These are all actual opinion pieces that The New York Times published:
And to think that most Americans insist that they’re not brainwashed and that the media they consume isn’t propaganda…
Words can’t express how much I hate the US. As a kid growing up here, I was told over and over again that the @nytimes was the “paper of record” and that it published cutting-edge journalism. I was lied to. The NYT runs these bloodthirsty screeds at the behest of the US empire.

Today, August 19, marks the 68th anniversary of the US/UK coup that overthrew the democratically-elected leader of Iran, Mohammad Mosaddegh. His crime? Nationalizing Iran’s oil, which was previously controlled by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, now known as British Petroleum.
Mosaddegh was put on trial for treason. During his defense, he proclaimed:

“Yes, my sin—my greater sin and even my greatest sin is that I nationalized Iran's oil industry and discarded the system of political and economic exploitation by the world's greatest empire.”
Mosaddegh was ultimately sentenced to three years in solitary confinement in a military prison. After his release, he spent the rest of his life under house arrest. Mosaddegh died in 1967.

Several people have reportedly been shot dead by US troops at the Kabul airport as Afghans continue to try to leave their homeland.
Looking to confirm these reports. Absolute chaos at the airport in Kabul right now as crowds of Afghan civilians attempt to flee. Devastating scene.
A number of reports have stated that US troops have opened fire on the crowd attempting to flee. Several others are reporting that there’s a heavy Taliban presence around the airport. Looking to clarify. Horrifying.

(1/X) I’m really shaken up right now. I was just visited by two plainclothes police officers from California Highway Patrol at my home. They said they came here on behalf of the Capitol Police and accused me of threatening @AOC on Twitter yesterday. This is provably false.
(2/X) I assume this is the tweet they are talking about, where I lightly criticized @AOC for a disappointing answer in response to a question about Palestine/Israel.
(3/X) This is completely outrageous. I was visited by two police at my home over a harmless tweet about @AOC. I felt scared, intimidated, and violated. They knew my name and where I live. It was done on behalf of a congresswoman who advocates against police state tactics.

Really grateful for the work @NoColdWar is doing to push back against US aggression towards China. @vijayprashad led a great discussion with a number of brilliant guests from around the world.

Definitely recommend giving this a listen:
Margaret Kimberley:

“It helps to remind people that they’ve been lied to about other things because if people hear over and over and over again ‘Uyghurs in concentration camps,’ they assume that it’s true...Do you remember all of those things that turned out not to be true?”
Ollie Vargas:

“The China model is an inspiration for countries around the world. China is not a country that seeks to impose its model around the world. It doesn’t seek to invade countries, to promote coups, or to install puppets around the world.”

As liberals line up to lionize RBG, don’t forget about this: Image
I don’t feel bad that I’m not mourning a racist fucking Supreme Court justice.
Also, all of you who say “BLM” and then act like RBG wasn’t racist...y’all disgust me.

A thread of stupid Zionist talking points to push back against today and every day:
"Hamas is a terrorist group."

Hamas is a political party. Under international law, Palestinians have the right to resist their Israeli occupiers by any means necessary.
"Anti-Zionism is anti-semitism."

To be anti-Zionist is to be opposed to the racist, settler colonial ideology of Zionism. This is not the same thing as being against Judaism.
