Don’t approve of the United States backing Ukraine? Do you believe that the United States should stay out of the rising tensions between the two countries? Then according to Joe Scarborough you are a “fascist freaks,” and he steals a line from Game of Thrones to sell his ire, “winter is coming.”
On Tuesday mornings episode of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Richard Haass and co-host Mika Brzezinski joined Scarbourgh to discuss the latestest developments in the war between Russia and Ukraine.
“It really is incredible. And it’s also fascinating, the position that Vladimir Putin’s in. Whatever he does, he weakens his hand. Whatever he does. These attacks only brought the West closer together. At a time when winter is coming, and there are a lot of people in Germany that are seeing their economy struggle, but he unifies the West,” Scarborough says.
“I know there’s some freaks in the Republican Party that love Vladimir Putin, some freaks that hate Ukraine, some freaks who are actually on the side of the tyrant who is bombing civilians and purposefully trying to kill children. All this attack does is reinforce the spine of Republicans, not many, but a few, who may be sort of in the middle right now, and they’re seeing these headlines, headlines from the ‘Wall Street Journal: ‘Russia unleashes mass strikes.’ ‘The New York Times’: ‘Russia unleashes deadly barrage against civilians.’ And again, against civilians. Hey, freaks, fascist freaks on the right, there is no moral ambiguity here. There is no comparison between Russia and Ukraine, and you prove yourself to be the fascist you are when you suggest the same. The official paper for ‘Morning Joe,’ the ‘New York Post’: ‘Putin vs. Playgrounds: Kids in the line of fire as Mad Vlad targets civilians in Ukraine mass barrage.’ And ‘The Daily News: ‘Vlad’s bloody payback.’ Richard, again, all he does when he launches these terrorist attacks, and they are terrorist attacks because he’s trying to purposefully kill civilians, all he does is make Ukraine stronger, make NATO more united, enrage people across Europe and the world even more.”
