Episode 99: The Inflated Threat of China: Fuel for the U.S. War Economy

On this episode, join us to hear from Dr. Catherine Wilkerson about how the U.S.'s scapegoating of China for the global pandemic is both a deflection of U.S. accountability to contain the virus and a propaganda strategy for manufacturing public consent for war with China. In the second half of the show, CODEPINK team member RJ Thomsen discusses the House Foreign Affairs Committee's markup for the anti-China EAGLE Act, which uses the inflated threat of China as intellectual justification for further military spending.
