential nuclear conflict entails.
