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.
@silverspookgames wait the US lost 400 000 people in WW2?
But how many of them actually did something?
The USA involvement I know of is D-Day.
USA and UK ran towards a heavily secured beach. They run and run and run and are shot at. The axis wonders why they stupidly attack such a well defended outpost.
UK and USA obtain pyrrhic victory.
And of course the Warner Brothers did some #snafu cartoons. That's what the USA did: sitting on their asses thinking greatly of themself
@silverspookgames I can assure you here in germany we get a lot of historic education. We have a lot more feelings towards russia, france and the polish than towards the US.
Yes the US drvied around with coca cola wagons after vitory. But it was russia which the usual 1940 german was fearing. Russia was powerful. UK and France were powerful. But the US? Who the fuck cares about the US? Back in the 40's the USA was just some sort of hillbilly ex-colony nobody cared less about.
> But it was russia which the usual 1940 german was fearing
Quite the opposite. In 1940 Soviet Union (not "Russia") was still an ally of Third Reich and supplying Germany with massive amounts of strategic materials in bypass of international sanctions.
Once again, Soviet Union and Germany were cooperating from 1939 till June 1941 when Hitler attacked USSR. But in May 1941 Nazi generals were still guests on parades in Moscow (!)
Where did I mention that this did not happen between 1939 and 1941?
The keen reader might see that I did not talk about that time period at al.
I have not written about their pact so I did not misinform about the pact.
"the usual 1940 german" refers to "Nazis during the majority of the third reich". 1940 in the sense of "the decade from 1940 to 1950" and obviously it's all nuanced.
> no agression packt
A non-aggression pact implies kind of neutral stance, but it was much broader:
* massive commercial supplies from USSR to Germany in bypass of international sanctions, effectively enabling German conquer of Europe
* joint military parades (Brest), frequent visits of Nazi officials in Moscow (including parades)
* cooperation of NKVD and Gestapo in suppression of resistance, exchange of prisoners (e.g. Jews who escaped to USSR in 30's)
Especially telling is the history of German communists and Jews who fleed Germany in 30's, then were sent back to Germany by the Soviets in 1941 - most of them were then killed or placed in concentration camps.
One of few survivors was Margarete Buber-Neumann who first survived GULag in Kazakhstan and then Ravensbrück in Germany (!)
@silverspookgames dying while trying does not constitute as "helping defeat".
The USA did the noble thing of... uh * searches in paper * waiting until the UdSSR got upper hand and then schoolboyishly chosing the UdSSR over the Third Reich * shuffles paper * WAIT the USA would have cooperated with the third reich in case it would look like the winning party?
Oh my god...
After all these years who knew that horrible war is bad and just a political game and no "heros" were made on either side
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.
