Letter to the Editor: Why Does Kent Parrot Putin Propaganda?


Joe Kent was last month quoted on FOX News: “The West’s support of Ukraine was killing people, because the support was giving Ukraine an incentive not to agree to a peace deal with Russia.”

TASS, the Russian news agency, quickly repeated his statement as part of Russia’s propaganda machine. They stated: “According to the Republican, whose candidacy was supported by former U.S. leader Donald Trump, the escalation in Ukraine is ‘a great way to divert attention from the political crisis’ within the United States.”

Crisis? What crisis?

Why is Joe Kent feeding Putin and his murderous minions ammunition that stokes hatred of the United States by the Russian people? Why doesn’t he mention the killing of innocent Ukrainian civilians by Russians? Is he an agent of the Russian Federation?
