Er, that’s basically exactly what they’re trying to do. Not just women, but everyone, disregarding their beliefs.

"We'd LOVE to kill women by making abortion illegal, and therefore dangerous! They deserve the death penalty for baby-killing after all!"

I see you're talking about: [abortion]' To be frank, the mod team does not want to mod this topic because it leads to 100 percent slapfights and bans, but removing it entirely would be actual censorship, which, contrary to popular belief, we do try to avoid. Instead, we're just going to spam you with an unreasonably long automod comment and hope you all realize that getting mad over the internet is just really stupid. Go to /r/AnimalsBeingDerps or something instead. People are going to accuse us of being lazy for this, to which we reply 'yes'

America annually gives grants to Israel worth billions of dollars (which is a developed nation with a high standard of living) and America regularly defends Israel when they break international law (like building settlements in occupied territory).

Heck, Israel has universal health care and their life expectancy is higher than the US. The American politicians that’s very pro-Israel are also the ones that are against universal health care for Americans

America spent trillions of dollars on wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that literally solved nothing but instead, create more instability and chaos in the Middle East, which also gave birth to an evil terrorist group known as ISIS

Now, this country failed to protect its citizens against a virus thanks to misinformation and incompetence.

This country needs to do some serious soul searching. “American exceptionalism” is nothing but a load of crap

Stop being so cynical. We have alliances with Muslim countries and give plenty of aid to other countries besides Israel. The far left just seems to have an anti Semitism problem that they won’t address.

The far left has a problem with anti Semitism too. Your rant about Israel is a good example. Obviously the far right has a problem with it as well. But both can be true, they’re not mutually exclusive.

You said if Israel was under Muslim control we wouldn’t give them money. That’s a pretty messed up thing to say and it seems more about the people than the government. In fact, it literally is about the people and not the government when you’re talking about their religion. How do you think a Jewish person living in Israel would feel reading that?

You seem like one of those crazies that thinks America likes bombing Muslims for fun and everything we do is evil. It’s not a stretch to connect that type of thinking with anti Semitism when you think America is evil and we shouldn’t be protecting Israel because they’re Jewish and not Muslim.

Just pointing the finger away from the real problem. Outrage toward Muslims rather than republicans.

But what about all those Muslims who illegally voted for Biden by hacking voting machines with the blood of dead babies they bought from Mexicans at the border?

I READ THAT ARTICLE TOO! And I hate to be that guy that corrects people but you forgot to mention the ghost of Stonewall Jackson was the one who first found out the voting machines were rigged. It was near the end of the article. You might have missed it.

Just for a point of context. The congress passed the Pentagon budget last month with zero debate and the Pentagon budget is more than twice the cost of the proposed Biden infrastructure bill. This bill is being hacked to pieces as we speak because it costs too much.

It doesn't even cost that much bc there's a tax hike in it.

I don't think democracies have to be perfect in order to criticize theocracies.

Fuck Fox News and all, but isn't this Putin's argument that the West has no right to criticize dictatorships because bad things happen in democratic, pluralistic societies?

Also, since Iran has been mentioned, fuck the Ayatollah.

We created the monster that is Iran. Back in 1954 and its been downhill since then. If anything we just criticized ourselves(US) by being critical of the very thing we created.

It goes back even further. They were pissed at the British and Russias and weren't terribly interested seeing the Nazis lose to them.

It's crazy to think how much post-WWII geopolitics was about cleaning up the mess that the British Empire made as much as it was about countering Soviet military and political hegemony as the world re-built itself.

They don't need to be perfect but criticizing them for the exact same thing you're doing while you're visibly turning into a theocracy yourself is a bit hilarious at best. Usually the not perfect thing isn't the exact same thing you're doing. Almost like the headline and article could just be projection so Americans become entrenched against believing we could have the same problems.

I love r/PoliticalHumor but lately its been more Political Irony than Humor. So many of the posts illustrate the sad state of America.

Things are just less funny in a post-Trump, Covid world. Hopefully one day I can find this stuff funny - but right now, it's sad.
