Anarchism

Literally no difference

Literally no difference

But you forgot about the narrative where everyone on the left doesn't have a job and just destroys small businesses and lights trashcans on fire all day!

I sent this to my friend saying "you on the right"; he replied a few seconds later with "yes, I agree with him". I weep.

There's a group of people who want to kill anyone not like them. Fascists. Then there is a group that says that action isn't ok, and trying to stop facists. Anti-facists.

Naturally, when confronting a group with the desire to kill others. They don't just go away because you ask nice and have valid arguments. There will probably have to be some physical force, violence involved. In a few rare cases, they go away because they saw the error of their ways. More than likely it's because the effort it takes to kill people does not pay off.

What we have here is psychopaths who want to kill people, the majority of people. Then there is a group that only wants to neutralize these psychopaths. There's a massive difference there.

Anyone claiming they can't tell the difference here inevitably results in empowering psychopathic aggressors, via passivity and compliance through silence. Fascists know people are sacred to act against them. Leveraging this kind of doubt to attempt to confuse people and prevent counter action. Motives for violence make all the difference.

Yes, violence may be utilized by both sides. Self preservation and defense is by no means, "the same thing," as seeking out and killing people solely for being different.

One is an aggressor sneaking violence. The other is sneaking to stop the violence the aggressor is starting. That's the difference.

I thought they stopped being fascist in the 70s.

Fuck the police.

Remember: ACAB

No, all cops are bastards unconditionally. Even when they do good things, they're part of an institution built on suppression.

I'm in a School in a city near Barcelona. Firefighters here are working with people, and with people I mean, families, elders, kids, people with disabilities. All of us.

Meanwhile, policía Nacional and Guardia Civil (military force/police) are raiding in schools and other centers of votation.

More than 300 hundred injuried people, at least 3 of them badly. In my school we are wait them since 5a.m. and now it's almost 4p.m.

Even are attacking the "regional police" here in Catalonia (Mossos d'Escuadra).

It's not a third world war, but it's democracy falling, thats for sure.

Edit: most people in other regions of Spain are fine with this. "Go for them" is their mantra this days.

Edit 2: aerial space is close, not planes (capitalism must prevale) and helicopters from police mention earlier.

Makes you wonder why "serve and protect" is virtually monopolized by police, eh?

Spanish cops have started using violence against firefighters. This is as bizarre as it is shocking and shameful.

Amusingly there is now footage of Catalan police stepping in to try to protect protesters from Spanish police violence.

NACAB (at least, not all the time!)

They're certainly self aware.

Anarchism means no rulers, not no rules.

Maybe /sub/anarchy101 or the anarchist faq would be relevant for you if you wanna know what anarchism is.

Nope, those are CRS (a French unit of cops), they have labels on their back. Edit : nope, it's shopped, it's a letter and a digit.

Hey Alt-Right, Why Do You Wear That Mask?

Hey Alt-Right, Why Do You Wear That Mask?

Nah man. sections of white working class trump supporters in regions like the rustbelt and appalachia are definitely among the worst affected by capitalism but "alt-right" refers to a very specific set of people, often urban educated white middle to upper class kids that practically live on the internet. Richard Spencer and edgy youtube gamers aren't racist because they're poor and tired of neoliberalism, they're straight up reactionaries that ought to be fought

This was posted on /sub/chapotraphouse a while back and I think there was some interesting discussion there.

Some good points that came up were:

you don't have to be poor to be negatively affected by capitalism, patriarchy and other social relations there's still personal responsibility since not everyone who suffers from alienation becomes a fascist, alienation is a necessary condition but not a sufficient cause for fascism to develop there is no rigid definition of the alt right, and therefore we don't know what their economic status is, but odds are the assertion they are all upper middle class is false. An example of someone who doesn't fit that demographic is James Alex Fields Jr. who was from a single parent family and was enlisted in the military.

This mirrors the original Nazi party, whilst they did have a strong middle class base of support they also drew in supporters from the ranks of the rural peasantry who had suffered under hyperinflation and the depression. That was one of the groups they were most popular with. Groups like the SA drew on ex-enlisted military, just like other rightwing paramilitaries (like the Freikorps) did. Those were not economically privileged either.

If you're going to defeat fascism permanently you have to understand what it is and why it arises. It's easy to just say it's reactionary wealthy people, but where is the proof? It's more complicated than that.

There's no such thing as an "alt left" lol

That photo is 100% backwards. They use a mask of "economic anxiety" to poorly attempt to hide their racist homophobic Nazi dipshit faces.

The riot cops grabbed her by her hair and threw her onto the pavement. They did more damage to her than she did to that Nazi. Not to disparage her, because her actions are absolutely admirable, but she is pretty small and it really didn't seem like she hurt him much if at all. And she's the one being charged over this.

Say it with me folks:

MONOPOLY ON LEGITIMATE USE OF VIOLENCE

Violent protest is admirable and ok now? Did you expect the officers and everyone around to applaud? They stopped someone from being violent in a situation where violence can escalate out of control very quickly. Get some perspective instead of advocating for a batterer to go free because her ideas and yours are the same.

