11/27/18 Max Blumenthal on U.S.-Funded Neo-Nazism

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Max Blumenthal talks about the Azov Battalion, a U.S.-backed Neo-Nazi group in Ukraine, and their efforts to train and educate American sympathizers. Once funded by the Obama administration, the group now wields some real power in their region and hopes to spread their ideology in ours. For all their talk about the rise of white supremacy, Blumenthal explains, the U.S. media refuses to cover this scandal because it undermines Obama’s policies. Scott mentions that much of the strife in Eastern Europe today is ultimately America’s fault, because we pushed expansion of NATO into Russia’s backyard. No one should be surprised when tensions with Russia are at their highest since the cold war—but this is yet another thing we’re not allowed to talk about. Even Israel, of all countries, doesn’t seem to care that much about Neo-Nazism, because if anything, it could cause a threatened diaspora to support the Jewish State even more strongly.
