During the third day of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene used her speaking time, during a speech before and audience of conservative activists from across the country, to go after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s recent remarks regarding America’s further involvement in the conflict against Russia.
Greene firmly said that Zelensky should keep his “hands off of our sons and daughters,” sparking almost immediate media criticism.
The Republican has been an vocal critic of the United States’ involvement funding and providing billions in aid and weapons to the Ukrainian fight against invading Russian forces, having claimed that this will only further escalate a potential war between the United States and Russia outright.
Her specific choice of words reference a recent series of remarks made by the Ukrainian president in February, in which he stated that should Ukraine fall to Russia, that other nations (including members of NATO) could encounter the same fate.

During a recent news conference discussing the anniversary of the first year of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Zelensky stated, “The US is never going to give up on the NATO member states. If it happens so that Ukraine, due to various opinions and weakening — depleting — of assistance, loses, Russia is going to enter Baltic states, NATO member states, and then the US will have to send their songs and daughters, exactly the same way we are sending, their sons and daughters to war.”
“And they will have to fight,” he continued, “because it’s NATO that we’re talking about. And they will be dying, God forbid, because it’s a horrible thing. I wish for peace and Ukrainian support to the United States.”
Greene told the CPAC audience that she would stay “committed to saying no money to Ukraine, and that country needs to find peace, not war.”
“And while I will look at a camera and directly tell Zelensky, you’d better leave your hands off of our sons and daughters because they’re not dying over there,” she added.

Obviously, as soon as her speech was over, liberals began to bash her remarks as well as those in attendance.
“Foreign Policy Fools,” tweeted Daily Kos contributor Aldo’s Pennyfarthing. “CPAC attendees act like like trained seals. I imagine MTGreene tossed them [fish] after each Pro-Putin statement.”

Democratic strategist Greg Pinelo added “Putin will do everything he can to help Republicans steal the 2024 election. His agents are in place,” thus spreading misinformation by referencing the disproven conspiracy theory claiming the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia to ‘steal’ the 2016 election victory from failed candidate Hillary Clinton.

Greene Demands Accountability
Over a week ago, Greene had announced she intended to submit a bill which would force an audit of all the taxpayer dollars that have been provided to Ukraine during it’s yearlong conflict.
Greene stated, “It’s going to force Congress to give the American people an audit” she said during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “And that is exactly what the American people need, an audit of Ukraine, because we have no idea where all this money’s going.”
She also added that “The only border they [Democrats] care about is Ukraine, not America’s southern border. Under Republicans, not another penny will go to Ukraine. Our country comes first. They don’t care about our border or our people.”

