Zelensky Inadvertently Admitted That The Vast Majority Of Humanity Doesn’t Support Ukraine
Taken together, Zelensky’s keynote speech: revealed his side’s supremacist views vis a vis the Global South; prematurely declared a propaganda victory where there veritably isn’t one; tacitly admitted their failure to manipulate the vast majority of humanity; implied a redoubling of lies to reverse the aforesaid; and exposed the unprofessionalism his information warfare campaign.
Zelensky’s address to Congress saw the Ukrainian leader inadvertently admit that the majority of humanity doesn’t support his country in its NATO-backed proxy war on Russia. In his own words, “We defeated Russia in the battle for minds of the world. We have no fear, nor should anyone in the world have it. Ukrainians gained this victory, and it gives us courage which inspires the entire world…Yet, we have to do whatever it takes to ensure that countries of the Global South also gain such victory.”
Put simply, he prematurely declared that his side “defeated Russia in the battle for minds of the world”, after which he quickly corrected himself by clarifying that “countries of the Global South” still remain a battleground in this respect, hence why “we have to do whatever it takes” to change their minds. This is a damning admission because it reveals five “politically incorrect” truths at once that have been ruthlessly suppressed by the US-led West’s Golden Billion and the perception managers.
First, Zelensky and his ilk don’t consider the Global South to be “the entire world”, which in the wider context of his remarks is implied to only be his country’s Western overlords. This insight further reinforces the observation that everything that he and his side do is aimed at appealing to that de facto New Cold War bloc and not the international community as a whole. After all, they’re fully responsible for arming and financing his forces, so it in a way makes sense that he only cares about them.
Second, he introduced the analyzed excerpt as supposedly representing “our first, first joint victory”, which reveals three interconnected realities: Western propagandists have amplified his side’s message across the world; this has only succeeded in manipulating some popular perceptions within their own bloc; and it’s failed across the vast majority of humanity. That being the case, it can more accurately described as “our first joint partial victory”, and one which they’re struggling to maintain in any case.
Third, Zelensky’s tacit admission that he and his overlords have failed to manipulate minds across the Global South speaks to the ineffectiveness of their joint propaganda campaign. In connection with that, it’s now known for a fact that their information warfare operations are based entirely on lies, especially concerning sensitive narratives like those related to the food crisis and the grain deal. This is proven by the Red Cross’ Director for Africa exposing the West’s lies behind both just a few days back.
Fourth, the Ukrainian leader’s declaration that “we have to do whatever it takes” to successfully manipulate the majority of humanity that has thus far resisted being brainwashed by the Golden Billion’s perception management operations suggests that the West will actually double down on their lies. That in turn implies that it hasn’t learned the lesson behind why it failed to manipulate those minds in the first place, namely that their efforts are based entirely upon easily discredited lies as explained.
And finally, the last “politically incorrect” truth to be discerned from Zelensky’s address to Congress is that his speechwriters should have realized ahead of time that the analyzed excerpt amounts to a damning admission that goes against everything that their side has hitherto claimed. The very fact that it remained in his speech despite being reviewed by multiple perception managers, possibly even including American ones, testifies to the unprofessionalism of their information warfare campaign.
Taken together, Zelensky’s keynote speech: revealed his side’s supremacist views vis a vis the Global South; prematurely declared a propaganda victory where there veritably isn’t one; tacitly admitted their failure to manipulate the vast majority of humanity; implied a redoubling of lies to reverse the aforesaid; and exposed the unprofessionalism of his information warfare campaign. In hindsight, the examined excerpt should have been scrubbed from his speech since its inclusion contradicts Kiev’s interests.
