Useful Idiots: ‘Conservative’ Putin Symps

Just a quick scan of conservatism’s Putin Problem:

Ann Coulter, March 15, 2017:
“LET’S MAKE RUSSIA OUR SISTER COUNTRY!”

The No. 1 enemy of Western civilization today isn’t non-communist Russia. It’s Islam.

Washington Times, March 22, 2017:
“Cooling the anti-Russia hysteria.”

As the former Canadian diplomat Patrick Armstrong points out, as Trump Derangement Syndrome converges with Putin Derangement Syndrome into a single paranoid fantasy, folks may be concluding that if anti-Trumpers hate Russia so much, it can’t be all that bad.

Christian Science Monitor, December 16, 2016:
“Why Putin is suddenly gaining popularity among conservatives.”

“If you look at public opinion in the United States, there were pretty universal negative views of Putin up to this summer,” Darden says. “Then we had the Republican nominee sounding very pro-Putin, and the public shifted shockingly quickly.”

The Atlantic, December 12, 2016:
“Why Trump’s Republican Party Is Embracing Russia.”

Previous GOP leaders like Mitt Romney and John McCain described Moscow as an adversary. Trump describes it as a partner.

The Daily Beast, December 19, 2013:
“Why Pat Buchanan Loves Vladimir Putin.”

“Is Vladimir Putin a paleoconservative?” Buchanan asked, referring to the conservative philosophy that promotes tradition, limited government, and religious and Western identity. “In the culture war for mankind’s future, is he one of us?”

The American Conservative, July 17, 2017:
“If Loving Putin Is ‘Right,’ I Want to Be Wrong.”

With notable exceptions, the further one moves to the Right, the less anti-Putin people sound.

And so on.
