The Moral Blindness of Putin’s Apologists on the Right


But, need I say this? Mr. Biden isn’t Vladimir Putin. Mr. Biden doesn’t invade neighbors on a false pretext, killing indiscriminately. He doesn’t make people who have fallen into disfavor fall from the windows of tall buildings. He doesn’t throw a foreign journalist in jail for reporting the truth about what is going on in his country. He doesn’t arrange the murder of his domestic political opponents on the soil of other countries. And he doesn’t imprison, torture and preside over the “death by sudden death” of his principal domestic critic.

If you can’t see the difference then I say, respectfully, that you have lost—or discarded—your capacity for moral reasoning. And that is an even bigger problem.


  1. If you can't win the argument, change the subject!
    No one is comparing Biden to Putin.
    Putin is a strong leader willing to make hard decisions (even if they wind up bitting him in the behind) and kill his enemies. Biden is a friendly, demented man with a groping problem. There is certainly no comparison.
    What the right is saying is that Putin just endorsed Biden for the 2024 election. After all the crying that Trump and Putin are in bed together, Putin endorsed Biden. So yeah, you've got a lot of distracting to do.
    Let's go Brandon!

  2. Nope if the right wing is morally blind it is needed to point it out
