Many liberal leftists, siding with the U.S.-NATO and Kyiv, purvey falsehoods about the Ukraine War.
Many liberal leftists, siding with the U.S.-NATO and Kyiv, purvey falsehoods about the Ukraine War. They often do so out of ignorance and because of their gullible acceptance of one-sided reporting in the mainstream news media (which serve as a propaganda arm of the bipartisan U.S. imperial foreign policy establishment), and/or out of sympathy for suffering Ukrainians and an obsession to be seen as politically respectable.
Many of these 'leftists' always were, or have devolved into, liberal reformist big-D Democrats as they seek to induce the broad progressive constituency to give allegiance to these Dems whom they portray as defenders of progress and democracy notwithstanding these Dems' subservience to capital and empire and their many betrayals of struggles for social justice.
