Operation Meetinghouse (bombing of Tokyo in March 1945) is estimated to have killed 100,000 civilians. Overall the air raids on Japan (led by the United States although British involvement occurred on a much lesser scale) killed anywhere from 241,000 to 900,000 civilians (although most modern estimates place the number between 300,000 and 500,000).

The firebombing of Tokyo killed more people than either of the two nukes on their own.

Not to mention the thousands of German and Japanese civilians firebombed in World War II...

This article doesn't give a shit if they're actual leftists or not. They look like leftists to the writers of this article, and that's what they're trying to point out. If we just say 'oh they're not leftists it's not a big deal' it doesn't convince people that they really are unaffiliated with us.

I feel like you're missing the point here- not all radical leftists are transphobic assholes, but TERFs and certain other cis activists continue to drag leftists as a whole into the mud.

Was hoping this would be what it sounded like, not disappointed.

It doesn't have to be in our existing barbed-wire and cinder-block constructs, either.

It's not like it does them any good to be locked in a concrete hellhole for the rest of their life, either.
