I noticed this during the floor speeches on CACR 32 (setting up a public referendum on independence).
A pro-DC guy got up to condemn CACR 32 and NH independence. Then Max Abramson got the floor, to question him and support our independence. Abramson said this:
“Do you believe that the people of the Ukraine have the right to resist Soviet military
But then whoever was “in charge” at the moment, (was it Speaker Packard?)
interrupted Abramson saying:
“This is not anything to do with the bill.”
When I got on WBZ Boston during a Ukraine discussion and asked why the host thinks Ukraine deserves independence but we don’t… I got a similar response. They quickly dismissed the call and possibly had it removed from their audio archive.
This is evidence that Ukraine is a winning issue for us , if we just bring it up. Nowhere is the hypocrisy more naked than on an American who supports Ukraine’s self determination but not New Hampshire’s.
So NHexit.com’s updated motto is this: “If Ukraine deserves independence, so does New Hampshire.”
Also… the term “pro-DC” is useful for triggering independence foes…it’s accurate, but they hate it just as much as they hate being called out on their double standard.
