In this week’s episode of Coffee with Comrades, we sit down with Jack and Brett to chat about veterans on the left. We talk about healthcare, horror stories, toxic masculine machismo, winning over allies, and the unique ways late-stage capitalism compels young folks to enter the armed forces. What’s more, Jack and Brett talk about the unfortunate ways certain segments of the left twist legitimate anti-war and anti-imperialist sentiment into hatred for veterans.
