Man Biden is really trying to lose the upcoming election isn't he. A year ago I would not have predicted that he would fuck up such an easy reelection this badly, but here we are. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory I guess.

Apparently Biden has always been this shitty when it comes to Palestine. Some things children just never grow out of it seems.

Millions of children never grew old because of Kissingers little psychopathic padawans in Washington for decades now. Those children don’t care about this one losing or winning his little beauty contest.

And millions of children will die in the future no matter whose dick is being sucked in the Oval Office. There are more omnipotent deciders who decide who lives and who dies.

This greedy, bloodthirsty, manipulative, sociopathic voting won’t change anything no matter who wins.

Being fed up with constant bullshit and not giving known actors any more benefit of the doubt on their every single upcoming potential bullshit activity is a scary thing to possess when speaking in public spaces.

Just because a clock has sentimental value, looks cool or has some other appeal, many people would be willing to criticize you for calling out that it doesn't work. They'll take any opportunity on your claim to make you look wrong, even if the broken clock shows the right time by mistake once in every 12 hours, rest of which you correctly keep calling out.

Nah this gaslighting is just a weekly occurrence at this point. Biden pretends to wag his finger against israel when they commit war crimes and walks it back a week later. Genocide Joe is fully on board.

Hes really pulling a Hilary with this shit.

Intentionally throwing away an election he thinks is sure fire win for him, because Trumps the only other option.

The risk isnt people turning to vote for Trump, the risk is people that would have voted for him not voting at all. . Because he'd rather doom a people to extermination than fix his own country.

rimjob_rainer ,

Why does Biden want innocent people dead and why does nobody try to stop him? What has become of humanity? Has everyone gone insane?

Republican lawmakers in Congress have introduced legislation intended to prevent any further pauses in weapons shipments to the US ally.

It's all bullshit

NoLifeGaming ,

It was obvious from the start it was political posturing as he had already sent them so much and it wasn't like they immediately needed it. Just like the port to deliver aid, also posturing to look good.

ramenshaman ,

Fuck Trump, fuck Biden, and fuck Netanyahu. And while we're at it, fuck Putin and fuck Xi. Not a lot of decent people at the top these days.

TimeNaan ,

That was always the case. Being at the top pretty much requires being a bastard.

That's why the best ruler is no ruler.🏴

Waiting for our AI overlord?

TimeNaan ,

No, for horizontal, anarchist mass organization

ramenshaman ,

Anarchy is a great way to get taken over by another country. As far as I know, anyway, maybe I'm missing something.

TimeNaan , (edited )

Historically, anarchists have been very good at organizing effective and well motivated armies. Usually with democratically elected officers. Look up the Black Army of Makhno, CNT-FAI, EZLN and YPG, these are all good examples of anarchist (or anarchist-adjacent) armies.

Lumisal ,

Statistically and unfortunately however, they have been very bad at not being taken over by non-anarchy eventually. And it'll likely get worse for a while with robotics.

Source: Look at world map.

TimeNaan ,

Robotics are not that great at fighting against insurgencies. Just like most technology, it usually isn't enough to destroy movements that are popular among the wider population. Look at the Afghanistan war for example.

Lumisal ,

I should clarify: advanced autonomous robotics.

TimeNaan ,

Ok, but that's not the point I was making. I meant that vast technological superiority does not mean military superiority.

Guerrillas and militias have been very effective at combatting powerful empires throughout history because they have the backing of the populace and can hide and resupply with ease, unlike invading forces.

This will not change because of a single technological advancement, especially since insurgents can also use this technology themselves.

Lumisal ,

That's not a single technological advancement though, it's multiple.

But either way, I think it'll make a difference because it eliminates a big factor that's always been present:

Humans.

Autonomous robots would never tire, would be able to maintain themselves to a degree, and the controlling force never has to worry about their loyalty. Also eases stress on the empire's citizens because they're not the ones being sent to fight anymore, either. Easier to do the bread and circuses.

Hopefully I'll be wrong about it.

Crikeste ,

Fuck them all. I just hope Americans are ready for the terror they’ve spread around the world, to be in their streets.

krzschlss ,
@krzschlss@lemmy.world avatar

Can’t wait for tomorrow’s most upvoted posts on Reddit and Lemmy teaching us how the other clowns from the rival circus are still worse. While condemning the killings of children in Gaza with those weapons sold today.

It’s impossible there was ever a society this manipulated and stupid.

can ,

Don't they have a point though? Your system is broken and the lesser of two evils is all you ever get to pick.

Cosmonauticus ,

Yeah but when you point that out you're called a idiot for unintentionally backing Trump. Any criticism of the system or Biden no matter how deserved somehow is support for Trump

homesweethomeMrL ,

The package can be blocked by Congress if a majority in both chambers object.

