Here’s an excellent talk by Jon Taplin of the Annenberg School of Communication at USC and father of Post-Consumer‘s Nick Taplin, on the problems of libertarian dumbshits who control the internet and also US politics. Remember kids, libertarians and neonazis are the SAME PEOPLE, Google CEO or not.
As a fairly true anarchist artist who is always about community, dialogue and exposure before “copyright,” I nevertheless appreciate Taplin’s warning that “the technological revolution is coming for all of your jobs.” Does that make me double down on copyright? Fuck no! It makes me double down on 1.) reduction of reliance on capitalism’s rules for survival and 2.) increase of sharing all things so that they don’t end up falling apart when whatever thing comes for whatever of all our things. Enjoy the video!
Was cruising through the aforementioned Traditionalist Workers’ Party‘s videos on Youtube, when we found a video from September 2016 in which the Party’s only-average, overweight uneducated over-self-esteemed normal American jealous white man “Chairman” Matthew Heimbach talk for the London Forum about his platform of racism, white imperialism and hatred of immigrants. We guess he had to go to Europe after his dumbass followers got beat in Sacramento.
The Forum is an average Libertarian white-supremacy group that masquerades just like the TWP as an anticapitalist organization, which particularly irritates this writer who is an actual anticapitalist and not just a racist who wants to make up all his own rules in a vacuum with no context and no society.
The Czech Social Justice Workers’ Party provided the facility for the video. In it the barely literate 25-year-old mansplainer Heimbach, who wears a Celtic cross that he does not understand, bitched in the video about how British PM Theresa May barred him (in a personal letter, allegedly) from visiting England. Are they sharp over there, or what? The British must have like zero terrorist attacks and zero refugees sneaking in through the Chunnel, what with the kind of oversight it takes to catch little old white trash from Middle America and prevent them from coming over for a conference.
Heimbach goes on to praise the racist and xenophobic Brexit and spin the same tired yarns of nationalism versus globalism and other naive, essentially lazy and selfish perspectives on history and economic reality. The “next David Duke” asks us to consider the world as it is as an inheritance from ancestors and ignore that the ancestors and other people’s ancestors (a terribly divisive idea in itself!) worked their asses off, often together, to make the world that they now want to tear apart.
The story behind this is that the London Forum and the Traditionalist Workers’ Party have evidently tried to strike up an intercontinental relationship between white supremacist groups. Both whine about how (white) ethnicity, culture and religion are being intentionally destroyed by bankers and plutocrats, while, logically, allowing all other ethnicities cultures and religions to flourish, and it’s just a hatred for white-ism that drives it all.
Everyone should be concerned that these tiny groups of idiots are organizing, amplifying their voices via social media, and vying for a spot before the irresponsible, yellow attentions of mass media, who will show anything sensational, despite the fact that what they show invariably metastasizes into movements of ignorant people. For an example of this we may look no further than CNN, FOX, NPR and NBC’s fabrication of the Donald Trump presidential candidacy and the army of stupid people ready to support it.
The Party works hard to try to legitimize itself without leaving off indulgence in the classical Nazi and KKK buzzword doublespeak indicated above and elsewhere. On their videos the TWP takes pains to describe itself as a “legally constituted political party.” Why insist on this? Because it separates them semantically from a hate group, a terror organization. But let’s not be dense. These groups are only a few hundred Facebook Likes away from becoming recruitment organs or even front organizations for larger terror groups and plutocrat thinkers (like the “anarcho-capitalists”) who do not establish Vaterlands nor protect their stupid members from immigrants, but rather just use the groups’ labor and money to uphold the status quo.
To be fair, this kind of Libertarianism does sort of represent a dark side of anarchism. If anarchism is living free of force, in the community of our choice, by the responsible and ethical means of our choice, then Libertarianism, Nazism, London Forumism and KKKism are what happen when one just focuses on wanting the community of one’s choice, that is, the most reduced context possible to perceive, such as the suburban Man Cave. This is a philosophy that wants all the trappings of globalist society and its wasteful products without having to live with those who produce it.
The lesson here is that we have to always consider our context, and live by anarchism always in the service of harmony, generosity and attention to our natural lives. Nature when not disturbed by human selfishness is absolutely balanced, absolutely abundant, and absolutely not wasteful. These Traditionalist Morons will never get there, even with the help of their old gray British peers.
You may have heard about the march on Sacramento by the Traditionalist Workers’ Party last weekend that went awry and degenerated (to use one of the Party’s favorite words) into violence when Sacramento Antifa showed up and confronted the marchers. The problem with stupid people is that they think everyone else is as dumb as them. This Party should not fool anyone else with their “traditional” antics.
Having reviewed the hayfork-wielding Party’s website and read its shoddy, uneducated slogans, we feel compelled, as a public service, to bust down their phraseology and reveal the Party’s sources of inspiration. All you dumbass Americans’ problem is that you don’t respect history and barely know how to read; really you deserve to get exterminated by fascists like Trump or the Traditionalists, because you’re too voluntarily stupid to run a real society. But that’s just me.
Anyhow, since you probably haven’t bothered to research fascism, here is a brief glossary connecting the Party’s website to fascists of the past and present.
Here are the easy ones:
Anti-Christian Degeneracy: people who aren’t white and Christian. In a specifically contemporary context, Muslim people. More importantly, “degenerate” (entartet) is a Hitler word adopted often by neonazis and also the KKK.
Faith, Family and Folk: any American who uses the word Folk and is not referring to Gordon Lightfoot, one’s own family, or a music festival, is likely using the Hitler word Volk. Yeah, like Volkswagen, you nazi American commuter!
