Inevitably he'll say something that will turn this public image 180°. Eastern European politics and ideas just don't align so well with the western/US ideas. I see they seem to support him a lot on r/conservative too. I never checked the policies of his party, but inevitably there'll be something that will probably change his public image a lot, that's probably why he does not want to be in the centre of global attention...


Jaqulean

Well, he started out as a joke candidat, and won because of his open view on Ukraine (the other Candidats were also Russia-supported). Even if something like that happens, it will likely be something that will be normal for European Countries, but over-seas the Media will act as if he murdered someone.


F-21

Yeah, that's exactly what I meant... At the moment it seems both sides in the US praise him, but I don't think that ever lasted in politics.


jeffe_el_jefe

You want different things from a wartime leader than a peacetime leader. Apparently he did have some policies a lot of us wouldn’t agree with, but for now this guy seems to be exactly what they need.


JTP1228

What are some of the controversial policies?


blong217

I read them and they seem to be a mix of liberal and centrist views. They'd be considered liberal in the US but not far left.


MattyBizzz

I tried to hop over to r/conservative to see their stance on things since Trump literally praised Putin yet again the day before the invasion , but every time I tried to read thru a post it devolved into something completely unrelated about BLM or how “Biden is so weak, sanctions lol”. Don’t think some of them would be happy unless it’s anything short of boots on the ground and full WW3, at which point it would be “Biden completely provoked WW3”

Humans are better than Gods, we created them all after all... With nothing but the power of our imagination, and subsequent belief.


BigZmultiverse

He didn’t want his own country doing it. Other countries doing it is good because it gives us an example of what a good leader looks like. We need to have less tolerance for the garbage candidates that keeps being put in front of us.


fludmaps

I think there's a difference between supporting and amplifying his message and deifying him - like actually drawing him as a super hero. This is not anywhere near MAGA levels, but it's dangerous to hold political leaders up as superhuman or god-like.

Ammunication! That's a great neologism. To communicate with ammunition. I love it!

It's how you communicate with Putin.


BradPittInYourCloset

some of the most reddit shit i've ever seen


p_rite_1993

I love how Reddit is like “all politicians should not be trusted, we are so smart and above it all” and is now acting like Zelenskyy is the best politician to exist in all human history based on a carefully curated image over the last week (I bet most this obsessive admirers didn’t know who he was a week ago). It’s possible to admire his current actions and not turn him into a freakin deity or super hero. The fact that this image can get 22k upvotes so fast is a lesson in the effectiveness of propaganda when you have a charismatic figure in the middle of said propaganda. I’m sure I’ll get called a Russian asset just for pointing out that people should maybe not get their panties all wet so easily. Obligatory, fuck Putin! I hope the Ukrainian people continue to find the strength and courage to keep fighting for their home. And I hope the West actual brings out the metaphorical big guns on Russia and Putin’s circle.


ParmenideanProvince

its astroturf. This is one of the most trafficked sites on the web, so of course there's going to be a ton of organisations and money curating what gets on the front page. Currently the amount of NATO propaganda is insane.


PixelationIX

Yup, if you speak anything ill about NATOs factual history no matter how small or big, you will get called Russian bot, scum etc.


YourBonesAreMoist

Or if you dare to say Ukraine government has a considerable amount of Nazis within And that we are apparently fine with associating ourselves with Nazis if it's for "the greater good" [Or that supplies donated by NATO are ending up in the hands of said Nazis](https://imgur.com/a/i3x6T35) Definitelly a russian bot


Brown_Panther-

Real world isnt a superhero movie.


Stereodog

Reddit is so weird


notsure500

If reddit existed during 9/11, Redditors would be making Rudy Guiliani into a hero and meming him. Then years later we'd be embarrassed as the hero is best friends with Trump.


F-21

People change. Zelensky does not want to be in the centre of global attention, cause inevitably (if they succeed and survive...) some policy will turn his public image 180°... Especially since many eastern European ideas are still quite different to the western norms (in some ways way more conservative, in others way more "socialist", so in the eyes of US residents their centrist party can very quickly look bad to ideologies of both US parties).


cattaclysmic

I dont think he really cares what either American SJW og Trumpists think. The US is extreme and in europe there generally more room for nuance in views.


cilica

/r/cringetopia


YouAintABard

Almost every single post on Russia or Ukraine is top tier cringe. This picture is just the pinnacle so far. It’s the obverse side of the coin from the Putin made from penises mosaic.


Chairmanwowsaywhat

It's getting real cringe now


LovelyClaire

Reddit is 99% of the time cringe


explision

This reminds me of all these photoshops of trump being super manly with guns in his hands. Super cringe. This pic too.


Cwya

Ah come on, it’s /r/pics. It’s mostly just dingbats upvoting peoples wives jobs. You can enjoy a superpower losing to a former satellite state.


tayman12

> You can enjoy a superpower losing to a former satellite state. i know this is the fun exciting way to look at things but Ukraine has only slowed Russia down, Ukraine is not winning. The truth is we don't really know how long Russia can keep the attack going


LazyLemur

It’s not about the politics or whether you support Ukraine or not. This kind of hero worship with literally anyone is fucking weird


Cwya

It’s been a half a week into a country’s invasion and the head of state hasn’t taken the national treasury and ran. Thats usually how it goes.


