israeli propaganda

kevin, i hope you make immediate efforts for the voices of palestinians to be heard on risk. no excuse for the conflation of fourth of july and the iron dome with no context for violent settler colonialism carried about by israel. no excuse for a story about an ice cream date being interrupted without any mention of the violent interruption of whole palestinian communities being destroyed by israel.

9/25: more pathetic bourgeois israeli propaganda demonizing palestinian children and exonerating “scared”, violent, fake socialist zionists. should be noted the episode referenced above was released during intensified violent conflict in may 2021, this episode coming the same week the US approved 2 billion for israel’s war machine on arabs. be BETTER kevin, don’t make a throw away offers for arabs to email u immediately after glorifying their oppressors. stop being a tool of imperialism.

Storytelling doesn’t get much better than this!

I’ve had to remove my jaw from the floor many times
