Useful Idiots: A brief Guide to the conspiratard tradition of anti-Americanism and support for dictators

In honor of all the love for Assad, Putin, Hitler, and Gaddafi in the conspiracy community as of late I figured now would be a good time to compile a brief guide to their dabbles in anti-Americanism and support for oppressive dictators. We get a bizarre two way relationship where the nutjobs happily accept the exposure and the rogue states are happy to wheel out these useful idiots on their fully owned and controlled propaganda stations so that they can tell their people how evil America (and Jews) are. The big question of course being: why do the propaganda centers of oppressive states bring on libertarians and conspiracists? Is it so they can talk about freedom for Iranians and russians and Koreans? No. It's almost exclusively to whine about America (and Jews). Both sides are looking to blame America/The West for .. everything. Enter: false flags, "blowback" foreign policy, and banker conspiracies. While we all can agree America and The West in general have a lot of issues, the difference is most people ("sheeple, if you will), don't run off like little anklebiters to legitimize other monsters in the process. They don't mislead nations of people who may or may not have the same free access to information we do.
While I start with some isolated cases of this on reddit this trend is common all the way up to their thought leaders. It's quite depressing how incomplete this list is but I tried to get some of the better stuff.
