Political discussion is fine. Want to talk about the recent supreme court decision about the right of states to subpoena the president? Want to talk about Carmen Arroyo getting removed from the ballot in NY? Plenty of political topics to discuss freely. If you like politics so much, how come you aren’t discussing them?
What is not fine in this community is being right-wing. Even if a person is on the far left in their heart, if they behave and post in a way that is indistinguishable from someone on the far right, then it must be treated as a person being on the far right. I have no way to know what someone truly believes in their heart, and can only judge the content of their posts. If someone posts only attacks on Biden, even true ones, that sure looks right wing to me.
There’s no gatekeeping, just awful reality. There are two cups. One cup has a drink that tastes fucking awful. One has literal poison. One of the two cups will be chosen. Everyone is going to be forced to drink a huge swig from the chosen cup. There is no avoiding this fact of life. Just like there is no way to prevent the earth from spinning on its axis. Even if someone stays home and ignores politics, someone will come to their door and pour the contents of one of the cups down their throat, metaphorically speaking.
If someone has the power to vote for the awful tasting cup, they are morally obligated to do so. They are also morally obligated to do what is within their power to make sure as many other people as possible choose the non-poison cup. Not doing so means they are partially responsible for us all having to drink poison. They will be partially responsible for the preventable deaths of other people. And therefore, they can go fuck themselves and get the fuck out.
When someone comes around and all they ever talk about is how icky the icky tasting cup is, as Rym said, what are they trying to achieve? The only thing that spreading that true information can do is to bring us all one tiny step closer to drinking poison. It’s especially suspicious when the same people do not constantly share any information about how poison the poison cup is.
To be on the left in the US a person must either support and vote for Joe Biden, or they must foment a literal revolution to overthrow the government. Not a false dichotomy, just the shitty reality we live in.
