Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald reveals truth about Ukraine’s Zelensky in brutal Twitter thread

(Natural News) There isn’t much that gets past investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald, an originalist truth-teller who doesn’t allow his personal liberal political and cultural views to stand in the way of accuracy and honesty.

And he showed that quality again in a recently posted Twitter thread that dropped some brutal truths about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the leader the West has fawned over, showered weapons and money on, and the country where Hunter and Joe Biden managed to make a fortune, according to reports.

“Before Russia’s invasion and since, Zelensky has abolished basic liberties: shuttered opposition media, outlawed parties, imprisoned dissidents. As Ukraine demands money and arms from the West, they now want to export this repression to our countries with McCarthyite blacklists,” Greenwald began, noting that he, along with other figures including former U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), have been banned from the country.

“You can see the full Ukrainian blacklist, obtained by @unherd. Beyond the individuals listed above, officially maligned are @JeffDSachs, @RandPaul, former Brazil President @LulaOficial, Col. Douglas MacGregor, Caleb Maupin, Marine LePen and many others,” he continued — the theme being that most of them are critics of Kyiv.

“It takes extreme audacity for Zelansky and his henchmen to go around the world demanding other nations send massive amounts of weapons and money to him, then try to suppress dissent in our countries by smearing journalists and citizens who question,” Greenwald continued in a tweet containing a screenshot of his full statement to alternative media outlet Unherd.

Greenwald went on to explain that he and the others ‘blacklisted’ by Ukraine were being classified by Zelenskyy’s government as “Russian propagandists” — a familiar smear of anyone who dares to point out the obvious: Before the war, Ukraine wasn’t the bastion of fairness, equality and democracy it is now being made out to be by Western globalists whose job it is to ‘pick a side’ in such conflicts.

For her part, Gabbard — who has been critical of the United States’ and NATO’s rank picking of sides in this war — says that she sees parallels between Russian authoritarianism and a growing authoritarianism on the American left.

“Tulsi, it is striking when you see Putin propaganda and you line it up against Biden propaganda,” Fox News host Jesse Watters said as he interviewed her in March. “Do you think that we’re at risk of kind of moving in that direction right now?”

Agreeing that under the left and Joe Biden the U.S. is definitely “moving in that direction,” she went on to claim, correctly (unlike the Poynter Institute ‘fact check’ claimed), that U.S. leaders and media are “afraid of even a single voice coming out as challenging the power elite.”

“This is why we’re seeing not only still most of the mainstream media very vigorously defending and pushing the Biden propaganda … It’s not enough that they also have Google and Big Tech basically working for them and with them to control what information we see and what information we don’t see,” she said.

“This is what’s so dangerous about the place that we’re in right now as a country, where this idea, this principle, this foundation of freedom of speech, freedom of expression is directly under threat and under attack. And you’re right, it’s not so different. What’s happening here is not so different from what we’re seeing happening in Russia, where you’ve got state TV and controlled messaging across the board. This is where we’re at,” she added.
