Ironically Naomi Klein correctly wrote back in 2007 about how CIA cutout the Ford Foundation helped support the fascist coup regimes in Chile and Indonesia and trained their right-wing neoliberal economists. That was before she started getting funded by the Ford Foundation pic.twitter.com/2drqabHcPu
Replying to @BenjaminNorton
A Harvard study found 95% of people in China support their socialist government. But billionaire oligarch-funded liberal pundits like Naomi Klein, following CIA assets like Gloria Steinem, want everyone to support the Western-backed 5% fringe opposition
Because some folks (and bots) have trouble with the concept:

Yes, you can support international solidarity w/ Chinese workers and oppose Western military intervention.

In fact, one reason to build solidarity from below is as a bulwark against military intervention from above.

AMLO's government nationalized Mexico's lithium, an important resource needed to create renewable energy technologies AMLO also reversed the privatization of Mexico's oil sector by corrupt past neoliberal governments youtube.com/watch?v=-xmfX3…

AMLO denounced US hypocrisy and demanded freedom for Julian Assange, calling him a “prisoner of conscience” and the “best journalist of our time” At a press conference, AMLO even played a WikiLeaks video showing the US military killing civilians in Iraq

At the press conference in which Mexican President AMLO called for Julian Assange to be freed, he showed a clip of the "collateral murder" video published by @WikiLeaks, which exposed US war crimes and killing of journalists in Iraq.

AMLO condemned the illegal US blockade of Cuba as “genocide.” AMLO is Mexico's first leader in decades who has maintained a foreign policy independent from US imperialism. It's definitely not perfect and there are criticisms, but it's a huge improvement multipolarista.com/2022/06/07/mex…

The USA is the world's "wealthiest" country (although only the rich benefit). Yet its public services are so bad that its 4th-largest city is warning residents to boil their water.

Many formally colonized, developing countries have much cleaner water than the ultra-capitalist US
A boil water notice has been issued for the City of Houston ‼️ Everyone should boil the water before drinking, cooking, bathing, and brushing their teeth.

Mainstream US conservatives are so blatantly fascist at this point they're soon gonna be openly calling for throwing all "communists" (which just means anyone left-wing) in prison camps

They're also climate science deniers who will happily destroy the planet to save capitalism
Replying to @BenjaminNorton
These reactionaries are painfully stupid. They have no idea what communism is and couldn't define it What's hilarious is how he's just describing capitalism -- his beloved genocidal system in which a small group of billionaire oligarchs control everything
Communism has never been majority populated by people who are actually communists. The wealthy communist planners have always relied on masses of ignorant people who don’t know they’re being used until it’s too late. Guess which one you are.

Western civilization simply lacks the will to save itself from the communist hordes. It’s really that simple. All these climate dealt cult protests would stop overnight with one round of 10 year prison sentences. Overnight.
