The ndp are no less imperialist than any other political party in parliament. Sure, they hide it behind their fake anti-racist and pro-union rhetoric, but when it comes down to reality, they support kkkanadian and u.s. imperialism. Trying to get them to take a more " progressive" stand is ludicrous and delusional, but this article is still worth reading, so please do.

The incredibly gross hypocrisy of the bullshit coming out of the u.s.'s mouthpieces is fucking staggering. It seems so obvious, but I guess the same people who believe in the electoral circus and morons like kanye west who believe that " slavery was a choice " wouldn't be able to find reality even if it hit them in the face, which it will one day. Read this. Melania trump is also a fucking idiot and asshole.
The Gross Hypocrisy of Melania Trump’s “Be Best” Campaign—and the Reality of America’s Long Criminal History of Torture, Rape and Murder of Children
May 14, 2018 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
In a White House ceremony this week with Donald Trump, Mike Pence and several cabinet officials present, Melania Trump announced a campaign called “Be Best” supposedly aimed at promoting the well-being of children. She said, “Children deserve every opportunity to enjoy their innocence.” The fact that this display of brazen hypocrisy wasn’t immediately met with loud jeers and outrage from the media and every corner of society is a sign of just how dangerously normalized this American fascist regime has become. On the very same day that this regime was claiming to care about children, Trump’s attorney general Jeff Sessions declared that all undocumented adults who are caught going across the border into the U.S. with children will be considered to be criminals “smuggling” minors, prosecuted, and separated from their kids. This means even more ugly inhumanity against children of immigrants—on top of a situation in which over 700 kids have been ripped away from parents or other adults by the Border Patrol since October 2017, more than 100 of them under the age of 4. Think of what this is doing to children who are already traumatized by having to uproot their whole lives in their home countries because of upheavals and crushing poverty, and then by the harrowing and often deadly trek across the border. This is the regime that now claims to be for the well-being of children!?!
Anyone with an ounce of humanity in their hearts must join in the movement of millions to drive out this fascist regime, before they consolidate their power and do even more incalculable harm, perhaps threaten civilization as a whole. But if you think that what’s needed is a return to when America was “better” and stood for something “good” in the world, then you need a dose of reality.
When have America and its rulers ever cared about the well-being of children? During the horrific 400 years slavery, when children were auctioned off as their enslaved parents watched and “sold down the river” to slave owners hundreds of miles away, never to be seen again? Did the slave-owning class, and the capitalists in the North who greatly profited from the plantation economy, give a fuck about the unknown number of lives of children and parents they destroyed? The obvious answer is no—unless you’re one of those, like Kanye or his pal Trump, who blame the slaves themselves for being in chains.
Was the well-being of children in the minds of America’s rulers when they carried out massacre after massacre of Native American peoples, including many, many children and babies? Or when they conducted cultural genocide by taking away thousands of Native American children from their parents and sending them to boarding schools, where their Native American culture was forcibly driven out of them through Christian indoctrination and physical, mental, and sexual abuse? Again—the rulers didn’t give a fuck about these children.
Look at the children, along with the adults, who were ruthlessly exploited by the rising capitalists in the factories of America, under dirty, unhealthy, and often life-endangering conditions. And as these capitalists became capitalist-imperialists whose empire now stretches across the globe, look at the children working in near-slavery conditions in the factories, mines and fields—and many forced into sexual slavery at an early age—in vast regions of the world, part of the international web of exploitation and oppression that goes into building up the vast wealth and power of the U.S. rulers.
When Harry Truman, the Democratic president, ordered the dropping of the atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, was he thinking about the well-being of the many, many children who were among the 200,000 humans, overwhelmingly civilians, who were incinerated? No, all that he and the other rulers had in mind was that these weapons of mass murder would be a signal to the world—to their rival powers as well as the masses of people—that America was now the number one imperialist godfather everyone had to bow down to. And these same rulers would go on just a few years later to lead an invasion and war in Korea that killed over 3 million people—again, including massive numbers of children, and again, in order to benefit the cause of their empire.
During the Vietnam War, among the Vietnamese people that the GIs tortured, raped, and massacred were many children. Probably pretty soon, the Republican Senator John McCain will die and then there’ll be a huge memorializing of him as an “American hero,” including how he survived after being shot down as a bomber pilot during the Vietnam War. No, he wasn’t a fucking hero—he was a war criminal, along with all the other American soldiers participating in that war! Go to www.revcom.us and read the piece by a Vietnam War vet, titled “We Were Baby Killers for U.S. Imperialism,” that runs down some truth about the atrocities and horrors the U.S. troops committed.
Let’s not forget one of the towering crimes of the Bill Clinton presidency in the 1990s, when the years-long U.S. economic sanctions on Iraq cut off medicine, food, and other vital supplies and killed 500,000 children in that country—more than were killed in the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Do we need to ask whether this unspeakable horror led those running the U.S. to reconsider their actions? Madeleine Albright, the secretary of state under Clinton, was later asked by a TV interviewer about the death of half a million children—“Is the price worth it?” Albright’s answer: “We think the price is worth it.”
We could go on and on…but what we’ve laid out here is more than enough to point to the truth: America, from its beginnings to today, has always meant horrors and mass suffering for children—and for people overall—here and around the world. Trump, Pence and the rest of the cabal represent an extreme form of the system of capitalism-imperialism that poses an immediate threat to humanity, and that’s why their fascist regime must go. But how can going back to “imperialism as usual”—under monsters who think killing half a million children in the interest of their system is “worth it”—actually move the world beyond the horrors we already faced before Trump? Nothing less than an actual revolution to overthrow the rulers and their system—when a revolutionary situation has been brought into being and millions are ready to be led to fight all out, with a real chance to win—can bring about a completely new, and much better, political and economic system based on the interests of humanity.

