Why are they so based, /leftypol/? They spend almost all their time debunking regime change propaganda targeted at Venezuela, Syria, Nicaragua, etc. I also like that they call themselves communists without being cringy LARPers.


They feel guilty for abetting regime change all over the globe 5 years ago.



I know they used to support regime change in Syria to some extent before they became hardcore anti-imperialists, but what else?



>hardcore anti-imperialists

This boils down to supporting anything thats against US hegemony like fascism in Russia.



what an original, refreshing take that definitely answers the question I was asking.



I'm always on the lookout for people who are such diehard contrarians they can't see that the enemy of their enemy isn't always their friend. They're not to be trusted.



As long as American hegemony exists socialism cannot. You might as well not be a socialist if you aren't hardcore anti-imperialist as well.



>before they became hardcore anti-imperialists

they're not though. also, blumenthal's dad:


these people are rank opportunists and backstabbers who can't be trusted.

Max said he no longer talks with his dad Sidney, not since after the 2016 election when the DNC started blaming Hillary's loss to Russia. He said on one of Katie Halper's recent podcasts he is embarrassed to have been naive enough back then to think he could influence Hillary to "be more progressive" and "less hawkish" due to his personal connections with Bill and Hillary.




Nowadays he is:

1. anti-zionist





2. supportive of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange




3. shitting on the Clintons any chance he gets







You don't have to trust him, but he should be applauded for disowning his own father and the Clintons due to his moral convictions.

More horseshit from another one of /leftypol/'s zionist disinfo agents, see video



Who are they?



all he does is steal marxist analysis a year or two after smearing it, and diluting it down to radlibism.





They're journalists and hosts of the podcast "Moderate Rebels". Max also runs a website called "the grayzone" I believe. As has been alluded to in this thread already, they used to be sort of pro-establishment liberals, but for as long as I've followed their work they have focused on criticizing american foreign policy, Israel, and debunking regime change narratives around Syria, Venezuela, Nicaragua, etc. They were recently in Venezuela and before that Blumenthal was in Nicaragua.

They rarely talk about their own political ideology or "tendency" (which is a good thing and a sign they aren't mentally ill twitter leftists) but I've listened to their podcast for a while and it's pretty clear that they're commies imo. Just off the top of my head I've heard them speak positively about Marxism, Cuba, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Leila Khaled and the Sandinistas. And there's an episode where they bash pro-war trotskyists which turned into some kind of historical overview and critique of western trotskyism from a Leninist/ML standpoint. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE-jNckM-zw

I think they do great work. Of course, internet socialists on /leftypol/ will find some reason or another to accuse them of being CIA shills or opportunists or whatever the fuck, but that doesn't bother me much.




also they've always been skeptics of russia gate

> why can't we get along and civilly disrespect each other





What is so special about that mans bottom lip and chin that he wants to show it off to everyone?