McCarthyist witch hunts are not a thing of the past! Remember, this is a charge from the protest where multiple people were stabbed by neo-nazis who have not been arrested for the attempted murders: https://torchantifa.org/?p=568

My favorite take on Charlottesville and dealing with racists, so far. Some people need it spelled out for them.

As someone that has former white supremacists in the family, this is very true. There were times where I didn't pass the carrots because I refused to speak to my sister and there were times some of us had to leave the main family gathering to straighten some shit out on the side.

Ten years later, fash ink is covered and redesigned and my sister is fostering children of color and integrating them into our larger family. My sister and brother-in-law are better for it and have better, more stable lives for raising their natural and adopted children.

This makes me happy.

Once in a while you have to resort to clocking cousin Randal right in the face too, though.

What's this feeling? ...Is this what reading good news feels like?

7 days ago /sub/the_donald mods stickied the Charlottesville event. They actively promoted an event where 19 people were injured and 1 of our comrades was killed. Will the Reddit admins retroactively ban /sub/the_donald or will they continue to enable racist murders?

This is not an isolated incident.

In June 2015, Dylann Roof was inspired by the “hate facts” posted on Daily Stormer and Council of Conservative Citizens to murder nine people at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

In July 2015, John Russell Houser, a far-right former bar owner, shot and killed two people and injured nine others before committing suicide in a Lafayette, LA movie theater which was playing Trainwreck, due to its feminist themes and characters, as well as its lead actor's Jewish background. Houser was said to have been a misogynist and praised the actions of Adolf Hitler on online message boards.

In November of 2015, a group of well-armed 4chan regulars attended a Black Lives Matter camp in Minneapolis, harassing them with racial slurs. They opened fire on activists attempting to chase them out when they returned a second night, wounding five.

An antifascist protester of Milo Yiannopolous was shot in stomach on Inauguration Day by Elizabeth Hakoana, who came to the protest with her husband, who planned to “crack skulls” of the “snowflakes” at the event and provoke a reaction to justify shooting someone.

Later in January, Alexandre Bisonette, a supporter of Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen, opened fire on a Quebec City Islamic Culutral Center, killing six.

In February, a white U.S. Navy veteran, Adam Purinton, 51, killed an Indian engineer, wounded his Indian co-worker, and shot a man who tried to stop the murder at a bar in Olathe, KS while yelling "get out of my country."

In March, James Jackson, a subscriber of Alt Right Youtube channels, traveled from Baltimore to New York with the sole purpose of murdering a black person at random. He stabbed Timothy Caughman, killing him.

Sean Christopher Urbanski, a University of Maryland student and member of online alt-right facebook groups, randomly stabbed to death black Army Officer Richard Collins III in Baltimore.

A man in Portland, OR stabbed 3 people, killing 2, who intervened to tell him to stop making racist remarks to muslim women on a light rail train.

Anthony Robert Hammond hacked a random black man with a machete after yelling racial slurs at numerous people in Clearlake, CA in May.

Jimmy Kramer, a 20 year old Native American, was run over during his birthday party in Washington state by a man and woman in a large pickup truck who first circled the party yelling racial slurs and taunts at the group from inside the truck. Kramer died and his friend was hospitalized.

T_D is going absolutely apeshit right now.

In the last few hours I've seen:

The police were working with antifa

The police were hired by antifa

The attack didn't actually happen and the video was fake.

The attack was a false-flag attack carried out by [insert favorite government agency here]

This technically doesn't fit the legal requirements for first degree murder so he should go free.

He did it but he only did it because he was scared.

He was actually a member of antifa.

He was actually a BLM person.

The counter-demonstrators themselves were coordinated/sponsored/proposed by Soros.

The counter-demonstration themselves were coordinated/sponsored/proposed by [insert favorite government agency]

There were conservatives there but all the people doing the nazi stuff were actually antifa/cops/leftists who wanted to start a fight between the "real conservatives" and antifa.

This is bonkers even by T_D standards.

EDIT: Yes, I'm aware this is pretty much standard fare for the rebranded white nationalism. They are excellent at turning out truly insane conspiracy theories. I am commenting that it seems like they're in a frenzy of self-denial and so are engaging in it even more so than they usually do.

EDIT EDIT:

The ACLU is helping....someone somehow. Not clear on that.

The governor is "in bed" with antifa.

The state government is "in bed" with antifa.

The cops moved against the rebranded white nationalism so they are responsible for the car attack (not sure how that works).

And people claim right-wing violence is over-publicized...

for anyone who hasn't been paying attention, they're acting normally.

Reminder that our criminal justice system is broken.

Kenneth Young was part of consecutive armed robberies, while this "Bling Ring" were breaking and entering, and stealing. The sentencing is not fair either way, he shouldn't have gotten the sentence that he has (Kenneth Y.), but the posts here suggests his crime was far less sever, which it wasn't.

Did some research.

None of the Bling Ring had priors other than the burglary, so that's a lie.

And Kenneth went on 4 armed robberies with that drug dealer. So that's a lie.

Still a fucked up situation though.

I found an article on it. 8 armed robberies is not just "came out with $600", however the sentence for Young is still unreasonable and the Bling Ring should be sentenced for much more than they did, but the caption of Young is somewhat misleading.

cherry picking examples is not a good way to prove this

Also Reddit, being Reddit is going on about how they're the opressed ones and he's against "freeze peach" again
