Obama, Shit, and Tumblr: SHHH! YOU FUCKED UP.. THISIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU'RE NOT OUALIFIED left-reminders: phoenix-ace: left-reminders: They stay scapegoating Obama for shit he didnt create and infantalize trump in order to make Obama look like he forced Trump to be awful. As if the man wasnt a segregationist whos been xenophobic for decades. Edit: not OP the “they” doesnt refer to them. Leftists aren’t “scapegoating” Obama or sympathizing with Trump. We’re just being honest about the regressive policies of Obama and the Democrat establishment. Trump is demonstrably awful, a garbage excuse for a human being, but can we please not excuse the imperialism and mass surveillance and rich-catering of Democrats just because they trumpet progressive values? Part of overcoming Trump is recognizing and organizing against the conditions that gave rise to him: 40 years of trickle-down economics, drug wars, international interventions for the profits of big oil, and active union-busting, to name a piece of the puzzle. Vote for Democrats as damage control if you want, but just know that they’re ultimately not on your side. They serve the rich first and foremost. Y’all democrats have to realize that bush set up ICE, wiretapping of the American people, ruined our education system, stripped us of countless civil liberties, sent us to Two wars, pushed the patriot act. and Obama continued all this and even extended the bush tax cuts and expanded warfare. Now trump has all these tools at his disposal as democrats rehabilitate bush and pretend Obama wasn’t complicit in any of this 🙄

Drone, Obama, and True: STRENGTH MPERIALISM beyonslayed: c-bassmeow: beyonslayed: This post is wack cause Obama was full strength imperialism if anything Trump’s (unintentionally) impeding the US from exercising its might i agree except with the last part cus Trump is expanding war in a few more countries as well as increasing drone strikes by hundreds of percentage points so what am i missing?   wanting to tank NATO, alienating European allies, tearing up the Iran deal, picking a (more overt) fight with China , leaving the UN human rights council, etc That may be true but there is again many counterfactuals to this narrative that trump is impeding the US’s ability to exercise its might. He wants to invade Venezuela and had to be talked out of it even tried to convince the Colombian President and even mentioned it in meetings despite his aides pleading him not to , he has warhawks as advisors who will, mark my words enter us in more wars or proxy wars, The Syria bombing and military efforts, he may be alientatint NATO but he also had their troops stationed around Russia’s borders despite liberals claiming he’s soft on Russia, and again he has increased military actions in more countries and increased drone strikes so tearing up deals doesn’t mean much when we are still the military bully of the world killing more innocent brown civilians then before. I hate Obama but still . what you said is partly true by establishment PR friendly standards and yes he’s scaling back on some things (some which are good like environmental agreements). he’s throwing over the chess game that establishment types set up but he’s actually much worse in other areas. I don’t think he’s damaging US imperialism but just taking it in a different direction. His regime will support right wing governments around the world and he will as all presidents do arm terrorists and paramilitary groups.