Now we get to find out how many of our excitingly new progressives know who their representatives are. Or even if they have representatives. If they do, can they work out the seekrit next steps? Only time will tell.

SwingingTheLamp ,

No, it's actually not true. First-past-the-post voting mathematically tends to result in 2 dominant parties, but there's no mathematical rule that determines which 2 parties. The first two in American history were the Federalist Party, and the Democratic Republican Party. The duopoly has changed several times over the years, and it could change again if we wanted it. Democratic voters have affirmatively made the choice that supporting genocide is better (read: easier) than trying to shake things up.

PriorityMotif ,
@PriorityMotif@lemmy.world avatar

There's a large number of Jewish people who are Democrats and politicians are more worried about points than doing the right thing.

yetAnotherUser ,

You will change the Democrat-Republican duopoly as soon as you convince everyone to stop participating in consumerism (beyond one's basic needs).

Which is to say: never.

The last time neither a Republican nor a Democrat was President was more than a century ago. Good luck changing the people's habits as well as the monumental support structures both parties have erected to prevent any third party from gaining traction, ranging from super PACs to literally the entire American news network, including social media.

juicy ,

The thing about the lesser of two evils is you actually have to be less evil.

absentbird ,

Trump is easily more evil, he wants to accelerate the genocide. But even if you consider their position on Gaza as identical, he's so much worse in all the other ways; he wants to give massive tax cuts to billionaires, criminalize trans people, and pass a national abortion ban. We cannot let that happen.

juicy ,

Next to genocide, those are rounding errors

kaffiene ,

FFS. Biden is a complete cunt. Trump GOP is still worse

Mastengwe ,

Wait, you mean to tell me that a bunch of twenty-somethings have figured it all out and everyone else is entirely wrong about everything? Where have this happening before????

Oh yeah… that’s right. Every election cycle.

Nuance is for people who don’t want to be constantly outraged by everything that ever happens.

bartolomeo ,

We can do it. We can make him dumber than he was. Dumber, weaker, slower.

DancingBear ,

Damn, Biden doesn’t want to win the election or save democracy

Aceticon ,

Maybe the Democracy you think is still there to be saved is already gone and all you have left is the folklore of it rather than the real thing.

It would certainly explain Biden's dictatorial persistence on supporting the Zionist Genocide all the way with weapons and ammo even when the majority of Americans has turned against it, his and his party's reaction to student demonstrations and how all of this would make no sense for somebody trying to avoid losing the election to Trump.

I lived in a country with Proportional Vote and what we're seeing from the elected leader of the US would never happen there in an election year, not even close, as the politicians there trully fear electoral defeat.

TimeNaan ,

I disagree, living in such a country. Our self-declared "left wing" was eager to participate in both Iraq and Afghanistan and host CIA black sites on our soil.

There is no democracy in global capitalism. There can only be different shades of authoritarianism.

SuddenDownpour ,

Headline from two days ago:

‘Total outrage’: White House condemns Israeli settlers’ attack on Gaza aid trucks

My comment on it:

It’s taken them over half a year, but Biden has finally discovered that Israel is committing crimes against humanity. Let’s hope they don’t forget about it the second Netanyahu pretends to be a little bit obedient.

Damn, really speedrunning that disappointment, huh

mlg ,
@mlg@lemmy.world avatar

Lol my comment from last week which got heavily downvoted:

Considering Biden repealed his settler sanctions, I'd actually bet this eventually gets approved after Israel promises to pay shipping fees in exchange for breaking the SLA stating they can't do a genocide

mfw he doubled down and approved another massive sale on top of the smaller blocked shipment.

thejml ,

Because the GOP Congress was about to go around him if he didn’t. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/house-gop-pushes-bill-to-force-biden-to-continue-transfer-of-weapons-to-israel/ar-BB1mq29M?ocid=nl_article_link

Really wish he’d have grown a spine and stuck to not sending them, let the GOP look bad and don’t abandon your own base. I hate this political environment.

eestileib ,

💞Joe 💞 Bibi 💞

TheUncannyObserver ,

The lesser of two evils, ladies and gents.

bdonvr OP ,

Yeah well uh, Trump would've sent 1.2bn

juicy ,

Trump would have sent $1,000,000,000.01, so Biden is clearly the lesser evil

distantsounds ,

Genocide, whaddaya gunna do. Your tax dollars at work.

https://lemmy.world/pictrs/image/86e8e45e-c5bd-4604-9853-f7cf62f59393.png

TokenBoomer ,

Trump would have sent $2 billion, just sayin’ /s

Zedstrian ,

He would've sent everything meant for Ukraine to Israel, and more.

givesomefucks ,

The package can be blocked by Congress if a majority in both chambers object.

Reminder that Biden has already went around Congress this year to send weapons to Israel.

Checks and balances only matter when it can be used to stop things voters want for some reason.
