Now this is poetry, people. I should have this on regular rotation on my nightstand. And more Heine, too, I suppose. Few poets’ language really speaks to me, and Baca’s has always gone straight to the heart.
As part of the Progressive Asshole Tax, there ought to be a Form JB1: whether you’ve read some Jimmy Baca this year. Would read approximately as follows:
If YES, thanks for filing this form. Please itemize the poems from this year in the space below and return; notice will be filed that no further action is required.
If NO, one percent up on your taxes, jueputa!
If WHO’S JIMMY BACA?, two percent up on your taxes, asshole!
Thanks to computers, failure to show progress could be set to automatically interfere with car registration, smog certification, credit rating, passport, probation status, whatever it god damn takes to get people to spend some time with this stuff.
Here’s the treasure that Negrito and I found on our walk downtown. I can’t make this stuff up. Now we can baptize people at gunpoint much more safely! Makes one wonder nevertheless if this organization has been doing weapons training at Sacred Heart or Notre Dame in case of a Trump presidency or some other event in which Christians will feel free to further intimidate the rest of the planet. Or maybe just planning a reconquista of downtown San José from the heathens. Yknow what they say, “Alcoran or the Sword.”
Only problem is that either Northwest Christian University of Eugene Oregon got their squirtguns made wrong or some organization called Northwest Christian College is totally off the internet. I can’t stand how Google doesn’t use Boolean operators anymore, or I’m too dumb to find the switch.
Convert or die!
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.
If you’re still pretending to be astounded as to how half of the men in this country will likely vote for Trump for president, here’s a tiny bit of help: you’ve been consuming television that demonizes people of color and the poor. On top of that you don’t bat an eye at corporations exploiting those incarcerated, and therefore almost without rights, to make entertainment.