It's time for everyone who claims to believe in justice to stand with the Palestinians against the genocidal state of israel, and their godfather, the u.s.a. Of course asshole trump was blaming the Palestinian people for the fucking massacre that took place, once again turning reality on it's fucking head. Fuck imperialism and all of it's apologists.

Again we see the true face of the u.s. and it's #1 ally, israel. Are you anti-semitic if you condemn this massacre ? Fuck no, but you're a fucking lowlife piece of shit if you don't.
U.S.-Israeli Massacre Kills 58 Palestinians and Wounds Over 2,700
U.S.-Israeli Massacre Kills 58 Palestinians and Wounds Over 2,700
Everyone Must Stand Up and Protest Against These Crimes Against Humanity!

Israel carried out a horrific, bloodthirsty massacre on Monday, May 14, murdering at least 58 Palestinians—including a 14-year-old boy—and wounding more than 2,700 at the border with Gaza. More Palestinian protesters were killed on this single day by the Israeli troops than in the seven previous weeks of protests at the Israel-Gaza border.

Who are these people who are being so viciously mowed down by killers armed with deadly weapons? These are human beings who have been locked down, for decades, in the open-air prison known as the Gaza Strip—caged in and even taunted by a wealthy, powerful state that is literally sitting on land that was unjustly stolen from them when that state was founded through a war of ethnic cleansing. People who are denied the ability to travel outside this prison to see relatives, pursue their studies and careers, participate in academic exchange programs. Humans who are under a sadistic blockade that is choking the life out of them. This means food shortages that hit especially the children hardest… electricity for only three hours a day… lack of drugs and medical resources that turn routine problems into life-threatening dangers… and much more. Well over two million people confined under these hellish conditions to just about 145 square miles.
These are the people who, for the last seven weeks, have been carrying out a courageous “Great March of Return”—going right up to the heavily militarized “border” (in reality, prison barbed wire) and demanding the right of return to the land stolen from Palestinians upon Israel’s establishment and an end to the life-crushing blockade. These are the people who were so ruthlessly murdered and seriously injured by the Israeli military—one of the most deadly high-tech armies in the world, thanks to billions in American aid—committing what one Amnesty International official said were “willful killings constituting war crimes.”
May 14 is the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Nakba—the “catastrophe” when 750,000 Palestinians were driven from their towns and villages by Zionist terror. In defiance of Israel’s reactionary violence, tens of thousands of Palestinians approached the border fence in protest. Journalist Sharif Abdel Kouddous, who was at the biggest protest site near Gaza City, described what he witnessed:
“There are thousands of people converging on the site—men, women and children. And it’s a really surreal scene. There are people gathering, mostly young men and boys, up near the border, where there is barbed wire, three sets of barbed wire. And you can see, just a couple of hundred yards away, Israeli soldiers, you know, under these canopies, on mounds of sand, sometimes in jeeps, and they are picking people off with—snipers are literally picking people off. I’ve seen people who weren’t even close to the fence being shot. Most of the people are being shot in the lower extremities, in their legs. I saw one person shot in the throat…“And what most people are doing, it’s just the very act of walking to the border. Some people go and place the Palestinian flag on the barbed wire. Some people do go and cut the wire and try and cross, saying that they are implementing the right of return themselves. But it’s also a way—you know, we have to remember that people are trapped in Gaza. There’s really no way out. Many people have never left the Strip, because all border crossings are closed to them, and they’re not allowed to leave. And so this is a way of pushing their bodies up against their confinement.” (Democracy Now, May 14)
