A common sentiment on the far left now is that America is essentially evil and everything is horrifically wrong with it.

When America is founded on the genocide of indigenous people, slavery of an entire race, fought a civil war for the right to keep slaves, introduced segregation laws by race after said Civil war, got so invested into Eugenics that Hitler himself admitted to being inspired by America's efforts, ruthlessly clamped down on such that minorities that the Stonewall riots became a thing and Martin Luther King was assassinated and perpetrated coups in Southern America to create loyal puppet states —

Yeah, maybe actually consider the absurd notion that America has a history full of evil deeds.

Is it bad I'm more patriotic to my state than my nation?

I doubt you'd find an American on here more in love with his state than me.

Yeha Virginia was part of the South and was the capital of the Confederation. I believe it was Richmond, Virginia.

Also West Virginia was a buffer zone.

How did homophobic and anti-abortion Poland ever end up in the EU?

Was it to avoid being annexed by Russia?


A series of good faith agreements that transpired before the 2010 Smolensk Air Disaster which effectively killed the entirety of the Polish government in a fraction of a second, rendering them into meat jelly through the instant application of a thousand G's upon their body. Prior to which Poland was developing as a fairly moderate left-of-center European democracy. But the instant annihilation of "all the adults in the room" as co-host of Well There's Your Problem co-host Alice Caldwell-Kelly pit it accelerated Poland's lurch to demagogic conservative reaction.

There was a very bright moment after where everything seemed to be turning around, when Polish society seemed willing to bury the hatchet over the Katyn Massacre and the Russian government was fully admitting Russian participation. But Poland was primed overnight to blow a spring early and it blew a whole gasket.

If you want to hear the WTYP line summarizing what happened, then here is the episode on the Polish 9/11 they did.

A student in Virginia recited the Pledge of Allegiance during her graduation ceremony, but stated "Under Allah" instead of "Under God". Uh, weird flex but okay.

As expected right wing media is flipping out over the acknowledgement of anything but Christianity. Ordinarily snowflakes snowflaking isn't news, but Newsmax taking it to a whole other level is notable.

Top moments include a conspiracy of how Biden is responsible for this, one of the hosts claiming to have served in the military and he's so offended that this student would desecrate the Pledge I guess this uber patriot was unaware about the "Freedom of Religion" part of the 1st Amendment he was defending, and demands of punishment be made — up to and including revoking her diploma, criminal prosecution, and forced conscription (no, really).

For the record Newsmax has spent the last 5 months apologizing and gaslighting for Y'all Qaeda's Jan 6 insurrection. Strange the things that get their Patriotism TM riled up and the things that don't.

Because Germany wanted Poland back after losing it after WW1, and succeeded in getting it back with neoliberalism and geopolitical realities instead of troops, anti-communism, and anti-semitism.

Also, why did we have two massive wars to prevent Germany from dominating Europe if they ended up dominating Europe anyway?

@Dustcan

Reminds me of this:



Seriously though, Allah is Arabic for "god," and since Islam is an abrahamic- Y’know what? Why am I even surprised anymore about such idiotic controversies?

Huh, you agreeing with me? That's rare.

And the USA can still provide for Norway's security while being internally socialist.


@Ebalosus
Well, the first was more about a big mess of alliances, and the second had something to do with Nazis I think.
