Something that constantly reaffirms itself with me is that the body count of dead nazis and their sympathisers is far below what it should be, both war-era and the contemporary manifestations.

They vote this way because it’s a nation of soulless, immoral sociopaths who worship money and believe every conceivable human action or exchange should have a price tag attached.

“They pick the lock, they dump the whole can on the street and then as the sort through the things they want while the garbage is either on the sidewalk or out on the street,” said Public Works Acting Director Alaric Degrafinried.

Yo Alaric, just thinking out loud here but it’s almost as if material conditions for many under capitalism are so bad that they feel compelled to go digging through the rubbish of others in hope of finding food or sellable goods.

I’ve personally witnessed two rental properties in my area, each managed by different companies and each “owned” by different absentee parasites, jack their monthly rent up by $50 each over the summer. And this is nothing; I’ve read anecdotes of $100+ monthly increases at time of lease renewal in other cities, especially common when a property is transferred to a new owner (assuming the tenants don’t simply get an eviction order).

Housing conglomerates seem to collude with each other, maintaining rent demands at roughly equivalent levels to ensure nobody gets too good of a deal in their area (the “market rate”). They keep watch on an area’s median wages and incomes, ensuring 25-50% of everything the tenants make through endless toil goes directly to their coffers and whatever meager crumbs get tossed to the working class from the political oligarchy over the years are quickly snatched up as well.

Among the lowest paid workers it’s also possible, due to decades of stagnant wages and uncontrolled rent increases in all directions as properties are steadily bought up and consolidated over time, that someone could be trapped in their current housing as prices of everything increase around them to the point that their income no longer passes the 3x or 4x income-to-rent ratio check, effectively making them immobile.

In my observed case, to absorb a $50 rent hike while also accounting for income taxes, the tenant would need an immediate roughly $.50/hour wage increase. Good fucking luck negotiating literally any kind of raise for any reason with your masters.

It’s been said his account could’ve been banned at multiple points in the last few years since it literally violated Twitter terms of use on many occasions. Wish it would’ve happened, then maybe he could’ve fucked off to Gab or Parler or some other right-wing garbage dump where his bullshit belonged.

Yea it looks like just another troll, I believe it has happened before for a bit until the miserable fuck gets bored or found and banned. Definitely more noticeable here because of the small userbase and lower post activity (compared to chapo.chat or the old reddit forums).

I’m also less than thrilled over the recent federation with lemmy.ml and the obnoxious liberal and blatant trolling/reactionary shit some of those users have spewed into lemmygrad crossposts. I’d think the recent streak of downvoting here to be from one of them considering the variety of insufferable centrist, anti-communist, and radlib sentiments I’ve seen expressed there.

This is the best caricature of the hysterical racist Westerner hatemobs on that trashfire site that I’ve seen yet, like a page from reddit.txt was taken and updated for 2020. Even the wildly exaggerated numbers are not looking too far off after seeing some of the topics created this past year.

The actual tragedy being that the communists didn’t have necromancers to raise these assholes from the dead so they could be shot again.

Everything in this video is absolute truth as is the eye-catching title, by definition. Word is that this video was partly censored by Google in that it won’t show in search results or recommendations, you would need to be on Second Thought’s channel or directly linked to see it.

America is a fucking shitshow.
