Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy vetoed a speech by Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky on the stated ground that the House didn’t have time for a Joint Session of Congress to hear Zelinsky’s speech.
This will go down as a day of great shame for the Banana Republican Party.
Imagine Winston Churchill coming to Washington in 1940, when the Battle of Britain was underway in the air every night, when English cities were being bombed by the German Luftwaffe every night, and a Republican-controlled House didn’t have time to hear him address a joint session of Congress.
That would be the equivalent insult.
Zelensky is the Winston Churchill of Ukraine. And the insult of the House Banana Republican Party is an insult heard round the world.
Actually, it may be that McCarthy has done the Democrats a great favor.
It is now clear that Joe Biden and the Democrats support Ukraine and the battle for Freedom in Ukraine and the United Nations Charter.
It is equally clear that the putative nominee of the Banana Republican Party, Donald Trump, an admirer of Russian President Vladimir Putin, will lead the country down the road of appeasement if he is elected president in 2024.
Trump has never criticized Putin. Not once.
The choice will be clear:
Vote for the Democratic presidential candidate in 2024 if you want to support Ukraine and the U.N. Charter.
Vote for the Banana Republican Party nominee, Donald Trump, if you want to follow him down the road of appeasement of Putin.
Democrats = Support Ukraine
Banana Republicans = Follow Trump down thev road of appeasement of Putin.
Nothing could be simpler, or more true.
