Wandering the information superhighway, he came upon the last refuge of civilization, PoFo, the only forum on the internet ...

Politics_Observer wrote:Yet, I think there might be a few things we can learn from the commies. For example, what is fascism and how to fight it.
Politics_Observer wrote:Do our communist friends on the forum have suggestions on how to combat fascism through constructive non-violent means?
Politics_Observer wrote:In addition, communists seem to believe in the abolition of private property because it is their belief that private property eventually leads to slavery.

So melodramatic, as usual, Blackjack21.

The first attempt resulted in 23 Antifa types getting arrested and none of the "Unite the Right" people getting arrested. On the next outing, the mayor of Charlottesville ordered the police to stand down so that Antifa could attack the Unite the Right people without police intervention. The outcome was predictable. It was just a failure on a propaganda level, because people saw through the attempt to smear only the Unite the Right people and not the Antifa types initiating violence as suborned by the government. That a mentally ill guy ran over a fat chick walking in the middle of the street isn't something that is going to get people to draw broad conclusions.

Politics_Observer wrote:But from what I saw on the news, it was a bunch of Nazis that were being violent and used a car to commit a murder by running down demonstrators.
Politics_Observer wrote:Those were Nazis in Charlottesville and they were definitely the "bad guys."
Politics_Observer wrote:They argue that the capitalist class is well armed and willing to use violence and also cite how unarmed strikers in the past were gunned down by hired goons.
Politics_Observer wrote:But the Pinkertons murdered those striking factory workers in cold blood back in the day and those guys were the factory owner's hired goons. And their is no doubt that it was the workers and not the factory owners that build that factory and made it successful but at a high cost to them (them being the factory workers).
It was Antifa that initiated the violence. The car incident was a separate matter. James Fields was a mentally ill schizophrenic and drove his car into a crowd of people, apparently killing Heather Heyer in the process. You could certainly argue that Fields was a Nazi, but mentally ill people generally aren't fully within their faculties yet are allowed to roam free these days until they harm somebody.
Many of them are just under- or un-employed people that are more or less the victims of trade policies that favor outsourcing and the cheapest possible labor over domestic tranquility.

And when working people start getting heavily exploited and treated like replaceable spare parts and having to work 3 or 4 jobs to barely make ends meet, all the sudden crazy narcissistic people like Trump who says he has a solution and that "only he can solve the problems" suddenly are able to move in and easily manipulate these people who feel angry and hopeless and just downtrodden.
