Grifter of the Year.

Volodymyr Zelensky & The Spirit of Graft



    A tip of the hat to  for nailing the meme. I had to check the calendar to make sure it was not April 1st when I heard the news that Time magazine named Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky Man of the Year. It also crossed my mind that the Babylon Bee was doing a follow up on its satirical cover featuring “Rachel” Levine as Man of the Year.

    The Babylon Bee was joking (I thought it hilarious). Time magazine may be a joke, but is dead serious in naming Zelensky its Man of the Year. , to its credit, beat Babylon Bee to the punch in correctly ridiculing this decision.

    Larry Johnson, in his article, asks some questions:

    Who imposed a ban on all opposition political parties — Vladimir Putin or Volodymry Zelensky?
    Who shuttered all opposition media — Vladimir Putin or Volodymry Zelensky?
    Who closed down the Russian Orthodox Church and jailed priests — Vladimir Putin or Volodymry Zelensky?

    The answer to all of them is, of course, Zelensky. See Johnson’s site for details.
