Moderate Rebels

Sep 6, 2018

Moderate Rebels episode 24: Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton are joined by anti-war veteran Mike Prysner to discuss the warmongering legacy of John McCain and the bipartisan attempt to portray the neoconservative senator as a Resistance™ figure against Donald Trump.

We talk about the borderline genocidal US war in Vietnam, the GI resistance movement, and the class divide within the US military between officers and enlisted soldiers.

We also address McCain's imperial funeral, which featured war criminals like Henry Kissinger, and how neoliberal Democrats are rehabilitating right-wing hawks like McCain and George Bush.