80s, America, and Children: Ronald Reagan / Died June 5, 2004, Bel-Air, Los Angeles, CA sauvamente: lkeke35: sugarbrownbabydoll: marginalised: cflat-major: louisthesixteenth: its a national holiday Celebrating someone’s death seems like a really macabre thing to do. Like I get that people don’t like him because of how his administration dealt with the AIDS epidemic, but promoting someone’s death as a good thing doesn’t sit well with me. during his administration, we had a problem with abuse of patients in mental healthcare facilities (asylums, but don’t call them that), and his response to it was just to shut down the entire system. he closed all public mental healthcare facilities because a few of them were mistreating patients, and all those mentally ill people suddenly found themselves homeless without the skills necessary to survive in the general populous. he’s the reason why our healthcare system is so terrible, and he’s to blame for the homelessness epidemic (i’ll get into the next reason why he’s responsible for our high homeless population in a sec). millions of people lost everything because of reagan. thousands died. he also completely restructured our economy. from 1776 until he became president, we had an economic system like no other (look up the American School), but he removed most of the rules and regulations we had to keep the system in place because our system at the time limited accumulation of wealth. we had a built-in buffer that kept most people middle class. when he restructured our economy so he and his friends could get richer, reagan removed the safeguards that kept us out of poverty (most of the time), so now the lower echelons of society were in freefall towards homelessness. people lost their homes and businesses because the rich could do basically whatever they wanted now. superstores like wal-mart rose to prominence and pushed out small businesses because of this. our government also greatly reduced its expenditure on infrastructure. ronald reagan’s greed is why we don’t have enough trains and all our roads are falling apart. he also expanded our already bloated military while in power. one of his slogans was “peace in strength.” his goal for our country was to get an iron grip around the rest of the world and impose our own agendas on other countries at gunpoint. One of the first things reagan did when he came to power was to ignore the supreme court’s earlier ruling, ignore the constitution, and try to enforce a mandatory daily christian prayer time in all schools. when government workers went on strike against him and his policies, he fired 11,345 people. he put 11,345 people out of a job because they didn’t like him. he lowered taxes for the rich, but increased taxes on the poor, contributing to the aforementioned lack of infrastructure and homelessness crisis. he also began privatising the government, which put thousands of jobs at risk and made wealthy capitalists the men who run our country. reagan is responsible for trickle down economics. after the great depression, our government put in social programs to help people stay afloat, like universal healthcare for the elderly and disabled, basic income (the government paid people to dig ditches if they couldn’t find any other jobs. the ditches didn’t serve any purpose, but those people needed money and the government was willing to give money to anyone who worked), and food stamps. ronald reagan slashed all these programs and more, like the EPA, which made sure we were a “green” country. as a result of these slashes, people who had been secure on government assistance programs were now having to take out loans and get into debt, which jeopardised our economy. we had a stock market crash because people were becoming too poor to buy stocks, and our national debt increased by 3 times. we went from $997 billion in debt to $2.85 trillion in 1987. he also pushed us further into the cold war. previously, our relations with russia were cooling down a bit, but during reagan’s second term, he began actively threatening russia again. ronald reagan brought us to the brink of a nuclear war that would have killed all humans on earth. Ronald Reagan and Maggie Thatcher, the most hated prime minister in UK history, were close friends. he was also personal friends with Donald Trump. Under reagan, we resumed a history of violent military imperialism in foreign countries, most notably lebanon, afghanistan, and pakistan. In lebanon, we tried to stop a revolution against an oppressive regime, and in afghanistan and pakistan, reagan ordered the CIA to train civilians and create a military force to fight russia for us. Reagan created the taliban, a militant group that even today publicly dismembers people for playing games in public. they cut off children’s hands. He also began dealing weapons with China, betraying our longstanding ally, Taiwan, destabilising politics in the pacific. Under his orders, we secretly aided african and south american military dictatorships in crushing their opposition. He assisted Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran who started the 1979 revolution, in purging political opposition from the government. in 1988 our military shot down an iranian commercial flight, killing 290 civilians. Reagan was a Nazi sympathiser and referred to slain SS officers as “victims” of the war. just to make sure you read that right: Ronald Reagan supported the Nazis. He declared the war on drugs, a movement that has greatly increased the disproportionate incarceration rates of african american and latino men in this country. During Reagan’s second term, 115,000 people were diagnosed with AIDS and 70,000 died of it. Reagan did nothing to curb the spread, despite knowing that the AIDS epidemic almost exclusively affected black people and the LGBT community. when he learned how many people were dying and who they were, he laughed. he laughed at our suffering while we were dropping dead. In short, Ronald Reagan was a wealthy, selfish, greedy, capitalistic, imperialist, racist, ableist, homophobic, genocidal, antisemitic, warmongering, backstabbing murderer. Ronald Reagan was a monster. Wow and this didn’t even cover the crack epidemic It doesn’t cover the crack epidemic, or the various wars in South America, that resulted in the refugees immigrant crisis now. There’s a book called as the band played on about the AIDS crisis in the 80s and early 90s and how the conservative movement and Reagan basically steamrolled over AIDS activists. They basically denied that aids even existed for years before they even acknowledged it. the only reason they acknowledged it was because it started to affect heterosexual people and children. before that it was just a dreaded gay disease. Ronald Reagan was the devil and we are lucky that he is dead, but we are still suffering from his policies, rampant conservatism and his being anti anyone that wasn’t a straight white male.

