In the minds of the American LEFT and their media, there is no bigger bogeyman than Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Ever since the year 2000, Putin has bounced back and forth between the positions of president and prime minister. The current prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, is a member of Putin’s United Russia party, and is a known Putin loyalist.

American liberals wail about the injustices that come with such single-party or oligarchic rule. However, few of them recognize that Putin is one of the most popular leaders in the world and is often credited with saving Russian democracy after the dismal years of President Boris Yeltsin.
Yes, Putin is an autocrat. That being said, Putin led Russia to victory in the Second Chechen War (via BBC), spearheaded Russia’s economic recovery after years of destitution, and continues to be one of the more active world leaders in the fight against Islamic terrorism.
Putin’s support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has not only helped the Alawite dictator to hold onto power, but thanks to Russian air support, Assad’s forces are very close to winning the war.
While there are very legitimate reasons for not supporting Assad, American foreign policymakers made the bad decision of arming “moderate” rebels even though most are just ISIS-light.
Thankfully, President Trump has officially ended the CIA’s train-and-equip campaign in Syria, via Washington Post.  Many liberals in America are already barking that this move was done to “appease Russia.”
The harsh truth that liberals do not want to admit is that decades of American policy have failed. The globalist liberalism of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama has been worse for America and worse for the world than Putin’s authoritarianism.
Face it: if America’s liberals hate it, then it has to be good, or at least worthy of defending.
