To all of you who support our project
bringing veterans into classrooms – please share this podcast wherever you can. Not enough people are paying attention to the spreading white supremacy in the U.S. military.
Episode 170 of the Refuse Fascism podcast:
Fascists In the U.S. Military
Sam Goldman speaks with Will Carless, national correspondent for USA Today on extremism, about his recent investigation: The military ordered big steps to stop extremism. Two years later, it shows no results.
Will Carless: There was an incredible study released earlier this year that showed that having a military background was the number one indicator of being involved in extremist activity in the United States. I think there are fascists in the military. We know that there are fascists in the military and that we know that there are fascists who’ve been kicked out of the military. The only reason that report is being suppressed as far as I know is because it says something that the administration doesn’t want people to see. Democracy only works if we’re all engaging in it, and it’s very easy not to. This stuff is really, really important. I just hope people take the time to understand it and to dig into it.
