The Western capitalist world admitting that China and Russia might cure cancer and heart problems without their intellectual property monopolism.
Bill Gates - "We can't share vaccines with the Global Poor" The Westest of the West. https://t.co/ds0927karA?amp=1
US FINALLY shamed into backing vaccine waivers, & their pharma megacorp shares plummet. If it wasn't for China and Russia & other counter-hegemon embarrassing the West by waiving IP rights early & getting vaccines to poorer countries, US would've kept letting millions die of covid in Global South for CEO billions.
"The Chinese woman broke up Bill Gates' marriage"
Nah, Bill's a piece of evil racist capitalist billionaire garbage who is terrible at designing schools, 'leading world health', and unsurprisingly, relationships. Nice job jumping into the Sinophobia bandwagon and manufacturing more anti-Asian racist violence, imperialism and for-profit war, though.
Westerners & European imperialists still in heavy denial: China lost tens of millions of people fighting fascism in World War II. The Soviet Union lost 27 million. The US? 400,000. China and the Soviet Union did far more than the US to save the world from fascism and didn't use nuclear weapons or fire bombs to torture civilians in the process. Sorry white supremacist capitalist empires and their stans due to hegemony mass-propaganda.
US backing fascism in Colombia as we speak: Dozens have been murdered by US-backed military siege to suppress left movements.
West fighting Nazis? More like hugging Nazis and giving'em bags of money.
US, UK and Euro allies working to fight- I mean help fascists in a coup for Bolivia's Lithium, to give it to Elon 'we will coup whoever we want' Musk for pennies on the dollar. Millions of poor and indigenous lifted from poverty, under MAS socialist party had to be crushed by US' Nazi pets, pushed back to poverty. Anez tweet: "I dream of a Bolivia free of indigenous satanic rites, the city is not for 'Indians,' they better go to the highlands or El Chaco," then gunned them down in the street.
Speaking of Russia and China doing the actual fighting against fascism in WWII, the US continues backing the far-right against R n C to this day! (unbeknownst to US' intentionally hyper-disinformed population)
"Helping (far-right Islam) against our adversaries worked marvelously well in Afghanistan against the Red army. The same doctrine can still be used to destabilize what remains of Russian power, and especially to counter the Chinese influence in Central Asia" --CIA
Then, after fomenting, funding all the far-right extremism, hundreds of terror attacks, the US turns around and baselessly accuses China of the 'human rights abuses' that it's *actually* committing globally, and all its West and Euro buddies help out star-spangled imperial daddy for a cut of the colonial spoils, by blasting 'human rights' propaganda based on a Nazi (Adrian 'Jews will burn in a furnace' Zenz) bogus claims, debunked for years.
The US, West and Europe: helping not just global fascism but LITERAL German Nazis still in 2021 have crackpot careers in academia, to keep fighting China and Russia. And actually HARMING the Uyghurs whose 'human rights' they purport to care about - in fact, the Westerners actually *pocketed* Uyghur salaries after costing them their jobs.
Biden Admin literally admit, "We would've let millions more die of covid for pharma billionaire profit and colonial bludgeoning... But for China and Russia getting vaccines to those who need it."
China and Russia doing the actual fighting of the war on covid 19, like they did the actual fighting in WWII.
@silverspookgames "and that's a bad thing because how else will our pharmaceutical industry PROFIT?!?"
@silverspookgames hate it when a foreign power exploits biotech to *checks notes* benefit all humanity
@silverspookgames the right way to saber rattle about this would be to claim that it could be used in bioweapons research, but they're too lazy to even pretend that they aren't the ones causing suffering
@silverspookgames Soooooo if they give up intellectual property... we'd find cures for things? And this is presented as a bad thing?
I, uh.... Yeah, god dammit I expected it but also I didn't.
@silverspookgames hard to imagine the editor looking at the word "warned" and not being like "we've gone full mad max i guess"
@silverspookgames so many leaky cracks now in their dam of lies... it makes me feel optimistic that we are on the verge of a big shift
It's the dumbest, most morally repugnant of arguments. Not to mention that China is far along in developing its own mRNA vaccines anyway.
