Moderate Rebels

Jun 29, 2020

The Minneapolis cop who murdered George Floyd, setting off a protest movement, Derek Chauvin, started his career as a military police officer at the notorious Fort Benning, a base named after a Confederate general that is home to the School of the Americas (now called WHINSEC), where the US Army has trained countless Latin American dictators, death squads, torturers, assassins, and coup-plotters.

Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton speak with anti-war veteran Camilo Mejía, who was trained at Fort Benning, about the deep links between US imperialism, white supremacy, and police violence.
