As always, fascists are only good at stealing symbolism

Biden plans to send $1bn arms shipment to Israel (www.bbc.com)

spoilerThe White House has told Congress it wants to send more than $1bn (£800m) in new weapons to Israel. This comes despite the US being opposed to a full-scale invasion by the Israeli military on the southern Gaza city of Rafah. It said last week it had paused a shipment of bombs to Israel over concerns civilians would be...

All those cars and solar panels that Chinese companies counted on selling in the US must go somewhere. Every other country in the world (excluding the EU, although to a lesser extent than the US) isn’t hell-bent on sanctioning China, their production will be just redirected elsewhere.

And since the US, biggest net importer in the world, just stopped… importing, there will be more goods sought after by less money, AKA more supply (old supply + goods that can’t profitably be sold in the US anymore) but less demand (since the US just passed these new tariffs) and as you know, this is gonna make prices fall, maybe not a drastic fall but still.

What a Zoom cashier 8,000 miles away can tell us about the future of work: Is a new age of digital offshoring coming? (www.vox.com)

To put a human face on the way technology changes jobs, visit a fried chicken spot called Sansan Chicken in New York City’s East Village. There, the cashier takes your order over Zoom, from over 8,000 miles away in the Philippines. Another worker in the kitchen slides your order through a small window when it’s ready. These...

He said I was mad and crying about my post being removed in the exchange we had on the original post btw, meanwhile he’s the one throwing a tantrum like a small child that we banned him and his bully friend.

Manchilds who can’t admit they’re in the wrong, or can’t take responsability for their modteam actions shouldn’t be admins.

Also i said it and I’ll say it again: it’s the funniest thing ever how just by posting a shitty meme just for the lulz I caused an instance war and got 2 “ppb-award-deservers” banned, lol

Plus (AFAIK) because of the shitty electoral system in the US, it’s really hard to even get on the ballots. So it’s not even like people who want actual change can vote somebody like West or PSL (Forgot the name of their candidate) because in half of the states they’re not even on the ballot. Fucking great

Etit: hope not to start a struggle session, but is cornel west a good candidate? He seemed miles above recent mainstream US politicians to me (keep in mind I’m not Amerikkkan, fortunately)

It’s their guidebook after all.

Gaza is Israel’s Warsaw ghetto, first you confine and starve them, then you invade and burn their homes.

Since I’m tankie-adjacent (meaningless term, more lore in the original post) and had to do with the affair I’ll just voice my opinion: I’ve seen many good people coming from that instance, both on hexbear and outside hexbear, some of them even comrades. Punishing them for the actions of their mod team seems a bit too much to me. The offenders have (rightfully) been banned from this instance, and on the rare occasion a wandering lib will post on here we can all PPB them, I’ll join too.

Also, semi-related but I love how just by shitposting on a piracy community I caused an inter-instance diplomatic crisis and had 2 (PoS) admins banned, lol wasn’t my intention but I’m glad they showed their true self, so to say.

Edit: also remaining federated while having the admins banned is such a power move lol, “hate da gubmyent not da paypoohl” but for real this time

I interact with I don’t even know how many instances, I couldn’t be bothered to make an account for every one of them honestly. If one of them would defederate from mine, I would just stop interacting. I guess it’s the same for the well-meaning users on there too, it’s way easier to have a single account to interact with (almost) any instance. And people are generally lazy, too.

Federation is one of the biggest advantages of lemmy and ActivityPub software IMO. Instances shouldn’t defederate on a whim (considering the admins, who were the libs in this case, have been banned)

BTW my main point was that the vast majority of people interacting from db0 are well-meaning and not brainwormed libs (funnily enough the worst offenders were the admins) I don’t think we should discourage them from participating on hexbear just because their admins are assholes.

But I mean, the real MVP was the comrade who posted abt it on the dunk tank, it’s only thanks to that post if the 2 admins showed up and emabarsssd themselves, giving us first the massive argument chains and then the DM spam, and after that they got what they deserved. A real shitsow, but in the funny sense.

I don’t even know a context in which half of these emojis would be used but they’re still funny I mean

You hate your instance = ban has the same energy as you come from a “tankie-adjacent” instance = post removed

(bit silly but if both actions would be translated into real world policies like expelling dissidents, or banning certain groups from entering the country they would consider it “authoritarian” and probably even “tankie”, lmao"
