...how am I not surprised.

r/hapas is a breeding ground for a potent combination of far left and far right insanity. Why are those people so incredibly insane?

In light of the leaked audio, this comes off as even more deluded and pathetic.

No Marxist should shy away from defending the Right of Socialist Countries to exist.

No matter how hard the Corporate Media and Western Governments try to undermine the DPRK, the fact remains that this little Socialist Nation has managed to defend itself against US invasion, exclusion from Global Trade, Sanctions and Military provocations, and yet is still there, building Socialism independently.

Traditional Korean culture is obviously very different from anything we might easily understand in the West. And certainly Socialism in the DPRK has taken its own peculiar path and form.

But if we are to ever have a successful International Socialist Movement, and have Unity, part of that has to be a nuanced view of the DPRK, along with support for their Right to Exist and their Right to develop Socialism in their own way as determined by the Korean people.

That doesn’t mean never allowing the DPRK to be critiqued, we all must be willing to accept criticism and give criticism in good faith. But denying the contributions to Socialism by the DPRK only plays into the hands of the Imperialists and justifies their Military aggression towards the DPRK, their unprovoked Sanctions going back decades before their development of a Nuclear weapons capability, and it ignores the entire history of non-stop interference and aggression towards the affairs of the DRPK and the Korean people.

Colonialism is alive and well. One only needs look at the History of the Korean peninsula to begin to understand why the DPRK has taken the route it has, and many other peculiarities are simply cultural differences that do not excuse people for supporting Imperialist aggression against their Right to Exist and build Socialism based on the Juche idea.

Solidarity to the DPRK and the peoples of the Korean Peninsula

The only thing worse than right-wingers conflating socialism and communism is left-wingers conflating them.
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

North Korea isn't really a socialist state anyway it is rather closer to an absolute hereditary monarchy.

Oh? Do tell.



Surprisingly, according to my research, the claim about the maximum sentence being ten years is actually true... but only on a technicality. The USSR really did abolish sentences longer than ten years after Lenin's death. However, sentences were often arbitrarily extended, as in the case of Maria Tchebotareva. And longer sentences were reintroduced during the Great Purge.

As for the claim about capital punishment, it's even more questionable. Under Stalin's regime, owning too much private property and dissenting from the regime were considered "heinous, serious crimes".



...I think I found the tankie equivalent of "Auschwitz had a swimming pool".

Rather ironic that an LGBT group is being Stalin apologists, since his regime recriminalized homosexuality. They'd have been severely punished for "muzhelozhstvo" under his rule.

Attached screencaps are possibly one of the most evil things I've seen happen on twitter.

click on the images if you haven't already. a self-proclaimed "feminist" against Bernie Sanders used a rape victims story to shit on "bernie bros" as a political weapon because the rapist was a Bernie fan. She totally left out and spoke over the victim who is also a Sanders supporter. Then the piece of shit denied it and doubled down and continued ignore the victims actual words literally said to her.

"This could literally save the world, but it doesn't help me push my politics, so I don't want it used!"

And how is the climate crisis not just about the environment? Your claim that it isn't feels like you admitting you're just using environmentalism as a means to promote the causes you really care about.

Why is it that I have this feeling that, if folks like him were back around 2,000 years ago, they'd die of starvation?  Then again, it is a genius plan, if ya think about it.  You can't have oppression if there isn't anyone alive to oppress or be oppressed.

This totally doesn't show out of context but he was actually not making an argument against nuclear power. (see e.g. this tweet in reply. He is trying to showcase what he thinks is the pattern of thinking that ends up in lots of anti-climate-change people still opposing nuclear power.

(not a defence or whatever. I don't think he's engaging in good faith with the argument, it's just annoying seeing it getting misread out of context)

Should've known. This is pretty embarrassing.

Well, with that context provided, I have to agree that it really seems like he's assuming bad faith. OTOH, I can understand where he's coming from.
