Skip to comments.Why Conservative Americans Admire Putin

After the Great Patriotic War, Americans looked at Russians as atheists and communists. Russians were viewed as intelligent but liars and devils not to be trusted. When Solzhenitsyn came to America he was looked upon as a hero from the Soviet Union by the American press. The US media later portrayed him in a negative way calling him naïve and ignorant of American society even though Solzhenitsyn was only pointing out the truth known by many conservative Americans. His 1978 speech in this video in America at the Harvard University is not only true about America but prophetic as well. Solzhenitsyn knew communism was infecting society and saw its effect. He also saw "Destructive and irresponsible freedom" in America. Solzhenitsyn says in the USA, "Society appears to have little defense against the abyss of human decadence, such as, for example, misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people, motion pictures full of pornography, crime and horror. It is considered to be part of freedom and theoretically counter-balanced by the young people's right not to look or not to accept. Life organized legalistically has thus shown its inability to defend itself against the corrosion of evil." The US media made sure his words were ignored by many and society has become much worse in the last twenty years in America.
At another time he warns not only Americans but Russians as well, "We should teach future generations so they can avoid the mistakes of those who turn away from God. Otherwise, they will suffer the same fate as those who were murdered." Many conservative Americans understood Solzhenitsyn as they knew America was changing for the worse at that time.

I see Pravda is reverting back to it’s old ways.
G-d help me, but Pravda makes more sense to me than most stuff from the American MSM these daze.
Not too fond of Putins politics but at least he is a man,
Not a wall flower fag like obammy
he is an enigma. I am not sure what his politics are, except the politics of Putin remaining leader of Russia and a world leader.
He talks the talk and walks the walk. He is a REAL MAN....which is something we have not had in the oval office for 4+ years. and I am not putting Bush up on a pedestal as a president...only as a MAN.
That’s because Putin is doing a better job of watching out for our interests.
From the article -
However, when they watch Obama destroying their own country with no hero to save them they become frustrated and look to Putin. Although they hear the same mantra from their TV that Putin is a dictator, Putin is evil, Putin is a murderer; from the internet they see him kneeling at Christ’s Holy Sepulcher which Obama never does when visiting Jerusalem. They see him going to church when they know Obama favors Muslims. They see Putin establishing laws to protect the church and laws against homosexuality. This they admire and this brings them hope. Hope in their crazy world where there is a leader willing to follow Christ. They have no Reagan but they see Putin whom they wish was their president. They write me,
“One of my fantasies is to kidnap Vladimir Putin and make him the leader of the US.” - Jim
“The fact that Putin allows Christianity is an AMAZING thing, while Christians, true ones, are persecuted in anti christ America.” - Robert
“Putin has encouraged the nation of Russia to return to spiritual values, whereas the US. is going in the opposite direction. “ - Glen
“It is a shame that it takes someone from Russia to speak the truth that our media refuses to do. The reason they don’t is because they are communists themselves. “ - Steve
Russia is always an enigma, Churchill was right on that.
There is more truth in Pravda than the la slimes and the ny slimes put together.
Putin just threw over his wife of many years for some acrobat. Give me a break about how devout he is.
Bingo. And I don’t think it is his single con.
Umm, I don’t trust Putin at all.
I think this article misses the mark on American Christians. I certainly have never held any ill feeling towards the Russian Orthodox Church, and have never witnessed such feelings from anyone else. In fact, I greatly admire the Church for what it has done in Russia. It’s survival is a testament to the power of our Lord.
I don’t trust Putin, but I don’t really trust ANY foreign leader. Heck, I sure as hell don’t trust our foreign leader, Barack Hussein Milhaus Obama! I’d say that to distrust leaders is very healthy and the Founders encouraged it.
With regards to Christianity vis-a-vis Russia/America. Yes, Russia is becoming a safe haven for Christians while America is turning into the United Soviet States of Sodom, or the USSS.
When compared to obama, Putin seems to be a rational individual and a leader.
But I still would not trust him, anymore than I would trust obama.
I don’t so much TRUST Putin as RESPECT him.
Whereas I neither trust nor respect Obama. . .
In describing Putin, you state: he is an enigma. I am not sure what his politics are
And my response: No more so than our putative president.
In a time that has past, I would have said that is the dumbest thing I've ever read on FR.
In the present time, that is a very astute and intelligent observation.
I firmly believe our _resident of the White Hut is a dyed in the wool Marxist. Not a stretch really. and one who will ‘Stand with Islam’(in his own words) if it comes to a battle.
Whereas I neither trust nor respect Obama. . .”
My thoughts exactly.