[deleted]

It was funny when the pandemic hit and food delivery people were considered super heroes on reddit.


filthworld

Americans literally think global conflicts are marvel movies


alxwx

I’m completely with you. This man is enormously impressive IRL, fantastical depiction like this makes him look a type of Trump


Super-Ebb2811

The obsession over this dude is bizarre. I saw a user from Madison, WI USA call him “our little hero”. What the fuck?


Au_Mind_QuestionMark

So it’s not just Reddit? Either way, I mean, dude deserves the praise.


LazyLemur

Gonna be honest. Reddit is literally the only place I have seen Zelensky head shopped onto a superhero’s body.


igotagoodfeeling

Just like with most Reddit, I get why someone made it, but it’s probably in poor taste and a bit misguided


Spirited_Ask_2389

No this is really fucking weird. It was creepy and dumb when it was trump and its creepy and dumb to do this now.


-Reddit_Account-

Right? I mean yeah Ukraine needs support and Russia is bad and everything but bloody hell this shit is cringe. I can't read the phrase "slava Ukraini" without hearing it in an out-of-place accent, being said by someone posting war memes.


erizzluh

it's really weird when you take a step back and we're over here memeing and romanticizing this guy who's currently fighting for his life and his countrymen's lives.


[deleted]

It's peak Reddit to use Marvel as foundation to meme over a goddamn invasion.


Pera_Espinosa

It comes down to the easiest path to karma.


ohnoitsthetruth

I'm all for supporting Ukraine but seeing this unironically upvoted to the top might be hands down the most embarrassed I've ever been to have a Reddit account


dante__11

Seriously dude this is dumb.


spaceageranger

r/marvelcringe


West-Arm-9729

this isn't a marvel movie. real, non-superhero people are dying.


KanzakiNao017

I agree. An actual war is happening and people thought they would help by making a superhero poster. Stop romanticizing war.


imbored53

This whole ordeal has been so weird. People are experiencing the horrors of war and dying, and reddit is packed with memes and glorifications of the conflict. I'm all for supporting Ukraine, but it's bizarre that so many people seem to think they are doing their part by making and upvoting all this meme material. Even worse, everyone is making this whole thing about Zelenskyy when thats the exact opposite of what he wants.


Heyzuzz

This is the same country still undergoing a conflict for wearing masks. It's the same old story. These are people who do not know true hardship. They've grown up with no conflict and no trouble. They don't understand and will never understand what is going on. It's content to them. Entertainment. Another superhero movie.


ATCQ_

Assuming you mean USA, but how do you know OP is American? Marvel/superheroes are popular all over the world, and so is Reddit. It's definitely cringe tho


FluffyCoconut

Redditors try not to relate every real-life event to pop-culture \[Challenge\]\[FAIL\]


wreakon

I know same thoughts exactly. Projecting truth onto a marvel comics entertainment movie is extremely ignorant. Pretty much summarizes peoples' understanding of real life... not much. And sick to think people are feeling entertained by this war.


GrandMasterMara

oh... isnt this a bit too much, dont you think?


FixatedOnYourBeauty

Yeah, let's not Trumpify him.


NitrousIsAGas

Word of the day is "Jingoism".


Volsunga

Jingoism normally refers to support of offensive wars. The term comes from the support of British Imperialism. The deification of Zelensky is certainly puffery, but calling it jingoist is incorrect at best.


Brown_Panther-

People love to hero worship politicians.


CuntsInSpace

It's weird how propaganda feels dirty and wrong whether you support the message or not.


hockeydudeguy55

vincentofearth

Okay, Reddit. I support Ukraine as much as the next guy, but can we stop glorifying this guy? The cult of personality that social media is building around him could set him up to be the next enemy Ukraine has to face. We've seen this story before.


Brown_Panther-

Pretty sure most people glorifying him aren't even from his country.


resilience19

His approval rating in Ukraine was pretty abysmal pre-war: [https://www.statista.com/statistics/1100076/volodymyr-zelensky-s-approval-rating-ukraine/](https://www.statista.com/statistics/1100076/volodymyr-zelensky-s-approval-rating-ukraine/)


East_Deer7419

Thank you. If the Ukrainian people want to support him great. But I guarantee 99.9% of the people up voting this shit know nothing about his actual politics or his presidency or even what the Ukrainian people thought of him before a week ago.


sanserif80

For real though. This is unadulterated propaganda. This should be distasteful regardless of the side taken here.


klparrot

The trick is to not become invested. Having heroes helps morale in tough times, but you also need to be able to let go of them when they aren't needed, or god forbid, when they're lost.


East_Deer7419

Your average redditor posting safely from the couch while surfing Netflix does not need a morale boost and this is NOT a tough time for them. The Ukrainian people, absolutely. But none of this is about them. It's just stupid social media bullshit because it entertains the masses.


frayleaf

In all seriousness, it stinks, but we're all not perfect. Odds are some day even this great man will disappoint in one way or another. Best not to raise him too high, it would be unfair to him as a real flawed person like the rest of us.

Oh cmon give it a rest already. The guy is clearly very courageous. The level of Reddit jacking this dude off for upvotes has surpassed the point of cringey. This post is almost as courageous as starting a change.org petition.


tommmmmmmmy93

Appreciate your sentiment and time spent on the edit... but this is a real life war hero fighting for democracy and the freedom of his people. Dressing him up as a marvel superhero is virtually insulting. To even compare him to something fictional whilst he saves lives and protects his very real country is laughable. Again, appreciate you're being supportive in your own way but this is in bad taste. ITS A REAL WAR


ResidentsEnjoyer

This is why I don’t tell anyone I use reddit
