Adam Smith gulped, David Ricardo started to sweat, Milton Friedman’s bottom lip quivered, and Karl Marx sat attentively…

“Yes Robinn,” they all said in unison.

It was unclear what motivated his action, but he threw leaflets espousing anti-government conspiracy theories into the air before the incident.

What anti-govt. conspiracy theories?

No need, the DNC will pay them off to make sure Trump’s free to run against Biden.

The DNC specifically tried to elevate Trump so they could shift the Republican Party right instead of moving themselves left, the propping up of the GOP as a “greater evil” by the DNC to prevent genuine leftward opposition not just shown in this case, but by the disparity between the level of terror directed against the GOP as opposed to left wing groups not just as abroad but also at home, where supposedly Trump is a fascist who cannot be allowed to gain power or else Democracy^TM will end, and yet absolutely nothing is done.

Watch out for those vapor trails, pal.

It was a joke based on the proven facts that the DNC deliberately elevated Trump and has spent millions financing far-right Republican candidates as propped-up opposition? I’m not saying 9/11 was an inside job or anything.

the GOP seeing Trump for what he really is and running Haley or DeSantis

How exactly are either of these people better than Trump?

5,000 years of conflict over those fucking sand dunes.

You are not the Kwisatz Haderach and you have no clue what you’re talking about. The United States created ISIS as a proxy force against Syria, they destroyed social and economic reform in Afghanistan by funding and training the Mujahideen (leading to the creation of the Taliban and Al Qaeda) so they could lure the USSR into “invading” the country (and also went back to bomb them for a couple of decades, preventing any new development), they (along with the British) staged a coup against the PM Mosaddegh in Iran and propped up a backward monarchy leading to the reactionary rule today, and the colonial British created Israel as a European Jewish settler-colony directly leading to the mass slaughter of Palestinians and later the occupation of Syria and conflict with Iran, Israel of course now being propped up and supplied weapons by the US as a point of influence in the Middle East. This can all be boiled down to Western imperialism.

Conflict in the Middle East is not just children “killing each other all the goddamn time” for no reason who need to be taught rationality and brought to civilization by a redditor in a sheep’s clothing. You need to straighten out why the fuck your liquified brain is covered in maggots and instead of seeing a doctor you’re using your last moments of semi-sapience to mash your head against the keyboard and act like you’ve said something profound.

The US is already at war with Iran, attempting to starve the people of Iran with sanctions and engaging in proxy wars against the IRR, including with funding to Israel. Israel does not have the power to direct the US to attack Iran.

For them, to choose Palestine in the name of the “national liberation of the peoples” would be the most internationalist answer! So, they sell us an “internationalism” which is its opposite, because internationalism means fighting against all imperialist camps, for the international class struggle, for the perspective of world revolution which alone can end war.

What? What’s the first step in the liberation and blooming of the Palestinian working class other than the end to colonial oppression, a step which at the same time weakens the chains of imperialism? Which “imperialist camp” is strengthened by the liberation of Palestine?

Great, this site has another article called “Support for ‘Free Palestine’ means support for imperialist war” (ignore the beginning, their response is the second section); they appeal to Rosa Luxembourg’s critique of Lenin’s theory of national liberation being progressive as it strikes a blow to imperialist chains by bringing up that many nations may and have become “reactionary formations,” yet this isn’t the point. It doesn’t refute both that this is the only way to weaken workers’ opportunism in the imperialist nations, and that this is a step forward in the development of the productive forces and therefore the proletariat in these nations.

Oppression and oppressed are superstructural features that have no direct relation with the basis and an abolition of a particular form of oppression has no fundamental impact on the material conditions of capitalist society. The fight of the oppressed or even the elimination of oppression of Palestinians, Blacks or women – if this would ever be possible under capitalism - does not abolish this very system. On the contrary, as is the case with the Palestinians, we can even expect that their “liberation” from the oppressing Israeli regime, if it ever succeeded at all, would most certainly lead to an oppressive regime like the other Islamic states in the region and thus not to the undermining of capitalism – not to mention its abolition.

Oh my God these people are such idiots. Whether socialist or not, the liberated Palestinian state would be a step forward in allowing new development of the productive forces and of the class struggle as well as striking a blow to Western imperialism in the Middle-East, and so would be progressive wrt to the world imperialist struggle. “Liberating a nation from colonialism will not guarantee the abolition of capitalism at once, therefore we must reject it” is just left-communist drivel.

In his theory Lenin did not only start from superstructural features, he also divided countries in the world into three main types and for each of these three types he developed different politics. But the working class is one international class and every policy that seeks to define the best tactics for each part is in contradiction with the principle that the proletarian revolution has to take place on a world-wide level and not according to specific conditions in this or that part of the world.

You want an international proletarian revolution, unity of the working class? Great, there can be no working class, no proletariat as the majority in Palestine, if industry is prevented from being developed there, if the nation is kept in colonial underdevelopment. As for the division of the working class, it was Marx who explained the English working class had become “bourgeois proletarians” due to the special interest of keeping British colonial exploitation in place to reap the benefits in bribery.

In contrast to the comrade, we are convinced that Gaza is not only a national entity but that the regime in Gaza has also several functions of a bourgeois state: it collects taxes and has an army, a juridical apparatus, detention facilities, intelligence and police personal, etc. It is the Hamas de-facto administration which exercises these state functions and has, since 2005, under the direction of a highly centralised command centre, been able to fire thousands rockets into Israeli territory. There is only one conclusion possible: the war in Gaza is a war between two imperialist states.

