Gaza war: Israelis attack aid convoys sent for Palestinians
  • Oh, you're one of those false equivalence genocide - deniers that think all resistance is Hamas, only 100% eradication is genocide and the war crime of forced relocation is a mercy?

    Forget it, then. Have the day you deserve.

  • Gaza war: Israelis attack aid convoys sent for Palestinians
  • Hamas invaded areas which aren't considered occupied, and kidnapped, killed and raped innocent people. I don't care if they call this "resistance", it's terrorism.

    We were specifically talking about NON-Hamas Palestinians, though, not that terrorist group.

    I disagree with your view of the IDF

    It's not "my view". It's the facts of the matter as per international law.

    Hamas and the IDF would be fairly equivalent in this case (except for the fact that the IDF has more firepower).

    No. Just no. One is one of the most advanced and well-funded militaries in the history of the world and the other is a terrorist group usually firing unguided rockets. While both are despicable, there's absolutely no equivalence.

    Especially since the IDF isn't fighting Hamas. They're eradicating the civilian population using Hamas as an excuse.

  • Man insults judge who sentenced him to 12 years in prison for attacking police during Capitol riot
  • Agreed. I'm pretty sure the other commenter was just pointing out the hypocrisy of disrespecting their religious symbol (since that's how fervent their jingoism is) like that and I was just explaining how the law specifically endorses duch hypocrisy lol

  • Reminder...
  • I'm just pointing out your obvious projection. That you automatically call that "no you" rather than consider whether I might be right only confirms my point further.

    I'll bet you dollars to donuts that the poor niece you keep defaming is actually much more reasonable than you are. Possibly better at reading too.

    You should go do something fun in stead of just repeating the same misconceptions again and again.

    Maybe play some Fallout New Vegas or watch Barbenheimer back to back?

  • Gaza war: Israelis attack aid convoys sent for Palestinians
  • Please don't lump all Israelis together with a small group of extremists which are currently supported by our fascistic government.

    I'm not. I'm saying that these extremists make the others look bad to the point that it's difficult for non-absolutists such as myself to argue against collective punishment. Apologies if I was unclear.

    This is no different to saying all Palestinians are bad and should be sanctioned because of Hamas.

    Yeah it is. Whereas Palestinians are resisting (sometimes in less than optimal ways) a genocidal occupation force, these Israelis are safe and still trying to help that same force starve innocent civilians to death. That's VERY different.

  • Man insults judge who sentenced him to 12 years in prison for attacking police during Capitol riot
  • I'm pretty sure that only counts for remaking a literal flag into one of those things, not clothes, bedding, or drapery designed to look like one.

    Silly distinction, I know, but that's how it usually goes in that FUBAR "justice" system..

  • Man insults judge who sentenced him to 12 years in prison for attacking police during Capitol riot
  • “You’re Trump’s worst mistake of 2016,” Quaglin told McFadden, who was nominated to the court by then-President Donald Trump in 2017.

    Same amount of attention to detail and grasp of readily available facts as his Dear Leader, I see..

  • Gaza war: Israelis attack aid convoys sent for Palestinians
  • It's despicable behavior like this that makes it really hard to convince people that it's only their fascist government that's atrocious and should be sanctioned.

    They're really not making a good case for not being treated exactly like Apartheid South Africa and Putin's Russia..

  • Reminder...
  • Just saying “nuh-uh!” Over and over doesn’t change the facts

    Neither does putting words in my mouth with endless strawmen and pretending to not understand simple English.

    Get a better answer argument (and better personal responsibility) that a selfish year old.

    Right back at you, chief.

  • More House Democrats Say 'No' to Netanyahu Speech to Congress
  • First of all, Democrats don't control congress

    The GOP majority is so razor thin that the power of the speaker is pretty much the only difference between the current situation and them being in control. And the speaker's chair is getting awfully wobbly..

    Secondly, we're talking about these specific Democrats and not all Democrats. Please do not muddy the waters.

    Ok, that's fair. My apologies.

    So, again, what should these specific Democrats do?

    Lobby their colleagues in the Senate and the White House for the aforementioned boycott and sanctions, rally their constituency behind the cause, generally do a better job of forcefully repudiating the criminal leader of a fascist apartheid regime currently committing genocide than saying lukewarm stuff like "it's not a good time right now" and "too divisive"

    To those not familiar with the hilarious Fern Brady: there's probably absolutely miniscule overlap between people who like her style of comedy and those who like hacks like Iglesias and Dunham.

    No clue about Gilmore Girls fandom overlap, though.

    That's like saying "oh, you like gummy bears? I bet you also like pasta carbonara!" 😄
