This is just a rant but, I used to live in one of the socialist country and American made up lies about it which is completely untrue. They downplay a massacre and conduct smear campaign.

For real! My family in China is baffled when I talk to them about US news reporting about Chinese atrocities. People here don’t believe what my family says even though they, gasp, fucking live there

I live in China, talking to friends and family back home is like some fucking mental challenge, like a priest talking to a militant atheist.

Did they bomb your country? They bombed mine.(tho before I was born). Funny enough, this was done during our transition to Neo-Liberalism.

You can be proud of the fact that your country took on and completely humbled the most powerful and vicious empire in world history.

They also ignore the damage they did to a country to make it shit, while trying to “free it”. Just look at how Lebanon/Beirut is displayed in movies.

Though we made those fuckers leave with their tails between their legs. 241 US Marines killed in a single hit, the most devastating loss for them since WW2.

Or use the damage we did as proof of that country’s inferiority. Like how we’re always shitting on North Korea for being poorer than South Korea while never mentioning the genocide we committed against them.

Yeah, some of the smartest people in the west dedicate their lives to spreading these lies. They’re called social studies teachers.

i thought the “communism killed a trillion people” thing was a joke but then my history teacher unironically said mao killed 100 million people which is much larger than even the worst western estimates??? then again she’s shown herself to be a massive NATO shill and literally tried to push us into working for intelligence and be US “diplomats” so I shouldn’t be that surprised

Somewhat related, but I had a US history teacher in high school who I recall being openly disdainful towards socialism and even democracy. A few years after graduating I found out that he used to train FBI instructors at their training facility in the DC area before he came to teach at my school.

High School history teachers are actually so dogshit 99% of the time basically always NATO and imperialism shills. My year 11 modern history teacher did a unit on the “Arab-Israeli conflict” literally didn’t even use the name Palestine, and ofc the whole unit was basically just “terrorists, anti semitism, right of return” spent most of it learning about Zionism and how akchually it’s good, and there was maybe one single mention of “oh also there’s allegations of human rights abuses but dw about it”. that whole class was ass for the 2 years lol we spent half a year on the jfk assassination in an Australian school for some reason??? and there was a unit on the Russian revolution which basically got summed up as “tsar bad but Lenin also bad, me me big brain”

so yeah the US education system definitely isn’t the only one that’s complete shit
