Jose Maria Sison – Duterte is the best recruiter and best transport and supply officer
The Filipino people and the revolutionary forces led by the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) have a lot to thank Duterte for. Though unwittingly, like the tyrant Marcos in his own time, Duterte has become the best recruiter and the best transport and supply officer of the New People’s Army (NPA).As the best recruiter of the NPA, Duterte has driven so many people to join the NPA by running a tyrannical, treasonous, mass murdering, plundering and inflation-generating regime. The people have no choice but to fight such an evil regime.By terminating the peace negotiations, he compels the armed revolutionary movement to concentrate on intensifying the people’s war and cast away any illusion that this regime of terror and greed can negotiate social, economic and political reforms to address the roots of the armed conflict in order to achieve a just and lasting peace.The more direct kind of assistance that Duterte gives to the armed revolution is splitting up his military and police forces into two parts, one part for psywar and mass intimidation and the other part for blind and deaf armed offensives against the people.

The Tory Crisis That Dare Not Speak Its Name
On Monday night, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg tweeted that the band of MPs who visited Theresa May for an emergency meeting had taken to calling themselves “Grand Wizards.” Twitter instantly pointed out that the term is used by the Ku Klux Klan. Even former Tory chancellor George Osborne asked, “I’m sorry, is this for real?” But there was little blowback apart from Twitter consternation, which passed quickly. On Radio 4’s Today, a morning political program, a presenter used the term “Grand Wizards” casually on Wednesday, with no reference to its Klan links. That the Tory group didn’t know is entirely unlikely: more likely they didn’t realize the name would leak to the press.On Tuesday afternoon, at a meeting of the Conservative-aligned, Bruges Group, MP Suella Braverman told an emergency meeting on Brexit, “We are engaged in a war against cultural Marxism” and warned about free speech at universities in the UK.

Get Up and Get Going: How to Form a Group
Becoming radicalized in a small town by yourself, seemingly in the “middle of nowhere,” can often be one of the most difficult experiences you may ever encounter. But even harder than the feeling of being adrift can been the desperation of not know how to go about attempting to make the leap from being just an individual with a set of ideas to someone that is part of a movement and specifically, a group of people who are organized in a set area, acting in concert, with that movement.

THe tories have had this massive rod called "Europe" sticking into their collective bums since Enoch Powell campaigned against it in the EEA referendum. It's hard to explain to you without just throwing books or wiki pages at you. Sufficed to say, if brexit doesn't happen or is too soft, the tories will fucking implode.

Its not a single issue party. They are radical right wing hyper-Christians who went to bible schools in South Carolina.They are very against gay marriage and abortion. Also they are an ethno-nationalist party and their ethnic group won't disappear overnight.

Once unification happens they will still have supporters in the North. Definitely older people but hopefully the young ones will move away from them. If they are smart they could drop the Unionism thing and be a all-Ireland far right party and pick up some votes in the 26 counties.
