Listen to a reading of this article: One year ago then-MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance announced he had left the network to join the fight against Russia with the Ukrainian International Legion, telling MSNBC's Joy Reid "I'm done talking" to much fanfare from the blue-and-yellow-flag-waving crowd.
It is because of info like this that I look forward to your daily articles... not to mention (So I will) your views & opinions. Thanks for doing what you do! Have long wondered about Nance and what his purpose in Ukraine was, other than doing your basic shameless self-promotion for his 'brand'.
Nance is one of the biggest pro-Ukraine frauds out there. Good to see more exposure of his childish and ludicrous behavior.
Oh yeah, I read about this guy last summer. It’s quite disturbing how many brainwashed idiots we have running around these days...
Narcissism and war are an exceptionally nasty combination. At least Nance is unimportant
You cannot "steal" valor that never existed in the first place.
He should hand the batton to Sean Penn.
My favorite oxymoron, from scores of others, continues to prevail among the Nancys of the world: "Military Intelligence."
This was predictable: the propaganda was getting so hysterical that, in some cases, it was bound to become its own enemy. Trouble is, you can't bet that it will self-destruct before it destroys everything else. CNN posits that Tik-Tok and the balloons - remember them? - are an ongoing plot to propagandize China values and warp young American minds: replace US values with China's.
China hasn't attacked another country in 400 years. I can see only good coming out of this, if it is a "plot".
Nance is a diversion by the NYT from reporting on the Nazi militia influence and atrocities, the lack of accountability for US funds and weapons, corruption, the 8 year war on Russian affiliated citizens in the Donbas, and the Ukrainian losing military campaign.
NYT would not report on any of this.
I used to ocasionally hear this guy when he would call in to a local NPR affiliate. He was a regular, their "intelligence expert". This was long before he joined the legion (is that what they're calling it?) He was a shameless self promoter, clearly bullshitting, perpetually throwing the race card, and worshipped by the show's ultra left wing hosts. I listened to the show, with some fascination, to kind of keep track of what my Deep Blue neighbors were likely thinking about various subjects. The show's "Panel" always rubbed me the wrong way, in a laugh out loud kind of way, but Nance would absolutely set my teeth on edge. I can't imagine what he's like in person, in a dangerous situation as well, one of those tools who can set off your grifter alarm just walking towards you from 100 yards away, no doubt. Good Lord, I imagine he must be the run-away super star of every power lefty New York dinner party he attends, whenever he is able to get back from "The Front Lines". Thanks for archive-linking the Times story, it looks fascinating.
He was from MSNBC. What else would you expect? The worst from the worst.
Fake green army man claims he is going to Ukraine to combat Russians, turns around and runs home with his tail between his legs. Nance-pants is the most blatant charlatan to be employed by MSDNC ever, with the possible exception of the homophobic Russian Hacker Hunter, Joy Anne Reid.
Nance gave an interview to NPR Boston on Jan 7, 2021 claiming that US intel had been following the anti-Biden Jan 6th protest movement on Telegram for months, which prompted me at the time to ponder in how far military and intel officials were central to organizing the ensuing riot that day. Naturally, the interviewer at National Propaganda Radio didn't bother asking any substantive questions, but simply let Nance as a public deep state ghoul push the line prewritten in Langley. Seriously, F these people all the way to the depths of hell.
P.S. I love "imperial smut rag" line. GR8 band name!!
Or maybe the corruption in Ukraine is so completely out of control that even this total shill for the empire couldn't stand it, couldn't get in on it, and couldn't stop it?
All the usual, warmongering suspects back Ukraine. Nobody apart from China is suing for peace.
