Yes, if not for being a long time poster, I would assume he was posting from the disinformation department of the Kremlin. He's been pimping Putin and selling absurd Russkie propaganda all over various threads for awhile now.
I agree. There are a few of these FReepers that are long term members but who you’d think were agents of Putin; they’re so blind to the recklessness of his nationalism and his aggression, so willing to praise his crimes as works of genius, that you wonder why they think they’re conservative. Putin is a mere thug, running a crony state, with a veneer of Christianity to give himself some sheen of decency.
