>>”Thuggery” in high office is not justified because it is directed against sodomites.<<
What are you talking about right now?
Putin is only 'mocking' US with his pretend outlawing of sodomy. Putin knows from whence our blessings come. I think there is plenty of 'thuggery' going on in many 'high' places, but it most certainly is not directed at the sodomites.
“Putin came to the defense of the church with the Pussy Riot incident”
Putin also was the only world leader who stated his country wid not stand idly by while Christians were being slaughtered in Syria by U.S.-supported muslim terrorists.
LOL!!! Yeah, that’s it, dude. I’m a liberal plant because I don’t admire a former KGB colonel who presides over a country where journalists disappear, political dissent is censored, and has a level of crony capitalism that makes Obama look like an Eagle Scout by comparison. In Reagan’s time, pal, guys like that were the ENEMY.
Criminy, Putin’s no more an American-style conservative than Pol Pot was. People like you remind me of George C. Scott’s character in Dr. Strangelove - “Boy, I sure wish *we* had one them Doomsday devices!”
Brilliant Wardaddy! You have outed me as a cowardly anti-American leftist hanging out on leftists' sites 24 hours a day, while I steadfastly campaign for all the Commie Marxist Pigs I can stand.
And if you believe any of that, you're not quite the sharp cookie I had assumed you were.
Before this goes any further Wardaddy, I asked for my earlier post to be removed and checking again, it has been.
Earlier I responded to DesertRhino's post explaining my error in believing what turns out to have been someone's nefarious edit of Mr. Lind's former title "Director of Cultural Conservativism" into "Director of Cultural Marxism."
My response to DesertRhino is copied below and includes the link to Amazon selling the book Mr. Lind co-authored with Senator Gary Hart.
I have also responded to Jim Robinson's comments regarding my error.
Meanwhile here is a screenshot of the Wikipedia article on William S. Lind.
I have highlighted the instances where apparently someone edited in Marxist or Marxism in place of Conservatives or Conservatism.

Fortunately it is possible for anyone to research as well as to look at the history of Wikipedia edits and I have been doing both for the past hour.
The Wikipedia article is still there. However from my research and in looking at the Wikipedia edit history, it appears that someone changed one word changing William Lind's title of "Director of Cultural Conservativism" into "Director of Cultural Marxism."
However the information that Lind was against the Iraq War and that he never served in the military is true.
Also true: William S. Lind co-authored a book with Senator Gary Hart in 1986. It is listed on Amazon:

I will ask for my earlier post to be removed.

But for learning about conservatives, its absolutely worthless. The wiki editors allow amazing slanders, distortions, and misleading entries,,,while sanitizing the pages of leftists.
IOW, you read Wikipedia the same way you read The New York Times - for factual, nonpolitical information. But always with your spidey senses activated in case there are political implications which might not be obvious at first blush.
Its a simple formula: anyone who claims, not merely to try to be objective but actually to be objective, is not remotely objective about themselves. And will spew propaganda - perhaps while actually believing it.The natural disposition is always to believe. It is acquired wisdom and experience only that teach incredulity, and they very seldom teach it enough. The wisest and most cautious of us all frequently gives credit to stories which he himself is afterwards both ashamed and astonished that he could possibly think of believing.
The man whom we believe is necessarily, in the things concerning which we believe him, our leader and director, and we look up to him with a certain degree of esteem and respect. But as from admiring other people we come to wish to be admired ourselves; so from being led and directed by other people we learn to wish to become ourselves leaders and directors . . .
The desire of being believed, the desire of persuading, of leading and directing other people, seems to be one of the strongest of all our natural desires. - Adam Smith, Theory of Moral Sentiments

Who said Putin = Jefferson?
He is not Pol Pot either.
Who are these journalists “murdered” by Russian government? Are there any clues linking their deaths to a regime or just claims by their fellow liberal moonbats?
What political dissent exactly censored? They have dozens of liberal and communists medias bashing Putin and his regime 24/7.
Are there any American MSMs critical to Obamao left?
Very good comment. While you’re not likely to find many supporters on this thread, what you described is the essence of conservatism.
Ped State. Go Sanduskies!
Half right. Libya had been tamed, thanks in no small measure to our work in Iraq. Iraq, otoh, was a destabilizing threat to the region and our ally Israel. Taking Hussein out was the right thing to do.
Good words, Nathan. I agree.

Hussein was a pain in a butt, sure. But is it any better right now there?
I’d like to see them re establish Constantinople
I won’t consider Russia truly conservative until they again criminalize homosexual sodomy.
Same with us.
>>>Russia’s law protecting minors from gay propaganda involves no jail sentence whatsoever and the equivalent of a 75 dollar fine.<<<
It seems like homosexuals takes a broken windows rule very serious.
None has to stay intact as soon as they have started to smash it.
Why would Russia want America (as it is now) as an ally?
“Homophobia”??? Really??? What does that have to do with the Constitution?
