Eyes Left Podcast: Demystifying Contemporary Fascism in the Wake of Christchurch

I decided to check back with this podcast since I haven't listened to them in quite some time and came across this particular episode. Well worth listening to, especially if you're a fan of Abby Martin, Empire Files, etc.

Anyway...this sort of thing has been going on for some time, for instance:

It probably goes back even further than that, but one thing I remember quite vividly, was that many posters online shouted buzzwords used in his manifesto repeatedly. Particularly, "Cultural Marxism" was a popular one used by rightist reactionaries to piss in the pool of any discussion being had about any issue. At all. Today, that term is "SJW".

Prysner's broadcast partner rightly points out that all of this is a direct result of imperialist action and capitalism. After all, you can't have one without the other.

This kind of shit will continue either until the biosphere dies or until capitalism (and with it, imperialism) are overthrown. Guess which one is far more likely at this point, given the brazen idiocy of our 'elected' officials.

Modern education is little more than toeing the line for the capitalist pigs.

Guerrilla Liberalism won't liberate the US or the world from the iron fist of capital.

"Make dirt, not war." eyo

but I vaguely remember "cultural Marxism". It was used for about a week by about ten people and referred to nothing. The SJW menace however is real. It is a malicious insanity that is trying to become an existential threat to our society.

There are certainly problems, but the far-right threat is far more pervasive. The whole Ess Jay Dubya bullshit just acts as a smokescreen for actual racist motherfuckers.

One thing I'm getting really sick of is the far-right referring to these morons as 'far-left' when their behavior indicates Bush-era right-wing ideology (for instance, their rehabilitation of Bush and his goons by these assholes).

Either way, both groups are reactionary mirror images of one another and should be treated as such.

@The Aspie Corner
though they self-proclaim as on the left and conservatives and "normies" (people who are apolitical and assume that that makes them slightly right of center, though they are actually well to the left of almost all American politicians) misidentify them. Our national passtime is no longer baseball, it's false flag.

All because capitalists are always chomping at the bit to get at cheap labor and resources to remain profitable.
