Today is not the anniversary of the war in Ukraine. That is just one of the propaganda lies by people who are afraid to stand up for peace and fight against murder and injustice.

The Anniversary That Isn’t One

Today, pretty much any media outlet in the West is running a story commemorating the “one year anniversary” of the war in Ukraine. That is, of course, bullshit. I wrote a newsletter issue on this today and then decided I would have to talk about this on the podcast as well.

For previous coverage of the war, please reference this tag. The first episode I released on this topic was episode 109.
