Pat Buchanan Once Again Hails Vladimir Putin, Regrets Conchita Wurst Victory
Vladimir Putin’s number one cheerleader Pat Buchanan is out with a new column juxtaposing the Russian president’s right-wing push with the victory of Conchita Wurst in the Eurovision Song Contest and praising Putin for rallying the “millions of traditionalists” who are rejecting European liberalism.
Even as more countries seek European Union membership and ex-Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to renege on closer ties with the EU sparked massive protests, Buchanan insists that the EU is in the midst of “disintegration and decay.”
Out of its ashes comes Putin, Buchanan writes, who as “the anti-Obama” is “moving to occupy the cultural-moral vacuum left by America” with his rejection of “Hollywood values” like “multiculturalism, LGBT rights and abortion on demand.”
That victory in the recent Eurovision contest of Conchita, the bearded transvestite drag queen who performed in a gown, though celebrated by much of the European press, sent a message to millions of traditionalists that this is no longer their culture.
Another aspect of the rising populist right, as the New York Times notes, is a grudging admiration for Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
Why? Putin not only publicly rejects the moral relativism of the West, under his guidance Russian social legislation is being consciously rooted in traditional Christian concepts of right and wrong.
Putin is the anti-Obama, moving to occupy the cultural-moral vacuum left by America. As we celebrate multiculturalism, LGBT rights and abortion on demand, Putin repudiates Hollywood values.
