8. Yep. The alt-right sees Putin as "based and red-pilled", to use...

...their moronic lingo. The big new fad in Christian nationalism is converting from radtrad Catholicism (e.g. the idiotic "Groypers", followers of Nick Fuentes) to Russian Orthodoxy. The writer and "intellectual" Rod Dreher (a real piece of work) very publicly converted to Orthodoxy a few years ago. It was the usual thing with him like many other far-right converts: as he became more alt-right-adjacent, Catholicism--even of the radtrad variety--wasn't "based" enough (e.g. not homophobic, misogynist, and generally bigoted enough). ROCOR (Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia) is the latest "radtrad-ism" with these people. They're really loathsome. Lauren Witzke, another real piece of work, is also a public convert to Orthodoxy; she even has an Orthodox Cross on her social media accounts.
