I hung a 1897 Mosin Nagant on my wall today.  What a weapon the Russians make, lasts centuries. I have a 1936 that shoots 1 moa.

So you concede that Ukraine is actually a corrupt nation. Nice argument.

No, if the argument is that Russia invaded Ukraine to quell Ukranian corruption, that's some serious backward logic considering that Russia is more corrupt than Ukraine.

I'm suggesting that Ukraine should have invaded Russia instead if that's the argument. Russia is more corrupt than Ukraine. Just like the US is more corrupt than Germany (33 v 20) and so on.

In other words, regarding:

Am I supposed to be sad that Russia invaded a country which The Guardian designated in 2015 as the most corrupt nation in Europe?

Your stance and logic is garbage.

Did you listen to Tucker there? That's not a Zelensky quote, not does he claim it to be one.

I did watch the video. It is less than one minute long. I watched and listened to the whole thing. It is asserted to be a Zelensky quote. See the six second mark. From the YouTube Transcript:

I don't see any evidence that Ukraine isn't still corrupt since 2015. According to Transparency International Ukraine's corruption score is still pretty high:

He was not speaking a direct quote.
And I can't seem to find anything of substance on it.
Or much info.

The best I found is https://diannemarshallreport.com/president-trump-wisconsin-rally-hungary-prime-minister-orban-at-cpac/
where its claimed he said this to Chinese president Xi.

But it seems to have its origin from Tucker Carlson.  I can't seem to find any source before his.

So... he made up a quote, it seems.  Or at least paraphrased something without sourcing it.

The quote certainly does not come from the blog or a blog author. It comes from Carlson. Carlson is is speaking as Zelensy: "I think americans are ridiculous decadent overfed and I have contempt for them"

It is possible that Zelensky did not really say this and that this is Carlson rephrasing another quote or action as something Zelensy said, in the way someone might rephrase a quote or action from someone else. Based on the other quote given in that segment, Carlson may have been referring to Zelensy's inflation quotes:

    Zelensky Responds to Americans Unhappy With Spending to Support Ukraine

    Ukraine's President Volodymr Zelensky said that Americans balking at the cost of U.S. support for Kyiv's fight against Russian aggression should keep in mind "we are fighting for absolutely communal values."

    ~

    "Inflation is nothing, COVID is nothing," he said, "ask those people who lost their children, their peace, their property at the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion. Who is thinking about masks and COVID? Who is thinking about inflation?"

Zelensky thinks that the US should put Ukraine above its own problems and does not care that the US has other issues to deal with.

Gas prices are the highest they've been ....

*listens to Americans cry about gas.*

I pay $7.23/gallon (converted from Norwegian).

UK price, assuming I've done all my conversions properly, is currently equivalent of $7.47 per US gallon.

Suck it up, ya whiner ...

No, it's not. In fact, you can compare it to how that show presents quotes, because the video includes one.

You fell for a fake "news" blog, Tom. It's sad.
