/u/outwrangle before everything went to shit in 2020, /u/emma_lazarus for a while after that, now I’m all queermunist!

Does this impact those Americans at all? Or is this a victimless crime?

Israel will use this as an excuse to reduce the number of trucks coming in to zero.

Stop supporting genocide.

Coming from someone who has been on several weeks of mandatory leave from work because I started self harming in public after listening to yet another fucking horror show coming out of Gaza. I had to be sent home because I was crying and hitting myself.

How do you live with yourself? I’m genuinely curious, because I can barely do it. I’ve had to stop listening to news in the car or I’ll drive into traffic. I’m voting for Aaron Bushnell because they’re far braver than me. I hope Trump has a heart attack.

No. 😎

Do you think Israel’s bombs don’t blow up queer Palestinians?

By doing what I can,

By doing what you can without sacrificing an ounce of your own comfort. You’ve never fought for anything in your life.

Students are out there getting their heads bashed in for protesting genocide. That is what fighting for a better world looks like.

The US committed genocide in Korea actually. If you think China is doing genocide, compare Xinjiang province to Gaza and see the fucking difference. Six times as many children have died in six months of war in Gaza compared to over two years of war in Ukraine, a country with 14 times the population size. Iran has done some executions, never something like this. None of the countries you’ve listed have committed a horror on this scale. This is unparalleled in the modern world.

Stop your whataboutism.

I’m just supporting the lesser of two evils.

These countries aren’t perfect, but I’m not going to let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Isn’t that what you keep telling me to do?

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

You missed my point. The U.S. dropped a total of 635,000 tons of bombs (including 32,557 tons of napalm) on Korea, more than during the entire Pacific War. 2-3 million Koreans died because of US involvement from one sided massacres, starvation, and disease. The only genocide that happened was done by our side. Why are they listing “North Korea” as a country that is guilty of genocide? It’s a fucking joke.

I’m literally mandated to talk to a therapist to keep my job now.

But I don’t think it’s okay to tune out. I’m complicit. I deserve to suffer for that. People who tune out are rejecting the responsibility they have to their victims to hear their stories and learn their names. I can’t look away, I don’t have that right.

Children dying under the rubble don’t get therapists. I’m lucky I can talk to someone, but I don’t deserved to feel better. I deserve to suffer.

Yeah, no shit. Imperialist superexplotation of the rest of the world has allowed the US to enrich itself beyond any empire in the history of the world. That comes at a cost! The US is great if you live in the US, but is it great for the children that mine the US’s cobalt? Is it great for its prison population, which is the largest in the world? Is it great for the massive undocumented labor force that grows the US’s food?

The US “greatness” exists as a great expense for everyone else on Earth. The US can only be great if everyone else suffers.

Lesser evils, not wonderlands. Grow up.

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

The children dying under the rubble don’t get to take a break when they’re tired of the genocide being enabled by my government and my tax money. I’ll take a break when I’m not longer complicit.

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Yes, and you are too. We’re damned together.

queermunist,

Bush killed a million people in Iraq.

Obama brought open slave auctions in Libya.

Trump.

And then Biden, who is overseeing a genocide.

The Great Satan is the worst on Earth, so I’m just siding with the lesser evils against it. Be more practical.

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Far more queer people have been blown up by Israel in the past six months, statistically. We’re about 3% of any given population. Whenever you see mass death, always remember queer people are being killed too.

Aren’t I supposed to support the lesser evil?

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

You don’t get to vote for genocide and then wash your hands of it. Take some responsibility for your actions.

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

Stopping the US empire means siding with its enemies. Pick a side.

Also, here’s an account from an actual gay defector. Doesn’t sound like genocide to me. It doesn’t sound good, of course, but he wasn’t tortured or killed or imprisoned or anything like that. I’m sure you can find some nonsense from a South Korean tabloid or the US State Department, but I do not think they’re doing genocide over there.

queermunist,
@queermunist@lemmy.ml avatar

You know what? I don’t know he isn’t directing this stuff directly. All the crackdowns happened at the same time in all those Democratically controlled cities, almost like it was coordinated and that someone at the top ordered it.

But maybe it’s just a coincidence. 🤷‍♀️

I’m all for flipping the House and retaining the Senate! I’m voting Dem downticket, so if Trump wins it won’t really matter.

But I won’t vote for genocide. Maybe next election Dems will fucking listen when I demand they stop supporting genocide.

I really think the blue-no-matter-who’s would be better off encouraging this strategy. Biden is toxic. Cut him loose.

I didn’t “let” Trump in the first time? I voted and donated and then he stole the election because this is a shithole country where the candidate that loses the popular vote can become President anyway. Half the presidents in my lifetime lost the popular vote! It’s a joke.

And guess what? It’s too late. The fascists already stole the Court because of Mitch McConnell deciding he didn’t want to play by the rules anymore. It’s over. 6-3! It can’t get easier, they can win every Court case they ever want and nothing fucking matters. Biden is “trying” but because he keeps playing by the rules he will always lose. He’ll keep “trying” while I’m marched to my death and that’s not fucking good enough.

If my state passed a law that said it is legal to hunt down and murder trans people, I’d be dead before Biden did jack shit about it.

“If you don’t collaborate with polite fascism, don’t be surprised when the rude fascist is less polite!”

Biden already goes around Congress to give Israel more weapons, so you’re literally talking about something that’s already happening.
