Will the Neocons Bait, Turn, Switch, and Purge the Antifa/SJWs While Suppressing the Lumpenproletariat? 2

This is important stuff.

I recently put a couple of questions concerning current events to a well-known intellectual historian, a Jewish man whose parents fled Hungary during the rise of Hitler, and who is a specialist in the history of 20th-century totalitarian movements.  His responses confirmed my suspicion that both the bizarre de facto alliance of the far-left, liberals, neocons, and Bush Republicans which has emerged in opposition to the Trumpists, and the seeming acquiescence of the state to both the iconoclasm spree of the far left and the lumpenproletarian insurrection, represents efforts by the capitalist class, the new clerisy, and the Deep State to weaponize both the far left and the insurrectionists against the Trumpists, subsequently purging or co-opting both, while restoring neocon dominance of the military-industrial-intelligence complex. In other words, it’s all about putting the neocons back in charge of US foreign policy. Remember that the neocons started out as Trots, and this is exactly how Bolshies do things.

Cops in Riot Gear Stormed a Violin Vigil for Elijah McClain 1

The Cut

On Saturday, activists in Aurora, Colorado, convened for a peaceful rally and march to demand justice for Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old Black man who died after a brutal arrest by local police last August. The event included a violin vigil, a nod to the fact that McClain was an accomplished violinist who was known for spending his lunch breaks putting on concerts for the cats and dogs at a community animal shelter. Footage from the event shows a group of quiet participants, most of them socially distanced, holding signs and observing as a few violinists perform at dusk — and then the arrival of a group of officers in riot gear, charging into the crowd. According to attendees, the police went on to deploy pepper spray and use physical force.

Northam extends state of emergency in Richmond, citing ‘civil unrest’; Reply

Ironically, Virginia has a Democratic government that recently passed a bunch of “woke” legislation but is ranked 51st in the country, below the other 49 states and Washington, D.C, on the issue of workers’ rights. Thanks to the northern Virginia suburbs, Virginia is becoming the California of the East Coast.

Gov. Ralph Northam on Monday quietly signed an executive order extending a state of emergency declaration in Richmond, citing “civil unrest” following weeks of protests that have resulted in violent clashes between demonstrators and police.

The extension came at the request of Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, who said in a Monday letter to the governor that the city has “minimum funding to cover costs” tied to the response, and that “the bandwidth of our personnel will reach its limit.”

Nothing Succeeds Like Secession: Suggested Demands for CHOP From a Friendly Panarchist Ally Reply

Exile in Happy Valley

I have always been fascinated by secessionist movements. It goes back to my childhood love of maps, flags and geography. I use to spend hours poring over atlases and fixating on the strange autonomous zones that only existed inside fluid borders drawn in dotted lines. Strange places no American ever spoke of, with exotic names like Transnistria, Gaza, Nagorno-Karabakh, and Western Sahara. I would eventually grow into a commie, Third World, war nerd who fastidiously followed and supported these esoteric independence movements from afar.

Glenn Loury: ‘We’re Being Swept Along by Hysteria’ About Racism in America Reply

A somewhat interesting interview with a leading black conservative.

I would be inclined to argue that, at present, substantial sectors of the capitalist class (including some major capitalist entities) along with their allies in the new clerisy/new class that dominates the “ideas industries” are fueling anti-racism hysteria in order to deflect attention away from the class-based nature of the insurrection. They do this because a race war is less antithetical to their interests than a class war. However, contra the Marxists and left-anarchists, it doesn’t stop at class either. Even a class war is more co-optable than a direct war against the state itself.

All of this follows an easily identifiable pattern in US history.

Protest at Lee Monument

Police and protesters clashed once again at the Lee monument on Friday night, with chemical irritants used to clear the scene and six arrests made in the aftermath.

That confrontation, which happened between 10 and 11 p.m., was followed by officers clearing the scene. Protesters then returned to their original position in what they have deemed Marcus-David Peters Circle for the remainder of the night.

The Next Stage of the Insurgency? Reply

Already we have seen the destruction of enemy military bases, military vehicles, and star chambers, the direct expropriation of ruling class assets, the assassination of enemy troops, and demands for the releases of incarcerated insurgents. What would be the next stage? When will low-grade fourth-generation warfare be increased to high-grade?

The Assault of Ayacucho prison was an incident in the Peruvian city of Ayacucho, also known as Huamanga, on March 2, 1982. A group of 150 armed terrorists, members of the Sendero Luminoso, or Shining Path, staged simultaneous assaults on two local police stations before staging an assault on the prison, resulting in the release of 255 inmates. After a 5-hour battle, 16 people, including two prison guards, were dead and 12 people were wounded.