I suspect that the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is very convenient and useful to Joe Bidenitis. The war takes most of the potential for holding the Bidens accountable for the absolute mess he and his malAdministration have created both inside and out of the United States.
The war grants a superb excuse to the moronic Mass Media for NOT reporting on Bidens’ deliberate dictator-like activities.
Certainly nobody outside the Demonrat Party believes for one split second that Biden has at any time past, present or future, acted in the best interests of the USA – Perish the thought !
The Russian “invasion” of Ukraine certainly follows a predictable path. A large Russian-speaking area of Ukraine – itself previously a part of the USSR ( not forgetting Chernobyl ! ) was prior to the invasion fobidden to speak or use the Russian language according to all sources. This is not exactly what I would call a “Friendly or even reasonable” action if true and to someone like Vladimir Putin, with his Hard-Man reputation at stake, it was very predictably like a “Red Rag to a Bull !”
So there are two sides to this story – there usually are !!
It is now time to suspend aggression and Talk Peace !
How can this be achieved ?
By a mixture of “Carrots & Realism” – Donald Trump understands this – Bidenitis never will – it is against every cell in his body to think “Positive and Good Thoughts !” He is simply a bitter and negative senile old man.
The sooner the pestilence in the White House is gone – the sooner the World can step back from WWIII – I just hope there is still time – for our children and grand-childrens’ sakes ! ( In ALL countries ! )
who the hell ? does he think he is , expects our sons and daughters to die for him
HE KEEPS DEMANDING . AND BIDEN KEEPS GIVING
to tell you the truth i smell a RAT
this is a lady after my own heart, unafraid to speak and discover the truth.
MTG nailed my sentiments exactly!! The blackmailer, Zelensky, deserves nothing from the US! The only reason our politicians and Mr Biden are interested is Biden is being blackmailed and our leaders in BOTH Houses in Congress don’t want to stop the money laundering that has made them filthy rich. OUR sons and daughters will never die on Ukraine soil. So far, Mr Biden has only had a small taste of our angst on J6, he’ll reap more, much more if he thinks he’s going to send our premier military personnel to Ukraine! One drop of their blood shed in Ukraine will force an immediate response from the citizens and the gate will swing against a tyrannical government. If you must send military to die to save your riches send the delusional, emasculated generals and DOD upper echelons! They’re not worth anything to us… they’re the reason we are possibly looking at a WW III, let them take their “white rage”, DEI, war mongering azzes over there to Ukraine and bleed all over their corrupt soil, that’s the epitome of diversity, equity and inclusive so send their pompous azzes!
I sure do agree with MTG, All Real Americans want to know where our TAX Dollars are going, when they should be staying in America instead of some corrupt Communist country.
SHE’S 100% RIGHT.
Iran is within weeks of nuke, it will all be over soon enough
yes, our country comes first, our sons and daughters also come first
what is zelinsky doing with the money
biden percent and who else percent of our tax dollars we have worked hard for
and your fighting over 29,000 square miles of land not like the entire country of ukraine
and you don’t know the deal prior president had with russia
so biden should mind his own country and pay attention to our border and illegals and drugs and inflation and stop playing king of the hill with ukraine
A hundred and ten Billion is a lot of money, and we could have finishedour wall to keep us safe. Those billions should be enough to get what he needs, since we gave him equipment. Zalenski definitely needs to tell us what he spent ouoir money on. No more for him. We need it too.!Russia wanted to get together for a peace treaty, and Zalenski said no…..only because he would be asking the demented old man to send more money and equipment, and the old man will do it.
Initially I loved MTG,… BUT her Russian-bot-like smearing of President Zelensky of Ukraine—the legitimately elected President of that Sovereign Nation is SHAMEFUL! As a MAGA Conservative I’m disgusted with the denigration of Ukraine. I fully support Ukraine’s fight—-AND IT IS THE UKRAINIANS WHO ARE FIGHTING & DYING FOR FREEDOM,.. NOT Americans –(except for the valiant volunteers who understand what’s at stake for Ukraine,.. Europe,… and the world). MTG is not only IGNORANT of the history—including the 1994 Budapest Agreement, in which the USA, Britain, AND Russia agreed to guarantee Ukraine’s safety and Sovereign Borders in EXCHANGE for Ukraine giving up ALL OF IT’S NUCLEAR ARSENAL. At the time Ukraine possessed the 3rd LARGEST NUCLEAR ARSENAL INTHE WORLD, behind only the USA and Russia! They also de-armed of Bombers, jet-fighters, Arlillery, and long-range weaponry….. with the assurance that USA and Britain would at least back-them-up if Russia should attack. In 2014, Obama-admin dropped-the-ball. ThisUkraine-military-assistance has nothing to do with the Biden-Crime-familie’s money-laundering shenanigans with different Oligarchs, like Zlovchesky or Pinchuk. Putin invaded, hoping to derive assistance from embittered and ignorant Repulicans and Conservatives,… and such folks being ripe ttargets of Moscow-propaganda!
MTG, and many naive ‘Conservaive’ cohorts have been bambuzzled by Moscow, AND are playing right into the hands of Democrats,… AGAIN! MTG and cohorts are so damned confused they’re siding with Putin, Xhi (CCP),.. Iran, N. Korea, and Nicaragua— all LEFTIST TYRANNIES!
How paradoxical and SHAMEFUL is that?
Border Sovereignty is Border Soverreignty,.. whether Ukraine’s or the USA’s!
I totally agree with what MTG said in her CPAC speech..
Zelinski has pretty big kahunas throwing all those threats around. Funny what an open check book does to a nazi! Biden has given him a false sense of security. I don’t believe the majority of the American people share Bidumbs narrative.
Pinelo and his dem cult need to find a new narrative. His 2016 Russian collusion bs has been proven false. Killary lost the election because the majority of the American ppl didn’t want her to be president.. PERIOD
What a clueless moron…she is the only one thinking g about sending American troops…no one else has EVER mentioned it…just wants her name in the daily news….PLEASE MAKE IT STOP
This quagmire is the work of Joe Biden. He could not wait to break America’s commitment to peace in Ukraine by going back on former peace treaties with Russia and get Ukraine into NATO. Now 157,000 Ukrainian and 16000 Russian troops have died in a war that was preventable.
