In the first 24 hours alone, more than 150 million people clicked on the historic two-hour interview between the conservative US star journalist Tucker Carlson and Russia's President Vladimir Putin on the "X" platform.
The worldwide interest has caused downright panic in the left-green editorial offices of the German mainstream media - the effort with which the political-media complex in this country is trying to talk Germans out of the interview as a supposed "propaganda show" is remarkable.
In the interview, Putin repeatedly emphasizes his deep roots in the Russian Orthodox faith. Is this the deeper reason why the Kremlin leader is so hated by the decadent, woke West? Why "green" climate and gender ideologues are spearheading the warmongers in the Ukraine conflict? Why the globalist clique around George Soros and the "deep state" around the senile still-US President Joe Biden in Washington fear Russian President Vladimir Putin like the proverbial devil fears holy water?
The head of the Kremlin repeatedly accuses Western democracies (are they still Western democracies in many cases?) of an alarming loss of values. So-called "Western values" - Putin sees this above all as a decline in customs and traditional values. The Russian president counters the woke gender ideology and left-wing green diversity decadence under the guise of "queer tolerance" with a steadfast conservative model of family values firmly rooted in the Christian faith.
Putin sees himself as the upholder of Christian tradition
The powerful man in the Kremlin is deeply convinced that the destruction of family values ultimately leads to the decline of societies. The accusation spread by Western propaganda that Putin is "homophobic" is inaccurate and misleading. It is true that Putin wants a law to prohibit positive talk about homosexuality in the presence of minors. But for one simple reason: because, in Putin's view, homosexuality is not the natural way of life geared towards procreation, as proclaimed in the Old Testament in the Book of Moses: "Be fruitful and multiply!"
When paedophilia becomes the norm
Ten years ago, in his speech to the nation, Putin emphasized: "We know that there are more and more people in the world who support our position on the protection of traditional values." Russia has a "historical responsibility" to defend the millennia-old foundations of human coexistence in the world.
"Of course, this is a conservative position," Putin emphasized. But this is the only way to prevent chaos. "In many countries today, the norms of morality and ethics are being turned upside down, national traditions and the differences between nations and cultures are being blurred," the Russian president lamented, criticizing: "Paedophilia is being declared a norm."
Putin also used the speech to pick apart so-called "Western values" - particularly with regard to LGBTQ ideology. For example, clergy are being forced to bless same-sex marriages and the "holy scriptures" of the church are increasingly being called into question.
"Parent 1, parent 2 - not with me!"
Putin wants the traditional definition of marriage as between a man and a woman to be included in the Russian constitution. Under his leadership, terms such as "parent number 1" and "parent number 2" will not exist. Vladimir Putin explained this during a discussion on family values in Russia.
Russia's president said: "As for 'parent number 1' and 'parent number 2', I have already said it publicly and I repeat it: as long as I am president, we will not have 'parent number 1' and 'number 2' - but 'dad' and 'mom'."
For Vladimir Putin, the matter is clear: the West has betrayed its true values in the gender craze and under pressure from climate hysterics. What comes along today under the guise of "Western values" in the guise of opposition-suppressing democracy is the agenda of a powerful minority. A left-green elite determines what people should think. They put their stamp of opinion on the majority - all of this, and especially in Germany, under the ideological banner of the rainbow flag!
