There has to be some serious financial connections with Russia. Carlson is also on the advisory board of The American Conservative, and every piece written by every contributor since day one of the invasion has been pure Kremlin party line disinformation 24/7.
I couldn’t fully grasp it at first. The initial conclusion is that they are utterly corrupt nihilists, willing to end the country and the world for the sake of their wealth. Like the guy in “The Diamond as Big as the Ritz” who tries to bribe Almighty God.
And that’s absurd, it would put these people on the level of a Batman villian for base wickedness, and that’s only found in movies and comic books. So I dismiss it as hyperbole.
Yet over time here we are — they are base and wicked and pursuing destruction at any cost to the rest of the world. We are living the fable, and they are monsters.
