I downvote the Chinese propaganda spam. Also the poorly written opinion pieces with unsourced claims or tabloid articles.

Please downvote all the Western propaganda too, in that case, especially any political articles by them regarding countries that are outside and rivals of Anglosphere.

There’s no way to make a meme against a group or in support of an ideology without stripping away all the nuance and dehumanizing people. Many of the articles that are posted here are misleading and in some cases entirely untrue.

Yesterday, I down voted an article claiming “AP confirms no Uyghur genocide”. I read the cited AP article and found the post’s click bait title was completely false. The post’s author is pointing at a report that contradicts his beliefs and claiming that his beliefs are therefore correct because the article is lieing. It is fine to refute an article, but to twist an article’s words and then claim that the source says something it clearly doesn’t is just dishonest.

I believe misleading and dehumanizing posts should be downvoted in order to promote a space where diverse peoples can all feel welcome.

What is your opinion on the McCarthyism and dehumanisation of Western media outlets regarding China and COVID? Is that fair? Also do you not find it contradicting that USA delisted East Turkestan Islamic Movement (with strong Al Qaeda links) from terrorist organisation list before Trump’s term was over, and has admitted that it has funded all these Uyghur separatist mouthpieces since 2004?

Also, would you like to debate about the so called Uyghur genocide with an informed Indian?

Waiting for the Sinophobes and anti socialists to downvote me to oblivion instead of debating me… 5 minutes 1 downvote

My comment is only specifically critical of that one post on Lemmy, I did not indicate support or condemnation of China or the west. You’re reading between the lines and tilting at windmills my friend.

I down voted an article claiming “AP confirms no Uyghur genocide”

I am reading your lines and calling out specifically that. There are no metaphorical windmills here, only the McCarthyism getting an iron grip on you, as Western propaganda shapes global public opinion funded by the Military Industrial Complex contractors that directly benefit from warmongering and weapon selling.

Edit: I find the downvote comical. I also find it very comical that all the “Chinese propaganda” accusers go back to hiding in their caves after dog whistling, and avoid fact based intellectual debating. Western boogeyman brainwashing psyops works really well on all of these ideal model citizens of Western dystopia.

You’re missing the point. The misinformation was that the AP didn’t make that claim. It was not about whether the claim was true or not.

And? There is no genocide going on. But if US funded extremists were allowed to have their way, a cultural and physical genocide will actually happen.

They may not be downvoting the actual leftist content of the article or meme, but something else, especially the plethora unrelated subjects that have been tied to leftist ideologies.

I don’t downvote Leftists posts, i am in the center and I’m very progressive. If i weren’t, i would be on fucking gab (i hate that shit). I really don’t like people defending dictatorships, something i know very well since i live in Venezuela. Also accept that China is a cyberpunk dystopia with serious human rights violations and is creating a system that makes impossible for a revolution to rise. I’ve been told that money in Venezuela didn’t matter, that is a “socialist utopia” has also been told that Venezuela is not socialism, and that is stupid to call Venezuela a poor country (i literally just need to walk outside my home to prove then wrong). These are interactions i had on Lemmy alone. Now imagine how much shit i got on Reddit.

English speaking leftist are always like “Oh, i don’t care about your first hand experience, this book i bought on Amazon says otherwise”

Some people need to chill and start recognizing propaganda when they see it.

Whether or not Venezuela is socialist, whats more important is that it has been under illegal sanctions from the US for decades. No country can prosper in that situation.

Because it is a private, federated alternative to reddit. Plus, most of the ‘leftist’ shit here is just Chinese propaganda.

It is pretty evident that Western neoliberals have invaded Lemmy. Sad. The cancer just spreads everywhere because of their sheer numbers and the low intellectual barrier.

Well, neoliberals are not exactly leftists, but warmongerers and capitalists, which is quite antithetical to the true socialist left. Liberals are left only to the right wingers, just like centre-right is treated as communism in USA.

Someone who supports the Chinese government or other brutal state capitalistic states under the guize of ‘communism’. I am also defiantly not a capitalist lol. Just a anarchist.

In that case, you are just another internet anarchist who still lives under the framework of Western fantasy world where the white Anglo man is the master race, and where you live with all the crappy cope Western MSM feeds you daily subconsciously.

Get out of the Anglo fascist dream, my sweet child. The world is slightly different, and getting out of their hands for ever, thankfully.

I don’t reed the news lol. I only ever really go online to read and talk about Linux and technology. Every single government, including China and the USA are all run by fascists and useful idiots. I oppose Capitalism, much like I oppose the ruthless state capitalism that is prevalent in China.

@TheAnonymouseJoker

I really suggest you avoid talking about China and what goes on in there, since all you are ending up as is a “useful idiot” for USA foreign policy and their Cold War 2.0 against China. Neither is the government there fascist (spoiler: it is ML communist), nor is it state capitalism but a market based socialist economy.

In China the government owns the means of production, not the people collectively. It is state capitalist. Not fascist? Remember the Tienanmen Square Massacre?
