They’re anti-war because it’s Biden’s war, and they can begin to smell blood in the water. Gas prices, inflation, rate hikes, UKR losses, the situation starts to look bad. And the enemy is Russia, who are white. Nobody buys that shit about them being Asiatics in the US. In Europe, perhaps. But here they are white. “That’s on period.”
What would Trump have done? Would the invasion still happen? I don’t know. But it’s going to take a lot to convince me that the American right has an anti-war principle, rather than sees an opportunity to exploit dissatisfaction with the consequences of war.
They won’t be, and aren’t, anti-war when it comes to China. Because they aren’t principally against imperialism or war. They are against China, in principle. They are for American hegemony, in principle, despite being annoyed that it’s gay. There are people on the left who share those two principles, and maybe there can be a bridge between this group and the right.
