The state of the left right now is so sad and scary. The lack of organizations that can teach people collective action and organize outside of a liberal framework is tangible. I worry it causing such a rise in political active fascists with such a small rise in the left.

Known as "Lady Death," Lyudmila Pavlichenko became one of the most famous and heroic Soviet women ever. She defied gender expectations by serving as a sniper on the front line during The Great Patriotic War against fascism. Watch Lady Izdihar explain why, despite her status as a Soviet and anti-fascist legend, when Pavlichenko traveled to the US, her contribution was overshadowed by misogyny.

“The MV Louise Michel is a former French Navy boat we’ve customized to perform search and rescue. Measuring 30 meters in length and capable of up to 28 knots, she was bought with proceeds from the sale of Banksy artwork - who then decorated her with a fire extinguisher. She is operated and crewed by a team of activist rescue professionals drawn from across Europe. Named after the French anarchist Louise Michel, she aims to combine sea rescue with the principles of #feminism, #antiracism and #antifascism. She runs on a flat hierarchy and a #vegan diet.”

Today in Labor History September 15, 1931: Sailors at Invergordon, Scotland, mutinied, causing a panic on the London Stock Exchange and ultimately forcing England off the gold standard. The sailors mutinied primarily over a 25% cut for the rank and file. They sang “The Red Flag” and refused orders. Order was restored without bloodshed, with the pay cut reduced to 10%. One of the mutiny leaders later defected to the USSR, where he was imprisoned in the gulags as a British spy. Another mutiny leader later commanded the British Battalion of the antifascist International Brigades, fighting in the Spanish Civil War.

Read "Why I Write" by George Orwell...

I never want to hear a certain group of people use Orwellian terms ever again.

#books #Novels #leftism #antifascism #Bookstodon

Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism, as I understand it. It seems to me nonsense, in a period like our own, to think that one can avoid writing of such subjects. Everyone writes of them in one guise or another. It is simply a question of which side one takes and what...
The British ruling class were not altogether wrong in thinking that Fascism was on their side. It is a fact that any rich man, unless he is a Jew, has less to fear from Fascism than from either Communism or democratic Socialism. One ought never to forget this, for nearly the whole German and Italian propaganda is designed to cover it up.
What this war has demonstrated is that private capitalism — that is, an economic system in which land, factories, mines and transport are owned privately and operated solely for profit — does not work. It cannot deliver the goods. This fact had been known to millions of people for years past, but nothing ever came of it, because there was no real urge from below to alter the system, and those at the top had trained themselves to be impenetrably stupid on just this point.
It is not certain that Socialism is in all ways superior to capitalism, but it is certain that, unlike capitalism, it can solve the problems of production and consumption. At normal times a capitalist economy can never consume all that it produces, so that there is always a wasted surplus (wheat burned in furnaces, herrings dumped back into the sea etc., etc.) and always unemployment.

The Nazis are coming even stronger in the USA. It's becoming serious. Shit I told my dad pre #Trump. That #Bannon is a white supremacist. They didn't believe me, voted for Trump (we haven't spoken since) - now look at the country.

My dad. A #history buff, has an English degree, worked for the US government. I don't get it.

We fought #Nazis so hard in #WWII (my mom's dad fought in that, navigating a B-17 over Germany).

And #Germany now has SUPER strong anti-Nazi rules now- FOR GOOD REASON. Not in the #USA. But #hate speech isn't free speech.

The #racists and #eugenicists in the USA- #fearmongering, a coming #recession (if we're not already in one) - that's exactly when things slide into #fascism. The decline is here. The #MAGA folks are #complicit with white supremacy.

The USA like this isn't #sustainable for 100 years. Maybe not even 40, or 20.

Just be ready to fight Nazis and #fascists.

