Episode details

Click here for the full episode, including the extended interview with Lev Golinkin on disinformation, weapons manufacturers, and Aaron’s fight with a Nazi denier.

The Nation’s Lev Golinkin has an important message that most people in mainstream news can’t seem to wrap their heads around:

“Russia is committing war crimes. That is true. And not everyone who is fighting Russia is a good guy. That is also true.”

And some of these bad guys are Nazis.

Lev, who sees his home country being terrorized by Russia while also by it’s own neo-Nazi extremists, brings a new perspective to the war that is rarely shared.

And why is his voice stifled? Because of disinformation launderers like Nina Jankowicz, Orwellian head of Biden’s (now-paused) Disinformation Board, who have a pro-war agenda, whitewash Nazism, and smear anyone who disagrees with them.

Read Lev’s articles at the Nation, read his memoir, and watch Useful Idiots. It’s the last stand against the supercalifragicensors.

And become a Substack subscriber to see the full interview where we discuss disinformation, weapons manufacturers, and Aaron’s fight with a Nazi denier.

It’s all this, and more, on this week’s episode of Useful Idiots. Check it out.
