>>1039552 Yes, but only because the Democrats don't actually want to win. If they get the Senate they could pack the courts and abolish the electoral college which would guarantee Republicans never win again. They won't because it will cause a new party to appear to their left they will lose in the future, and its also not in their donors interest for them to pass anything they campaign on.

>>1039586 The cominterns resolutions and history of the development of 20th century fascism clearly show that the modern american mainstream left is essentially in a proto-fascist state. We are witnessing the battle between liberals and fascists here, there is no socialist presence at all. There is either hard capitalism (liberals) or class collaboration with idealist windowdressing (fascism) being presented.
>>1039582 *Biden more fascist. Hes to the right of Reagan.
>>1039551 If trump did end up being an actual fascist like he was "hiding his power level" for the first four years so he could become two termer and begin doing whatever the fuck he wants thats actually better for the left. If he's just some generic BoomerCon like he acts like the only people who are going to be actually taking direct action and rising up against his government are tiny lefty micro parties, Anarchist smashies and just lib NGO's holding signs. If he was actually a Fascist in the classic political sense and began like building permanent internment camps or something that would probably trigger actual popular resistance of which basically everyone to the left of him would support. And if the left acted approporiatly they could make themselves the forefront of it November/October 1917 started off with the Bolsheviks being a microparty that barely had any influence on the social revolutionary movement. After basically everyone began protesting only then did they begin picking up steam

>>1039589 The conservatives are way too large a faction to not have a party, and they aren't going to join the Democrats unless the avowedly liberal Democrats (or what counts as such) broke off to a different party, which they would never do. They won't pack the courts because very soon, elections won't matter and the political system as we know it won't exist in any recognizable form. The liberals as of late are more inclined to dictatorial methods than anyone. This talk of pretending the US political system can survive much longer is just indulging in the idealist belief that nothing ever really changes until someone writes a theory telling you it has changed.

The fact that we're debating whether or not Trump is a fascist instead of organizing for the betterment of the material conditions of the proletariat is literally proof that a Biden presidency is better for the left. How much of our time has Trump wasted? How many people could we be talking to about policy right now if they weren't so distracted by Trump's every erratic move? Trump derangement syndrome is real and we're all suffering from it.
>>1039655 Either that, or they're setting the trap to usurp the GOP's place. >>1039624 >>1039664 It does tho. There's only so much disparity you can cover up.
>>1039604 This, but I also think since leftism has been thoroughly stamped out in America, only fascism is able to spring from the crises of capitalism, and yet paradoxically, cannot take power without its socialist counterpart to spook the liberal establishment into allying with the fascists. Their only recourse is to invent a socialist boogeyman out of whole cloth, which unfortunately might actually work.
>>1039695 >The fact that we're debating whether or not Trump is a fascist instead of organizing for the betterment of the material conditions of the proletariat is literally proof that a Biden presidency is better for the left. Who? Bunkerchan, or the left or the american public in general?
Bernie ran on policy. A lot of the Democrats electorate were all for it, but that all took a back seat because of a fear of Trump. Everything was about Trump in the debates, and ultimately people chose Biden because while they liked Bernie and his policies they thought he was a liability to run against Trump. Trump is a distraction we need to get rid of.
>>1039695 Where are you coming from? This is clearly a psyop. You're not a leftist. Where are you coming from friend? I'm genuinely curious.

>>1039691 Genuinely elections already don't matter. I know it is a corny kind of juvenile thing to say, that teenagers say it, but it is true. We live in an insanely undemocratic country. Obviously the Supreme Court is an undemocratic institution, obviously the Senate has acted to make it fucking impossible to do anything without the consent of unpopulous rural states that are represented by psychos, and even if the Dems get majorities they don't want to do anything anyways because they're a thoroughly bourgeois party. And if you want to move outside of this and create an independent mass dues-based party, many states create ridiculous hurdles for 3rd parties. And people just take that shit for granted, they don't seem to get the implications of it at all. Everybody just acts like it is a nuisance that there are a hundred institutional barriers to any kind of mass, popular, let alone working class politics, rather than acknowledging it for truly what it is. This isn't a democracy. I know Marxists get that but I'm blown away how much abuse radlibs can take while still thinking they're going to just vote all of this away. Look at what happened in Chile. Look at what happened in Bolivia. Why can't Americans get it? BLM happened right? Police stations were burned down and shit? How about doing that for a real demand, like a constitutional convention or some shit? There is such a lack of imagination man. People are fucking voting for Joe Biden and saying it will buy time.

