11/1 How US Security Violates Human Rights In Africa w/ Milton Allimadi

November 1, 2017

On today’s show, Michael speaks with Milton Allimadi, publisher of Black Star News, about just what the hell the United States is doing in Africa. (Spoiler alert: nothing too good!) From helping France fight Al Qaeda in Mali (which just happens to have a lot of uranium and oil) to supporting  problematic neoliberal president Yoweri Museveni in Uganda, the U.S. has made it clear it’s motivated more by economic interests than anything having to do with human rights in its foreign policy towards the countries of Africa.

On the fun half: Trump might not be getting the full briefings anymore, Gorka thinks “political correctness kills,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders thinks we should honor our confederate history, George W. Bush is a hypocrite who supports Trump-lite candidate Ed Gillespie in Virginia, the Duck Dynasty guy wants to have sex with Beyonce, Bill O’Reilly gets rejected by Sinclair Media, a caller espouses evo-psych theories of conservatism, the MR crew muses on what they’ve un-learned, and an extremely high person calls in.
