seeing a lot of people make the point that liberals, when faced with the option of socialism or fascism will choose fascism but it’s worse than that. what we’re seeing in the uk is that liberals will choose fascism over fucking *mild* social democracy.
you have guardian ‘centre leftists’ making excuse after excuse about how the left is too mean to them on twitter or some pointless shit so they’re going to vote for the Sensible Theresa May when in reality they are just far more comfortable with may’s fascist rhetoric than corbyn’s call to fully renationalise the nhs or pay people livable wages.
there was a guardian article about the world transformed, momentum’s fringe event at the labour conference and in it the journalist basically spoke to all these young activists about why they want to change the world and how they’re going to do it and ended the article with what amounted to ‘but what about people like me who don’t want the world to change?’ like if that doesn’t sum up the guardian and liberals i don’t know what does. imagine talking to people who clearly represent the feelings of a majority of people who find the current situation unsurvivable and your takeaway being ‘this is a bit scary for people like me who get paid 6 figures to write articles.’
these people are not on our side and never will be. we need to just start bypassing them completely and stop looking to them for approval.
