Vladimir Putin: President, Peacemaker, Talk Show Host.
By Marc Champion Sep 19, 2013 4:06 PM ET

Its time to cease with all the Putin bashing. He's proven himself a world class leader as well as a prominent and well respected "leader of the free world" - a title once reserved for American presidents but Obama has seen to it that our reputation has greatly diminished in the eyes of most Americans and of most other nations.

Obama has proven himself no match for the likes of Vladimir Putin. Comparatively speaking Putin is the master and Obama is the bad student sent to 'reform school' for his inane and incorrigible behavior. This is slightly "tongue in cheek" but mostly very serious.

So please read the news article on Putin - you will be en-'lightened' - literally.

EXCERPT:

If you thought Russian President Vladimir Putin might be enjoying himself now that he has blocked the U.S. from carrying out air strikes in Syria, made U.S. President Barack Obama look weak and positioned himself as a global statesman and peacemaker, you could not be more right.

Putin made his annual appearance today at the Valdai Club, a gathering or about 200 academics and research analysts focused on Russia, and he had a ball. He cracked jokes all evening -- mostly poking fun at what he sees as Western hypocrisy, double standards and moral decay.

For example, when the legal troubles of Putin’s old friend, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, came up, he said: “Berlusconi is on trial now because he lives with women, but if he were a homosexual, they wouldn’t lay a finger on him.” That one got a lot of laughs.

More seriously, Putin defended a recent law against promoting homosexuality in Russia, arguing that this does not amount to discrimination or oppression, and noting that some U.S. states still have (disused) laws on the books that criminalize homosexuality. Russia should be allowed to make its own choices about what is right, he said. He also suggested gay marriage was just bad policy. “We are dying out. Europeans are dying out. Same sex marriages do not produce children,” he said, going on to ask whether Europeans really want to rely on immigration to boost their populations.

=============================================================================================

Russia will defend national identity, based on religious values – Putin
ALSO of noteworthy importance - Putin has every right to set the moral standards of his people based on their religion which is also a sign of Russian national identify......so stop complaining because he refuses to behave like politicians in America who promote same sex marriage and the gay agenda - the Russian people are against promoting such culture destroying things as unbridled homosexual debauchery.

EXCERPT:

Valdai, September 20, Interfax - People will lose their human dignity without values enshrined in Christianity and other world religions, without moral standards that have taken millennia to take shape, President Vladimir Putin.

"We believe that it is natural and appropriate to defend those values. Any minority deserves respect for its distinctive identity, but the rights of the majority must not be questioned," Putin said during a meeting of the Valdai discussion club.

He believes, that Russia can't move forward without cultural and national self-determination. Otherwise the country won't be able to respond to external or internal challenges, can't be successful in global competition.

"Events that take place in the world represent one more serious challenge to the Russian identity. There are foreign policy and moral aspects to this. We have been able to see many Euro-Atlantic countries effectively embark on a path of renouncing their roots, including Christian values, which underlie Western civilization," Putin said.

"That involves the negation of moral principles and any traditional identity - national, cultural, religious, or even sexual," he said.

"Policies are pursued that put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category, belief in God and belief in Satan. Excesses of political correctness reach the point where there are serious discussions on the registration of parties that have propaganda of pedophilia as their objective. People in many European countries are ashamed and afraid of speaking about their religion, holidays are abolished or given other names, names that shyly conceal the nature of those holidays, and aggressive attempts are made to force this model on the rest of the world," Putin said.

"This is a direct path to degradation and primitiveness, to deep demographic and moral crises," he said.

How long has this guy been around now? Holding on to power through suspicious means. First President, then Prime Minister, then President. Nothing short of being a dictator really.

I trust him no more than I trust Obama. The way Gays are being treated in Russia is despicable, people should be free to live their lives the way they wish, not have life choices thrust upon them.

The way he talks, he makes it sound like a large percentage of Europeans are Gay. This isn't the reason birth rates of Europeans are low and to suggest otherwise makes him look foolish imo, hardly the great statesmen he's being currently portrayed as.

Not sure gay Russians would agree with that (nor open-minded Russians).

For an iron fist leader that is allergic to shirts seems to sound about right though, your opinion that is.

Are you Russian, may I ask?

IMHO Putin comes across as a deeply insecure person who has to constantly let the public see that he is "macho" who jails those who oppose him, wanting only his voice being heard.
He is ex-KGB. I'm sure he is aware of tactics to control and "influence" people.

From your last quoted article:


That involves the negation of moral principles and any traditional identity - national, cultural, religious, or even sexual," he said.

So in essence he wants to legislate and control national opinion, religion, culture, and sexuality.

Yeah. What a great guy.

It's Putin who doesn't want it, NOT the Russian people.

Strange coming from a man with his roots so deep in communism. The same political idealology that banned religion for decades!!

I have no Gay agenda, I just believe that everybody should be free to make their own choices, as long as it doesn't affect other people directly in a way that harms them.

The so-called 'Gay agenda' imposed on our once great nation by the culture destroying Zionists is harmful in the extreme to all freedom loving Americans in particular, and on our culture in general - on every imaginable level. As in Russia - right thinking and good living Americans (such as we Catholics, and other Christians) want NO part of it. We realize that its inimical to a right way of living and of being. We shall prevail - have no doubts about that !

