Who is attracted to Putin? It's the lefties, Pal... remember when Hillary paid for a fake dossier? And Trump said she did? And all the "Russian Collusion" sh-t that was 100% BS? Remember when the left spied on Trump and he said they did... and the media said he was a liar... and it's been proven he was right? Remember that?
Remember when Trump told Europe NOT to become dependent on Russian gas/oil and the media laughed at him? Remember that? Who's laughing now??
The best compliment you can get from someone who disagrees with you is not, my bad, you were right... it's Well, sh-t... you made me think!
Sometimes arguments help us recognize complexity where we thought there was simplicity. The purpose of talking and arguing about sh-t is not to come to a fkn consensus. It's to promote critical thinking... with LOGIC, not feelings.
not being a wiseazz here, Shawn, but in this case I think many are guilty of what you are saying...relying on old simplistic conventional thinking and not considering what is happening in never-before-considered ways...critical thought, not conventional.
I asked why the far right nuts loved Putin, cuz I was also raised that he's a Commie and Commies are far left.
But in recent years he's attracted the attention of well right of center power brokers. I'm not even talking about the flowery compliments Trump paid him. Look into this new wave...Le Pen is just one in the news, in our own country there has been surprising support for Putin's evil attack on Ukraine not from the left, but from right wing news and commentators.
I was obviously provoking Ray, cuz that's how we do, but he did stumble into the attraction as the Fascist part of far right politics has been growing, especially in Europe...it's been their calling card forever and Putin is promoting it.
Politics makes strange bedfellows.
Ron, I love ya, but being left of center is light years removed from loving Mother Russia!
