Is Putin Still Awesome?

As the cold war of words with Russia turns into a hot financial war, readers have asked if this blog will continue its pro-Putin stance. Good question. Some argue that Russia's strongman is the reincarnation of St. Paul, which is a bold call and I'd hesitate to go that far. 

However, the former KGB Colonel did lock up Pussy Riot. A big plus. He also stands against the USEURO Axis of Gayness. Another big plus, and he's the only major world leader that dares to publicly support Christianity. Some say that's cynical on Putin's part and I don't care if it is. He supports the church and that's good, in my book, regardless of motive. 

But Putin isn't just against the limo-lib, atheist gay agenda, he's also against big taxation. Under his leadership, Russia has a flat tax of 13%; another plus. And let's be honest, he's not a feminized, metrosexual, pink panderer to the progleft's attempt to deconstruct humanity and remake it in the image of Aleister Crowley, Margaret Sanger, or some other Satan. No, Russia's leader shoots, rides, fishes, hunts and loves getting out in the field. He loves his country too.

Here's what he had to say about the current attacks on his Motherland: 

"Maybe our bear should sit quietly, not chasing any piglets around, but just eating honey and berries. Maybe they should just leave him alone? They will not. They are trying to put it on a chain. And as soon as they do it they will tear his teeth and claws out."

I'd say Putin has a point, but would he mistake Obama for a waiter at a dinner party? Who knows. Is he the New Constantine? Perhaps. Is he still awesome? Not if you're Pussy Riot or a libleft pansexualist, obviously. If you're a pro-Christian, small taxation, trad values sportsman, probably yes, he is still awesome. And is it wise for the West and our Mohammedan allies, like Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to fight against Russia?

Memories are short and getting shorter by the day, but let's not forget what attacking Russia did to the Bonapartists and Hitlerites.

No favors at all.

I would mistake Obama for a waiter or a buss boy, so I can give Putin a mulligan on that one.

Putin is not progressive, therefore I can't but admire him. He loves God, country, and borscht. The Russians love him and blame US for screwing with their economy.

LSP said...

Putin isn't afraid to call out the Religion of Peace. Another plus.

I'd be very afraid of accepting a coffee, or a plate of food from Barack. Trust him with my car keys? I don't think so.

LL said...

You wouldn't want to trust Barack with your son's virtue or Putin with your daughter's.

LSP said...

That's a very good point.

jenny said...

Is any politician "awesome"? careful there.
I second LL's second point. And Putin has a lot of worse shortcomings than that.

LSP said...

But Jenny, he locked up P Riot.

LL said...

From a Russian perspective, Putin is precisely what they want in a leader. They've never minded despots in charge. The move to annex portions of Ukraine where there are pro-Russian majorities is seen in Russia as good.

To them Ukraine is a broken toy. And, well, it is. I don't know what the fix is. Neither, apparently do the Ukrainians.

Russians are racists and for the most part, are heterosexual-friendly. Putin gave the Pussy Riot people several chances to go and be queer at home. They refused, disrupting the order that Russian people preferred - and were locked up. In Russia that passes for justice. In the US, the president encourages lawlessness and looting.

The Russians think that we're nuts.

LSP said...

They're not very impressed by the magic of O, either.

I'm surprised that Washington National Cathedral hasn't made P Riot honorary Canons.

Mad Padre said...

Sorry Parson, I think you're on the wrong side of history on young Vlad. I just pray that when history proves you wrong, it's not too expensive fa lesson or us all to pay for.

LL said...

There may be a solution here. If Justin makes the "artists" in Pussy Riot into bishops, the Russians may exile them to the UK - or to the US, where they could serve as a musical singing group going from gay conclave to gay conclave.

Once Justin declares their music to be "Liturgical", they could perform at solstice celebrations where Wicca is exalted, etc.

Think of them as ambassadors for the Church of England and it somehow makes sense to release them from a Russian prison so that they can spread their "message" throughout the West. Putin would go for it.

LSP said...

You may be right, Padre, and I like your prayer intention.

But I also like Putin for supporting the church.

Let's hope that part isn't on the wrong side of thing.

Hope all's well in Canada!

LSP said...

I have this feeling, LL, that you understand "undermine from within."

Will Putin launch Pussy Riot at the West (think Lenin sent from Germany to Russia) and will Justsin take the bait?

And will P Riot become CofE bishops?

Stay tuned.
