US White Supremacists Met with Azov Battalion & Democrats Fail in Midterm Elections
Anya Parampil reports on a recent criminal complaint filed against the leader of the white supremacist “Rise Above Movement”, which alleges group members traveled to Europe in order to celebrate Hitler’s birthday and meet with likeminded organizations. The FBI specifically claims the Azov Battalion, a regiment of the Ukrainian National Guard known for Nazi sympathies, “participated in training and radicalizing United States-based white supremacy organizations”. RT Producer, Nebojsa Malic, joins Anya to explain how Ukrainian Nazis have been emboldened since the 2014 US-backed coup in the country. Later, Anya digests the results of Tuesday’s midterm elections with Wilmer Leon, host of the Critical Hour on Sputnik Radio, Jacqueline Luqman, Co-Editor-in-Chief of Luqman Nation, and Elijah Manley, Former Broward County Schoolboard Candidate. The panel discusses the failure of the Democratic Party to sufficiently excite its base, Florida’s decision to restore voting rights to felons, and why real change has to come from organizing beyond electoral politics.
