Cocaine, Proud Boys, & Fake News: On the Eve of the Demand Free Speech Rally
After a pathetic showing in San Francisco featuring the same line-up of who gives a fuck and sort-of well known liars like Jacob Wohl which didn’t even manage to produce a counter-protest and was besieged by infighting over the presence of Unite the Right speaker Baked Alaska, the organizers of the ‘Demand Free Speech‘ rally decided to take their demands to DC. Hoping to capitalize on the 4th of July celebrations and Trump’s dreams of a military parade, from the outset, it looked like the rally on July 6th would become the largest far-Right event since Unite the Right in Charlottesville in 2017.Numerous other Proud Boys, MAGA youtuber celebrities, and other luminaries who next year will probably have Patreons to fund their search for Bigfoot are also planned to speak, but needless to say the list is long, as probably half will never show up.

Socialism 2019: A Democratic Party operation
Democratic Party politics will be expressed in different forms throughout the weekend conference. Bhaskar Sunkara, the editor and publisher of Jacobin, will be featured at one panel to discuss his recently published book, A Socialist Manifesto. The specialty of Sunkara and of Jacobin is to rebrand “socialism” as a return to postwar social-democratic reformism, a utopian dream that poses no real threat to the right-wing, militarist politics of the Democratic Party.Sunkara’s role was recently summed up by New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, a supporter of Hillary Clinton. “The leaders of this nascent socialist movement are trying to channel people away from [radical politics],” she said after an interview with Sunkara. “People in the DSA, Bhaskar, they’re very responsible in not encouraging that sort of thing.”Sunday’s closing plenary is given over to Naomi Klein and Astra Taylor for their “Care and Repair: The Revolutionary, Democratic Power of a Global Green New Deal.” The “Green New Deal” has been taken up by large sections of the Democratic Party as a way of separating the fight against climate change from any opposition to the capitalist profit system.Foreign policy issues will be addressed by Ashley Smith, the former member of the ISO who has been a chief supporter of the US-backed regime change operation in Syria. Smith is scheduled to speak on “China and the US: Inter-Imperial Rivalry or Class Struggle and Solidarity?” Anand Gopal, a fellow in the International Security Program at the New America Foundation (NAF), a Washington, DC think tank with intimate state and business ties, will deliver “A Socialist View of the Arab Spring.”

Below are other fine militants who fought fascism and were subsequently smeared by their enemies.

Seems like the UK is just going to become a US lapdog.

The UK has been obediently following its master for decades.


Imagine being this triggered by someone misspoke a minor detail

I fucking hate those cameras. They pop up randomly without warning. It's turning this city into a dystopia when it was truly one of the last "free" cities in the US

Mfw everyone sort of ignores the headline about Britain seizing an Iranian tanker

Anglo Iranian oil gang

Fucking Anglos, they took a ship from the DPRK too, where is there worship of private property rights?

So are we heading for war or not? My heart says no, but my brain can't imagine Bolton and gang letting the Retarded Empire be cucked by upstart Iran

I don't believe so. Iranian war would be a massive undertaking requiring a high level of public support, at least initially. Their first attempt at casus belli was a failure, and this seizing of an Iranian tanker will be seen as nothing but desperate provocation (aside from shitlibs). My guess is they're trying to get Iran to do something shocking enough to inflame the public mood, but I have a hard time seeing that happening. They've been itching to fight a war with Iran for so long and so openly, there's literally nothing they can do now but drop even the slightest pretense they have at being some sort of humanitarian democracy, and they're not ready to do that yet. One of the main reasons for the relative stability of the West is the self-congratulatory narrative of the Enlightened Democratic West (TM), and the whole "best of bad options". Once this narrative is shattered, the horizon of possibility will open in a completely new way not seen since the early 20th century. They want to strengthen their position before that happens.

Weren't those run by public companies ? would that not be consistent of them since it's stealing from the public.

Honestly there's nothing wrong with saying that social identity effects perception of class.

that's not what intersectionality is though