@alicechesnokova Yes, the US backed death squads are killing and crushing Colombians right now. https://afgj.salsalabs.org/centropazifico-streetmedics/index.html?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=174d660d-b0e1-4b06-ac1b-192812edf177
@silverspookgames this is like a long thread and don't even try to find the truth to exaction... It looks like the general direction.
Although, while global North media often has dismal standard for evidence when it comes to official enemies, that doesn't mean none of it is true.
This whole "oh no they're gonna set a good example" part of a multipolar world is definitely an upside.
Also remember who started it
@kravietz @silverspookgames Yeah, that was after Poland told the USSR "Fuck you, we will not allow you onto our land to fight the Nazis" and nixed a Soviet Pact between Poland, the Soviet Union, France, and the UK. Also the Soviet Union's offer very was generous because Poland stole land in the Polish-Soviet War shortly after the Russian Revolution.
It was Poland who chased Stalin to a Non-Agression Pact with the Nazis because Poles have always wrongly feared Russians more than Germans.
Oh and my Great Uncle was a Polish soldier killed in the Polish-Soviet War, so stick your "you don't know what you are talking about" retort you are about to say.
> we will not allow you onto our land to fight the Nazis
Granted that only in 1920 Soviet Union invaded Poland (and failed) it was rather understandable decision. That would be equivalent with voluntarily accepting Soviet occupation.
> Poland stole land in the Polish-Soviet War
You should really educate yourself about the events after WW1 rather than blindly repeat Soviet and now Kremlin propaganda.
So just to remind you, there was no Soviet Union in 1917, not in 1920.
There was Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) and a number of countries that regained independence after WW1 and collapse of Russian Empire, including Poland, Baltics, Belarus, Ukraine etc.
RSFSR was pursuing an aggressive military expansion to "bring revolution" to these countries and was only stopped at Warsaw in 1920 when it signed Riga Peace with Poland.
An full-scale military invasion is *not* "sparking revolution", it's full-scale military invasion, genius.
This prompt replication of imperial expansion by Bolshevik was subject to harsh criticism from other communist movements in Russia (SR, anarchists), so Bolsheviks just liquidated them too.
After 1920 defeat they tried to "spark revolution" in neighbouring countries by sabotage and propaganda for all 30's but also failed.
Recommended reading - first-hand witness testimony from 1920, British communist Bertrand Russell describing his experience with Soviet "communism" after visit in RSFSR.
> The effect of Bolshevism as a revolutionary hope is greater outside Russia than within the Soviet Republic. Grim realities have done much to kill hope among those who are subject to the dictatorship of Moscow.
Russell didn't "have thoughts". Russell physically was in RSFSR in 1920 with a delegation of Western communists, talked to Lenin, spent weeks there and wrote what he saw and heard on the ground.
So I'm sorry but you're the one "having thoughts" here, not Russell.
His account was harshly criticised when he published it. Even though few of his fellow travellers argued with his factual record, they argued he missed "optimism".
He was right, ultimately.
> Poland was better off under the Soviet Union
Yes, and this is why they needed to falsify a referendum (1946) and elections (1947), and then suppress mass workers protests breaking out basically every 5 years, until Soviet collapse in 1989.
I don't even mention de-legalisation of the right to strike, but that was a well known feature of Soviet workers' rights package 😂
National socialist Third Reich (Italy was fascist) was conquered by Allies, not any single country and the victory wouldn't be possible without the effort of all these countries.
Not disputing the enormous sacrifice by Soviet people, it should be remembered that USSR was *not* among Allies in 1939 when the world started.
Quite the opposite - it joined Third Reich in invasion on Eastern Europe in 1939 and supported it until 1941.
In 1940 alone Soviet Union was supplying thousands of tons of strategic materials to the German military industry *bypassing* the economic blockade of Third Reich imposed by other countries.
The 1 May 1941 parade in Moscow actually had Nazi generals visiting as guests of honor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZbN_ujVWKY
@silverspookgames number of deaths on your side isn't the same as the contribution to the war effort.. But yes, the majority was the USSR.
