Left Circle Gripes: Racism
"The CIA did the alt right" is a lot more comforting than realizing that your neighbor you might talk to every day thinks that people with skin colors darker than the shade of freshly laid concrete are inferior and that's basically the cultural legacy and teachings that have been passed down to them.
oooh, shit, I didn't know Chief Best was black.
I hadn't realized that not only was a lesbian mayor gassing the gay neighborhood on the first day of pride, a black woman police of chief was leading it
you'll never get a better demonstration that getting the right "type" of people in positions of power who check off identity boxes is not the solution.
pol, violence, trump, guns
To the “nobody needs an AR15” crowd:
Shut up. Grow up. Arm yourselves now. I’m not even remotely joking. The wingnuts cheering Trump on have guns. The Neo-nazis have guns. The 🐷 in Minneapolis have guns. The III% have guns. You’re out of excuses. You can’t decry the systemic racism and brutal inhumanity of American policing while advocating for those same cops to enforce sweeping gun control.
"This is military grade"
-what does that even mean
-aircraft carriers are running Win98 so clearly lots of things are "military grade"
-If the US government said eating plutonium was bad I would Google it just to be super sure
"Some furry gave us 5 stars on their blog"
-A clear indicator of quality
-Furries make the internet go, an authority on technology
-Furries typically aren't feds
-I trust anyone 4chan hates
-idk they're fuzzy or something
Mildly disconcerting that Bookchin’s criticism of the 60s “New Left” is very applicable to certain corners of leftist activism today.
“Left unity” is a scam
So, lemme get this right. When fascists invade right-libertarian spaces under the guise of “free speech” leftists are more than happy to point out how bad that is, but when Stalinists, USSR apologists, China apologists, Juche wingnuts, and “liberals get the wall too” auth-left types invade leftist spaces, you have to tolerate them because “left unity”
Good job on the self-awareness there folks.
Broke: Calling people “comrade”
