    If Trump does win, I hope to see all of the 'harm reduction' people in the streets so we can build a better alternative together. At the end of the day, blaming people for not voting for a genocide-supporting party is not realistic. You can't expect to actively facilitate a genocide and get away...

    Adjectivenoun yes, most people were like what you're saying, but there were also more enthusiastic people who would say stuff like "he would be the most progressive president ever" or something very close to that, which astounded me at the time. I will also say that some of the 'harm reduction'...

    Friend, joe biden is widely known by the moniker 'genocide joe' right now. That's not some fringe leftist thing, you can probably go to just about any pro-palestinian march and hear that. So maybe go to one of those, I don't know. Anyway, it is pretty well-known that he is facilitating a...

    Your post is basically you wildly misrepresenting me, complaining about some very specific group that bothered you personally, and yelling at someone else for simply asking a question. Not really sure how to address the parts that are directed at me. You claim that I say that it's impossible...

    I don't think it should surprise you that committing a genocide hurts a president's re-election chances. It would seem to me that it is a less-than-bare-minimum ethical responsibility to not vote for someone actively and enthusiastically facilitating a genocide. There are many Arabs and Muslims...

    This common argument in favor of voting for the Democrats is captured really well by this Hillary Clinton tweet. I really like the tweet because it makes it clear what the flaw in the argument is. https://x.com/HillaryClinton/status/1782400479743324603 "Vote for the Democrats! We don't have...

    I think one flaw in the argument about "Palestinians being comparable to WW2 Germans because they elected Hamas" is that Hamas are not Nazis, and in fact are extremely anti-Nazi, which we see by the regular videos they put out of their resistance operations against the IDF. Here is a short...

    I think if you zoom in and look at individual policies, you can find areas where the democrats are 'better' than the republicans for sure. The problem is when you zoom out and recognize that this is just an expression of their strategy for maintaining rule of the rich: make small concessions in...

    I feel like the only good thing about Biden winning in 2020 is that it revealed the hypocrisy of the most enthusiastic sections of the democratic voter base, as well as 'progressive' democratic politicians. in an alternate reality where won and did the *exact* same things as biden, you would...

    Cool Palestinian Posters

    Some of the cool-looking posters I posted before were deleted by a moderator I think? I wasn't given a reason, but I think it was an accident and they just meant to edit my post in some other way while leaving the posters there. Here are the posters again: Artist: Guevara Abed Al Qader...

    to OBY: I don't think any of the posters in this thread with guns feature hamas fighters at all. Just giving you some more information about the posters here. Not sure about the rest of what you're saying; it sounds political, so please take it to the politics thread and I'd be happy to...

    it is not deflecting to say that china's initial covid response was obviously absurdly better than what would have happened if the same thing occurred in the US, or honestly most other countries. it is like if you say lebron james is a bad basketball player after he loses a game, and i say no...

    It's unfortunate to me that people are allowed to say/imply stuff like "the us tried to help afghanistan and the terror it wreaks across the world is actually all benevolent. afghanistan is an embarrassment for not taking advantage of such amazing gracious help, and i dont really have sympathy...
