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.

CLA Radio 06/02/17: Duane Allman (repeat)

Re-upping my Duane Allman show tonight (originally broadcast 11/20/15) to mark the passing of brother Gregg on 5/27/17. (We’ll return to new programming starting next week.) Here’s the original show post:

CLAR156-DuaneAllman-Banner

To celebrate the third anniversary of ConservativeLA Radio (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse […]), I’ll be doing an extended three-hour edition of featuring Duane Allman.

DuaneAllmanWithWilsonPickett

The show will include just under an hour-and-a-half of documentary material from Song of the South: Duane Allman and the Rise of the Allman Brothers Band. (The documentary runs a little over two hours, but I couldn’t bring myself to edit the material down below an hour-and-a-half.) Excerpts from the documentary are referred to, unimaginatively, as “Documentary excerpt” in the set list below.

DuaneInStudio

Hard to believe that Duane was only 24 when he died. Such a waste, but so much great music left behind–even though he was just beginning to hit his stride.

But enough of that maudlin crap, this show is to celebrate his birthday!

DuaneAndBerry

And if you’re wondering why there are non-Allman Brothers songs on the show, other than the obvious Derek & The Dominos, it’s because Duane was quite the session player for a spell. But his heart was always with what eventually became the Allman Brothers Band (referred to as “ABB” in the set list).

DuaneABB

Pretty amazing when a 24-year-old kid (not to take away from the contributions of the other band members) is the primary impetus for new genre of music: Southern Rock.

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat!

The Spotify playlist is here. (Alas, the documentary clips are not on the Spotify set list, since they are on my local drive.) Doubly alas, my show in its entirety is intended for subscribers to the Hughniverse–see link at the top of the page.

Originally broadcast 01/15/16. Here’s the original show post:

CLAR162-SinAndConsequence-Banner

Oh, this will be grand fun!

Courtesy of Tribble guest host Matthew Berg (someone remarkably conversant with music recorded a half-century before he was born, as he proves every week during the Duane FM request show on Saturday nights), the next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse […]) will concern itself with very bad things, and what happens (or should) when one does very bad things.

Matthew has put together a truly magnificent set list. Attendance is mandatory. It will be on the final.

Matthew also put together some great show notes, which I highly recommend you check out here.

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat.
