Democrat Gerry Connolly Proclaims ‘Ukrainian-Russian Border Is Our Border!’ On the House Floor

As both establishment Democrats and Republicans – including GOP Speaker of the House Mike Johnson – pushed for the U.S. to give Ukraine $61 billion in aid over the weekend, some of the things they said were mind blowing.

Never mind the fact that after giving Ukraine well north of $100 billion already and their chances of defeating Russia getting worse by the minute, some lawmakers go beyond even that absurdity with their words.

Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly might have stole the show, claiming that the Russia-Ukraine border was “OUR Border.”

‘You mean like the border between Virginia and Maryland?’ as pundit Michael Tracey joked.

‘The Ukrainian-Russian Border is OUR Border’

“Some say we have to deal with our border first,” Connolly said on the House floor.

He continued, “The Ukrainian-Russian border is OUR border.”

Wow, it is? Same as America’s borders or our states’ borders? We must have missed that in geography class.

Connolly went on, “It is the line between depraved autocracy and freedom-loving people seeking our democratic way of life. Do we have a share in that outcome? Yes. Undeniably yes. Are we going to seize this opportunity? Will we stand shoulder to shoulder with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters, who for 1151 days have been holding at bay the depraved, criminal dictator Vladimir Putin, who does not respect any norms of war?”

“We must meet this test today,” he added. “We must stand by Ukraine’s side. Slava Ukraine!”

What nerve he has. What country does he represent?

American Politicians Show Zero Shame in Sending Taxpayer Dollars to a Losing Effort

To be clear: This Democrat, as did most Democrats and many Republicans last week, believes that prioritizing America’s southern border over the Ukraine-Russia border is wrong and immoral.

Never mind that a majority of Americans do not want the U.S. taking part in this war anymore. Never mind that we have sent billions upon billions to Ukraine already. Never mind that they have shown little progress against Russia. Never mind that most Ukrainians don’t want to fight and that country’s government is drafting them to force them right into the meatgrinder.

American politicians are going to fight tooth and nail to make sure Americans’ tax dollars go toward this unwinnable war effort.

Forever.
