    Keep in mind that, at this point in the story, literally everyone...

    Well most of the common Republican talking points have already been debunked countless times, it's just that they never actually acknowledge that they're wrong and then come back the next time saying...

    You've kind of leaned too hard into defending the GOP and bashing the Democrats to try and pretend to be a neutral observer now, might as well just own it. And yeah, we've all heard of the Lincoln...

    Well they say that America is the land of second chances, but evidently it's also the land of third, fourth, fifth, sixth, or however many chances Gordon has got already. The dude had ONE great...

    Morrison's Jean is an interesting case study because he clearly was using her as a proxy for his own failed relationships and was setting her up to be the bad guy, but in the process of writing that...

    The sad thing is that Republicans could easily sweep up a ton of minority voters if they would just stop openly antagonizing them, since most tend to be more socially conservative than whites, and...
  7. I love how Republicans always act like they've...

    I love how Republicans always act like they've uncovered some long buried secret when they point out that the Democrats were the party of Jim Crow, but that's pretty much common knowledge to anyone...

    At least for blacks and Hispanics, the GOP tries to recruit a handful of token faces to try and deflect criticism, however unconvincing they might be. But Asians are not considered an important...
  9. I'm not sure you quite understand how voting...

    I'm not sure you quite understand how voting works, a party system that pitted the 99% against the 1% would have predictable results. The only way the GOP in its current configuration is able to win...

    I get that self-respect is difficult to find these days among Asian Americans, but some of us still have enough sense not to bow and scrape for people who openly spit in our faces.

    You know, you'd think that with Marvel making boatloads of cash every time they reprint the same damn issues in yet another new edition, they would realize that maybe people would also be willing to...

    Universal health care would be nice.
  13. Criminals aren't going to buy guns from a store,...

    Criminals aren't going to buy guns from a store, but they can easily get someone else with a clean rap sheet to do that for them. Also, more legal gun purchases means more guns that can be lost or...

    I like how the opening line of that paper you linked goes:



    I will honestly never understand this sick fascination that Westerners have for trying to dig up corpses everywhere they go in some...
  15. If they actually had lists of the names of people...

    If they actually had lists of the names of people who had died in communist famines, there wouldn't be such a huge margin of error for all of the numbers. Those calculations are all based on trying...

    You can always tell when you're reading actual Chinese government propaganda because it's always bizarre, confusing, and completely self-defeating. Because they have complete control over the media...

    No one seriously suggests that the iron rice bowl was somehow directly linked to the Great Leap Forward, and while Westerners fixate on the famine as if it's the only thing that happened during this...
  19. I think it should kind of go without saying that...

    I think it should kind of go without saying that causing tens of millions of people to starve was a bad thing. But the thing is, I wasn't even praising Mao in that post, ALL I was doing was pointing...

    I was just answering a question actually, though Mao is in no way some kind of Hitler equivalent no matter what the Victims of Communism Foundation wants you to think, and it's perfectly legitimate...

    Just google "iron rice bowl" and you'll find plenty of documentation on this. Under Mao, Chinese workers had guaranteed lifetime employment at state-owned enterprises and received generous benefits,...
  22. Yeah but instead of focusing on any of the actual...

    Yeah but instead of focusing on any of the actual bad things that China has done, you are fixated on made up bullshit that is mostly projection from the history of Western imperialism. It's not that...
  23. Is this really the hill you want to die on? ...

    Is this really the hill you want to die on? White people get blamed for everything and nobody ever points out the individual responsibility of the people being exploited!

    And just as a reminder,...

    I mean it is well known that one of the main policies of the reform and opening up process was loosening China's previously strict worker protections so as to better attract foreign capital,...

    History doesn't make for perfect analogies, so just pick some other island that was under American control at the time, that's not the important part.



    I mean the ROC stood for the old order,...
