Latias: Look at the comment section in this thread.
It really shows how anti-imperialist the Mainstream Left is. Look at the hostility the author gets.
From the author:
[There was a reference to Putin dining with Jill Stein]
Based on death toll, better to dine with Putin than 3 presidents in my lifetime — [W?] Bush, Reagan or Nixon. I prefer cooperation to confrontation. We don’t need a new Cold War. The world’s greatest human rights violator abroad (that’s the USA in case you don’t now) is in no position to throw stones from its glass house. The candidate you mention is not without flaws – she has some unscientific views and that’s practically inexcusable from a physician. But Putin’s crimes abroad pale in comparison to those of every single US president of my lifetime, present administration included.
Yes, that is true about Putin.
First of all, that’s not really the Mainstream Left in the US. That’s the Democratic Party, and calling the Democratic Party Left is some sort of a sick joke. Daily Kos is the site of the left wing of the Democratic Party (the base), but those people are what we might call liberal Democrats, and in my opinion, there are hardly any Americans more awful than these liberal Democrats, mostly because there is almost nothing liberal about them. Liberal Democrats in the US are basically rightwingers in most of the rest of the planet.
The problem is that both parties are utterly committed to horrific US imperialism. The US is the imperialist pig enemy of all of mankind, but both parties are just fine with that and the majority of the American people think it’s great too. So the imperialism is probably going to be one of the last things to go. Trump ran as isolationist, but he is now governing as a wildly crazed typical American imperialist pig. Recall how horrifically imperialist even Bernie Sanders was. This murderous imperialist pig crap is nearly woven into the very genes of Americans. It will be very hard to root out.
We have to support the Democratic Party though. We have no choice. They sort of suck, but the Republicans are 50X worse. And the Democrats do do quite a few good things. The problem is more that there is progressive agenda simply yields incremental change. I can live with Democrats. I can’t live with Republicans. The Republican Party is one of the most extreme rightwing parties on the whole planet.
Look, let’s get real here. The United States itself is one of the most extreme rightwing countries on the planet. That’s the people of the US. The people – Americans – are basically fanatically ultra-rightwing freaks. They are out of step with nearly the entire planet. There are hardly any nations on Earth as rightwing as the US.
The only country more rightwing than the US I can think of is Colombia. Show me any other country anywhere on Earth where majorities regularly elect parties that are as radical right as the US Republican Party. Show me one country, one.
Well I will say that the new British government is trying to copy the Republican Party. But I do not think even the horrific Tories are as bad as the Republican Party. But the Tories are probably one of the only countries on Earth that actually ape the US Republicans. US Republican Party conservatism is pretty much rejected across the board in most every country on Earth.
Just a question. How rightwing are the governments of the Baltics and the Czech Republic nowadays? I do not think they are as rightwing as the US Republican Party. Estonia and Latvia are horrible countries, and all of the Baltic countries are Nazi countries with Nazi populations. Ukraine is run by out and out Nazis and maybe half the population are out and out Nazis, but even they do not practice US Republican Party conservatism.
And the present government does not even have the support of the majority. The only reason they are in power is because they outlawed the main opposition party, murdered some of its lawmakers and quite a few of its activists, and tried to set the house of its presidential candidate on fire. They failed in the last one, setting his neighbor’s house on fire. Oh by the way, the Ukrainians had the full support of the US in all of us. The US supported them as they outlawed the opposition party, murdered opposition lawmakers and many activists and tried to burn the opposition presidential candidate to death. After all, this murderous Nazi party was put in by the US government in a US-sponsored coup.
Technically, Trump is not a fascist. Yet. But he’s close enough for me. I believe that Trump is the most fascist president this nation has ever had. We have never been this close to fascism before.
Trump is a Proto-Fascist or Pre-Fascist
Experts on fascism say that Trump is a rightwing populist. But when you go further right from rightwing populism, the next stop is overt fascism. Rightwing populism is just a way station on the Fascist Highway. Others have called him a pre-fascist or a proto-fascist. All fascism experts agree that Trump shows a number of fascist characteristics in spades. There’s just not enough to make the full diagnosis. But as he cements his dictatorship, his underlying brown t-shirt may become increasingly clear. Anyone who cannot see the fascist elements in Trump and for that matter, the criminal organization called the Republican Party does not know the meaning of the term.