All this bloodshed is openly supported by the rulers of the United States, who refused to even invoke some empty hypocritical words about urging “restraint” on Israel. The Trump/Pence White House blamed the protesters themselves for the massacre, pointing the finger at the Islamic fundamentalist group Hamas. The current dominant political leadership in Gaza and in the West Bank do not represent the fundamental interests of the Palestinian people and a liberating way forward (for analysis of Hamas and the overall political dynamics in the Middle East, see previous coverage at revcom.us, including here). But the reality is that the wave of Palestinian protests is an expression of yearnings of many among the masses of Palestinian people for real emancipation and an end to the horrors that have been inflicted upon them over and over again for the last seven decades. What Israel and its U.S. backers are trying to do is to violently extinguish these hopes for liberation.
This is made very clear by the deliberate choice of the gangsters now at the helm of U.S. imperialism, the Trump/Pence fascist regime, to have the celebration of the transfer of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14. This embassy move is a blatant, genocidal “fuck you” to the Palestinian people who have long and rightfully claimed Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state. It is an open declaration that the U.S. is more blatantly abandoning any pretense it is a “neutral broker” and is more openly backing Israel in further stepping up the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people. It is a move central to the agenda of the lunatic, end-times Armageddon-driven Christian fascists at the core of the Trump/Pence regime (see sidebar). At the same time, this embassy move—and what it means—is being hailed generally within the U.S. ruling class, including top Democratic leaders who crow that they are even more ardent supporters of Israel. The embassy move and Israel’s massacre today were concentrated expressions of the willingness and determination of the U.S. imperialists to carry out crimes on a massive scale, including perhaps war with Iran, to try and maintain their suffocating grip on the Middle East.
On May 14, as the Israeli troops were cold-bloodedly mass murdering Palestinians and maiming thousands of others, the U.S. godfathers and their Israeli assassins held their embassy opening ceremony just 50 miles away—complete with a video message from Trump declaring “The United States will always be a great friend of Israel” and two of the top Christian fascist evangelical figures flying in from the U.S. to give blessings. Behind all the pomp and smiles was the reality: these are blood-soaked ghouls and imperialist gangsters celebrating the hideous crimes they’ve committed—and renewing their pact to commit even greater crimes against humanity.
The whole made-in-hell-three-way marriage of Christian fascists, rabid Zionists, and “America First” global bullying is a product of and serves an empire built on slavery, genocide, vicious global exploitation and mass murder, torture, and countless unjust wars. There is a way to wrench something excruciatingly needed for humanity right now—it is organizing for, and hastening the moment when we can overthrow the system behind this. And in that light, right now building mass non-violent resistance aimed at driving out this fascist regime.
Wherever you are: speak out and act against these horrendous U.S.-Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people. Get outside now—join or call protests or get out on your campus or street corner, call this out for what it is, and organize people into the revolution.

Here's the real face of what the u.s. do around the world, and kind of world they have created. Why the fuck did they think it was a great idea to move the fucking u.s. embassy to Jerusalem ? Because they are fucking arrogant assholes who want to see the Palestinians wiped out. Read about this fucked up shit here .
The amerikkkan imperialists are once again gearing up for a war on an oil rich nation, Iran. The capitalist lackey media are shrieking about this "rogue state" and other sych bullshit, as if the u.s. is a force for actual good in the world. Well fuck the media and fuck the u.s.a.
