Hit up Ghazi, for one. There’s a lot of folk there who are harder on her for even talking to people outside the fold, than they ever were on Hbomb for straight up throwing a trans sexual assault victim under the bus in favor of his friend, the perpetrator of the assault.
It’s not an outright thing, it’s something you pick up from context - it’s the ardent criticism of everything she does, the passive-aggression and eye-rolling, the willful mischaracterisation of her ideals and statements, the endless picking appart anything she says. Which seems like normal, until you remember that there’s other leftist folk, like Cenk, the CTH crew, Greenwald etc who get straight up passes for shitty behavior, and often defended for it.
For example, just the day before they were discussing the latest Contra video, they were dismissing Cenk being caught being a mysoginistic shit in 2016 as “Not a deal” and “Just a smear from people who hate TYT”, and due to the person who bought it to attention, “Just a right-wing hatchet job.” And a few days before that, some older stuff that got uncovered, it was “Oh, but he’s changed, that was a long time ago, he’s one of the good ones now, just forget about it”. And people defending him about his Armenian Genocide denial in much the same way - it was a long time ago, he’s changed, etc.
Meanwhile, Contra makes fun of and with Leftists ever-so-gently, and suddenly she’s under the microscope, and every word and deed scrutinized, and often criticized. Instead of shooting on sight, it’s death by a thousand cuts, but they’re still going for it.
Nah, it’s alright. Most of them aren’t. But it doesn’t have to be. As the saying goes, if it’s stupid and it works…
Because racism and fascism is still alive and well. If it wasn’t under the nazi flag, it would be another dead facist regime’s flag, or one of their own invention.
