A friend of mine that I’ve known for maybe 20 freakin years was losing it today going off on Palestinians as “those fucking terrorists” and honestly it blew my mind that this line suddenly showed up and we’d never crossed it before.

He was clear that he didn’t want our Israel/Palestine disagreement to interfere with our friendship, and I told him that I will cut anyone from my life who’s out here supporting genocide, ethnic cleansing, or fascism.

I ain’t fuckin around post-pandemic. I went a whole year by myself. I’ll cut everyone out.
