Putin fires broadside against western liberalism

Though it’s attractive in general, liberalism has overreached on multiple issues, such as immigration, and is now ’eating itself,’ Vladimir Putin said, just days after he’d suggested that the ideology has failed Western societies.

Sad when Putin has more sense than half of our own citizens here in the US..

They were never values. It was weaponized morality. The same tactic that tore his country apart and lead to his parent's death. The overly compassionate are easy to manipulate.

Putin nailed it. Soon to be banned from all digital platforms.

Ah, an actual Sociopathic dictator telling the West they’re doing it wrong.

I think it's a shocking state of affairs when a man who lamented the fall of the Soviet Union has to point out that the West is abandoning traditional Western Liberal values and moving towards collectivistic hellholes.

Oddly as a long term "conservative" I find listening to saner liberal commentators that on most issues it's degrees of difference rather than world's apart. I think that the label liberal has been taken over by an extreme fringe and many who consider themselves liberal ate not paying enough attention to realise how far that stuff diverges from liberal.

I hate how the term liberal has been utterly destroyed. Beeing liberal used to be about individuality, presumption of inocence and balance of power.

We're at the stage where a genuine dictator makes 'Liberal democracy' look authoritarian.

It's sad to think when you get point you'd rather live in Russia because it's more free then the West...

I have to agree largely because of the old quote, if fascism ever comes to America it will come in the form of liberalism and based on everything I have seen these past few years it looks true more and more.

Nah, I wouldn't look for morality lessons from Russia. He's not a conservative (not in the Western sense anyway), but a clever populist. In the light of Europe committing voluntary suicide, it's easy to look smart.

Lots of American conservatives in the comment section that don't understand that in the rest of the world "liberalism" does not mean "left" or "Democrat". Republican voters, conservative Americans, you are liberals too in this case.

While some of Russia's actions and Putin's decision are certainly questionable and should be rightly criticised, his observations on Trump's election and changing attitudes of the electorate aren't wrong. He makes a lot of sense.

You do know Russia is a post-communist society recovering from the deep mental and social damage done by socialism. Total murder score for communism socialism in Russia since late 1800's over 80 million. Chernobyl was the final warning. Bad ideas that are disconnected from reality do not get better with age, scale or persistence. You cannot run a society on a newspaper publishers philosophy that revolves around three ideas: Rage Bait, Mob and Money. Fantasy and fiction are not reality. Who best to tell you that than an ex KGB officer who has seen behind the curtain of Marxism.

Western Liberalism is being destroyed due to their own neglegence. Putin is just making a point. Look at how much they're being beaten all over the Western world by the based right.

Putin knows exactly what we mean by "liberal" in the United States.“The liberal idea presupposes that nothing needs to be done. The migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants must be protected,” -Putin
