I like how immigrants are said to be lazy drains on society and simultaneously so hardworking that they’ll steal all jobs
A man on Reddit posted an image of their Holocaust survivor grandfather: their tattoos, and their meeting with a fellow survivor. 94% of people have upvoted it, but some weren’t happy. Why is this? SEE IF YOU CAN GUESS WHY:
Like, that’s the thesis of Dinesh D’Souza’s new film, apparently. That Obama is not enough in favor of colonialism, and that’s un-American
Since if there’s anything that defines America’s founders, it’s their love of English colonialism and acceptance of the British Empire
They find a relative of Obama who says Kenya wasn’t ready for independence and more years of British rule would’ve left Kenya more prepared for independence, so colonialism is good
Here is my impression of how that would’ve panned out, if colonialism had continued until African and other countries were “ready”
"Hey, I know you want independence, but you aren’t developed enough yet. But you will be if you give us ten years!”
"We don’t remember promising you that. Besides, you aren’t developed enough yet and we’ve just discovered all those natural resources. Let’s talk about independence again in ten years."
"Sorry for redrawing your borders and accidentally including that ethnic group your majority population has traditionally had tense relations with. It’s really destabilized your country’s development so you can’t meet our goals, I think we need ten more years…"
"What a undeveloped, conflict-ridden shithole! You’re on your own. I can’t believe you let this happen to your country, despite all our help! Gah, can’t you be thankful for our colonialism?"
The idea that you need “balance” for everything is such horseshit
It makes sense for opinions with two equal sides but then it started to be applied to things with broad consensus or arguments where one side is objectively true
You may think it’s impossible to tell the difference, but there’s a difference between a social issue like “is the death penalty right” and one like “are vaccines safe”. You can cite evidence or make arguments for either side of the former, but every single bit of evidence points to one side in the latter case.
You could probably find qualified experts or authorities to argue on any side of debates on foreign policy, but a debate on evolution’s veracity would pit scientists against people with no actual knowledge of that field. They aren’t equal sides here
It’s really not hard to tell when there’s no balance to be had with a issue
