ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS THE UNIONS GAVE TO ME,

 No.1296856

UK government may challenge Scottish gender change law
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-63909309
"A new law is set to be passed by the Scottish Parliament which will simplify the legal process for anyone in Scotland who wants to change their gender.
But the signs are that the UK government could refuse to recognise it, causing huge issues for people affected who want to relocate elsewhere in the UK."

"A UK government source close to the process told the BBC this was "absolutely" possible.
The Westminster government is also not ruling out the prospect of a legal challenge once the legislation is passed by MSPs - it believes the new law may have an impact on areas where policy is decided in London."

"A UK government source told the BBC that they had concerns people from elsewhere in the UK may relocate to Scotland to change gender.
And they claimed Scottish ministers wanted to paint Scotland as a "haven of inclusivity" in comparison to a "nasty Westminster"."

Labour says it would stop Cumbria coalmine from opening
>Ed Miliband, the shadow climate change secretary, said: “A Labour government will leave no stone unturned in seeking to prevent the opening of this climate-destroying coalmine, and instead ensure we deliver the green jobs that people in Cumbria deserve.”
>Labour expects the mine to run into serious legal challenges long before the general election. Activists are already planning to seek a judicial review of the government’s decision to grant permission for the mine.
>The Woodhouse Colliery, near Whitehaven in Cumbria, is the first new coalmine to be given a green light in 30 years. The £165m project, which would create about 500 jobs and produce 2.8m tonnes of coking coal a year for steelmaking, was first proposed in 2014. Ministers allowed planning permission to go ahead in early 2021, before rescinding that decision while the UK prepared to host the Cop26 UN climate summit in Glasgow last November.
Not that is really a brave stand: the coal mine is apparently completely unnecessary economically and just an electoral strategy by the Conservatives. Most of the coal is for export and it has high sulphur content. Sulphur in coal being oxidized and released into the air when burned is one of the biggest causes of acid rain.

Honest question: if the Vatican II council was truly a product of communist infiltration (as tradcaths love to claim) how the FUCK did it fly under the radar of the CIA?

In the 1960s the CIA was overthrowuyghovernments around the world, manipulating leftist movements, engaging in mass disinformation campaigns, and so on. If they got word the biggest and most powerful religious institution in the world was infiltrated by communist agents who were pushing all sorts of reforms in the Church, why did they do nothing about it? Or if they did, why do we have no record of it?

Not to mention, how did all the alleged commie priests in the US fly under the radar of the FBI during McCarthyism?

There's no honour among thieves. In that world comrades cannibalize themselves. Dodd should have known that before she agreed to run with so-called "union thugs" for 14(?) years. She was well aware of what CPUSA's agenda and strategies were. She knew Foster was a hardcore labour militant. And most importantly, she knew how comrades would treat her if she turned her back on them, which she did. I don't have an ounce of sympathy for her. Fuck that rat.

If there’s no honour among thieves then why do we ascribe honour to the “party line” or no-snitching code?

If it was wrong for Bella to go against the party line then why was it wrong for her to snitch? Or better yet, why was it wrong for Browder to do what he did?

You’re implying there are no rules yet the party line is somehow the rule above all rules. Don’t you see how contradictory that is?

It's the squeeze, it stated with colleges getting expensive and now the employer is looking to maximize their work load and minimizing pay, mainly by looking for a mythical human that fits the requirements so that the next best person who comes along needs to settle for less pay and more work since it's unrealistic to find these perfect qualified people.

Is there a point to talking about, reading, or really spending any amount of time on politics knowing that 95% of the world disagrees with us?

We will never win an election in a first world country. Which leaves waiting for a "worldwide collapse" which socialists have been saying is coming for a hundred years now. No one explaining why during the "worldwide collapse" the 95% of liberals who disagreed with us before won't just take power and implement some other form of liberalism.

Which leaves "Some third world country will become Communist and save us" forgetting that every time this happened in the past the US (along with neighboring capitalist countries) successfully overthrew or the caused of collapse of the country making it much worse off. No one explaining why some tiny Indian community of 15,000 people potentially going communist who will eventually end up getting overthrown is going to help someone in the first world who speaks English or the millions of Vietnamese slave labor making our goods.

What is the point of even wasting our short time on this earth on politics? Just spend your days finding happiness and beauty and forget about what is happening outside of your life. And don't say something like "oh just unionize on a local level or start a community garden" or some dumb shit because that's literally a drop in the bucket. Doesn't' stop the billions of people being exploited because you wasted precious hours and hours of your life unionizing some local artisan cafe of 6 guys who now have 2 sick days off and a $4 pay increase.(doomer thread)

This is one of the issues with /leftypol/ … It is taken for granted that leftism == communism.

I’m a libertarian socialist. I stand in opposition to communism, in fact, I think fascism is preferable to communism. /leftypol/ is ridiculous in its defense of communism sometimes. In PRC general, someone had the audacity to say that having 30 million more men than women is essentially a non-issue.

/pol/ hates the jews, /leftypol/ hates the porkies. Rather than working together, you kill them because they’re Jewish, we kill them because they’re slave-driving capitalist pigs, when we’re done killing the rich and overthrowing the government you get to live in a theocracy in the country and I get to live in a socialist city-state, /leftypol/ avoids real action and real discussion and secludes itself, confining its activities to debating the nuances of communist theory and shitting on anyone who disagrees. If I were a gambling man, I’d say that the lack of real discussion on /leftypol/ is the result of glowie control.

Well as for leftypol, idk it's mostly Americans I guess who don't really care about French politics.

As for the media, I think you know why. I always feel like France's imperialism doesn't nearly get as much shit as it deserves. It is a failing empire and Macron is just turning it in a USA Lite where everything is privatized and outsourced.

>We're such a corrupt amoral shithole, and sarko is butt budy with macron and the french oligarchs


Pretty much, it's very sad to see how oblivious most french are to these subjects, so many times when these subjects come to light you get the straight colonialism apologia "Oh but now they benefit from our social security, so they are actually better off! Oh but we are helping them to defend themselves by sending soldiers, think of the terrorists!" It's very disgusting.

7 years ago I remember arguing with leftists that doing airstrikes and extrajudicial assassinations in Syria and that the state of urgency was probably not okay and something we should protest or at least question. Some people think I'm edgy when I say the Bataclan massacre was a little taste of the medicine France constantly inflicts on the third world, and you know when msm talks about that they love to miss out the part where the terrorists demanded the evacuation of french forces from Afghanistan during the hostage situation.
