Hey, ‘Right Wingers For Putin’: What Do You Say About This…

06 May 2014 @ 14:03

Yeah, I’m talking to those of you on our side out there who believe that The United States should take Putin’s side because ‘he’s a good Christian Man who will join us in fighting Jihad’ and ‘he’s only doing what the majority of the people in the Ukraine want’.

From Forbes, Paul Roderick Gregory writing, we learn [tip of the fedora to Memeorandum]:

The website of the “President of Russia’s Council on Civil Society and Human Rights” posted a blog that was quickly taken down as if it were toxic radioactive waste. According to the Council’s report about the March referendum to annex Crimea, the turnout was a maximum 30%. And of these, only half voted for annexation – meaning only 15 percent of Crimean citizens voted for annexation.

The fate of Crimea, therefore, was decided by the 15 percent of Crimeans, who voted in favor of unification with Russia (under the watchful eye of Kalashnikov-toting soldiers).

The official Crimean election results, as reported widely in the Western press, showed a 97 percent vote in favor of annexation with a turnout of 83 percent. No international observers were allowed. This pro-Russia election pressure would have raised the already weak vote in favor of annexation.

To make sure no one misses this:

Official Kremlin results: 97% for annexation, turnout 83 percent, and percent of Crimeans voting in favor 82%.

President’s Human Rights Council results: 50% for annexation, turnout 30%, percent of Crimeans voting in favor 15%.

Well?…explain that one away…or, you could wake-up and smell the Fascism.

    Not surprised at all. Mr. Putin started off in the KGB, and is the sort who can only be trusted only when it suits him. In 2004, he was wiling to play ball because he understood strength. Now, he sees weakness.

    Can’t stand Putin. Can’t stand Obama. Shame we can’t lock ’em both up in a sealed cage match, then blast the cage into permanent orbit.

    Good point, glad you picked up on this. Pat Buchanan is among those who advance the delusion that Putin is a conservative Christian “evangelicals” can support. With the Buchanan link and his own take-down of Buchanan’s preposterous ignorance, here is Professor Marek Chodakiewicz:

    I melded Dr. Chodakiewicz’ essay into a general discussion treating the location of authority:

      I’ve lost a couple of Friends In The Ether over this issue, but, you know Rev., I don’t care. We’re in a life and death fight and there’s very little time left.
