The Odd Allies Who Are United in Not Supporting Ukraine

In America a very odd alliance has occured between those constituencies that do not support Ukraine in it's fight with Russia.


It is, at the very least, ironic. Ironic because in most other situations they are diametrically opposed to each other's opinions.

Hard core Trump Republicans (the majority of them now) no longer see Russia as a threat. You know, because Trump loves Putin (seriously). So they are opposed to supporting Ukraine as Russia takes over parts of the country and threatens war to take more.

Hard core progressives generally don't want to get involved at all in foreign situations at all, and are definitely against it in this instance since it might pulls us into a dumb war.

I understand both sentiments. But it is an odd alliance of interests.
