The replies to this. Libs really do think Biden is at the top of his game and not at all in decline. :skull:

JT showed his cute face on a cool new video.

At least they’re finally openly admitting that Vote Blue No Matter Who doesn’t actually mean “No Matter Who.”

 

I mean, we already knew that with Buffalo and India Walton, but at least the pretense is no longer being lied about.

This monologue was beautiful in every way, and yet I feel nothing but despair for the future because of it, UGH. :jonny:

What it's like every time someone on here starts screaming about how forgiving student debt or universal healthcare is bad and then I see their "location" information.

In case there was ever any doubt how much contempt the Democratic Party has for us.

dddd this reminded me of our fights years ago in the Atheist and Agnostic thread @Bloodflowers.

 

I do find it funny that Ayaan has basically vanished (I genuinely do not see her mentioned much, let alone Islamophobia used as a go-to tool for the right now outside of when defending Israel) when right-wing politics is now as huge as ever online when for years from 2015-2018 it felt like she was one of the most platformed anti-Islam voices.

 

I obviously can recognize if certain places have illiberal policies (me personally not valuing liberalism and thus not seeing something illiberal as inherently bad; for example I can see how expropriation of property is illiberal, but I support it explicitly because it's illiberal), so obviously I can respect if someone finds surveillance policies in Xinjiang (though they're like that in almost all of China) to be illiberal. I just don't think it's note-worthy of action.

 

But what has always tripped me up, and why Xinjiang has been something that has caught my eye since the first waves of propaganda started in 2019, is that nearly uniformly... so many of the vocal critics of China's relationship with Islam... were people just 2-3 years ago I literally remember often encountering as like.... advocating for "the Judeo-Christian West to stomp out Islam as a vile barbaric ideology and rid it from society". :deadbanana4:

 

So to see someone articulate this contradiction that's been at the back of my mind was interesting. :celestial5:

Well, I mean... the Right also likes to leverage Islam's largely anti-LGBT stance as something that makes it barbaric... while also calling gays and trans people groomers and pedophiles. :priceless:

Ksksksksksk don't remind me of the cringy past sis :deadbanana2:

 

Ayaan because lame right-wing spokesperson with awful Republican talking points, but I do respect her for originally fighting against right-wing extremism in Islam and her first book is really powerful but she truly lost all credibility when she started bootlicking Christian right-wing propaganda and tarnish her legacy with Republican sellout money as if they respect her atheism, feminism and what she fought for, they only do so to show brown people as barbaric and push Western propaganda and undercover white supremacy with how white Christian societies are progressive :rip: as if they would be some liberals if they were born in different society. Ayaan should've kept being a human rights activist and reject right-wing propaganda who literally only used her identity to cover up right-wing racism and what they really wanted is to make muslims as enemies rather than having genuine conversation about fighting against islamic conservstism (stopping Western imperialism would be the first step in that, but neolibs and neocons aren't ready for that conversation and we know why that is :mandown:)
