Putin ‘is right’ in claiming the West is destroying itself through woke politics

Russian President Vladimir Putin “is right” when he claims the West is destroying itself through woke politics, according to Herald Sun journalist Caleb Bond.

It comes after the Russian President gave a speech last week where he warned against the cancel culture and identity politics of the West and argued Russia had "been there already” while under communist rule.

“He makes the point about the fact that the fight for equality has sort of turned into absurdity,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“And it’s quite interesting to look at the change; I mean you look at people who went to university in the 60s, 70s, 80s, there was a fight really for free speech, there as a fight for freedom of expression and to some degree, freedom of the individual.”

Mr Bond argued the people going to university now “fundamentally” believe in the same ideas which were pushed by the left in the past, but now their strategy is to silence people they disagree with.

“The road that was paved by left-wingers of the past is now being torn up by left-wingers supposedly in the name of the same fight that their ancestors took.”
