Antifa


#101

Clocking people on the head seems to be a favourite Antifa M.O. This was a leftist protestor at a Portland demonstration who made the mistake of carrying an American flag – Antifa believe the flag itself is a fascist symbol. You can see several of these fine young f*ckers carrying cloth-wrapped clubs, and not afraid to use them on people “on their own side”. Though their other M.O. seems to be to slink off like pussies after a cowardly attack.

antifa became what they hate


#103

They didn’t become it – they always were it. Socialists and Fascists are two sides of the same coin, both strongly authoritarian and believing that ends justify means. Until people of good will on left and right disassociate themselves from these tyrannical elements, the middle ground will be lost to lowlife thugs.


#104

Exactly. Left and right are fairly meaningless distinctions compared to the similarities between socialist/fascist political systems where the state owns (or in some cases just regulates so rigidly that it defacto controls without nominal ownership) most of the assets in a society. Central control of economies doesn’t work no matter what the beliefs of the controller are. People are just collectively much smarter than the systems intended to control them and find ways to work around the systems of control to benefit themselves. At least in a relatively free market to benefit yourself necessitates the benefitting of others.

Benefitting yourself through benefitting others

When they’re not defending Pedo’s - Antifa target Tucker Carlson house, his petrified wife locks herself in the pantry and calls the police.

I hadn’t heard the chant in that video before, although Google tells me they used it at Berkely and elsewhere: “No border, no wall, no USA at all”. They really do want to dismantle the entire nation. :confused:

This craziness from the extreme leftists is only going to get worse… :neutral_face:

Going around beating up your elderly political opponents seems to be a terrible political strategy.

@johnp002 Just another day in the digit gulag - See if you or anyone, can guess who wrote this, without resorting to Google/Searching online!

Best of Luck! :dipso: May the best man win! :icon_cool:

When someone interprets as derogatory almost anything that is said about him (or about groups with whom he identifies) we conclude that he has inferiority feelings or low self-esteem. This tendency is pronounced among minority rights activists, whether or not they belong to the minority groups whose rights they defend. They are hypersensitive about the words used to designate minorities and about anything that is said concerning minorities.

[…]

They seem almost paranoid about anything that might suggest that any primitive culture is inferior to our own.

[…]

Those who are most sensitive about “politically incorrect” terminology are not the average black ghetto-dweller, Asian immigrant, abused woman or disabled person, but a minority of activists, many of whom do not even belong to any “oppressed” group but come from privileged strata of society. Political correctness has its stronghold among university professors, who have secure employment with comfortable salaries, and the majority of whom are heterosexual white males from middle-to upper-middle-class families.

[…]

Feminists are desperately anxious to prove that women are as strong and as capable as men. Clearly they are nagged by a fear that women may NOT be as strong and as capable as men.

[…]

Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not correspond with their real motives. They SAY they hate the West because it is warlike, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but where these same faults appear in socialist countries or in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or at best he GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; whereas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points out (and often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they appear in Western civilization.

[…]

He wants society to solve everyone’s problems for them, satisfy everyone’s needs for them, take care of them. He is not the sort of person who has an inner sense of confidence in his ability to solve his own problems and satisfy his own needs. The leftist is antagonistic to the concept of competition because, deep inside, he feels like a loser.

[…]

Leftists are antagonistic to genetic explanations of human abilities or behavior because such explanations tend to make some persons appear superior or inferior to others. Leftists prefer to give society the credit or blame for an individual’s ability or lack of it. Thus if a person is “inferior” it is not his fault, but society’s, because he has not been brought up properly.

[…]

Helping black people is not their real goal. Instead, race problems serve as an excuse for them to express their own hostility and frustrated need for power. In doing so they actually harm black people, because the activists’ hostile attitude toward the white majority tends to intensify race hatred.

[…]

Suppose you asked leftists to make a list of ALL the things that were wrong with society, and then suppose you instituted EVERY social change that they demanded. It is safe to say that within a couple of years the majority of leftists would find something new to complain about, some new social “evil” to correct because, once again, the leftist is motivated less by distress at society’s ills than by the need to satisfy his drive for power by imposing his solutions on society.

[…]

Leftism is collectivist; it seeks to bind together the entire world (both nature and the human race) into a unified whole. But this implies management of nature and of human life by organized society, and it requires advanced technology. You can’t have a united world without rapid transportation and communication, you can’t make all people love one another without sophisticated psychological techniques, you can’t have a “planned society” without the necessary technological base.

Sounds a bit like what Sowell says in Vision of the Anointed but more up to date. Is it from his latest book?


#114

Interesting but no. :-1:

The answer is: Ted Kaczynski aka the Unabomber

US authorities released his entire manifesto - Industrial Society and Its Future while at large, I believe in an attempt to find him and it worked, possibly his brother recognised the writings or writing style and this is how they were able to apprehend him.


#116

There is an excellent Netflix show about Ted called Manhunt: Unabomber.

It is fairly accurate, I believe one of the main detectives is a composite of several characters, but other that that it on the money. His manifesto was released to see if someone recognised the ideas.

What was done to that man was inexcusable, that he went insane is no surprise.

Absolute scumbags. The Portland major needs to be removed from office immediately.

The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.

This appears to be a very well timed and tactical move, there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

If ANTIFA are ear marked and classified as a Terroist group, then;

Is ANTIFA now fair game for the US military, anytime anyplace in the world, including all their assets and support networks?

Does this classification put ANTIFA in the “enemy combatant” category?

Does this draw in for example social media platforms into the same category, if they “knowingly” continue allowing ANTIFA retain their content on their platforms or use platforms for comms to organise riots and attacks on the US now or in the past?

Does it also require US allies around the world to both recognise and behave accordingly toward ANTIFA in their respective countries?

Does this set the stage for further mass arrests but on a scale that is far greater and even more global in reach therefore very public than anything thus far?

“Are you, or have you ever been, a member of ANTIFA?”
