"In Russia, we live like Russians.
Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.
If they prefer Sharia Law and live the life of Muslims, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.
Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'.
We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation.
The muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia.The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive way of Sharia Law and Muslims.
When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims minorities
are not Russians."

“How Screwed-Up Is It That I HATE Our President While Increasingly Nodding in Agreement with Putin?”
Perhaps it’s because he’s speaking an obvious (to us) truth that our president ignores. Perhaps it’s because Putin’s words indicate he sees the same reality we see. Perhaps Obama’s words indicate he sees a false world of pretty rainbows, tweeting bluebirds, unicorns and free universal health care, free phones, free, free, free stuff.
One reflects a sustainable, safer reality and the other a fantasy that will come to no good end when it runs out of other people’s money.
Wow. Russia is looking more and more like a place to move to......in some ways - of course not all.
Putin is a real man, whereas Obumbo is...God only knows what.
...in love with them.
“Russia is looking more and more like a place to move to.”
I dunno about Russia, but the post Communist countries of central Europe are quite nice. I fully enjoyed my 6+ years in Slovakia.
Very complex language to learn if you decide to go there.
Well join the club. Putin is anti-muslim. Obama is a muslim. Putin is a man. Obama is a fruitcake. Putin is smart. Obama is dumb. Should I go on?
WWPD: What Would Putin Do?
Putin is the best ruler Russia has ever had since Tsar Peter; Bork Obunga is the worst leader any advanced state has ever had since Nero. All you’re seeing here is a heavy dose of reality.
It’s good to hate what Obama is trying to do to the country and what he stands for.
But it is good to check your view of Putin by remembering he’s a master propagandist who doesn’t see the world the way you do and isn’t looking for Americans to win. He’s still a cold warrior at heart, and while you respect his steely, manipulative intelligence, it is good to remember that he wants what Obama wants—not what’s good for our country.
It is part of his talent to make you see him as more on your side than on Obama’s side.
People from those countries are also often disgusted with how easily Americans are duped by the totalitarianism of socialism. They also have a keen, unromanticized take on Putin and his government.
“What Would Putin Do?”
Putin would slap the silly little man-child across the room.
I believe most Americans would agree that if any immigrant comes to this country, they should do so legally , Learn to speak English and study to become a citizen. There is no reason for me dialing a phone and being asked if I speak English.
Any others we do not need.
We Christians are to blame (imo) for not doing what we were supposed to do ... that being going out two by two ... thus America is being chastened for our neglect .. EZ 3:18
I can understand disliking Obama but this hero-worship of Putin is baffling. To paraphrase another Freeper, the enemy of my enemy can still be my enemy. And make no doubt about it, Putin is no friend of the U.S.
Cuz yer a putz....like me.
Putin on the Ritz with Osetria Caviar and Crystal Rose Champagne.
Putin likes Russia and wants to make it better.
Obama hated the USA and wants to “fundamentally transform it” in his image of what it should be.
This is about more than Obama. Bush would not have made such a speech as Putin’s either. It’s really about how the west let itself be conquered by political correctness.
> People from those countries are also often disgusted with how easily Americans are duped by the totalitarianism of socialism. They also have a keen, unromanticized take on Putin and his government.
Disgusted because they lived and experienced it 24/7 and know its inherent evils. If their view of the American people is that of the liberal / progressive side they must think we’re incredibly stupid and naive and I don’t blame them.
I think it’s not so much a “liking” Putin but admiring a leader that loves his country and wants it to succeed and attain it’s lost luster. He’s more pragmatic than our president and accepts the economic realities in front of him.
Unlike Barry who hates the country and wants to bring it down. Unlike Choomer-in chief Barry that still believes in the pot of gold at the end of the communist rainbow which is what they discussed in the faculty lounge at Columbia.
You know where Putin stands whereas, Barry stands on the golf course surrounded by sycophants and treats his military like a Tonka toy set like Lil Kim in NoKo.
What they have in common is their hatred of their domestic political opposition.
Obama hates America, which is why he is “fundamentally transforming” it.
He IS the enemy, which is why we find him siding with America’s enemies and destroying long held alliances.
I agree with you. I hate that SOB more than you know. Though maybe you like Putin more because he’s everything our Faux president is not.Though I never would have expected a dictator to be running things in the United States so soon.
A real dichotomy.
Obama sees his role as advancing a one world government where the voice, power and prestige of all the western nations is greatly reduced. He’d probably consider at top position of the UN as a greater honor and more prestigious than POTUS. He doesn’t believe in his oath of office and is therefore treasonous and below contempt.
Putin may be megalomanic, ruthless, and power hungry (aren’t they all?) and motivated to patriotism primarily to advance his personal power, but at least does want to see his country strong, influential, and a force to respected, and if it comes to it, downright feared.
USA has momentum towards atheist socialism. Exactly what the soviets were trying to do.
Russia has momentum towards a Christianized free market. Exactly what the USA was trying to accomplish.
Momentum can be reversed but it would take something drastic since so many of our citizens are programmed into socialism.
I agree Putin is a leader. I can’t find any information on the attack of the Russian Embassy did it really happen yesterday?
Yes, it did happen.
I spent a couple of days in Prague. While we were there, we saw a huge, massive, rally, protesting Fidel Castro. Gotta love the Czechs.
Obama is not my President. He may be yours, but he is not mine.
I don’t know. I think Putin like the US more than Obama does.
“I spent a couple of days in Prague.”
On occasion, I would take the train up to Prague. It is a nice city. My Philippine wife is chomping at the bit for me to take us to Europe. I saw that she had been on a Czech government web site concerning an EU visa.
I'm a free man.
I have no use for Obamas or Putins.
It is pretty screwed up, but not nearly as screwed up as the voters who voted for Obama, twice.
I’m liking this guy more and more and I don’t like that a bit.
Never in my mind did I ever expect this to happen.
Putin may not be benevolent, but he’s not insane.
