Right-Wing Media Boss Declares Russian President Putin ‘The Leader Of The Free World’ (IMAGE)


If it wasn’t official before, it’s official now. Conservatives LOVE Russia more than they do America.

Last month, conservative radio host Bryan Fischer sided with Russia in support of the country’s anti-gay laws. Not too long afterwards, conservative Pat Buchanan joined Fischer, declaring that America needs to be more like Russia. A mere two weeks later, Bryan Fischer admitted that conservatives want to copy Russia’s public policies. Just this week alone, six conservative groups have signed a statement supporting Russian anti-gay policies. That brings us to Matt Drudge, the conservative media baron who created the Drudge Report.

On Saturday, Drudge made a series of delusional Twitter posts criticizing the Republicans for somehow being just like Democrats.

“It’s now Authoritarian vs. Libertarian. Since Democrats vs. Republicans has been obliterated, no real difference between parties…,” and “Why would anyone vote Republican? Please give reason. Raised taxes; marching us off to war again; approved more NSA snooping. WHO ARE THEY?!”

But that’s not the worst part. His next tweet demonstrated just how anti-America conservatives have become and how much they hate President Obama. In that post, Drudge declared Russian President Vladimir Putin the “leader of the free world.”

Here’s the tweet:

Since the 1940s, the President of the United States has been considered the “leader of the free world.” That includes President Obama. But because conservatives hate President Obama and fantasize about enacting anti-gay legislation, they have fallen in love with Russia even though they considered the former communist nation an enemy of America not too long ago. Curiously, as much as they seem to love Russia now, there isn’t exactly a rush by conservatives flocking there in droves. Perhaps we should encourage conservatives to immigrate to Russia since they hate America so much. It’s the perfect place for them, after all. They get a white Christian male as their leader and all the religion-based policy/tyranny that they’ve always wanted. They can subjugate women, pal around with people who hate America, persecute gay people, freely enact their voter suppression laws without opposition, and they won’t have that pesky Constitution to stand in their way. Unfortunately, conservatives would likely be treated the same way they’re treating immigrants now and they wouldn’t want that now, would they?

But seriously, please move to Russia, conservatives. Because while you’re hanging out with your new best friend ex-KGB officer Vladimir Putin, and enjoying the old Soviet Union-esque laws on homosexuality while you are at it, the rest of us will set about making America the greatest nation in the world once again. And we won’t have you sabotaging us along the way like you currently do now. Clearly, conservatives despise America so much that they prefer Russia. It’s certainly fitting considering how crazy and extreme conservatives have become. But Ronald Reagan must be spinning in his grave.
