The Left hates the Jews because they're fascist Zionists. The Right hates the Jews because they're radical Marxists. Meanwhile the Chinese and the Euro-Christians are competing to see who can destroy the world quicker. by Artistic-Mastodon-25 in politics

[–]dontbuyanylogos 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

it's not a race, it's a religion, there are multiple ethnic groups within the jewish religious group, the majority I believe is Ashkenazi who originate from central Europe. There are also Beta Israel Ethiopian Jews and the original Hasidic Isrealites from modern day Palestine.

Norman Finkelstein is a Jewish man who is very critical of Israel and David Cole is a Jew who questions the official narrative of the holocaust. Mordechai Vanunu (an Israeli) exposed Israel's secret nuclear weapons program. Are you really hating on these Jews? What about Ben Shapiro, Matt Stone or Stanley Kubrick? What about the average Jew who lives and works among you? What about the person who is half Ashkenazi and half European?

Your attitude is truly misguided and if by 'we hate Jews' you mean 'we hate some Jews' then say that because you have to be a bit socially isolated and inexperienced, to put it politely, to truly hate a group of people based on some arbitrary ethnic or religious group identity.

trying to find the correct name for 'them' who control the world and who are responsible for all of the world's evils is an endless treadmill... the jews, the chinese, the marxists, the freemasons, the illuminati, the elite, the cia, the industrial capitalists, satanists, aryans, white supremacists etc. The truth is if there is a grand global conspiracy then they likely infiltrate any group that has influence and wear different masks at different times in history. It's better to point the finger at individuals than to decide "it's the x". Deciding that it is one particular group leads to a kind of tribalistic hunt the enemy mentality that always leads to innocent bloodshed.

although I like these alternative platforms the real casualty of censorship is unity and a chance for both sides to become less extreme. Gab looks like it's become a right wing echo chamber purely because the right wing voices have been banned from left wing platforms and so have migrated there. The left wing platforms have long been left wing echo chambers because of the censorship... hopefully saidit could become a platform for both sides, otherwise the divisions are going to just get deeper.

Bro Bush started the tyranny party and Obama brought girls and drinks. He expanded the surveillance state, didn't close Guantanamo Bay, didn't repeal the PATRIOT Act or give back the many civil liberties that Bush took away (warrantless wiretapping and home arrest without a warrant to name a few), was at war every day of his presidency and with 7 different countries. The health care thing was just throwing crumbs to the hungry serfs to keep them squabbling amongst themselves.

You've attributed a lot of beliefs to me that I don't necessarily hold.

The bottom line is, although you're right, the picture of the world you paint forgets the kind of authority exercised by the church in the middle ages, the kind of authority that claims to alone speak for God and uses this authority to impose its will on the masses (burning them alive as a result). The point is not that there is no such thing as authority, the point is that there is unfortunately such a thing as deliberate mass deception and those who wish to practice this craft gravitate to positions of indisputable authority, not because there's anything necessarily wrong with authority in itself but because deceivers need the shield of indisputable authority to protect themselves from apocalypse.

well if you're right then Finkelstein would have jumped the gun a bit wouldn't he... i dont think you are though, I think she's saying it's offensive to Germans and Jews (who suffered under Nazi rule). She also starts off by referring to his 'references of Jewish people to Nazis'.

This is actually good news. The more they censor and reveal their totalitarian natures the more reason it is to move to alternative platforms and set up alternative companies with independent servers, underpinned with the value of freedom of speech. It's time to leave these tech giants once and for all.

its just a label to discredit people like conspiracy theorist, holocaust denier, climate change denier, anti-vaxxer etc... it doesn't matter what it means, what it represents or even if it's accurate, it's just a political weapon used to discredit people. Avoid these propaganda terms like the plague. Don't use them, don't respond to them and if someone insists on pressing you on it just ask them what they think it means and talk about the term objectively and sensibly. It's modern newspeak.

Variant of Concern 202012/01 - The new coronavirus strain found in the UK by dontbuyanylogos in Coronavirus

[–]dontbuyanylogos[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I would love to hear from people who have studied biology or epidemeology how valid the methods of detection are. From what I can tell they haven't actually isolated this virus and they have concluded that it exists using data analysis only:

"The new variant was detected in early December 2020, combining genome data with knowledge that the rates of infection in Kent were not falling despite national restrictions.[4]

The two earliest genomes that belong to the B.1.1.7 lineage were collected on 20 September 2020 in Kent and another on 21 September 2020 in Greater London.[14] These sequences were submitted to the GISAID sequence database (sequence accessions EPI_ISL_601443 and EPI_ISL_581117 respectively). As of 15 December, there were 1623 genomes in the B.1.1.7 lineage. Of these 519 were sampled in Greater London, 555 in Kent, 545 in other regions of the UK including both Scotland and Wales, and 4 in other countries.[14]

Backwards tracing using genetic evidence suggests this new variant emerged in September 2020 and then circulated at very low levels in the population until mid-November. The increase in cases linked to the new variant first became apparent in late November when Public Health England (PHE) was investigating why infection rates in Kent were not falling despite national restrictions. PHE then discovered a cluster linked to this variant spreading rapidly into London and Essex.[15]

Although the variant was first detected in Kent, it may never be known where it originated. Discovery in the UK may merely reflect that the UK does more sequencing than many other countries. It has been suggested that the variant may have originated in a chronically infected immunocompromised person, giving the virus a long time to replicate and evolve.[16][4]"
