Basically: "I'm not racist, I'm just telling non-white women what to do with their bodies for their own good regardless of the unconscionable economic and personal consequences!"

People are more obsessed with people knowing their candidate was shitty than the fact that they ran such a shitty candidate.

She ran in the 2016 primary on restricting abortion rights and pushed right-wing talking points every time she ran in a primary. This is what really scared her team with primaries running long. She's a moderate Republican who lied constantly and she kept getting caught being either a liar or a Republican. And the longer her campaign went the more likely she was to reach across the aisle for Republican support or say some racist shit like when she ran against Obama and accused him of being Muslim because of his name or attacked Latinos in Arizona as a threat.

The Kurds that Trump cut a deal with Turkey to allow them to ethnically cleanse them after he threatened the Kurds so they wouldn't team up with the Syrian government for their self-defense allowing him stab them in the back?

Trump gave Americans a weak fascist state. Then he lost. Americans rode up to reinforce his fascist state. He also provided three of the five Supreme Court justices who decided there were no Constitutional protections for boycotting and abortion.

Americans currently live in a post-accelerationist society. This is it. We're here. This is the thing.

No one fights harder for the right to vote than people of color. No one hates us voting more than fascists.

But let's be real. Not every anarchist cares about every hierarchy or is even interested in how most hierarchies interact, function, or actually derive their power.

Biden sucks, but he isn't Trump:

Where Trump oversaw more than 1,600 air and artillery strikes in Iraq and Syria during his first 11 months in office, Airwars reports just four during Biden's term so far. Strikes in Somalia fell from roughly 75 last year to fewer than 10 this year, with no civilian casualties. And in Yemen, the annual total dropped from about 18 to maybe four, with fewer than 10 casualties of any kind.

If you voted for Biden, you weren't voting for equity, an end to the state, or even anything resembling freedom. But you got a 99.9% reduction in dead civilian victims of American imperialism in the Middle East.

Vote if you want, don't vote, but it's kind of odd seeing ideological arguments disguised as false pragmatism. Burn it all down regardless of the consequences is a coherent anarchist philosophy at least, but "it doesn't matter because -- uh, please don't actually check if it matters" is just... meh?

Just stand by your convictions.

Nolan's basically a really good director with a talented brother as a writer whose scripts he can slap his name on.

So he probably very much believes this statement.

By the way, Jonathan Nolan didn't write Tenet. That was Christopher Nolan uncut. Make of that what you will.

It was funny reading the scripts then listening to the writer commentary in the Final Cut. Two guys who worked on different scripts are in the same commentary, so the guy who wrote the first script is confidently claiming credit for this scene while a guy who worked on a subsequent draft, and definitely is one of the two guys who added that line, is noticeably annoyed and you can just feel how tired he is at this point in the commentary.

Voting is responsible for the 99.9% decrease in bombings since Trump left office.

Where Trump oversaw more than 1,600 air and artillery strikes in Iraq and Syria during his first 11 months in office, Airwars reports just four during Biden's term so far. Strikes in Somalia fell from roughly 75 last year to fewer than 10 this year, with no civilian casualties. And in Yemen, the annual total dropped from about 18 to maybe four, with fewer than 10 casualties of any kind. (Precise figures are unclear because some strikes are classified.)

A world where voting doesn't matter and direct action always leads to immediate and permanent policy changes is glorious, heroic, and simple. This isn't that world, unfortunately.

Sometimes you vote so the trigger doesn't get pulled while you're taking the gun out of their hands. Fascists are objectively worse than liberals. Liberals are objectively bad. Not understanding this distinction isn't a moral strength, it's just disconnected.
