Distracting from the embarrassment?

Shortly after the media hyped the fact that the Azov Battalion had dropped neo-nazi insignia from their uniforms, it was revealed that gay soldiers in Ukraine are now heading to war wearing a “unicorn LGBTQ” patch.

Yes, really.

As Zero Hedge highlighted, after months of downplaying or outright denying Azov’s direct links to neo-nazism, the media heralded the fact that the unit had dropped a “neo-Nazi symbol exploited by Russian propagandists.”

“Ah yes… when these fighters proudly display Nazi symbols, the real problem is Russian officials and media pointing it out: all very inconvenient of course,” commented the news outlet.

Perhaps in an effort to distract from the embarrassment, the legacy media is now celebrating a new unicorn patch worn by gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Ukrainian troops.

“As volunteer fighters Oleksandr Zhuhan and Antonina Romanova pack for a return to active duty, they contemplate the unicorn insignia that gives their uniform a rare distinction – a symbol of their status as an LGBTQ couple who are Ukrainian soldiers,” reported Reuters.

“Members of Ukraine’s LGBTQ community who sign up for the war have taken to sewing the image of the mythical beast into their standard-issue epaulettes just below the national flag,” states the article.

“Was the DC regime’s $40 billion aid package contingent on rebranding the Azov Battalion-led Ukrainian military into LGBTQ warriors?” asks Chris Menahan.

“The DC regime loves raising the LGBT flag over all the nations they occupy, so it wouldn’t surprise me if that was the case,” he added.

As we previously highlighted, shortly after the war began, British MI6 spy chief Richard Moore asserted that the conflict was partly about protecting the sanctity of “LGBTQ+ rights”.

“With the tragedy and destruction unfolding so distressingly in Ukraine, we should remember the values and hard won freedoms that distinguish us from Putin, none more than LGBT+ rights. So let’s resume our series of tweets to mark #LGBTHM2022,” he wrote.

Critics accused Moore of engaging in vacuous virtue signalling.

Yes, the values of Western civilization didn’t exist until the creation of LGBTQIA2S+ rights in the 1960s. You virtue signalling idiot. The only hard won freedom I want is from woke ideologues like you,” wrote one.

As we highlighted at the time, MI6 also marked the day Putin invaded Ukraine by tweeting about the success of their gay coffee morning.
