Pat Buchanan is still alive?

Wat?
 
2014-04-04 09:46:28 AM  
A former KGB operative whose job was to turn university students in Dresden so that they would spy in the United States.

This is where I resist the urge to just throw the bullshiat flag at that assessment. Buchanan is a farking wingnut, just as much as Lefty wingnuts. Political conservatism doesn't equal religion any more than Liberals' "ownership" of tolerance. Putin is a thug, we won't go to a shooting war with Russia, and the pearl-clutching should stop. If Ukrain or Crimea want to fire shots, go for it.

Sometimes, they raped and pillaged so much that they didn't even bother continuing on to the Holy Land.

Here we see the Shirtless Chessmaster with the great Reagan.  You can bet if Obozo was there Reagan would make fun of his mom jeans and Putin would give that nerd a huge wedgie.  Then Reagan and Putin would high-five and go ride horses together.

At least once,

I think they also got their asses kicked out a couple of times.

I swear the smartest move in that region was when someone gave the keys to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to a Muslim family.  The rest has just been one giant clusterfark of various powers trying to control the major (ancient) trade routes between Europe and Asia using whatever means necessary.

I don't know, why don't you ask him?  Oh, that's right, you can't because he doesn't exist.  That's OK.  I'm sure you are more than willing to speak for him.

Putin is entering a claim that Moscow is the Godly City of today and command post of the counter-reformation against the new paganism. Putin is plugging into some of the modern world's most powerful currents. Not only in his defiance of what much of the world sees as America's arrogant drive for global hegemony. Not only in his tribal defense of lost Russians left behind when the USSR disintegrated. He is also tapping into the worldwide revulsion of and resistance to the sewage of a hedonistic secular and social revolution coming out of the West.

Wow.  Pat's got bats in his belfry.

Yep, and all that work Reagan did to bring down the Soviet Union is being destroyed by his own party.

James!: A former KGB operative whose job was to turn university students in Dresden so that they would spy in the United States.


Right, but back then he was working with godless communists, now he's working with the endorsement of the Russian Orthodox church. The problem was never Russian authoritarians invading and controlling most of Eastern Europe (hell, we love us some autocrat allies), for these people it's the fact that they didn't believe in God AND capitalism (which they see as inherently linked) and spreading those heretical ideas through the world.

Putin comes carrying a Bible, has the heads of the major industries as trusted advisors in support of him, and they have been assured he has a good soul. Obama is critical of big business and they are not confident he even is a Christian. Which do you think Buchanan would find more trustworthy?

Buchanan does have a history of spewing some really vitriolic religious rhetoric, though. But what's really farking hypocritical of him is how he trumpets isolationism when it's convenient to his political beliefs, but then he turns around and spits nonsense like "The annexation of Crimea is purely defensive" and "Russia is on God's side against the West's Gamorrah." Then again, he wrote a book claiming it was Churchill's fault that Germany started the Second World War, so I can only conclude Pat's never met an iron fist he didn't like.

Pat's lunacy tends to ebb and flow.  A number of years ago when the Neo-Con movement was ratcheting up he was on NPR and presented himself as candid and well spoken.

I didn't agree with him on everything but he did state that the radicalization of the right wouldn't serve the party well in the long run and that democracy depended on both groups not being as extremist as they were heading.

...and now this.

Does he have a book coming out?

You should tell that to the Republican party.  From their official platform:

"[We] Reaffirm that our rights come from God..."
"We support the public display of the Ten Commandments as a reflection of our history and of our country's Judeo-Christian heritage, and we affirm the right of students to engage in prayer at public school events in public schools and to have equal access to public schools and other public facilities to accommodate religious freedom in the public square. We assert every citizen's right to apply religious values to public policy and the right of faith-based organizations to participate fully in public programs without renouncing their beliefs, removing religious symbols, or submitting to government-imposed hiring practices."
"We condemn decisions by activist judges to deny children the opportunity to say the Pledge of Allegiance in its entirety, including "Under God," in public schools and encourage States to promote the pledge."
"May God continue to shed his grace on the United States of America."

The term "God-given" appears in the document 10 times.
Aside from the term "God given", the word "God" appears 3 times.

In contrast, the Democratic National Platform uses the word "God" only once and only mentions religion insofar as having religious freedom be part of equal treatment for all citizens.

Of course I'm sure you'll be ready to tell us all about how the Republicans don't represent true conservative values and they only manage to get all those conservative people voting for them because reasons.

He's just playing to exploit natural philosophical divisions in the west. Smart move. Never know, maybe some of the easily manipulated people can be stirred to violence.

This basically verifies that the driving force behind the RWA worldview is not ideology or philosophy. It is all about submitting to the proper dominant authority and, in turn, forcing others to submit to you as a conduit of that power.

"Conservatives" in this country have become disgusting self-parodies. It's a sad state of affairs for both conservatives and liberals.
 
2014-04-04 12:17:21 PM  
But wait, I thought the Christian Right didn't approve of a dude sucking another guy's dick, especially in public? When did they change, and why didn't I get the memo?

Well duh, the right is only really concerned with the naked worship of power and authority, and the abject submission thereof. Whether that power and authority is cash, political power, or the voodoo priest rigmarole of their pseudo-christian cult.

Of course they worship Putin, he is the white dictator they really wish they could have. He probably reads the art of manliness dot com too. Just like them.
 
2014-04-04 12:22:48 PM  
Yes, Pat. Putin is a Christian crusader. I'm sure when the atheists put you against the wall, he'll Jan Sobieski his way to your rescue, because he loves Jesus.
