Hi,

Just in case I need to make this clear: fuck the state of Israel and its colonialist, genocidal bullshit.

I will not be taking questions.

Feel free to unfollow if this bothers you.

BREAKING: 49-51 the Senate fails to codify Roe

The 49 Senators voting FOR codifying Roe represent ~185M Americans & the 51 Senators voting AGAINST codifying Roe represent ~144.5M Americans

A broken democracy is when despite the calls of ~40.5M MORE Americans—the system says NO

If a poll showed that 93% of Americans wanted to live, living would fail 49-51 in the Senate.

Some religions don’t allow blood transfusions. Imagine needing a life saving blood transfusion, but you’re denied because a religion you don’t follow says you can’t? Absurd.

We know abortion bans don’t decrease abortion rates, but DO increase mortality 21%

The right of the majority to medical procedures is being denied by a tyranny of a minority religious group. As a Christian, that's how I see it. A faith ban on reproductive health is their rule—which they just imposed on the rest of society

As it turns out, we do mean that, that's not just like, a joke. This country is exceptionally bad to everyone on the planet, save for the most infinitesimal fraction of people, who run it. The sooner it's destroyed, the better, that's not a joke.

I think some people think the "death to america" thing is just, like, some kind of joke or meme slogan, and, while it is of course satisfying to say, no, seriously, death to America.

white people "philosophy", politics 

@ljwrites white people think yin and yang is a balance of good and evil because we (collectively, at least) think EVERYTHING is a balance of good and evil.

It's why centrism is soooo comfortable sitting halfway between "everyone has value and deserves rights and dignity" and.. literal fascism.

Destroy fascism? Noo, that just translates to "do evil to evil" and evil is bad, so instead we should balance good and evil, so we don't have to be evil all the time.
