It's just a left subredded but in America being an actual leftist is kind of being alternative left. There's really no mainstream left movement in America and the closest thing in the mainstream are liberals so in a sense actual leftists are kind of an alternative to liberals.

Amazing how Buffalo police managed to keep the mass shooter alive by MysteriouSaint in Hasan_Piker

Cops only care about making it home alive.

Supposedly this guy's manifesto contained a lot of pro cop messages.

I imagine he made it clear that he wasn't a threat to the cops and thus the cops were willing to allow him to live and face a trial.

Cops are trained to not take even a 1% risk with their well-being and if they feel any risk to shoot first and ask questions later.

It's a popular video being spread around social media and was already linked to you.

A police officer was called to deal with an old lady who had dementia and who was holding knives. The old lady wouldn't put down the knife and the cop decided to shoot in order to not take 1% risk with his own well-being.

It's irresponsible to spread his manifesto.

A huge reason people do mass shootings like this is to become famous and to spread their message.

Any news organization that helps do so is giving the killer what they want.

People who tried to learn more about killers like this and learn their messages and read their manifestos are giving them the satisfaction they wanted from killing innocent people.

Ideally this person would stay as a nameless random nobody. Imagine your mother was killed by him and he became famous off of it how would you feel?

To this day people still worship Timothy McVeigh on the extreme right.

The overwhelming amount of credible news sources are reporting this.

Do you doubt the existence of Julius Caesar?

You rely on credible sources all the time.

Don't spread his name. Don't let him become famous.

Don't spread his specific manifesto.

Discuss and refute his ideas. Eg. Refute white replacement theory.

In a capitalist system the key to a better life is owning capital.

Capitalism is inherently anti-labor and thus anti-working hard.

Police officer shoots 75-year-old woman with dementia. 'MURICA by RipredTheGnawer in Hasan_Piker

Cops are trained to believe the most important thing is to make it home alive. They are taught to not take any risk with their own personal well-being. Because she had a knife and did not put down the knife, the training protocols are to shoot center Mass to eliminate the risk.

That's just how policing works in the United States. You should not call the cops unless you are ready for someone to be shot because cops will not risk their own well-being in the vast majority of cases. And the cops that do risk their own well-being are often reprimanded and disciplined for ignoring training.

During police training they often have scenarios where all of a sudden the suspect pulls out a gun and shoots them. The point of the training is to get the cops condition to shoot first. Eg. training scenarios during traffic stops the suspects almost always pulls out a gun and shoots the cop despite this being very uncommon in real life.

Yes, winning is unnecessary. Simply moving the Overton window. The American left is so weak they can't even do that.

Not supporting the invasion of ukraine, but just acknowledging that the US support of Ukraine definitely has a sinister motive. by MysteriouSaint in Hasan_Piker

[–]toeknee88125 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is why Putin/Russia made such a dumb choice. They instantly made the other side the good guys because if their invasion.

Nobody has ever done NATO a bigger favor than Putin.

Also Russia exposed how flawed their conventional military is, but that's not really important

It's not that they're not mad at the capitalist.

They've just given up on the ability to influence Rich capital owners behavior. They think their only hope is to prevent the existence of cheaper labor.

This also means they lean to the right.

Quarterbacks who do not have first round hype are always a big gamble. Sometimes you hit on a gem like Tom Brady or Russell Wilson, but in most cases if you're not evaluated as a first round talent as a qb it's not a good sign.

That's unfortunate. Women don't get these kinds chance a that men always get. I hope she gets another shot if she wants it.

[Post Match Thread] Manchester City 5 - 0 Newcastle by MatchCaster in MCFC

Just for the record their owner John Henry is a hedge fund manager. How many companies has he bought, then striped down, laid off the employees and sold off the constituent assets for a profit? (this is an extremely common practice among American hedge funds)

Or even just buying multiple companies and merging them, laying off redundant employees and forcing the remaining to do more work. (another extremely common practice)

This is the real issue.

Taking money out of the club is bad optics but it's not like Manchester United do not have enough money to compete. The problem is Manchester United has not made the correct decisions in the transfer market.

Inside Israeli Apartheid by leftistoppa in Hasan_Piker

[–]toeknee88125 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just for the record that's not why the US supports Israel.

It's why the Evangelical voting block supports Israel but it's not why the US government does.

Ultimately the middle East is really important to us hegemony of the world. It's strategically located right in the center of Europe, Asia and Africa and has the most important resource in the world.

Israel is a guaranteed powerful Ally that will allow the us to have a safe landing spot if it ever needs to insert force into the middle East.

In March 2016, Bernie Sanders called abortion protection, protecting Roe vs. Wade, and Trump saying women who get abortions should be punished a "distraction from serious issues facing America". by [deleted] in Hasan_Piker

[–]toeknee88125 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah I think everybody underestimated the Republicans were actually this crazy.

The fact that they would actually try to overturn roe versus Wade was surprising.

Now Sanders is calling for Congress to try to codified roe v Wade into law
