Posted on 04/07/2014 12:29:49 PM PDT by EveningStar
Self proclaimed paleo-conservative Pat Buchanan loves him an anti-gay, bear-back ridin, judo flippin, ex-KGB operative named Vlad. Its just about the most absurd thing imaginable, and its all under the title Which Side is God on Now? ...
Everybody in the news has been explaining how this Crimean conflict is not comparable to the last Crimean war. But is seems like Putin is dusting off some of the old propaganda, and Buchanan is buying it...

A lot of conservatives see Putin as the anti-Obama.
He is everything we wish an American President would be: manly, unapologetic, assertive, defiant and decisive. “No leading from behind.”
Not absurd when you stop to think about it. Obama is a metrosexified wimp.
Youre going to tick off the Paleo Pat lovers on the forum. Just sayin.
Oh, yes . . . it is absurd. Humorous that FReepers have a mancrush on Putin, but if Buchanan does I guess it’s “ok.”
The majority in the Ukraine that are rioting are pro Russian.
Who are we to go against this. Zer0 doesn’t like it because it goes against his Marxist lifestyle.
Hey if Putin humiliating our misleadership to the point they either man up or the American people man up and vote them out of office is what it takes, well, so be it. YAY Putin!
Either way America wins.
Mr. Putin is reasserting Russia’s Christian identity which makes the EU queers and neocon bobble heads queasy.
Always avoid aimless alliteration absent ale.
Old Saxon wisdom.
Putin has co-opted the Russian church and to their shame they have gone right along with it.
So the guy who went out of his way to defend Nazis likes Putin. Big surprise.
I loved when Pat was screaming to buy American while driving a Mercedes.
“A lot of conservatives see Putin as the anti-Obama.He is everything we wish an American President would be: manly, unapologetic, assertive, defiant and decisive.”
Anybody who believes this to be true lacks a basic understanding of conservatism and historical perspective.
Conservatives despise tyrants.
Who can fault Putin for reestablishing some links with his old KGB vodka-swilling buddies in the Russian Orthodox Church?
When everyone in the Corporate Media agrees on a narrative then you know the opposite is true.
Mr. Putin is reasserting Russias Christian identity which makes the EU queers and neocon bobble heads queasy.
I’m not entirely sold on Putin’s sincerity there. I think he is one of those secular rulers who has the sense to fear provoking the Almighty, however. I’m thinking of men like Cyrus, Pilate, Gamaliel and Constantine. He may be just a cynic, viewing religion as a useful tool of state.
What I do know is that the secular west is at an historical nadir. It is perverse and oppressive, and its influence should be thwarted.
Psalm 2 says it all. It also provides for the ‘kings of the earth’ to back up, adopt some existential humility, and spare their nations judgement.
“Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.”
We *might* be seeing that in post-Soviet Russia. We are beset daily with the rampant opposite of that right here, right now.
Time will tell who got it right.
At least Putin is straight forward about being no friend of liberty.
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Pat literally thinks that the survival of G-d depends on the survival of Northwestern Europeans. If Northwestern Europeans become extinct, then G-d will disappear. I have no doubt that Pat's "gxd" would disappear, but the real G-d? Not so much.
No wonder chrstianity's going down the drain. There's a different J*sus for everybody, and they're all enemies of each other.
