WaPo Reported That Even Biden’s Getting Fed Up With Zelensky’s Ungrateful Begging
It’s now no longer “Russian propaganda” to describe Zelensky as an ungrateful beggar, but the implied standard of “political correctness” after Biden himself just reportedly told the Ukrainian leader to cut it out and stop angering American taxpayers ahead of the midterms.
Criticizing Zelensky as ungrateful for his incessant begging in spite of his side already receiving literally tens of billions of dollars of support from US taxpayers was smeared by the Mainstream Media (MSM) as so-called “Russian propaganda”, that is, up until Tuesday. The Washington Post (WaPo) – which can’t by any stretch of the imagination be described as “Russian propaganda”, “Russian-friendly”, or against the US’ ruling Democrat elite – just reported that none other than Biden himself is getting fed up with the Ukrainian leader for precisely that.
In their piece about how “Biden scrambles to avert cracks in pro-Ukraine coalition”, they wrote that:
“Early in the war, Zelensky called repeatedly and publicly on the United States and other Western countries to do more — to send additional weapons and impose harsher sanctions on Russia — even as Biden and Congress were already sending unprecedented amounts of aid and advanced weapons to Kyiv.
Biden understood as a fellow politician that Zelensky had to advocate forcefully for his people, but he also told the Ukrainian leader privately that it would be hard for him to keep asking Congress for money if Zelensky appeared ungrateful and kept saying it was not enough, according to a former White House official.”
This is yet another piece of evidence proving the existence of rifts between the US and Ukraine.
As I explained in my latest analysis about how “Zelensky’s Plan For NATO Troops Under The Cover Of G7 Peacekeepers Probably Won’t Happen”, America has twice rejected Kiev’s demand for direct NATO involvement in the conflict, both through his crumbling former Soviet Republic’s official membership in that bloc and then indirectly under the guise that he suggested on Tuesday. I added that Washington’s reluctance to comply with its proxy’s demand proves that it won’t proverbially let the “tail wag the dog” and is also concerned about the impact of more direct involvement ahead of the midterms.
Regarding Zelensky’s ungrateful begging, the Biden Administration has hitherto complied because the US’ military-industrial complex and those members of the elite that invest in related companies have profited from this unprecedented money laundering operation. Even so, his team got carried away and now many Americans are enraged at the thought that a foreign country halfway across the world that was condemned by Transparency International as one of the most corrupt in the world is receiving more money than their own impoverished compatriots and those suffering from environmental disasters.
Finally cognizant of the domestic political consequences of this scheme, Biden reportedly told Zelensky that he needs to stop being so ungrateful and instead start showing that he appreciates everything that the American taxpayers have given his side thus far. The ruling party is apparently concerned that voters might turn against them even more fiercely than previously expected due to their fury over how much Ukraine is getting at the expense of their own fellow citizens. All of this was foreseeable and warned about long ago by objective observers, yet it wasn’t until now that their words were heeded.
The “official narrative” towards the Ukrainian Conflict, which is actually a US-led NATO proxy war on Russia through that neighboring country, is therefore evolving. It’s now no longer “Russian propaganda” to describe Zelensky as an ungrateful beggar, but the implied standard of “political correctness” after Biden himself just reportedly told the Ukrainian leader to cut it out and stop angering American taxpayers. This just goes to show that the rifts between the US and Ukraine are widening beyond the latter’s demands for direct NATO intervention, which few have yet to publicly acknowledge.
