ReasonUser Banned (1 month): dismissing concerns around bigotry, misquoting civil rights leaders to deflect from issues of race
I’m sorry you’re just wrong.
You’re not going to shame a poor white guy into caring about feminism or racism. You have to win these people over through material concerns.
The rich have a material interest in being racist/divisive/bigoted since the system they reinforce through politics is racist, classist, etc. because capitalism needs exploitation and division to succeed.
Are you saying you disagree with Malcolm X?

This is apartheid South Africa shit.
I don’t know how you can justify the US’ support of the Israeli state at this point and how you can’t justify the Palestinian people’s movement at this point.
One is bombing the shit out of whole villages with US manufactured and armed F-16s, and the other one is shooting a mortar into a neighborhood. One is encouraging it’s more radical fascist elements to take over the homes of Palestinians, the other is encouraging its people to protest a wall and getting massacred by craven snipers.
The threadmark is whatever. Like sure let’s not use the most visceral historical comparison of the current moment; particularly because the historical comparison murdered millions in just a few years and this one is just the slow planned out death of a group of people throughout the decades.
However, the Israelí state is using the exact same tactics against Palestinians that were used by a certain fascist state in the 30’s and 40’s with the exception of the use of death camps; although one could argue that Gaza is just one large death camp.

I hate to use a Laura Ingraham phrase, but stick to rewriting video game press releases as news stories. You’re not too wise when it comes to politics. Biden HATES Warren, and the feeling is mutual.
Warren and her supporters are going to vote and embrace whoever the nominee is. She and the PersistPAC are fighting for her small opportunity at the nomination right now. Those three Super Tuesday States are where she is polling her best at the moment, and if she does well enough there, she could be able to make the argument to the fickle moderate voter to wrap their support around her.
Now, do I think that’s going to happen? No, but I think as long as she’s able to stay in a respectable polling position and has enough money, she should be able to make that argument to voters.
