WND's Mercer Bashes Zelensky For Not Capituating, Praises Putin For Helping White People
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily columnist Ilana Mercer has been a supporter of Russia's war against Ukraine, though she has also expresssed support for Ukraine's Nazi imagery-invoking Azov Batallion because it's fighting for white people (not surprising logic from a native South African who tried to make an intellectual case for apartheid). Mercer's WND columns have grown more sporadic, but she continues to back Russia and bash Ukraine. In a December 2022 column, amidst anti-immigrant and anti-vaccine rants (touting how those who didn't get a COVID vaccine are "healthy pure-bloods"), took a shot at Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for capitulating to Russia:

"It's biblical, Zelensky: a leader who fails to haggle for the lives of his people is a failed leader." Since the command-and-control U.S. media purge any news of peace talks with Russia, we're none-the-wiser to the fact that at least Israel, France and Turkey are currently active in mediating peace talks.

Ever wonder how Zelensky and family could have remained safely ensconced in Ukraine, as over a million of his countrymen have been forced to flee? The little runt is very likely heavily protected by the best of our Special Forces, or by a private, paramilitary security company paid for by the American taxpayer. A kept man, his flesh softer than sin under the khaki costume, Zelensky has no incentive to quit his shabbily self-serving "heroics," now that the world's greatest deliberative body has authorized billions for his upkeep and that of his country for posterity, in sickness and in health.

Mercer didn't raise the possibility that Russia should withdraw and end its unprovoked war against Ukraine.

Mercer began her Aug. 10 column by quoting herself defending  Russia being white, right-wing and Christian: "By America's prescriptions, Russia should be a woke, minority white, multicultural sewer, awash with MeToo, BLM, and Antifa sensibilities." She never did get around to explaining how all that justifies Russia's invasion of Ukraine -- though she did approvingly quote political scientist John Mearsheimer, who has been perpetually wrong about Russia and Ukraine --  but again attacked Zelensky:

"Win or die, dummies" is what Ukrainians are being instructed by the U.S. Uniparty, its NATO marionettes and their leader Zelensky, who is protected by the above forces.

The "win or die" policy imperialism, vis-à-vis Ukraine, was seconded, on Aug. 7, by Joni Ernst, Republican U.S. senator from Red Oak, Iowa. Ernst proves, in the end, that it is as Dr. Johnson said: "There is no settling the point of precedency between a louse and a flea." Neoconservative or neoliberal, louse or flea, a pest is a pest is a pest.

Um, isn't Russia the "pest" here given its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine? Mercer continued with a defense of Russia and Putin:

Putin is a reactionary Russian patriot, a natural ally of any sovereign, conservative nation-state. The American objective is to end Russian sovereignty and make it over in the woke image of America: a radical Jacobin stronghold. By America's prescriptions, Russia should be a woke, minority white, multicultural sewer, awash with MeToo, BLM and Antifa sensibilities.

As your columnist had remarked in commentary about "America's radical, foreign-policy Alinskyites," in March 2021, "Certain national-conservative governments in Eastern Europe should be natural allies to conservative policymakers stateside, if such unicorns existed. Vladimir Putin's, for example. Before his death … Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, one of Russia's bravest and most brilliant sons, praised Putin's efforts to revive Russia's traditional Christian and moral heritage. For example:

"'In October 2010, it was announced that "The Gulag Archipelago" would become required reading for all Russian high-school students. In a meeting with Solzhenitsyn's widow, Mr. Putin described "The Gulag Archipelago" as "essential reading": "Without the knowledge of that book, we would lack a full understanding of our country and it would be difficult for us to think about the future." … If [only] the same could be said of the high schools of the United States.' (Via The Imaginative Conservative.)"

Actually, students are required to read only certain excerpts from the book -- which, in full, exposed the horrors of labor camps under Stalin -- and doing so hasn't stopped Putin from praising Stalin and downplaying the bad things, or from running a Stalin-esque crackdown on dissent to his rule (as Alexei Navalny can attest) or launching a Stalin-esque war on Ukraine. Mercer continued with the Putin praise for defending white people and hating LGBTQ people:

For a long while, the Russian president patiently tolerated America's demented, anti-Russia monomania. As our country sank into the quicksands of what conservatives call "Cultural Marxism" – by contrast, and since the get-go, your columnist has framed the new, woke Western dispensation as anti-whiteness – Putin's inclinations have remained decidedly reactionary and traditionalist.

The Russian leader had prohibited public sexual evangelizing by LGBTQ activists. He comes down squarely on the side of the Russian Orthodox Church, such as when vandals, the Pussy Riot whores, obscenely desecrated the cathedral of Christ the Savior. He has also welcomed as refugees persecuted white South Africans, where America's successive governments refuse to acknowledge that the latter are under threat of ethnocide. Also, policies to stimulate Russian birthrates have been put in place by the conservative leader.

Ukraine, for its part, is led by a vainglorious fool. "Zelensky is a kept man, his flesh softer than sin under the khaki costume." For all his Jewish-lineage boasting, Zelensky ought to know that, in the Hebrew Bible, a "leader who fails to haggle for the lives of his people is considered a failed leader."

But wouldn't Zelensky be more of a failed leader if he sold out his people to oppression under an invading force under the guise of achieving "peace"? Mercer has offered no evidence that Putin offers anything but subjugation and oppression to Ukraine -- and, thus, no reason for Zelensky to negotiate with terrorists.
