There are few things more grotesque than watching Tucker Carlson rail against Ukraine's effort to defend itself against the Russian invasion, repeating almost verbatim what you hear on KremlinTV. In most countries, Carlson's naked propaganda on behalf of Russia would be banned from the airwaves. "Zelensky is far closer to Lenin than to George Washington. He is a dictator...A dangerous authoritarian who has $100 billion in U.S. tax dollars to erect a one-party police state in Ukraine," spewed Russian puppet Tucker Carlson.

The full rant was nearly 10 minutes long, so I'll spare you all that and just add the end of the sordid spectacle where Carlson rails against Ukraine's adeptness at TikTok videos and Zelensky's award from Time Magazine.

And that's why Ukraine's military is now using your tax dollars to produce choreographed dance videos for social media consumption. Sort of like the COVID nurses. Here's one of them.

It's just a grotesque postmodern psyop, and anyone who's fallen for this is brain-damaged. This is the same Ukrainian defense ministry that lied about the "Ghost of Kyiv" and the sailors who cursed out the Russian ship. Now they're just having fun. Because they're beating the real enemies, which of course, as always, are domestic. And Time Magazine is fully on board with this. They just informed their four remaining readers that Zelenskyy is the "person of the year." And the media chorus is in full scream. Jon Meacham, the purported historian at MSNBC, believes that Zelenskyy is really a lot like the Pope.

Carlson wasn't thrilled with the "purported" historian, one with a Pulitzer and honorary doctorates from eight universities, including Yale.

JON MEACHAM: Zelenskyy is being fired by the best fundamental impulses in human nature, which is to stand, to defend, to articulate, to fight back. And I think it's also important to remember that he is a performer. That's where he started. John Paul II was a performer. Ronald Reagan was a performer. Winston Churchill understood the means of the media of his time. He understood the power of radio. Franklin Roosevelt understood radio. It's not coincidental that great leaders understand.

It was all a bit much for Putin's puppet to bear.

Great leaders. So if they'll defend a man who shut down opposition media, arrested his political opponents, arrested priests, sent the army into monasteries and then banned a religion, if they'll defend all of that and call it liberty, they'll defend anything.

And with a line straight from the Kremlin.

On KremlinTV they're just as unsubtle as their American comrade.
