If anyone wants to talk abt “society wide science experiment”, it’s most applicable to the government officials justifying their inaction by saying “it’s gonna spread to everyone oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”
Now more hospitalizations than at any other point in the pandemic
Current conspiracy theory: putin & biden negotiated that biden would drop the tactical tummyache syndrome narrative in exchange for……something
tbh it is kinda a surprise that this psy-op was such a failure they had to just abandon it. the threads of the superstructure beginning to snap and fray, the contradictions growing like tumors in the flesh of the weltgeist
Lmao remember when they impeached trump
The time between a meme being first introduced to an environment & the first organic mutation is known as the “incubation period”
I know it’s been beaten to death by the online left, but “[they’re] electable if you fucking vote for [them]” is such a succinct takedown of the US liberal view of voting

Not a good sign
Del Re [“EU Special Representative for the Sahel”] praised sanctions targeting Mali adopted earlier this week by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the EU, describing them as coherent and consequential, and called on the international community to maintain the pressure on the interim government. […]
Thousands of supporters of Mali’s military government took to the streets Friday in the capital, Bamako, railing against the ECOWAS sanctions as unjust. […]
Many of the protesters praised the military government for standing up to France, while others waived Malian flags and some even waived Russian flags. […]
According to the Africa Center for Strategic Studies [“a U.S. Department of Defense institution established and funded by Congress”], Mali’s military government has committed to paying Wagner $11 million per month – $132 million a year – for the services of 1,000 mercenaries, an amount equal to more than 20% of Mali’s yearly defense expenditures.
Mali’s government has denied reports it is using Russian mercenaries, but the move appears to be having an impact on other international forces sent to the country to help fight against terrorists linked to Islamic State and al-Qaida. […]
Sweden’s foreign minister said Friday that her country will withdraw from the Takuba Task Force, a European special forces mission to Mali, and that it may withdraw a couple hundred troops serving in Mali under the United Nations. […]
“The countries of the region, the countries of the G-5, for instance, they fear that this could be an example that might somehow give the idea of copying the situation to other countries.”
Despite these complications, Del Re and other European officials insist they have no intention of abandoning [sic] Mali or its neighbors in the Sahel.

If I remember correctly (and I fucking do) so many red-hats refused to vaccinate that the virus continued to spread and mutate. Biden’s mistake was thinking assholes would actually take the vaccine when it was available and not keep killing people. At the time not having to wear masks made sense. Anti-vax idiots subsequently made this post obsolete.
Misinformation my ass. Thank you for your input, China state-affiliated media. Now fuck off.
Idealists:“if the US didn’t prop up Israel and it still managed to exist in the region despite US opposition, would you support it?”
actual concrete material reality:
I can’t be me, you’re me
