Putin supporters love Ridrigo Duterte: coincidence or consistency in politics?

People can have inconsistencies in politics. But it’s curious that so many supporters of Russia in Syria, claiming Russia is bombing for humanitarian reasons, get such a kick out of Filipino president Rodrigo Duterte for calling Obama “the son of a whore” & for telling the European Union to “go fuck themselves” while flipping them the bird.

They eat up his vulgarities, call him a straight-shooter, a man who won’t tolerate BS or hypocrisy, a man who gets right to the point. The fact that he uses death squads & vigilantes to execute poor people who are suspected drug users doesn’t seem to dampen their enthusiasms.

There might not really be an inconsistency between bombing for democracy & death squads. That’s my conjecture.
