"The United States has been a source for great evil and great good. It’s one of the more complex imperialist nations, but too many Americans dismiss this complexity and instead embrace fairy tale, cherry tree-laden narratives of American exceptionalism. Of course, Kevin McCarthy is far too simple for actual US history."

What an utter cess pit the #Canadian #nationalPost is...

Not once does this buffoon mention the god demanded genocides, the infant slaughters, rape, slavery (sexual and chattel) and animal (possibly human if some #bible scholars are right) sacrifice in the Tanakh or the terrorist actions by #zionists that ONLY stopped because they achieved their objective.

What utter garbage hourly fills the putrid minds of the world's right-wing.

So, according to the #Conservatives the Parthenon sculptures "belong" in the UK. That is a very odd use of the word "belong". And #Sunak does not even have the guts to meet Mitsotakis in person. What a coward. And #Starmer will not consider returning them either. I know this applies in so many other areas, but are we supposed to be having a *choice* in the next General Election?

It seems to me that the sexual respectability of male #conservatives has declined.

The "patriarchy is good, stay barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen" thing was always an issue. But "good provider, has a kitchen" flies with that flock of memes; it's a known deal-closer.

Not that anger was ever rare in conservatism, but #MAGA levels of foaming rage toward "the other" poses new problems for the #rightwing Lothario. Rage and the habits of disrespect are dangerous to #women, and they know it.

Maybe Arabs and Jews should get together and fight the real enemies.

My other tip is for to prepare yourselves for a barrage of claims from the #LibDems that they alone can win the seat from the #conservatives . This you will find both inescapable and singularly tiresome to judge by my own experience in #putney in the #UKGeneralElection2019 - the one seat #labour did manage to take from the #conservatives on that occasion!

@ThomHartmann THIS outcome focused article is an excellent summary of why no one should ever vote conservative. Never ever. No amount of 'what aboutism' or 'both siding' can change that.

🚨Tories in Death Spiral🚨

The Autumn Statement has failed to spark a Tory revival with a new poll suggesting they've actually lost even more support!

The party lost one point, going down to 21% while #Labour remained at 46%.

Even more concerning, pensioners aged 64 & over now support Labour by 40% to 27% Tory!

The poll came before record #Immigration figures. Tory MPs are debating whether to launch a confidence vote in Rishi Sunak. 😳

@DavidBruchmann

In 2010, the #EU or #Immigration didn't even come into the top 10 issues of voter concern in the UK.

However, the far right populist politician Nigel Farage managed to bribe the #Conservatives that his party wouldn't run against their coalition government in the 2015 election if they promised an EU referendum.

Within 6 years he managed to convince 52% of the #UK to leave the EU citing a migrant invasion into Britain because of the EU's freedom of movement, & he succeeded. 😳

Meanwhile, in #Canada. #LiberalParty MP Mark Gerretson posted a video showing every #ConservativeParty member voting against support for #Ukraine in lockstep. Just like the #GOP in the #USA.

#Conservatives shouldn't kid themselves. #Russia is not really your friend, and just because #LiberalParty members or #Democrats support a policy, knee-jerking in opposition isn't always the best choice.

#Russians will backstab western conservatives at the first chance. This is suicidal.

@pluralistic You wrote: "Progressives: if you want to lose to conservatives…".

Well, duh, #progressives DO want to lose #conservatives, as they set up litmus tests to determine who is friend and who is foe. Progressives sit in their bubble and congratulate each other on how capitalism must be overthrown, and come up with new litmus tests:

"We must redefine the word 'up' so as not to disenfranchise horizontal people who are bedridden. Or did we already redefine the word 'bedridden'?"

I can't help but to think that we are talking about two completely different things using the same words. The failure she is talking about is the failure of the #conservatives to destroy social security, eliminate health care and jail mothers and LGBTQ and rule everyone.
We view the failure of conservatives to represent the people, to work for responsible to programs that can better educate people, lead to lower health care and a cleaner environment as the failure to win anything.

Societies that force people to not be themselves are illegitimate and evil. Period.

And too many "good" religious folk accept and thrive in such societies.

Company gives £2m to Tories.

Buzzfeed finds evidence of potential corruption in the company's operations.

The UK authorities refuse to investigate but the buzzfeed evidence is pursued by the French and CEO and other executives are jailed.

This is as blatant a prima facie case of institutional corruption as you are likely to come across in our debased Tory Britain.

For the most part, I do consider the vast majority of American conservatives to be belligerently misguided and deceived. They seem more likely to speak parrot "talking points" rather than to have original thought and a reasonable skepticism of media they consume.

Critical, rational skepticism is the bread of life along with love and charitable kindness. Without that bread, delusions abound. #conservatives
