Liberals & their favorite news outlets such as @DemocracyNow tar both western & eastern elites with the same brush.

Most Progressives also.

It seems nothing & nobody is good enough for them when it comes to East & West.

Why is that?

Let’s see if there really IS moral equivalency.

Which elite fought bloody unequal wars in the following countries generating chaos in their wake?

Vietnam Afghanistan Iraq Libya Syria

Which deposed elected leaders & supported coups in Latin America?

Which elite West or East threatens Iran, Venezuela, Cuba & Nicaragua with regime change efforts & does all it can including embargoes & sanctions to bring regime change about?

Which elite constantly deals in threats & demands obedience to its every wish?

Was any of the above down to Russia or China?

No, it was US elites that did these things in the past & continue to do them now.

@DemocracyNow is wholly wrong in its approach to point at eastern & western elites & accuse them of having amoral equivalency.

This is not to say either side is totally innocent or perfect in all they say or do.

Russia & China have reason to wonder if all their past actions were 100% correct.

However, neither have committed the level of crimes against humanity the USA has.

@DemocracyNow can, does & no doubt will continue to sit in splendid pure isolation saying: “A Plague on both your houses”.

For them both the western & eastern elites are equivalent political devils undermining the rights of the downtrodden righteous.

Does the inference of amoral equivalency have any consequences? Yes.

It serves to minimize the extent of US crimes against humanity by inferring its “enemies” are just as bad.

This is observably untrue & @DemocracyNow should cease this amoral practice.

Russia & China may not seem nice & cuddly to @DemocracyNow.

They don’t lay down to have their bellies tickled in passive postures.

They don’t fit the liberal/progressive ethos of touchy-feely vulnerability.

Such postures would be national suicide.

@DemocracyNow provide a superb service most of the time.

But, by insisting the East is just as bad as the West they spread an obvious untruth.

There's no amoral equivalency. What there is, is an attempt by the East to confront elite western criminality.
