White supremacy in the US military – Ep 5.5
Prior to the election of Donald Trump, white supremacy didn’t seem to be an issue of great concern. Despite record increases in people joining white nationalist groups during Barack Obama’s time in office, it still wasn’t something that seemed terribly important to the nation or our government. Then, Trump was elected and groups of people longed pushed to the edges of society now had someone in office that is singing their tune. His support of white supremacy told many in our nation that it was time to push their ideas of hatred and violence.
But white supremacy didn’t go anywhere. It didn’t evaporate with the election of the first black president or any other common metric one might observe. And our military is absolutely no exception. Here’s our take on it.

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
