EtcetEraThread Jeremiah Wright was demonized, vilified, and disowned by Obama for saying "God Damn America!" but was he wrong
Reason User banned (duration pending): Rationalizing antisemitic speech
I missed this part when I first quoted you. While it is antisemitic to say that, there is valid cause to condemn Israel and the Israel lobby. Charges of antisemitism for saying the critique in the wrong tone are weaponized against critics of those oppressive institutions while at the same time, people in the palestinian territories are bombed and kept in an outdoor prison. Antisemitism is real still, there's been shooting at synagogues and growing antisemitic conspiracies that fuel a fascist resurgence but we have to ask who's house is on fire at this current time instead of tone policing. If Argentina got involved in a war, we would not condemn someone as racist for referring to the government of Argentina as Argentinians, we would understand that as metonymy. It is wrong to do that with Jewish people and Israel but people make mistakes in the context of the current human rights travesty that Israel's government is doing to Palestine which makes mispeaking or being offensive in speech a small thing next to bombs and walls, segregated roads, and checkpoints.

EtcetEraThread So Joe Biden was on The Breakfast club: "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." [UP: Apologizes]
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Thread derailment; accumulated infractions
Do you think Biden reflects only the will of the voters, and the DNC played no role in putting their thumb on the scale with aggressive propaganda, endorsements, misinformation, and bullshit that swayed lower information voters? Mind you it's not offensive to call people low information voters when it's objectively true that most people rely on endorsements because politics is time consuming. Low-information voters are acting rationally by giving politics the attention it deserves but the trade-off is that we need to have a fair and impartial media which we don't. The DNC and its media allies tilted the election in its favor. People mistakenly believed that Biden supported medicare-for-all which is definitely not true. It's not just a matter of voters picking Biden, it was tilted in Biden's favor.