Glad you mentioned it..........As regards the OP - An exact parallel can be drawn with respect to Putin's handling of the 'Gay issue' as with the 'Muslim Terror threat' in Russia. Putin is out to destroy the threat of terrorism in his nation while Obama promotes terrorism in his by means of the false flag "War On Terror".

Are you for real? Wanna talk communism? Talk Rockefeller.
America have been just as deep in Communism as any other OPENLY stated communist country.

As for the Gay thing - Whatever, I think everybody bashing Russia needs to grow up.
They don't share our Western Ideals - Leave em to it.

It's not like they can be arrested for just being gay, Putins just put a ban on Gay Propaganda.

As a sovereign nation they can do as they please - Do you see Putin telling America how to decide on it's gay marriage? NO.

If Gay Russians don't like the new rules - they are free to leave the country you know.

I'm personally pro gay rights, anti gay propaganda - Am I an insecure Communist too? lmafo.

When was religion ever banned in the U.S? It was in Russia under the Communists!!

There is a World of difference between telling someone how to behave and disagreeing with their opinions. Maybe you should re-read everything I have typed in this thread. I am not in a position to tell any Russian how to lead their life, nor would I want to.

However, I do have an opinion on Equality and that is what I was stating.

Regards.

Are you sure?

Looking at the 2 excerpts you included in the OP, it is all about that. Putin spewing his anti-gay rhetoric, there seems to be more and more of this on ATS recently.

ObservingYou

In the west its sex, sex, sex, allatime sex. That seems to be the whole meaning of competition around here. Meanwhile someone's gotta watch the store.

So who's been watching the US store and piling debt and debauchery on our economic system, as well as corrupting the minds of innocent American children. The fish rots from the head back, so its sex, sex, sex, allatime sex in the hallowed halls of government and "institutions" of learning. We've learned well. Russia is saying nyet to that.

Lets get our heads out of the sack for a moment and compare debt to the central bankers, okay?


Moscow’s ability to learn from its mistakes by paying up its sovereign debt and limiting foreign-denominated borrowings recently prompted Citi Research to call Russia the “potential saviour of Europe”.

Ceptin' westerners don't want to be saved quite yet, they're in the back room diddling.

first of, Russia was socialist not communist. I dont know in what way you could say america is as deep in communism as russia ever was, cant get my head around that.

Also, what the OP is saying, hey im right about values and stuff, everyone should have my own values too. If not they a inmoral, and savages. Thats crazy. Putin is a dictator thats it. Maybe we can agree he has good skills, and is a "great" leader, meaning he knows how to control people and lead a country, which doesnt imply hes leading them towards a righteous end, but thats for another thread altogether.

and sorry for my spelling and grammar, not a native-speaker.

I think you need to go and study some Soviet history beginning with the evils of Communism under Stalin hence Stalinism - why? Because you're dead wrong in trying to pass on such dis-information (aka a lie) to the membership here at ATS. We are too smart for such nonsensical comments. Russia was notorious for having led the world in the strictest interpretation of murderous and evil communism ever devised - known to the world as Marxist/Leninism. There was nothing 'social' about it.

Regarding socialism - The Europeans attempted to transform the wicked communist ideology of Marxist/Leninism into some benign (so they thought) form of socialist ideology, but they failed miserably, and to this very day they suffer greatly trying to deal with the detritus of a doomed 'socialist' political and economic system.

The wicked and vile Obama administration is attempting something similar here in the USA, but they will fail miserably. Unfortunately we will all have to suffer through it for three and a half more years at the hands of an incompetent 'leader'

Do you have any idea how stupid you sound when you say that?

I'm not sure how criticising the Russian government makes someone childish? I can and I will criticize Russia. If you don't like it then try to argue the points, if you can't do that then don't read it.


I'm personally pro gay rights, anti gay propaganda

This is an oxymoron.

As far as Putin goes, he was put into power by a circle oligarchs not longer after the collapse of the Soviet Union, a period when there was extreme amounts of corruption and instability. Putin has certainly provided a large amount of much needed stability, however in Russia:

1. The lines between government and private corporations are often blurred.
2. The government has been centralizing power.
3. The gap between the rich and poor is large.
4. There is a certain lack of the freedom of the press.
5. There isn't enough political debate.




Many of the areas where Putin actually deserves praise (for example bringing stability to Russia) are specific to Russia since they don't affect the USA (for example).


Regarding socialism - The Europeans attempted to transform the wicked communist ideology of Marxist/Leninism into some benign (so they thought) form of socialist ideology, but they failed miserably, and to this very day they suffer greatly trying to deal with the detritus of a doomed 'socialist' political and economic system.


I don't disagree with what you said about the Soviet Union, however attempting to apply that to Western Europe is simply absurd. Actually plenty of European countries are doing rather exceedingly well. Many of them are doing better than your own country.


The REPUBLICANS, in league with the leading CATHOLICS in America, along with the super American patriots in the Tea Party, will set things aright once again come 2014 by re-taking the Senate - then on to total victory in 2016 .......AMEN ..........God Bless America

LOL.

Isn't the republican party and in particular the tea party aiming for less government intrusion? Which is the opposite of what the Russian government is doing?
