Zelensky Wins John F. Kennedy Courage Award for Defending Democracy

They should have awarded him a suit instead.

How can a man who literally refuses to put a shirt on when giving public speeches win any award – other than a sports award?

But the idea of “democracy in the Ukraine” – this is just nonsensical.

The Ukraine has less “democracy” than Russia, by a lot.

Some form of free debate and political opposition is allowed in Russia, even since the Ukraine conflict began. There is none of that in the Ukraine. And they are constantly assassinating people.

New York Post:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is among five people named Thursday as recipients of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for acting to protect democracy.

Zelensky was chosen because of the way he has “marshaled the spirit, patriotism and untiring sacrifice of the Ukrainian people in a life-or-death fight for their country,” as Russia pours in troops and assaults cities and towns, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation said.

The foundation said four U.S. officials were chosen for standing up for free and fair elections, as the system is challenged in ways it has never been before.

They are: Republican U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers and Fulton County, Georgia, elections worker Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.

Caroline Kennedy and her son, Jack Schlossberg, will present the awards May 22 at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston. The award was created by the family of the late president to honor public figures who risk their careers by embracing unpopular positions for the greater good, and is named after Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “Profiles in Courage.”

I wish they would just admit that “democracy really just means anal sex being promoted at kindergarten.”