>>1040049 $1 to Planned Parenthood, the arch-Porkiest of institutions, is $1 too much. The real way abortion is "illegal" is by making ridiculous requirements for abortion providers, but this is only possible because of the threat of terrorist attacks against abortionists if they are very particular about pushing abortion in certain areas. Without that, the might of money and the demands for population control would override whatever petty shit the fundies put up. None of those people have any interest in ending population control.

>>1040085 Americans are humiliated daily. We've taken the Anglo tendency of self-deprecation and turned it into a form of abuse. Collectively, the country has been primed for fascism for some time now. They will accept any barbarity presented to them, or at least they will accept that there is no ability to fight it or stop it. Already, the neocons of Bush have been actively at work rehabilitating literal Hitlerites because muh commies. The theory behind America's wars - as in the story they tell themselves - is basically a recasting of the race war Hitler envisioned. America inflicts a Hitlerian death toll on the world, so if fascism is merely about being bad, we're pretty well there already. But fascism isn't about doing bad or mean stuff, and you can always make apologies for every horrible thing your country does and say it's not fascism / it's not evil. Krauts were in spectacular denial of Nazi atrocities right up until the bitter end, where after they were totally defeated they were marched at gunpoint to concentration camps to see what their rulers had done. It will probably take something like that, if it ever happens, to put a stop to the "it's not REAL fascism" bullshitters. People often forget how relatively tame the Nazis were, compared to what is technologically possible or the worst case scenario. If you were German, you could get by and pretend it wasn't ruined, until fascism shit the bed late in the war. It is merely a matter of degrees to see how bad America will get. There simply won't be a comparison to how bad it's going to get. You'll see executions on the street, to the thunderous applause of the state/corporate mass media. It would be like the most nightmarish conceptions one could have of the Roman Empire at its worst, except with modern technology and no way out whatsoever.

At the end of the day, the judiciary does whatever it wants to do, because it's their job to twist any set of words into having any meaning. And given that society has come to rely on government, and especially the courts, as the ultimate arbiters of what is true and what isn't, the SCOTUS pretty much can do whatever it wants to do, with the only democratic pretense in their way being the need to bring a judicial case which will allow them to do so. And as it happens, Trump got to appoint a fuckload of federal judges. In times past, you could expect them to have some sort of civic mindedness, but that's completely gone. >>1040050 everyone is deus ex gang there is no choice

>>1040023 The CPUSA says there is a fascist movement in the US that has rallied behind Trump, not that Trump himself is necessarily a fascist. I see way too many communists on the internet that only think of this election in terms of the individual candidates, which they then project onto the positions held by the various American communist parties. Stop caring so much about the individual candidates and focus on the greater context of this election. In general, Trump is backed by the most reactionary sections of the bourgeoisie while Biden is backed by the pre-2016 neoliberal establishment. Neither faction of the ruling class is "good" for us, but one of them has far more potential to establish a new status quo that is far more reactionary/fascistic.

>>1040154 America has been "totally mobilized" since the 1930s. There is less in-your-face propaganda, unlike the propaganda news reels of that decade, but America has been kept in a state of permanent emergency ever since, with the justification of nuclear war preparation or the War on Terror. There are no "liberal" empires, only liberal countries (and nation-states can only be part of large blocs, it is more appropriate to think of the American Empire as America and all of its allies that are taking orders from global Porky). Part of the big lie was telling people that fascism was inherently nationalistic, and that nation-states still mattered. They were of some relevance in the Cold War, as the nation-state was the piece of territory being exchanged between the great powers, but none of the supposed "countries" in Europe amount to piss or shit, and America itself is little more than the home base for the empire of capitalism. Fascism exhorts people to subordinate themselves to some collective, and to the state, but the nation-state was in its time just the most expedient vehicle for state power. You can quibble about whether it's "technically" fascism, because the operation of America Fascism is quite different from what the Nazis were doing. But all the parts about subordination to the state, the intense anti-democratic design of the ideology, that never stopped since the OG Fascists.

