When the right-wing love fest with Putin becomes passe how long until the likes of Tucker Carlson, Hannity, Trump, and their ilk come with the line that they were always against Putin and his czarist intentions?

Even Putin’s supporters in the West will realize that their embrace of him will be their undoing. Pictures will emerge of Russian atrocities. Putin will be condemned as a war criminal. Fox News and Trump will no longer be able to glibly “both sides” the conflict between Russia and Ukraine or minimize the manifest evil of the man America’s 45th president sought to embrace.

 

In the end, all these factors will contribute to Putin’s decline, will add to his vulnerability to domestic challenges, will isolate him, and will, in the end, destroy him. We should not minimize the toll he will take as he, already an aging man seeking to recreate a lost dream of his youth, tries to bend the world to his perverse vision. He will not go down easy and he will take many with him.

 

But if history is any guide, his over-reach and his miscalculations, his weaknesses as a strategist and the flaws in his character, will undo him. And, if there is justice in the world, if the people of the U.S. and Europe are paying attention, they will also serve to undo those Putin acolytes abroad who supported this monster and ignored the profound danger to us all that he embodies.

It's pretty likely that Fox, and their viewers, will just move onto the next culture war issue. People will forget that Fox essentially supported Putin because Democrats (and the threat of the trans-CRT-BLM agenda) is so pervasive that Republican voters will not care whatsoever. 

 

Whatever you do, you need to not give so much credit to the average American voter.
