After Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) belabored the obvious by implying that the US, not Putin, blew up the Nordstream gas pipeline, the maverick politician was accused of “anti-American propaganda” and even “treason.” Greene had tweeted:
“I predicted back in Feb this year that US interest in Ukraine was about natural gas deals. With the apparent attack on Nord Stream 2, everyone should take notice. I have voted NO to every penny & US involvement in the war in Ukraine bc [because] it has nothing to do with Democracy.
“US interest in Ukraine isn't about preserving Democracy it's about natural gas deals to Germany and Europe. And small arms contracts in the billions. The winners are weapons manufacturers natural gas suppliers & invested politicians. The losers are American taxpayers...”
When truth is treason, truth-tellers are traitors. But who are they betraying? Certainly not the American Republic founded in the 1780s under the banner of anti-imperialism. On the contrary, courageous patriots like Greene are betraying the Empire of Lies—a term popularized by Russian president Putin that is unfortunately all too accurate.
Just as the Devil’s greatest trick was to convince the world he doesn’t exist, the Empire’s greatest lie is to convince the world that it is not an empire but a democracy.
