The Invasion of Ukraine is one of the most serious ground battles in decades. Russia has invaded a sovereign country in an attempt to take over.
The hosts of Fox News, though, think there are bigger issues that are much more worrisome. Accounting to Pete Hegseth, the importance of the Ukraine invasion pales in comparison to the ‘wokeness’ issue in the United States.
When asked about Joe Biden’s upcoming State of the Union, the Fox Host remarked:
“I don’t envy the White House speechwriter whose task it is to take the last year and a half and try to make it look rosy. I mean, look at that AP headline. That correctly depicts the state of America both at home and abroad. If he wants to talk about what’s happening in Ukraine, what will he say other than the things we told you would deter it didn’t work? If he wants to talk about Afghanistan, he’ll say what he said in the past, which is it was going to be this way no matter what, no matter who ended the war. Which, anyone who had been there, or who had seen it, knew that’s not true. It certainly didn’t have to end that way.”
Hegseth continued, “And then, here at home, he’s — what Lee Zeldin said is right. And, I was at CPAC this weekend talking to conservatives and young people, and they said yes, what is happening in Ukraine is important. But it pales in comparison to the crime I see in my streets, to the wokeness I see in my culture, to the inflation I see at my pocket book, to the real border I care about, which is the southern border, which is wide open. On every single issue, the quality of life of average Americans has gone down.”
