"https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-56963996":Backlash after China Weibo post mocks India Covid crisis

Official Chinese government account posted an image comparing the fires of China's latest rocket booster going to space, and the fires of open air cremations in India due to the overflow of deaths from covid-19 ("Lighting a fire in China VS lighting a fire in India.").

Image shows dead bodies so I'd rather not hotlink.


This should come as no surprise; nationalists don't see people of other nations as really being people, particularly when they're also of other races, so their deaths are more useful as political props than as something to care about.

PragerU targeting kindergarteners



Dear god, this is alarming… We had thought that all we had to do was wait for the bigots to die out, that right-winged philosophy was an outdated mindset that dominated only older generations…but honestly, I always knew of the possibility of such an ideology to be passed on to younger generations, and this just confirms it…

And I lay the blame on Gamergate. Gamergate really radicalized younger people into joining the right. I wish Gamergate never fuckin' happened…

That seems perfectly healthy and normal. I can't see anything scary or wrong here. Kids are taught America and american values is something special is now a bad thing?

Gamergate happened because the left pushed too far into places it should never have gone. You let sjws set the agenda that's what you get, everything becomes political.

Possibly. I see it more as shitbag IP lobbies being the shitbag rent-seekers that they are. Any major IP reform, or even the threat of IP reform leads to them screaming to Washington that any changes that may benefit the common person will "irrevocably damage their industry and put 80 million Americans out of work!"

I see it come up a lot in right-to-repair efforts, something near and dear to me (I’m an independent Apple technician), and a lot of the same BS is thrown around against it, with the last refuge (of the IP scoundrels) being "we don’t care about first-sale doctrine, it’s our product and our IP-protected work so you can’t do anything we don’t approve of!"

I just can't trust PragerU in general. It's like asking a known scam artist to manage a newbie's money. Sure the scam artist would have enough business-finance know-how to teach a complete newbie the basics, but what if they're just grooming the newbie's account info something the scam artist can exploit?

Scummy move, really. Calling themselves a University so impressionable ppl be like "oh it's a university so it's all smart people and official and stuff" like QUIT IT.

That's a grifter move! That's a GURU move.

Tell that to Kielbasa who thinks it's "perfectly healthy and normal". It's bad enough they con college-aged kids into thinking it's a legit educational institution, but fuckin' 5-year-olds? They're literally scamming little kids!

Especially coming from the guy who never misses an opportunity to criticize "woke indoctrination" at every turn.
Right-winger propagandists literally attempting to indoctrinate children? Doesn't bat an eye. Shows how far he's gone.

@Ereiam
To be fair to him, he's only saying "look at the message, not the messenger" because that would make PragerU's shadiness irrelevant to the discussion.

Which why his point still stands: there wasnt anything particularly too alarming in PragerU's videos for kids. The message was good and it aint doing no harm.

But we all kinda say that initially to ppl who eventually get caught grooming kids, don't we?

That channel is progressive and Prager is conservative. Nothing Prager says in there is wrong imo. The parts about boys and schools for instance. It's like a conservative Southern Poverty Law center of sorts. Countering hyper progressivism is a good thing.

@KikkoMan
Maybe they should change the name then. Again nothing I see here seems to be far right or extreme. Very standard traditional conservatives no?

Fun fact, we already do this.

A lot of surveillance ops and tech is ran by, and through, govie contractors. With a lot of the scalped data ending up in the hands of the private sector for various reasons.

In fact, a lot of what the government does is done through 3rd party contractors.

I once sat through a 5 minute PragerU ad (for a 50 second long Minecraft vid, mind) where they swore up and down that America is not a racist country and it's just the woke culture lying to you. Their evidence? The standard canned crap about how "We fought a war to end slavery!" We also fought a war to keep slavery. or "We elected a black man president!" and, just talking about the presidency alone since that's the only qualifier determining racism apparently, the response to that was one of our two political parties going off the deep end, trading their racist dogwhistles for racist bullhorns, and then electing Donald Trump right after., etc.

Everything Prager says is wrong. It's entire shtick is to gaslight in service of the status quo.

Reminder, when someone say PregarU is “quoting facts”, just laugh at them and remind them how stupid they are. Cause PregarU keeps lying about things that these clowns have no idea what they're talking about.

You know what's funny? Every time you see some Right Wing Pundits on Twitter say “STOP CRITICAL RACE THEORY AND DEFEND WESTERN CIVILIZATION”, completely unaware that the “Western Civilization” is just the big shopping, which is the United States.

I watched some videos there. It seems like very standard republican/conservative values. Nothing insane that makes people into nazis. (Unless you consider people like Ben Shapiro to be that.) What you are repeating here is the leftys loopy loops they have made to make you think everything is wrong :)
