mashbooq,

This is a problem I keep running into when advocating for Palestine: I try to amplify relevant voices only to find them using their platform to spread delusional conspiracy theories against the Jewish people (or, increasingly, against Ukraine). It doesn’t change the horrors being committed against Palestine, but it does make it hard to find someone I’d want to be in power to make changes.

mashbooq,

That’s a ridiculous idea. If I buy a computer with an OS that has an encryption key to protect the hard drive, and later I need that key to remove my data to another system, I have an entirely reasonable expectation that I’m allowed to do so, regardless of how much the computer manufacturer doesn’t want me to.

mashbooq,

you guys make this same brain-dead comment every time someone shows support for Ukraine defending itself from torture, murder, and genocide. what military intelligence and analysis do you have to base this conclusion on? if it’s none, then stfu already

Baltimore celebrates historic 20% drop in homicides even as gun violence remains high (apnews.com)

Long plagued by rampant gun violence, Baltimore recorded less than 300 homicides last year for the first time in nearly a decade, ending a surge that began in 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray, which sparked civil unrest and prompted widespread calls for police reform....

mashbooq,

I wonder what the trend of homicides by police looks like

mashbooq,

Yeah, I read the good message, but then saw Homelander and thought, “makes fascists happy?”

mashbooq,

I know, right? I can’t believe someone is still unironically citing the twitter files, as if they did anything but prove that musk and his acolytes were just creating drama

mashbooq,

Trump derangement syndrome is where a person believes that Trump can do no wrong, is exceptionally strong and intelligent, and has been anointed by god to save the world from liberal vermin. It is rampant on twitter and among musk fanatics.

mashbooq,

There are some common misconceptions about dictionary definitions, including 1) that they’re prescriptive and 2) that they’re complete. In reality, at least for English, dictionaries are descriptive, meaning they attempt to describe how words are commonly used (where “commonly used” is a non-exact metric whose meaning is decided by the group compiling the dictionary); and they’re incomplete in a number of ways. A dictionary provides a starting point for understanding words we don’t know or are unfamiliar with, but there’s a reason people go to school for years to study specific subjects in depth–a depth that’s lacking in the dictionary definition.

mashbooq,

I’ve seen them actively celebrate that they don’t suffer from “Trump derangement syndrome” like liberals (supposedly) do. The longer you watch them, the more pro-fascism you see slip through

mashbooq,

Red fascists: claim to be leftists, behave like Nazis. Leftists: “Fuck off, Nazis.” Red fascists: :surprised pikachu:

mashbooq,

Nothing about that changes the fact that Bolsheviks aren’t leftists. You guys have never seen an argument that you didn’t dodge with a red herring or straw man.

mashbooq,

Red fascism playbook: when there’s nothing bad to accuse leftists of, make up some future offense

mashbooq,

It won’t be that hard. When another instance promotes tankie propaganda, it’s the tankie instance. Dialectics really rots the brain, comrade.

mashbooq,

When we’ve decided on what the leftmost remaining instance is, we’ll know which one to call the tankie instance and say it has been promoting tankie propaganda.

No

I see a lot more whining about tankies than I see actual tankies.

It’s incorrect to assume that your personal experience is a good representation of reality in general

mashbooq,

“Bolsheviks aren’t leftists” is an argument, bud. And what you’re supposed to do, if you want to respond, is address the argument, not something else that you find easier to attack

mashbooq,

Wait, when does help arrive?

mashbooq,

Once again, russian isn’t a race

mashbooq,

Ethnicity is also not race. It’s dumb to try to accuse people of “racism” against russians

mashbooq,

It’s not xenophobia either; russia is the invader and oppressor, with overwhelming popular support domestically. Using derogatory terms for an oppressor that’s raping, torturing, and murdering isn’t any kind of phobia.

mashbooq,

I’ve seen them crow about how they don’t suffer from “Trump derangement syndrome” while posting the same anti-Biden stuff as christofash. It’s wild how much they support fascism and think they’re somehow immune to the label because they’re communists.
