New comic!

Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.

This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

virdant replied to your post: “virdant replied to your post:CHRIST i hate macleans this is just the…”:
i wonder if it’s “unsullied by capitalism” which would be hilarious b/c HK has had plenty of time to push for democracy and historically, has REFUSED to be a democratic country b/c of potential economic repercussions (when it was a british colony)
Britain was like: want to be democratic and not a colony and HK was like “no thx, economic repercussions probably wouldn’t be great for us” and HK is just so well known for being financially driven/motivated over ideology/democratic ideals
at the same time, a lot of the protesters are younger generation, but still, there was a great article i read that was discussion how the protests are not just ~democracy & freedom from china~ but also b/c HK does not have the same economic growth op
for the young generation and so they are protesting b/c they feel that if they are a free country, they can hopefully gain the opporutnity that HK had previously as a “western” country in an Eastern land.

AND THAT’S MY RAMBLE ON HK THAT’S ALL FOLKS. :3 sorry.

yeah it’s ridiculous they’re using union jack flags a symbol for democracy but i guess being spared the cultural revolution is one of the few things that could give a colony british nostalgia.

also like lol okay western writers who think “pure democracy” is some ideal to strive for, HK with free elections would undoubtedly have more political rights than under Beijing but they’d still be one of the most unequal societies in the world 

Disparities in Hong Kong abound, however. In comparison with China, already a country with high income inequality and ranked 27 in the world, Hong Kong has even higher inequality for distribution of family income. Hong Kong ranks No. 12 in the world behind Botswana, Haiti and Colombia. The U.S. is ranked 41

i dislike people who frame the HK protests as purely democracy driven because while that is a huge aspect of it it’s not the only factor it’s hugely economic opportunity driven as well.

absolutely agreed also i’d like someone to explain to me what the fuck “pure democracy” is or how democracy and economics are completely unrelated apparently

CHRIST i hate macleans this is just the worst garbage writing

We finally have an Occupy movement everyone can get behind. In contrast to Occupy Wall Street and similarly named protests that sprang up across North America in 2011 promoting a mind-boggling array of often contradictory social, political and economic causes, Hong Kong’s current Occupy Central campaign wants just one thing: real democracy.

literal trash writing how did a human being actually put that to paper jfc

Chinese volunteers arrive to defend Donbass People’s Republics
According to sources in the units of the Armed Forces of the Novorossia (NAF), volunteers from the Chinese People’s Republic are arriving to help defend Donbass. Pictured is an ex-People’s Liberation Army soldier and civil professional who took up arms for the defense of the Donets Basin from Nazi forces of the Kiev junta. 
The first volunteers have already arrived at the location of the militia units in Donetsk. A new batch of Chinese anti-fascists are expected to arrive soon in the Donbass. At the moment, the militia considers the possibility of deploying a Chinese brigade in one of the units NAF.

Pfft anti-fascists my arse
They’ll be off to fight along side their buddies the French far right nationalists and Polish fascists who share your respect for brutal capitalist oligarch Vladimir Putin, but none of your left wing pretentions. They are in good company, given that the Donbass Peoples Militia are led by Pavel Gubarev, “People’s Governor of the Donetsk People’s Republic” and former neo nazi paramilitary member.
What is it with you tankies and jumping into bed with fascists? Are there any depths your warped ideology won’t allow you to plumb?
There are quite clearly fascists on both sides of this conflict. What there aren’t, on any side, are communists. 

thank you. (my emphasis)

whodve thunk it

Military officials acknowledge that they are relying mainly on satellites, drones and surveillance flights to pinpoint targets, assess the damage afterward and determine whether civilians were killed.

That stands in sharp contrast to the networks of bases, spies and ground-based technology the U.S. had in place during the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, officials say.

As a result, “it’s much harder for us to be able to know for sure what it is we’re hitting, what it is we’re killing and what it is collateral damage,” said Tom Lynch, a retired colonel and former adviser to the Joint Chiefs of Staff who is now a fellow at the National Defense University.

In Hillary Clinton’s book, she admits her role in supporting the aftermath of the undemocratic 2009 coup in Honduras; a coup that was condemned by the UN, the EU, and the OAS.