There's no there there, as far as the Bannon types presenting any actual alternative. The only thing Trump has is the culture war faggotry, which is why Trump has been running exclusively on that and meme magic in an attempt to re-do 2016. I expect, barring a blatant theft, that the results will be a substantial Demoshit win and Republicans will take the opportunity to denounce the whole Trump phenomenon, going back to their old well of basic bitch conservatism. Since the Democrats are likely to preside over more disaster, and Biden/Harris show an amazing indifference to anything the vast majority of the country wants, it would translate to a bounce back for the Rethugs no matter how dogshit they become.

https://www.healthaffairs.org/do/10.1377/hblog20170808.061398/full/ >Despite these recommendations, HUD does not require pre-rental lead hazard risk assessments in the Housing Choice Voucher program or project-based Section 8 housing for units receiving less than $5,000 in assistance. For Lanice Walker and Tolanda McMullen, Housing Choice Voucher program participants in Chicago, the lack of primary prevention resulted in lead poisoning and numerous disabilities for their once healthy children. Their pre-1978 units did not undergo a lead hazard risk assessment and still passed the housing authority’s “housing quality standards” inspection. Both mothers believed the “pass” result meant the home was safe for their children. They are not alone. Between 2010 and 2016, more than $5.6 million in federal funds were used to subsidize Housing Choice Voucher program units with known and uncontrolled lead hazards in Chicago alone. As a result, children in 187 homes were lead poisoned at levels above the CDC reference value, suffering permanent neurological damage. “My baby had been healthy,” Ms. McMullen told the Chicago Tribune, then “one day it seemed like the light in his eyes had just gone out.” >Lead hazard risk assessments and abatement are required in public housing and project-based Section 8 housing for units receiving more than $5,000 in assistance. However, enforcement of these rules is hampered by a lack of coordination between agencies. Federal investigators recently determined that the New York City Housing Authority falsely certified that it had inspected thousands of apartments for lead paint, exposing children in more than 4,700 federally assisted housing units to toxic lead paint. In East Chicago, Indiana, Stephanie King recently vacated the West Calumet Housing Complex due to hazardous levels of arsenic and lead surpassing 228 times the maximum permitted levels. Like all of the complex’s 1,100 residents, Ms. King was informed of the health hazards in her environment in August 2016, eight years after the area was designated a Superfund site by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Generations of families and thousands of people have suffered prolonged exposure to neurotoxins and carcinogens since the complex was first erected in 1966 on the former site of the US Smelter and Lead (USS Lead) Refinery and near other smaller smelting plants. West Calumet is not an isolated incident. Approximately 70 percent of the nation’s federally assisted housing is located near one of the country’s 1,400 Superfund sites.

>>1040483 A lot of places have it in the soil from being in high traffic urban areas during the leaded gasoline era, as well as paint chips that wear off buildings and become particularized in the wind, then they get in the water supply. Lots of places have lead pipes, and lead paint on the interior walls that was simply painted over instead of paying the costs for proper removal.