The Suicide of the Left Reply

I have warned that the present wave of culture war vandalism and arson could quite possibly provoke a right-wing, “law and order” backlash. Bill Lind, the leading theorist of fourth generation warfare, seems to agree. Although I think Lind is discounting or ignoring the massive demographic, cultural, generational, economic, and other changes that have happened in recent years.

By William S. Lind

Traditional Right

The cultural Marxists think they are riding high. Thousands of kids are demonstrating for “Black Lives Matter”. The Left’s long-running war on police is surging as panicked politicians throw the cops under the bus. Not only Confederate war memorials but those to Union forces as well, along with the World War ll memorial in the Washington mall, are desecrated. A commune is declared in a six-block area in Seattle. Anyone in the Establishment who offends in the slightest, most trivial way against Political Correctness is off to the guillotine. The Terror is again in full swing and the Jacobins are elated.

What is really happening here is not the triumph of the Left, but its suicide.

As I wrote in my last column, the young demonstrators are out there just to be out there, after two months of confinement, “social distancing”, masks, etc. have left them bored out of their skulls. Their commitment to “Black Lives Matter” (except to other blacks, who kill each other like flies) is a mile wide and an inch deep. The “cause” could as easily be vegetable rights, Save the Cockroaches, or banning discrimination against bovine flatulence. Anything that justifies their getting together in large numbers and making trouble works for them.

Silence of the Swine: Abolish the Police and Bring Back the Panthers 2

By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit

Exile in Happy Valley

One thing that has become crystal fucking clear to any sane sentient creature with a pulse who has paid attention to current events over the last month is the fact that America’s cherished fascist institution known as the police is completely and totally fucking useless to working class people. By night, our self-flagellating martyrs in blue become harder to find than Waldo as they’re outnumbered by the most irate of the citizenry they’ve wronged, who’ve turned their rage inward towards defenseless small business’ while the true target of their anger cowers in the shadows of the flames. By sunrise however, these heavily armed cowards suddenly rediscover that old fighting side of them and prove their shriveled manhood by laying into guitar-strumming pacifists with flailing truncheons, Covid-friendly tear gas, and a torrential downpour of barely-less-than-lethal rubber rounds. Just like schoolyard bullies and neo-Nazi skinheads, the neckless jarheads of the American police state are only badass’ when its ten against one and that one is a sickly old peacenik that could be bowled over by a stiff wind.

Tucker: No one attempted to stop Democratic power grab Reply

One important insight that Carlson provides in this, in the midst of his Spiro Agnew impersonation, is that the near universal consensus among the power elite has been in favor of cooptation rather than repression of the insurrection, and that even the right-wing of the ruling class does not regard the uprising as a genuine threat. The only section of the ruling class that has dissented from this consensus has been some of the old bourgeois sectors associated with Conservatism, Inc. and much of that seems to be faux outrage intended for the sake of producing riot porn to disseminate to their right-wing of the working to middle class constituents (i.e. the useful idiots that provide the Republican base).

Republicans have let millions of Americans down.

Richmond Police take suspect into custody near Lee Monument Reply

This is two blocks away from me. This story is still unfolding but my first thought is that this building is in an ideal location for someone to carry out a Charles Whitman-like sniper attack. No word yet on what kind of weapon he had. I’m curious to see if it was a sniper rifle.

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – Richmond Police officers take an armed suspect into custody, near the Robert E. Lee Monument Saturday.

Police said, in a tweet at 8:40 a.m., the suspect was found in a building, no shots were fired and officers were searching the building “for any other threats.”

“An unarmed people are slaves or are subject to slavery at any given moment” – Huey P. Newton, co-founder and Minister of Defense of the Black Panther Party

After a few weeks of rebellions in dozens of cities nationwide in response to the police murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Black people, in the Bay Area and beyond, have begun to plan to live in a post-COVID-19 society and a post-2020 rebellion society, which basically translates into us realizing en masse that we have nobody to depend on but ourselves for protection, safety and everything else. This is not a new concept for some, but it is very new for others.

Anyone watching television in the US has watched Black people ruthlessly shot down by police since the dawn of the Obama regime. White vigilante murders of Black people are also on the rise, with the murder of Trayvon Martin, who was barbarically stalked and murdered by George Zimmerman in Florida. And just a few days ago, Robert Fuller, a Black man, was found lynched in Palmdale, California – hanged in front of City Hall.

