“Some of you may die but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make” -Lord Farquaad 2001 .

  1. Usually, public speakers know that the crowds they speak to aren't very bright (or just aren't as smart) and thus, can be manipulated ... and if you can control a crowd, you've got strength in your cause, even if you know that cause is bullshit.

  2. I think every time one of these political or religious leaders says something like this they should immediately be recruited into the army and sent to the frontlines.

  3. Homeboy is gonna be really confused when he dies and is surrounded by eternal fire and suffering instead of rainbows and cupcakes 🤣

  4. We bought Iraq war propaganda in the US and it, too, was obvious horseshit. So I wouldn’t be too smug and judgemental about it. I know people can’t wrap their minds around what I just said but that’s just proving my point.

  5. Of course the average Russian knows it’s bullshit. They’re human beings, not cantaloupes. Maybe drop the xenophobia and recognize there is no class warfare among the rich and powerful.

  6. What were the Ukrainian men told when they wanted to leave Ukraine but were stopped by armed soldiers? “Please come die for us?” It’s a war. It was probably more along the lines of what this psycho is quoted saying. They have to motivate the soldiers to fight. Civilians became soldiers overnight. If you don’t like it, don’t support war. Period.
