Podcast: against pseudo-left disinformation on Ukraine III


In Episode 153 of the CounterVortex podcast, Bill Weinberg calls out Putin-apologistĀ Medea Benjamin, whose current book tour has happily met with protest from theĀ Ukraine Socialist Solidarity Campaign. While BenjaminĀ favorably re-tweets the crude spewings of Marjorie Taylor Greene, her Orwellianly-entitled book, War in Ukraine:Ā Making Sense of A Senseless Conflict,Ā Ā is far slicker propaganda, affecting a progressive toneā€”possibly due to the influence of her co-authorĀ Nicolas J.S. Davies. However, the litany of inaccuracy and distortion on nearly every page reveals it as moreĀ pseudo-pacifist war propaganda aimed at justifying Putin’s aggression and putting pressure on Ukraine to capitulate in the paradoxical name of “peace.” Listen on SoundCloud or via Patreon.
