I don’t think so. I think you can be willfully avoiding reality. But if you are open to looking at reality, as you pointed out he’s written a 9,000-word explanation, he gave a very long speech to Russian people before he invaded. But he has a lifetime of saying same things, said greatest disaster of 20th century was the collapse of Soviet Union. He clearly is committed to reestablishing a Russian empire and in Russian tradition, Ukraine is a key part of Russia. So, he wants to seize the country. I think he has been shocked because the Ukrainians has slowed down, and someplace defeated the Russian army. I think he really thought they would collapse, and it would be a three-day event Now it not at all clear he could ever occupy all of Ukraine. And yet, I think he can’t figure out an exit strategy, he has got himself out on this limb. And I think that the job, this is the crisis of western democracy. If we don’t have the guts to stand up to this guy when he is a war criminal. As you pointed out earlier, he was a war criminal in Chechnya, he was a war criminal in Syria. And he is clearly being a war criminal in Ukraine. He was a war criminal or at least international criminal when he killed Russian dissident in Great Britain using poisons that only could be made of Russia. He approach is one of being outside of any reasonable rule of law. The question is does the Biden administration and our allies have the guts to stand up and ensure that Ukrainians win Because if they get the equipment, they would probably beat the Russians that would pose for Putin an enormous crisis of whether or not his regime could survivor if they are defeated and if there are enough body bags that go back to Russia.
Look, I think – liberals, the easiest way to think of it is that liberals saw the “Lion King” and thought it was a documentary. And they literally wander around thinking that lions and zebras sing and dance together. When you try to explain to them, whether it’s domestic criminals who are out murdering, raping, and carjacking and breaking into stores or its international terrorists or it’s countries whose leaders are themselves terrorists. I think that’s one way to think of Putin. They can’t believe it’s true. They keep saying to us, don’t understand there has to be a better way. Well. I tell you, without the weight and might of the United States and Great Britain, Hitler would have won. A world dominated by Hitler would have been horrible. Without the determination of the United States and their allies, the Soviet Union might have won. And a world dominated by the Soviet Union would have been horrible. We’re back in the same business, you have two dictatorial countries that are big, Russia is weak except for nuclear weapons, but China is strong in many different ways, and if they decide western democracies are gutless that in the end we have words without weapons, we are not willing to stand for our values, we are not willing to stand for our interests, this world will get to be so much more dangerous almost overnight, that people would look back and think this is the time our civilization crumbles. And forces of darkness came to dominate the planet.
Look I think that American people are largely in touch with reality. Let’s start with that, they actually believe that you have to stop predators, you have to stop people who would attack you. And it is a gut deep instinct about the nature of life, you have to go to a place like Harvard, Yale, or Princeton to learn enough weirdness to be able to fantasize that you can deal with evil by somehow placating it and having nice conversations, but normal people who are not subjected that kind of brain washing understand that is crazy. Guys like Putin have to be stopped or they will keep attacking.
This is an extension of the Obama plan which apparently is to try to have Iran balance off Israel, it is an anti-Israel move, the left is desperate about it, it is crazy. It makes no sense. This is the leading nation of terrorism in the world. They openly state what they want to do, which is eliminate Israel and then drive us out of the Middle East. It is hard to understand why the American left is so dedicated to sponsoring a religiously inspired theocratic dictatorship that is the dominant terrorist state in the world. But they are, and it’s a fact. They would prop up Putin have to Putin’s help with Iran, this is insanity.
No, I think she laid it out pretty clearly, she can’t define what a woman is. Well, you show me someone who can’t define what a woman is. I’ll show you somebody who is so radical that they clearly are not part of any reasonable mainstream, and you put a person like that on the court. I think she seems to have a pleasant personality, but she clearly has nutty ideas. I’m old fashion, that I actually do think that there are men and there are women, I don’t think we have birthing persons, I think we have mothers, I don’t think that guys who pretend to be female who win swimming matches and then they are heroes or heroines. I think that destroys title 9 and destroys the future of woman in athletics. And I think that we should be blunt about this stuff. This is a fight we need. And frankly she should be disqualified unless she can come back and explain what a woman is and whether she can explain whether words like he and she are acceptable pronouns. This is the core of the cultural war we’re in the middle of. Between a religiously secular anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim belief system. That wants to change all of us. And get us to memorize 62 different pronouns so we can be sure to call people what they want to be called. I think she disqualified herself by that one answer because it was an answer. I can’t define a woman. That is an answer.
And the challenge you have is the elite media, and many of largest corporations have so totally sold out on this whole Transexual issue, that it is truly up hill, it is much harder argument for example then right to life. For some reason, the left has totally rallied at the fanatic intensity around this question. You know Biden has twice said to transsexuals, I have your back, he didn’t say that to people who happen to be heterosexual he didn’t say that to people who happen to be Christian or Jewish or Muslim. He didn’t say that to Latinos. He said it to one particular narrow group, and for some reason the left is fixated on this as the ultimate symbol of what they really believe in. And you are talking about maybe 5 or 10% of the country. And I think is an issue which is just one more thing that is alienating. You know the most recent polling numbers Latinos are becoming Republican, African American are beginning to break, supervisor of the school board was recalled in San Francisco. And over 70% vote lead by Asian Americans. You begin to really see Americans wake up to culture war. And unfortunately, this is first Supreme Court nominee who represents the radicalism of the modern culture war, and for that the reason, she should not be confirmed.
