This piece is in response to a video that Riley Dennis recently made, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U77nA8rJL6Y&t=331s
While 14:11 isn’t exclusively a third-worldist site or paper, it does draw from some of the conclusions that third-worldists come to, specifically with regard to the revolutionary potential of the first world worker. It’s hard to deny that the first world worker is very privileged compared to his third world counterpart, due to this security the first world worker is less likely to be revolutionary in outlook, at best he can support some revolutionary causes such as Anti-Imperialism.
The most recent election heightened this fact really, none of the candidates involved supported any kind of non-interventionism, the best option was that you could sort of say that Donald Trump represented a detente with Russia while still supporting fighting the Islamic State in Syria. So while you’d avoid WW3 you’d still have the military bombing Muslims that are trying to make their own governmental decisions. Of course there are bigger geopolitical reasons behind these bombing campaigns, some of which are talked about by Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri and are posted on this site.
For ‘progressive’ people to support Hilary Clinton simply because she was better than Donald Trump is pure First-world privilege, and not in terms of the Social Justice phrasing of it. This privilege is in the sense that, while the progressives in the U.S get their health care and their ‘free’ college you are supporting a candidate that openly calls for regime change in Russia and in other places around the world, particularly in the third world.
So if Hilary Clinton can call for action against Russia, imagine what she’d do to smaller states such as North Korea, or Syria, or Iran, or any other country that doesn’t want to go along with U.S policies. We already have an idea of what it’d be like, remember she voted for the Iraq War and went along with the Bombing of Yugoslavia. She’s also a fervent Zionist and a supporter of Israel, so how does that work with the ‘progressive’ attitude of supporting Palestine?
So she supported a number of wars of aggression against countries that didn’t do anything to the U.S, she supports escalating a war in Syria that has nothing to do with us and probably feels the same way about Afghanistan too. Yet she’s the ‘progressive’ choice.
No.. No she’s not, she’s the imperialist choice. She’s the choice of people who care nothing for third world people, yet want all their resources for themselves. She’s just another war hawk that seems to delight in killing people and has made a career out of it.
Bernie Sanders was just as bad, he was a Zionist too and supported intervention in Syria, he is cut from the same cloth as Hilary Clinton. It’s not about being left or right, it’s about saying No to wars that have nothing to do with the U.S, and in a lot of cases the so-called ‘Alt-Right’ was more progressive on this issue than many of the Social Justice types.
Why would you still support her? What could make you forget about what she did in Libya? You should give me an Intersectional analysis of why Libya exploded like it did Riley, tell me why Hilary Clinton supported groups of people who attempted to wipe out a town called Tawergha simply because it was a town that had a predominately black population.
So just to recap, Hilary Clinton was not the progressive choice, there was no progressive choice in the latest U.S election, it was a contest between different factions of imperialists. If someone is an imperialist it doesn’t matter what their gender or sexuality is, they’re still an imperialist.
