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

As both establishment Democrats and Republicans – including Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson – pushed for the United States to give Ukraine $61 billion in aid over the weekend, some of the things they said were amazing

Never mind the fact that after giving Ukraine more than $100 billion and its chances of defeating Russia getting worse by the minute, some lawmakers go even further than that absurdity with their words.

Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly may have stolen the show, claiming that the border between Russia and Ukraine was “OUR border.”

—Are you referring to the border between Virginia and Maryland? as expert Michael Tracey joked.

‘The border between Ukraine and Russia is OUR border’

“Some say we have to take care of our border first,” Connolly said on the House floor.

He continued: “The border between Ukraine and Russia is OUR border.”

Wow, is it? Just like the borders of the United States or the borders of our states? We must have missed that in geography class.

Connolly continued: “It is the line between depraved autocracy and the freedom-loving people who seek our democratic way of life. Do we have a part in that result? Yes. Without a doubt, yes. Are we going to take advantage of this opportunity? Will we stand shoulder to shoulder with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters, who for 1,151 days have kept the depraved and criminal dictator Vladimir Putin at bay, who respects no rules of war?

“We must face this test today,” he added. “We must be on the side of Ukraine. Slav Ukraine!”

What nerve he has. What country do you represent?

American politicians show no shame in sending taxpayer dollars to a losing effort

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

Never mind that most Americans do not want the United States to continue participating in this war. It doesn’t matter that we have already sent billions to Ukraine. Never mind that they have shown little progress against Russia. It doesn’t matter that the majority of Ukrainians do not want to fight and that the government of that country is recruiting them to put them directly into the meat grinder.

American politicians are going to fight tooth and nail to make sure that American tax money goes to this unwinnable war effort.