Traditional Families and Entitlement System: Used in the same paragraph! Here the white supremacist, nazi underpinnings of even the Republican party are visible here. They use the same traditional families line that Hitler and countless fascists used, here with the American spin of gutting the social safety net so that non-whites (who belong in separate but equal ghettos according to the Party) will be sacked for resources and then denied any help when their families are unstable. This is a little distinct from Hitler, who talked of “making shared sacrifices” and tried to unite the German Volk in word without mention of the others.
Here are some trickier ones:
The reader may think that this is contradictory to hating Muslims above. Understand: this is one of those for-us-only things where they make it sound like they want freedom for everyone, when anyone who looks will see that they mean religious freedom for everyone when white Christians are already on top and can direct and control the whole situation, like Christianity did more or less until the 1990s.
Read it again: here and elsewhere they bitch about the separation of church and state. That means a Christian fascist state is the context in question. When you read this stuff you have to think about domination at all times.
Had to put these two in to show the Libertarian bent. It sounds like someone was talking like a Republican and then sort of changed their mind midsentence, right? That’s called Libertarian talk. A lot of that economic protectionism, celebration of the Land while also stripmining it, goes back to Hitler’s land management thing, the Landjahr for the Hitler Youth, etc. So now you have proof positive that your white friends who are too edgy for Republicanism (or who are Californians) and claim Libertarian are actually neonazis. You probably already knew that, though. Also, notice that “environmental policy” is based strictly on the ability to exploit, not to rehabilitate or preserve, the land’s life systems.
Finally, come on. “Workers Party” ? What, are you an industrial union from 1880? Refer to the NSDAP, the National Socialist German WORKERS PARTY, or the Nazis for those of you too thick to make the connection. The neonazism is right there in the name of the organization!
So there you have it. There are useful things about this reading, like recalling that Christianity and capitalism are inherently fascist (Islam and Judaism are too, but thst’s another blog post), and will always give rise to fascist movements.
It’s very important that we be able to defend ourselves from bullshit with history and information! Remember, if you’re ever not sure what an American is saying about the country and you don’t have a semantician or historian handy, just ask any Native American, and s/he can set you straight.
Please comment below if you need more examples and we will do some more. Find your local Traditionalist cell, infiltrate it, and humiliate those dipshits in public!
Boy, as if having a stupid television show about hicks and their garage weren’t damaging enough to the cause of anarchy, now there’s these Ludwig von Mises nitwits. Haven’t heard of them? Read the comic! Click the link below!
I swear that, now you’ve read it, you’ll start seeing these books in the hands of people you know who’re supposed to be smart. Still curious? Read what the Southern Poverty Law Center found out about them…
Americans need guns and pills so bad that they have to 3D print them at home now. But why do they need guns and pills so bad anyway?
Click the link to read the comic at the Nosemilk! Thanks for still letting me write for you, guys!
Look what I found on Craigslist! The article is asking for contributors to write for this website: "With the transformational socialist San Carlos Transit Village Housing Projects set to break ground in San Carlos and begin the process of annhiliating [sic] what is left of San Mateo County Peninsula suburbs, and with virtually zeros [sic] resistance to such projects; with an at best complacent and at worse nonexistent and archaic print and television media; the time is ripe for some radically fresh ideas... Like those pertaining to liberty, private property, and inalienable individual rights. See http://sclpf.org for a sampling of the type of writing we are seeking to expose this frightening pack 'n stack communist compound/housing movement."
Somebody please write articles and cartoons making fun of these fools because I simply just don’t have the time!
As of 22 June 2014, the website last saw an article on the first of November 2013, so clearly they need (or more likely he needs) more writers. The link to “attack zones,” amongst others, had not been activated yet. These guys are gonna take the power back from nonexistent bay area socialists, minorities, young people, and people slightly richer and more privileged than themselves.
Let’s examine their “libertarian” (read: stupid) rhetoric in the Craigslist ad as well as in the article on their site to which the article refers:
The proclamation “…the transformational socialist San Carlos Transit Village Housing Projects set to break ground in San Carlos [will] begin the process of annihilating what is left of San Mateo County Peninsula suburbs…” is connected to problems of “liberty [and] private property.”
OK ready? Watch:
1. They’re mad that a developer bought the Malibu Gran Prix, a presumably suburban entertainment complex, and shut it down. Even though a developer bought where the authors live now, threw out its Ohlone and other inhabitants, and put houses on top of it. So if a developer with tons of money buys a property, it’s somehow more nefarious or unfair than the authors’ ability to buy suburban housing and disenfranchise all the working people who can’t afford a suburban house.
2. They’re mad that suburbs are threatened (WOW, I’m stumped). If we follow their logic, suburbs are the living emblem of individual property rights and liberty in these people’s lives. Alright dudes.
3. They think, therefore, that an “agenda 21 style land grab” is necessary to build dense housing near transportation hubs (which would be terrible! Why would you do that???).
4. And of most dire insult: the authors ended the blog entry with “Criminals and vandals ransack property almost immediately upon closure.” So San Mateo (a famous local heartland of racist/classist systemic planning with a reputation going back at least to the 1950s) apparently is a suburban fortress for the white and wealthy but somehow has ransackers and vandals living somewhere who easily can jump out and ruin closed properties. Do they do it after they end their shifts at Starbucks and McDonalds or what? Libertarians, have you ever asked yourself where this may come from?
So where were you guys when the only affordable neighborhood of downtown San Jose was knocked down and buried under 280? Or when San Francisco’s living history was erased to make room for employees of Yahoo and Twitter?
Further, the site claims that San Carlos, a town of 28,000 wealthy classists and barely 100 years old, has a “traditional identity.” Let’s open a restaurant for this! We can serve El Camino Trash Burgers and discuss the illustrious history of highway 101 and its may dramatic expansions.
