ICYMI: Tempest's brian bean submitted a response to Hadas Thier's article in Jacobin, who argued against expulsion. 51 minutes after submission, it was rejected. BDS is a picket line. Do comrades cross picket lines? tempestmag.org/2021/12/do-co…

"In heated Twitter exchange, millionaire Fox News commentator Glenn Greenwald insinuates that a labor union representing petroleum platform workers who made an average of US$350/month in 2020 is “privileged”."
Glenn Greenwald has clashed with the Brazilian Petroleum Workers Union, calling them "privileged leftists" for questioning libertarian billionaire Jack Dorsey's investment in Rio favelas. brasilwire.com/greenwalds-em…

Bear in mind: the DSA needs Palestine much more than Palestine needs the DSA.

When you tether Palestinian liberation to U.S. electoralism, this is the kind of mealy-mouthed nonsense you inevitably end up with.
New York congressman Jamaal Bowman has made a number of wrong decisions on Israel-Palestine. But socialists should criticize those errors without driving him away from the Palestine liberation movement and the Left. jacobinmag.com/2021/11/democ…

The AFL-CIO-CIA's "Solidarity Center" is funded 95.14% funded by the US government, and only 4.86% funded by all other sources, including actual unions and union members. US imperialism has a sock puppet with a hard-hat. orinocotribune.com/solidarit…

As a member of DSA, an endorsed candidate of @SeattleDSA, and a member of the Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus, you will never find me on a propaganda trip to Israel and I will always support #BDS. Mark my words.
Had a great meeting with @RosaDelauro, @RepBarbaraLee, @JamaalBowmanNY, @MondaireJones, @MelanieforNM & @repmarkpocan in my office in Jerusalem. It was good seeing you and discussing ways to strengthen the US-Israel alliance. 🇮🇱 🤝 🇺🇸

Socialist patriotism is for socialist countries. Appealing to the patriotic impulses of Americans can be useful in the correct context, but patriotism towards a reactionary society should not be a core aspect of your socialist ideology. Your socialism shouldn't have a prefix.

Every irony poisoned ambiguous “lol” reaction to this is really gross because it helps them whistle pass reality that this guy led a psychotic movement to harass parents after they lost their young children in a mass shooting. He’s that guy now. Not “lol lizard people”.
