We’ve now entered into a new era of McCarthyism in which any semblance on nuanced thinking regarding the military conflict in Ukraine is akin to “Russian disinformation” and therefore punishable by law.
ABC’s “The View” reiterated this point on Monda after a couple of the co-hosts on show suggested that former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard should be investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for allegedly being a “Russian propagandists and shilling for [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.”
Gabbard is catching immense flack online after she posted about the U.S.-funded bioweapons lab in Ukraine, which are a main reason why NATO is so vehemently defending the region. She called for a ceasefire around the area in Ukraine where these labs are located as not to risk another pathogen outbreak. We all witnessed what happened in Wuhan after all…
There are 25+ US-funded biolabs in Ukraine which if breached would release & spread deadly pathogens to US/world. We must take action now to prevent disaster. US/Russia/Ukraine/NATO/UN/EU must implement a ceasefire now around these labs until they’re secured & pathogens destroyed pic.twitter.com/dhDTH5smIG

The former Rep. has since been maligned as a Russian disinformation agent and has been accused of treason by U.S. Senators and other high-ranking government officials.
… you claim that securing these labs (or even calling for securing these labs) is treasonous and will lead to a loss of life, when the exact opposite is obviously true. The spread of pathogens is what will cause the loss of life, not the prevention of such spread.

Now the leftist harpies on The View have given their two cents in voicing strong support for a full investigation into Gabbard and her so-called “pro-Putin” narrative.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg quickly chimed in, saying, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this, if they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent, if they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia.”
This is so deranged. The View calling for Tucker and Tulsi to be investigated by DOJ and suggest prison. pic.twitter.com/t96QRUVKrb

The View has become a cultural embarrassment for the United States.
Seriously, who watches this stuff?
To drive home the point that these people are truly our enemy (not Putin), Keith Olberman, a man who’s brain is completely broken because of Trump, called for the U.S. military to immediately imprison Tulsi Gabbard.
They are Russian Assets and there is a war. There's a case for detaining them militarily. Trials are a sign of good faith and patience on the part of democracy.

Now, if you still find yourself on the Left, perhaps you should ask yourself if these are the people you really wish to align yourself with…