Because Gaza is ruled by Hamas under a state apparatus, Gaza is imperialist lenin-dont-laugh, and so the struggle is nothing but a war between Palestinian and Israeli imperialists over land! To say this, you have to ignore the class character of Israeli occupation, which was undertaken to prevent revolution among oppressed Jewish workers via opportunism/bourgeois nationalism. The ICC cements their complete lack of understanding and Western Marxist brain rot with the allegation that “from the river to the sea” does indeed mean the ethnic cleansing of the Jewish population in occupied Palestine, “a nakba in reverse.” And so the removal of colonial occupation, an act which both hastens the class contradictions within the “Israeli” population and allows the development of the Palestinian proletariat, is no different than the slaughter of Palestinians in the name of Western settler-colonialism for the very purpose of stalling the class war, or as ICC would say: “there is indeed no difference between the nationalism of Israel and the nationalism of Palestine.”

They rail against Trotskyists for being too internationalist in the second paragraph.

Israeli settlers set fire to cars, homes of Palestinians under occupation (www.aljazeera.com)

Mobs of Israeli settlers have rampaged through the occupied West Bank attacking Palestinians and their property, killing two people. The latest violence was sparked by the disappearance of a 14-year-old boy from an illegal outpost, whose body was later found.

but Iran isn’t the anti-US champion I’m backing. The enemy of my enemy isn’t a friend I have principals and they don’t involve theocracies.

“The unquestionably revolutionary character of the vast majority of national movements is as relative and peculiar as is the possible revolutionary character of certain particular national movements. The revolutionary character of a national movement under the conditions of imperialist oppression does not necessarily presuppose the existence of proletarian elements in the movement, the existence of a revolutionary or a republican programme of the movement, the existence of a democratic basis of the movement. The struggle that the Emir of Afghanistan is waging for the independence of Afghanistan is objectively a revolutionary struggle, despite the monarchist views of the Emir and his associates, for it weakens, disintegrates and undermines imperialism; whereas the struggle waged by such ‘desperate’ democrats and ‘Socialists,’ ‘revolutionaries’ and republicans as, for example, Kerensky and Tsereteli, Renaudel and Scheidemann, Chernov and Dan, Henderson and Clynes, during the imperialist war was a reactionary struggle, for its results was the embellishment, the strengthening, the victory, of imperialism. For the same reasons, the struggle that the Egyptians merchants and bourgeois intellectuals are waging for the independence of Egypt is objectively a revolutionary struggle, despite the bourgeois origin and bourgeois title of the leaders of Egyptian national movement, despite the fact that they are opposed to socialism; whereas the struggle that the British ‘Labour’ Government is waging to preserve Egypt’s dependent position is for the same reason a reactionary struggle, despite the proletarian origin and the proletarian title of the members of the government, despite the fact that they are ‘for’ socialism. There is no need to mention the national movement in other, larger, colonial and dependent countries, such as India and China, every step of which along the road to liberation, even if it runs counter to the demands of formal democracy, is a steam-hammer blow at imperialism, i.e., is undoubtedly a revolutionary step.” — https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/stalin/works/1924/foundations-leninism/ch06.htm

Hopefully, this is the only response. I can’t stand the people cheering for this or wanting further escalation. Millions will die.

Tens of thousands have died, and Israel has to be defeated.

Ew those Ukraine and Taiwan flags. “Hmm, I support US imperialism so long as the proxy force can be construed as the ‘underdogs’ fighting the big bad.” You do realize there’s no such thing as “Taiwanese sovereignty,” right (forgetting that the majority of inhabitants of Taiwan do not want separatism)? There is no “Taiwan and PRC,” but Taiwan as a vestige of ROC claims, which include both all of mainland China as well as Outer Mongolia and parts of Russia (take for example the emblem of the Republic of China Marine Corps). You’ve fallen for nonsense claims pushed by the US to fight the PRC for influence.

As for Ukraine, it’s the same deal. Exploitation of “Ukrainian independence” and support for Neo-Nazis thereof goes back to the years of the USSR with the CIA’s Operation Aerodynamic dishing support to the Nazi-collaborationist OUN. The whole reason for the recent conflict is the US-backed 2014 coup, of which the rise of Nazism was documented by the Western mainstream such as the BBC before the narrative shifted to prepare for proxy war. Ukraine is littered with Nazi monuments, its institutions and leaders paying homage to Nazi collaborators [1] [2] [3], and the government putting full support behind Nazi fighters [1] [2]. It’s hard to paint Ukraine as the victim when Ukraine’s previous president, Poroshenko, said this of his policy on Donbass: “We will have jobs—they [Russian-speakers] will not. We will have pensions—they will not… Our children will go to schools and kindergartens—theirs will hide in the brments (cellars).”

Your “democracy” is not “flawed,” it’s a sham to the core. I’m sure the Afghan children that got drone striked under both Obama and Trump see a meaningful difference between the American political parties anyways; your “democracy” is crap and it would be better for the entire world if the US was carpet bombed.

And the fear-mongering surrounding Jan. 6th is so fundamentally stupid, seriously give me a conceivable way this tiny group of chud idiots who couldn’t even hang Mike Pence for the good of humanity could have fundamentally undone American society.

There are degrees of bad and Trump is worse, of course. “Someone who has fueled a genocide for 6 months with all-you-can-drop bombs” is obviously the lesser evil to the man who sent a bunch of brainless zombies trying to climb a wall with a set of stairs feet away to overthrow the US government.