Trump’s Objective Racism and Bigotry against Blacks, Hispanics and Muslims
Trump has been quite hostile to US Blacks, and the recent Holocaust Memorial statement was odd towards Jews. Trump got sued for housing discrimination against Blacks. His father engaged in housing discrimination against Blacks for decades. His Dad was also a White Supremacist, worse, an out and out Nordicist. Trump’s father was a member of the KKK and participated in anti-Catholic and anti-Italian riots in New York in the 1920’s.
Trump has nominated a very racist man, Mr. Sessions, for Attorney General. His hostility to Blacks has been palpable his whole career. The mere act of nominating Sessions as Atty General shows extreme hostility towards Blacks.
Trump called a Black man at one of his rallies a thug and told supporters to throw him out. Actually he was a Trumpster himself.
Trump got into a huge fight with John Lewis the civil rights icon soon after his election. On Martin Luther King Day of all days, he sent out tweets bashing Lewis. He also declined to make a statement about MLK as is usual or to pay a visit to the MLK Museum. The symbolism is not hard to figure out.
Trump is obviously extremely hostile to Muslims bordering on the fanatical.
Trump seems to be displaying an awful lot of racism against Mexicans and Mexican-Americans. He called them criminals and rapists in his speeches.
Trump’s right-hand man Bannon took over the Breitbart website and soon turned it much more racist. There were articles celebrating the Confederate flag and there is a section of the site called “Black Crime.” Bannon openly stated that he wished his site to be the flagship of the White Supremacist Alt Right. Under Bannon’s tenure, the site became much more racist against Blacks and hostile to gays and feminists. A Jewish former editor said the comments section became overrun with open Alt Right White Supremacists under Bannon’s tenure. Bannon stated in the past that we should restrict voting to property owners only. He noted that this would considerably reduce the Black vote and Bannon said that would be a good thing.
The Alt Right, of which Bannon says his website is the flagship website, is an actual fascist grouping whose end goal is indeed fascism, the real deal. So Bannon has lined himself up with actual fascists with a fascist project for the country.
I am dubious that Bannon is actually an out and out White Supremacist, and I think a lot of the Left’s charges against him and Breitbart are idiotic.
Trump’s cabinet is almost 100% White men. There are not even many Jews.
Alt Left? Alt Left? And meanwhile, whilst the Left splinters off into subgroups crying about Jews or Transsexuals, the Far Right railroads on, picking up more followers whilst bunch of fuckwits delay and confuse any leftwing action. Twats!
First of all, the Alt Left is a tiny movement right now. Most people have never even heard of it. What everyone thinks is the Alt Left is not the Alt Left at all. In fact, it is just the Left in all its Cultural Left SJW glory, with an emphasis on the more left elements like Sanders.
The Alt Left doesn’t talk much about Jews or trannies these days. To the extent that we do, it is only because these are interesting topics of discussion. There’s nothing much to be done with Jews or trannies or any similar entities politically anyway. Neither are going to change or go anywhere. They will stay right where they are doing just what they do.
The Alt Left is not splintering away the Left. It has extremely limited appeal on the Left anyway. Most of its adherents seem to be splitting off somewhat from the Right.
It’s a great new movement with a lot of potential. It’s not bad for the Left at all. In fact, it’s great for the Left. It doesn’t matter anyway as most of the Left thoroughly rejects the Alt Left.
Right now, the Alt Left priority is fighting against Trump and the Republicans in the US. In the UK, the Alt Left should be fighting against Cameron’s ultra-Thatcherism and the growing fascistization of your land. It should be the same in most places. The primary enemy of the Alt Left is the Right, all around the world. We do argue with some of the Modern Left because they think the Modern Left has gone insane, which is true, but the Cultural Left is not our primary enemy at the moment. They are mostly just annoying foolish morons.
Although we do not like the Cultural Left, we will make alliance with them against Trump and the Republicans if they will ally with us. Right now the Alt Left is supporting the protests against Trump, even the violent ones. We are supporting the riots, the antifa and the Black Bloc. We believe non-peaceful protest should be an option.
The Alt Left are “conservative Leftists.” We are Leftists who are somewhat socially conservative. We are also nationalists. We are similar to the Old Left in the US before the early 1960’s. We are also similar to the ideology of a lot of older Communist regimes.
- I am having a very hard time seeing how the Alt Left harms the Left at all. They don’t even like us anyway. Someone needs to explain to me how the Alt Left hurts the Left. I am just not getting it. Basically we are grabbing people who are drifting towards Trumpism and the Alt Right and shoehorning them into a corner of the Left. Our intention is to grow the Left, not shrink it.
