left radicalism

it does genuinely kind of make me mad that a large amount of conservatives think that on november 4 antifa is “planning to overthrow the government” and then when it inevitably doesnt at all happen because of course it wont happen im gonna see a bunch of shit like ‘antifa has failed, the american people stand strong!!” like genuinely it’s nearly impossible to convince any centrist or conservative that 99% of the things they’re being told about all the horrible violent leftists are just blatant lies. even mainstream liberal politicians and media outlets do nothing to dispel the misinformation because it isn’t in their interest to admit that actually, no, the radical left isn’t just as bad

Some extremely common lies used to turn the public against a protest

“Most of those who were arrested at the protest about this local issue were not from the neighbourhood”
Very often untrue. Outsiders posing as ‘concerned local citizens’ does happen but this is almost entirely a strategy of white supremacists. Anarchists and other left wing radicals don’t use this stategy as it runs counter to their goal of winning over the people.
Some ways the police manipulate statistics:
- defining ‘the neighbourhood’ in extremely narrow terms
- assuming all those arrested who did not give their address are outsiders
- just plain making up statistics.

“The road block prevented emergency services from doing their job”
Almost always untrue. Road blocks pretty much without exception allow ambulances to pass. When police report this some likely explanations are:
- ‘emergency services couldn’t pass’ just means ‘the police couldn’t pass’
- the police organized a blatant trap, driving an ambulance to the blockade followed closely by lots and lots of riot cops, and the blockade didn’t fall for the obvious trick.
- it’s pure fiction

“A mindless mob destroyed it’s own neighbourhood.”
Just not what protestors, rioters or mobs do. Some reasons you may hear it:
- protestors entered local stores to get essential supplies to defend themselves against police violence
- protestors destroyed windows close to protest lines because that is much safer than waiting for a rubber bullet to smash that window and send glass flying everywhere
- locals damaged businesses known to collaborate with the police
- locals destroyed surveillance equipment
- locals accepted an amount of physical damage to their neighbourhood in the struggle and their efforts to clean up and repair the next day were not covered by the media
- the police send people into the protest whose only intention was to cause mayhem and reck the neighbourhood.
- More fiction

There are way more like these and different police forces and governments have a different set if them that they use often. Know some? Reblog and add!

what next? if a girl who was held captive by her abuser was suffering from stockholm syndrome liberal regressive feminists would be like “BuT-But she ~LIKES being abused see she likes her abuser! her choice!!1 A girl could be anorexic and starving herself and liberal feminists would be like “Umm sweaty its her body her choice. if she wants to starve, you go girl!! you lose those calories woo!11 

you have to realize that some ~choices are heavily influenced by other things and you have to observe the thought processes and causes behind it. 

Feminists be like:

I’m all about women’s choice to do whatever they want unless those things are:

-wanting to have kids

-voting republican

-being right-leaning

-wanting to be a housewife

-not wanting to be a feminist 

-wanting to stay at home

-not being a socialist/communist

-wanting to be married

-wanting to be fit

-liking thing I deem “misogynist”

-being against abortion

-wanting to be feminine

-being conservative

-wanting to be traditional

THE COMING INSURRECTION by The Invisible Committee

It’s useless to wait - for a breakthrough, for the revolution, the nuclear apocalypse or a social movement. To go on waiting is madness. The catastrophe is not coming, it is here. We are already situated WITHIN the collapse of a civilization. It is within this reality that we must choose sides.
