      It’s not a very good label for this. There’s a certain subsection of the left that sees anti-Americanism as an ideology, and therefore any state that opposes America is categorically good.

      They’re not common, and they tend to overlap with the sort who’s mom found their weed stash and made them throw it away. Lacking weed, they turn to making a lot of loud noises on Lemmy.

          Lemmy exists because of them. Dessalines and crew didn’t make Reddit for Leftists as a mere coincidence after r/ChapoTrapHouse got banned.

              Hexbear is more sane than it seems but their loudest voices are… Quite loud. Generally because of the tools they had that other instances don’t and just come off as annoying to anyone outside of the community.

              The problem with judging where the Chapo diaspora ended up is that while Hexbear started from the sub ban it has become a fairly different community and there’s also quite a lot of shared users between Lemmy.ml, Lemmygrad, and Hexbear, and then there’s the fact that the exit of the radical left from Reddit was about more than Chapo alone.

          Yeah, autocorrect is a bitch. Makes all of us look like fools. Especially if one types with swipe.

            Autocorrect is the most arrogant technology I’ve ever had the misfortune of dealing with…

            It’s one thing to correct spelling, but this mothefucker completely disregards correct words in place of what it thinks I wanted to say…

            No motherfucker I said what I wanted to say!

            If I didn’t go back and edit every mistake autocorre CC t made, none of my comments would ever be legible

            My favorite thing is when my thumb goes too far down while I’m typing “because,” and it thinks I wanted to say “be a use”

      Hi, western communist here. Russia is a christo-fascist state but some fellow commies have accepted the position that any faction against US global dominance is one worth supporting regardless of their actual policies and humanity. The idea being that the #1 goal should be the distruction of the hegemony that has oppressed many of the worlds nations in the hopes that communism can rise out of them now that they would be free to make that choice.

      Most communists in the West are not like this. This is a specific subsection of communists who want to knowingly support christo-fascists. Most western communists fucking hate Russia.

        Which is basically ’ I’m only pretending to be an asshole’ aka ‘it’s just a prank bro’

        Anyone claiming to be fucking things up because they belive it’ll magically fix everything is a liar and an idiot.

          It’s literally foreign propaganda aimed at the mid-wit segment; a way to lever the vaguely leftwing-but-angry via formal sounding philosophy.

          It’s also why you really only find it discussed on Lemmy or 8chan, etc.

            Accelerationists are socialists who think it’s fine if a ton of gay people are killed right now, as long as it means there’s a chance they won’t be later

            Fuck accelerationists

            I used to be an accelerationist when I was 14 cause I hated everyone and everything and wanted all the people around me to be as depressed as I was. Then I went to therapy.
