OP/ED

Trump, Syriza & Brexit prove voting is only small part of the battle

If voting changed anything, they’d abolish it. That might sound a bit glib but consider these recent events.

Woah, that's an especially fetching Alunya you have there, OP.

I sense that a certain country is about to be liberated…

The military-industrial complex isn't even pretending anymore.

Oh look more palace intrigue.
Tillerson is like one of the few competent people in the administration.
But sure, let's force him out!

Kek let the accelerationism keep on pumpin'

we saudi arabia now

Except perhaps the unironic MAGAtards who really thought Trump would embrace some kind of neo-isolationism.

See at least they're honest.

How is Japan so degenerate yet so conservative at the same time? Or do they just vote for whatever US does?

Also I loves the US' reasoning

Incredible, even when the right wins they manage to lose

oh shit, the litten porn spam doom that came to /furry/ has begun in Britain
the computer is not your friend, Theresa
GW is really desperate for advertising ever since that FLGS owner/lawyer in Florida sued them
As is NuTrek

...

Yeah haha they totally haven't been waiting us out for the past 16 fucking years. FUCK this planet.


The eyeshadow always does it for me.


Why is everything such a fucking nightmare.

...

Can't get any more symbolic

How the fuck do you justify this though

Free speech?

What a qt

...

The resolution was worded as if it condemned all death penalties, so to defend states rights they voted against it. They condemned all the applications the resolution supposedly targeted.
America wasn't actually full retard for once and it seems the media is trying to pull a fast one for clicks.

Am I a pedo degenerate if I wanna fuck Alunya?

No, Alunya has been definitively determined to be legal

Are you the real AfroPlasm or am I being memed? I’m pretty sure the real a AfroPlasm is a prude.

People change. But god, I'm looking for affirmation.

Remember this headline, comrades. Remember it as the 10 words that started World War III.

Hmm I guess I’ll be nice to you. But no more rude posting.

We are all Afroplasm.

No u.

Considering the nations that the US surrounds itself with in the vote, that it's not actually a good vote of confidence.

Cute af

No jewsih bankers = no bailout(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)

Where can I get a plaid bikini?

wtf i hate jews now

Jews are not the problem, capitalism is.

Really hate it when Amerifats do this. Whiteness is a social category. Jews are white in America.

this is why you don't trust the Anglo

I mean, I understand why you would want to be protected by the United States, but let's be honest

Who does the United States even protect

have you never met a black jew?

Blueish people

WEW lad.

They may be changing their minds about that soon.

Fucking christ, it's like something out of The Thick Of It

to defend states rights. dude. come on. it's to defend the death penalty.

Capitalist states should not have the right to execute people.

I don't even know who's plasming who anymore.

We are all plasming

Trying to wrangle out a reason for the Afghanistan war from the brass and FP advisers is a hell of a puzzle. They don't know why they are there or what they hope to accomplish at this point. Like this is obviously a lie that plays up American chauvinism and bravado, but the US is reduced to it because it can't even offer up anything else remotely convincing.

And it reminds me of something I read… something about how resistance to imperialism heightens the contradiction between the empire and the imperialized nation, and makes it the only contradiction. Ironically, it worries me that those "top men" that run the government may actually believe their decades of propaganda meant for voter consumption. I would prefer the cynical "realist" style of even the most criminal kind like Kissinger, who at least can see when the war is going to be lost, to anyone who believes the Washing Consensus and acts on it as if it were actually true.

tis what you deserve for betraying Spain and siding with a foreign country

Well fuck. I'm going to have to live like a Fremen.

Thanks my dude

Fair point.

it's trump administration, they're scurrying off with tail between their legs from that mess in a year or two

haaaaaaaaaaahahahahaha the wheel of history is actually moving backwards

The absolute madman, it's like he's cruisin' for a coupin'!