Today in Labor History August 31, 1933: Italian American labor organizer and socialist, Giovanni Pippan, was murdered during his campaign to organize the Italian bread wagon drivers of Chicago. In 1921, he was beaten by fascists in Albona, Italy. The workers of the region rose up, occupied all the mines, and declared the Albona Republic. They organized their own government and “red guard” to protect themselves from law enforcement. They managed the mines by themselves with the support of a section of farmers. 1 month later, the republic was violently crushed by the state. For his role, Pippan was threatened with death by local fascists and fled to the U.S. There, he helped organize the silk workers of Patterson, New Jersey; participated in the organization and defense of Sacco and Vanzetti; and fought against fascist elements within the Italian-American community.

Being antifascist, when it comes down to it, to some people just means: being against Nazis. It doesn’t necessarily mean being against Nazi ideology or supporting (all!) those fascists harm.
It seems to me it wasn’t always this way. Antifascism also being a lifestyle has led to this: the movement partly solely serves itself.
I say partly, because this does certainly not apply to every antifascist.

This will be old hat to a lot of you but it's super simple:

Fascism is not politics. Fascism is a statement of murderous intent that you've been taught to think of as a political formation by? A society that embraces a significant amount of fascist ideology, from its very inception, for the purpose of what? Yes, doing capitalism for the enrichment of a small number of very wealthy people who "own" all our (as a species) shit.

If I went around, saying "I will kill you" or "someone should kill you" to every person I didn't like, they'd lock my ass up eventually. But if you run around saying "we need to decide if people LIKE you should exist" that's politics? My puckered asshole that is.

So spreading fascist ideology, and advocating for fascist political solutions and organizations are absolutely not a question of speech rights, personal opinions, or political advocacy at all; any more than I have a right to found the Murder Party around my purely hypothetical desire to merc billionaires through the use of increasingly elaborate mechanical traps, for sport and entertainment in a new society built around a non-secular religion where the deity looks suspiciously like me.

Once you understand that fascism isn't politics, it's a statement of intent to commit violence, the question of someone's "right" to be a fascist, falls entirely away. And if you were in fact someone who had good reasons to actively FEAR being the target of that fascist intent to commit violence and murder, that would be something very easy for you to understand, but not always that easy to express. If this idea is utterly alien to you, it's because you haven't ever had to ask yourself if the nazi was serious about exterminating you yet, in a world where you're not allowed to fight back.

Bitch is good at words tho, so here ya go.

Watch for the crypto-fascist two step.

How it works is that one of these shit tier strasserist influencers fronting a left wing image, will post some blatantly fascist propaganda, while trying to couch it as speaking truth to power. They have to be blatant, because they're trying (for money) to pull their audience to reactionary positions, on behalf of rich fascists. So they'll say it, and a whole bunch of people will start yelling "wait that's fascist nonsense" but a whole bunch of their little ballsacks will start engaging those people, and quickly it will devolve into a huge online fight anyone who isn't a weird extremely online mutant, will avoid like the plague.

This will then be followed up, usually the very next day, with that same influencer dropping some extremely yomi-layer zero criticism of an easy target in our media; some corrupt ass politician, cop, or journalist - someone with no integrity, or credibility, or fundamental honestly; it used to be Neera Tanden, but you can think of a ton of examples. This pretty much amounts to racking up easy points to "left wash" the fascist shit they just said the day before; because they will be mass retweeted and a whole bunch of people will assume this criticism is from the left, and knowing that the target is a piece of shit, reinforce their idea that "of course these guys are on the left."

If it gets bad enough, the crypto-fascist influencer will add a THIRD step, which usually involves suckering some silly fanboy "leftist" with bad fucking fundamentals, into having them on their podcast to talk about again, another unrelated, but low-hanging fruit subjects - "bankers are bad, forever wars suck, holy shit is Taylor Lorenz a hard person to like, and let's talk about why Joe Manchin is corrupt..."

These folks know what they're doing; they're keeping a scoresheet of where they stand in the perception of people operating online in this discourse, and they're working to stay obfuscated for as long as possible, all while pumping out reactionary ideology for their wealthy masters. The crypto-fascist two step, is a very successful part of that obfuscation.

