“You saw it under the a whole, ridiculous Russiagate stuff where the idea that Trump was elected by Russia is absurd, but the Liberals suddenly became the best friends with the FBI and everyone else. I mean Mueller became an icon in the liberal establishment. You see it now, this kind of warmongering on the part of liberals over Ukraine without any kind of real understanding of the conflict.” — Chris Hedges

Even I’ve been a target of this war. Because of my outspoken advocacy for LGBTQ+ youth, I have been labeled a “groomer” by a few figures on the far right.

As a result, hundreds of episodes featuring interviews with a wide range of guests, the vast majority of which had nothing to do with Russia, have been removed from public view.
