Buzzfeed editor gives a crash course on why the triple parentheses became a thing, putting out a tweet saying his tweet about how people should kill white men was a joke and anyway he's white while pulling a "Hello fellow white people" shapeshifting Jew thing where he talks about white privilege and shared experience, need to reflect and so on, immediately shut down with people quoting him saying that as a Jew he doesn't have white privilege and isn't white.

Just saying.
It has its place in very specific circumstances, same as, "Hello fellow white people".

I've long been an advocate for the left appropriating Pepe. Pepe is a worker.

As far as the alt right's attempt to appropriate the pride colors go, though, I don't see that being a massive success anywhere in the near future. As usual, far righters are too incompetent to actually keep the quiet part of their ideology quiet, and their memery is forced like hell. Honkler is already tainted (and was a rather pathetic "GAMERSRISEUP" kind of meme to begin with). And if the alt right thinks they can beat LGBT+ people in a meme war, they're in for a shock.

I wish the workers of Buzzfeed News would just seize the whole thing and turn it into a nice co-op that does nothing but journalism.

It's not flip-floppy in context. It's an example of how some Jews who are progressives often gaslight people and use these kind of tricks to deflect criticism. "My racist screed against white people doesn't count, because I'm white, but i'm not white when It suits me and I don't need to follow the rules I set".

It is an aspect of progressive ideology and its tactics and how it is harmful/insincere. Whether or not a Jew is white is irrelevant, a gentile White cannot force anyone to admit it, much the same as you cannot force someone operating in bad faith to operate in good faith.

Buzzfeed is an example of where triple parentheses should be used, same as content written by a neo-nazi posing as a black person routinely to suggest they riot for civil rights and only marry their own kind because white people are lame amirite? should come with a warning label.

A Jew who is simultaneously white and not white when it suits him and routinely pushes a "Hello fellow white people" angle to justify the most extreme anti-white rhetoric, ideology, and positions, should come with a warning label. Applying those standards you see a few other notable publications that should come with it too.

Speaking of Jewish people, being white and all that jazz... I am seeing a lot of left-wing pushback online against a couple of common tactics of what I would call liberal progressivism.

The usual suspect, of course, is a fraction of the woke side of Twitter desperately trying to outwoke Bernie Sanders by pointing the finger at his age, gender and skin tone as disqualifiers. It doesn't seem to be going anywhere other than its own sad circle-jerk, specially when every candidate who might get woke points on identity alone is not doing a great job of accompaining their identity with actual socially and economically progressive policy.

Then there's the Alabama thing. As I've come to expect, a major liberal talking point is that men are voting for these anti-abortion laws, but little by little some people on the left are pushing back and pointing out that, in fact, a lot of the grassroots activism against reproductive rights is carried out by conservative women, and a woman signed that Alabama bill into law. I still think there's legitimacy to the idea that decisions on women's reproductive health should prioritize the insights of those who'd be directly affected it (chiefly, women), but not to the extent of assuming as a matter of principle that gender inherently determines one's tendency to be on the right or wrong side of this debate.

Has that person in particular ever claimed himself to be non-white by virtue of being a Jew? If not, I don't see how his Jewishness matters.

To be fair, it's a comedy and it seems like he's committed to mocking the everlasting crap out of Hitler, so I don't think it called for serious method acting. :P

Yugoslavia's back baby...

How the hell did this happen?
Well, this happened because after a failed attempt at a corporatocracy, Serbia was left with a pseudo-nationalist government which was incompetent to say the least. Following a revolution, a slightly authoritarian social democracy was established. More nations were incorporated as time went on. Now it's slightly-self sustaining and technologic advanced.

Almost like you're waking up to the fact that a huge amount of those "Reasonable people" whose side you are on when it comes to "Immigration reform" don't actually sincerely hold the positions they hold, but use them as an excuse to hate an ethnic group. (And in your case, sex.).

They just haven't seen good leftist memes yet. I used to think the same thing, and I'm left-wing. That was before I discovered things like Stonetoss edits and Tumblr's meme culture.
IC name is "The United Socialist States of America".
This nation does not represent my actual political beliefs.
NS stats are mostly canon, but serve more as a guideline than anything else.
Collectivism, capitalism, authority, and individuality all do not function in a vacuum, or at least not on a large enough scale to be worth basing an ideology around, and they must all be tempered by the opposing force. (Not a centrist, by the way, but they do raise good points, and they're probably the most sane and level headed ideology - and yes, mine is no exception.)
Shrek dies in Endgame.
My factbooks are quite messy, I'll update them sometime in the distant future.

I'm an 18 year old Australian male* who tries to think about things but fails, as we all do. I'll regret this in 2 years tops.