He faced execution by garroting, but was, instead, sentenced to 20 years. Franco released him after three years, supposedly because of his mother’s plea for his release. He went on to found Cienfuegos Press, The Free-Winged Eagle and The Hastings Trawler. In 2006, he created the online Anarchist Film Channel.

Today in Labor History August 10, 1923: Italian-American anarchist and IWW organizer Carlo Tresca was arrested in the United States on the charge of publishing anti-fascist literature. Tresca opposed fascism, Stalinism and mafia-infiltration of unions. He was assassinated in 1943. Some believe the Soviets killed him in retaliation for his criticism of Stalin. The most recent research suggests it was the Bonanno crime family, in response to his criticism of the mafia and Mussolini. Tresca wrote two books. His autobiography was published posthumously in 2003. He also wrote a book in Italian, “L'attentato a Mussolini ovvero il segreto di Pulcinella.”

You could be like Ksenia, but instead you playing... usually in my mentions, and often concerning subjects you don't actually understand but can repeat several NBC nightly news talking points about.

Everyday antifascism is a real thing mates; we come after them on all fronts, in all ways, from all vectors of society who ain't fascist - and they will eventually crumble. You can buy a lotta things, but you can't buy love, loyalty, or obedience. And some of us got that stubborn mule inside that won't let us bow down to a pack of yelling nazis.

So look, this is basic as bricks, "I used Wikipedia" level history; and I think the person is altogether too kind to Hindenburg, who very much made it clear the only thing he hated more than Hitler's personality was the entire German left, but... when I tell you they have never told you the truth in mainstream discourse, about how Nazism happened in Germany, and that it wasn't a magic man who cast a spell over a people against the whims of its establishment, like YOUR establishment has always told you. This is what I mean.

https://allthatsinteresting.com/hitlers-rise-to-power

A very simple case study of one tinhorn Nazi, and three "Very Serious PeopleTM" conservatives, who were each instrumental to putting Hitler in power. There are definitely better sources than this rough outline, and there were definitely more rich and respected people that helped the Nazis take control, but this covers the essential point - they didn't "seize" power, they were given it, by rich and powerful people who hate the masses, the left, and sharing.

Today in Labor History July 14, 1912: Folk singer Woody Guthrie was born. During World War II, he wrote the song "Talking Hitler's Head Off Blues." Around this time, he also painted THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS on his guitar. He saw fascism as a “form of economic exploitation similar to slavery.” During the Great Depression, he romanticized the deeds of outlaws like Jesse James and Pretty Boy Floyd as legitimate acts of social responsibility and protest against those who were responsible for the worsening social and economic conditions of working class people.

TL;DR: going back to #ArabSpring, fascists like Putin have been intentionally stoking various ongoing refugee crises, such as the one in #Syria, and most such crises (including the situation in Syria) have ultimately been rooted in the famines, droughts, heat waves, and desertification of farmland caused by #ClimateChange. The fascists have then used the refugee crises stoked by the fascists themselves in order to spread anti-immigrant, anti-refugee fascist ideology.

#AntiFascism must include a push for environmental and ecological justice if it is to succeed against fascism.

My blog post on Twitter is up! I wanted to briefly talk about Twitter's history, using and leaving Twitter, and to talk about the fediverse some too.

@auschwitzmuseum @IAmDannyBoling Never forget. This is why we have to stay vigilant and fight the rising tide of fascism and antisemitism in all its forms.

Ugh, Lina got 5 years and 3 months in prison for beating up poor, defenseless Nazis. The other defendants got between 27 and 39 months. She’s already been in police custody for 2.5 years, so presumably that’ll at least factor in as time served.

Drag Event Defended from Proud Boys in Portage, MI

"Debating love-based approaches to handling bigots is best done when not immediately physically defending a queer event from bigots who don’t tolerate queer existence."

"... a scuffle broke out, with proud boys throwing the first punches, but being handily dealt with in return. ... one of the proud boys was cuffed and taken away. No antifascists were detained or arrested"