America, Animals, and Cars: glumshoe glumshoe glumshoe glumshoe Lyft driver: "Your name, is Slavic? Me too. Bulgarian. I drive fast for you, brother." Now he's waxing philosophical about the Ottoman Empire imperialism, and human nature. "Humans? We are the most dangerous animal. Other animals, they kill when they need to We kill when we think we need to. It is not the same" He just monologued about climate change and the military industrial complex, and the difficulty of having a Balkan identity when every Balkan country changes hands "every twenty years". "Our history is getting swallowed by the biggest fish, and that fish getting swallowed by the next biggest fish, and so on." He had so many more gems. We compared family names, realized that his daughter shares my grandfather's name (the feminine version), and then he started talking about The Old Country. The city where he grew up had a population of 300, and the population of his whole country could fit inside Chicago. He came here twenty years ago seeking a better life, but "everything in America is too big, the cars, the problems, the inequality" He pointed to his phone and called it "stupid little computer" that's meant to control his life, not to improve it, and how the world is getting steadily worse and the little people can't do anything about it. He told me to continue my studies so that I don't grow up to work in the service industry and can instead try to stop the concentration of power into the hands of corrupt people. Then he shrugged and said, "But who knows? Can anyone do it? I don't know if it's possible." I tipped him 25% You just met an Old God Paging Neil Gaiman

Af, America, and Apparently: FOX NEWS .com Twisted Ivy: Harvard students say US bigger threat to world peace than ISIS Published October 08, 2014| FoxNews.com CAMPUS REFORM They got most of their SAT questions right, but students at Harvard blew this lay-up posed by the college blog Campus Reform: Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the U.S.? Various students at the hallowed Ivy League school said they believe that America, not the Muslim fanatics who behead innocent people, is the biggest threat to world peace. The students were interviewed on the quad by Campus Reform on Saturday, and the shocking video was posted on Tuesday As a Westem evization were to b taot af he pratwe'e facing now," one student said during an interview. "I don't think anyone would argue that we didn't create the problem of ISIS, ourselves." Most of the other students interviewed shared the same sentiment- that ISIS would not exist had it not been for the past actions of the U.S. American imperialism and our protection of oil interests in the Middle East are destabilizing the region and allowing groups like ISIS to gain power," said another student. Caleb Bonham, editor of Campus Reform, conducted the interviews and said that the students' response is nothing new. "This video demonstrates the absurdity behind the bash America fad," Bonham told FoxNews.com. "Unfortunately, too many students think it is intellectual to try and piece together a reason why America is a greater threat than this terrorist organization trying to establish a caliphate through public executions, bombings and beheadings zarekthelordofthefries: writingfail: thebaconsandwichofregret: lizzysmart: sandandglass: Fox News shocked that Harvard students think the US is a greater threat to world peace than ISIS. Students who don’t agree with Fox are ‘twisted’, elitist and wrong apparently.  Source Next Gen STAND UP Did they miss the part where these kids said that ISIS wouldn’t exist without Imperialist intervention in areas like the Middle East? (I’m not singling out America because I’m British and we’ve been fucking up the world since long before America has) I love how the Harvard students give strong arguments on why the U.S. (and its allies, of course, such as Canada and Western Europe) is one of the biggest threats to world peace and all Fox News can say is “this–this is just a FAD” I think it’s really notable that their answers inherently understand the question itself moreso than Fox does, too. The question isn’t “who are the worse people” or something, it’s “who causes the biggest threat to world peace.” It’s clear that Fox doesn’t even understand what they’re asking since their only argument for ISIS being the bigger threat to world peace is that they behead people. Like, yeah, beheading people is really fucking bad, but that doesn’t mean any serial killer who’s ever beheaded anyone is a major threat to world peace. They don’t grasp that it’s the systemic power of these forces and their historical abuse of that power that makes them threats, and that no moral or philosophical ideology will make the US a lesser threat to world peace (but of course they don’t fuckin get that power is the most important factor, they’re fuckin fascists).

