Adam Kinzinger Takes Time out From Pimping for a War With Russia to Punk Himself With an Internet Meme – Opinion

I’ll be the first to admit that we, on the right, have a real problem in Ukraine. There are a non-trivial number of conservatives who can’t differentiate between holding the position that the United States does not have a vital national interest in Ukraine and has acted with recklessness in pimping NATO membership for Ukraine and fluffing for Vladimir Putin. Just this morning, I unsubscribed to a newsletter I’ve used for over a year because the proprietor was doing a little happy dance over the prospect of a Russian victory in Ukraine. After Putin had rolled the troops over the border, my objective was to make sure the Ukrainians could prolong this war and bleed Russia’s Army. Nothing will get Putin’s attention and generally cool his jets like truckloads of Russian dead returning home to secret funerals.

There are many problems with the left. I will include those who say they are different but who never find any conservatives worth their time and support the left on major issues. In the case of Ukraine, one of these problems is that many people should be aware of how to push for US military action against Russia. This is one of the most stupid.

As the left leads, so must our quislings. Adam Kinzinger is one such example.

One of the most stupid and foolish ideas that has surfaced in recent weeks is a no-fly zone above Ukraine. While I can understand the reasons Ukraine has requested it, I don’t disagree with their game. What I don’t respect are people demanding that we start shooting down Russian aircraft and having them shoot down ours for no apparent purpose beyond starting a war. It is absurd to think that an aerial conflict can be controlled and doesn’t spill over into ground confrontations. Kinzinger claims he flew a gasoline station in the USAF for military experience. Kinzinger’s blinding intellect is not what makes him famous.

One of the eternal internet memes is “Sam Hyde.” There is a real Sam Hyde, a comedian, but his name (or derivations thereof) is routinely used on Twitter and Facebook as the perpetrator of virtually every mass shooting or act of terrorism. Wikipedia describes it as such.

Hoaxes about shooting and terrorist attacks

2016 Sam Hyde Internet trolls used similar photos to identify Hyde as the terrorist responsible for mass shootings and terrorist attacks.

Since 2015, Hyde has been frequently misreported as the perpetrator of numerous mass shootings and terrorist attacks by Internet trolls on websites such as 4chan and Twitter.[9][13] The hoaxes, which typically included photos of Hyde brandishing a semi-automatic weapon, reappeared so often on social media that The New York Times characterized “Sam Hyde is the shooter” as “an identifiable meme.”[14] The first instance of the prank was the Umpqua Community College shooting. CNN mistakenly included Hyde’s image on their coverage of the shooting.[15] Hyde has also been erroneously blamed for many other shootings,[9][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20] including when Representative Vicente Gonzalez mistakenly identified Hyde as the perpetrator of the Sutherland Springs church shooting.[21] Hyde’s image was shared across social media as being the driver of the car in Waukesha, Wisconsin, that drove into a holiday parade in November 2021.[22] Most recently his image has been misidentified as the ‘Ghost of Kiev‘ (along with the names ‘Сэм Хайденко’ (Sam Haydenko) or Samuyil Hyde), a Ukrainian fighter pilot who supposedly shot down 6 Russian planes on the 24th of February 2022.[23]

Yesterday, Kinzinger shared, then quickly deleted, a tweet ionizing “Samuyil Hyde,” who “has absolutely OWNED the Russian Airforce.”

It is Kinzinger at its best.

Strangely, one can sympathize with someone who is engulfed by an internet meme. But not enough to want to send young Americans off fighting and dying for unknown reasons.
