Karl Denninger points out that the referendums which the globalist media is furiously decrying as “sham referendums” are obviously far more democratically legitimate than the Kiev regime:
Do recall that Zelinskyy declared that if you voted in these “shams” that was to be considered a criminal offense punishable by imprisonment.
This, of course, has been “memory-holed” all over the Internet — but was reported at the time.
Do remember that the Government of Ukraine has done this before. Specifically, they refused the right of the people to decide in 2014, which was also reported, this after the Ukraine government itself was deposed in a literal coup complete with shooting the people who didn’t like the way things were going after the United States, along with others, put their very-large thumb on the scale in deposing Yanukovych.
Isn’t it funny how a national government can be literally overthrown in a violent coup openly fomented by our government, including sitting Senators, and when the people who live in said land say screw you! to that the government then turns around and say “you have no choice, slave!” and declares their intent to walk off on a peaceful basis illegal?
Either the 2014 actions which the US fomented were invalid and everyone involved in them and the succession of power since, including Zelinskyy should be brought up on international charges and hanged or it is beyond question that as of 2014 those “breakaway” portions of the nation had and continue to have every right to walk off because the government to which they acceded on an alleged “voluntary” basis even if you originally accept it was voluntary despite reasonable doubt it was, no longer existed as of 2014.
The fact that the Russian people of the new Russian provinces have been literally fighting for their freedom from an illegitimate foreign government that came to power in a coup for the last eight years should have been a sufficient indicator that the will of the people was not to be a part of the Ukrainian state. The referendums were merely about whether these Russian nationals wanted to try to survive alone or to be provided with the protection of the Russian state; there was nothing “sham” about it.
Anyone who claims that the Kiev regime had any right to continue ruling over those people is a literal statist as they were always Russian-speaking members of the Russian nation while being subject to the Ukrainian state.
The nation is not the state. That’s why people are referred to as “British expats”; which is to say British nationals resident in a non-British state. And the nation has a right to dictate to the state, not the other way around.
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
It’s should not be a surprise to see that the foreign rulers of the United States That Used To Be America reject the founding principles of the Real America.