(I’m not singling out America because I’m British and we’ve been fucking up the world since long before America has) I love how the Harvard students give strong arguments on why the U.S. (and its allies, of course, such as Canada and Western Europe) is one of the biggest threats to world peace and all Fox News can say is “this–this is just a FAD”

Hmmm the IDF, arbitrary drawing up of borders, the world bank, neoliberalism and austerity being pushed on African countries, imperialism, exploitation of natural resources, multi-national companies reaping profits off African labor and resources etc. so Macron can go suck a dick. Between 1970 and 2002 African nations received 540 billion dollars in loans from wealthy nations and the World Bank and since then they have paid back 550 billion, however they still owe 295 billion due to interest accrued in this time period. This was data from 2004 but the data is still relevant. Struggling nations needed assistance and they were given debt. We create the problem and the solution and then, fucking surprise, our solution is just another problem. It is pure exploitation. [source]

Macron was just voted in just recently and you bitches are just now complaining about his views and what he said about Africas failure and it makes it his fault?😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Idk if you annoying rats know, but a plethora of Africans LIVE IN FRANCE, they represent a huge majority in Macrons “uuuge” victory in France. They obviously like the role he is campaigning. Once again, Americans discrediting the other Western Liberal Nations because they’re not conservative enough ….. Smh …… 😒 Im not sure if I had a seizure or if the person who wrote this had one

Anaconda, Bad, and Beautiful: T-Mobile 12:38 PM 53 % Tweet Amritsizzurp2LaWhore @Vasheezy They made us hate ourselves: an Indian children's book, as evidence UGLY BEAUTIFUL 6/9/15, 8:32 AM Reply to Amritsizzurp2LaWhore Home Notifications Messages Me belligerentbagel: pilambdaod: xekstrin: pilambdaod: bengali-babe: “Colorism isn’t real.” Colorism? Wow because the term “racism” is so blase. pilambdaod Colorism specifically refers to people of their own race valuing lighter skin over darker skin. For example in latina culture, valuing “good” straight hair over “pelo malo” or bad, curly hair. Racism would imply we’re talking about at least two different races here; colorism specifically is about racist ideals within one race, people of one race policing others appearance within their own race.  (since this is an indian book, presumably made by indian people for indian children to read, depicting a light skinned indian woman as more beautiful than a dark skinned one, it’s colorism.) One of those is clearly Caucasian the other Indian. Creating random new “isms” only makes legitimate grievances seem petty and stupid. “One of those is clearly Caucasian” Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut  Karisma Kapoor, Shruti Haasan, Zarine Khan All actresses/models born in India to parents who were also born in India (or Pakistan), in a narrow view of “race.”  If a Papua New Guinean hooks up with a Swedish person all you get is a human.  There’s no new thing you’re going to get. You just get a human.  - Bill Nye: Race is a Human Construct (and don’t look at the comments; it’s the usual cesspool of bigots)  Ideas on “race” have been in slow development over the years, but colourism is a real thing (often with roots in imperialism, especially as Western ideas of beauty began to intrude upon countries).  The 100 Years of Beauty: Philippines has a jarring jump where April Villanueva (who has light/medium-toned skin) gets her skin darkened for the 1910s-20s aesthetic, then becomes powder-white when US/European colonial interests make a stronger influence on Philippine society in the 1930s (more in the research video).  Two more examples of skin tone variation between famous women in countries where colourism has become prevalent in celebrity culture (ie, it was a lot harder finding photos of a dark-skinned Korean actress than a light-skinned one):  Koreans: Song Hye-kyo and Lee Hyori  Filipinos: Valerie Garica and Nicole Scherzinger (active in the US; Filipino father, Hawaiian/Samoan-Russian mother)  Variation in skin colour across a “race” is as real as variation in eye colour (”oh, you have brown eyes? I guess you’re not a real Caucasian”).  Colourism also pervades a lot of modern beauty marketing.  What’s underneath your dark skin? A prettier, lighter version of yourself! Everyone should strive to be more fair and lovely because only then you’ll be happy with your flesh prison!!  tl;dr colourism exists and isn’t some bogeyman made up by “”es jay double-ews,”” and if you’re the person bemoaning how it “delegitimizes racism” then it’s likely you actually don’t care about racism at all and are just trying to devalue the arguments with the classic “but so-and-so people have it worse! how could you be so self-centered and selfish??”
