Not long ago, the military forces of Vladimir Putin, aka GOP Pootie, attacked a Greenpeace ship on the high seas, imprisoned its crew, and is holding them to face trumped up charges in a Russian court. One would think that all Americans would be furious over such violation of human rights, but not so. Putin loves guns and hates gays, so Republicans love their GOP Pootie so much, that they are even helping him promote his oppression of LGBT people. Here’s some Republican praise for him.
The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday by reading a series of quotes from a mystery public figure, asking his listeners to guess “what country do you think this guy is the president of?”
The big surprise is that the quotes – encompassing such topics as European rejection of “Christian values that underlie Western civilization,” the pursuit of policies that “put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category” and “excesses of political correctness” – are from Russian president Vladimir Putin, who has escalated his crackdown on LGBT people in recent months.
“Who is it?” Fischer asked. “Which president 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? Those, ladies and gentlemen, are quotes from Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia.”
“The contrast between that president and our president could not possibly be more striking,” Fischer continued. “Just a bizarre day. 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.”… [emphasis added]

Rachel Maddow covered Republican attempts to influence Russian law, contrary to the interests of US citizens.
Russia clearly demonstrated that Russia has a Republican Regime. They are not even sufficiently competent to keep the "eternal flame" burning.
Note that by addressing the Duma a private citizen lobbied a foreign government against US interests. That is a violation of the Logan Act, and therefore a chargeable act of Sedition against the United States.
These Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christians are not Christians. Authentic Christians, who do not see Christianity as a vehicle to promote Republican hatred, should not be painted with the same brush, and I am not doing so. In the same way, not all Republicans are hate mongers, but almost all hate mongers are Republicans, because the Party put out the welcome mat for them.
Needless to say, prominent Republican legislators are actively supporting this crime.
