Republicans Have Found Their Dream Leader and His Name Is Vladimir Putin

Republican archetype Putin

Every movement, especially political movements, seeks a leader that champions its cause as a prototype that all members of the movement can point to as the ideal on which they are based and is regarded as the model or perfect first form. Because Republicans, as a political party, are fractured into different groups with relatively disparate goals, they have had a high degree of difficulty finding an archetype to represent both theocrats seeking to install the Christian bible as law of the land and neo-cons driven to dominate the world through military conquest. One might mistakenly assume that Republicans yearn for another Ronald Reagan as their archetype, but his record of cowardice in the face of terrorism, belief in the separation of church and state, and taxing and spending like a madman, his liberal record disqualifies any reiteration of him as the prototypical Republican champion. In fact, over the past twenty years, although Republicans cite Reagan as their idealized leader, they have never found a candidate in his image because even their man-god Reagan was not a prototypical conservative.

Now it is becoming clear that Republicans are on the verge of finally, at long last, finding an archetype of everything disparate 21st Century conservatives stand for who is part George W. Bush, part evangelical freak Mike Huckabee, and part neo-con Dick Cheney rejecting the rule of law. There is some division among Republicans who cannot quite decide if they want to fight Vladimir Putin or fornicate with the Russian, but one thing is clear; conservatives think he is a “real leader” and lust for a Republican president like Putin.

Republicans, conservative pundits, and evangelical fanatics have lined up behind their prototypical conservative Putin, and contrary to what some may think, it is not solely because they hate President Obama they have spent no small amount of time comparing to the Russian president. This past week Fox News strategic analyst Ralph Peters was effusive in praising Russia he asserted “has a real leader, while our President is incapable and unwilling to lead.” Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani could barely contain his enthusiasm for Putin and said “Putin decides what he wants to do and does it in half a day. He makes a decision and executes it quickly and everybody reacts. That’s what you call a real leader.”

Another conservative pundit praised Putin because “he likes to hang out with his shirt off and tells the West if you mess with me I’ll kill you all.” Even half-term, half-wit Sarah Palin compared the conservative’s hero with President Obama and said,  ”people look at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil, and our President wears mom jeans and equivocates.” Another Fox analyst said, “In Putin, you’ve got a big strong guy, muscular and shirtless on a horse who wrestles tigers, while the President wears mom jeans.” It is unclear why conservatives are obsessed with mom jeans, whatever they are, but it is likely to compare President Obama’s diplomacy first foreign policy with a big shirtless leader who subscribes to the George W. Bush foreign policy of pre-emptively invading sovereign nations; the conservative’s idea of a “real leader.”

However, as much as Republicans are enamored with Putin’s rapid decision to invade Ukraine without going to the United Nations or a reason other than he wanted to, it is the religious right that would install Putin as America’s theocratic dictator tomorrow if they could convince Americans to amend the Constitution to allow a Christian foreigner to rule America. The religious right regards Putin as their archetypical leader because he made it Russian policy to do what Christian fanatics yearn for in America; crackdown on gays and make Christianity the state religion. In fact, Christians anointed Putin the “defender of the Christian civilization” or as Christian zealot Bryan Fischer asserted, Putin is “the lion of Christianity, the defender of Christian values, the president that’s calling his nation back to embracing its identity as a nation founded on Christian values. To ever think we would get to the day that Russia would be more advanced spiritually than the United States. I mean, it’s just staggering to see what is happening to this country.”

Fischer, like nearly all evangelical Christians heaped praise on Putin for signing a ban on gay propaganda and gushed that “this is public policy that we’ve been advocating and here is a nation in the world that is actually putting it into practice.” It was reported here yesterday that the World Congress of Families (WFC) summit meeting (Pro-Life Olympics) is still being held in Moscow despite Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. As noted in the article, the communications director of the WCF “justified, exonerated, and extolled Putin’s behavior because Putin is behaving a lot like George W Bush” by pre-emptively invading a sovereign nation. Although Bush never claimed he was defending Christian civilization by hunting down gays, banning abortion advertising, and likely ban abortion, there is little doubt he would have if he had the authority. As an aside, abortion is the top birth control method in Russia because contraception is prohibitively expensive; something Christians yearn for in America as evidence by their rabid opposition to contraception coverage in healthcare prescription plans.

