Pat Buchanan: Anti-LGBT Vladimir Putin is a true conservative hero

Pat Buchanan has a man crush on Vladimir Putin, and he doesn’t care who knows it. The American arch-conservative lauded the Russian president for his crackdown on LGBT people in his own country, saying that Putin was defending “moral clarity” in a world gone mad. “While privacy and freedom of…
