    CPAC backpedals on pro-Russia tweet as some U.S. conservatives back Putin

    The prominent conservative group decried ‘gift-giving to Ukraine’ while adopting Putin’s view of ‘Ukraine-occupied territories’

    ...
    The Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday tweeted — and then hours later deleted — a message that called on Democrats to “end the gift-giving to Ukraine” while featuring a fluttering Russian flag. The tweet also referred to “Ukraine-occupied territories,” appearing to legitimize Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claims to annex provinces based on a referendum that the U.S. and allies view as illegal.

    At this rate the GOP might as well start tying damsels to railroad tracks.

    A pair of progressive moles with a sense of humor were apparently responsible for a grand — although short-lived — prank at the Conservative Political Action Conference that had members proudly waving tiny banners emblazoned with the name “Trump” that were actually Russian flags.

    It was actually a good strategy, to help lead Putin up to his neck in a quagmire. Putin already had Biden in his pocket, so he knew he could invade Ukraine, easily, like he did under Obama/Biden; Crimea. Does anyone remember the Hillary, Obama/Biden and Putin reset button? They all let bygones be bygones and then Obama/Biden allowed phase one of the firewall expansion.

    With Trump supporters seemingly siding with Putin, Putin felt he was good to go. The Right pulled a bait and switch, and now Putin is in a predicament, which is impacting his leverage in his own country. Putin thought the war would be fast and easy, but it is turning into another Afghanistan; long and costly.

    The Lefties are easy to manipulate. If a conservative says defund Ukraine, they will need to do the opposite and give Ukraine resources to hide their reset button connection to Putin. Now Biden has to step on the foot of his ally, Putin, in an attempt to cover own tracks and play by contrary lefty rules. This is making it difficult for both Putin and Biden.

    An awkward nothingburger about one side attacking
    the other's spending, & then carping about illegals.
    It strikes me as anti-Democrat rather than pro-Russia.

    Don't play that game we see from the other side, ie,
    grasping at straws to make Biden look feeble or evil.

    Same exact thing as here. As soon as most rightists here learnt that the new Ukraine was sponsored by Soros & co., they immediately sided with Putin.

    Gotta deflect your side showing support for something far worse than the nanny state, I see.

    I appreciate hearing some facts. Given the "trumpeting" of Tucker, it's very easy to believe all sorts of things. (and I did notice the name change!)

    FWIW, I'm not a big fan of this "grand — although short-lived — prank ".

    No, they were invaded, blown up, shot, tortured, raped, beaten, abducted, imprisoned and traumatized because of Putin.
    Amd this Soros thing, it's boogeyman nonsense. Lots of rich people give to politicians (it often keeps them rich and sometimes makes them richer), and support causes worse than anything Soros has done. But are you complaining about them? No. It's the RW Boogeyman.

    Shame they deleted it. I would've retweeted it. Not allowed to be anything but warmongering whether R or D, unfortunately.

    Putin is the LW boogeyman, then.
    Because Putin hasn't been to Washington DC for years. Probably ten, almost.
    Because Americans don't want him in the United States, right?

    Whereas the last visit of Putin in Rome was a success.;)
    Because he is loved.

    Why any American conservative would be supportive of the former Soviet Union or their attempts to encroach on our Western allies (not to mention invading and killing them) is beyond me. It's not conservative at all.

    People has people murdered and abducted. He is a brutal dictator and oppressive tyrant.
    What has Sorros done to compare?
    Then Rome has some serious issues and a moral compass that is severely broken for loving such a terrible person, and apparently they got knocked in the head so damn hard they forgot how ****ty fascism actually is and how just how bad it ended for Mussolini and Hitler.
