Things shared on Feb 11ths: being called Hon, paying attention to politics, more

I really like it when strangers call me "Hon".

Noted because it just happened and a lot of snobs online throw hissyfits when working class people address them in a familiar way.

-

The more I pay attention to politics, the worse they get. I am very sorry about this. I'll try to stop.

-

Claiming antiZionism is antisemitism is an example of neoliberal identitarianism. It’s no different than claiming people who criticized Clinton are sexist and people who criticized Obama are racist.

-

What's antisemitic is saying "It's about the Benjamins" is antisemitic. The Benjamin's last name is Franklin. AIPAC is a Political Action Committee. Being about the Benjamins is literally what PACs are about.

-

When talking to defenders of capitalism, remember who defended feudalism: those who benefitted from it and those who could not imagine a better way.

-

Matthew 5:5 unites my primary concerns, ending poverty and protecting the planet: The poor shall inherit the earth.

From 2016:

Dear Clinton feminists, please stop bashing women who think politicians' policies matter more than their gender.