First came a pandemic. Then, looting. Small businesses pick up the pieces as their debt mounts. 1

A reflection on the problem of interclass and intra-lumpen proletarian conflict.

Many positive things have happened in the uprising. These include the mass participation of normies and civilians (non-revolutionaries) in protests and civil disobedience against the state, along with direct attacks on the state such as the destruction of enemy military bases (police precincts), star chambers (courts), and enemy military vehicles (police cars).

The outright assassinations of enemy troops (cops), mostly carried out by Leon Czolgosz-like lone wolves, has been unnecessary and mistaken, because we are not yet in a high-intensity civil war situation, only a low-grade uprising. The insurgents have no capacity for fighting much less winning an actual civil war at this point.

There have also been many other mistakes involving random violence against individuals, along with interracial, inter-tribal, and inter-sectarian violence. Inter-class violence has also been a problem. The direct expropriation of ruling class resources (“looting,” or what I prefer to call a grassroots economic stimulus plan organized from the bottom up and implemented through direct action) is legitimate. Places like Bank of America (neo-usurers), Wal-Mart and Target (neo-plantations), Amazon (neo-manors), McDonald’s, and Wendy (neo-sweatshops) are clearly part of the statist, capitalist, and imperialist enemy. One can argue against such actions on practical grounds (corporations write off losses as a business expense), propagandistic grounds (FOX News-like outlets use such actions in their anti-insurgent propaganda), or pro-labor grounds (employees lose their jobs if their employer is burned out). It could certainly be argued that worker occupation of such places would be a better approach. But clearly, attacks on the neo-manorial outposts of the neo-aristocracy are legitimate.

However, this does not mean that all interclass violence is legitimate. It would be a grave error, for example, to engage in arson in upper-class residential areas, or simply to attack people who seem like that might be part of the capitalist class on the street. This opens the door for a Jacobin/Stalinist/Maoist class genocide. Even more problematic is the interclass violence that has taken place between the lumpenproletariat and the conventional proletarian or petite bourgeoisie. These kinds of things have the same effect as the destruction of monuments, landmarks, temples, and artifacts, i.e. it provides propagandistic fuel that the ruling class enemy can use to its advantage.

The intra-class violence, or threats of such, within the lumpenproletariat is also a major problem. Primarily, this is the fault of the anarchists and other far-left sectors, but not for the reasons that Donald Trump would give. The anarchists, who should be the political leadership of the lumpenproletariat, have failed to build class unity among the lumpenproletariat. For example, anarchists have protested against ICE on anti-racist/pro-immigrant grounds, but have they exhibited similar zeal for defending gun nuts and militiamen against the BATF, drug users against the DEA, tax protestors against the IRS, sovereign citizens against the FBI, “white-collar criminals” against the DOJ, and, yes, urban street gangs, motorcycle gangs, Mafiosi (Bill Kuntsler was John Gotti’s attorney), cults (Charles Garry was the attorney for the Black Panthers AND the Peoples’ Temple), and (hold your nose) white nationalists and far-right extremists against the local municipal pigs, state pigs, and federal alphabet soup agency pigs? Have the anarchists adopted the mode of “defending the undefendable”? Nothing would undermine the ability of reactionary state forces to recruit the right-wing of the lumpenproletariat than efforts by anarchists and the general far-left to defend ALL (I repeat, ALL) enemies of the state as vigorously as they defend illegal migrants against ICE.

Of course, the difference is that illegal migrants are considered to be “progressive” (fueling cosmopolitanism or “diversity”) while these other sectors are considered to be “reactionary” (the modern equivalent of Marx’s “non-historical peoples”). This indicates that most “anarchists” or “far-leftists” are really just Blue Tribe fundamentalists first, with their anarcho-progressivism merely being an afterthought, and who are not yet ideologically and psychologically ready to launch a full-fledged war against the state even if they were militarily capable of doing so, which they clearly are not.

Salih Mothana came home so quietly after he surveyed the damage to his small grocery store in Chicago that his family had no idea their business had been destroyed. Looters had raided the family store after a night of peaceful protests against police brutality ended with pockets of destruction last weekend.

“I understand why it happened, and it’s OK,” Mothana, a Yemeni immigrant, said in Arabic as his daughter translated. “It’s not like I have to blame someone for this. I understand why this happened. If it sends out the message, it doesn’t matter to us.”

Mothana, who has run Express Food Market on the South Side of Chicago for over 20 years, is one of scores of small-business owners across the country who are now trying to pick up the pieces after social justice protests over the killing of George Floyd.
