Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola, hosts of Unauthorized Disclosure, reflect on the response to those with ties to the Global South, who remembered Queen Elizabeth for her history as a part of a royal family that inflicted massive amounts of pain and suffering through their colonialism throughout the past century.
In particular, they highlight Amazon founder Jeff Bezos calling attention to a tweet from Nigerian university professor at Carnegie Mellon named Uju Anya. Nigeria was a British colony until 1960, and Anya was censored by Twitter because Bezos did not like her message and tone.
The show's hosts also discuss the United Kingdom and other EU countries that have inflicted hardship on their populations by creating an energy crisis in response to the proxy war with Russia in Ukraine that was entirely avoidable.
And in the first part of the episode, they share some of their opinions about why it feels so controversial to talk about the seeds of fascism in the United States.