Americans should not be deluded that if they had the opportunity, Republicans would install a Putin-like character as president in a heartbeat. Their praise of Putin’s decisive leadership in invading a sovereign nation like George W. Bush, and staunch support for a state-mandated Christian religion authorizing the hunting down and brutalizing of gays signals their intent for America if they were left unchecked. The argument that conservatives and Republicans love Putin because he is the polar opposite of President Obama has some merit but misses the bigger point entirely. It is true that Republicans hate that President Obama defends and supports the Constitution’s guarantee of equal rights for all Americans, and they cannot tolerate the President’s “diplomacy first” foreign policy, but what they want in a president is a Christian dictator who, like Putin and George W. Bush, invades sovereign nations on a whim, and forces Christianity down the throats of every American under threat of death. It is true that Republicans have found their archetype to rule over America, but since Vladimir Putin cannot run for the presidency, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Paul Ryan, and Rick Santorum all have presidential aspirations and a prototype in Russian president Putin to model themselves when the 2016 Republican primaries begin.

  1. Simply put and right on the money, as far as I’m concerned. I find it despicable, sleazy and scary. I lived in Argentina during the “Dirty War”. What the Right did to that beautiful country was tragic, but when they did their thing they said, “Viva La Patria”. “Long live our Country”. Country first my ass.

  2. A poll out this morning says 48% of Americans support what the president has done in the Ukraine to 43% who dont.

    Just another defeat for the wretched creatures called the gop

  3. The 43% would not approve of President Obama if he cured cancer. These polls mean nothing as long as PBO is POTUS.

  4. How is Obama a weak President when he:

    Authorized the Navy SEALS to kill pirates and Bin Laden.

    Rolled the dice and bombed Libya.

    Used drone attacks via air to kill terrorist, especially an American citizen.

    Does the Right has an attention span of a two year old?

  5. The GOP called Putin the KGB! But since Putin has begun his (takeover of the world) policy, now he’s their hero! The GOP have become a scary bunch. The amount of harm to US citizens has been awful. They don’t want a minimum wage! They don’t want equal pay for women! They don’t want civil rights or voting rights! They don’t want gay rights! They don’t want healthcare rights! They don’t care about children starving! They don’t care about VETS or the elderly! They don’t want regulations on oil or chemical or financial industries! They don’t want unions that protect our labor forces! They don’t want a woman to control her body. They don’t want advances in science and research. They don’t believe in climate change! They only want the wealthy to be educated. They want everyone but Black and Hispanics to carry guns, including the mentally ill! They broadcast Christianity but don’t believe in it’s core values. They believe in racism but don’t call them racists. The GOP is GRE…

  6. Putin is, at least, intelligent. I think he’d quickly tire of his running mate’s continual exercise of fee screech.

  7. Note their perception of Putin as a “big, strong, rugged guy who wrestles tigers”. He’s a shrimp who should wear a brassiere, and I have a giant tomcat who, if he were a fighter and not a lover, could probably settle his hash.

  8. In my opinion any guy who has to ride around on a horse shirtless and stage the killing of a drugged tiger and wrestle bears must have a really small penis.

  9. The sight of Putin riding a hoprse with no shirt on gives me the creeps, he is a very small man, probably why the joint press briefing with Obama was sitting down. I feel like he is gay and scared to come out of the closet.

