Remember #FreeSavchenko ? This was a Twitter campaign aimed to bring attention to the imprisonment of the Ukrainian helicopter pilot Nadezhda Savchenko. All the Western media was abuzz with the news of this heroic woman imprisoned by the Terrible Putin’s regime. Newspapers and magazines were publishing stories about her and her life. Television Muse Outlets ran long segments about her heroic fight against the evil Kremlin. People were showing up to rallies and demonstrations holding up her name.
Time flies by, and now that this obviously mentally unstable individual is in prison again, this time the Ukrainian prison, no one seems to care. You don’t even hear it anywhere in the news. CNN is not talking about it, neither does the Fox News Network. It’s completely gone off the face of the Earth. What happened? This just happened 4 years ago. And now we don’t even hear about it.
I do not hear any word from the state department, which used to have such strong and publicly loud opinions all the time. What are we paying our taxes for? Why did we even sponsor that fucking regime change in Ukraine? It’s not like any American actually cares about what goes on outside of his fence. (I am not even sure that many Americans can point out Ukraine on a map)
We give millions of dollars to this country every year in a form of aid, but we don’t seem to care.
Does that sound like rational decision making to you?
Stop wasting our tax dollars trying to overthrow the world!