>>1040502 Without even looking at the links, I know exactly what articles you are talking about. Engels in this case is not making a racial argument about inferiority here, but a political one. At that time these Southern Slavs in particular were divided into small nations. These nationalities were considered to be fleeting by Marx and Engels in the sense that they thought that they would be incorporated into a broader nation-state. They doubted that these "relics of a nation" would actually be able to form a nation themselves in the long term. Many of them in fact at that time were trying to form some kind of pan-slavic union. So when they said that these people would disappear in the course of the revolution of 1848, they are simply talking about the disappearance of an independent national identity, not genocide. Of course, in the end this prediction turned out to be wrong. So you can definitely criticize them for getting it wrong, but you cannot say that they were racist against the Southern Slavs.
>>1040483 I wouldn't be surprised if the deep State has a program to deliberately put health hazards like that in low-income housing projects. It's not even a step beyond the crack epidemic, it's just a lateral move, really. >>1040502 >"racists are found to have lower IQs" study Link me, please. I want to gather as many of these as possible. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-human-beast/201104/conservatives-big-fear-brain-study-finds https://www.researchgate.net/publication/282421724_The_Association_of_Cognitive_Ability_with_Right-wing_Ideological_Attitudes_and_Prejudice_A_Meta-analytic_Review https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/beautiful-minds/how-does-iq-relate-to-personality/ >Consistent with prior research, IQ was most strongly related to openness to experience. Out of 9 dimensions of openness to experience, 8 out of 9 were positively related to IQ: intellectual engagement, intellectual creativity, mental quickness, intellectual competence, introspection, ingenuity, intellectual depth, and imagination. Interestingly, IQ was much more strongly related to intellectual engagement and mental quickness than imagination, ingenuity, or intellectual depth, and IQ was not related to sensitivity to beauty. >>1040511 This but unironically. Superheroes are literally the modern incarnations of myths. Yeah, I know, most of the output is crap, but our knowledge of, say, Ancient Greek mythology has been filtered throughout millenia to the best and most authoritative sources, so we are mercifully spared the mountains of bullshit written by the Grecian equivalents of Whedon and Bendis, to say nothing of the equivalent of amateur authors. >>1040495 >The bible isn't meant to be read critically. It is meant to be implanted as a moral compass. This but unironically too. It's not even a criticism, it's a statement of fact. That was the whole point of those tribal moral codes, even if, as in Christianism's case, it was mish-mashed with a gorillion other texts and myths.
>>1040483 >>1040540 >Since then the site has been part of a superfund cleanup effort to remediate the leftovers of decades of industrial and radiological use. Parcels have been sold off as they were cleaned up, mostly for condominium development. >The key fissile components of the first atomic bomb were loaded onto USS Indianapolis in July 1945 at Hunters Point for transfer to Tinian. After World War II and until 1969, the Hunters Point shipyard was the site of the Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory, the US military's largest facility for applied nuclear research.[2] The yard was used after the war to decontaminate ships from Operation Crossroads. Because of all the testing, there is widespread radiological contamination of the site. After the war, with an influx of blue collar industry, the area remained a naval base and commercial shipyard. >The Navy closed the shipyard and Naval base in 1994 as part of the next round of BRAC recommendations. Besides radioactive contamination, Hunter's Point had a succession of coal- and oil-fired power generation facilities which left a legacy of pollution, both from smokestack effluvium and leftover byproducts that were dumped in the vicinity. The BRAC program has managed the majority of the site's numerous pollution remediation projects. >In September 2016 the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) halted the transfer of additional land at Hunters Point from the Navy to the city and to real estate developers.[23] Per a letter sent from the EPA to the Navy, the process was placed on hold until "the actual potential public exposure to radioactive material at and near" the shipyard can be "clarified."[24] Pretty sure they washed all the boats from the Bikini Atoll tests there, which carcinogenic detergents of course.
>>1040536 One of the first things Biden will do if he's president is to grant universal absolute immunity to Trump and his family as act of "reconciliation".
>>1040568 How would libs cope with reality if that happened?

>>1040536 If this happened i would unironically kill myself
>>1040593 Libs went off the deep end when they joined the Obama cult of personality. Everything since then has been nonstop losing and finding justifications for it, as Democrats surrender any independent program beyond "Trump bad" and invite literal active Republicans into their government. It's all so disgusting.
>Biden wins election. Not by much but still a noticeable enough amount that Trump cant pull any SC antics. >Trump rants and raves and continues to rile up his base but on January 20th shakes Bidens hand leaves the white house. >Bidens never trump republican cabinet picks immediately vote to declare him incompetent and the GOP senate moves to impeach Harris. >Senate Pro-Tempure Grassley becomes president What level of acceleration would this result in?

Begorrah. What if the elite over-react to /pol/ talking about the Jewish conspiracy, as a form of reverse-psychology, so you focus on it, meanwhile ignoring the Hibernian conspiracy because it's too powerful to address, and reacting to it in the form of bans and ostracizing would only lend it more power? This is how Donald Trump was rocketed into the position of President. They pretended to oppose him hard so the "anti-establishment" would support him. Crafty paddies... they know how to trick the coimhthíoch.

>Donald Trump said today to a Truck driver who was a fan of his at his rally >"By the way, nice trucks. You think I could hop into one of them and drive it away? I'd love to do it. Just drive the hell outta here. Just get the hell out of this. I had such a good life. My life was great." Reminds me of a week or two back when he just randomly ended his speech early with "No one even wants me anymore..." and then walked off stage