  10. America’s dominionists have been seeking church-state alliances which would make it possible for their movement to Christianize (with “their” brand of Mosaic and Old Testament Law, but in the name of Jesus) the seven major cultural influences: arts and entertainment, business, education, family, government/military, media, and religion – worldwide. Putin wants to use the Russian Orthodox church to “Christianize” Russia (with a hard-line Christianity). The Rockford, Ill.-based World Congress of Families, an umbrella organization of the US Christian right’s heavy hitters – has been “helping” the Russian Orthodox church’s family values movement since 2010. In September 2014, at the Kremlin, Putin will preside over the 8th International WCF. WCF activists from all over the world will attend the Conference. No doubt tunnel-vision hard dominionists will come to believe that God is using Putin (the enemy of their enemies) to carry out God’s will, (like John Hagee said of Hitler…

  11. Hold the bus!! I thought republicans hated Russia with a passion since the early 1950’s!! you know, that commie, socialist, thingy deal! and because their Savior ronnie reagan single handly brought down the USSR! LMFAO, and didn’t madam savior palin a few days ago hint we NUKE putin and the commies??? now the GOPers wanna play spin the bottle with him?!! the GOP is straight schizoid!!

  12. This is the most extreme, bias article I have ever read that it is not even funny. Both the Republican and Democratic party have segregated this country to the point that it will take YEARS to repair. Many people forget that we are on the same team, and get caught up way too much in the political world, and lose focus on the real task at hand. God forbid that this country falls, but it has a higher chance of falling to our own ignorance and rivalry than at the hand of foreigners.

  13. The word is biased.

    However perhaps you have not reads the comments form republicans stating Putin is a far better leader?

  14. I guess the Republicans want another” Mission Accomplished” president in the White House. A guy who talks tough but does not have a clue…I would rather have President Obama who seems to think before he acts.

  15. A ruthless dictator with embarrassing man boobs. What a catch he’d be for Sarah Palin! The fact that he thinks he looks good shirtless is amusing. Assholes don’t know they’re assholes. He’s a coward too. Killed a tiger & posed with it like a tough guy. Didn’t take a photo, of the tiger still alive being sedated before Putin would go near it, even with a gun. I call that chicken shit, not tough. Hillary is right about the Nazi comparison. Too bad Adolph Hitler isn’t alive. Those Tea Party hags like Palin would swoon over him. To Putin XXOOO Hugs & Kisses love the “hawks” in the Republican Party itching for another bullshit war like Iraq.

  16. In a nutshell witness the literal insanity of those on the right screaming hysterically that Mr. Obama is a dictator, all the while they simultaneously long for a dictator and swoon over a foreign strong man.

  17. The word is “from”

    He’s is right though. Regardless of what the GOP comments are, the country is going to fall from the inside outward because of politics. There’ no hope for change because there will always be another place to invade.

  18. Very interesting how the hypocritical leadership of the USA talks about bombing countries into submission to spread their version of democracy (even though you don’t even have it at home) yet you jump up and down like clowns when Crimea overwhelmingly votes to join Russia. Obama is a Zionist puppet and freemason that has long ago sold out the USA to the ridiculous beat of Homosexuality, global warming facade and multiculturalism whereby Americans can’t even proudly express their culture for fear of bring racist. Make no doubt about you do not have freedom of speech or democracy in your own country, so stop trying to preach it to Russia which has got much more balls than you will ever have.

  19. Thanks for the truly hilarious speel. We know you will love it in mother russia. Please write when you get there.

    BTW, its great to see you have all your cliches memorized. See you in denile!

  20. Travel abroad and experience the hatred that many nations nurture for the USA leadership. You are a puppet Zionist controlled government and no cliches here. Just look at your jewish Zionist (as opposed to true Judaism) dominated government which openly despises the concept of American freedom. You see unlike yourself who lives in an artificial bubble where the USA hypocritically parades themselves as the centre of the world and champions of democracy, most of the Europeans (as opposed to our pathetic leaders) are more intelligent and aware of the true political atmosphere concerning world events. The American quality of life is pathetic, you have a shocking health service, your economy is on tatters and many people line the streets looking for handouts or rummaging in bins for food. Meanwhile your highly immoral government preaches US style democracy while openly supporting Islamic terrorist groups in Syria that were previously threatening the USA. Talk about Hypocrisy.

  21. Sorry, your conspiracy doesnt carry water. As for the Syria thing, you need to do a little research. Get off the cliches and do some reading on your own
