    Gotta love how a stupid laser eye edit is enough to send the fascists and their red painted collaborators into a spiraling rage about how easy it is to make them look like idiots.

    Biden didn’t even have to do anything for this one, it was all the morons doing it to themselves

          Self proclaimed leftists who curiously always insist on the course of action that most expediently grants power to the fascists.

          Usually under the guise of teaching those nasty wasty establishment dems a lesson for amything ranging from not doing what they want to doing what they want but not as zealously as they think it should have been done to attempting to do it exactly as demanded but getting blocked by the republican stacked court system, (never ask these “leftists” why the republicans were able to stack those courts), to even doing the thing exactly as demanded but it wasn’t done by Bernie Sanders or the ghost of Upton Sinclair so “fuck you and your lib shit!”

          The more mask off ones will just outright say they’re accelerationists who see everyone else losing their rights and lives as worth it for the white privilege socialists to be able to have their rapture revolution afterwards. “First Hitler then our Turn” energy if you’re familiar with Thalman’s communist party in Weimar Germany.

            I’m still deciding what I’m going to do, but will the democratic party not just keep moving towards the right if they know they can get our votes as long as they’re just to the left of the republicans? Are we just cooked no matter what we do?

              The US has a long way ahead if it wants to make its democracy functional again. They’re proud of their old democracy, but there’s nothing to be proud of when clearly it needs serious reforms to prevent fundamental flaws like the one you mentioned.

              Direct action, community work, and trying to make people more radically democratic helps.

                  Since first coming into existence, Socialist groups have used the colour red (‘the blood of the people’) for their primary colour. This is why anywhere except the US, the ‘left’ parties - republicans in a ‘fuck the monarchy’ variety - use the colour red.

                  So the joke here is it’s non-Left-leaning people who ‘paint themselves red’ to pretend to be what they are not.

      Some right wing pro-Trump conspiracy theorists think that Taylor Swift is some sort of government asset and that the Super Bowl was rigged in order for the Chiefs to win and that it’d be used as a platform for Taylor Swift to endorse Biden or brainwash viewers or something.

      This tweet is poking fun, like ‘everything is going according to plan’. But in real life the heavily favored team won, Swift was there because she’s the girlfriend of one of the players, and Taylor Swift fans are generally left-leaning because demographics

        All correct except the “heavily favored team won”. The Chiefs weren’t really seen as a good team for most of the year and weren’t expected to win.

            They did win last year, but their team looked nothing like the same team for most of the season. In the last few years, they’ve been known for their high powered offense, putting up tons of receiving yards every game. This year, their offense was pretty bad, especially their receiving during regular season. But their defense was playing well and allowed them to make the playoffs. If you look at power rankings from the first week of the playoffs, most people had them in the bottom part of their rankings.

          Most of the year is irrelevant. They had a stellar post-season and nobody is calling it an “upset” because it wasn’t surprising to anyone that the Chiefs pulled it off.

              Ok, but when a “heavily favored team” loses, that’s called an upset. I’m not really invested at all in this, just wanted to note that lots of folks were betting on the chiefs and that the regular season isn’t that good of a proxy for post season performance. I wish your favored sportsball team good fortune.

        A while back there was an incident where someone tried to say Fuck Biden and apparently it came out sounding like Brandon. So people started saying Brandon for their own pettyness where they thought saying Brandon and not just saying fuck Biden was more professional. (Cowards)

        Then Bidens office owned it after a photo came out where they cropped a blue and red background to look like Biden was just standing in front of just a red background (ominous, like the sith) instead of acting like a child and when they made “aggressive” moves or did something the republican party didn’t like they started using the term Dark Brandon that popped up online.

        Republicans were saying Swift was possibly going to endorse Biden, which is dumb, why would she split her income base while making millions/billions. So the Biden administration trolled them by saying “just like we planned it” insinuating that the game was rigged for Kansas City to win, so Swift would have a large platform to announce her support.

        As far as I know Swift has done nothing but tell people to make sure they vote…Republicans don’t like that, as Trump lost the majority vote in both elections he was in, but managed to still win the 2016 election due to the electorial college.

          A while back there was an incident where someone tried to say Fuck Biden and apparently it came out sounding like Brandon.

          Specifically a crowd chanted “fuck Joe Biden” and a person giving a media interview tried to play it off as them saying “Let’s go Brandon” because she was interviewing Brandon Brown live after he won a race.

          From their perspective, this was intentional to try to silence them so they ran with it, and hence the meme was born. The whole point is the media being cowardly and trying to silence them (in their eyes), not them being afraid to say what they mean. So it’s supposed to be a simultaneous jab at Biden and at the media.

      It would be if israel didn’t start bombing Rafah during the super bowl killing at least 67 people while israel played their $7million 30 second super bowl commercial about khamassss to brainwash Americans.

      There’s a conspiracy theory that the Superbowl was rigged for the Chiefs so that Taylor Swift would somehow be able to throw more support to Biden. Some even said she’d come out during halftime and make a plug for him.

      It is referring to the rampant evil fascism that both the DNC and the RNC are engaging in.

        https://www.mlive.com/news/flint/2023/12/latest-testing-shows-lead-in-flints-water-but-levels-remain-below-federal-threshold.html

        Lead levels were below the federal threshold in 2023, although they did rise in the second half of the year.

        Speaking as a chemical engineer, it is impossible to remove 100% of a contaminant, no matter what substance we’re talking about. All you can do is reduce the concentration until it’s in benign levels, which is what the federal thresholds are. I had a college class that briefly mentioned it once, but the standard iirc is effectively set at a value where the increased risk of injury is lower than everyday exposure risks.

        In other words – if you’re going to go all “both sides”, pick something which is an actually an issue, instead of spreading fake news and pontificating on it. If both sides are truly as equally bad as you say, you can surely find a different issue which is still a problem, instead of one that is largely solved. And hey, if this is the best you can find, maybe that says something about your claim.

          A “both sides” guy should be able to show that these two parties are equally bad in all ways, or that if one party is better for one aspect they are worse in a different aspect. I don’t think they can.

          Especially where we are at: one party committed an insurrection and is running the insurrectionist as their candidate. There is no room for acting like they’re equally bad, because the book burnings have already started.
