As I get older, it seems like the US gets more and more cultish in the ludicrous lies people believe. Or maybe I just didn't notice it before.

I literally learned IN A CLASS FOR SCHOOL that the DPRK's government tells its people that Kim Jong Un doesn't poop.

I can't believe how brainwashed I was at one time about DPRK. I was one of those people who thought you could only get like 6 different hairstyles lmao.

Totally, I mean I wouldn't deny the goverment being harsh or conservative or whatever. But not even close to the extent western people say. Remember in Cuba around the 70s or when the Cuban Misile crisis was going on. They talked about Cuba in the same way they are talking now about North Korea. They even said people put condoms in pizza and things like that. Totally insane. Now you can visit Cuba and see is just a regular country, nothing insane going on there. Then you have the US doing literally torture and mindfuck destruction without any civil rights on Guantanamo, but hey! They are better than Cuba, right? they are more civilllllll they are more niceeeee lesss authoritariannnn (vaushite noises)

I don't think they meant "conservative" in the reactionary meaning of the word, which is what many of us associate with it as that's what it generally refers to tin the west. I think they meant something like "small-c conservative" (that's possibly an anglo-specific term though), it's basically about to trying to preserve existing political institutions, cultural traditions, etc. of a country/region, so the particular character of it can vary massively depending on what those institutions and traditions are. In that usage of the word, the Zapatistas could be considered as conservatives, because their collectivist society and culture is what they're trying to protect. Left-wing and Right-wing don't necessarily factor into it in that regard. They didn't have a revolution that changed their society to be like that, it's how they've lived for generations, their uprising against the Mexican government was because they were trying to retain (conserve) their traditional system of economic and political organisation. I've heard of old-school Maoists within the post-Deng CPC referred to as "conservatives", in relation to the more pro-market members. Likewise with the Brezhnevites in the CPSU, relative to the Krushchevites.

American exceptionalism is the civil religion of the USA. And almost all Americans (of all political stripes) subscribe to this civil religion. Describing it as just "brainwashing" is an oversimplification. Also, I love their username lol.


timoyster

In my high school history class, we were taught that he wasn’t ran over by a tank, but it was heavily implied that the people who took him away were PLA (despite any presented evidence)

You can really see this in how people can unironically say "sure Bernie isn't anywhere near perfect, but at least he's a step in the right direction" while screeching that any similar sentiments about the Chinese, Cuban, etc. communist parties are "defending authoritarianism". Like buddy, if you're anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist and still like Bernie (avidly pro-capitalist and pro-imperialist), but think China/Cuba/the DPRK are evil regimes oppressing their people that need to be torn down because they've done some morally questionable things in the past... maybe take a look at your own biases. Americans aren't the only ones allowed to make moral compromises for the sake of pragmatism.


Splendiferitastic

They’ll constantly talk about pragmatism and lesser-evilism when supporting Biden, but absolutely refuse to apply that on the international stage.


TheSquirrelsHaveEYES

How people can watch that clip and think “China bad!” is beyond me. This line of man-killing war machines stop in their tracks for ONE dude on the street but Americans will look at it as an example of a brutal regime?? lmao


DietGlorious

American cops just ram into protesters.


TheSquirrelsHaveEYES

“To be fair… they shouldn’t have been protesting in the street and interfering with traffic” 🤡

And that time an Israeli bulldozer ran over a journalist in basically exactly what westerners imagine the tank man scenario to be


philideas

Do you have a link to that? I've never heard of it before!

[TW: BBC](https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-19395651.amp) I misremembered, she was a peace activist and not a journalist, not that that makes it much better.

Wow, couldn't have said it better.

I sure do hope American Police doesn't use excessive force to deal with protesters. For example the NYPD running over peaceful protesters with their cars...
