Moderate Rebels episode 21 - Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton discuss the bipartisan US war on immigrants, and the long history of bloody US imperialism in Latin America — with wars, coups, contras, and meddling. We provide historical context to explain why refugees and migrants are fleeing US-fueled violence, political instability, and poverty.
We detail how Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Bush, and Barack Obama created and exacerbated racist institutions like ICE, which gave rise to far-right demagogues like Trump. And we conclude addressing how the US continues these policies supporting the right-wing opposition in Nicaragua today.
