Those people aren’t Trump voters, they are tankies at best and accelerationists at worst (with a generous helping of foreign sockpuppets too)

Great, now I have stage IV cancer thanks to the comments from this rag of an outlet.

This article is pretty neutral (assuming the info checks out) but they are in general a terrible publication, essentially a tabloid.

Laura Epsom? Is that Lorem Ipsum for the barbaric tribes of Britannia?

Tally ho, time for the RN to sail to the Falklands Antarctica!

True, although with Milei being as unpredictable as he is, maybe he’d offer a port for this venture.

Love to see it. Hopefully Transnistria is returned to its rightful place soon.

Coward.

Secret Hamas Files Show How It Spied on Everyday Palestinians (www.nytimes.com)

The Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar has for years overseen a secret police force in Gaza that conducted surveillance on everyday Palestinians and built files on young people, journalists and those who questioned the government, according to intelligence officials and a trove of internal documents reviewed by The New York Times....

My thoughts exactly. Nearly everyone agrees that Hamas is bad; what we object to is the grossly excessive violence being applied to all Palestinians.

I don’t know what the solution is either, but I do know that brutalizing and displacing the entire population won’t make the average Palestinian friendlier to the Israeli cause. Say what you will about the US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but at least they attempted to be more surgical.

Who cares what AI thinks?

Like, what’s the point of the screenshot?

It’s an averaged-out view of what “the internet” thinks, with extra massaging to make sure it isn’t too offensive. I think the chatbot’s take here pretty much encapsulates the general US public opinion.

Don’t know what? Do you mean about the question in the OP? I think in the USA’s case it will be much like South Africa, where there’s still tremendous resentment against Afrikaners even though they are an even smaller minority and no longer form government. I think it will take perhaps up to a century for white Americans to be treated as a minority by others.

Edit: and for the other angle of OP’s question, we could look to the ancient world. Rome, for example, didn’t care much about one’s skin colour or place of birth. Cultural assimilation was what made you acceptable or not. Speaking good Latin and being a good citizen was enough.

There multiple fundamental mistakes with that…

LLMs work by predicting which word comes next based on training data (“the internet”) and the model is then tweaked so that it doesn’t sound like 4chan. How is any of that incorrect, o wise one?

Yup. See also the rampant use of ancient busts as profile pics. For some reason they are obsessed with the penis-graffiti-drawing, buttsex-enjoying, poetry-writing ancient Romans (and Greeks), when I’m pretty sure a typical aristocrat of the time would find them boorish and incredibly uneducated simpletons, barely fit to till a field.

Trump has been a deep state plant all along! It’s all a psyop to discredit Qanon!

If that’s the case then OP is an enormous jackass. That still doesn’t change the fact that queer Palestinians are absolutely being oppressed in their country (or what should be a country) and this is too often swept under the rug.

The article itself talks about how much difficulty they are having, though.

As famine looms in Sudan, the hungry eat soil and leaves (www.reuters.com)

Hassan said soldiers sometimes shared their food with the children in her family, but the relief was limited. She and the other adults began skipping meals, sometimes for two days straight, so the children could eat. Tree leaves boiled in water and sprinkled with spices became a part of their diet....

Yes. With the Panda, it’s “eats shoots and leaves” vs. “eats, shoots, and leaves”
