The Russia-Ukraine war has been the most-watched regional conflict in history. The sides are crystal clear in the eyes of our government, corporate media, and big business as Russian President Vladimir Putin is portrayed as pure evil while Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been sainted. The reality is there are no real good guys in this whole mess, but in 2022 reality isn’t a top priority for the powers-that-be.
The latest version of virtue signaling gone awry is beer company Anheuser-Busch bringing Ukraine’s “most popular beer” to breweries in New Jersey so it can be sold in select areas across the country. According to Fox19:
Starting in May, Chernigivske, pronounced churnee-iskay, will be brewed in New Jersey. The beer will be sold on draft in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Houston, and Phoenix.
The beer sales will go to Ukrainian relief efforts, and the company will also donate at least $5 million to humanitarian aid and organizations. The pale golden lager is named after the hard-hit Ukrainian city of Chernihiv and has been brewed there since 1988.
This publicity stunt is a PR goldmine as the vast majority of Americans have locked in on the mainstream narrative that we must support Ukraine no matter what. And while I appreciate that the company is giving money for humanitarian aid, there’s a severely negative component that they’re not broadcasting. Nazis in Ukraine have become more and more dominant since the war began. They’ve been integrated into the military and have been accused of war crimes even as most try to blame Russia.
The only proper course of action we can take to end the war as quickly as possible for the sake of the Ukrainian people, as well as our own economy, is to stop getting involved. An America-First attitude needs to prevail, and that means letting the regional conflict play out on its own.
